According to my son’s pediatrician, February is a popular month at her office– there are lots of people getting sick! I’ve been fortunate enough to avoid illness for the last 3 years, but after flying home for the holidays, my son and I both came down with colds.

With nut allergies becoming more prevalent, I’ve been looking to create a vegan and gluten-free cookie that is nut-free, as well. This turned out to be quite a challenge! First, I tried adapting my favorite Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies, using oat flour instead of almond meal, but the result didn’t hold together well. I realized that oat flour requires an egg-like…

Dairy-free Corn Chowder

I’m really excited about this corn chowder. Austin had asked me to make some “New England Clam Chowder” for a Super Bowl-themed Patriots post last week, but the truth is, I don’t love the idea of working with clams. Fresh ones sound intimidating, and canned ones sound… unappealing. So, I asked him if I could…
