Have you tried making coconut yogurt but haven’t had much luck? I get questions from a large number of people about the secrets to making a consistently good coconut yogurt that is tangy and thick and that doesn’t separate. My method is EASY and I get a perfect batch every time. You don’t need any fancy equipment and you don’t even need to have probiotic capsules on hand. This method uses leftover coconut yogurt which you […]

These are so much more than a muffin and they really do taste as good as they look. Very moist, and surprisingly delicate for a polenta cake.

I have been playing around with a gluten-free crepe recipe for the past few weeks. And this is what I have finally come up with. I prefer to soak and ferment grains and grain-based foods wherever possible. It is a process that makes digestion a whole lot more fun for this dodgy tummy of mine. Soaking and fermenting grains is a traditional practice that is done throughout many different cultures around the world.  This process not […]
