Takeout dinners are so tempting. You manage to make it through the whole day successfully, then you remember that your kids have activities that evening and you completely forgot to cook dinner and everyone’s tummies are grumbling (and their mouths are whining).
Switching up breakfast with something like a dairy free quiche option is sometimes exactly what is needed (to help keep you motivated).
The end of Daylight Savings has had some unexpected consequences around here. No, not a disruption of kids’ schedules, or mild depression over the fact that it looks like midnight at 5pm (ok, maybe a little bit of that). The real problem is with the chickens. This will be our second winter as chicken parents, […]
These balsamic and red wine braised short ribs are the perfect comfort food on a chilly winter day. Made with coconut sugar and paleo-friendly ingredients, these are a kid favorite.
I’ve been on a dehydrating kick lately. When we had an overflow of peaches so I made fruit leather with them, as well as dehydrating slices (so good, by the way). The fruit leather was a hit with the kids, but I ran out of peaches, and wanted to use what I already had on […]
I’ve been contemplating a pancake recipe for quite a while now. We’ve been cheating on paleo with a gluten-free recipe that’s made with rice flour, so it’s still gluten-free, just not strict paleo. I knew that we needed pancakes made with my all-time favorite Otto’s Naturals cassava flour instead, so I got to work. But, […]
First things first: yes, this recipe contains dairy. And no, dairy is not considered paleo. White potatoes are good to go on the paleo diet, though. That said, our family does, on occasion, eat dairy. It’s not a staple in our diet, but we do splurge and this is one of those splurges for us. […]
For Labor Day weekend, our family took our last camping trip of the season. Just before we left, I realized I still had over 2 dozen peaches that would go bad if we left them at home for the 4 days we would be gone. So with 2 days to spare, I made as much […]
It’s that time of year again, when the Colorado peaches invade my kitchen (in a good way). Since we still don’t have a peach tree, I’ve resorted to buying my Palisade Peaches from roadside stands, but that is getting pretty expensive. Fortunately for me, a woman at church was trying to find a home for […]
I can’t even begin to count how many times I have stood in front of the open fridge, staring at the meat drawer, thinking “What am I going to make for dinner?”. It’s not like the contents of the drawer will magically change, I could just close the fridge and figure it out, but I […]
Good morning, sunshines! Or do you usually just mutter “ugh, morning”. I’m usually more of the latter, a night-owl, if you will. Always have been, probably always will be. I always say “I’m going to go to bed at 10pm and wake up with the sun” and then midnight rolls around and I give up. […]
About a month ago, I signed up to bring chili to our church’s Pinewood Derby and Chili Cook-Off activity. The derby was for everyone, not just the scouts, so I took that opportunity and got all Pinterest-y and found lots of tips to make a super fast derby car with my oldest daughter. I was […]
It’s spring, which means everything is changing from brown to green! Or, in the case of Colorado this week, from brown to white. March is one of (if not THE) snowiest months here, and while we expected to get some snow, I don’t think we were really expecting to get as dumped on as we […]
I can’t even begin to tell you how spoiled I am, but I’ll try anyway. I grew up in Florida, 27 years there. It’s hot, humid. Summer is the main season, the other 3 are just a fleeting thought. But that’s all I knew for 27 years. Then my husband ripped me from my hot, […]
It has been 3 years (THREE YEARS? How has it been that long?) since I originally posted this recipe and never took any pictures of them. Every time I make them, I think “I should really take pictures and post them with the recipe” but do I do it? No. Until now. When I originally […]
