Recipe: Baked Apple-Nut Crisp

I’m guessing I’m not the only one turning to warm, cozy foods when the days get shorter, darker, and colder. But my experiences so far with grain- and refined sugar-free apple crisps had left me…well, less than comforted. I think we can all admit that without wheat flour and oats, crisps just aren’t the same. […]

Recipe: Dark Chocolate Sandwich Nibbles

Since I’m at Paleo F/X this week, I’m keeping it simple with the recipe, but I don’t think you’ll mind. You know how it goes. I know you do. Sure, sure. Here in the Paleo world we talk a lot about grass-fed beef and broccoli and greens and…omigawd, I fell asleep. Because sometimes you just […]

‘Tis the Season

Ah, the holidays. Though it may vary depending on where you live and what you believe, there are usually pine trees or pine tree pieces about, annoying holiday-themed pop music playing in stores, images of an old bearded man everywhere, or perhaps a menorah. My parents are both Episcopalians, and I was raised attending Midnight […]

Recipe: Almond-Stuffed Pears

Who says you can’t have dessert on a Whole30?! Okay, maybe Whole9 does, but if they did approve of a dessert for a Whole30, this would have to qualify. This could especially come in handy if you find yourself saddled with hosting duty during your Whole30 or need something to bring to a dinner party […]

Recipe: Almond Butter-Coconut Milk Parfait

Just because I’m whole30ing doesn’t mean I don’t like an occasional treat. This came to me one day and it’s been my go-to for dessert or a quick snack when needed. One of the loveliest things about this WOE is how it breaks down the psychological barriers we’ve built up in our minds about how […]

Recipe: Primal Frangipane Tart

Oh, have I got a treat for you. Not only is this dessert Primal friendly, but it’s also fairly quick and simple to put together. Especially if you put a little extra effort into the presentation, no one will be the wiser that it’s not full of flour and sugar. Frangipane and I go way […]

Entertaining? Some Primal-Friendly Ideas

I’ve had several nights of entertaining in a row, and while I’m freshly tapped out of original recipes, I thought I’d share what fed the throngs of visitors we’ve had recently. All of these menus were relatively simple and I doubt anyone would even miss the grains or sugars. Also have to apologize for the […]

Recipe: Primal Banana Bread

That “B” word doesn’t show up much around these parts. But I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect banana bread for years. Going Primal didn’t slow my urge for a moist, dense loaf of bananafied goodness, so I decided to try a few recipes out there. What I kept running into was something closer […]

Recipe: Strawberry-Vanilla Almond Muffins

Yeah, yeah, I know. This is really just an easy change to a recipe I just posted. So sue me. But this version was such a wonderful hit of spring that I had to share. Besides, I was swimming—SWIMMING!—in strawberries and I needed to find a way to use them before they decomposed on me. […]

Recipe: Dirty Snowballs

I don’t know what’s wrong with me. A smidgen over a month into this whole Primal thing and my subconscious mind is beginning to rebel. I should start by saying that I’ve never been one with overwhelming food urges, and when presented with delectable treats, I have no trouble with portion control. But lately I’ve […]
