All Natural All Purpose Cleaner

This cleaner is so simple to mix up and so inexpensive in its ingredients. It’s customizable to your needs and works better than almost any other cleaner. I say almost because bleach clearly kills everything in its path…. except mold roots. But I didn’t want to add to the long list of What Bleach Kills……

Baby Food for Picky Eaters

Jeanette, my first born was so eager to start baby food. She loved all combinations. She’d even eat PLAIN (not vanilla people PLAIN!!) greek yogurt. I remember I started her on ONLY vegetable combinations. Limited potatoes, no fruit. Why? Well I had this pure little human that I carried for 9 months and by golly,…

Cowgirl Ranch Dressing (Paleo)

I am a ranch kind of girl. Hidden Valley, if you must know. When we decided to simplify the ingredients we were taking in, things like soy bean oil and all the preservatives in most salad dressings make them a no-no. Since giving up ranch, I just pretty much make vinaigrettes and “make it through”…

Fried “Rice” (Paleo)

  I am a huge fan of Chinese food. According to most Chinese people I have encountered, it’s not Chinese at all what we eat here in America. I am fine with this. Let me love me some fried rice in peace! Anywho, has anyone noticed the wild outburst of cauliflower recipes lately? I mean…

Healthy All-Purpose Soap

    Here is my video¬†for homemade bath soap and a cute idea for keeping it fun for the kids. Hope you enjoy!  

Paleo Sandwhich Bread

I can not convey how excited I am about this bread. As a baker, as an all around bread lover, I’ve missed bread. But! Now, within my very pantry are all the ingredients to make this delicious treat any time I so please. Isn’t it beautiful?? It has a golden crust and a texture that…

Berry Butter Recipe

This Blueberry Butter is so versatile, you literally could take a cup of any fruit and make this. I used organic butter, but there are also margarins out there that are made from olive oil that I may use in the future. The bread recipe I used is 100% paleo and 100% a miracle of…

Healthier Yogurt Covered “Gummies”

My daughter LOVES her multivitamin gummies. Every morning as she wipes sleep out of her eyes she asks for 2 things. Milk and gummies. These are about as far down the gummy rabbit hole as we have allowed though. Most gummies are very sugary and mostly made with too many questionable ingredients. Purer is key…

Maple Walnut Bacon Strips (Paleo)

These guys are almost too good for words. I made these as brunch, but you can bet I will be bagging some to take as protein snacks, making breakfast for dinner just so I can eat them, etc… The bonus: They’re so ridiculously easy, a caveman could make them……that’s just a little Paleo humor for…

Pork Apple Sweet Potato Skillet (Paleo)

I bought some amazing pork chops from Costco the other day and decided to give this one pan meal a whirl. It was yummo, I hope you’ll try it, it really is easy and is made entirely in one pan. So easy right? Pork Apple Sweet Potato Skillet Ingredients: 2 thick pork chops 6 strips…

Kara’s Crack-Shot Chicken (Paleo)

When we have people to our house, there are a couple of go-to meals that I like to make to make a good “first food impression.” Since I am usually not sure if I have picky eaters on my hands or not, I usually go for something universally acceptable like chicken. Ah chicken, you are…

Easy Like Saturday Morning (Steak Scrambler)

I love Saturday cooking. Our family usually gets up early (because I have two lovely alarm clocks who want milk and me out of bed first thing….sigh), but we take our time drinking coffee and don’t really eat until around 9 or 10. Because of this, we generally only do about 2 meals and light…
