Grain-Free Cheese Crackers Recipe

Grain-Free Cheese Crackers Recipe #glutenfree #recipe -

One day while I was making homemade soup, I decided to put a cheese crisp in it. My boys instantly loved it and decided to call these Cheese “Crackers”.

Homemade Herb-Infused Olive Oil with Essential Oils #DIY #essentialoils -

I absolutely love my extra-virgin olive oil. I drizzle it on all my salads (and I make a delicious Caprese salad), and I’ll top off my cooked salmon or chicken with just a bit of olive oil right before serving it to my family. And while I love olive oil, I admit that herb-infused olive […]

Paleo Shrimp and Grits Recipe - Cajun Style #paleo #grainfree #glutenfree #recipe -

Many of you don’t know this, but I was born in Georgia and raised in a suburb in Augusta until I was about 7 years old. I don’t remember much about growing up there, except for one thing: grits. I used to eat grits with cheese all day long. It was one of my favorite foods – my Southern […]

Cauliflower Rice Recipe

Cauliflower Rice Recipe #paleo #grainfree #glutenfree #recipe -

Are you trying to go grain free or Paleo, but miss eating rice? I completely know how you feel. As an Asian-American, rice was basically one of the four basic food groups in my diet growing up. At least 1-2 meals a day included a small bowl of white rice. And boy, did I love my rice. I’d […]

I came up with this recipe while testing for homemade cereal options for my kids beyond gluten-free granola. The end-result was perfection. The gluten-free oats were a perfect alternative to wheat and nuts (many gluten-free graham cracker recipes are made with nut flour, which I found to be too strong in flavor). These gluten-free graham […]
