Peanutbutter Poppers

My last cookie experiment of the day is a little popper that melts in your mouth but won’t stick to your hips! We make our own peanutbutter from dry roasted peanuts but if you use store bought peanut butter you may want to omit the honey

Chocolate Torte Video!

Check out our new video for the Chocolate Raspberry Torte (ok, we didn’t have any raspberries on hand, so we used strawberries and called it Chocolate Berry Torte 😉

Chocolate Raspberry Torte

Ok, in my previous bean cake creations I mention that these low sugar, gluten free natural treats were something to dance about if you had food allergies or other dietary restrictions and could not partake of normal cakes and other decadent desserts. But this new torte changes all that. My new recipe for […]

Gluten Free Banana Cake with Walnut Dream Frosting

I get a lot of people asking me about gluten free cooking. My book, The 30-Day Vegetarian does have many gluten free meal ideas, but when it came to cakes I had been at a loss to replicate the moist and light texture within a whole foods paradigm. That was until I discovered […]
