3 ingredient Kale Chips

Kale chips are super easy to make or can be super easy to mess up!  We know that is true.  They are just so yummy...

Here is what you need to know to make the perfect crispy kale chips!

First take your kale and remove the ribs. You can easily do this by holding the bottom rib from the leaf with one hand and use the other hand to grip onto the rib and move your hand up the leaf separating the two from each other.  Next, either chop or tear the leaves into small pieces and place in your colander.  Rinse throughly then dry.  I like to lay paper towels down on my counter then create an even layer of the leaves.  Top with another layer of paper towels and press down.  You want the leaves dry before baking them into chips.  If they wet... they will burn!

Almost Paleo Cornbread Biscuits

There is just something about homemade cornbread that makes everyone happy.  We smoked a pork shoulder for Superbowl  Sunday and I thought having some cornbread biscuits would be a great addition to the rolls.

I just love Bob's Mill Paleo Baking Mix and it worked great with this recipe.

Also, I don't buy buttermilk and it's so easy to make at home. This is all you do!

  1. Pour 1 cup of milk into a measuring glass
  2. Either squeeze 2 lemons for 1 tablespoon of juice or 1 tablespoon of white vinegar to a bowl.  Stir and let sit for about 10 minutes....
  3. Now you have buttermilk.

My family loves popovers and I enjoy making them for them.  We all so the popover dance together.  I had some fresh asparagus and my Lodge Cast Iron pan was on the stove already to sauté them.  Last minute I decided to create a large popover and I was so happy that everyone just loved it.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family did!  xo Cindy

Note:  My pan is 12 inches and this recipe was developed to fit this pan.  I you have the 10 inch pan you will want to alter the recipe.

I always think banana bread when those bananas are nice a ripe on the counter.  Today I decided to make more of a breakfast cake in a 9 inch pan.  Slicing the bread with a side of fresh fruit was a  perfect weekend breakfast with our coffee as we sit outside enjoying the amazing Florida weather.

Basic Pesto

When making pesto, double or triple the batch and freeze it in individual containers to use anytime. You can keep pestos in a sealed container for a week. I like to add some on an easy tomato salad or even a little drizzle to my omelets or frittatas in the morning. Also, perfect on fresh Italian bread or a crusty crostini. Make my delicious Pesto Pasta Salad or drizzle over a skewer filled with a cherry tomato, mozzarella cheese and a basil leaf for a great appetizer!

If you want to enjoy my basic pesto as a paleo recipe then just omit the parmesan cheese. You can also substitute pine nuts for your favorite such as walnuts, almonds, etc.

I just love no-cook treats and these Blueberry Chocolate Protein Balls are the perfect anytime go-to and best of all they are Paleo and Gluten Free.

Bulgar Wheat and Vegetable Cakes

As I was walking around the grocery store looking for inspirations  spotted a box of burger wheat.  I decided to grab the box and use it a few different way.  We love tobuli and I make kibbeh in the summer.

At the grocery store they had buy one get one free of grape tomatoes so I decided to roast one package with lots of garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil.  The combination went great together.

Canned Rasin Bread

I was watching the food network and caught this recipe.  I had the large 28 ounce cans from sauce and changed the recipe a little to accommodate the larger cans and make them more of an adult bread. 

From Cindy!  I don't like to open a package for just a portion of the ingredients.  Therefore I also wanted to use the entire container of raisins!

Cheesey, Jalapeño and Bacon Cornbread
  • Time: 30 Minutes
  • Complexity: medium

Cheesey, Jalapeño and Bacon Cornbread

This recipe started because my girlfriend is making chili.  I thought making a cornbread would go great but I wanted to make it extra special and have plenty.  Plus I also looked at this way - I had all of the ingredients and had to purchase a quart of buttermilk so why not use it all now.  Any leftovers (which I doubt can be frozen and saved for another time).

As I was starring at my paella pan  from Le Creuset that is when it came to me!  This paella pan would make a great cornbread and look amazing too! I also love my OXO kitchen essentials.  I just couldn't imagine using anything else.  In this recipe I used mixing bowlmeasuring cupmeasuring spoons and oven mits!  I am a happy girl in the kitchen.

For our breakfast I made bacon and reserved 4 pieces so you can omit the bacon if you don't  have it handy but I always make extra "just in case" or Jake gets to enjoy it during the week.

This is what I did! Now remember this is for a large paella pan - If you are making in a standard cast iron pan or 8x8 baking dish then cut the ingredients in 1/2 except for the baking soda (use 1 tablespoon)

Chocolate Zucchini Bread

I found 3 very large zucchini in one of my gardens and decided what a great way to make chocolate zucchini bread. When I shredded the zucchini the seeds were extremely large so I did not use them but there was plenty of zucchini to make 2 breads.

This is not a Paleo recipe but I do have one here which is very good so either one is a great zucchini bread to enjoy! Paleo Zucchini Bread
