Beyond Bacon Review and Giveaway! Wahoo

July 2, 2013  |  Food, Life  |  Share

I was able to help The Paleo Parents test out some of their recipes for the book, so I have been excited for a long long time to receive a copy of this book. And wholly pig they did not disappoint. This is way more than I expected.  The recipes alone are worth the price of the book. But the recipes aren't all that they provide you with. The book starts off with a foreword by none other than Joel Salatin. If you don't know who Joel is, Google it. You will love him, I guarantee it. Then Stacey and Matt layout the whole process of the pig. From why you should focus on pasture raised pig, what cuts to get to the sciencey side of benefits of the pork to the so called Hazards of pork. The most informative part for me was the basics section. How to smoke pork, how...

Simple Side Dish. Love Asparagus.

April 27, 2011  |  About  |  Share

This is a great, quick and easy side dish. Bacon Covered Asparagus Ingredients: Asparagus (Ends chopped off) 1/2 of an Onion Chopped (Shallots are good too) 4 Pieces of Bacon 3 Cloves of Garlic Juice from 1/2 a Lemon Coconut Oil Olive Oil Salt n Pepper First you want to start cooking your bacon in a pan. We will use the leftover grease. Then start boiling some water to cook the asparagus in. Once the water boil add the asparagus for only 4-5 minutes. Just until it becomes bright green. Strain and run under cold water to stop it from cooking anymore. Once the bacon is done, set aside. Add chopped onion and garlic to the bacon grease. I usually like to add about a tablespoon of coconut oil here. This is optional. I like to make this a little creamier and love the taste. Once the onion is translucent add in chopped up bacon. Then add the asparagus. Top with...

These Brussel Sprouts are Really Good!

April 10, 2011  |  Food  |  Share

We are back from vacation. We were in Arizona for a little over a week. It was so nice to get some time away with family and to just relax. I had plans of blogging from vacation, but let's be honest. I just wanted to relax. So I am back and have plans to start posting more here. Not every post will be a recipe and the posts will be a little small sometimes but more than just once a week. I hope I can stick with this goal cause things are more hectic around our household than they have ever been. I know a lot of people think brussel sprouts are gross. I was one of them. But now that I love to cook and experiment I have opened my taste buds to so many foods that I used to hate. I eat at least half an avocado a day and...
