Best Dairy-free Parmesan Cheese

This is probably the best recipe I ever created. Back in 2012 I was allergic to cheese. Since I LOVE Italian food, I was HIGHLY MOTIVATED to recreate the flavor of Parmigiano Reggiano! This is coconut cheese with a ZING! Grate it, slice it, or cut into chunks. Instead of dairy, it uses coconut butter, lemon, nutritional yeast, and optional Vitamin C for a sharp, aged cheese flavor. BTW I lost my cheese allergy! I discovered I can tolerate dairy that's organic, grass-fed, and unpasteur...

Low-Carb Cauliflower Risotto alla Milanese

This recipe is for all my friends that love Italian food! The secret to traditional Risotto alla Milanese is the best arborio rice, aged Parmiggiano Reggiano, and saffron.

It's an easy low-carb dish that's much healthier and easier to digest than traditional risotto. ...

Strawberry Rhubarb Cream Tart

Today I was craving raw strawberries for mental clarity. These babies caught my eye, gorgeous and full of flavor! Then I saw the fresh rhubarb. That clinched it. Be sure to use organic strawberries, as they tend to absorb atrocious amounts of pesticides. Strawberries are one of the “Dirty Dozen” foods to always buy organic. I’m surprised many so-called healthy groceries still sell strawberries raised with pesticides. ...

Zoodles alla Carbonara, Paleo style

Everyone loves Spaghetti alla Carbonara! This easy 15-minute meal is high in protein, low in carbs, Paleo-adapted with zoodles, or zucchini noodles! We think of this as a traditional Italian dish, however it's actually a 1944 adaptation of US Army rations. Spaghetti alla Carbonara was invented by a smart Italian refugee woman during WWII. It seems American troops shared powdered eggs and bacon with starving coal diggers who had fled to the hills around Rome to escape the Germans. ...
