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…

Tangy BBQ Sauce {paleo}


The fact that I even made this sauce is a bit comical to me. It didn’t occur to me until I was almost done stirring all the ingredients together that I actually do not really like barbecue sauce. It’s one of the last condiments I would try if there were a condiment buffet in front…

BBQ Baked Bean Chili


With a vat of leftover Spicy Southern BBQ Baked Beans and few people (besides my dad) to help me eat them, I knew I needed to come up with an alternative that would tone down the extreme spiciness of the dish. Using ingredients in the fridge and cupboard, I settled on a sweet and spicy…

BBQ Pulled Pork


The last time I made pulled pork, I was a bit disappointed. The taste of the roast was great but the meat wasn’t tender enough to shred. After consulting with my coworker, Micah, I learned you have to cook pork low and slow. So when Micah gave me a vat of his homemade BBQ sauce…
