Thanks again to AJ for being willing to “hold my feet”. You are the man. I’m just glad there are no photos or videos.
Yeah, well I just closed my eyes and let you do your thing.

Hey, I told a couple of people I’d post the link for the recipe for the cookies I brought in tonight. I shamelessly stole this link from Amy in the paleo food thread. I made all 3 kinds and I think the banana nut were my personal fav!
Another delicious paleo friendly (and super easy!) desert – no bake sugar, dairy, and gluten free apple pie. I’ve made it for gluten sensitive friends a couple times before and it’s always a big hit.
Thanks Teri, curious how do you melt coconut oil? I thought it was already in melted form. Never used this ingredient.
Oooh I’ve been trying to find/think up an apple or berry crumble that is (strict) Paleo but this raw apple ‘pie’ looks amazing!
