february sweet treats series :: chocolate almond butter cups {paleo}

Upon going paleo-style I was dismayed to discover that peanut butter was not on the docket any longer as a staple food item. Sigh. I love(d) peanut butter. However, a close (now, very close!) second on the love-o-meter is almond butter. It's nearly the same texture, it's still got that nutty goodness that I love, … Continue reading february sweet treats series :: chocolate almond butter cups {paleo}

february sweet treats series :: chocolate chip cookies {paleo}

I have a sweet tooth and I married a man who has more of a sweet tooth than me. We both love a little somethin' sweet from time to time: after a meal, at a party, in the middle of the day for no reason at all.

I'm a sucker for a road trip! I love the packing, the prepping, the loading up of the car, getting on the open road, listening to an awesome playlist, chattin' it up with your roady companions.

mashed sweet potatoes {paleo}

I was never a big fan of sweet potatoes until we started eating paleo, unless they were fried or battered (those days are over!). But since our healthier lifestyle ensued, I've become quite fond of these vibrant, pinkish-orange, tropical tubers! We even found a┬áDELICIOUS paleo sweet potato casserole last year for Thanksgiving (that you can … Continue reading mashed sweet potatoes {paleo}

My husband is an amazing cook. Cooking is for him what shopping is for me. It relaxes him, helps him focus, gives him a creative outlet. And can I just say how ecstatic I was to discover in our courtship that the man loves to cook AND he's good at it?!?! He chops and purees … Continue reading paleo meal plan: january 2014

Then he'd pour the batter onto a well-greased griddle into perfect circles, and on special occasions, … Continue reading pancakes {paleo} yum
