Easy Homemade Applesauce

Store bought applesauce is convenient and can be low in additives if you buy a good brand. But after discovering how easy it is to make (and how full of flavor!) I may never go back.

I used to steam apples and puree them for my son’s baby food. It was the first food he […]

This little margarita mocktail is bursting with citrus flavor, getting most of its sweetness from fresh-pressed orange juice. It packs a punch of vitamin C to revive you on a hot summer day!

I added just a touch of powdered sugar. Did you know you can easily make your own if you don’t have it […]

Quick Paleo Turkey Chili (with Kale & Bacon)

I changed up the way I make chili tonight and it was so delicious I had to share it with you! First, I crisped up some chopped bacon and set it aside. Then I dropped diced bell pepper and onion into the bacon fat for extra flavor. To the veggies, I added turkey, tomato, […]

How to Make Unrefined Powdered Sugar

You may already know that it’s easy to make powdered sugar at home, using crystallized cane sugar. This trick works equally well with sucanat and coconut palm sugar!

5-Minute Grain-Free Nut Crust

Rich, buttery and lightly salted this 5-minute grain free crust is the perfect contrast to fruity fillings (such as this lovely paleo strawberry-rhubarb), bringing them to a whole new level. It would also be a fabulous base for a chocolate pie or any cream-based filling.

For pumpkin pie or this Sweet Potato Pie with Lemon […]

Watermelon-Coconut Electrolyte Drink

Fresh watermelon juice comes together with potassium-rich coconut water, a pinch of sea salt and (if you have it on hand) a hint of mint or lemon for a delightful drink to keep you cool during the summer months!

I’m talking about electrolytes today at The Nourishing Gourmet where am sharing another one of my […]

How To Make BBQ Sauce
