Bacon Avocado Crostini

**I know we usually do Paleo Mondays but, to be honest, vacation kicked my butt! So, enjoy this delicious crostini recipe instead and we’ll get back to the paleo goodness next week!**

So, we totally buy our avocados at Costco. When you have a five year old who eats 1-2 per day, you need to buy in bulk. But, sometimes he just isn’t feeling it and we are left with a bunch of avocados and no idea what to do with them. We can only eat so much guacamole after all. I was having friends over recently and decided to put them to good use by making bacon avocado crostini.

Peach Prosciutto Bites

Are you tired of my peach obsession yet? Between pizza, soup and a crescent ring, I can see how it might be starting to get a tad old. BUT, I have the most amazing recipe that is going to make you grab your phone to schedule an end of summer party just so you can make these peach prosciutto bites to serve it at. Seriously, they are THAT good.

Paleo Chicken Zucchini Fritters

Happy Paleo Monday! I actually started Whole30 with one of my coworkers so I’ll be doing lots of Paleo days this month. Of course, I still want delicious food to eat too even though I am limited what I am eating throughout the month. Paleo chicken zucchini fritters are a great way to get the feel of a burger without eating a burger. 

Chicken Zucchini Fritters are absolutely delicious. Bonus: these are totally paleo and Whole30 compliant.

Are you excited about all of the peaches you see at the store and farmer’s market? After waiting for what seemed like forever for peach season to arrive, I have been totally digging it. From pizza to appetizers, I have added peaches into lots of different recipes. My latest: a roasted peach soup.

Roasted Peach Soup is the perfect summer recipe!

BLT Bruschetta

Hey y’all! It’s me again, Allyson from Domestic Superhero, with a fun recipe for BLT Bruschetta for all of Shannah’s readers!

Creamy BLT Bruschetta - only a handful of fresh ingredients and seriously delicious!

Now, this recipe was kind of thrown together last minute, and then I started wondering why I didn’t think of it before. I mean, everyone goes crazy over bacon, and this spin on traditional bruschetta is just so easy and tasty! The sauce here is clutch, too, because it really brings all the ingredients together. The juicy tomatoes (Shannah’s favorite!), crispy bacon, and cool lettuce just make this BLT Bruschetta incredibly delicious. Then, you put it on top of a crunchy toasted slice of baguette and dress it with a cool tangy sauce – BAM – the perfect appetizer!

Paleo Avocado Toast

You guys…it is Paleo Monday! For me that it is totally a thing as I reset after my free eating weekends and get back on track for my week of paleo eats. Today, I am sharing with you one of my current snack obsessions. This paleo avocado toast is so amazingly good that you are going to want to devour it even if you aren’t following the paleo guidelines for food. So, maybe we should just call this the best snack…ever.

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!

Easy and delicious tropical guacamole

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.

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!
