Cinnamon Citrus Pork

Confessions of a paleo cook: I haven’t jumped on the Instant Pot bandwagon. (gasp) I’m not opposed to the contraption, just seriously lack the “latest kitchen gadget” gene. I don’t like having more stuff, even if it’s cooking related. I require a sharp knife, high-speed blender, and cast iron pan. The instant pot, while insanely helpful…

Crockpot Egg Casserole

I frequently get questions about breakfast. I guess our American breakfast culture hasn’t done much to encourage paleo-friendly type foods. Between breakfast cereal (Captain Crunch to Barbara’s Puffins), waffles, pancakes, grits, muffins (i.e. cake for breakfast… Jim Gaffigan anyone?!), donuts, scones, english muffins, and the ever-popular “toast”; its understandable that newbie Paleo followers have a hard time with their morning meal….
