When in doubt, keep it simple! Following this one little suggestion has helped me tremendously in the kitchen and John used this simplistic approach over the weekend to whip up a delicious dip. We picked up a box of strawberries from the farmers market this weekend and the yummy berries were the vessel of inspiration for my husband’s simple yet fabulous creation.
There are endless possibilities when making paleo foods and the truth is, I enjoy how our food tastes now better than I ever did during our pre-paleo days. Nothing is better than fresh veggies soaking up delicious spices and tender bites of meat. Well; nothing food related that is… Today’s lunch was pretty much mouth watering from beginning to end and I hope you all enjoy this meal as much as we did! [Read more...]
Yesterday being Valentines Day was if anything a great excuse to make dessert! Inspired by Andy Deas‘ coconut milk apple pudding, we decided to make a chocolate version. It was so sinfully easy that I can hardly call it a recipe but if you are looking for a special occasion dessert that is still somewhat paleo (minus the sugar in the chocolate of course) and tastes like you slaved away for hours; I highly recommend our Chocolate Custard! To make this treat 100% paleo, stick to Andy’s version for a yummy anytime snack! [Read more...]

My family all pitched in yesterday and we created an amazing holiday feast. We ate a lot, laughed a lot, and stayed up way too late on a school night; but it was well worth it. We even managed to throw together a cooking demo for my Everyday Paleo Pumpkin Pie which we all had way too much fun filming, probably because of how blurry eyed and tired we were at that point! As far as the meal was concerned, I personally am proud of how the stuffing turned out, and I am now forever in love with Prosciutto Wrapped Pears… Jaden’s favorite was the Broccoli Casserole, and Rowan ate a pound of turkey before it even made it to his plate!

I’m tired as I type which reminds me to remind you that getting adequate sleep is more important than anything you might accomplish by staying up too late working on what “must” get done. If we deprive ourselves of precious recovery time, life simply becomes less enjoyable as we continue to burn out emotionally and physically. [Read more...]
