Happy Thursday! I had the best time at an event I attended last night. We have a  group of women in town that meet every so often called Girls in Tech (or is it women?) They throw little mixers or structured informative events. This was the latter,  so  it was so cool to not only […]



Paleo Flax and Raisin Breakfast Bread

I have a hard time motivating myself to do a lot of Paleo baking. I know I mention this every blue moon when I actually bake something, but it’s something I really want to improve for 2013. Yes, I’m already thinking of my New Year’s resolutions. Next year promises to be a big one and […]



Paleo Sweet Potato Stew

Paleo + sweet potatoes. Next to bacon, I don’t know if there is a more popular association — which is unfortunate, because we don’t actually eat that much bacon — a post for another day. The inspiration behind this stew is a cup of sweet potato stew I was surprised by last Friday while eating […]



Dinner Last Night: Paleo Sticky Baked Chicken

This weekend = amazing. A perfectly unplugged three-days with my brothers and Neil’s parents at the annual Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival. I can’t believe this was our fourth year attending! I think that’s long enough to call this a tradition right? This year, we challenged ourselves by signing up for the festival 10k […]



Paleo Sweet and Sour Chicken

After our Cashew Chicken treat this past weekend, we’ve been on a bit of an Asian kick. I love coming up with ways to Paleo-ify (is that a word?) our take-out favorites. So often they are overly breaded, fried and salt and sugar-laden, so it’s fun to come up with ways to achieve the flavor […]



Paleo Thai Pork with Almond Sauce

Ah, how is it already Friday!? I feel like this week went so fast! Maybe it’s because we’re fresh off a vacation? We need more of those if that’s the case. We’ve suffered from major kitchen avoidance this week. With triple-digit temperatures nearly all week (Wednesday was nearly being 107 degrees!), it feels impossible to […]



Simple Paleo Veggie Quiche

I’m pretty proud of us, we got a lot done this weekend. However, none of it was blog-worthy. That’s not to say it wasn’t interesting, it was just a lot of paper-pushing and computer work. I’m concurrently working on my first two projects for work, and the hot weather and inability to do nearly anything […]



Weeknight NOM

Dinner last night was NOM NOM Paleo’s Damn Fine Chicken and Sautéed Spinach with Warm Bacon Dressing. So good I ran outside as it was getting dark and snapped a few photos. My neighbors probably think we’re nuts. I don’t care, warm salad is definitely my new favorite side dish. It’s so easy too. Cook […]



Paleo Cinnamon “Oatmeal” Raisin Cookies

Cookies! If you hadn’t noticed, we’ve been in a bit of a baking drought since going Paleo. Initially it was because we chose to abstain from treats to better acclimate to being newly grain free. I also quickly found that Paleo baking had a learning curve that I didn’t have time for while finishing grad school. […]



Paleo Beef & Bacon Chili

I feel like the differences in mine and Neil’s taste emerge in our chili choices. While I prefer more veggies and hints of coffee or chocolate (Mocha Tofu Chili anyone?), he prefers meat and heat. So this past weekend, when he was craving a “red-hot meaty chili”, he went down to the kitchen at 11 […]
