Coconut Bark-Almond Joy

Oh my goodness! I have found a new love. Homemade candy using the healthiest ingredients (no guilt trips!). In our family we have been using organic, virgin coconut oil. It is solid at room temperature and melts at 76 degrees. Organic, virgin coconut oil is reported to be an aid to health as an anti-microbial, […]

Cashew Milk

I make Cashew Milk using organic, raw cashews in the VitaMix. I soak 1 cup of organic, raw cashews in 6 cups of pure water overnight in the fridge. (I sometime add 8 organic pitted dates along with the cashews to soak.) In the morning, I take the VitaMix container and slowly get the speed […]

Reuben, Low-Carb, Gluten-Free

Shalom Y’all, OK, so I’m Jewish and I love Jewish deli food. It’s in my blood. Really! (Seriously, my triglycerides were screaming!) One of my favorite deli sandwiches is a Reuben. Mmmmm, dense toasted, buttered Jewish rye bread with caraway seed piled high with thinly-sliced corned beef (or pastrami), Swiss Cheese, sauerkraut and Russian Dressing. […]

Flax Pizza Tutorial: Low-Carb, Gluten-Free & Egg-Free

Shalom! I have decided this is my favorite pizza crust for my Diabetic, Low-Carb, real Food diet. It is SOOO delectable that my hubby (non-low-carb) enjoys it as much as I do and I have to fight him for it. The crust is supple yet sturdy (holds up to toppings and cheese). The flavor is […]

Chicken Pot Pie

Mmmmmmm. I talk a great deal about “Comfort Food.” This recipe is one of the all-time family favorites and there are oodles of variations. Not only is Chicken Pot Pie satisfying, and yummy, it also uses leftovers in a most delicious way. Use cooked chicken or turkey and any combination of cooked, leftover or frozen […]

Resurrection Cookies

This is a recent family tradition, but one that the children enjoy each year. The recipe has been around the Internet for many years and the author is unknown. If any reader has the information to give credit to the author of these wonderful object lessons, please email me. This recipe includes a good Bible […]

Ableskivers! Woo Hoo!

Time to be honest… have you been eying those “Pancake Puff” pans on TV and all the delicious puffs you could make with it? You’re not alone! (See the wonder of marketing? LOL!) Unfortunately, the pan offered on television is not the best quality and it’s covered in non-stick coating (which I don’t consider safe […]

Mug O’ Chocolate Cake

Shalom Y’all, I know some don’t have, or don’t use microwaves, so if you don’t, please feel free to skip this post. I haven’t been able to duplicate this recipe without the microwave. If you come up with the same results using something other than a microwave, PLEASE email me at I made this […]
