Easy Tuna Salad with Basil (Mayo-free)

It was way past lunch time, and I was starving! I needed to throw something together and wasn’t in the mood to spend a long time in the kitchen. I had a can of tuna in the pantry, leftover tahini dressing from last night’s salad, a new jar of Bubbie’s pickle relish, and some fresh […]

Paleo Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies for Dad! (Gluten-free)

These cookies don’t need a long intro because, heck, they speak for themselves. Chocolate, bacon, coconut? I even managed to use my leftover almond pulp from the almond milk I made earlier in the week. I simply stored it in the freezer. When I was ready to use it, I defrosted it and added it […]
