Braised Beef Shanks

  Last week I picked up a bulk beef order from my farmer, Crown S. Ranch and within it were tons of packages of beef shanks.

Indonesian Beef Curry

Coconut-Raspberry “Cheesecake”

  Last week I posted this non-dairy “cheesecake” on my recipe blog, Little Fig. It happens to be autoimmune-protocol friendly (if you are eating sugar – this one is sweetened with honey!) and so I thought I would share it here as well. This is definitely not something I would include in my diet often…
