Raw S’Mores (Grain Free, Vegan, Candida-Diet Friendly)

From what I can tell, S’mores are the quintessential “camp” food. What child hasn’t eaten a gooey S’mores bar? Well, dear readers, it’s True Confession time: I am that child who has never eaten a S’mores bar. (Does that make me S’less?)

Summer really is the perfect time to throw a party, isn’t it? The weather welcomes outdoor events, quick preparation, colorful foods to adorn backyard tabletops, and people are just generally. . . . happier (okay, so I’m talking about me. In summer, I am generally happier).

Green and Yellow Split Pea Salad

When you think of summer, what comes to mind? Along with a blessed relief from winter, the sun’s rays on my forearms, hair getting incrementally lighter between June and August, skin getting incrementally darker between June and August, reading the paper and sipping my morning matcha on the patio, The Girls […]
