Grain Free Blueberry Cookies // Tried and TastyWhen I started out making these, I was actually attempting to make scones. In the end, they seemed like a cross between muffins and cookies. Ultimately I decided to go with cookies! Everyone loves cookies! The other day when I was attempting to make almond flour in my Blendtec, I accidentally made almond butter. Hence the post, How To Make: Almond Butter. These were the cookies I needed the almond flour for. I’m constantly trying my best to eliminate white refined flour from our house and it keeps on sneaking back in. If I replace my white flour recipes with grain-free or whole wheat taste recipes, then it should be an easier transition.

How To Make: Almond Butter // Tried and TastySo here’s the deal. Well actually, there’s two deals. Here’s the deal #1. Almonds and I have a weird relationship. I LOVE almond bits, slices, chunks, almond milk, and almond butter – but I struggle with whole almonds. I actually feel like I’m allergic to whole almonds (but not in any other form). Is that weird? I know it sounds crazy! I had a weird experience with a scratchy throat once after eating whole raw almonds and it felt like my esophagus was shrinking. After that, I stayed away from the almond variety for a while. Then slowly started incorporating them back in (not whole). I love almond milk (because I don’t so much love regular milk) and I recently discovered I love almond butter!

Not-So-Guilty Almond Joy Trifle // Tried and TastyI love a good trifle. I also love a good chocolate trifle (i.e. my Chocolate Mint Trifle and my Raspberry Brownie Trifle Recipe). The non-chocolate variety is great as well (i.e. my 5-Ingredient Pineapple Fluff Trifle). So when I was thinking of a great dessert for a large gathering or potluck, of course a layered dessert came to mind. Being in the full swing of summer we’re constantly running to and from BBQ’s, picnics, and get-togethers. The trifle dessert is my favorite dessert to take to feed a crowd. But with me watching what I eat, I wanted a not-so-guilty way to enjoy it!

Mediterranean Salad With A Creamy Feta Dressing // Tried and TastyI recently went camping with the hubs and didn’t have much time or groceries to have your typical ‘camping’ food for our overnighter. Instead, we stopped by our local health food store and picked up some of the pre-made salads and wraps. I absolutely fell head over heels in love with the Mediterranean salad that I chose. All of my favorite flavors tossed together in a beautiful salad complimented by a zesty dressing.  I was in heaven! One of my dreams is to be immersed in the Mediterranean culture. The food. The culture. The history. This salad brings a little of that closer to home (and within my budget).
