  • Hello, I will be receiving your book this afternoon. I cant wait to look through it! My daughter has a peanut allergy so I wont be using any almond flour for the recipes. I was wondering what I can use to substitute it. Thanks!

  • HI Lexi
    This recipe used to say that you could serve it over arugula with I believe rice vinegar and something else. Can you tell me what it was again.
