Braciole is a popular Italian dish. Using flank steak works the best as it becomes very tender after slow cooking all day.  You can roll the meat with your favorite filling.  I had frozen kale handy along with the other ingredients.  I picked up the flank steak at Joseph's Classic Market.

Paleo Fruit Tart

If you know me or follow me....  Then you know my granddaughter Brooke.  We love our time together and she loves to bake!  I am a cook and she is the baker. When we are together it's mostly baking we do.  It's great that she can fly down to Florida in the winter during her school breaks as an unaccompanied minor. Then again she has been traveling with me since she was 2.

We were at our farmers market on Sunday and got our vegetables along with strawberries and blueberries. I already had bananas (which we are making our pudding with in this recipe) and the other ingredients for a fruit tart.  My tart pan is 11 inches so this recipe is measured to fit.  Adjust if you are using a 9 inch.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did....

Paleo Mushroom Arancini

Paleo Mushroom Arancini

Every Italian gets excited when Arancini's are being served.  I used to make them with my Nana and dip them in tomato sauce.  Or we would serve with sauce at the bottom of a bowl then the arancini on top.  

You can add you favorite filling such as peas, meat, or your favorite combination.  Using wild or cultivated mushrooms really makes these arancini's even more amazing!
