When I first started a blog back in 2010, I was creating and posting a few recipes a week. Back then before kids, I had plenty of time on my hands and well as energy. Since my first son was born at the end of 2011, my recipe postings have been minimal, but I wanted to create a recipe index that would help me find old favorites as well as benefit anyone else who stumbles across my blog.

Many of the recipes are paleo or paleo + dairy, but keep in mind that in 2010 ingredients like agave nectar weren’t as controversial as they are now. Just remember that ingredients such as these can most always be substituted with something else (i.e. raw honey, maple syrup, coconut sugar, etc.) I’ve always found that the best recipes are those I tweak to my own liking anyway. Enjoy!
