photo 2Let’s start with donuts.  Generally speaking, I am not a gimmicky-kitchen-item kind of girl.  But I’ve seen a lot of bloggers I trust using the[amazon_link id=”B0073W5ZMQ” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ] Babycakes[/amazon_link] donut maker for GF or paleo-style donut treats.  I thought donut making would be a fun activity and that the finished product would be an awesome lunchbox treat.

We made these amazing Paleo Coconut Donuts from Making the World Cuter.  We coated them in some melted chocolate chips and sprinkled dye-free sprinkles on them.  The kids were beside themselves.  The recipe is super, super simple and the Babycakes could not be easier to operate.  I give the device and the recipe two thumbs way, way up!

Are you intrigued by the idea of “going Paleo” but worried that you can’t afford going whole hog?  Sarah of The Paleo Mom wrote a fantastic piece this week walking folks through the key considerations when it comes to Paleo when grassfed and organic are not viable options.

How cool would it be to cure your very own bacon?

I will likely never make these gorgeous Boston Cream Pie Cupcake Bites, but they bring to mind a time when my mom absolutely slaved in the kitchen one Friday night to make me a BCP.  It was so fantabulous.

Have you seen [amazon_link id=”193660812X” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Kelly Brozyna’s chocolate cookbook[/amazon_link]?  Give it a peek and then go make her Chocolate Pie with a Raw “Graham Cracker” Crust.

This “risotto” is made from pumpkin.  No, it doesn’t just contain pumpkin.  It is pumpkin.  And it looks terrific. I just love inventive recipes!

Primally Inspired gives us a glimpse into her makeup bag.  I’ve been inspired to try some of the 100% Pure products and so far I am beyond happy with them.  The [amazon_link id=”B003N4ST94″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]mascara[/amazon_link] and [amazon_link id=”B004BUY5RY” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]foundation[/amazon_link] are divine.  And, the price points blow me away.  With the high quality ingredients they use, I expect them to cost twice as much as they do.

Finally, I made the sesame orange chicken recipe from [amazon_link id=”1936608367″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Danielle Walker’s Against All Grain[/amazon_link] cookbook this week.  It’s done in the slow cooker and come together in a snap.  I omitted the nightshades (tomato paste and some pepper) and while I know the flavor and texture profile had to have been different from Danielle’s original dish, my family still gobbled it down.

“This is the most awesome thing I’ve ever eaten,” the eldest, W, exclaimed.

My only trouble was that I should have doubled the recipe.  I would kill for leftovers!
