Chocolate Mocha Almond Butter Cups

Chocolate Mocha Almond Butter Cups

Much like anything that involves melting chocolate in the microwave and then freezing it, this "recipe" should be included in a Paleo for Dummies handbook. I'm not sure that processes such as microwaving and freezing with zero leg work in between qualifies me as a stellar "chef"...but the ROI of said microwaving and freezing these simple ingredients will make you want to slap your grandma. That's a saying, right?

Almond Joys

Almond Joys

As a kid, I was always outraged when I drew Almond Joys out of trick or treat baskets on Halloween. I thought they were the worst. That was before I realized that coconut is in fact a magical fruit. Ironically, coconut has become a routine staple in my diet. I absolutely love it. It probably makes its way into at least two meals per day.

York Peppermint Patty Cups

York Peppermint Patty Cups

I would describe these cups as knock offs. But not the crappy, blatantly obvious knock offs that you find from a shady online website that may or may not be legal. More like the knock offs you find in the back, secretive alleys of China town. You know...the $50 Chanel knock off rather than the $10 one. Ok...too much digression. Back to the paleo point.

"Reese's" Easter Eggs

"Reese's" Easter Eggs

With Easter around the corner, I started thinking about all the Easter candy I would probably miss out on (or cheat with...). I don't know about you, but my favorite Easter treat by far is the Reese's Egg. Fine, there is no ingredient difference between a Reese's Egg and a standard Reese's cup...but there is something about the seasonal egg shape that makes the candy so much more satisfying. It's science. If you're presented with a Reese's Egg during Easter, you're pretty much obligated to eat it.
