Chilli Billy (Paleo)

Chilli is one of my favorite winter/cool weather foods. When I realized I didn’t have to give up prize-worthy chilli to be healthy, I was extatic. This has become my favorite chilli flavor, if the president ever visits my house, I will not likely be serving chilli, but I’d be proud to put this in…

Sunday Snacks and Pecan Sandies Recipe

One of life’s simple delights is preparing my family snacks for after evening church service. It isn’t hard to put together a tray or two that are as healthy as they are pretty, and to my babies that’s as good as it gets! On this cheese tray I toasted some almonds and walnuts, laid out…

Saturday Night Sunday Prep

On Saturday nights I usually dedicate about an hour to some much needed Sunday prep.  We live 30 minutes away from our church that starts at 9:30 a.m. and I still like a home cooked meal on this day. For one thing I don’t have to wait for a seat in a restaurant and risk…

Buffalo Whole Chicken (Paleo)

I came up with this recipe in our tiny apartment when we first got married. Wings are great for a party or special occasion, but they aren’t very practical for during a busy week day. This combines Greek yogurt (or sour cream or coconut cream), and tobasco for a creamy spicy kick.  If you cannot…

Ranch Dressing (non-dairy, Paleo)

Store bought ranch dressing is a buy I made for years as sort of a guilty pleasure. It’s just so good, but with soybean oil and preservatives, it literally almost never goes bad and is VERY bad for your body.  So in an effort to keep ranch in my life without the junk, I picked…

Bumblebee Brownies

For some reason I found it a challenge to convey the yumminess of this brownie in the form of a picture. The Brownie is a gooey traditionally dark chocolate brownie taste and the cream is sweetened with honey and vanilla and butter. Farmhouse is a popular word these days, how much more farmhouse do you…

Garden Veggie Sauce (dairy free, Paleo)

Spring is in the air and I can’t stop thinking of all the beautiful vegetables that come into season when it starts getting warm outside. I love them steamed, roasted, blanched, fresh, sauteed, but every now and again, you just need a flavor to add a little dimension to the same-old same-old. We usually buy…

Manloaf (low-carb, Paleo, delicious)

This meatloaf is a poser. It tastes like beef, but is all lean turkey. I find meatloaf is a great dish to hide extra nutrients inside. You can chop almost any vegetable, hide it in this recipe and not only does that make this a healthy recipe, it also makes it stretch further, therefore cheaper….

Easy Upcycled Curtain Skirt

I have been doing a little spring cleaning and found these curtains that we used in Jeanette’s baby room. Every now and again I get a Snow White streak and I feel like baking. I picture that I am Doris Day and sing, bake, sew or crochet. It is totally my element. I’ve heard of…

Perfectly Pink Paleo Pancakes

I love when I find a shortcut and I can make a mix taste like a homemade extraordinary meal. This mix I found at Sprouts is Paleo, and I’ll show you a few simple tricks I did to make these pancakes special. Instead of water I used milk, I added 3 drops red food coloring…
