Summer Tomato Sauce

This sauce is a bit different with the hint of clove, the sweetness of the honey, and the flavor of the tiny tomatoes. It pairs really well with my recipe for Pizza Crust - which is how I ended up creating an actual recipe for it. Feel free to adjust as you see fit and share your… Continue reading Summer Tomato Sauce

I've combed through some recipes out there to come up with my own SCD legal recipe that also reduces fat (no mayo here). I am currently trying to increase… Continue reading Crab Cakes (Low-Fat)
