Here is another great pancake recipe using almond flour. We have been enjoying this one for over a year now. It’s packed with Omega-3 rich eggs and lots of protein, so I don’t feel bad serving them to my daughter with a side of bacon and some fruit. The original source is the Paleo Comfort Foods recipe book, edits are mine. Continue reading

Sometimes special occasions call for a decadent dessert. What’s a paleo diet follower to do? Well……I choose to loosen my restrictions on sugar but still remain gluten-free and this dessert proved to be the perfect thing for a special treat. The recipe calls for a 10″ springform pan which is so easy to use and makes a beautiful presentation. Continue reading

We enjoyed this fabulous recipe from AMAZING PALEO last night. I have to admit we were skeptical at first because of the amount of curry, but my husband and I definitely want to have these again soon. Please click the link below to be taken to the AMAZING PALEO web site…..her post and pictures are fantastic! I prepared the dish exactly as she has it written, except I didn’t add quite as much curry to the sauce (only about 2 teaspoons).

Tried this recipe from Just A Taste last night and it was fantastic! A touch of cocoa powder and a bottle of beer……who knew? The author recommends serving with pickled onions and cotija cheese….would have been great last night but I had neither on hand so we served it with leftover slaw. It was great to put it all in the crock pot early in the morning and have a great dinner waiting when we got home from a busy evening. Try it! Click on THIS link to see the author’s presentation and notes, her site it awesome too…..just don’t jump off the Paleo wagon when you visit it! Continue reading

Lately I’ve been cooking from Sarah Frogoso’s latest recipe book, EVERYDAY PALEO FAMILY COOKBOOK. After trying five or so of the recipes, I can say I highly recommend you buy the book. The recipes we have tried thus far have been well received by my family and have had more thumbs-up than thumbs-down. Here’s one of our favorite new go-to recipes which is quick, easy, and popular…..music to my ears! I also made this for a friend who was ill. It travels and reheats well and was liked by her kiddos.

I made this easy roast chicken today to take to a friend who is home with a brand new baby. It’s very easy and well-received by children, as it has no “spice” to it. The recipe is from Everydaypaleo.com.
1 free range/farm raised 4-5 lb chicken
Preheat oven to 450. Wash chicken and thoroughly dry the chicken inside the cavity and out with paper towels. Place the chicken in a roasting pan and generously sprinkle the entire chicken with sea salt (inside the cavity as well). The recipe on epicurious said to “rain” the salt down on the chicken, maybe that’s the secret…. I did not tress it, add any butter, thyme, or even pepper, just the salt, and after about an hour in the oven, the chicken was crispy golden brown on the outside and incredibly tender, juicy, flavorful and delicious on the inside! The best parts of the chicken is what we could pick right off the bones – my two year old ate most of his dinner before we even got the chicken to the table…
I served the chicken with mashed cauliflower that I seasoned with garlic powder and black pepper as well as a fresh arugula and spring mix salad with diced apples, olive oil, and lemon juice.
