Never under estimate the power of quality. I learned how to make these while working in an old school French bistro where they changed the menu everyday and only made traditional country dishes from this region. Some days it was tete de veau, other days it was some locally caught rabbit. French are fiercely proud of their heritage. I'm so excited to share this recipe that feels like part of my life.

One of my signature dishes after I returned from France, was Provencal Tomatoes. They are easy to make, but always seemed to taste better if you were in France.

Spring is here, and the mint in my garden is happy and abundant! It inspired me to make mint macaroons. You can make these with or without chocolate. Two recipes with the same procedures to follow. Light and not too sweet. Just right.

...Hence, this lovely oat flour muffin! It's mildly sweet as a muffin should be and very satisfying. Use other fruits for fun, if you have them in season.

If you have a pizzelle maker, you're my hero! Let's be friends! These cookies are so fun and very traditional at the holidays. The smell of anise and sugar is one from my childhood that makes me smile. It's a very particular association that most Italians have. If you haven't tried them before, call an Italian friend and ask if you can borrow their pizzelle maker to try them out. If you have an ice cream cone maker, you can also use that. (A waffle iron is too deep.) These irons are around…

Briciole is that dish that Marie makes Frank in "Everybody Loves Raymond." No wonder he falls in love with her and she gets jealous when Raymond's wife learns to cook it! If you don't know the episode I'm referring to, its worth a watch for the fun factor.  This is my simplified version. Use real cow dairy or dairy alternative. Either way its sure to please...

I was talking to a friend and childhood foods came up. One of the ones I remember fondly was chicken fried rice and Egg foo young. I haven't eaten Chinese out in over 2 decades due to the MSG and poor quality oils, so I took it upon myself to recreate from memory my culinary experience. This is a simplified version without the water chestnuts and pan fried in organic avocado oil. The sauce is the magical component. If you can't have soy, maybe try coconut aminos.

Pasta is good... But how good is it really without the sauce? Its a textural vehicle for the butter, marinara, pesto or Alfredo you smother it in. For a grain free version all you need is a spiralizer! One of my favorite and fun kitchen gadgets. Inexpensive and priceless at the same time. Check out my aStore for the one I use.   What an easy way to get in your veggies... Buon Appetito!

This has turned into my favorite go-to breakfast. It's fast and easy, but what I like most is that the fats in the Organic bacon get me all the way to lunch and beyond!

One of things I loved when I used to eat out was the ginger dressing you would get on your salad when you ordered at a Japanese restaurant. Pungent and a little sweet. I found the right combinations with wholesome ingredients to make it just like the real thing.  ​This dressing is on the sweet side, so adjust to your taste.

My Birthday often fell at Easter growing up and my mom loved to make me a carrot cake shaped like a lamb. So since this year my birthday was a few days before Easter, again, I thought I'd come up with something different that mimicked my mom's idea.   The dessert name "truffle" derives from their traditional shape, which resembles the truffle mushroom. You can roll them in cocoa powder or nuts of choice. Theses carrot ones are mildly sweet with a hint of warm spices. Raw and Vegan. I keep…

2 cups Nuts ( I used part Walnut and part Pecan) 1 cup Madjool Dates 2 tsp. Apple Pie Spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, all spice mix) Pinch of Sea Salt 4 drops of Stevia 3 cups.

If you like the creamy, sweet taste of butternut squash, you will love this soup! A light hint of fresh pungent ginger and creamy coconut cream make this soup a hit with all my clients. Super easy to make and very hearty.   Time to share the goodness...  Wholesome Goodness!

This is a great way to use up any extra raw crust when making tarts. They are a fun snack that you can make in a rainbow of flavors using dried fruit mixed with your choice of nuts and seeds. Adding things like cocoa powder or other nutritious powders to change the outcome. Have fun and make it just right for you!

This is such a refreshing spring or summer tart! Full of flavor with a zing of lemon and added locally grown fresh berries... When I was a little girl, for my birthday, I would usually be asked what kind of cake I wanted. Chocolate? or Vanilla? Strawberry or lemon was my choice! This tart brings both together magnificently. MMMMMMmmmmmmm! My clients like it so much, that I figured I better share so everyone can benefit. Happy Spring!

Monkey Bread? Oh yeah.... MONKEY bread! I don't know if it's a real thing or if my mom just called it that for us as kids cuz it was fun, but monkey bread is a great name for it! It falls apart after baking into balls. No throwing, now!  You can make it plain, cinnamon, herb... whatever you like. I show both applications here for plain and cinnamon.  This recipe is for after you have a ready-dough.

I wait all year for Persimmons to be in season. It's a short one! They are perfect for Thanksgiving as they look like little pumpkins! I love pie, but it's often way too sweet for me. I've included a nice mildly sweet version that you can adjust to your sweetness level.  This pie is also super made with Granny Smith APPLES! I had two pie crusts, so one of each it is!

This is great for the holidays or just anytime. I keep it ready for action for company or after-dinner mint. This recipe is for my friend Tony. He is a Standard American Eater who just recently found out about the benefits of coconut oil. He was a coconut hater previously. This is  a good reminder that the quality of the food makes a difference.  He's noticed his skin is softer after months of taking 2 tbs/day.I was inspired by the peppermint in the garden to make a much more fun version.
