2012 Goals and 2011 Accomplishments

2012 Goals and 2011 Accomplishments

I feel like a cliche, but 2011 has been the best year of our lives. We’re feeling and looking the best we ever have, our kids and family are (mostly) healthy and happy, and we’ve had a tremendous number of opportunities for our family. Even tonight, as I pull my hair out during final edits of our book – I can’t help but be incredibly thankful and...
Delicious Urban Parents NYE Menu

Delicious Urban Parents NYE Menu

The holidays have been amazing this year. I took a whole week off of work, spent quality time with the family, and mainly managed to avoid computers.  Knowing I’d want to fall into the real world abyss for a little while, I asked two of my new favorite paleo mamas to do a New Years Eve post with me. If you don’t know Heather at Multiply Delicious or  Jenni at...
Dark Chocolate Banana Bites

Dark Chocolate Banana Bites

Another genius recipe from Cole, this one is a sister to our Flourless Fudgy Brownie Bites. When we were discussing making treats for Christmas gifts he suggested those brownies. But it was a Friday night and I was feeling too lazy to melt chocolate. So he and I chatted about what we could use instead, and the result is his creation (with my help). When we came up with...

Want a Personalized Letter and Peek into Eat Like a Dinosaur?

Have you pre-ordered our book? Are you thinking about it? Are you still trying to figure out what to get people for the holidays? It occurred to us that you might have pre-ordered our book to give someone this holiday season. Or, perhaps you wish you could give it to them as a holiday gift but want something in hand. So, we put our heads together to come up with...
Our First Hanukkah

Our First Hanukkah

Last night was the first night our family has ever celebrated Hanukkah. We’re not a religious family, but we celebrate Christmas for the joy, the togetherness and the spirit of giving. It’s a tradition both Matt and I grew up with and the idea of Santa is fun and enchanting. Especially these days; have you seen these videograms and trackers kids can follow?...

We have now been Well Fed

We have now been Well Fed

When we started our Paleo journey, the only place I knew to get recipes was the internet. Now, I have a bookshelf that is quickly filling up with fantastic Paleo cookbooks. Despite that, and the fact that we wrote our own, I am in love with Melissa Joulwan’s Well Fed. Matt and I are foodies. He said on our Facebook wall the other day, “we didn’t get fat...
News You Can Use

News You Can Use

Alrighty, we owe another book reveal post because you fantastic, supportive, and always surprising people have “liked” Eat Like a Dinosaur on Amazon 100 TIMES?!   The most common questions we get are usually related to execution in the kitchen. We understand that going Paleo introduces you to weird tools like meat grinders, dehydrators, your own ice...
Guest Post: Summer’s Series – Part I

Guest Post: Summer’s Series – Part I

I was introduced to Summer through Tara from The Foodie and The Family, who pointed me to the Banana Hammocks & Tutus’s Facebook page.  I was instantly charmed by Summer’s candor and openness. Her blog is fun to follow and her kids are adorable. The fact that she was doing before & after pictures, writing about how awesome paleo poop is, and...
Day of Discovery

Day of Discovery

Over on the Facebook page, Stacy spent the day sharing other bloggers for you to discover. As we realize that not everyone is on Facebook, we figured some of you might appreciate a little recap by me. Day of discovery #1: The Mango Duck. I first discovered Mango Duck when Stacy texted me a link to a recipe and insisted we needed to make it RIGHT AWAY! All of the recipes...
Chai Thai Tea for the Tribe

Chai Thai Tea for the Tribe

I don’t think Matt and I can ever say enough, how important having a supportive social circle is to the success of raising your children. It was essential to have when we were the breastfeeding, baby-wearing, cloth diapering, homemade baby food weird hippie new parents and being encouraged to take an easier route by others. And it’s even more important now...
12 Days of Paleo(ish) Sweet Treats

12 Days of Paleo(ish) Sweet Treats

As you get ready to bake, double boil and beautify with ribbons and glitter for the 12 days of Christmas, or whichever holiday your family may choose to celebrate, consider some of our favorite Paleo(ish) treats!  Although I wouldn’t call these “healthy” I will say that they offer a lot more nutrition and are less toxic to your liver than what you may...

Turkey Thai Basil

Turkey Thai Basil

One of our many “tricks” to making So what do you do with all that turkey meat? Be inventive! Use it where you would’ve used chicken.  We make a Maple Chicken (Turkey) Salad (recipe in our book) that the boys love to put in lettuce cups. We also make Turkey Enchiladas and Turkey Soup (recipes coming). You can even freeze portions and save it for later....
Watching our family grow one tree at a time

Watching our family grow one tree at a time

We’ve mentioned before that we love holiday traditions. In talking about prepping this post, Matt and I realized we’ve been cutting down our own Christmas tree for 5 years. Our friends invited us with their family (actually, it was Kerry) and I remember seeing Cole toddle around in the dirt and mud as we let our kids run free and shout “I like this one,...

Deep Thoughts: Taking Care of Me

Deep Thoughts: Taking Care of Me

I feel like I need to author this post under the name Jack Handey. Deep Thoughts, Stacy’s Obligatory Monthly Cathartic Moment… But I want to make a post about Taking Care of Yourself. It’s something I really needed a reminder about. I wasn’t paying attention to the person I’m most responsible for: me.  Not work. Not the kids. Not the cats....
Philly Shroom Burger

Philly Shroom Burger

One of our favorite cities in America is Philadelphia. Now, granted, we’ve only visited and never lived there, but how can you compete with a city that features both this and this and this and her? Also, how can you not love a city that has so little shame that they boo Santa and proudly proclaim a municipal dish that is best served smothered in canned cheese food?...
Thanksgiving Recap

Thanksgiving Recap

As we said two weeks ago, Thanksgiving is my personal favorite holiday. I’ve not really gotten into the candy holidays like Halloween and Easter, I don’t enjoy the parties of New Year’s, and I’ve always felt a little awkward towards the giving and receiving of presents. Thanksgiving, to its credit, gives me the opportunity to offer up what I feel...

Black Friday Reminders
