OK....this was one of those dishes that is soooo yum yum!! What could be better than roasted sweet potatoes? I will tell you/ add a bit of bacon and onion to the mix! Serves 3
I used 2 large sweet potaotes
one slice of raw bacon cut up
1 small onion
salt to taste
Throw in a pan. Spritz with olive oil and back at 400 for about 45 minutes turning once or twice. Cook until the bacon is crisp and potatoes are done.

I found this recipe here http://bravoforpaleo.com/2013/07/03/fudgy-brownie-recipe/
However I cooked it in a slightly narrower pan and forgot the vanilla!
- 4 large pastured eggs
- 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4- 1/3 cup maple syrup (I used the 1/3)
- 1/3 cup extra virgin coconut oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (I think I forgot to add this and guess what--still tasty!)
- Preheat oven to 350.(325 if glass)
- Mix ingredients in a large bowl with a mixer or KitchenAid.
- Pour in 4 x 8 loaf pan. (Mine was a bit smaller)
- Bake for 20-25 minutes. (don't over cook!! or it will be dry!!)
- Let cool before eating, or place in fridge until cool (about 10 min).
Go to her link for the reviews on this. Some added stuff to it. I liked it just as is, but you have to be very careful not to overcook it or it will be dry. NOTE --if using glass pan use a lower temp--I did mine at 325--I did lightly grease it with coconut oil). You still want it a bit gooey when testing with a tooth pick so it will not be dry. I did it so the toothpick was with just a bit still sticking.
I really love this quick salad. Good for snacking.
your favorite blue cheese or ranch dressing
Just cut the lettuce into wedges --as many as desired. Place in individual bowls and sprinkle with tomatoes, blue cheese and dressing.
This was so tasty. I found the idea here http://www.kalynskitchen.com/2013/02/baked-eggs-mushrooms-parmesan.html
I had started this recipe and then realized I could not cook it in the oven as she described because I had some yogurt making going on in my oven.
I ended up cooking it in my iron skillet and then covering it to complete the cooking of the egg ; it was delicious.
Mushrooms/ any kind and amount you desire. I think I had bella
coconut oil/ or whatever
egg--the amount you want/ I made one
salt and pepper
I cooked the mushrooms until tender with a bit of coconut oil and getting the nice brown look. I made a hole in the center and dropped the egg adding salt and pepper and sprinkling with Parmesan. Then I covered the skillet with a top and turned it on a low type setting for about ten minutes until the egg was as desired.
