Miniature Apple Bread Puddings

Miniature Apple Bread Puddings

Why have I called it “Miniature” instead of “mini”? I don’t know. Just felt like I wanted to use the entire word today. It really rolls off the tongue. Another experiment out of the Practical Paleo book by  Diane Sanfilippo. These little beauties are my contribution to a weekend birthday brunch. They are not very … Continue reading

(Almost) Raw Truffles

(Almost) Raw Truffles

I just recently moved to South Orange County, to a little town called San Clemente. It’s pretty much perfect. I walk everywhere, I do yoga, go for runs by the beach, and make delicious things in the kitchen! Here’s another recipe from Diane’s fabulous book. I saw these and knew that I could whip them … Continue reading

Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Lemon Blueberry Muffins

I just recently bought a new paleo book and it’s absolutely fantastic.   Diane is a fellow graduate of Bauman College (where I got my culinary degree) and she’s also a part of the Weston A. Price Foundation. This appeals to me because not only is she an advocate of paleo eating, but she also understands the … Continue reading

Pesto Gazpacho

Pesto Gazpacho

I’m moving!! Well, not permanently, but I’m still excited because I will be spending my fall/winter months here: This is San Clemente. It’s in Orange County, but it’s probably the least “OC” city in the county. If you don’t know what that means, watch a couple episodes of The OC, Real Housewives of Orange County, … Continue reading

Paleo BBQ sauce

Paleo BBQ sauce

It’s Summer! Which means BBQ’s every weekend. And what do you usually have at a BBQ? BBQ sauce! Usually, this little condiment is loaded with all sorts of processed weirdness (unless your host just happened to have a super secret, centuries old, homemade from scratch-recipe; not likely). Even most BBQ sauce recipes have ingredients like Worcestershire sauce … Continue reading

So, as you know, I’ve been prepping meals for the week during my Mondays. Well, last week I made Rosemary Bacon Sliders and no joke, … Continue reading

The Modern Hunt and Gather

The Modern Hunt and Gather

Cooking is time-consuming. Especially Paleo-cooking. Which is fine when you’re getting paid for it but if you’re not… well, then you’re probably interested in how to use your time in the kitchen efficiently while also getting the benefits (health, financial, and otherwise) of home cooked meals for yourself and your family. Some people hire out … Continue reading

Spanish Tortilla

Spanish Tortilla

This morning I woke up early and went on a little walk to admire a beautiful sky full of puffy clouds! It’s been pretty ridiculously hot here in LA, so I thought going on a walk earlier in the day was probably a pretty wise choice. Hey guess what?! It was my birthday this week! … Continue reading

Easy Ceviche

Easy Ceviche

Ceviche is a great paleo meal. That’s why I now have 3 versions of it on my blog. (see here and here) Yesterday, my man took me out for a little birthday dinner and we had some ceviche at a Spanish tapas restaurant in Pasadena. The ceviche was so good that I wanted it again. … Continue reading

Fresh Fig Tart with Honey Drizzle

Fresh Fig Tart with Honey Drizzle

I love figs. No, I mean… I REALLY SUPER LOVE FIGS! One of the reasons I really super love them is because they (like persimmons, which I also super love) are very seasonal. There’s no way to get around it; you cannot find a good fresh fig in April or December. It’s just not going … Continue reading
