Here’s Harold the Turkey, our Thanksgiving mascot.
Over Thanksgiving I was put in charge of handling “leftover day” and appeasing 25 different people. We had quite the hodge podge of a leftover feast after it was all said and done. We ended up with mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, turkey soup, and a nice salad.
After more than a year of a paleo lifestyle, you’ll never catch me buying salad dressing from the store. It’s way more delicious (and super simple) to just make it yourself. At the request of a number of family members, I give you two of my favorite salad dressing recipes. Continue reading
I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned how much I seriously love breakfast hash.

My sister and I at the Golden Gate Bridge.

(My post, sausage and brussels sprouts, was also an edited PaleOMG recipe.) Continue reading
So, I grew up with my mom boiling frozen brussels sprouts because she loved them. This was the one food that was put on my plate as a kid that I legitimately hated. It finally got to the point where my sister and I would refuse to eat them that she would cook a second veggie on nights she wanted brussels sprouts. I’m 25 and I honestly couldn’t tell you the last time I ate brussels sprouts. Continue reading
