One of the biggest complaints we hear from people who are going gluten free is that they will miss all the breads and soft/fluffy textures of "baked goods"...enter this recipe for Sweet Potato Pancakes to shatter this notion. These pancakes are the perfect amount of sweet with an really nice soft texture. They are great for a Sunday morning breakfast...we love to have them during our "breakfast for dinner" nights. Enjoy!Read More
A lot of people think about eating clean as a "burden" or something that takes away all the good stuff. This recipe directly defies that notion...it has all the taste of those dirty foods, but is a clean and healthy snack. Something about football being on TV that causes us to make these...and we generally deliver on the urge. The interesting thing about them is how simple they are and how few the ingredients are...we have tried making buffalo wings with all kinds of crazy recipes and complicated ingredients, but good old Frank's Red Hot sauce seems to be the one that delivers best (and the ingredients are good to go)...we keep it Paleo by using Coconut oil. Thanks to Dianne "Meme" Morgan for inspiring this recipe!Read More
We've gotten really into plantains lately so this is the first of a few great recipes with them. A close friend of ours, Brittany Gonzalez, who owns La Banana Frita has inspired us with her amazing uses of plantains...if you live anywhere near CLE make sure to check her out. One of our favorite plantain dishes is hash browns...they are so quick and easy to make and you can serve with breakfast, lunch or dinner (or as a snack). For this recipe we kept it super simple, but feel free to try different spice/flavor combos to your liking.Read More
These biscuits are called "buttery" because a) they taste like butter and b) they have a lot of butter in them...both of which is a good thing. Obviously, like all things RALABALA, they are gluten-free.
A close friend of ours, Leezah Pratt, shared a version of this recipe with me a while back...I have been tweaking it to get it just the way I like and it's time now to share this with you...and now it's your turn to enjoy and share with your friends!Read More
Baaaaaacoooooooon! All you need to know about this chili is it has bacon...oh, and it's delicious! Yes, it's paleo, yes it has tons of protein, yes everyone will love it...and yes it has bacon!
Side note: the recipe won second place at the 4th Annual Findaway World Chili Cook Off. That means it was the best of all the losers, which is a pretty awesome honor. Enjoy!Read More
Why are these titled "smack"aroons? Because they are so stinking good you will want to "smack yo mama". These are so simple to make and are the perfect balance of moistness and sweet. If you haven't ever used vanilla bean seeds, you are in for a real treat...they add an amazing depth to the vanilla (and will not include added sugar, which most vanilla extracts do).Read More
Gluten free, grain free, dairy free, vegan, refined sugar free...and tastes like heaven! That doesn't happen often so better hold on to recipe. These are a crowd favorite in our house and when we bring them to parties...even people who don't typically eat Primal or Paleo love them.Read More
Sweet potatoes are full of vitamins and minerals, they are a great source of energy, and a carbohydrate that your body uses! Sweet potatoes aid in recovery and cell reproduction, these are the good potatoes, they are good carbs. They also go with everything... breakfast lunch and dinner wise. When we eat them for dinner one night, we will most likely heat them up in a skillet the following day with eggs. They are delicious no matter what... this is the way we LOVE our sweet potatoes!Read More
Growing up in an Italian home bread was a staple for most good meals (on the table and in the recipes)...and the term "breaking bread" had a special meaning to it, beyond just the food. I first learned about cooking Italian from my grandmother who spent hours preparing her feasts for the family to enjoy.Read More
