Portobello Mushroom Paleo Taco

 My birthday was this past weekend.  I’m old enough that many people my age lie about their number.  I’ve been thinking a lot recently about the different paths people’s lives take.  How different our experiences are.  Even though most people my age are married with kids, have bought a house, and have set up or…

Fresh Tomato Paleo Ketchup

There is sugar in EVERYTHING.  Nearly all packaged or processed food contains added sugar.  It is an epidemic.  Fresh Tomato Paleo Ketchup saves the day with sweet ketchup goodness without a pile of sugar. Well tomatoes aren’t in season any more, but ketchup always is.  I spent my free time last summer learning how to…

Paleo Chocolate Truffles (Schweddy Balls)

It’s Christmas time and you know what that means!  Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate!  Advent calendars full of that plastic chocolate, gift boxes of turtles (ooh, paleo turtles… I need to look into slash make some), etc.  But some home-made Paleo Chocolate Truffles, I think that’s where it’s at!

Mashed Yam Omelette

Another one of my leftover gourmet breakfasts:  Mashed Yam Omelettes.  I loved the yams, and this was a great way to continue enjoying them the next day.  I love trying new combinations in omelettes: going to friends’ places and finding mystery ingredients in their kitchens, finding something different in the store, or figuring out what to create with…

Peach Chili Chicken Wings

I was in a long relationship  The better part of my 20’s (maybe not the best part of my 20’s, but most of it?) were spent playing “marriage” with a man who LOVED sports.  Loved.  Loved loved.  Loved maybe even more than he loved me.  Like now, I’m long gone, but he is probably still…

Paleo Baked Apple

Holy smokes: it is winter!  Well… it’s still fall but it feels like winter.  I live in Canada and there is some mis-information as to what the weather is like up here.  I live on the west coast, and fairly south- about an hour’s drive north of Washington state. Approximately 3 1/2 hours drive east…
