Easy Peasy Pancakes

Easy Peasy Pancakes

I have tried for years now to get a handle on making grain-free pancakes. It’s a lot harder than it looks, truly, and no recipe has ever come out like regular wheat ones. Often you’ll find them too thick or too thin, too slow to cook or too easy to burn....
Chocolate Trail Mix Detox Cookies

Chocolate Trail Mix Detox Cookies

What do you call a ball of ingredients that’s packed with protein & healthy fat and missing the sweeteners that would make it a cookie? How do you tell people, “Warning, this cookie is not your typical cookie. Do not think this recipe will remind you...
No Spend & No Sugar – Week 1

No Spend & No Sugar – Week 1

Yowzer! Who would’ve thought there’d be such interest from you all in what I wasn’t even sure we should write about (since it’s not technically paleo)… our resolution to make January a No Spend month. I’ve gotten a disproportionate...

Panang Beef Thai Curry

Panang Beef Thai Curry

My favorite Thai restaurant, Thai Basil, serves the greatest Panang Curry I’ve ever had. It’s slightly sweet, spicy, and full of flavor. I knew once we moved some thirty miles from Chantilly that I had to create it for home. I puzzled for years on how to...

A unique guest post this week! We haven’t been posting recipes for a while, so we enlisted the help of Dave Wendel, husband of Ann Wendel of Prana-PT. You may remember Ann from our vacation team where she was helpfully involved when we could not or from the fact...

Buffalo in a Pig’s Blanket

Our Easter and Mint Lamb Meatballs

Our Easter and Mint Lamb Meatballs

Wow, what an amazing weekend we had. This post is uber-picture heavy, so I’ll keep the words to a minimum. Friday afternoon I left work early (yeah!) and the family headed out to Algonkian Regional Park. We stayed in a beautiful 4 bedroom cottage on the Potomac...
Rendering Suet into Tallow

Rendering Suet into Tallow

A few weeks back we visited Mt. Vernon Farms and, among the other goodies we got, picked up some grass-fed beef suet. Suet is essentially pure fat that is sometimes used in its natural form, but is usually used to render into tallow. We love to use tallow and lard in...
