Cake Project: High-Fat Honey Almond Flour Cake Recipe

My close friend Aya Katz, is having some ladies over for a group meeting, so it’s her turn to serve some goodies. Her diet is a bit specific, so since she would prefer not to alter her current dietary foods, we thought why not make a specialty cake. There must be a perfect recipe online for a cake that is high in fats and uses only animal based products and byproducts, and which does not require egg whites (with a bit of a treat using almond flour because of it’s high fat content). Easy peasy, right? Um, no, we were a bit wrong.

Apricot Glazed Pork Roast

Apricot glazed pork roast is what to serve. This is truly the best, and most memorable recipe for roasted pork tenderloin. While apricot glaze is fairly easy to make, it is one of those recipes that can be honed to one's own tastes and textures and therefor is, to me, a creative outlet and relaxing experience for those going into the process with no fear.

Julia's Rustic Cinnamon Apple Pie Recipe

Around this time of year my mom used to love making apple pies, and that is one tradition I have continued as an adult.  There is just something very homey about the smell of a cinnamon-infused apple pie baking on a crisp autumn day, which conjures up memories of the mountains and the leaves changing colors.

Perfect for Fall Broiled Organic Grass Fed Beef Burgers

Once the weather turns, and the evenings begin to turn crisp, our bodies tend to crave and need just a bit more in the way of heartiness than a regular burger and fries can offer us.​  Organic grass fed beef burgers is the best way to go during the colder seasons for its hearty density, the fact that it is much more filling, and because its fat is of healthier quality (especially when rack broiled).
