It's the end of an incredibly busy**read stressful!!** week. Today, instead of sharing something I've whipped up, I'll direct you to some talented blogging cooks so you can check out a few of my favorite new things!
First up, bone broth-two words I never would have put together pre W30. There are a million different ways to make broth, but my favorite has to be the super simple recipe from Nom Nom Paleo. Michelle uses a pressure cooker and flavors the broth with apple cider vinegar and Red Boat fish sauce and around an hour later you've got a pot of steaming hot, super nutritious broth that you can drink straight from a mug-it's like a warm hug, on the inside. You can use it as a base for soup, much better than even the organic broths you find in the store. You can splash it on your kale while it steam sautés. I store and freeze mine in mason jars. When my little dude came down with a cold this week it was #1 on my list of things to do Tuesday morning while he sat, sniffling, on the couch!
Next up, my new obsession, cauliflower! I've always liked cauliflower but I must admit I preferred it smothered in "cheese" sauce. Recently I've discovered roasted cauliflower, cauliflower rice and my new personal favorite mashed cauliflower. All three of these recipes link to the amazing Melissa Joulwan's site who is the author of one of my all time favorite cook books: Well Fed. I have yet to make a recipe from her book that didn't turn out fantastic!

Finally what's a grain free momma supposed to make for a sweet treat? While there's no shortage of tasty paleoified dessert recipes, I'm a big fan of these simple coconut flour biscuits. They're not too sweet, mix up super quick and easy with a hand held blender and bake up perfectly moist and delicious! They were the centerpiece of last night's dessert, topped with fresh strawberries and bananas, we never even missed the whipped cream!
Happy eating to all and to all a good life!
