What The Heck is Bulletproof Coffee?

I was listening to a podcast this morning from the guys over at Fizzle.com and they were going on and on about Bulletproof or ‘buttered’ coffee in their intro. I’ve heard of bulletproof coffee a lot lately, especially with the boom of the ‘fat movement’ […]

More veggies! We’re on a roll with new veggie side dishes and this Roasted Veggie Medley is a great way to switch it up! I don’t know about you, but every now and then I need a break from my standard crispy bacon brussels sprouts. […]

Let’s Talk Tea

Let’s Talk Tea

I love tea!

No more diet soda for me, but I’ve been hearing all kinds of great things about all kinds of great teas. In my attempt to kick all artificial sweeteners out of my life, or at the very least, aspartame and sugar alcohols. I’ve had to explore other options in the beverage department. So I’m embracing the world of tea!

Now, I live in Arizona where it’s usually a bit too hot to be drinking tea. At least hot tea, so I thought I would experiment with iced tea. If you can drink herbal tea while it’s hot, why not drink it over ice?

It’s my new favorite beverage and it helps me get my water intake up each day. There are also other amazing health benefits to tea. The stuff is loaded with anti-oxidants and other nutrients. Some varieties even have caffeine for you caffeine addicts! It also pairs exceptionally well with my Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Brownies recipe!

Well, with my recent food allergy issues, I also had to find a way to modify the recipe to be dairy-free.

Famous Dave’s Salmon Spread Recipe

Famous Dave’s Salmon Spread Recipe

We love BBQ at our house and prior to my gluten allergy diagnosis we used to hang out at Famous Dave’s BBQ. I can’t eat there any longer as they use wheat in their sauces and every dish seems to be contaminated. I can’t even […]
