eat. Drink. Shine.

Inspiration from our kitchen


Gluten-Free and Paleo-Friendly Recipes for the whole family


The relationship you have to food is similar to the relationship you have with yourself and how you connect to the world. Having made food our lives’ passion, we’re sharing our philosophy, healthy living tips, family-­friendly recipes, and stories about sisterhood in our debut cookbook EAT DRINK SHINE: Inspiration from Our Kitchen, Gluten-­Free and Paleo ­Friendly Recipes.

Nourish yourself from the inside out and enjoy the pleasure that comes with eating yummy, whole foods that taste good
— Jill Emich

After working in the restaurant industry for more than 20 years, we wanted Shine to not only be a restaurant, but rather a community dedicated to nourishing food, drink and events. So when we opened the doors of Shine Restaurant & Potion Bar, we made a commitment to serve our customers nutritionally­ inspired comfort foods that were 100% gluten-­free using ingredients close to the earth.


The Blissful Sisters Discuss Their New Book

It is really so much more than a cookbook. It is a book about the healing power of food and community.
— Jessica Emich

Wake up and shine with wholesome breakfasts to feed the body, brain, and spirit like Baked Eggs in Avocado Cups and Sweet Potato and Kale Hash. Eat, Sip, Shine with some of our most popular soups and broths from the hearty Chicken Bone Broth to our creamy Vegan Wild Mushroom Bisque.

The book’s main courses will satisfy a hungry group gathering around the table for such succulent suppers like the Seared Pork Chops with Braised Cabbage and Fennel, Dairy Free Fried Chicken, and Seafood Stew with Basil Pesto.

Vegetarian sides and mains are just as stellar as the meat and seafood entrees: Cauliflower Fried Rice, Dairy ­Free Mac & Cheese, and Baked Spaghetti Squash.

And our sweets and treats like Banana Chocolate Mousse, Decadent Grain ­Free Beet Brownies, and Good­ For­ You Jello are sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face!

Our love for wholesome food, feeding and bring the community together can be seen on each page. We hope these recipes bring you as much joy, laughter and health as they’ve brought to us.
