Pecan Crusted Pumpkin Brownie Bars

Let's talk about Thanksgiving. I'm ready to enjoy a day spent with loved ones, and get down on some turkey. Maybe get a Turkey Day WOD in, pre-festivities. I don't host for the big day, but I always try to bring a dish or two to contribute and further spread the paleo love. This year, I wanted … Continue reading Pecan Crusted Pumpkin Brownie Bars


Happiness Is…11.17.13, Thanksgiving & New Recipe

It's been a week of recovery and I'm finally starting to feel like my normal self again! And although I loved making warm, comforting soups, I am SO excited to be reintroducing solid food again. Humans are meant to chomp on their meals, not drink them. Tomorrow, I also end my almost two-week hiatus from … Continue reading Happiness Is…11.17.13, Thanksgiving & New Recipe

Curried Sweet Potato-Apple Soup

I've been in bed for the past 34 hours and let me tell you it's been [mostly] glorious.

If you're enjoying the fall flavors as much as I am, you've … Continue reading Grain-Free Pumpkin ‘Granola’ Crunch with Banana Crème

Sweet Chocolate Puddin’

This isn't a real recipe post. I mean, it is...but it isn't. I didn't spend hours thinking of the ingredients and flavor combinations. This recipe idea didn't smack me in the face while I was drifting off to sleep, and there's probably a million blogs in Paleo blog land that have featured the same dish. … Continue reading Sweet Chocolate Puddin’

Chocolate Dipped Hazelnut Cookie Crisps

There are a lot of things I'm good at when it comes to food. Eating, for example, I'm probably best at that part. As far as cooking goes, stove top dinners and breakfast foods are among my favorite things to make. And most importantly, baking! You're probably already aware my sweet tooth wins all, so … Continue reading Chocolate Dipped Hazelnut Cookie Crisps
