BBQ Pineapple Pork Pizza + Baby Update

I’ve been obsessed with making this pizza crust since being pregnant. Over the summer I made pesto, chicken and veggie pizza with this paleo pizza crust pretty much every week. I’m already dreaming about that combination and can’t wait for basil to be back in season! In the meantime we’ve been making other pizza combos such as fig jam, prosciutto, …

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. …

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 …

The Best Bacon Hashbrowns and 20 Weeks!

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 …

BBQ Pork Pizza with Spaghetti Squash Crust and Second Trimester Updates

Things have been going much, much better in the symptom, food and exercise department compared to how I felt throughout the first trimester. I’ve had a much healthier appetite and have been able to cook a lot more than I was in the beginning. I still have my indulgences but sticking to the Paleo or just a whole foods diet …

Bacon and Butternut Squash Egg Casserole

I am officially obsessed with any kind of egg bake. It’s just so easy to clean out my fridge and throw leftover cooked veggies and meat into a bowl with eggs and spices, bake in a casserole dish and call it good! The combo of sweet butternut squash and salty bacon is delicious. Add in sundried tomatoes and spinach for …

Potato Frittata

Prosciutto, Potato and Spinach Frittata

Frittatas are one of my favorite dishes to make. They are so easy and you can incorporate any meat, veggie or cheese (if you want). They are fairly quick to make, especially if you have the ingredients prepped. And they make for a great breakfast, lunch or dinner! I’ve posted a few frittata recipes here and here. This recipe was actually …

Leftover Turkey, Sweet Potato and Bacon Hash

I can’t believe Thanksgiving has already come and gone and we are only less than three weeks away from Christmas. It is going to fly by! We had an awesome Thanksgiving. I was pretty impressed with my own planning abilities and created a stress-free Thanksgiving day by cooking most of my dishes ahead of time. Dinner turned out great. We …

Curried Pork, Squash and Kale Frittata

I am finally starting to feel better and can eat pretty much all my Paleo favs again…including avocados. Yeah! Joe and I have been super busy the last couple of weeks from hosting friends, busy work schedules, friends/family in town, kickball and neighborhood parties. We went to a “Friendsgiving” neighborhood party this week that was so much fun. It was a …
