Probiotic Chocolate Pudding {with sweet potato and dates}

In my quest for kid friendly recipes that incorporate ‘makes mom happy’ ingredients, I stumbled on this fun recipe of chocolate pudding with sweet potatoes. Just by looking at it, I could tell it had potential but I was very pleasantly surprised by the outcome. It was creamy and smooth […]

orange gummy bears

Homemade Orange Gummy Bears

Gummy bears are such cute little treats, I always feel like I should be playing with them rather then eating. My kids really enjoy them as well but even my favorite natural brand is overly sweet and has some ingredients that make me wonder why they are there. Since I […]

Lemon Pudding {self-saucing}

Reminiscent of souffle, lemon pudding is a combination of melt-in-your-mouth spongy cake with a layer of cream. I have all the ingredients on hand any given day, and can quickly whip it together with no special prep. The layers separate on their own, with the cream collecting at the bottom. […]

probiotic blood orange pudding

Probiotic Blood Orange Chia Pudding

I’m adding another recipe to my collection of ‘ things to make with kefir or yogurt‘. Blood orange chia pudding is a very simple, filling and fun meal that can easily perform as dessert. I’m on a good streak with my kefir production, thanks to Yemoos kefir grains, and my […]

green smoothie

Green Smoothie {that doesn’t hurt my taste buds}

Every now and then, I go through crisis of craving something green and fresh. Perhaps to retaliate for missing nutrients, my body punishes my taste buds via forced consumption of some green goop, aka juices or smoothies. To minimize the traumatic effect of ‘green’ on my soul, I am resigned […]

Spelt Hamburger Buns {or make them with Einkorn}

I have tried numerous bun/roll recipes before I found my absolute favorite — spelt hamburger buns. Oftentimes, homemade buns bear only a vague resemblance to pillow-soft and picture perfect commercial stuff. But these guys are truly something special — soft, fluffy, light and beautiful. They are perfect for burgers and […]

Homemade Granola Clusters {Gluten Free}

Do you ever get a fixation on a project to the point that you can’t settle until you achieve perfection? I can’t say that such state of mind afflicts me too often.. but when it does, it almost always relates to a recipe, or a cooking technique.  My kitchen turns […]

Soaked Pecan Maple Fudge ~ gluten free, vegan, paleo

This nourishing treat makes a beautiful finishing touch to our family meals. The simplicity of the recipe is hardly an indication of the rich and decadent flavor of this fudge. My entire family goes crazy for it, and of course I love it because I know every single wholesome ingredient […]

Chicken Liver Pate

There are two types of people that eat and appreciate liver, those who grew up in a culture where it was considered a normal, not an ‘ewww, weird’ kind of food, and those who are trying really hard to love it because of its amazing health benefits and its status […]

Sourdough Einkorn Goldfish Crackers

The first time I made these sourdough einkorn goldfish crackers, my immediate impulse after tasting them was to get a lottery ticket. Which would have been unnecessary since I had already hit the jackpot with this amazing recipe. These crackers taste just like cheez-its and hold a beautiful shape of […]

Sourdough Einkorn Pretzel Rolls

Wholesome food doesn’t have to taste bland, and our Sourdough  Einkorn Pretzel Rolls are a proof! These little guys are complements of my beer brewing, bread baking husband who has enough patience to experiment with ratios, cultures and temperatures until he gets a perfect result. This recipe is made with […]

Kefir Squeezies

This snack is so simple to make that it’s hard to even call it a recipe. I make these kefir squeezies instead of the tubed yogurt that my kids really like. Even the organic ‘good’ brands use ingredients I don’t really want in my kids’ food, like carrageenan, artificial flavors, […]
