Pad Thai (GF & Refined Sugar-Free)

Living in Northwestern Minnesota has its perks. Every morning I get to wake up and drink coffee on my porch with Blue, then go for a walk and listen as loons fly over and call to each other. I don’t have a commute, we spend lots of time outside, I love our home and our…

Paleo Zucchini Blueberry Muffins

It’s zucchini season! Sadly, we do not have any zucchinis growing in our garden, but Matt brought one home from work the other day that was bigger than my arm. He is not a zucchini lover like I am, but he is a huge fan of zucchini bread. Riddle me that. There are so many…

Perfect Brownies (Paleo & Nut-Free)

Happy Hump Day! Chicago has been soaked with a steady, relentless drizzle for a few days now, and I feel like I’m in a perpetual state of needing a nap. Maybe you didn’t know this, but brownies fix everything. I shared my recipe for Pumpkin Brownies¬†back in October and they are a hit with my…

Shrimp & Cauliflower “Grits” (Paleo)

Happy weekend! The sun is out and the weather is ever so slowly creeping up to an acceptable Spring temperature, just in time for Easter Sunday. It’s been a while since I last shared a recipe- Matt and I have been busy finding and buying our first home! It’s been a very exciting and emotionally…

Purple Rice Pudding (GF & Dairy-Free)
