Paleo Lemon Bars (gluten-, grain-, dairy-, refined sugar-free)

Slide1

Slide2


I remember the time when A and I used to devour a whole pan of lemon bars in one evening. What I don’t remember is if those evenings were also packed with brownies and/or chocolate chip cookies! Anyhow, the lemon bars had a delicious buttery base/crust, and was topped with a heavenly lemon custard.

Due to my dietary choices, lemon bars have not been on my menu for over three years. It’s Continue reading

Gluten-Free Asparagus and Leek Quiche (Dairy-Free)

Quiche can be a little bit of a challenge when feeding someone who is gluten-free, dairy-free and meat-free… that’s when this recipe comes to the rescue.

The flavor and texture are unbelievable. However, I wasn’t sold on the cashew cream icing. Continue reading

My sister gifted me this awesome hob (stove-top) waffle iron for Christmas. I was excited because I could finally make and eat waffles without worrying about the gluten-ified electric waffle iron. I went online to hunt for a suitable paleo-friendly and dairy-free waffle recipe. This is pretty much it… these waffles are simple to make and are sweetened ripe bananas. They are soft and spongy, making them perfect to sop up lots of syrup (if you’re that way inclined).
