Paleo French Bread

Paleo french Bread

There is a well known fact amongst Portlanders and  that is  “Summer doesn’t start until July 4th” and I  am ready. I am ready for seeing the sun fill up the sky with it happy light. I am ready for the doves that beat box in the large cedar tree near my office window (have you ever noticed […]

Cinnamon Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread + The Paleo Kitchen


I am a sucker for a good banana bread recipe and when I had the chance to make this  Paleo Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread recipe from Juli Bauer, from PaleOMG, and George Byrant’s, from Civilized Caveman Cooking, new cookbook The Paleo Kitchen, I said, “Heck Yeah!” And ya’ll it’s as good as it looks.  Mine […]

Orange Scones

Last week I got a cold and, as usual, my taste buds went into hibernation.   It wasn’t until Sunday that I finally felt confidant that anything I created in my kitchen wouldn’t be some strange disaster of salt and too many eggs.     I went into my kitchen and stared at my pantry […]

Paleo Hamburger Buns recipe

When I was a kid, my mother would often make us the special treat of peanut butter sandwiches on white hamburger buns.  Oh mama, I can still remember the sticky sweet taste and, of course, washing it down with a large glass of ice cold milk.  Now, it makes sense my mother would turn us […]

Paleo Wraps

I finally broke down and realized that you need eggs to make Paleo wraps.  The thing is, I really hate using a lot of eggs in my recipes.  One, we already go through 2 dozen eggs a week, not including my baking.  Two, I hate eggy tasting foods. After working on this for a month, I […]
