    Almond flour & Coconut Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

    These are so good. I am eating one right now. Wait, it’s only 10 am? Actually, I’ve been thinking about these cookies for an hour and I’m impressed I waited this long. You will love them too! In keeping with my current theme, these cookies are dairy and grain free! Normally I research recipes and use a combination of ideas to create my own. In this case, I used the exact recipe from http://minimalistbaker.com/almond-meal-cookies-with-chocolate-chips-and-coconut/ and the only thing I changed was to increase the chocolate chips. Next time I’ll double the recipe 🙂 Ingredients: 1 ¼ cup almond flour ½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut 1/3 cup brown sugar ½ tsp baking powder ¼ tsp salt ½ edges begin to brown cup (or more) chocolate chips 1 egg 3 tbs coconut oil, melted ½ tsp…

    Coconut Curry Soup with Shrimp

    Last night we had coconut curry soup with shrimp and it was my favorite of all the soups I’ve made. I often have a craving for a soup just like this and end up buying it (from Cambodiana Restaurant DT Kingston) because I had no idea it would be such a cinch to make.  My mind is racing with variations of curry soup – there will be more to come!

Since I knew this soup wouldn’t be accompanied with rice, I needed to make it hearty and filling. For the base I used a combination of sweet potato, coconut…

    Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

    This is so good! I ate a lot at once and it kept me wanting more. I originally made it as breakfast, but after sampling it (immediately after combining ingredients, and long before it was set), I knew this was a dessert – heavy on the syrup :). This is dairy free and grain free but full flavor. Ingredients: 1 cup almond milk ¼ cup chia seeds ¼ cup cocoa 1-3 tbs maple syrup (honey or agave nectar would work well) Directions: Combine all ingredients in a mason jar (or anything with a tight fitting lid) and leave in the fridge for 3 hours or overnight. I was excited to eat this right away, but you could top it with anything you’d like – fruit, granola, nuts etc. Note: There are lots of options! If you don’t want chocolate, skip the cocoa and add ½ tsp of…
