Berry Coconut Scones | PALEO


I went through plenty of dieting highs and lows when I was in high school (and beyond) - where I would bounce back and forth from "treating myself" to restricting everything I ate.  Anyone else?

Butternut Squash Oven "Fries"


First things first, let's throw a few things out there:  Potatoes get crispy in the oven.  Squash does not.  I went on a mission to make this happen-- crispiness, that is.  And I pulled out all the stops to get my squash ACAP (as crispy as possible)!

Simple Seared Scallops


A light, tender protein that cooks in 5 minutes or less?!  It may sound too good to be true, but these scallops are the real deal!

I love how they taste so light & summery over a giant fresh salad- yet can fill you right up on a chilly night, served over creamy Butternut Squash Cauliflower Risotto or with spaghetti squash in my Creamy Lemon Garlic "Pasta" with Scallops.

Scallops are a tricky protein- they're easy to overcook.  The best way to foolproof, perfectly seared scallops every time?  Keep it simple.  

Cake Batter Freezer Fudge | PALEO


I've had a "cake batter" flavor combo on my mind for some time now, with a list of recipes I could try it out on.  Then I remembered my Cinnamon Roll Freezer Fudge, and how I've been meaning to come up with a new flavor to share.  So, I spent a few minutes in the kitchen, put the two thoughts together, and.... IT WORKED!

Apple Spice Sausage Patties


I love me some eggs for breakfast, but I'm not gonna lie~ they do occasionally get redundant.  And I'm left in search of something different to start my morning:  like these sausage patties!
