Red Velvet Cupcakes

Jules Shepard's Red Velvet Cupcakes

Red Velvet Chocolate Cupcakes

You’ll die for these Red Velvet Cupcakes but you won’t use Red Dye in the process.

These babies are gluten freed and healthified.  I reduced the Sugar and the guilt by using Erythritol and Green Stevia.  Your family doesn’t need to know  that you snuck Veggies in their dessert nor do they care about the benefits of BEETs:  has anti-cancer properties, supports your brain & gut health and reduces chronic inflammation.

Thanks to Jules Shepard for her GF Flour blend and this recipe.

Sweet and Sour Pork III

1000 folks tried Sweet and Sour Pork III on AllRecipes.com and I agree with their high rating.  There’s quite a few steps but it’s worth the effort.  To healthify it, I only use enough Oil in a PFOA-free pan to sear the Pork.   I add more colourful veggies and replace some of the Sugar with Erythritol and Green Stevia…no one was the wiser.

If you like umami, add a touch of Fish Sauce when seasoning the meat.  For more heat, add minced Jalapeno Pepper.

Serve over Chinese Rice Pilaf, garnish with toasted Sesame Seeds and Cilantro.
