Tropical Guacamole

I have probably mentioned before that my four year old is totally obsessed with guacamole. If you have met us in person, you know it is quite the spectacle. He will eat guacamole {or more recently just plain avocados} every day if given the change. I love guacamole myself but not quite that much! I’ve been trying to change it up for him from time to time and recently made a tropical guacamole that he absolutely loved!

We’re huge Mexican food fans in our house. Seriously, my kid eats guacamole by the truck load and we have at least one Mexican inspired dish on our menu every week. So, of course, we are super excited about Cinco de Mayo. The only bummer is that it is a Tuesday which means I won’t have time to put together a lot of stuff for our celebration. Thankfully, I know where to get delicious taquitos and tamales. Then, all I have to do is make a few delicious sauces and toppings so my family can make their own taquito platter. One of our favorite sauces is jalapeno kale dip which my kids think is just avocado ranch {and I am not tell them any different since the word kale would instantly get a disgusted face and rejection}.

Strawberry Goat Cheese Crostini

I love cheese. That doesn’t always marry well with my Paleo lifestyle but I do allow myself to indulge from time to time. One of my favorite cheeses is goat cheese. I love it in salads, pasta and so many other dishes too. I had some gorgeous, fresh strawberries recently and I was torn with what to do with them…besides eat them. I ended up making strawberry goat cheese crostini and it was the perfect Spring lunch.

Raspberry Italian Mojito

The weather is really starting to warm up here and we are enjoying more and more time out on the deck. More time outside usually means more yummy cocktails being mixed in our house. One of our local restaurants makes an Italian mojito and it is my favorite. At home, I decided to try my own and concocted this Raspberry Italian mojito.

Paleo Southwestern Waffles

I’m in love with a waffle maker. Is that weird? I certainly hope not because I’m not willing to break up with it anytime soon. Ever since I made my paleo lemon poppyseed waffles, I can’t stop making waffles. This time I am going savory though with my newest obsession: paleo southwestern waffles.

Slow Cooker Chocolate Lava Cake

Slow Cooker Chocolate Lava Cake - a moist delicious cake oozing with hot chocolate sauce. This slow cooker recipe is not only easy, but probably the best thing you'll ever make in a slow cooker.

Hey Just Us Four Readers! I hope y’all are ready for another delicious recipe, because this one is a doozy! When I first read that you could make cake in a slow cooker, I really didn’t believe it…I’m not sure why, but probably because I am terrible at real baking, and this seemed like a major shortcut. I decided to try out a Slow Cooker Chocolate cake, and made it lava style – Slow Cooker Chocolate Lava Cake.

Three Ingredient Lemon Cake Batter Dip

Any time a recipe starts with the phrase “three ingredients”, it makes my heart go pitter patter. I love cooking but I don’t always have the time to make the recipes I want because of the lengthy list of ingredients. Having an arsenal of recipes that don’t require many ingredients, like three ingredient TWIX dip, carrot cake dip or this lemon cake batter dip, makes it easy for me to still make something even when I am short on time.

Triple Cheese Kale Dip Challenge

We love hosting parties or just having people over to hang out at the last minute on a weekend. Whenever I have people coming over, I like to have at least a few snacks for them to eat while we talk or watch tv. One of the easiest things to serve is dip with either bread or chips. My newest favorite is triple cheese kale dip because, well, it has three cheeses in it. You can totally call it just kale dip though to make yourself think you are eating vegetables!

Pineapple Pork Tacos

You know how they say that a stomach is a way to a man’s heart? In my case, tacos would definitely be a good way to try and go after my heart. From bang bang shrimp tacos to turkey tacos and cranberry salsa to pineapple pork tacos, I just can’t get enough.

Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramelitas

So, you guys see me posting all the Paleo recipes and I’m sure you are sitting there thinking “well, she has gone full on health nut on us.” While I do try to stick to Paleo as much as possible, I admit that I still enjoy {love, crave, desire…} sweets on a regular basis. I just went from having them almost every day to saving them for more of a special treat. Now, these dark chocolate sea salt caramelitas…I could eat these every day. I’d need an entirely new wardrobe filled with elastic waist pants but they are so good that I would never tire of them.
