Effortless Paleo Granola Bars

One of the biggest challenges with living a Paleo lifestyle is finding good food on the go.  Unfortunately 99.9% of portable “food” is all processed crap full of sugar, sodium, fat and products that we shouldn’t even be consuming.  Granola bars were always one of my favorite travel snacks, prior to eating Paleo, because they […]

Vanilla Poached Figs & Cherries with Coconut Cream

There isn’t much I can say about this dessert other than AMAZING! So I’m just going to cut to the chase and throw you the recipe. Figs and vanilla beans are probably not something you just have lying around the house (oddly enough, I did), but I highly recommend gathering the ingredients and giving this […]

Baked Grapefruit

Tart, tangy and sweet, grapefruits are typically a love them or leave them type of fruit.  But if you can get them on the sweeter side, when they are in season, nothing can be more satisfying during a Saturday morning breakfast.  I’ll admit, I used to have a thing for gin and fresh squeezed grapefruit, […]

Grilled Peaches

It’s almost peach season! Peaches are the most perfect fruit! Sweet, juicy, light, but still flavorful and with a soft texture, there is nothing as good.  Growing up in Oklahoma, we had the juiciest most flavorful peaches you could ever imagine.  I grew up with an orchard where the peach trees would flourish. During season, […]

Sweet Potato Brownies

One of the things that excites me the most about eating Paleo (besides the fact that I feel great) is the creativity with food.  Vaughan and I have always been adventurous when it comes to food, looking for the most eccentric items on the menu, we will pretty much try anything! From jellyfish at Hakkasan […]

Paleo Apple Butter

Although most people will agree that apple butter seems to be a perfect fall recipe, for me it is the perfect anytime recipe when organic apples are on sale. I can’t resist homemade apple sauce or apple butter, and this past weekend I gathered a couple varieties of apples from the store that were really […]

Paleo Cinnamon Rolls

If you are looking for that gooey, stretchy, puffy cinnamon roll that we all ate when we were kids at our grandmothers house, then you should probably move on. BUT, if you are looking for that awesome cinnamon, sweet, sinful taste that you remember so much without the wheat and tons of sugar, then this […]

Avocado Chocolate Mousse – Too good to be true!

When I first heard about using avocados to create a chocolate mousse, I was very skeptical.  Now I’m pretty adventurous with food and I think I would probably try everything once but I wasn’t diving in to try this recipe.  Until that is, my friend Deborah gave me a grain free crust purchased from Whole […]

Banana Pancakes

I have tried MANY paleo pancake recipes and just can’t seem to find one that I like. So, I decided to try to come up with one of mine own and I have to say, I’m pretty happy with the results. These aren’t pancakes that I will make a lot (mostly because we seldom have […]

Guilt Free Bon Bons

I hear bon bons and I instantly visualize a woman with her hair in rollers, licking her fingers with chocolate all over her face and an expression of just being busted doing something she wasn’t supposed to.  Ok so maybe that is just my image, but bon bons for me have always had this indulgent […]
