I made both of these delicious, easy recipes recently for a baby shower that I threw for a great friend of mine in RPM class (cycle). Both are paleo recipes and therefore gluten and dairy free. And they were a HIT! I served them with some Starbucks coffee with coconut creamer, and Trader Joe's Berry Lemonade with fresh raspberries. I think either, or both, of these items are great ideas to take to pot-luck brunch, or to have when hosting a brunch. Enjoy!!
