This week, I’m introducing MmmMonday! Each week, I’m going to try a recipe from one of my cookbooks, let you know how it goes, and give a quick review of the book. You can join in too by linking up with something awesome you cooked this week! The first book I’m reviewing is Tammy Credicott’s

I had heard somewhere about eating more coconut oil in order to raise the fat content of your breastmilk, so I thought I would try it out. That was a couple of days ago, and the fudge I made has been really delicious, but I’ve read some more stuff since then… basically saying raising the

Fettuccine schmettuccine. Who needs pasta? Not me! Even before I “found Primal” over 3 years ago, when I was a HARDCORE PASTA LOVER, something funny happened. I’d make a “pasta thing” which would have noodles of some sort, sauce, veggies, and sometimes a meat. Then I’d try to get more of the “good stuff” (i.e.,

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. I really think this would be great for pork or chicken too, if you’d prefer. Print Tuna Steaks with Pepper-Olives Medley Author: Joyful Abode Recipe type: Dinner,

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

I recently tried out an idea I had had floating around in my head for a LONG time… a way to make homemade potato chips in the style of Baked Lay’s or Pringles. With the help of my awesome immersion blender and my amazing dehydrator with the non-stick sheets, I did it. And it worked

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
