Easy Green Monster Sauce

Easy Green Monster Sauce

I’ve started the January Whole30 a couple of days ago so over the weekend, I did a bunch of meal prep to get me through my first few days back to work after the holiday break. Have you ever done a Whole30? If you haven’t, […]

Christmas Cut-Out Cookies

Christmas Cut-Out Cookies

I’m in charge of the gluten and dairy-free desserts for our annual extended family Christmas party this year. Because of this, I’ve been recipe testing several different cookie recipes in anticipation. This recipe for Paleo Christmas Cutout Cookies are grain-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar free. […]

Paleo Chocolate Crinkles

Paleo Chocolate Crinkles

I’ve been seriously neglectful about writing lately. Vacations, holidays, and family events have made my schedule a bit chaotic but I’m back now! My family (and hopefully, my schedule) is entering a slower time. I’ve got dozens of posts I’ve been meaning to write and […]

Brazilian Cheese Bread Wreathes

Brazilian Cheese Bread Wreathes

One of my family’s favorite restaurants here in town is a Brazilian steakhouse called Tucano’s Brazilian Grill. If you’ve never been to a Brazilian steakhouse before and you’re a carnivore, you’re missing out! Basically, it’s a carnivore’s dream where they bring big skewers of every […]

Dairy & Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate “Cheese”cake

Dairy & Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate “Cheese”cake

I’m in charge of the pies this year for Thanksgiving. Wish me luck! Pies are always a hit or miss thing for me, especially when trying for a gluten-free version. I don’t do well with baking that requires a delicate touch. Usually, I’m just too […]

Paleo Potato Pancakes

Paleo Potato Pancakes

One of my favorite holiday leftovers is mashed potatoes. Not just because I like them reheated (which I do, with tons of gravy!) but because I grew up making potato pancakes with those leftover potatoes! My dad and I went on several kicks where we’d […]

Flourless Trail Mix Cookies

Flourless Trail Mix Cookies

It’s Fall now and I’m all about the baking nowadays. Bring on the breads, cookies, and cakes! I’ve always been a better baker, I think, than cook. While I enjoy both, I think baking lends more creativity, don’t you think? I’m not a decorator though! […]

#Choctoberfest Wrap-up and White Chocolate Pumpkin Mousse

#Choctoberfest Wrap-up and White Chocolate Pumpkin Mousse

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen in my stories my epic failure in my first go-around with these chocolate cups. I saw a Tasty video where they made these cups with a mousse filling and I thought, “I could do that […]

The Best and Easiest Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever!

The Best and Easiest Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever!

Many years ago (ok, not TOO many. I’m not that old!), a former roommate introduced me to a chocolate chip cookie recipe that changed my life. It had Jell-o pudding mix in it and that ingredient transformed my cookies into soft, tender, cake-y piles of […]

Paleo Pumpkin Chocolate Fudge

Paleo Pumpkin Chocolate Fudge

Aren’t these fudge bites the cutest? I couldn’t resist this candy mold when I saw it at Target the other day. It was just perfect for my Paleo pumpkin chocolate fudge recipe I had in mind!  *I was provided free product from Barlean’s in exchange […]
