Pistachio Date Truffles

These little date balls are really good.  I don't like to eat a lot of dates because the sugar in them really gets me wound up.  But on occasion or when you need to take something to a social event these little things work great!  Pistachios are a very beautiful nut as well.  They remind me of fall. These only have 5 ingredients and you will need a food processor. 1 cup Pistachios, unsalted and raw 10-15 Dates 1/8 tsp vanilla extract, or to taste Salt, to taste (just a small pinch will do) Cinnamon, to taste (just a small pinch will do) Add the pistachios to the food processor and chop up into very fine small pieces.  It is possible...

Paleo Pad Thai, Kelp Noodles

We recently discovered a great tasting kelp noodle.  We had bought some a few years ago and they tasted like the bottom of a boat.  But these new ones were great.  I actually bought them off of Amazon.  I will put a picture of the package at the bottom of the post. We have made two meals with them so far.  They have the look and feel of glass noodles.  The first thing we made was just some leftovers from xmas.  We ate crab on xmas so I took all of the shells from that meal and made a broth.  We sauteed someveggies and used the leftover crab meat and crab broth.   We also made a Pad Thai a few...

GAPS & Paleo Pancakes

Everyone has there favorite carb meal that they hate to give up when they start living a grain free life. One of my favorites was pancakes.  I love them smothered in butter and sweet maple syrup.

Food Storage, Frozen Fruit Ice Cream

Sometimes kitchen work can be long, monotonous, and boring.  But if you want to make large amounts of meals or preserve food for the winter sometimes you have to put in long shifts.  This past fall we bought a bunch of peaches and one night I noticed them getting ready to spoil so that meant an impromptu spontaneous long kitchen session late at night.  I was cutting peaches for almost 2 hours.  But it was worth it.  We pull them out sometimes to make smoothies or frozen fruit ice cream.  The frozen fruit ice cream is just frozen fruit, coconut milk, vanilla extract, and honey if you want it really sweet.  I just put all the liquids in the blender...
