Peppermint Fudge

Peppermint Fudge

I’ve always loved fudge…well, who am I kidding, I’ve always loved a lot of things.  But fudge is always considered extra special to me.  I literally turned my kitchen in to a treat factory over these past couple of weeks.  I had this grand idea to make valentines love boxes – see below It’s been fun and dangerous all at the same time.  I’ve been delving into blogs and buying cookbooks that I probably shouldn’t have to get it all together.   And thank God I’m starting the 21 day sugar detox on Monday because I’m sure I have eaten […]

Salted Chocolate Almond Candy Bar

Salted Chocolate Almond Candy Bar

Lately my husband, (yes, I’m going to blame him for bringing this to our house and forcing me to eat them) has been buying this salted almond chocolate bars.  Have you seen em? I believe they are from the devil.  I always tell him, “okay, fine, just give me ONE square.”  Has anyone ever just eaten ONE square!?! Probably never.  Needless to say the madness had to stop and so I created what I thought would be a better option then the store bought candy bar.  It was real tough testing all these to make sure I got it just […]

Paleo Snow Ice Cream

Paleo Snow Ice Cream

                                  It snowed buckets here over the past couple of days and it is FREEZING!  Not just outside but in my house!  We’re renting this cute historic home while we build our new house.  WELL, we signed up for this when it was all cute and fun and pleasant outside.  I fell in love with all the gorgeous windows that I’m now cursing because you can literally feel the wind coming through the windows.  I sleep with sweats, a fleece, 2 pairs of socks, […]

Pecan Protein Bombs

Pecan Protein Bombs

Well hello there.  It has been eons since I’ve posted, I know.  I had a bug within my site, then decided to revamp it and get a new design and low and behold here we are NINE months laters.  Sheesh!  I am excited to be back and I have LOTS of things up my sleeve to post.  I thought I would start first with a simple ball recipe.  You know I love balls…har har…  You can go back on the blog and see my 5 days of ball recipes.  I love to make balls because they make an easy snack/treat […]

Nourishing Bone Broth

Nourishing Bone Broth

Serves: 5

Time: 30 min

Difficulty: 3

“Good broth will resurrect the dead,” says a South American proverb. Said Escoffier: “Indeed, stock is everything in cooking. Without it, nothing can be done.” I took this quote from the Weston Price website. If you’ve never visited the site, you should check it out. There is a wealth of information there. I’ve been making my own stock now for quite some time. The nutritional benefits from making your own stock (and for avoiding the toxic store bought stuff) are HUGE! Some say it can cure colds/increase your immune system, build strong bones, be a digestive aid/gut healer, joint support, […]

Loaded Sweet Potato + dairy free sour cream

Loaded Sweet Potato + dairy free sour cream

Inspired by a photo I saw from The Urban Poser-gah, I LOVE that lady, I decided to give it a whirl and the results were AMAZING! So amazing that Denny wanted to eat it again tonight for dinner! This dinner is pretty darn simple, although you do need to think ahead a bit to prep the sour cream. I thought I read some where about making your own coconut sour cream but I didn’t get to experiment so I ended up with this dairy free sour cream with a cashew base. (Side note- it is also really good dipped with […]

Caramel or Almond Butter Candy Cups

Caramel or Almond Butter Candy Cups

Uh wha??? Candy!?! Yep, that’s right. Just in time to make a little treat for your sweetie for valentines day. I was so thrilled how these turned out and how “official candy looking” they look! The best part is that they are pretty easy to make. ****UPDATE**** Oh my o my! Life changing- thats all… These things are amazing with homemade almond butter and you will flip your lid. I kept telling Jude, “just wait babe, when you try these, you’re gonna flip your lid.” And he was all “what lid mom, what are you talking about?” Haha So step […]

Sauteed Cabbage and Sausage

Sauteed Cabbage and Sausage

It was approaching the dinner hour and I had no idea what I was making. If you know my house then you know that is a sign of immediate danger. Hungry kids+hungry hubby+no plan= bad night. So what to do in a hurry? I like to keep some local sausage handy in the freezer for these times. It’s fast and easy and always delicious. So as luck would have it we had some old soul beef brats in the freezer. I thawed them out and cooked them at 375 for about 30 minutes. While they where baking I prepared the […]

The BEST popcorn

The BEST popcorn

Although popcorn isn’t the best for the ‘ol paleo way of eating, it sure is delicious and makes a nice every once in a while treat. It should be noted that you want to purchase organic non-GMO popcorn. (Corn, soy, and wheat are the bigges for having GMO’s) And PUH-lease skip the microwave, eek! This recipe is so easy and much much better for you than the toxic load that comes in the the microwave stuff. I googled the ingredient list for the flavored microwave bags…are you ready? Here ya go: ORVILLE REDENBACHER’S, MICROWAVE SHAKEABLES, REAL RANCH POPCORN INGREDIENTS: Popcorn […]

Did I show you this yet? I tell ya, those kale chips are pretty darn tasty! Some of the other answers were pizza, ice cream, chocolate etc. And ya know what? That would probably be the case with Jude as well if we didn’t role model for him. And don’t get me wrong, Jude loves his fair share of the toxic stuff (that’s what we call it around here) but he loves his kale too. I believe that those little eyes are always watching you and so the best way to show your child how to eat is by making […]
