Paleo Cranberry Cheesecake RECIPE
Instructions
Crust
  1. For the crust, you are going to use a food processor and place all CRUST ingredients in the food processor and blend them on high until all ingredients are incorporated. This will be thick and it needs to be spread out evenly on a parchment paper lined 9" springform pan.
Filling
  1. Place all of the filling ingredients (except for the one cup of sauce, reserve that for a bit later) into the food processor. Blend up these filling ingredients until smooth. You may need to stop the food processor and stir the ingredients with a soft spatula.
  2. Once the filling is smooth, place the filling into a medium sized bowl. Stir in one cup of fresh paleo cranberry sauce.
  3. Smooth the filling out evenly on the crust. I use a soft spatula to smooth out the filling.
  4. Refrigerate the filling and crust for 6 hours.
Topping
  1. Remove the cheesecake from the refrigerator and place the cranberry sauce and the pecans on top with whatever design you would like. I did a bullseye design with my sauce and my nuts.
  2. Slice, serve, and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

Please keep refrigerated to maintain freshness.

Cinnamon, Raisin, & Flax Gluten-Free French Toast With Bob's Red Mill and Chef Shamy

Bob’s Red Mill Bread Mix REVIEW – Cinnamon, Raisin, & Flax Gluten-Free French Toast With Chef Shamy

Freshly baked bread is amazeballs! I wasn't sure what to have for dinner and then I got that brinner (breakfast for dinner) craving. I also had a bag of Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Bread Mix in my pantry. I will tell you this too, I am always looking for a reason to put my apron on and get busy in the kitchen afternoon. So my Tuesday was spent working on a loaf of cinnamon, raisin, and ground flaxseed bread. This bread was simple to make and actually fun. I made the bread with the intention of using it for French Toast. I always enjoy making my own bread for French Toast. It is a rewarding feeling making an entire meal from scratch. I think the use of Chef Shamy's amazing butter really helped make this bread extra special.

Pamela’s Oatmeal Cookie REVIEW – Gluten-Free Baking Mix – From Ordinary To Extraordinary

Last night I made a wonderful healthy dinner. We had chicken marinated in Primal Kitchen Honey Mustard and some roasted broccoli. I really wanted a dessert though and then I remembered that I had a bag of Pamela's Oatmeal Cookie & Bar Mix stored away in the pantry. I am a big fan of Pamela's line of gluten-free products and I have tried several and have been quite satisfied. It was a first for me, though, making her oatmeal cookies. I doctored up the cookie mix to take it from ordinary to extraordinary. No shame in using a mix to create your baked goodies! This mix was outstanding and the cookies are disappearing quick!

RECIPE -Cinnamon Churro SmashMallow Stuffed Plantain

You all know me! Trying out new foods all the time. This time around I had the chance to try out a plantain for the first time, AKA the "ugly bananas"! I ran into Kroger with my daughter to pick up some ingredients for some homemade popsicles that I will be creating this week. We were checking out the exotic fruits and a big plantain made its way into my shopping basket. I only purchased one. I had no clue what I was going to do with it but I wanted to bring it home anyway.

I got home and did a bit of research on plantains. You do not want to eat these things raw. I did discover that these are best prepared cooked because if you bite into a raw one you are going to experience a bitter taste. You will not get sick eating a raw one but you will likely regret the taste in your mouth!
