I am thrilled to announce we are returning to the Gluten & Allergy Free Expo that will be held at the San Mateo County Fair Grounds this January 25th and 26th!

The Expo is the premier gluten and allergen free event in the US. Whether you are looking for specialty products that taste great or trying to learn how to cook and bake to meet your dietary needs, the Expo is the place to be!

STRANDED. That's what we were. Nevermind the fact that we were on a tiny 7 by 5 mile island off of Puerto Rico... We were stranded with no cash, no phone, no car key, not even a towel! We could practically see Douglas Adams shaking his head in disapproval at us.

I’m going to come clean here and admit something that I am not very proud of.  Over the past month or so I have produced an overwhelming amount of non-paleo, non-glutenfree, full sugar, overly creamfilled, milk chocolate loving desserts.  Real talk.  I fell off the paleo baking wagon and I fell hard.  I made the unfortunate decision of looking past my well loved coconut nectar flour and falling into the contraband arms of plain ol granulated sugar delights.

Happy Eggnog Month! Errr... November. :)

If you love eggnog but are now eating paleo or even just dairy-free, this eggnog is for you! It is stupid simple to make and only requires 4 ingredients! Eggs, coconut sugar, almond milk and nutmeg. 5 if you want the adult version ;)

When my sister and I were kids, we used to create breakfast-in-bed menus and take them to our parents. Inside the menu, our parents would find checkboxes next to a list of our offerings: things like eggs, pancakes, waffles, toast, coffee, OJ, hot cocoa, or milk. After they'd made their selection we'd retreat back to the kitchen to assemble their order. Occasionally we'd try to get creative and they would end up with olive pancakes or coffee with grenadine. But no matter what we made, I think they were always appreciative.
