Organic Pumpkin Pie D/F

Pumpkin pie signifies the official start to Autumn. I got a crazy craving for fall foods as soon as October started. The only dairy-free pies I will trust to have no butter in it is my own home-made recipe. This pumpkin pie has only 11 ingredients, all of which are organic. The flavor and texture

Zucchini ‘Meatballs’ DF/GF Vegan

Galumpki, pronounced Ga-WUMP-ki, are a fabulous delicacy often served at family celebrations and holidays. If you make too many, the leftovers will re-heat in the microwave the next day, tasting even better than the day you cooked them. Most families have a secret recipe they follow, and my family
