November Paleo Pen Pals: Chervil Spiced Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Stuffed Mushrooms

My Paleo Pen Pal this month was Jennifer of Alliefitfoodie.com. I was very excited when my package arrived (who doesn't love getting mail??) and hurriedly tore it open to see what was inside. What I found was a jar of dried chervil leaf! I have quite an extensive spice collection, but in all of my 32 years, I have never once used chervil leaf. I didn't even really know what it was or what type of cuisine you would use it in. A quick bit of Googling revealed that chervil is similar to parsley and often used in French cuisines. It can also be used to attract slugs, but that is neither here nor there.


My mind has been on holiday recipes lately so I decided to use the chervil in a stuffed mushroom appetizer recipe I have been working on. These mushrooms are stuffed with a delicious sun dried tomato pesto and baked until they are warm, roasty and toasty!

Paleo Veggie and Bacon Breakfast Pizza featured on PaleoHacks

I was recently asked to write a guest post for the PaleoHacks blog. I love PaleoHacks and turned to their site quite often when we first started cleaning up our diet. They have a friendly, knowledgeable, and sometimes funny, community of paleo and primal enthusiasts who can answer pretty much any question you have. I had a lot of questions in the beginning and PaleoHacks always helped me out with an answer. In the spirit of "hacks" I decided to share this tasty paleo breakfast pizza recipe. You can read the full post over on the PaleoHacks blog, or scroll down to get the recipe!

Save time and money this Thanksgiving with eMeals!

Save 30% with code Cyber

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you have probably heard me mention eMeals in the past. If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably even seen some of the simple and delicious meals I have made from their "caveman tested, mom approved" Paleo Meal Plan. I turn to eMeals week after week to take the guesswork out of dinner. Each week, they email me a meal plan, complete with recipes and grocery list, that I can use for the upcoming week. Now that I have been using the service for a while, I have found a few favorites that I keep coming back to, so I like to print out my meal plan each week and mark my favorite recipes so I can make them again.

Individual Grain Free Peach and Apricot Cobbler



So, have you ever made a pan of brownies, eaten half the batter out of the bowl and somehow the rest of the brownies mysteriously disappeared into your stomach before the night was over? Yeah, me neither. But, even if the thought to attack that bowl of cookie batter with a spoon has ever entered your head while baking, then this single serving dessert could save you a lot of guilt...and calories!
