So, you know how I was just talking about how much I love Fall and it’s the bestest of all the seasons? Well, Rob decided we needed to go take advantage of the cooler temps and head up to the mountains for the weekend to check out the beautiful Aspens changing to their golden hues. […]
Life is getting pretty hectic around here lately. The kids have activities 4 nights a week and football games every Saturday morning. It’s taking a toll on my meal planning. I don’t know how parents handle teenagers and their activities! Holy cow, I’m stressed with a 6-year-old & 8-year-old, I might not make it to […]
You know what I love about summer? I mean besides the warm weather, camping, fun with my kids, and summer storms. I love the farmer’s market. We have a local farm that has a great CSA and we go every week and get delicious stuff. This week I got some of the best Honeycrisp apples […]
P.F. Chang’s Mongolian Beef with paleo ingredients? You don’t have to pinch yourself, this isn’t a dream. Now you can enjoy your favorite restaurant meal in the comfort of you home for way less money and all while maintaining your healthy lifestyle.
You can’t go wrong with BBQ or bacon, and this delicious recipe is stuffed with both! Easy to prepare, healthy, and delicious enough that everyone will ask for more. Plus, it’s a great way to sneak in some greens.
Wait, what? Baking a steak? I know, it might sound strange, because it’s not how we’ve been programmed to cook steak. Steak should br grilled, seared, but not baked. However, this is one of those less commonly used cooking methods that really should gain more traction. The best part about this is that you can […]
So, first off, let me apologize for disappearing for almost 2 weeks. What the heck?! I don’t even know how that happened. I’ve got 2 posts I’ve been working on but just haven’t had the (kid-free) time to concentrate on them and I’ve been in a food rut (meaning we’ve been eating out too much […]
You know what I love? Crock pots. I love crock pots. I got mine a decade ago as my very first engagement gift from my grandma. When I got it, I thought, “Well isn’t that nice, but I’ll probably never use it”. I was so naive. Crock pots are freaking awesome. You just throw a […]
You know how you stare in the fridge and pantry and can’t figure out what the freak you should make? You just keep staring like the food will rearrange itself and magically make your dinner for you. Or you will have some sudden burst of inspiration. Yeah, I do that. So last night, as I […]
Gonna be honest here, I’ve never actually had gnocchi. I suppose that automatically makes my opinion worthless on the topic, but I’ll keep going anyway. As you’re probably well aware by now, I’m always looking for new ways to prepare sweet potatoes. I had heard of gnocchi before and did some research on how to […]
Teriyaki anything is great. But what’s even better than that is easy food. Even better than that? Delicious easy food. And that’s what this is. There’s minimal stirring and no chopping. Just check on it every once in a while and you’re good to go. This is one of those dishes that is perfect to […]
Raise your hand if you love the lettuce wraps at P.F. Chang’s. You should have both hands up right now, otherwise we can’t be friends. Ok, good. Moving on… We don’t have a P.F. Chang’s in town. It’s actually been about 5 years since I lived in the same city as one. Not that the […]
This is another one of those long-forgotten recipes that recently resurfaced and I’m so glad that it did. I used to use this stuff ALL the time and it made everything taste better. Everything. It’s the “I-don’t-know-what-to-make-for-dinner-but-I-have-chicken-in-the-fridge-so-I’ll-smother-this-on-it” rub, and everyone will love it and praise you. Obviously, just looking at the measurements, this makes a […]
I used to make this dish all the time in my per-paleo life. It was my go-to dish to bring to new moms, sick families, or anyone in need. It is quick, easy, delicious, and filling. But because it contained red potatoes, I sort of dismissed it as non-paleo and forgot about it. I know, […]
