Bacon Jalapeno Cornbread by Our Paleo Life

We are full-blown into football season, and football = food, amiright? So guess what I have for your today? A fantastic collaboration between myself, Stacy & Matt from Paleo Parents, and Nicole from Merit + Fork. Stacy and Nicole are lucky enough to live near each other and get together often to enjoy food and […]

Cherry Almond Crisp by Merit + Fork

CHERRIES!!! My absolute favorite fruit since as far back as I can remember. My dad was a cherry fanatic, so, in turn, my brother & I have always loved all things cherry. I could eat fresh cherries all day, but, since the window of opportunity for fresh cherries is so small, I always stock up on frozen ones. Like… at least 8-10 bags are in my freezer at any given time.

Brewed Butter Chocolate {A Primal Coffee Alternative} by Our Paleo Life

For personal reasons, we don’t drink coffee, though we do enjoy the occasional mug of herbal tea (mmm, peppermint is our favorite). I kept hearing about butter coffee, but since coffee’s not my thing, I never tried it, even though I love me some butter. I’m also not wild about large amounts of caffeine, so when I heard about brewing chocolate, which is naturally low in caffeine, I perked up a bit {see what I did there?}.

White Fish with Peach Salsa Sauce

Ever have one of those days? You know the one where even opening your eyes in the morning is a struggle?

You get soap in your eyes, and forget to shave the other leg? Traffic on the way to work is especially brutal and you hit every stop light. You forget your lunch at home, and the internet is down at work. Everything is a battle and a crisis. One of those days that you wish you could just stay in bed? Or hide under your desk and eat delicious paleo treats (cookies or brownies).

White Chocolate Almond Butter | Our Paleo Life

Sometimes, a thought pops into my head and I must make it happen immediately. However, if I don’t have the ingredients to make that certain inspired recipe come to life, it puts me in a funk. Naturally, the only solution is to send the husband to the store to find those ingredients for me. Case […]

Maple-Sage Pork Loin by Merit + Fork for Our Paleo Life

Am I alive? I might be… I might also be dead and this could be heaven. Because… pork. PORK. Pork all de time. Not just plain old pork, either… maple-sage glazed pork. Only in the last 6 months have I realized how much I love this lean, swiney loin, mostly because of how EASY it […]

Perfect Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies by Merit + Fork for Our Paleo Life

Perfect Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies… where do I even begin?! Any paleo foodie, whether you’ve been of the paleo persuasion for a few months or several years, has sought out some sort of chocolate chip cookie recipe. Like most people, you’ve probably tried a handful of paleo cookie recipes yourself… or maybe you haven’t! (I simply can’t imagine that scenario. A cookie-less life is no life in my eyes.) Myself? I’ve tried at least 100 paleo cookie variations.

Beefy Ratatouille | Our Paleo Life

I have no idea where this summer is going. Things started off so smooth and fun, then our camper broke (I know!), we got a large project for work that stresses me out every now and then, family visited, my kitchen has been in a perpetual state of yuck, and I’ve been working on a […]

MangoBerry Popsicle | Our Paleo Life

My kids often remind me when I’m slacking on anything that affects them. Like the 3,000 times a day that they are literally starving and may wilt away to nothing. Or the time I promised them I would maybe possibly think about taking them to the toy store. Or that time they asked for a […]

Braised Baby Back Ribs | Our Paleo Life

It wasn’t until just recently that I discovered I liked ribs. I was raised in the south and there were always ribs to eat and I just never wanted them. I really don’t like to get messy when I eat. If I can’t use a fork or spoon, I probably won’t eat it (burgers totally […]
