Crispy Pancetta Chips


There are two truths.  1) I love to watch football.  And, 2) I love to eat junk food while I watch football.  Now, I KNOW I am not alone in those principles.  Who else’s diet goes to complete crap when Fall rolls around and every Sunday is suddenly filled with pitchers of Shocktop, nachos, wings, […]

Chicken Pesto Pizza


I’ve maybe only met one or two people in my entire life that don’t like pizza.  If you don’t like pizza, you are an alien.  Or probably not my friend. Either way, your loss.  Making a paleo pizza is an awesome way to help you through the initial week of trying the Paleo diet – […]

Lunch Time Roll-Up

Simple and tasty...what else can you ask for

So, you may hate me for posting this “recipe” – even calling it a recipe is a stretch. You may be thinking “wow Ashley, you’re a regular Chef Boyardee.” Or maybe you’re thinking just a simple “sweet idea bro.”  I also realize that “Lunch Time Roll Up” sounds like a dance.  Maybe it should be. […]

Curry Chicken Salad

Food rainbow

Lunchtime is probably the biggest pain in the butt meal time for me when it comes to eating Paleo.  I know exactly what I want for breakfast and that’s easy, and I usually put on my Chef Boyardee hat for dinner.  But for lunch, I just want something that is easy (preferably already finished), cold […]

Coconut Shrimp


I am beyond thrilled to be back in a position in life where I am able to start blogging with Paleo Madeline again.  Sharing recipes and inspiring others to cook and have fun with food is something that really fulfills me.  Shifting your lifestyle from always buying ready-made food/eating out to preparing food for yourself […]

Indian Spiced Stew


As fate would have it, I made this recipe on the night last week where the winds were blowing so bad it felt like we were all about to go up Wizard of Oz style.  Those nights are the perfect nights to walk into your house and smell a stew that’s been slow cooking all […]

Snack Attack – Spiced Nuts


One of my personal paleo pitfalls is snacking.  I’ll do great, eating healthy, fresh food for my meals…and then get lured by the chips, dips, candy, etc at work…or the Coffee Bean downstairs that is begging me to eat a rice krispie treat…and BOOM it’s over.  Creating your own paleo snacks ahead of time for […]

Sweet Potato, Apple and Sausage Breakfast Patties

Now would be the appropriate time for me to introduce you guys to my new online best friend/hero/slight love affair, Juli Bauer.  Juli writes PaleOMG which has long been one of my favorite paleo blogs to read.  She’s got an awesome arsenal of recipes that I copy often, and not to mention she’s f-ing hysterical. […]

Bacon Laced Brussel Sprouts

bacon and brussels

I’m all about giving credit where credit is due.  And right now credit is definitely due to one of my best friends and her fiance.  She came up with this bacon brussel sprout goodness and was nice enough to spread the wealth and share it with me.  When she was explaining it to me at […]
