Whether it’s sadness from a deep loss or just baked-on, caked-on gloom and doom, Hawthorn can help. I love to make an elixir of Hawthorn…

N’Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Raspberry Cream Cheese Danish. Really.

Gluten free? Dairy free? Paleo? Yup! These Raspberry Cream Cheese Danishes are exactly what you need. Because I wanted to stay as low-carb as possible, I chose to go with almond flour for this recipe, which makes a much denser danish than you could do if you were using tapioca or rice flour.

Today my Pharmacy students and I tried out a Thanksgiving experiment. Last week two students referenced a traditional Iraqi/Iranian treat, which is made with dates and almonds.
