Nut-Free Nutella…What do I call this stuff? Tahsunella? Chocotasu? Who cares, it’s OMGGOOD.

Nut-Free Nutella…What do I call this stuff? Tahsunella? Chocotasu? Who cares, it’s OMGGOOD.

By now, all of the Black Friday shoppers have probably gone home to crash for the day. Or they’re recouping to head back out into the madness. If you’re one of the brave folks out there in that craziness, make sure that you’re drinking plenty of fluids and eating. The last thing anyone wants isContinue Reading

Happy Thanksgiving from the Dorky Missus (2013)

Thanksgiving is finally here, the one day of the year when we have a moment to sit down with our loved ones and reflect on all the wonderful events that have happened to us in the past year. This day of thanks has always been such a humbling holiday for me. I consider just howContinue Reading

Paleo Ketchup

Paleo Ketchup

I’ve been on a bit of a run for making basic ingredients that people keep stocked in their kitchen. Ketchup is one of the ones that I wanted to tackle because it is quite likely the most popular condiment in the United States. People put it on their french fries, scrambled eggs, hamburgers, macaroni andContinue Reading

Citrus Infused Olive Oil

My Brother-in-law got us an amazing bottle of blood orange infused olive oil just in time for my birthday. I was ecstatic to use it as a base vinaigrette for salads! It has just the right amount of citrus undertones and adds a bright zing to our salads. However, this olive oil has been namedContinue Reading

Winter Crockpot Jambalaya

Winter Crockpot Jambalaya

So, the other day, I’m in my car, driving around for work-related adventures. I don’t listen to the radio, and I often have a CD going in the car. I know, a CD and not an iPod…I’m so paleolithic. Har har, see what I did there? I’m such a neanderthal, living in the paleo era.Continue Reading

Ten Most AWESOME Bundt Pans in the History of Ever

Not too long ago, I made a paleo recipe that called for a bundt pan. Not possessing one, I ended up using a muffin pan, which worked just as well. For those of you unfamiliar with bundt cakes and their pans, the term “bundt” doesn’t apply to the cake itself. There’s no special consistency toContinue Reading

Cajun Spice Blend

Just a quick and simple spice recipe for folks who love Cajun style cooking or have a recipe that calls for Cajun seasoning. Tastier than the stuff that you buy at the stores, cheaper, and you know what is going into your mix. Dump all your spices into a bowl, blend, place in a container,Continue Reading

Basic Vinaigrette for Salads

The Hubster and I love our salads, but neither one of us really cares for the heavy salad dressings that are out there. Our favorite thing to do is just to make our own. We add any spices to it that we like. We even change up the plain EVOO with one that has beenContinue Reading

Lemon Pepper Thyme Cast-Iron Roasted Chicken

Lemon Pepper Thyme Cast-Iron Roasted Chicken

I’m finally back in the kitchen, testing out new recipes! I haven’t been feeling good for a while due to persistent migraines, and my priorities have been shuffling about. This means feeding myself well has sort of taken a back burner to work and sleep. The Hubster has been incredibly busy with work and takingContinue Reading

I have a Paleo Cat…Kinda.

Note: I started working on this post on National Cat Day, but haven’t gotten around to finishing it until now. Normally, I’d have a recipe to post, but I haven’t been feeling well for quite a few days. Since the Hubster is at work, and my health is somewhat manageable, I thought that I wouldContinue Reading
