{Note from Jessica: Today’s post is shared by my sweet friend Renee, author of Raising Generation Nourished. We became friends several years ago and I am continually impressed with her desire to help change the world, starting with our newest generation. Real food has to be core of our health and should start in the womb. Considering this is the first time in history that our children are expected to die before us, something HAS to change. I’m honored to call her a friend. I hope you’ll stop by her site, Raising Generation Nourished, and say hello!}

This is a really fun time of year to enjoy favorite flavors of the holidays. There is something about the nostalgia of holiday baking, and my girls are getting at an age now that they remember things like baking gingerbread cookies from year to year – and that is just so fun!

I truly have a huge love for cranberries, and last month my husband picked up a huge bag of cranberries at Costco thinking he would get ahead on the holiday food shopping. While I was super excited about using them for fresh cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving and using them for a new cranberry orange granola, I wasn’t quite sure how to use up a whole Costco sized bag of them!

Grain Free Cranberry Apple Crisp

On a whim one Sunday, I thought to use some of the cranberries up with some apples that needed to be eaten and do a quick crisp. We have had a cinnamon apple crisp a couple times this fall as the apple harvest here has been really abundant. It is one of my favorite desserts…but oh! The cranberry addition took it to a whole different level!

Grain Free Cranberry Apple Crisp

Not only is the color the cranberries give naturally gorgeous, but those sweet apples with the tart cranberries is so amazing. I added a little teaspoon of almond extract and it really pulls out so much depth of flavor.

Learn How to Make Perfect Ice Cream (and Other Frozen Treats) at Home

Ice cream is the quintessential dessert (and, ahem, it would probably go pretty darn great with this recipe!). I mean, I can’t think of a single person that I’ve ever met who doesn’t like ice cream. While not everyone is as passionate about the cold, creamy, sweet concoction as I am, I am betting that if you’re reading this, you probably enjoy a frozen treat of some sort every now and then.

If so, then I have the PERFECT resource for you today.

I am crazy for ice cream, but I find that there are very few commercial ice creams that I can eat. I can’t do dairy, so that scratches a good 75% of them off the list. And the non-dairy options either taste funny, have too much sugar, or have weird gums and additives that my poor gut just doesn’t tolerate.

So, what’s a gal to do?

Master the art of making her own ice cream at home, that’s what!

And create I did and The Splendid Scoop and Other Frozen Treats eBook was born! This is one of my best-selling eBooks because I arm you with everything you need to make your own perfect ice cream (or other frozen treats) at home any time you want. 

And I do it all with real food ingredients, no refined sweeteners, not gums, not stabilizers. No junk here.

Oh, and I also have made the recipes allergen-friendly and even adaptable for stricter healing diets (like the AIP).

So, if you are ready to master the art of making your own ice cream at home, this is the perfect book for you. Don’t let another special occasion or hot day in the summer pass you by watching everyone else enjoying cold treats while you sit on the sideline due to your dietary restrictions.

No more!
