I really didn’t know what to call this. But it’s delicious. Tuna steaks simply grilled and topped with a colorful veggie-olive medley. We ate it with Grain-Free Baked Zucchini Rounds.

We have several grain-free pancake recipes we turn to when we want a “bready” (but still high-protein) breakfast. These Paleo Banana Nut Waffles can also be made as excellent pancakes. These coconut flour pancakes are also quite tasty, and I have a few variations on them I like to make too. But the last couple

Anneliese’s birthday is at the end of July, and that means Summer is in full-swing and berries are busting out all over (well, here in Central California anyway!) My girl is a huge fan of fruit, so last year when she turned 1, I sought out a grain-free strawberry cake. I ended up making a

A little while back, I found these zucchini tots on Pinterest and thought to myself, “Dang if I don’t like me some zucchini. I bet these are the bee’s knees!” Or something along those lines anyway. Rayna got the idea from Kelsey at The Naptime Chef (here are her Zucchini Bites) and wow. Hers look

There are so many recipes out there for making potato chips. All of them involve thin-slicing the potatoes. Anddddd… I don’t always feel like using my mandoline, and my knife skills are more than a bit lacking. Some include baking in the oven – but the only way to get them super-crispy that way is


On Father’s Day, my husband asked for “something sweet.” And after I looked through lots of recipe books, and asked him “What about this? What about that?” He finally told me, “One of those mug cakes you do in the microwave would work just fine. I didn’t mean anything complicated.” So I made us mug


Warning: These are addictive. They’re easy to make, delicious, and good for you. And you won’t have to pay $4 for a 1.5 ounce baggie. It’s hard to say if they’re crispy or chew. It’s kind of both. You can snap them in half, but when you eat them they’re a little chewy, not like
