Buckwheat Crepe Cake with Chocolate Avocado Filling and Hazelnut “Cream”

Buckwheat Crepe Cake - Gluten Free Cake

{Please welcome back Naomi Huzovikova, from Almost Bananas. Today, she brings you a fabulous gluten-free cake recipe, a Buckwheat Crepe Cake.  Loaded with nutrition like avocado–this looks amazing!  One of the problems with making gluten-free cake is that you need to add a decent amount of white starch to get the “lift” of traditional white flour cakes.  With this crepe cake, that problem is solved.  This crepe cake is whole grain and lovely.}

Crepe cakes, in my opinion, are an excuse to eat more icing (make that “frosting,” for my American friends).

Crepes layered with filling make for a moist and rich treat.

Dear Summer,

Hurry up and get here!  You’ve been gone for too long.  I feel like I should file a missing seasons report.  I miss your sunny face and warmth.  I would love to spend an afternoon outside.  I would go for a walk, run or even sit on the elusive ‘green grass’.

Secret Ingredient Mint Fudge – vegan and sugar free

Mint Fudge Recipe - Vegan and Sugar Free with Natural Colors. Great for St. Patrick's Day

Looking for a fun whole-foodie recipe for Saint Patrick’s Day sans the green food coloring?  This all-natural dairy-free fudge recipe is just what the doctor (or nutritionist) ordered.

It’s fun to color foods for special occasions, but on a whole foods diet, regular food colorings just do not make the grade.

It’s always hard for me to take my kids to the grocery store and see them oogle the multi-colored “foods” and feel like I’d love to make them something fun like that, but I just don’t want all those mystery chemicals going into their bodies.

Well, Sandi has a yummi solution for us today.}

Ahhh. It is time to air one of my pet peeves.

I love making Chocolate Chip Cookies.  But…

How many of you have family members who eat a bag of gluten free chips, pretzels, nuts, candy, or even steal some of your secret stash of baking chips….only leaving a few bites left in the package?

You know what they do next…They seal the bag back up and stuff it in the back of the pantry in order to hide the evidence.

I’m taking a bit of a break from my Crockpot, Casserole and Cook Ahead series on my blog to bring you some Valentine’s Day treats that will help you get through this so-not-candida-friendly holiday.

First up is a revamped version of one of my favorite and most-memorable childhood treats that I will be sharing here on Whole New Mom. They were actually one of my Dad’s specialties. Yes, he cooks, quite well actually, and he is pretty creative to boot. He actually used to make these at Christmas and they didn’t last much past that, as we would devour them.

They are chocolate oat and coconut macaroons and they are SO good.

Healthy Super Bowl Recipes

Healthy Superbowl Recipes

I am typically not such a big football fan, but we love getting together with friends and hope to do it again this year.

One of the biggest problems with gatherings of this sort, however, is that typically they’re loaded with GMO corn chips, dips made with fake cheese, and sugar-filled desserts.

In the interest of helping my family and yours have some better options, I’ve pulled together this list of Healthy Superbowl Recipes that are Super-Tempting too!
