Easy Blueberry Peach Crisp {Paleo & Vegan}


A friend of ours gave us a HUGE bag of fresh peaches that were sweet, juicy, and absolutely delicious! But she gave us so many that there was no way we could have eaten all of them before they went bad, so I decided to make this easy peach crisp along with some fresh blueberries […]

angel food cake1

You just can’t go through summer without  a good ‘ol angel food cake with berries and cream! Especially since it’s my husbands favorite dessert – I pretty much have to make it Most of my recipes are grain free but not many of them are grain AND nut free! This was possible because I used […]

Lemon Meringue Pie

lemon merangue

I finally perfected my lemon meringue pie… now I can go all sorts of places! Not really. But the filling is a basic lemon curd recipe that can be used many different ways. Technically this is a lemon meringue tart because I used a tart pan and the filling is a lemon curd instead of […]

Grain Free Fruit Squares

I originally set out to make a batch of my Oatmeal Fruit Squares (sooo good by the way!), but at the last minute decided to make a grain free version. They have a shortbread-type crust, sweet fruit filling, and a streusel-like topping… all grain, dairy, and refined sugar free (depending on the type of preserves you buy)!!! […]

Grain Free Pop Tarts

I’ve wanted to make almond flour pop tarts for quite some time now and I finally got around to it… I don’t know why I waited so long! My kids didn’t even know what they were, they kept repeating the word “pop tart” over and over and saying “is that right, is that what they’re […]

Orange Pineapple Coconut Smoothie {Dairy And Refined Sugar Free}

pineapple coconut smoothie

We have a Frullati Cafe & Bakery at a local mall and I absolutely love their smoothies! My favorite is their orange pineapple coconut smoothie. I’ve been trying to replicate it for some time now but all the recipes I’ve tried just seem bland compared to the one from Frullati. But after making this Orange […]

Oatmeal Fruit Squares

oatmeal fruit squares

These little fruit squares remind me of fruit and grain breakfast bars. After making these and then proceeding to eat almost the entire pan in one afternoon, it reminded me of my high school days when I would eat 3 or 4 of those breakfast bars a day -that’s way too many! I used 1/2 […]

Peach Cobbler {Grain & Dairy Free}

peach cobbler 012

When making cobblers, my preferred method is to use a traditional drop-biscuit crust. Some people say the biscuits on top look like cobblestones, which may be where the name “cobbler” comes from. But regardless if that is true or not, the biscuits form golden brown molds that are crisp on the outside and soft and […]

Blueberry Streusel Muffins / Coffee Cake

blueberry muffins

I got this recipe when my husband and I got married almost 9 years ago from a long-time family friend and have been making them ever since (Shirley Brockhouse if anyone knows her). I think that they are the best blueberry muffins I’ve ever eaten! I just had to make a few adjustments to make […]

Dairy Free Key Lime Pie

key lime pie

  Coming up with a dairy free key lime pie recipe was much harder than I thought. After all, the only thing that needed to be changed was the sweetened condensed milk. But no matter what I did, I couldn’t get the recipe to work. That’s when I had a idea–lemon bars! Lemon bars??? How […]

Fruit Filled Thumbprint Cookies

thumbprint cookies

So these cute little cookies are made from my leftover pie crust. They are crunchy, but hold together well, have a nice buttery taste, get their sweetness from the preserves on top, and look like little jewels. They tasted almost like a shortbread cookie to me. Or maybe a tiny fruit pie??? I’m not sure. […]

Gluten Free Blackberry Cobbler

blackberry cobbler 010

There are many different ways to make the crust for a blackberry cobbler, but I went with a traditional biscuit topping. Instead of forming whole biscuits, though, I dropped little pieces of the batter all across the top-kinda like a cobblestone road…. hence, cobbler The filling is just a little but runny, but as it […]
