Ropa Vieja with Garlic Cilantro Grain Free Tortillas {AIP/Paleo}

Since Otto’s Cassava Flour started delivery in the US, my daughter and I have been cooking up endless shredded meat dishes that will go with Fork & Bean’s Grain Free Tortilla Recipe which I have modified slightly to add Cilantro & Garlic to the dough (1 tsp Dried Cilantro, 2 tsp Minced Garlic)

These Shredded Beef Ropa Vieja with Garlic Cilantro Grain Free Tortillas (AIP) combines delicious meat with the amazing texture of this tortilla! So much so that it is such a hit we may just eat this twice a week right now plus its an awesome dish for a 6yr old who is loosing a lot of teeth !

Blueberry Muffins {Paleo}

Sometimes being asked to whip something up quickly can result in either a disaster or a masterpiece and you will be pleased to know that I consider these muffins to be close to a masterpiece LOL!

Our school PTA runs either Dad’s & Donuts or Mums & Muffins to encourage Mums to come to school and spend time with their child in a school setting.  I love the concept but I hate that its food orientated, I would love to be invited into the school at any time, and i don’t need a muffin or a donut to encourage me!

Anyway – Moms & Muffins meant that I had to whip up muffins – not cupcakes (because of course I had those already made in the freezer but muffins… thankfully I convinced my 6yr old that blueberry muffins were the best (because frankly I believe they are!)

Glazed Baked Donut

Dad’s and Donuts is a yearly school fundraiser, which causes my daughter some angst.

  1. She loved donuts before her diagnosis
  2. She wants to attend like all the other kids

So I devised a baked donut recipe that is dairy & grain free that enables her to go along and feel part of the crowd.  Note this recipe does use chocolate & eggs, so its not AIP Compliant unless you have been successfully able to reintroduce them.

This recipe uses Plantain Flour and Sweet Potato flour which really work well for me for baking.  Both Products are pure flour and can be purchased at Barry Farms Online Store

Note that while this recipe is Grain Free & Dairy free I can’t label as Paleo due to the sugar content!!!
