Real Life Paleo & Pumpkin Cider Latte


As you may know I’m currently busy working on a book project along with some of my other Paleo/Primal blogger friends so I’ve been busy cooking, photographing and editing recipes for the book, but I had to take a break today and share this post with you about ‘The Real Life Paleo Cookbook’  from Stacy Toth and Matthew McCarry the awesome couple behind the blog Paleo Parents (in case you didn’t know!).  I was recently sent a copy of this awesome book to review and as I do with all books I receive for review, I sat down to read it and take a good look over it before I formed any opinions on what I thought about it.

Roasted Stuffed Delicata Squash


I’m finally getting around to share a new recipe with you all! I’ve been flat out working on the upcoming cookbook I shared about recently  and let me tell you it is pretty much taking up most of my days.

Today though I thought I’d take a little break from all of that and sit down to share this recipe for ‘Roasted Stuffed Delicata Squash’ with you. [Read more…]

Oven-Roasted Parsnip Fries with Ras el Hanout


You know what I think is one of the keys to a successful REAL food kitchen? Spices! Yes spices. You want to know why? It’s because I think once you get the hang of using spices and allow yourself to experiment with them, even if those experiments don’t always turn out, you will eventually get to a place where you can literally create thousands of recipes just by using different spices in your food. There was a time in my cooking life where the only spices I was using were salt and pepper and I was so unsure of how to use the myriad of spices out there, but one day I decided to just go for it and went out and bought a bunch of spices and started to experiment with them in various ways. Nowadays I love having a well-stocked spice collection because it means I get to create deliciously tasty dishes like these ‘Oven-Roasted Parsnip Fries with Ras el Hanout’. [Read more…]
