RECIPIES Chocolate Lava Cake January 11, 2019

In need of a fast dessert idea for your special someone soon?  These lava cakes are something to give a try.  You don’t need many ingredients, and it takes a total of 20 min from start to finish.  My suggestion is to cook them while you’re eating dinner so they’re still nice and warm/hot, when...

PALEO, RECIPIES, WHOLE30 Whole30 Hawaiian Chicken January 4, 2019

We went to Hawaii on our honeymoon way back in 2012 and loved every minute of it.  The sun, the beach, the flowers, the food.  Anytime I can manifest that vacation in my “normal” life, I’m going to try.  While this isn’t a perfect replica of sun and beach, it’s good enough for me, for...

PALEO, RECIPIES, WHOLE30 Whole30 Mango Salsa January 2, 2019

We aren’t huge fish eaters in our house, or at least not huge fish cookers.  I don’t like using my stove for stinky, messy cooking, and fish typically fits into both of those categories.  However, sometimes I’ll make an exception for something really tasty.  Last night we had mahi mahi with this mango salsa on...

PALEO, RECIPIES, WHOLE30 Whole30 Plantain Nachos January 1, 2019

I’m not sure about you, but we love nachos.  A gigantic pile of chips, meat, cheese and toppings always can hit the spot.  Unfortunately, if you’re trying to rest your system, nachos aren’t really the cleanest choice.  Here’s where plantain nachos come in handy.  They’re clean and delicious.  The sweet from the plantains really adds...

RECIPIES Jojo’s Biscuits December 31, 2018

I’ve always loved a fresh, warm biscuit in the morning for breakfast.  However the idea of the effort that would be needed, was more than I was interested in doing at 4:30 a.m.  The good news, is Joanna Gaines has simplified a buttermilk biscuit recipe that is so delicious, it’s hard to eat just one....

PALEO, RECIPIES, WHOLE30 Whole30 Watermelon Salad December 29, 2018

If you’re in need of a quick snack with some freshness, try this watermelon salad.  It’s a refreshing snack that reminds me of a nice warm day in the middle of winter.  The fat from the e.v.o.o. will help satisfy your tummy, and the zest from the lime will wake up your inner beach vacation...

PALEO, RECIPIES, WHOLE30 Whole30 Mango + Jalapeno Chicken Wings December 22, 2018

These Whole30 chicken wings  are so easy to make and so tasty.  You can use the marinade on wings or chicken breasts, or just as a dipping sauce.  There’s a slight sweetness from the mango, and a little spice from the jalapeño.  These are perfect for any gathering, but they’re especially great for football games!...

RECIPIES My Favorite Things – Chocolate Chocolate Chip Loaf December 21, 2018

Oh my goodness.  These are delicious.  It’s like a cross between a chocolate cake and a loaf of dessert bread.  It’s thick and moist and mmm… mmm good.  They’re nice to slice for a holiday party, or you can give them away as gifts to someone who is a chocolate lover.  I love these, and...

RECIPIES Cranberry Moscow Mule December 20, 2018

I really love the idea of having something specifially “holiday” to drink, during the holidays.  Sure you can enjoy this any time of year, but the festiveness of the red and green together in a delicious drink, is something special this time of year.  This is another light and refreshing drink that you could actually...

PALEO, RECIPIES, WHOLE30 Whole30 Chia Pudding December 19, 2018

This is a new one for me.  I’ve always loved the photographs of chia pudding, but I’ve never actually had any until I wanted to photograph it myself.  While the photo shows a drizzle of maple syrup (paleo friendly) the Whole30 version will omit the syrup.  I found the coconut milk and chia itself fulfilling...
