Shutterbug Chef!

Super Bowl Sunday is February 4th!  Whether your team is in the big game this weekend or not, Super Bowl parties are usually fun!  This year, the game is in Minneapolis where the expected high temperature is 11 degrees and the low is -1!!  The Philidelphoia Eagles and The New England Patriots are probably ok with those extremely cold temperatures. Who do you like in this match-up?  I’d like to see The Eagles win! ( Gotta keep Casey happy!)  But the party food will be great and we will all be the winners!

Also, I am looking forward to watching the National Anthem, which always brings tears to my eyes!  Let’s hope Pink does this beautiful song justice, as I think she will! Oh, and Justin Timberlake as the halftime entertainment should be awesome, too!  So, let’s talk party food: Continue reading

For Christmas this year my kids gave me a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker I had wanted one and planned to try my “paleo” ice cream recipes in it hoping that somehow they would be creamier, less icy.  So far, I have tried a couple of clean recipes but I am still trying to work on not only the texture but also the flavor.  I don’t want all ice creams being based on coconut or bananas, even though they are very good, too.

Paleo Brownies For Clean Eaters

December 8th is National Brownie Day!!!  And, it is Friday this year!!!!  Easy enough….let’s do this!

Magic-Brownies-2

Because, what I really want is BROWNIES ….. but for clean eaters.

I am…weak.  At least when it comes to chocolate.  Or dessert.  Especially chocolate dessert. I want brownies for clean eaters.

And it is all because of Lindsay at Pinch of Yum.  I blame her for my appetite and my cravings.  You see, she posted a 6 ingredient espresso brownie recipe  that I read and HAD TO HAVE IT!  🙂  However, I need this to be a PALEO brownie!  As in no grains, no dairy, no refined sugar and nothing artificial.  But it must taste great!!  A few changes and I made it happen!

So, my dilemma is solved as I have decided to post 2 great brownie recipes that paleo or clean eaters can indulge in without guilt. Yes, brownies for clean eaters, too.

Happy National Brownie Day!! Continue reading
