Bacon-Wrapped Lemon Pepper Grilled Chicken with Paleo “couscous”

Bacon-Wrapped Lemon Pepper Grilled Chicken with Paleo “couscous”

Mar 06

(Image via Cierra Harmon’s Pinterest board) This is not a foodie blog, and yet this is the second post in a row inspired by my new Paleo persuasion. But when your husband greets you at the door when you’re still sweaty from a tempo run and shoves a massive bite of freshly cooked Paleo goodness into your mouth and THEN takes a picture of said goodness and sends it to his mother, I...

The Caveman Comeback

The Caveman Comeback

Feb 28

Paleo. It sounds like something you might name an Albino Pekingese. Nevertheless, it is a “new” diet that is all the rage among health nuts. Ironically, the Paleolithic nutrition plan is anything but new as it dates back to the Stone Age– the “hunter-gatherer” style of consumption consisting of fish, meat, vegetables, fruits and nuts. I like to refer to it as the...

Christmas Crack

Christmas Crack

Image via Plain Chicken Oh my! Have you tried it yet?! One Pinterest-er described it as Christmas Crack and all I have to say is this treat is so high-calorie, you may want to consider giving it to people you don’t like. We made some today and it is completely gift-able albeit addicting. A word to the wise… make sure you de-kernel the popcorn before you coat with the peppermint...

My little┬áraw foods lover… And who knew that an apple slicer would cut my potato chopping time in half. It would also cut the tip of my thumb, but no good...

“Special” Gluten-Free Banana Bread

“Special” Gluten-Free Banana Bread

Nov 16

Are you gluten-free? It seems that most people who are gluten-free are particularly passionate about their grain substitutes. I was strictly gluten-free when I was trying to get pregnant with Salem. Back then (all of four years ago), you practically had to have a downtown, cash-only connection to find anything that was gluten-free, and it always tasted like cardboard. Now, you can find...

Nutell-uva Good Cupcakes

Nutell-uva Good Cupcakes

Jan 12

It’s been a refreshingly off-beat sort of day. First, I went fishing for Laura Bush’s book at our local used book shop. No luck. So instead, I raided the next door market for some nutella cupcake ingredients along with some essentials to make a simple French picnic. I then proceeded to have the most delectable afternoon with my kiddos and my bestie. {Oh and our little piquenique may...
