14 Fabulous Birthdays, Paleo & Gluten-free!

By Jane Barthelemy. When people invite me to birthday parties, I always ask to bring the cake. Oh yes, I love to cook, but I also LOVE TO EAT. Most cakes are simply not safe to eat - they contain sugars, processed ingredients, and flours that make people sick. Commercial or cake-mix cakes may look beautiful, but they have no life force or nutrition in them. ...

Chocolate Chestnut Brownies

Today I NEED a GOOOOEY brownie with rich chestnut flavor. Just give it to me Paleo, free of gluten, grain, dairy, and sugar, and I’ll be your friend forever! Chestnuts aren’t even in season. Europeans, especially Italians, know about chestnuts, but they're still uncommon in the US. Their soft pulp grinds into a smooth flavorful pate, and the flavor tastes awesome with chocolate. Although chestnuts are technically tree-nuts, chestnut allergies are extremely rare. ...

Cauliflower Risotto with English Peas

Today I discovered fresh organic English peas in the market! When I lived in Italy, fresh peas in the pod were a sign of spring. Everyone rushes home to make this risotto, called “Risi e Bisi” in Venetian dialect, or “Rice with Peas”. However you won’t find this particular risotto in Italy! ...

Avoiding GMO’s? Here’s a Guide.

By Jane Barthelemy. Our health movement is now mainstream! So what is step #1 for your health? Well, I'd say taking care of the food you eat is pretty high. With so many processed ingredients, one of the easiest things to slip through the cracks is GMO's! You're thinking of a chicken salad for lunch? Think again – the chicken will be GMO-fed, and the dressing has GMO canola or soy oil. How about a beef burrito? Nope, the beef is from a CAFO with antibiotics, GMO-feed, and the tortilla is raised with Glyphosate. Okay, so you choose a shrimp wrap. But uh oh! ...

Easy Gluten-Free Apple “Torta di Mele”

My favorite Italian dessert is also the easiest. This is called torta di mele morbida (soft apple tart), Paleo-adapted from my amazing friend Giorgia Pistellato in Venice. Not a fancy dessert - it's is an everyday sweet with apples and cinnamon that always pleases (and reminds me of my former opera career in Italy.) This Apple Torta is a perfect choice for beginning bakers and children, simply because it NEVER FAILS! A luscious last-minute recipe like this can be a useful stand-by in your kitchen, since it uses common ingredients that you probably have on hand. ...
