The last time I ate popcorn, I was 8 years old. I remember it clearly. My mom was out of town, so Dad was on “dinner duty.” I don’t remember what we had for dinner, but later that night we watched a movie, stayed up extra late, and in the process ate way too much popcorn. It was great father-daughter bonding time, but yikes on the food situation! I remember waking up the next day feeling absolutely miserable: bloated, puffy, tired, and cranky.
It wasn’t until 2 years later that I discovered I had a corn allergy.
Giving up popcorn didn’t interfere with my life too much, since we didn’t eat it often growing up. (That’s why it was a special treat that we totally overdid whenever Mom flew the coop!) But nevertheless, sometimes you just get a craving for what you can’t have, a fixation on the “forbidden fruit.”
When compared to real popcorn, I’ll be honest, this “Cheesy” Cauliflower Popcorn doesn’t really taste a thing like the real stuff. It’s better!

Spring holidays are just around the corner, and I’ve got the perfect recipe for all of your festive gatherings. These grain-free strawberry shortcakes are sure to be a winner with every berry lover.
With Easter quickly approaching, nothing would be more delightful than serving up these friendly and colorful shortcakes. Not too sweet, they’re just as appropriate for brunch as they are for an after-dinner treat. And as spring bursts into bloom with bridal and baby showers popping up on the calendar, it really is the perfect time to make shortcake!
For the past few months, I’ve been experimenting more and more with grain-free, Paleo-friendly recipes. I’ve found that baking without grains can actually be quite delicious and super healthy, too.
If you’re going to dip your toe into grain-free baking, I can just about guarantee that you’ll need some almond flour stocked in your kitchen. There are quite a few brands out there these days, many of which I’ve baked with in a variety of ways. I don’t have a particular favorite—most brands have worked equally well for my baked goods so far. But if you really want “the cream of the crop” when it comes to almond flour, I’d recommend Honeyville Farms, which is ground a bit more finely than other brands. You can also make your own almond flour at home in a snap. See a tutorial here.
