2015 Paleo Thanksgiving Recap

Thanksgiving was pretty low-key this year at our house.  It was just the four of us and the cats. I did roast the annual Ferndale Farms pastured turkey, and there was pumpkin pie, of course.  The exciting part was the addition of Otto’s cassava flour to the recipes.  It made an awesome gravy thickener, as […]

Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there, and especially to my husband! The celebration started Saturday with a sampling of recipes from The Paleo Kitchen. Fluffy Blueberry Pancakes and Lemon Raspberry Swirl Muffins were both outstanding – as is everything George Bryant dreams up! Sunday morning we had pastured eggs and bacon with tea […]

29 with 18 Years’ Experience

We couldn’t have had a more beautiful day to celebrate here in Minnesota.  Sunny and mid-70’s was perfect for tea al fresco at the local Farmhouse coffee shop and my son’s all-school picnic lunch.  Surprised him with our favorite sushi takeout and made his day.  🙂 I was also treated to birthday balloons and flowers […]

Trail Mix Bites

Spring Cleaning time is approaching and I am starting with the cupboards and pantry this year.  I had a few partial packages of baking goods to use up, so I made some bite-sized snacks for lunches, etc. I happened to have some shredded coconut, raisins and chocolate mini-chips, but one could add nuts, seeds and […]

Magic Wand

I’ve had one of these immersion blenders in my kitchen for a few years now. It’s been used for smoothies, guacamole and Paleo Mayo.  Very handy that way. Last night it demonstrated a new skill: pureeing soups.  I know, I know…so many people have posted recipes for carrot, squash or creamed broccoli soup, etc, but […]

2013 in Review: Rollercoaster Year

Happy New Year, Everyone!  Sad to say I didn’t make it to midnight.  So close! This was the first year Alex tried to stay up until midnight, but by 11pm or so we were both teetering – and NOT from alcohol! We collapsed into our beds without seeing the sparkly ball drop.  Oh well, maybe […]

Curcurbit Crazy at Pumpkin Palooza!

The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum hosts a Pumpkin Palooza every Fall. The varieties of squash and pumpkin are AMAZING!  Check out these pix! And it just wouldn’t be Fall without our favorite pumpkin recipes! Use George’s Banana Bread recipe and substitute roasted pumpkin for the banana!  YUM! Pumpkin is George’s favorite!  Here are a bunch of his (Caveman) […]

Paleo Faileo

I’d like to think I’ve become a good cook over the years, but every once in a while I flop big time.  This was one of those times. *sigh* I attempted the General Tso’s Chicken recipe from Gather and my boys hated it – as in – would. NOT. eat. it.  I am so disappointed. […]

COOKIES!! *nom nom nom*

My son asked to make chocolate chip cookies out of the blue.  I’d seen recipes for Paleo versions online, so I looked them up and agreed to make some on a rainy day (today). After comparing a few options, we settled on this version from The Food Lover’s Kitchen.  [They are the authors of the new […]
