Choosing the Right #GlutenFree Tortillas


It’s getting so much easier to find gluten free products these days.

Organic Black Bean Quesadillas


Sometimes all I can get my daughter to eat is a quesadilla. Tortilla… and cheese. I tell her all the time she needs to eat the rainbow, not just yellow food, but that doesn’t actually get her to eat more. I’ve had to come up with many clever ways to sneak some other food groups into her glorious cheese tortillas. Only in the last year, have I had much luck with her not picking out what I sneak in. She’s now 7. With these black bean quesadillas, I finally found sometimes that gives her some nutrition, and she will actually eat them! They are super quick and easy to make, too. Continue reading

Use them for taco night, a wrap for lunch, or just a mind blowing, simple, amazing snack. These are made with coconut oil and hold a subtle flavor making them an almost buttery, mouth watering treat. They pack more health benefits too compared to those made with other less healthy oils. Continue reading

Secret Ingredient Biscuits from Scratch


I’ve tried so many biscuit recipes. Ones that claim to mimic recipes from famous restaurants, ones that are supposed to be easy and delicious, ones that are supposed to be the best ever in the whole entire world! I couldn’t find what I was looking for, though. I kept at it, and I altered a few things, then I finally created my own version of the many I had tried. I added a secret ingredient, and I found success. Everyone who tries these biscuits are in love. Even if they don’t typically like the secret ingredient. I’m sharing my secret with you now.
