Shepherds Pie {paleo}


I’m not sure why I settled on paleo a recipe for Shepherd’s pie because I generally do not care for Irish food and I’ve never made a traditional Shepherd’s pie. I’ve made what I would consider to be fun twists, like a Thanksgiving Day Shepherd’s Pie and Southwest Shepherd’s Pie but the regular variety never…

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread {paleo, GF}


I was nervous about making this bread because previous attempts at paleo banana bread turned out dry and undercooked at the same time. How does that happen you ask? The middle was undercooked (but moist) while the edges were dry. Like dust. The recipe used coconut flour. I am not bowled over by coconut flour,…

Banana Pancakes {paleo, GF}


I have vivid memories of pancakes from my childhood. I grew up eating pancakes. My mom and grandma both made a fantastic buttermilk pancake but they always turned out sort of flat. The vivid memories of flavored pancakes take me back to sleepovers I had as a child. For about a year or so, I…

Roasted Pepper Chorizo Savory Pie {paleo, GF}


Let’s talk about spice for a minute. I like spice. Sometimes I think I think I can tolerate spice a bit more than my body actually can but a bit of a kick is nice. I bought some chorizo this weekend thinking I could make some sort of egg dish for breakfast. So I set…

BBQ Chicken Casserole w/Sweet Potatoes {paleo}


I have this amazing recipe for paleo BBQ that I discovered a few weeks ago. You know it has to be good because I’m honestly not even a fan of BBQ sauce. Weird, right? Isn’t everyone a BBQ sauce lover? I am now that I found this tangy recipe for BBQ sauce. I would eat…

Delicata Squash Pancakes {paleo, GF}


I’m a pancake girl. I always have been. So delighted was I to discover you can make healthier pancakes that are grain free and guilt free too. I played around with a recipe to find a good base for starchy vegetables such as sweet potatoes and pumpkin. When I saw that people were making pancakes…

Grain Free Dutch Baby Pancake


Let’s talk about pears for a minute. I’m very particular about them. I only like them when they are green and crunchy – like an apple – and I’m particular to the Bartlett kind, I pass on any other. So when I realized that I had a ripe pear in my refrigerator (the horror!) I…

Peanut Butter Blossom {reboot}


Prior to Thanksgiving I had all this gusto when I thought about all the Christmas cookies I wanted to make this year. I planned to dedicate Black Friday to cookie making. Then Thanksgiving happened. I mean I cooked and cleaned all day long. It was exhausting. So I didn’t much feel like making Christmas cookies…

Easy Paleo Cookie Dough Ice Cream


From the title of this post you should realize that the recipe for this “ice cream” is frighteningly easy. All it is is frozen banana chunks, almond butter, salt, vanilla and cacao powder whirled in a food processor with some edible cookie dough thrown in. It is not like real ice cream. You see that…

Healthy Egg-Free Cookie Dough {Vegan, Paleo, GF}


I’ve been scouring the internet for a really good grain-free cookie dough recipe and I have to tell you that I’ve seen some weird and varying recipes. I decided to pass on the recipes that used banana (banana is so strong I figured it would taint the taste) or mega amounts of almond flour, butter…
