St. Patrick’s Day Deliciousness!

Cead mile failte!  It’s no secret that I love St. Patrick’s day.  Any excuse to wear green, the perfect compliment to my Irish red hair, right? 😉  But what I also love is the food!  St. Patrick’s Day staples in our home include: Irish Soda Bread , which I usually make two loaves of; one the more […]

Sweet and Savory Breakfast Hash

Some days you wake up and just know that you’re hungry for something high-powered but egg free.  Some days you really, really desire something that is both sweet and savory. And some days you know you’ll need to make a lot all at once to make your efforts worthwhile (and to ensure delicious leftovers!!).  For […]

Lightly Salted, Cinnamon Broiled Grapefruit

Sometimes my most difficult struggle with keeping this page up to date with fresh ideas isn’t in what I am eating, it’s realizing the value behind the simple things we do eat. Over the last couple of months I have been running a Facebook group dedicated to healthy, whole-food eating.  Over there I am sharing […]

How to Render Beef Tallow in Your Slow Cooker (and why you would want to)

  First, some of you may be asking, “what is beef tallow?” To put it simply, beef tallow is rendered beef fat.

AIP Basil Pesto (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free)

There are few things more delectable than a rich, savory, creamy sauce like pesto. That is, unless you are allergic to some of the most vital ingredients normally found in this simple sauce. While my family often enjoys my Vegan Pesto with Kale, recently a friend asked me if I had ever attempted to make […]

What We Eat: Mexican Coleslaw with Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette

There is just something about the combination of cilantro and lime that makes me happy. My cilantro-lime ranch vegetable dip is made and enjoyed weekly in our home. I love the combination of cilantro and lime in cauliflower rice, on my paleo tacos and more… So when I had several heads of cabbage needing to […]

What We Eat: Teriyaki Beef Kabobs (Paleo, Whole30)

Last week I shared how I managed to stretch a meal originally planned for 4 to be enough for 8 people…this week, the concept is similar. Fruits and vegetables can make a meal stretch. Use these instead of grains and you’ve got a paleo plan you can afford to stick with. Because we purchase our […]

What We Eat: Roasted Kielbasa and Roasted Vegetable Packet Dinner

Sometimes I get in a blogging rut. I mean, I love sharing with you and I love getting to know all of you…but sometimes I find myself without any recipes because, well, what we eat doesn’t always need a recipe! I guess that happens when you move over to clean eating. Really, once you get […]

Confessions of a busy mom (and one really great dairy-free buttercream frosting recipe)

  I have a confession. Something that has sat on my shoulders for some time. No matter how much I want to, no matter how hard I try… I cannot always make things from scratch. I mean, I really want to be that mom that has her business, writes her blog (or two), is at […]

Nutbutter Bars (Paleo Friendly, Nut-Free Option Listed)

With Easter around the corner, my family is preparing for the biggest celebration yet. With that comes the desire to provide somewhat ‘normal’ treats without having to break the bank to provide safe treats for everyone and without having to unnecessarily risk harmful exposure to allergens. Recently, I came across a picture of some tantalizing […]
