Cranberry Nut Cookies

Paleo Cranberry Nut Cookies

Have you ever seen the show on The Food Network called “Best Thing I Ever Ate?” Well these cookies would make the list of best things I ever made.

Paleo Nut Butter Thumbprints

My grandmother and I used to spend the days before Christmas baking just about ever cookie you can imagine.

Paleo Pointers: The 50 Best Paleo Snacks

Having paleo approved snacks on hand is one of the best pieces of advice I could give to a paleo beginner. Having delicious, healthy snacks within an arms reach will keep you satisfied and keep your hand out of the cookie jar (or the office candy jar). But even the most versed paleo enthusiast can hit…

Paleo Oven Roasted Asparagus

I love cooking, but when I am trying to get dinner ready after a long day at work I opt for quick and easy. Quick and easy doesn’t have to be boring. Too often veggies are steamed in the microwave or left out all together because they appear to be time consuming to prepare. Roasting…
