Ginger & Turmeric Peach Pie

I made this pie with the sole goal of using it to upgrade the photography in my archerfriendly vegan pie crust recipe. The pie turned out incredibly well, beyond expectation. It deserved its own post. I still upgraded my pie crust post with better photography (since the original photos for… read more

Ginger Up Your Baked Strawberries & Pears

In my house, this is dessert.  It is simple as simple, which is why it is free of almost every allergen, except for citrus.  Should I bore you with the spiel of everything it is “free” of?  It’s just fruit and ginger. That’s all.  Talk about a Garden of Eden… read more

Spinach, Banana, & Ginger Smoothie

Ever since I suggested that you add fresh ginger to your green smoothies, I couldn’t resist.  I’ve been adding it to mine, and wow, has it taken me for a tasty ride! I’m a sensitive one.  If I eat too much ginger, I get esophagitis.  Especially if that ginger is… read more

In light of the herb of the month, I have a treat for you!  Triple Ginger Coconut Milk Ice Cream.  Best dairy free ice cream I’ve ever had. In this homemade ice cream, ginger manifests its herbal self in 3 powerful ways:  dried, fresh, and crystallized.  This results in a… read more

ginger tea ball herb of the month

Ginger (Zingiber officinale)

Ginger root is tasty.  Especially when preserved in cane sugar and consumed in the form of crystallized ginger. Tastes like candy. I used to live in sugar snob land where any form of sugar was EVIL!  As a sugar snob, crystallized ginger would have been absolutely off limits.  Pfff.  Eat… read more

Beth’s Mini Gingerbread Men

If you eat normal, you may mistake these gluten-free gingerbread men as holiday dog biscuits, because they kind of look like those natural, homemade dog treats you see at the local farmer’s market.  But they’re not.  The canine biscuit look comes from the color of molasses and the texture of… read more

White Bean Pumpkin Chai Scones

One of my goals when I started therapy was to “stop junking”. I tend to get stuck on my phone around 9pm, after my girls have gone to bed for the night. I really only want to check on things, but it almost always turns into what I call “junking”…. read more

Yellow Pea Flour Blood Orange Pound Cake

This is my best version of an archerfriendly pound cake, without using any of the ingredients that make a pound cake a pound cake. Traditional pound cake contains a pound of flour, butter, eggs, and sugar. There is none of that in this cake. It is gluten free, egg free,… read more

Red Thai Turkey Burgers with Cilantro Lime Aioli in a Napa Cabbage Wrap

I was beyond frustrated at the clinic yesterday because my fax service wasn’t working. I spent four hours trying to fix the problem, including a 40 minute long phone call to tech support. The tech support guy was really nice. I didn’t have anything in me to be curt with him,… read more

Chocolate Beet Cupcakes with Chai Frosting

My mom liked to say that the Coors Light Drinker taught me how to drive. If you count, “Get in the left lane, turn your blinker on … now turn left!”, as a driving lesson on Route 61, then I guess he taught me how to drive… to the liquor… read more

Lentil Curry Soup with Broccoli

For Sunday dinners, we try to make a really big meal in hopes that it will last us several days through the work week ahead. Eating the same meal for three to four days in a row is how we survive the busy school week with two working parents while… read more

Sweet & Salty Chocolate Chai Granola Bars

Last Thursday, it was “one of those days”. The girls had been up too late the night before, and everything was triggering frantic crying episodes in both of them. The house was a wreck. I felt emotionally “off” due to some unexpected grief that had been triggered earlier that afternoon… read more
