Elk Stew from Eating Appalachia

Chianti-Braised Elk Stew from Eating Appalachia

Hi! It’s me, Andrew (Kelly’s husband). I’ve been waiting for Eating Appalachia to be published since last fall when I designed the book’s cover. Kelly may have mentioned that I design book covers (and their insides) for a living. Usually the publisher sends me a short description of the book to get a sense of how…

Paleo Mexican Meatloaf

Mexican Meatloaf from Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook

This meatloaf is so good! Ridiculously good. It’s also ridiculous that I took a photo of it, because the photo in the book and all of the other photos in the book are soooo beautiful that why take another one? But when I make a friend’s recipe and review it on my blog I like proof…

Sweet and Sour Chicken from Paleo Takeout

Sweet and Sour Chicken from Paleo Takeout

Hi all, Andrew here. I was super excited to receive a review copy of Russ Crandall’s Paleo Takeout: Restaurant Favorites Without the Junk. Chinese food is my favorite, but it’s one of the more difficult restaurant foods to find gluten-free. Sure, there’s P. F. Chang’s and Pei Wei, but most mom and pop chinese restaurants I’ve…

Which Spunky Coconut Baking Mix Do You Want First?

Update: The Pizza Mix is available to buy now! Last year life started feeling too hard so we began eating out more and more often. Eating out wasn’t usually as healthy as eating at home, and it was definitely more expensive. I realized that I needed to make some changes for the health and happiness of my…

Sun Cover and Vitamin D

We began seeing Ashley’s current doctor in about 2008. One of the first things she told me was to make sure that Ashley (and all of us for that matter) get sun every day. She advised 20 minutes of sun a day if we tolerated it without burning. A strange request for a doctor to…

Vanilla Toasted Coconut Bars

Dude… it’s been rough times at my house. While Andy and Zoe were in Colorado for a few days I got glutened and I’m still dealing with it. Then after we picked them up at the airport yesterday Ashley got the stomach flu, poor baby. Ginger is either feeling under the weather now, or just…

Gluten-free Focaccia

Do you remember my dairy-free grain-free Ooey Gooey Butter Cake? It got me thinking that a variation of that cake would also make a great quick bread that the kids could make all by themselves. So we modified the recipe and turned it into a yummy little gluten-free focaccia. Now the girls can say that they…

Shop for organic foods on iHerb

Where I shop for my ingredients

When we lived in Colorado we were very fortunate to have Vitamin Cottage, a grocery store that sells organic food at great prices (now called Natural Grocers). But most of my readers were struggling to find my organic ingredients at an affordable price where they lived. That’s when my brother told me about iHerb.com. As with…

Orange Cake

Last year we drove through an orange orchard in bloom for the first time. The trees stood along the road for miles. We rolled down the windows, and the smell was aammmaaaazing! A couple weeks ago I was at Costco when I experienced that orange blossom smell. They were selling dwarf orange trees. I had to get one. Ashley…

Celeriac Pasta with Artichoke Hearts & Baked Eggs

Do you have my free eBook? Have you made the celeriac pasta yet? I think you should. It’s my husband’s and my FAVORITE thing to spiralize. It has a mild celery flavor and it’s just delicious spiralized with some ghee or olive oil, or taken a little further with the sauce and chicken in the…
