This recipe was a reader request.  Surprisingly I’ve never made a broccoli-only soup.  I’ve never been much of a fan of cream-based soups, as I find them too rich, but this healthy version is really great!  It has creaminess, so for the cream-soup lovers, I think this will be a great substitute! Healthy Cream of […]

Once upon a time, a healthy version of these cookies was only a dream.  Growing up, my mom used to make these every year as part of her Christmas cookie stash.

Grain Free Apple Pie

You won’t miss the flour in this grain free apple pie. So decadent and delicious, it rivals traditional apple pie. Coconut flour is pretty tough to work with as it absorbs so much moisture and needs a lot of eggs to hold it together. I’ve tried various desserts with coconut flour, and this pie crust […]
