    What is your monthly food budget?

    What is your monthly food budget? I am on a quest to find what the average family spends a month on groceries! I polled a ton of people on Facebook and I would love input from my readers! What do you spend a month on groceries for your house? How many people do you feed? Do you buy some, all or no organic foods? Click the picture below and it will take you to Instagram so that you can be a part of the conversation! If you don’t have Instagram that is ok! Leave me a comment here!  [wp_ad_camp_1] I’m doing a little research for my blog and would love…

    Paleo Frosted Banana Bars

    Paleo Frosted Banana Bars!  We found ourselves with an abundance of overly ripe bananas. What I was wanting was Paula Deans Banana Cake with cream cheese frosting, but we all know that would have been a terrible idea! This recipe is my attempt to replicate the taste of Paula’s famous cake in a bar format that my family can eat.  The boys wouldn’t stay out of it and the entire pan of Paleo Frosted Banana Bars were GONE in less than 24 hours. My husband might have helped a little! These are great as dessert, but they are super awesome in the morning with a cup of black coffee! I…

    Paleo Hibiscus Ice Cream

    Paleo Hibiscus Ice Cream So, it sounds really strange, but we got a whole bag of dried hibiscus flowers from bountiful baskets and I wanted to find something other than making tea to do with it.

    Paleo Fried Chicken

    Finger Lick’n Paleo Fried Chicken! It’s no big secret that I am a southern girl who was born and raised in Texas. In the South we fry EVERYTHING! Seriously… have you heard of our famous state fair deep friend Oreos or deep-fried margaritas. Yes, that is a thing. Anyway, I digress. What I was really wanting was some good, southern fried chicken. Other Paleo fried chicken recipes with nut flours just weren’t cutting. They ended up soggy or had a strange texture. I wanted a good, crunchy, slightly salty, juicy, fried chicken. I was at the store buying our weekly 15 bags (they are tiny) of plantain chips and I…

    52 Week Money Saving Plan!

    I have seen several of these 52 week money saving plans online. So far all of the ones I have seen START with the small amount and end (around the holidays) with the largest amount. For me, that didn’t work.  It reminded me of when I was a kid. I would eat the food on my plate that I disliked first and save the best for last. The way I set up my own personal money saving plan isn’t much different. I save the hardest amount first and end the year with the easiest contributions! It will make the holiday savings plan or whatever goal you have much more achievable.…

    Easy Salt Dough Ornaments!

    Easy Salt Dough Ornaments! [wp_ad_camp_1] We wanted to do something a little different with our Christmas tree this year so we decided to make our own ornaments! I put this off for a long time because I thought it would be too difficult or time consuming. I was surprised to find out that these ARE really simple and quick to make! We used gingerbread cookie cutters this time and we decided to use some of the more natural ingredients around the kitchen to color these with. We used turmeric for the yellow, cinnamon for the reddish-brown, cocoa for the dark grey and just plain salt dough for white. The “people”…

    Fudgy sweet potato brownies!

    MMM. Brownies. Chewy, fudgy, thick chocolate goodness. We have tried several “paleo” brownies and just could not get into the texture or the taste of them so we decided to try our hand at Sweet Potato Brownies. We had an abundance of purple sweet potatoes lying around so we used those instead of the traditional orange ones. They don’t taste any different, but it does make the brownies LOOK darker instead of the orange tinge the traditional sweet potatoes give. I was a little skeptical of these when I was whipping up this recipe, but the results were awesome. The only regret is not having some raw milk on hand…
