Creamy Salsa Verde Chicken

I've been really into cashews again lately for making basically ANY dish turn creamy & delicious.  

They're the best for dairy-free swaps like cheesecakes & creamy sauces.  But, I was craving something a little different- something even more savory.  And the thought of that cheesy cashew creaminess paired with somethin' spicy... just sounded too good!

Paleo Lemon Poppyseed Cookies

Anyone else a once-fan (or current... no judgement) of those giant poppyseed muffins at Costco?  There was a time in my childhood where those big guys were a breakfast staple.  

While the days of Costco baked goods may be long gone in our house, I still LOVE that "poppyseed muffin" flavor.  So, I decided to recreate them Paleo-style!

Buffalo Chicken Breakfast Skillet

During one of my recent rounds of Whole30, I picked up the compliant variety pack of sauces from Tessemae's.  I figured I'd give them each a shot in different recipes and see which were my favorites-- the ones worth repurchasing.  Turns out they were basically ALL a hit, but this buffalo sauce....  TOO GOOD.

BBQ Pineapple Pork Chili

Winter weather, an ever-hungry boyfriend, and the Super Bowl:  three reasons I felt the timing was just right for another chili recipe!

This one is just as easy & just as Paleo as my good ol' "All American Crockpot Chili", but brings a little "I'm ready for summer time" flair with sweet pineapple cooked in to that savory base.

In fact, this one is Whole30 compliant as written in the recipe-  no need for changes!

Snickerdoodle Cheesecake Blondie Bars (Paleo)

Some days I have a lot on my mind & an endless to-do list, and a "food is fuel" mentality.  I prep breakfast & lunch, make a simple, nutritious dinner, and do minimal snacking.  I drink a lot of water & take all of my supplements.  

Other days, I think about food.  All.  Day.  Long.  

"How long ago was breakfast?  It feels like hours ago, I'm starving."  
"Is 10:30 too early to eat my packed lunch?"
"Okay, I'm all out of food.  Gotta go home now."
"This whole bag of plantain chips is basically just one serving, right?"  etc., etc.
