2-Ingredient Stuffed Dates (vegan + paleo)

Confession: I’m mad for anything caramel. Or butterscotch. Or generally brown sugar-y sweet. Mad. I pilfered brown sugar straight from the box as a child and scavenged for caramel candies in my gran’s jar of Brach’s candies. But caramelfiends need to consider their physical health (and teeth!) as much as their mental health, which is …

Coconut Oil Granola (vegan+glutenfree)

Classically trained chefs can teach you to make countless masterpieces. For example, a silken hollandaise, a skillfully seared lamb chop,  or a delicate dacquoise. But they cannot guide you in the making of a perfect granola. Granola is an American invention, and is better off made with the old-fashioned American ingenuity of the home cook. In my early …

Spicy Rosemary Walnuts {Paleo, Gluten-Free}

Instead, I offer a brief story of Ash Soup. It was not intentional. It began life late Wednesday afternoon as a …
