Our first thanksgiving recipe is now up on the blog! Tis' the season for sweet pastries and pie (even in bite size form)! My mom has always made THE BEST pie crust in history, and I think we have officially converted it to match our healthy Lyme lifestyle. This recipe is made with whole wheat pastry flour and palm shortening instead of white flour and Crisco to eliminate any harmful additives. It's also made with DELICIOUS organic berries that can be converted into any berry you like, and it's perfect for all of your holiday parties because they're so simple and bite-sized!

*You can top your pie cups with whipped cream or anything you like. I topped mine with lemon zest, and it added just the right flavor!
*Use organic ingredients when feasible.
*Store in refrigerator.
I've spent a large portion of my life listening to all the puns that can be made with my name!
The good news is that these babies were created simply because if I'm going to love food as much as I do, I might as well have a food that shares a name with me! These eclairs were created with love from Claire's Kitchen and use only whole, organic ingredients! They're also refined sugar free, which means that even someone with Lyme disease can eat them! So you get the delicious taste without the after affects of feeling sick! It's a win win for everyone in the kitchen today! :D
*Makes 16 small eclairs, or 8 larger eclairs.
Welcome to My Kitchen!
Food is one of the greatest forms of science, art, medicine, and sustenance all at the same time! It's what feeds our lives and pumps through our blood. It's what connects us and what gives us energy to fulfill our purpose. It is for that reason that I have a deep passion for discovering, cooking, and eating only the most nutrient dense foods. In my kitchen, we only use organic, whole ingredients that feed the body, as well as the mind and soul. My hope is to inspire healing through healthy AND delicious food that feeds not only our stomachs, but also our hunger for connection and quality of life.
