Carolina-Style Paleo BBQ Sauce

Happy National BBQ Day! If grilling, smoking, or BBQ anything is your jam, you probably already know that every region has their own style. I like most of them, but my favorite is definitely that yellow mustard vinegar BBQ sauce the Carolinas are known for. Even before food was really my “thing,” that was always […]

2Towns Cider: Ginja’d Onion Jam

I recently had the pleasure of taking a very long drive down to Corvallis to meet some of the lineup at 2 Towns Cider. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you may already know it is pretty much my favorite cidery around. I genuinely enjoy their product, and the love grew even more when I […]

Paleo Essentials & Treats

I shared a similar post a while back about some of my must-have essentials before starting a Whole30, but I wanted to share more of what my “regular life” looks like. As of last summer, I aim to do about four Whole30’s per year and attempt a 90/10 paleo life the rest of the time […]

Fridge & Pantry Essentials: Whole30

In a previous post I mentioned that The Boyfriend and I (and 11 of our friends and relatives that I annoyed into submission) would be doing a Whole30 challenge this month. This is my second time doing it, and I had great results in terms of health and how I felt after the first one […]

This sauce is super quick to put together and goes great with any protein, but we’ve particularly enjoyed it with […]

Stomping Grounds: Five Minute Mustard

Mmmmustard. So yummy. So much sugar… at least, in all the good store-bought varieties, and I’ve had enough! It’s probably the easiest condiment to make, and yet it’s constantly packed full of sugar and other crap no one needs to eat. Enough sugar! Right, sorry for that little rant. Back to the mustard. This is, […]

Cocky Cajun Seasoning

Some of you may have noticed that I love my Cajun seasoning. I am on my third bottle of this pre-mixed stuff and I use it on practically everything… or at least I did. For whatever reason, checking out the label never crossed my mind before today and can you guess what I found? Sugar! […]

Clarified Ramp Butter

Ooh-la-la ramps are finally in season, but they’ll be gone before you know it! I ordered mine from FreshDirect and they look excellent, so today I’m going to try another First Attempt recipe of making clarified butter (also called Ghee). Us Slow-Carb kids aren’t really supposed to have dairy, but the clarifying process removes practically all the […]
