Get excited, the next installment in Brooke and Maxxs Culinary Crafts. This is, hands down, the best salad I have ever eaten. Yes, ever. Incredible. Be careful, after trying it once, you’ll be hooked. Speaking of which, a grocery store run will be made in the next few days so I can snag the ingredients myself and make it yet again. While it may sound plain, being a salad and all, this one is anything but. Packed with flavor (garlic, a bit of oil, nuttiness, man oh man), this recipe is sure to become a fast favorite.
Onto the rest of the entry, as told by Maxx:

Who doesn’t love donuts? I cant think of many people. That’s because donuts are the bomb. A quintessential American treat. If made right, they are fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth, lightly sweet, and ideally topped with a swirling of frosting. The perfect amount for a treat sized snack. Not so much that you feel ill after consuming one, just enough to feel satisfied and oh so happy.
Behold: my donuts are made with zero grains/gluten, they have no refined sugar, and are dairy free (save for two eggs, but if you like, these can be substituted with egg beaters- found in the grocery store. An egg substitute).
These babies have a unique, lovely flavor to boot. Orange zest combined with a plethora of spices (a touch of cinnamon, a lot of ground cloves, and a tad of ginger). The end result is awesome. And, I threw the dough together in just ten minutes. So while the ingredients may sound slightly complex to some who haven’t tried working with nut flours just yet (and no, the donuts do not taste like nuts), its super easy. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Another one of Brooke and Maxxs Culinary Crafts in the works resulted in this colorful beauty (which is not only lovely to look at, but tasty to boot). In light of all the routine sweet treats the two of us love consuming in abundance (see our Mouthwatering Matcha Tiramisu, and our recipe for the Best Chocolate Cake You’ve Never Had), we decided to make something on the healthier side for our entrée to showcase. This one is easy to make, dairy free, sugar free, and despite not being raw, ultra healthy, vegan, and packed with good-for-your-body ingredients.

Here’s a healthy and fun one for you to throw together. The best part? You can make it look lovely and rather fancy, when actually its a cinch to make. For the cookie crumble inside, I used my healthy gingerbread recipe (gluten/grain free, dairy free and very low in sugar). For the pudding, I used sugar free/fat free vanilla pudding within which I sprinkled a bit of cinnamon and added a tablespoon of maple syrup.

Despite Christmas being over, I still think its “that time” of year. Meaning, for gingerbread. To me, this treat isn’t relegated merely to Christmas but is an aptly enjoyed whole winter treat 😀 However, traditional gingerbread is loaded with wheat, dairy and sugar. I found and adapted this healthier but just as delectable version for your tasting pleasure. Its super easy to whip together, its grain/gluten free, dairy free and quite low in sugar. How bout that. And its tastes sweet, lightly spiced and delish, just like the real deal.
Enough raving about it. Here’s how to make it.
