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 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 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: Blueberry-Apricot Cardamom Almond Flour Muffins

Whew, that’s a mouthful! And yes they were. A tasty, tasty mouthful. It was that time again, time for a substitution treat, so I trolled the internet looking for a muffin recipe (see my previous article about substitutions here). I’m not a great baker. Never was pre-Primal either. So you won’t find many original baking […]
