This recipe is for an individual serving of olive and herb grain-free FAUX-caccia (fake focaccia, get it? hee hee). I cooked it in the microwave so it took less than 5 minutes to make. This fake focaccia is my own variation of "Low Carb Bun For One" from Free Range Cookies.
Several days ago, Sunflower Farmers Market asked their Twitter followers to name their favorite no-bake homemade desserts. https://twitter.com/shopsunflower/status/208621839000403968 We don't eat a lot of traditional dessert in our house - we consider fruit to be dessert and we don't even eat that every day.

I went because I wanted to connect with other people who are interested in increasing awareness of and improving access to sustainably grown food. I was a little nervous that I wouldn't have anyone to talk to; I was afraid everyone there would … Continue reading 2011 Salt Lake Sustainability Summit – Reconnecting to Natural Genius
I haven't spent much time on posting anything lately because I've been spending my evenings reading / analyzing recipes and testing out possible dishes for Thanksgiving. It will be my first grain-free, dairy-free, soy-free, starch-free (SCD) Thanksgiving. Right now I'm obsessed with Elana's Pantry - so many great recipes. I can't cook fast enough!
