Instant Pot Beef Stew

We are growing to really love beef stew in our house.  Especially with homemade beef bone broth.  For this recipe, I got the chuck roast from my mom’s farm and the bones were still attached and I just threw them in to make bone broth while it made stew!  It was perfect, the leftovers in Read More …

Elderberry Gummies

So everyone in our family town has been passing around colds for about 6 weeks now.  Knock on wood, I attribute my daughters only brief illnesses to these gummies.  She loves them.  I don’t mind giving them to her either.  They have a great texture and are mildly sweet, but nothing too crazy.  I tried store bought Read More …

Trio Bars

One of the main things that made my husband encourage me to seek a business in nutrition was my ‘granola’ bars. I mostly followed other recipes in the beginning but I decided I wanted to branch out and make my own.  I posted my first recipe a while back here but I think I like this one Read More …

Beef Stew

It’s finally getting colder here and there were even some flurries today!  I love snow, winter is my favorite season.

Grilled Corn

So yes, I know corn isn’t paleo.  But I get it every other week in my CSA and I really like it. I don’t really think my body digests it but eating it once every two weeks doesn’t seem to have any lasting effects.  It’s real food and it’s delicious. I love this recipe and Read More …

Grilled Lemon Thyme Chicken

Summer is so wonderful with fresh items from my CSA and garden.  I used those items to design this meal.  It’s also great because it does not need any inside cooking.  I made these chicken thighs with Grilled Corn and a Cucumber and Cabbage Salad which I will link to once I get those posts up and Read More …

Cucumber and Cabbage Salad

My garden really has been doing well this year.  I got two nice sized cabbages and I am continuing to get so many cucumbers.  I wanted to do a sort of play on cole slaw and added the cucumbers in there for crunch.  You can make this and serve immediately or if you make it Read More …
