Key Lime Pie

Dessert is my favorite food group

A few girlfriends and I had a fabulous time last weekend having a little “backyard BBQ” themed potluck.  With everyone bringing yummy veggie kabobs, creating hummus patties, and tossing together luscious salads galore, I figured I would go ahead and bring a dessert.  Enter paleo key lime pie.  My friend Danielle had actually made this […]

Pulled Pork

After - ready to devour

Crockpots are pretty much the perfect solution for those of you who love that “I’m too busy to clean up my diet” excuse.  Tossing stuff in the crockpot, leaving it, and coming home to a warm, ready paleo meal at night – you really can’t beat that.  Pork tenderloins were on sale at Trader Joe’s this […]

Watermelon Lime Popsicles

1 Step Recipes = best ever

Summer is definitely here, and as June gloom fades away, it’s time to bring in all the fun things that summer has to offer – dinners outside on warm nights, 4th of July craziness, beach days, vacations and of COURSE – popsicles! Popsicles are fun no matter what your age (if you disagree, you must […]

Garlic Artichoke Baked Chicken

yes please

By now you’ve probably noticed a few ingredients that I tend to use a LOT of throughout my recipes, one of those being garlic.  Typically I’ll double the amount of garlic a recipe calls for just to make sure F and I get our fix.  This recipe is another easy one, and an especially great […]

Sweet Potato Chips and Spicy Garlic Avocado Dip

Gotta love an appetizer

Typically I post dinner recipes on here, with a few dessert and breakfast tidbits thrown in.  However, I really have a passion in life for the appetizers.  Honestly, sometimes I prefer JUST a mix of appetizers rather than a full blown dinner.  This past Saturday evening, F and I had a little more time to enjoy […]

Stuffed Peppers

One of the many things that I was pretty excited about that came in my CSA on Tuesday was a bag of five gorgeous, white sweet peppers.  Immediately when I saw them, visions of stuffed peppers started dancing in my head.  However, it has been such a crazy week, that I didn’t really get to […]

Joining a CSA – “Farm Fresh to You”

It's like Christmas every Tuesday!

Joining a CSA (community supported agriculture) is something that I’ve been thinking about for quite some time — see my past post where I was weighing the pro’s and con’s here.  After wandering around Fiesta Hermosa a few weeks ago on a Saturday morning with my roommate (sober…one of the few!), collecting Luna Bar samples […]

Chicken Sandwich (No really…)

new spin on sandwich!

Believe it or not, that little piece of heaven you see above took me less than 15 minutes to create.  As many of you know, Forrest and I just got a little puppy named Captain (pic at the end of the post), so when I got home last night I was trying to keep my […]
