The caveman diet. The Stone Age diet. Whatever you call it, the paleolithic diet is the high-protein eating plan that’s got a lot of people excited. Based on foods that were available to our ancient ancestors, the Paleo plan is credited with weight loss, reduced cholesterol levels, stabilized blood pressure and an increased sense of overall well-being. If you think the Paleo diet is super restrictive, you’re right. If you think this means you cannot tuck into a tasty dessert once in a while, please think again. As long as you make it with Paleo approved ingredients, you can end your evening meal with a decadently sweet treat.

My mom was a great cook. I sometimes wonder if she spent hours pouring over cookbooks when my brother and I were at school, searching for a new dessert she could whip up for after dinner that would have us groaning with delight. One of our absolute favorites was Mom’s Strawberry Cream Cheese Pretzel Cake recipe.
I have yet to meet someone who does not love some type of frozen treat on a hot summer day like ice cream or sherbert. With temperatures in the 90s this week, I think it’s about time we whip up some Creamy Berry Ice Cream in our food processor! I would like to thank Nancy from I MADE THIS DISH for another absolutely delicious recipe to share with our readers!
In honor of National Cookie Day, we are sharing some of my Mom and Nana’s favorite Thanksgiving and Christmas cookie recipes today. This next one up is the absolutely decadent Pecan Lassies. Talk about bite-size morsels of heaven in your mouth! I have to tell you right now, the picture doesn’t do them justice. In order to really appreciate these little treats, you need the ones warm out of the oven with little bits of that brown sugar, buttery goodness oozing down the outside of the crust to truly appreciate these little guys!
Once November 1st came around each year, our home went into full-blown holiday mode when I was growing up. Mom would decorate the house for fall and Thanksgiving, there were delicious aromas to greet us every day when we arrived home from school. If she wasn’t baking up some delicious homemade pumpkin pies, then she was baking zucchini bread or making cookies. I identify each of those smells with home and the holidays, and I hope to be able to continue that tradition this year.
Our family loves cheesecake ANYTHING and when mom would make her infamous miniature cheesecakes during the holidays, us kids could not wait to get home and devour an entire tray of them for ourselves! Mom got to the point where she had to ration them out to us or there would have been none left for anyone else at all!
