I’ve been meaning to share these Cinnamon Rolls for a long time now. I can’t wait any longer!!!
Eat like a caveman!!
A dear friend of mine and her kiddos came over to hang out recently. They implemented the Paleo Diet with their family a while back and, when I knew they were staying for lunch, I thought I’d try my hand at some Paleo recipes!
There are some things we can’t remember about our childhood and some memories that are crystal clear. There are also those moments that were captured on a video and we, after watching that video, adopted the memory as our own, even if we were too young to actually remember the occasion. Or perhaps a story was told so many times that we feel we remember being there.
One memory of mine happened more often than not on Saturday mornings during my childhood. My dad would fire up the griddle, melt some butter, and cook up a big stack of pancakes for my brothers and I. Maple syrup was a must. No substitutes would do.
When I lived in Chicago, one of my favorite things was the coming of Spring. Thousands of tulips were planted in the downtown area where we lived. You couldn’t turn a corner without running into a bed of freshly planted blooms. Finally… winter was OVER!!! Now living in Phoenix winter is over all too fast, but I still love that initial weather change from the “cold” to warm with a cool breeze. It’s short-lived here… but I still enjoy it… especially since I know it’s the final breath of fresh, cool air before the intense summer heat comes upon us. Then you’ll find me by the pool!
Because it’s Valentine’s Day… I felt the urge to say hello.
And to say I love ya.
And, while I’m at it, I decided to share this smoothie recipe with you.
What? I’m serious. Seriously… grilled cheese.
And yes, there IS in fact JAM in the recipe.
Listen, if you’re a mom, you know there are moments of desperation when you would try anything to get lunch together, right?
Am I wrong?
Okay, so it’s not your typical grilled cheese but there is cheese in it and it is grilled… cheese + grilled = GRILLED CHEESE… at least in my recipe-writing it does. 🙂
Oh yes, and if you’re opposed to the idea of frozen waffles… you might as well just stop reading right now.
Ricotta & Jam Grilled Cheese with Fresh Strawberries!!!
Just try to tell me that doesn’t look good…
