How to Make Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix

We’re having a heatwave here in southern California right now. It’s been over 100 degrees this week. It wasn’t this hot **all summer**, but now in the middle of September – BOOM! My body knows it’s not even close to fall (or is it? who knows), but my mind says it’s time for fall things…

Paleo fx 2014

Remember last year when I was so wrapped up in my chocolate book-making bubble that I didn’t even know about Paleo fx, and jumped on a plane with Ginger 10 hours after finding out? That was so funny. Ginger and I had a blast. This year I was ready, but sadly Ginger, who is going…

Paleo Chocolate Cake

So there’s this gene that men don’t have, called The Chocolate Cake Gene. I mean, I’m sure some men occasionally enjoy a piece of chocolate cake, but they don’t need it, do they? Some men (like my husband) don’t even care if they never have a piece of chocolate cake again. Which is crazy to…
