PALEO FRIED SARDINES

Paleo Fried Sardines

There's really not much to say about this recipe but here goes... I needed dinner. I wanted it to be super fast. My chicken was stinky despite an expiration date that indicated it should be good. So I needed a Plan B. I've been loving peeling open a can of sardines for a salad at lunch, but I sort of wanted something more exciting then cold fish. Now let's chat about sardines. At least half of … [Read More...]

I’ve been watching the days tick by until I could get my hands on PALEO TAKEOUT, the new book from my friend Russ, aka The Domestic Man.

Baked Cod with Crispy Bacon + Onions

Baked Wild Cod + Crispy Bacon Onion Topping

The A/C has been fixed which can only mean one thing! Ok actually it means many things like my house isn’t 90 degrees INSIDE anymore, my skin isn’t sticky, and the coconut oil is less runny. It ALSO means I am cooking again! I tried using a toaster oven a few times during the heat wave…

SHRIMPEAS {Shrimp + Peas}

You know how some people get a hang nail and have to air all their dirty laundry about how they got the hang nail, how big the hang nail is, and what they named their hang nail? It’s nauseating isn’t it? So I typically try not to be an over-sharer, because really nobody wants to…

Maple Marshmallows – Sweet Paleo

I must say that this is the most delayed review I’ve ever written and it pains me to admit this. You see when I received Sweet Paleo in the mail a few months ago I was captivated. The photos and recipes completely sucked me in and I had so much to say about it to…

The other day at the market I passed by the most voluptuous thighs. I imagined sinking my teeth right in and motorboating all that juicy meat. People! Snap out of it, I’m talking chicken thighs here.

Tips for Transitioning Kids to Paleo

When I was first diagnosed with Hashimoto’s in 2008, my son was 17 months old and my daughter was 5 months. My 3rd baby had not yet been born. At the time I REALLY wanted to avoid going on meds for life (in 2009 I ended up on natural desiccated thyroid) and so I researched…

Un-Fried Ice Cream

Paleo UN-FRIED ICE CREAM

I’ll be honest here. I tried to fry this ice cream. Like real deal fried ice cream. I like to think that I can figure out ways to make a lot of things work in the kitchen, but this flopped. It just didn’t work for me at all and I refuse to post recipes that…

PlanetBox Review

My children have carried the same lunch boxes and backpacks for years. Literally years. My eldest two are 7 and 8 years old and beg me every fall for a new backpack and lunchbox set. Honestly I can’t stand being wasteful and so for years I’ve told them no. Imagine their delight when our brand new…
