  Here's another Winter installment for the Great Gluten Free Grains Series. Although, with the latest California weather, it feels much more like Spring.

  Who says pumpkin is just for Fall?! So I may have stretched this year's Paleo Pumpkin Spice season a little long, but I had to make up for missing last year. And in my opinion, there can never be too much pumpkin! This Paleo Pumpkin Bread recipe is a great treat to make just for having around the house.
