Food and Recipes

I haven’t had much time for recipe creation during the past few months, so I’ve relied heavily on others’ recipes and a few of my trusted old ones. Thought I’d share a few of my favorites:

  • Paleo Chocolate Cupcakes: I added cocoa to the batter to make it chocolatey as well. This icing is delicious. Not strict paleo because of the icing, but a great alternative to regular cupcakes.
  • Brussels Sprouts & Butternut Squash with Bacon Vinaigrette: loooooooved this recipe. A paleo dream. I didn’t have chesnuts on hand, but it was still amazing.
  • Zucchini Noodles: We typically make spaghetti using spaghetti squash, but zucchini noodles were a nice change. I topped them with sauteed turkey kielbasa and marinara. I actually sauteed my noodles, and I’ve also heard of microwaving them.
  • Brussels Sprouts with Gin, Pancetta, Caraway, and Sherry Vinegar: Obviously, I’ve been on a Brussels Sprouts kick lately. I’ve mixed this recipe up a bit by using bacon and apple cider vinegar–still amazing.
  • Baked Fish with Spinach: April from the gym reminded me of this recipe a couple months. I’ve made it twice during the past month, and it’s still just as good as the first time I made it.
  • Fish Sticks: No big secret here, but I dredge pieces of cod in egg, then a mixture of almond meal, coconut flour, garlic salt and black pepper, and bake in the oven for 25 minutes or so on an oiled cookie sheet.
  • Honey-Pepper Bacon Pops: Made these for a CrossFit baby shower, and yum, who can resist bacon?!?

I'm a full-time wife and semi-stay-at-home mom to four young kids. Day to day, I help my husband with his small business, but when I have any extra time, you can find me cooking or being active outdoors with my family. We live at the foothills of the North Georgia mountains and are embracing modern homesteading month by month.
