Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins from TGIPaleo

(Without peanut butter, obviously!) So this recipe came up on my feed the other day and seeing as I seem to have a stock of coconut flour in my cupboard, lovely smuggled in from the UK recently, I thought I’d give them a go. I started cooking, with the intention of following the recipe to the T. But that never happens. I realised, quite quickly, that I had no applesauce. I quickly peeled and chopped two apples and cooked them...

Apple Cinnamon Scones from Civilized Caveman Cooking

I’ve had this recipe up on my screen for a few days now. But the problem was, I had no apples; I ate them all. I know, right? Me, eating apples. It’s unheard of! But I dehydrated about 3 apples with some cinnamon in my lovely dehydrator and promptly ate the entire batch. I suppose there are worse things to pig out on… but still. My eating 3 apples in a day – unheard of! So I got some more apples at the...

Slow Cooker Chicken Mole from Rubies and Radishes

This recipe popped up on my feed via Our Life in Food but originally hails from Rubies and Radishes. It was one of those recipes that as it scrolls past, I realised that I have every ingredient in the house and no need to make a special trip to the supermarket for. I love those. I actually followed the recipe more or less exactly. (This is a rarity for me!) I’d add a bit more chili next time, because this was really mild due to...

Triple Hamburger Meatloaf from PaleoPot

In an effort to simplify meals for the week, I’ve taken to cooking a Big Batch Of Something on a sunday and then dividing it up for servings during the week. I did spicy mince one week, then chilli, then meat sauce. They lend themselves to either eating simply, or adding stuff to make a completely different meal. I like that. This week I decided to do a meatloaf and PaleoPot posted a recipe for a Triple Hamburger/Cheeseburger...

Chocolate Cinnamon Truffles from Civilized Caveman Cooking

The 8 dates that I had left from a previous recipe were just staring at me. What was I going to make with 8 dates? That didn’t involve wrapping them in bacon – which I have to admit, I was tempted to do…. I also read the other day that cacao powder is good for you! Obviously, that doesn’t give me license to eat chocolate bars or anything, but I haven’t really had much cacao powder in a while except what I...

Magic Brownie Bars from PaleOMG

Sometimes I spy a recipe online that I think, wow – I need to try that. But then the next time I go to the supermarket, I forget to get the right ingredients and end up making something else. Or I do get the right ingredients and then forget where I saw the recipe. Sometimes, I forget what I intended to make altogether. Seriously. But the recipe for Magic Brownie Bars from PaleOMG came up on my Facebook feed and it looked so...

Thanksgiving Stuffing Meatballs from Practical Paleo (mostly)

I sorta think of Thanksgiving as a trial-run for Christmas. All the lovely recipes start appearing in my Facebook and RSS feeds and it gives me a six week headstart on Christmas dinner planning because we don’t actually celebrate Thanksgiving here, obviously. But this year I’m not in charge of dinner at Christmas. So I just have to make the scrumptious sounding recipes as and when! I love my Practical Paleo cookbook. It is...

Wellness Punks’ Coconut Blueberry Crumb Muffins

Now that my Whole30 is over, I can do some baking. When Coconut Blueberry Crumb Muffins by Wellness Punks was featured on FastPaleo’s recipe of the day, I knew exactly what do to with the blueberries I found at the supermarket. Holy crap these were tasty. Maybe it’s because they are the first thing I’ve baked since September, but they are totally lush. I think my oven is a bit crap, so I should have cooked them...

Weeknight Paleo Book Review and Giveaway!

  First off, I’m a cookbook addict. There. I said it. I absolutely, positively adore cookbooks.

Be sure to get to the bottom of this post for details on how to enter. But also, in direct contradiction to that, I...

Cookie Dough Brownies from TGIPaleo

My Cookie Dough Brownies don’t look quite like the picture from TGIPaleo. This was ’cause my chocolate chips were actually a bit of dark chocolate all broken up in the food processor that I nicked from my dad’s place. And it sorta melted and turned the ‘cookie dough’ into, well, chocolate cookie dough – rather than chocolate chip. But it was good. I gave a li’l spoonful of it to Steve before...
