It’s almost time for Turkey Day!!! But I got to cel­e­brate a lit­tle ear­ly this year. 🙂 My friend Can­dy host­ed a Wild Turkey night this past Sat­ur­day with a potluck Thanks­giv­ing din­ner and a whiskey tast­ing all in one! It was the per­fect Fall cel­e­bra­tion with friends. Many of my clos­est friends here in LA, well I con­sid­er them my LA fam­i­ly, and peo­ple I had nev­er met were both there. This is my favorite way to cel­e­brate Thansk­giv­ing! There’s noth­ing like meet­ing new peo­ple and wel­com­ing them Read more […]

I am a giant fan of cel­e­brat­ing Hal­loween but being out of town last week­end and just being too busy over­all I just couldn’t find the time to make a cos­tume this year, and the thought of going down to the West Hol­ly­wood parade just exhaust­ed me. I couldn’t think of a bet­ter way to spend Hollow’s Eve than bak­ing a Paleo Pump­kin Cake and enjoy­ing some deli­cious Ship­yard Pump­kin­head beer (not so Paleo but hey I got­ta live a lit­tle!). It was just what I need­ed and this Paleo Pumkin Cake turned out to Read more […]

In dream­ing about near­ing hol­i­day cel­e­bra­tions, par­tic­u­lar­ly, a Thanks­giv­ing feast, I got a seri­ous crav­ing for sweet pota­toes! While sweet pota­toes are a veg­gie that is def­i­nite­ly high­er on the glycemic index, they have tons of vit­a­mins and nutri­ents that still make it a viable Pri­mal or Paleo option, par­tic­u­lar­ly for those who are con­sis­tent­ly phys­i­cal­ly active. For more infor­ma­tion on the health ben­e­fits and vari­eties, vis­it this post on Mark’s Dai­ly Apple. I’m with Mark, if you can find the Read more […]

Fall Harvest Salad

Fall Harvest Salad

Amy one comments

As you know, I LOVE FALL FLAVORS! This year, I had my sec­ond annu­al Fall Din­ner Par­ty, this time com­plete with a Fall-themed beer pair­ing and tast­ing. I slimmed it down to three cours­es this time since we also were drink­ing some heavy beers. So check out the Menu: Fall Har­vest Sal­ad paired with my brother’s home-brewed Autumn Apple Ale But­ter­nut Squash Ravi­o­li in Sage Brown But­ter Sauce paired with Epic Brewery’s Pump­kin Porter Marsala Roast­ed Brisket with Car­mal­ized Onions and Crem­i­ni Mush­rooms Read more […]
