Cauliflower Pizza Crust!

Hi Everyone!

So i FINALLY hoped on the cauliflower pizza crust band wagon! 
My mom tried it out a bit ago, rant and raved about how good it was and sent me the recipe!
So i made it!

All i have to say is from now pizza crust's will be made out of cauliflower!!
It tastes so good!
My hubby even liked it!!

I was super surprised how easy it was!

I made a couple small changes in how i made the "dough" so of course change things to how you see fit.


1 head of cauliflower- you will only be using the flowering parts so make sure its a pretty good sized one.

3 Eggs. 

2 Cups Mozzarella cheese- I thought that 2 cups seemed a bit much, the hubby and i have been cutting out most dairy products for the last few weeks, so i only used about 3/4 -1 cup.

1 1/2 tsp dried herbs- (oregano, thyme, rosemary, Italian seasoning, anything you wanna add really) I skipped this step and it still turned out great!

A couple big pinches of salt- I skipped this step also.

You will wanna preheat the oven to 450 degrees at some point.

Next you will wanna chop up your cauliflower into chunks, no bigger then 2 inches.
Throw them in a pot or pan and boil them till nice and soft!

Once its nice and soft, drain as much of the water as you can and throw it in either a food processor or blender to get it nice and mushed up.
 I actually just used a fork and some elbow grease in a mixing bowl and it worked just fine!

So if you used a processor or blender, once nice and smooth looking, transfer to a mixing bowl and add the eggs, cheese and herbs!

When i finished mixing it all up, it still seemed a bit to thin so i added about 1/4 cup of coconut flour to thicken it up a bit more and it was perfect! 

Mix together well!

Next just lay it out on a baking sheet, make sure its greased up good!
Also make sure its nice and even.

Bake that for about 18-20 mins, more if you like a crispy crust, which we do! 
So i cooked it a few minutes longer.

Remove from oven and top with any toppings you would like!

  We did pizza sauce, turkey bacon, spinach, onions, mushrooms on the hubby's side, tomatoes and a little bit of mozzarella cheese!

Once you are done adding your toppings, put it back into the oven for about 10-12 minutes, just enough time to cook some veggies and melt the cheese!


Cut and serve!


The crust was thick enough to be able to pick the pieces up and eat it, but i ate it with a fork still, toppings don't fall off that way!

If you are a pizza lover, like me, and don't wanna ruin your healthy eating to much, then this recipe is a muuust!! 

Hope you enjoyed the post and be sure to let me know if you try it!!

Thanks so much for reading and keep an eye out for more posts to come!

Banana Muffins! Paleo approved, No Added Sugar and No Grains!

Good morning!

Hope you are all having a wonderful day! 

It is breakfast time here in my house so i thought it would be the perfect time to share my go to breakfast of the past few days!

Banana Muffins! 

Paleo friendlyNo added sugar and No grains!

The recipe i used was actually a banana bread recipe that one of my friends shared on Facebook! 
But i turned it into muffins because i like eating them better!

YUUMMM these are so good!
Love eating one for dessert after dinner or with a big cup of coffee in the now!

They are super quick and super easy to make!

I have made them a few times already since finding the recipe and will be making more soon i am sure!

Ok, enough jibber jabber, recipe time!


very ripe bananas, mashed! The ripeness should be to the point of almost being thrown out or thrown in the freezer! The riper the bananas, the sweeter the muffins!

1/3 Cup Coconut Oil, Melted

4 Eggs

1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract

1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon

1/2 Cup Coconut Flour (cannot be substituted for any other flour) < that's what the recipe said, that's all i ever use so i haven't challenged that! Let me know if you do and how it turns out!

1 Heaping tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp Salt (optional, i omitted it and it turned out great!)

Optional add-ins: Chocolate Chips, nut's, raisins, fruit! Anything really!

If you do decide to make this as a bread, i would strongly suggest adding some sort of add in, its pretty thick, almost cake like.

If you read my last recipe post then you know i don't really follow step by step directions on what ingredients go into the bowl at what time when making something like this...i just throw it all in and mix!

No problemo!

Cook at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes if you are making bread and about 25 minutes if you are making muffins.

Don't forget to grease that pan!

The recipe makes about a dozen, i like my muffins to be a little bigger cause i am usually eating them for a meal in the morning, so mine made 10.

If you happen to only have not so ripe bananas and still wanna make this, i would add in 1/3 cup of some honey or maple syrup to sweeten it up! Should still turn out good!

Hope you give this recipe a try and enjoy it as much as my family has!
Let me know if you do!

Have a great rest of the day and keep an eye out for my next post!

Paleo Butterscotch Chip Cookies! Dairy Free, Flour Free and Gluten Free!

Helloooo out there!

So today i am posting an amazingly delicious cookie recipe with you all!

These are Paleo approved, Dairy free, Gluten free and Flour free!

Lately my husband and i have been following the Paleo eating life style, as close to it as we can anyways! Sometimes you just gotta work with what you got. 
We have only been eating this way for a few weeks now, but i can already tell we are going to be sticking to it, we are loving it!!

That being said, i am still a sucker for desserts, especially cookies! 
So i went on the hunt for cookie recipes that would be Paleo friendly and not taste like i was eating dirt!
Its really not that much to ask for, right?!

Amongst my couple hours of searching (i was on a very important mission) i came across a fantastic blog that had tons of great recipes! 
THIS blog is where i found these amazing cookies!
Go check it out, you will looove!

Ok so back to the cookies! 
I did change a couple things in the recipe, so of course change it up if you feel its needed as well!

As you can see, there are only 6 cookies in this picture, the recipe made about 2 dozen...needles to say, they are a huge hit!!

I am lucky i got these couple of pictures before we ate them all up!
I will be for sure making these again!! 

The Recipe!

2 2/3 Cups Almond Flour (not packed down)
1 tsp Baking Soda
2 tsp Pure Vanilla
1/2 Cup Pure Maple Syrup (i wasn't going to spend almost $10 on maple syrup that's packed full of sugar, so i just used my sugar free regular syrup that i already had, worked great! You can also try honey!)
3 Stevia Packets (optional)
2 Large eggs
1/2 Cup Coconut Oil, Melted
1 1/2 Cups Butterscotch Chips (the original recipe called for chocolate chunks but i love butterscotch more! You can use any kind that you like, or even nuts or berries!

If you find the dough not quite thick enough, you can add more Almond Flour or add in some Coconut Flour like i did, i added about 2-3 TBS and was perfect!

I'm terrible at following step by step directions for baking things like i just threw everything into a bowl and stirred it up!

Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
Make sure you grease that baking sheet good!

Like i said above, this recipe made about 2 dozen cookies, but they were on the small side, so it may make less if yours are bigger.

The blog i got this recipe from has a lot more pictures and goes way more in depth on the directions, if you find yourself needing that!

HERE is the direct cookie post!

I also tried the tip that she recommends about freezing the cookies...
 It is soooooo good!
I like a pretty firm cookie, and this recipe makes a pretty soft and chewy cookie, which is great but i needed a bit more firmness, popping them in the freezer did the trick!!
 It didn't freeze freeze them at all, just made them cold and a bit more firm!


Thanks so much for reading! 
Hope you enjoyed the passing along of a great recipe!
Be sure to let me know if you try this recipe out and how you liked it!

Homemade All Purpose Cleaner!

Hi Hi!

Today's post is going to be my all purpose cleaner recipe!

If you are like me and have been trying to replace chemical filled cleaners in your home with non chemical or less chemical filled ones, then this post if for you!

 I have been using this stuff for a couple months now and am loving it! 

Ok, so what you will need is:

Not pictured:
Spray bottle (preferably a glass one but all i had was plastic)
and Water!

That's it!

Now the alcohol is optional, i add a splash of it because i am a huge germaphobe when it comes to cleaning, well in general really, but specially when it comes to the cleanliness of my kitchen and bathroom! 
This stuff works great without it tho, so don't worry if you aren't comfortable adding it.

The stuff in the mason jar is castile soap.

Mix into the spray bottle:

*1 Cup white vinegar (if you only have apple cider vinegar, that will work too)
*2 TBS Liquid castile soap.
*Splash of  rubbing alcohol (optional)
*About 20-30 drops of an essential oil of your choice. The one i used was tangerine.
*Fill the rest of the bottle with water.

And your're done!

You should give it a couple shakes before using and you should also store in a cool dark place (essential oils oxidize in sunlight)

I looove cleaning with this stuff!
It smells amazing and works so good!
I also find myself using at least half the amount of product as i would with a store bought cleaning spray!

If you have little kiddos in the house, here are a few essential oil choices that are "generally recognized as safe" for internal use by the FDA. 


Hope you all enjoyed the post!
I love sharing my recipes with you all!
Be sure to let me know if you end up trying it out and how you like it!

Thanks so much for reading!
