Fruitful Letters.

Makes a heck of a mess in the kitchen but my favorite right now (and of last year) is still the AIP Pear Caramel Pie, page 300 in The Auto Immune Paleo Cookbook .  Satisfying a sweet tooth with none of the forbidden foods within the recipe is not to be sniffed at!  I recently related …
