Mini Pizza Bites {grain-free, dairy-free option} by Our Paleo Life

Mini Pizza Bites {grain-free, dairy-free option}

The weather in Colorado is a strange thing. Having spent the majority of my life in Florida, I was used to fairly consistent weather year-round. Our brief stint in Minnesota taught me that there were, in fact, 4 seasons each year. Now that we’re in Colorado, I have discovered it’s possible to have all 4 […]

Carrot Cake w/ Maple Meringue Frosting by Our Paleo Life

Carrot Cake w/ Maple Meringue Frosting {grain-free, dairy-free}

There’s something about the cold weather and early evening darkness that has me wanting to bake cakes all the time. So I apologize in advance for having so many cake-related recipes lately, but when you need a chocolate or carrot cake, at least you know I have you covered 🙂 Back in November, we took […]

Cherry Buttercream Frosting by Our Paleo Life

Cherry Buttercream Frosting

Have you ever had plans to do something, then something else happens that sidetracks you and it takes you a while to get back to it? Yeah, me too. Like this recipe. I’m actually embarrassed to say I started on it back in July 2014. Is 18 months too long of a sidetrack? Maybe it […]

Apple Cider Caramels {dair-free, no corn syrup} by Our Paleo Life

Apple Cider Caramels {dairy-free}

Many, many, many Christmases ago (okay, maybe it was only 8-ish years, but it feels like way more), I decided it would be fun to whip up about 8-10 different holiday treats for about a dozen different families. I went all out, for real. I got these adorable little candy-striped boxes, and holiday bags and […]

Grain-Free Chocolate Mud Cake by Our Paleo Life

Grain-Free Chocolate Mud Cake {with Otto’s Cassava Flour}

This cake. I had planned on making this cake in celebration of my (gulp) 35th birthday (which is a week from tomorrow). But I couldn’t wait until my actual birthday to share this with you. I had to post it immediately. But let me just tell you, all the moms/grandmas/aunts/sisters/girls/women in your life would probably love you forever if you made them this cake for their birthday. Just saying…

Vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream by Our Paleo Life

Vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream {dairy-free}

I’ve been craving a really great frosting for a couple months now. My old go-to (pre-paleo) was the usual: powdered sugar, butter, cream. You know, classic buttercream. I had mastered it. Enter paleo, and not a single one of those ingredients is on the “ok” list. So I was back to square one. In my […]

Maple Cinnamon Almond Butter

Do you have a favorite of a certain type of food and never veer from that? Like you always get the same burger from the local burger joint, never venturing into the other combinations they offer? You know it’s what you like, so why bother tempting fate and wasting your precious burger time on a […]

Instant Pot Beef Stew by Our Paleo Life

Instant Pot Beef Stew (w/ Otto’s Cassava Flour)

Our family recently returned from a 10-day trip to Florida to visit family. I grew up in Florida, so I was used to the heat and humidity, but then I left and my body just cannot handle it anymore. While it was great seeing my family again, I was so glad to come back home […]

Paleo Pudding Pops {dairy-free}

So here’s the deal. I know it’s practically October. And I know temperatures are dipping (although, let’s be honest, September in Colorado this year was stupid hot). BUT, that doesn’t mean we can’t still eat pudding pops. Because pudding pops are great and there is no right or wrong season for them. Last Sunday, I […]

Creamy Paleo Pudding, 4 Flavors {dairy-free}

Creamy Paleo Pudding, 4 Flavors {dairy-free}

I was really hoping to have another crazy chicken lady update today about chicken #2 laying her first egg, but she is still totally freeloading. As are the other 6 girls. Sigh… I spent a good portion of my weekend testing yeast breads. Ordinarily, this wouldn’t be too complicated for me. However, add in the […]

Paleo Miracle Mayo by Our Paleo Life

Paleo Miracle Mayo

If you love the taste of Miracle Whip but hate all the weird ingredients, this is the mayo for you. Sweetened with honey, it’s even better than the store-bought stuff.

Mini Paleo Turkey Meatloaves {by Merit + Fork}

Mini Paleo Turkey Meatloaves {by Merit + Fork}

What it is, jive turkeys! I’m baaaaack! I missed my December OPL guest post & was on a Caribbean cruise during last month’s Paleo Pomegranate-Ginger Sticky Wings guest post. Now, I’m back and it’s time to party. If you’ve never made turkey meatloaf before, I can guarantee you’re missing out. This veggie-packed paleo turkey meatloaf […]

Chicken Bacon Ranch Omelett {by The Primal Desire}

Chicken Bacon Ranch Omelette {by The Primal Desire}

Can you believe it’s already the middle of January?  Did you do a 21 day sugar detox, Whole 30, or paleo challenge to start off your year?  Raj and I did, 30 days strict paleo.  I find the orthodox paleo far less restrictive than a 21 day sugar detox or AIP (Autoimmune protocol) Diet.  If […]

Easy Egg Salad {by Our Paleo Life}

Easy Egg Salad

I don’t know about you, but January is flying by. Over halfway done, and at this rate, it will be 2016 in a few months. Fortunately, we live in Colorado and that means we’ve gotten a break from the super cold winter weather. Yesterday, we had all the windows and doors open, and the breeze […]

Instant Strawberry Yogurt {dairy-free, paleo}

Instant Strawberry “Yogurt” {dairy-free}

I’ll be honest with you, I’m not perfect, I’m sometimes not even an 80/20 paleo person. I will cave and eat some totally paleo-illegal foods. I don’t have allergies or severe effects from most foods, this is a choice that my family has made without being forced into due to medical reasons. That said, dairy […]
