Nourishing Hot Eggnog

Posted by on Dec 19, 2015 in primal, recipes | 2 Comments

Hot eggnog is one of my favourite drinks this winter. With a full farm egg and a serving of gelatin in your cup it’s more than a drink, it’s a liquid snack. So tell that chemical filled grocery store nonsense to move on over and give this recipe a try, you’ll never go back. I […]

2014? Bring it.

We started The 21 Day Sugar Detox today.  Craig and I, no one wants to detox toddlers, right?  They’re cranky enough?  Anyway, that’s who the cheddar bunnies are for.  So the detox, it’s three weeks without sweets, fruit (we are allowed a green tipped banana or -/and?  I need to look that up- a green […]

Homemade Mayonnaise

Posted by on May 8, 2013 in paleo, primal, recipes | One Comment

I always thought making my own mayonnaise would be tricky.  I made my own butter, ice cream, ricotta, bread, and all sorts of things before attempting mayo.  And you know what?  It’s dead easy.  For real, I think it takes about 5 minutes and uses ingredient I have on hand all the time.  The biggest […]

Homemade Eat-More Bars

We went on a spontaneous trip to visit my mom yesterday.  Craig wanted to drive to Cranbrook to see if he could find the tufted duck that had been spotted there (very rare.  Running after rare birds is called twitching.  I’m not kidding.  See, you even learn British birder slang on this blog, I’m so educational!), and […]

Apple and Sage Sausages

These little sausage patties are currently my favourite thing to do with ground pork.  I had quite a bit in the freezer after buying a pig off my brother last fall, but sadly the stash is nearly gone.  Only to be used for really delicious things.  Only to be used for apple and sage sausages! […]

Quick Roasted Chicken with Lemon and Rosemary

Posted by on Mar 13, 2013 in dinner, paleo, primal, recipes, supper | No Comments

Once upon a time, I only cooked with chicken breasts.  I never bought thighs, I wasn’t a fan of drumsticks, and the thought of dealing with an entire bird was just overwhelming.  Besides, two people didn’t need an entire chicken, right?  My freezer would have a big box of chicken breasts because I was convinced […]

Grain-Free Chocolate Birthday Cake

Sunny turned one on Sunday and we had birthday cake for her on Monday.  I’ve been working on this grain-free chocolate cake recipe, and I love how it turned out.  It’s incredibly moist and very chocolately.  Not too sweet, especially with the raspberry whipped cream and mascarpone frosting. The cake is made with coconut flour […]

Carrot Latkes with Feta and Dill

I love soup.  We eat it nearly every day for lunch when it’s cold outside.  I used to make biscuits or sandwiches to round out the meal but since we cut out grains they are a treat, not an everyday thing.  I posted last week about my tuna melt patties, which I love for vegetable heavy soups, […]

Tuna Melt Patties

Posted by on Jan 23, 2013 in lunch, paleo, primal, recipes, tuna | No Comments

Since we’ve started eating mostly paleo/primal we don’t have bread in the house.  I thought I would miss bread (I mean, I love it!), but I don’t really.  No sitting around pining for bread.  I do, however,  love soup.  Soup on it’s own is kinda unfulfulling to me, but sandwiches and biscuits are out.  I […]
