As most of you probably know by now, the only fats you should be cooking with are saturated fats. Unsaturated liquid fats (vegetable oils and yes, this includes olive oil) are too fragile to cook with. DO NOT COOK WITH VEGETABLE OILS!! OK, now that my public service announcement is made, as a […]

Meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Um, um, um. What a warm comfort food for a cold blustery day. This Paleo version is Grain-free and Dairy-free (if you opt to not use parmesan cheese) and is always a crowd pleaser. For the side of mashed potatoes, see my mashed Cauliflower recipe. ¬†This recipe makes a big loaf […]
Nothing says BBQ like cole slaw. I love cole slaw. The problem is the store bought stuff is made with all sorts of crap I don’t want put into my body. Namely soybean oil and high fructose corn syrup. This is my go-to, super easy recipe that wins rave review every time. The […]
So I have this small love affair with Hail Merry’s Raw Vegan Tarts and Raw Coconut Macaroons. My absolute favorite tart flavor is the lemon.¬† YUM YUM YUM!! The only problem with this relationship is that each sweet, rich, tart little temptress¬† is $5. And they are not big. I have to force myself to […]
Alright I am not the worlds best photographer, sorry. This photo does not do how yummy this dish is any justice. What’s even better than the fact that is it super yummy is that is it sooooo easy!! Here ya go!

The buttery smoothness of the scallop, dusted in the savory blackening seasoning and enrobed in that salty porky goodness……what can possibly be bad about that? NUTTIN’ […]
Courtesy of thefoodieandthefamily.com. ¬†I made these for “The Morning After” my daughters sleep over. I find these little girls aren’t all that hungry in the morning because they down tons of junk the night before. Figured these would be perfect. They came out really yummy! Very lemony, just sweet enough and nice and moist! […]
Yesterday was sleep over day. How do you get 12 ¬†year old girls to eat Paleo friendly snacks? Make them irresistible! ¬†I had the homemade almond butter cups that I made the day before. Sweet potato chips and I needed one more. The diner near my house has chocolate covered bacon on the menu […]
I was feeling naughty today. Nothing tastes naughtier to me than Reese’s Peanut Butter cups. Ahhh……my fond childhood memories of my favorite candy. When feeling the emotional teenage angst, nothing soothed me better than a good old Reese’s cup. ( To be honest, nothing made me feel guiltier afterwords but that is for a […]
