What’s On My Nightstand: Spring 2015 Edition

Even though the temps have been in the 90s these past few days (yuck!), it’s still technically spring here in Texas.  I couldn’t let another season slip by before letting you know what’s on my nightstand. (Check out SUMMER, FALL and WINTER for more reading suggestions.) I still don’t get to read like I used to (for hours on end) … Continue reading

Primal Kitchen’s Paleo Mayo

Primal Kitchen’s Paleo Mayo

Oh man, can I tell you about the best tasting mayonnaise on the market right now?  I’m not normally one to gush over mayo but holy cow this stuff is good!  It’s so good that Emma likes to eat it straight from the jar (on occasion I do, too).  This yummy condiment I’m referring to is … Continue reading

I figure there’s still time to get my reading list in since old man winter visited us last week.  There hasn’t been much to complain about over the past few months here in Dallas (sorry, New England!), but since we’ve had several white days, I thought it best to get this in while it still feels cold.  (Check out my summer and … Continue reading

Caramel-Coffee Fudge Brownies {Paleo, Dairy-free}

Caramel-Coffee Fudge Brownies {Paleo, Dairy-free}

Who wants some yummy, delectable brownies to start the week off right?  I found these decadent little gems in the First for Women magazine when checking out at Market Street.  I like perusing that particular magazine when I get in the checkout line, and couldn’t believe it when they had a 24-page spread about Paleo!  Of course, they reel you … Continue reading
