Creamed Spinach {Vegan/Paleo}


I learned something new on this St. Patrick's day from a reader. Apparently it is customary to wish someone EITHER a Happy St. Patrick's Day OR Happy St. Paddy's Day. But did you know Happy St. Patty's Day is a no go?! Now my maiden name is Bailey so you'd think I would have heard that somewhere along the way but it turns out I am much better at wearing green than I am at knowing the … [Read More...]


Instant Pot Lemon Garlic Chicken

I am sure as some point I will not have THIS much fun with my Instant Pot, but I have to be honest…it really is pretty great. I’ve had more days lately where I run out of time and all of the sudden it’s dinner time and I am without a plan. When I was…

Blood Orange Tart {Grain/Egg/Nut/Dairy Free}

I must admit, I am over the editing process. I am grateful for it, but I am over it. Everyday as I count down how many days I have left before I send back my manuscript for Down South Paleo, I “look” for other projects to take on. Snow day crafts…check! Sort for a Goodwill…

Yet another snow day. I have to be honest. I love the idea of snow days.  Nowhere we HAVE to be, my littles and I all snuggled safely inside. Homemade dairy free hot chocolate. Quality time. Bonding. And then there’s the reality. My husband has to stay on the Air Force Base to oversee the…

I shoveled snow today and didn’t have a heart attack.  Small victories are big ones sometimes. Like a Texan surviving single digits. It’s exciting and depressing all at the same time. Know what else happened today? Unicorn vomit. That’s my nice way of saying, “My 4 year old dumped out millions of sequins onto the…

Paleo Cheese {Dairy Free}

My obsession with cheese is not really a secret. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I love the stuff, in a very unhealthy addicted sort of way. And I had to give it up. If you haven’t read about my break up with dairy, you can do that HERE. But if…

Valentine Gummies

Homemade Valentine’s Day GUMMIES

What I love about homemade gummies is the possibilities are absolutely endless. If there are flavors you absolutely love, add them in, there is no flavor that is illegal. Well, that I know of… I typically like to sneak in some vitamins and immune supportive stuff like in my FLU SEASON GUMMIES which makes me…

Paleo Onion Ring “BUNS”

Oh man, you know sometimes I get the craziest ideas. This morning was nuts. I took my son to the pediatrician after getting all 3 kids out the door in 15 minutes. We had to hit the walk in hours for his very dramatic sore throat so that they wouldn’t be too late to school….

Bacon + Sweet Potato Waffle

This recipe literally happened because I had a sweet potato in the kitchen window, a pack of pastured bacon in the fridge, and a spark of an idea from my newsfeed. I had been seeing a few waffles as I scrolled through FB, where I spend far too much time, and the waffles were talking…
