Paleo Food Friday #14

It's difficult to get posts done on a Friday! This past Friday, I woke up early to get in some cardio on the stationary bike before work.  After work, my co-workers and I went to Onion Creek to relax after another successful week. By the time I get home and eat dinner, there's no time for a blog post (and almost no one is looking for blogs to read on a Friday night). So here we are...on a Sunday...reading my weekly Paleo Food Friday post!...more

Amazing Paleo Raspberry Brownies

Gluten, Dairy, Soy, Egg, Grain and Sugar Free BrownieI finally came up with a gluten, dairy, soy, egg, grain and sugar free brownie recipe that actually tastes fantastic! Sound crazy? It is crazy! Crazy good!!! All three of my kids and my husband love these! They’re sweetened with fruit and stevia instead of honey, syrup or sugar, so they suit all of our needs. I hope your family will love them as well!...more


There was a point in my life when I didn't like beef jerky. I was clearly insane. I just didn't like the way they smelled, so I decided I won't like them. I honestly thought they smelled like dog food, which isn't a too weird of a thought since many dog treats are made from dried meats.

Baked Crispy Cajun Spiced Chicken Thighs

It was both a grievous and wonderful moment when I first made baked chicken thighs a couple of years ago. Up to that point I had squandered many years avoiding any meat from a chicken other than the white meat. There were several reasons for that....more

Paleo Pumpkin Spice Waffles

This morning I woke up to no alarm – it was amazing. My big fluffy blankets were so comfortable especially now that it’s cold out. I had nothing I had to wake up early for which is rare so I decided to soak it all in and make the most of this beautiful day! What better way to love the morning even more than making paleo pumpkin spice waffles! I just got a new waffle maker I was dying to break in....more

Oeuf en Cocotte

I was shopping the other day, mind you for nothing having to do with food, and as soon as we walked in to the store I was immediately drawn to the kitchen section, as usual. I can’t help it. I love the beauty of different dishes and collecting them so much so I feel like I need an extra kitchen just to hold all of my appliances and dishes! When I walked by these ramekins I was so excited to go home and make an egg bake in them....more
