There’s no magic to making homemade granola. It’s so easy and so convenient to have on hand with milk for breakfast, over yogurt, topping ice cream or just eaten by the handfuls! It’s also way cheaper to make your own and tailor it your way. Using yummy natural ingredients like apple butter, agave, blackstrap molasses and pure maple syrup also means the granola is going to taste spectacular!

If you are not feeling as healthy and as energetic as you would like, even on a gluten-free diet, perhaps now is a good time to take a 40 day challenge.

Latkes have come to mean “Potato Pancakes” in common parlance, but nowhere does it say that they must be made with potatoes. This is the first of two new posts using the wonderfully versatile, über-healthy and easy to cook, Spaghetti Squash.

A yummy, healthy, totally easy treat that makes jack-o-lantern carving even more fun! If you prefer sweet to salty munchies, simply sprinkle the pepitas (pumpkin seeds) with cinnamon-sugar instead of salt.

Traditional zucchini bread has always seemed unnaturally high in oil to me, so early on, I worked to make a light, airy and not oily zucchini bread that I could enjoy without the guilt. I use fruit and sour cream (non-dairy) to compensate for the reduced fat and sugar, and the results are fantastic: moist, fluffy and crunchy on the top (my son’s favorite part!). I like to make this bread as mini-loaves or muffins so I can share the love with friends. They’ll want more, I promise!

Summer means pie. But if you’re one of those folks who shudders at the thought of making a gluten-free pie crust, I have great news for you: the latest “fashion” in pies is the “Rustic Crust,” which simply means that even for fruit pies, only one crust is necessary. No need to worry about rolling and transferring a top crust, which is what usually gives people the trouble. The end result is a home-style pie with a gorgeous free-formed crust that’s light and flaky, and totally un-fussy!
