Husband-Approved Cole Slaw

My husband is pretty picky when it comes to cole slaw. He doesn’t like it when it’s too acidic, or when there’s “weird stuff” in it, and pretty much only likes the cole slaw from Kentucky Fried Chicken. But who knows what’s actually in their cole slaw? (I admit, I like it too… but fast

Primal Party Foods – 4 of 5

At first, when I was dabbling in the primal way of eating (grain free, whole, natural, unprocessed foods) I tried to get rid of our un-primal pantry staples by bringing them to parties. Fiesta night?
