Grilled Eggplant and Pepperoni Parmesan Plus Baby Update

With little Enzo here, we are all about easy to make meals right now. I still have a few things left in the freezer as well but I’m trying to space those out. We were so blessed to have so many friends support us by bringing over meals. Also having family stay with us here and there has helped tremendously. …

Post-Baby Freezer Meals Update

Now less than 2 weeks away from our baby’s due date, I think I may be done stocking up the freezer. It’s pretty full and my energy is starting to slowly diminish. It’s been a battle just keeping up with regular cooking, let alone additional cooking. I feel pretty good about what we have stocked up so far and if …

Grilled Curry Maple-Mustard Chicken

During the summer, Joe grills pretty much every night. I have been avoiding the oven as much as possible during our 100 degree days. Being pregnant doesn’t really help with the heat either! Luckily, Joe really likes grilling and has gotten a few staples nailed down. Chicken is one of them. This glaze is so tasty and a nice change …

Grilled Smoked Paprika Potatoes

Since the weather has slowly but steadily been creeping up, Joe and I have been grilling as much as possible to avoid turning the oven on. And when I say Joe and I, I really mean Joe since I never touch the grill… My Mom got us this Weber grill basket maybe 4 years ago and we use it almost …

Post-Baby Freezer Meals

Now that I’ve hit the 30 week mark (what??!!) I’ve gotten serious about planning out some meals I can prep and put in the freezer for when Thing 3 makes his debut. My goal is to make 2-3 meals each week, label with the date and instructions, and freeze. I feel like this will make a huge difference for us …

Sausage and Egg Quesadillas

Sausage and Egg Quesadillas

I’m way past due for a recipe post! Before starting the Paleo diet, I almost always ordered quesadillas at Mexican restaurants. Now my go-to is usually fajitas, a salad or tacos with gluten-free corn tortillas on occasion. I found these awesome non-GMO, sprouted corn tortillas at our grocery store and devoured them. Unfortunately I haven’t seen them again! I look …

Loaded Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet Potato Fries

Joe introduced me to what we always called “fries with hamburger” when we first started dating. Basically it was a bag of frozen waffle fries cooked until crispy topped with cooked ground beef and shredded cheese, then broiled. It was delicious! I’ve mixed it up over the years and used the all-natural frozen sweet potato fries and added a few …

The Best Bacon Hashbrowns and 20 Weeks!

Bacon Hashbrowns

Joe found this awesome recipe in Esquire magazine. I really didn’t change up the recipe much so they get all the credit for this one. And I guess Joe gets some credit for persuading me to make it! I believe you could sub sweet potatoes for this to make it more Paleo-friendly, however I haven’t personally tried it. My guess …

Asparagus and Bacon Quiche with Spaghetti Squash Crust

I’m obsessed with spaghetti squash (if you can’t tell by my growing collection of recipes that use it). It’s one of the simplest winter squashes to prepare. So much easier than butternut squash which you have to peel and chop before cooking. I can put a whole spaghetti squash in the oven for about 45 minutes to an hour, and …

Paleo Weekly Meal Planning

I’m a super planner when it comes to most everything in my life (maybe a little too much) and when it comes to meal planning, I make no exceptions. It’s so important for me to have a plan in place, make one trip to the Farmer’s Market and one to the grocery store on Saturday and be set (hopefully!). I …
