Dill is an often under-utilized herb because it is most commonly associated with pickles and not much else. But in cultures outside of America, it is widely used in a variety of dishes.
These homemade larabars require very few ingredients. Don’t pay a buck for a bar when you can make it fresh at home in any flavor combination you want.
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 […]
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 […]
Many of you may know that our son was the cause for us finally taking the plunge into paleo. We had toyed with the idea for some time, even attempting the change a year earlier, but it wasn’t until we realized our son needed a change in his diet in order to help him control […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Oh man, this past week has made me extremely aware (more than usual, somehow) that food prep is so incredibly important on a Whole30. I mean, I always knew this, I practice it often, but something about this past week has just hammered it home. Now that the holidays are over, traveling has come to […]
One of the things people often miss most when starting a Paleo diet is the “crunch” of various foods. I can relate. I definitely got tired very quickly of only eating food that was either chewy or mushy. So I spent a long time trying to come up with dishes that would replace that crunch […]
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 […]
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 […]
You know what just hit us? The heat. The oppressive 100-degree heat. It’s been raining and hailing out here in Colorado every afternoon like clockwork, but now the heat has arrived. This is going to be one of those weeks where I just sit inside, and hopefully work on more of those recipes that I […]
