Post Production Edit: What in the world? I released this without a prelude? I must be a slacker when I’m sick. Or just very forgetful. I stared at this for the longest time when it went live, trying to figure out what was missing. Hours later…cue lightbulb moment…AH HA! At any rate, the Dorky Missus hasContinue Reading

Paleo Scotch Eggs

Paleo Scotch Eggs

When the Hubster and I were dating, around Saint Patrick’s day, we discovered that there was a genuine Irish pub in a town close by, run by immigrants from Ireland and their family. As somebody with Irish heritage, I was quite excited by this development! I would taste genuine Irish food (or as close toContinue Reading

Stuffed Cubanelle Peppers with a Kick served over top of Chipotle Mushrooms with Green Beans

It’s Valentine’s Day! I’m bucking the trend of food bloggers everywhere and posting a recipe that is decidedly un-Valentines-like. The reasoning is, what most people want their significant others to have is a long and healthy life. So instead of chocolate-y, fattening, indulgent ingredients that may or may not contain hidden additives, I’m providing health-mindedContinue Reading

Neither one of us has a routine lunch schedule; we simply eat when there’s an opening for us to. A few weeks back, I made the Hubster a delicious, no-bake breakfast bar that couldContinue Reading

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

“Cool Robbie” Soup

“Cool Robbie” Soup

The Hubster and I went to visit his mama this past weekend. We brought her something paleo-friendly to eat for dinner, which she thought was different, but she liked it. (She also knows that her daughter-in-law can cook and keep her baby fed.) She marveled over how much weight my Dorky Hubby has lost, andContinue Reading
