Paleo-Garlic-and-Sun-dried-Tomato-Hummus-perchancetocook-2

Good news… you can still have hummus while following the Paleo diet! All you have to do is replace chickpeas with roasted cauliflower. Thank goodness for cauliflower, right?! It’s a magic vegetable. I’ve used it to make Alfredo, cauliflower rice, pizza crust, and hummus. What would us Paleo people do without it?!

Fact: you can never have too many grain-free banana bread recipes. There are just too many variations to be made! Like this Blueberry Chia Banana Bread, for example. It’s soft, scrumptious, and full of bursts of juicy blueberries on the inside, and it has a lovely hard crust on the outside (thanks to the chia seeds).

The mixture of banana and blueberry flavors is on point. Which is super convenient, considering blueberries have been on sale at the store lately. :) Read more

Paleo-Caesar-Salad-dressing-perchancetocook

I’ve been tasting, trying, and comparing different caesar salad dressings for the past few weeks now. My taste buds have been searching for the key to the distinct tangy flavor of caesar salad dressing. I thought that I’d figure it out rigghhht quick, but then I realized that maybe there is no “key”…

Despite the garlicy, lemony, and creamy flavors that unite most caesar salad dressings, they can still all taste SO different.

DIY Dried Fruit and Chocolate Lollipops (paleo, GF)

DIY-Dried-Fruit-and-Chocolate-Lollipops-paleo-perchancetocook-9

I recently ran out of space on computer because there were thousands of food photos in my iPhoto. Food blogger problems… haha. My only external hard drive was already full because I recently filled it with 15,000 photos from college and the following years after… (maybe I just have a photo problem?), so I bought another hard drive. In the process of transferring photos onto my hard drive, I started looking at old photos, which basically lead to everything taking much longer than it should have. Hours longer, actually.   Read more

Almond Flour Muffin Roundup!! (All Paleo, All GF, All Delicious)

I was cleaning out the pantry the other day (spring cleaning) and I found quite a few lost and forgotten items. Some of them I had to toss because they lived long past their due dates, but some of them were goods that I could immediately make good use of! I love when that happens. :) I found a bag of dried figs that had fallen behind a box, a small bag of tapioca flour that was hidden among the dried fruit and nut section, and an extra bag of almond flour. Score! Read more
