Homemade Eggless, Gluten-Free, Sugar Free, Vegan Oreos

Ever since I developed my food sensitivity to rapeseed, which is in canola oil and soy lecithin, Oreos, which have both canola oil and soy lecithin in them, has been one of the food items I can no longer eat. There are many different alternatives for Oreos such as Gluten-Free Oreos or Organic Oreos, but every alternative I have found still has soy lecithin in them, therefore, I still can’t eat them. I decided to look for a homemade version of Oreos that are still quite similar to Oreos, but slightly different in ingredients so I can enjoy them.

People love to eat and decorate gingerbread cookies during the winter season. Did you know you can make gingerbread cookies that are 100% Paleo? The Paleo diet is the healthiest way you can eat because it is the only nutritional approach that works with your genetics to help you stay lean, strong, and energetic.

Macaron Gifts

Since my first attempt at making French macarons, I’ve made them twice more – same recipe (from my trusty MacarOn Café recipe book), but I altered the appearance for special occasions.
 

Earlier this year, I made confetti macarons for my friend’s birthday gift and another friend’s graduation gift, which were coincidentally around the same time. As I was browsing Pinterest one day, I stumbled across beautiful confetti macarons from Style Sweet CA. I borrowed the decoration idea because what’s more festive than confetti? Especially for celebrations like graduations and birthdays. The only step in the macaron process was to put some sprinkles …

 

Food Television

This week, I’ve been staying at home everyday, sick with a cold. That meant no going out to eat, no baking, and lots of rest, hot tea, and chicken noodle soup. Since I was stuck at home and not at work, I was able to watch some of my favorite food TV shows that play during normal business hours. Here are my top 5 shows on The Food Network.
 

 
Of course, I must mention Sweet Genius since I am obsessed with desserts. In each episode, there are four American premier pastry chefs competing in three timed challenges for the grand prize of $10,000. …
