Hey y’all! Hope you are having an awesome summer. We sure are. I always think summer will be time for us to sit back and relax, but I swear we are busier than ever with activities. Today the fam and I went paddle boarding at the lake. So much fun!
We are starting to hit the 100 degree temperature here in Dallas. So I probably won’t be doing much grilling, but I will be making cool treats like these Chocolate Watermelon Popsicles!
Oh my gosh these Chocolate and Coconut Granola Bites are absolutely delish!!! They are super easy to make and you can easily switch the ingredients to fit your dietary needs. Why on earth haven’t I made these before?
A few months ago I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of The Paleo Kitchen written by George Bryant and Juli Bauer. I was so excited to get in my tiny apartment kitchen and try out these amazing recipes! I have made many of their recipes in the past so I new it was going to be an awesome cookbook. Well then life got in the way, we bought a house and needed to move quickly. So this gorgeous cookbook was packed away. I finally got the house unpacked and was so excited when I finally found this treasure packed away in a box.
The Paleo Kitchen starts with tips on getting started on the paleo diet, then transitions into a list of seasonal list of fruits and veggies which certainly helps keeping the grocery budget in check. Then they move onto panty essentials and kitchen tools to make your life easier in the kitchen. They also discuss how to cook smarter and proper food storage. I think this is great resource for the beginner cook who may be completely overwhelmed and not sure where to start.
Now onto the recipes! I’m not sure where to start! Everything looks and sounds amaaaazing. My first recipe was the Cinnamon Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread.
Hey there! I am keeping this post short and sweet as I get through this week of craziness! I started a new job, working on some side work, and packing to move this week… Phew! I am super excited and so thankful for all of these opportunities!
So onto these delicious mini muffins. I made these on Sunday as a quick grabby snack or breakfast for the week. They are grain free and very easy to make with minimal ingredients. Just make sure you store them in an air tight container or they will be hard as a rock. Have a great week all!
Peanut butter cups are hands down my favorite treat! And all I see right now are those little darn peanut butter eggs everywhere. It takes all I have not to buy a bag and gobble them up! So I decided to make my own this Easter.
I had bloggers block this week. That doesn’t happen too often, but I just couldn’t figure out what I wanted to make for all of you lovely people. So I asked my assistant, my 6 year old, for her input and she immediately said, “How about lemon bars?”. Well that sounded absolutely perfect to me!
As many of you know I am not a dessert maker, however I am a dessert eater! So when I stumbled across this Paleo Vanilla Cupcake recipe from Elana’s Pantry I knew I had to give it a try.
Since Valentine’s Day is this week I thought I would make a yummy treat.
