Links I Love 6.0

Been a little uninspired lately when it comes to new recipes… so I thought I’d share some inspiring links! First up. Almond flour… the good vs. the bad. You decide. “I don’t think almond flour is a terrible flour.  And I don’t think coconut is a better choice (not that I think you should avoid…

Cilantro Egg Salad Sandwich

I’m baaack! I felt like taking a little reprieve from posting after my 30-day blogging marathon.  I’ve got a great recipe for you today!

Flourless Chocolate Cookies

I have a disclaimer for this post. I really hesitate to use the term “paleo” next to it. These cookies are ridiculous.

Vegan Nut and Herb Lettuce Wraps

All things are swell here in San Clemente. It’s looking like we have some rain headed out way tomorrow which is just fine with me. I love the sun but it’s nice to get some variety and have the air and earth all cleaned up by shower or two. I’ve been advancing in my surfing…
