Favorite Recipes from the Archives

Let’s face it, you rarely go past the third page on my blog. I don’t blame you. It’s a lot to look at. It can be overwhelming. How to decide. You get distracted by the desserts when you’re looking for a sugar free quick dinners. Or get distracted by the annoying stories that, even though you kind of hate, it’s hard to not read. It’s like watching The Bad Girls Club. You hate it, but you love it all at the same time. I actually really hate that show, it’s pretty much the worst. So I hope my blog doesn’t feel like that show. A woman yesterday let me know that she felt that way about my blog. Bummer.

Anywho, I’ve made a list of some of my favorite recipes from that past so you don’t miss out on any breakfast, dinners, snacks, and even desserts. I sometimes forget about some of these recipes until I check out my Pinterest page. Then once I read my old posts, lots and lots of memories come back. I used to take a whole lot of pictures on my phone. And practically in the dark. I’m not exactly the best photographer nowadays, but at least I know how to find the light. Back to the point, don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Or me by the rude things I say constantly. Just try the recipe! Do it!! Click the link right underneath your “favorite” picture!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Holy Moly…Banana Bread French Toast. The purist in me rebels but damn it that sounds so awesome. I have made a fair few of your recipes but somehow I never saw that one.

    I want it for breakfast now…

  2. Thank you for bringing these recipes up from the archives! I already know I need that artichoke lemon pesto thing in my mouth pretty much immediately — and that burger with the pineapple on it looks amazing.

    As an aside, I have never understood why people take the time to tell someone about how much they hate them. What is that about? You hate something on the Internet? Good thing you have the option of ignoring it! UGH.

  3. First of all, I love your writing. All the paleo police and people that don’t understand humor can suck it. But, your light and crispy vanilla protein waffles should definitely be on here. They are AMAZING. I put them in the freezer and when I need quick breakfast pop them in toaster. Sometimes I put a leftover chicken breast in the middle and a little syrup. Yes….chicken and waffles. Anyways- you’re beast.

  4. Thanks for posting this, there are several recipes that I did not have and would like to try! I have your book and love the recipes in there, its my favorite book and I recommend it all the time!

  5. I don’t understand why people take the time to tell someone how much they don’t like them. So much negativity. If you don’t have anything nice to stay.. then just shut up! People suck!

    Meanwhile, I think you are awesome.. and love your blog. Confession.. I may have skimmed through all most all your blog posts.. like past the 3 pages. I love all your recipes that I have tried!

    Bonus, I have all the ingredients for loaded turkey stuffed twice baked sweet potatoes!

  6. Now wait a minute!! You’ll need another best of post JB because this one is missing Cilantro Salmon Burgers & the very best Bacon Wrapped Chicken Skewers with Mango Drizzle!!!

  7. the most fun will be going back to read all these posts. you’re hilarious lady! i wish i could find someone to make all of these for me…mmmmhmmmm then i’d have fun eating them too 🙂 sadly my kitchen skillzzz are nonexistent

  8. You were the first blog that convinced me I could do this whole paleo thing so looking through your old blog posts conjures up memories for me too weirdly enough.

    Thank you for all your hard work, hilarious stories and being a real enough human being to not hide the fact that you eat the “bad stuff”. You coulda hid it to keep up a persona but instead you chose to be real. Appreciated!

  9. OMG some of these look freaking amazing! Having your Chicken Tortilla Soup for dinner with some baked Plaintain chips tonight for dinner. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

  10. So over the last couple weeks I’ve gone through your blog, from the oldest to the most recent and read EVERY post! IswearI’mnotweird/nolife. You’re inspiring me to go paleo 100%, and I’m also learning a lot from you. And you’re super funny and I like you (in a friendly way) and gah you’re just awesome.

    Sooo yeah thanks for your blog!

    BTW your hummingbird loaf I constantly make as muffins and there is ALWAYS some in my freezer for when I need a quick breakfast. Favorite recipe EVER 😀

  11. Just wanted to let you know that your website is my favorite paleo site! The majority of the meals I make come from your site. In fact, right now in my fridge, I have meat crust quiche, Italian meatloaf, bacon apple chutney burgers and the new Asian zucchini noodle recipe!

    Don’t let strangers who are most likely jealous of you bother you a bit!

  12. I love your blog! I think your hilarious and you say what you feel. You also have amazingly delicious recipes that really make me love paleo ( and I agree that everyone should find their own balance with paleo and non paleo). So let the hatas hate!

  13. Haters gonna hate – just keep doing what you’re doing. I originally started following for the recipes, but now I check in to read your posts. Recipes, too? Yes, please. Keep rockin it!

  14. I made your coffee caramel bars last night for the first time in a long time. They’re SO GOOD and so easy to throw together!! Thanks for all the hard work you do, providing us with tasty tasty recipes!!

  15. Frankly, even though I own your book, and have ordered your next book (can’t wait!), I read your blog for your musings and writing. I think you should write a memoir.

  16. Ok, I will say that when I read my very first post of your blog and you said “totes,” I was thrown off. However, some of my best friends say it, so I can’t judge! Your website is amazing and a great transition from my recent whole45 experience back into food that resembles what I love to eat. Thanks for your dedication and your honesty and for being you!

    I thought I read somewhere that you’re from/living in the Denver area? If so, would love your suggestions for good eats in the area as we are going on vacation there this week! Thanks!!

    1. Hey Lauren!! Here are my favorites (warning: these places are mostly gluten free, not strict paleo FYI) – My favorite paleo bakeries include Sugar Bake Shop (they usually only have one paleo treat per day) and Mmm…Coffee which is a strictly paleo bakery and eatery. My favorite gluten free food truck is Quiero Arepas which is venezuelan food and completely amazing. My favorite restaurants include Cuba Cuba (cuban food), Izakaya Den (sushi), Park Burger (american), Limon (south american food), Snooze (naughty food but gf brunch options too), Moontower Tacos and Pinche Tacos (gf with corn tortillas), Fruition (fancy restaurant), Root Down, and Linger.

  17. I came for the recipes, but I stay for the stories. Please continue to keep it real and honest. Your recipes are my favorite. I can’t wait to get my hands on your cookbooks!

  18. I just repined almost every recipe on here. I am so excited to try these recipes! Thanks for what you do! Also, making your blog fun by adding a bit of your life to every post. You’re awesome!

  19. You are amazing! I wish we were neighbors, or roommates, or sisters or something! Looking at this list it is funny how many of them are “my” recipes now. You have completely changed the way I cook. Actually making the Chicken Bacon Alfredo as I write this.

  20. Thank you for this! I often have wondered, what recipes would you recommend most highly when making food for non-Paleo people? If you felt like putting it into a post, you could do different ones for different seasons/group sizes. 🙂

  21. Since I’ve stumbled on your site (10 months ago) I live and swear by your jambalaya. I always make tons and keep some in my freezer. So good!

  22. I love all of your recipes and got your first cookbook on my Kindle last week. Everything is so good- I made the blackberry pork chops and jambalaya so far, yum. Trying to take a break from Paleo baking since I eat most of whatever I make in like 2 days, but can’ wait to try some of those recipes too. My friends at work stared at me with jealousy when I was eating the pork chop at lunch the next day after I made them, lol.

    Since I started reading your blog and doing Paleo last June 1st, I have lost 60 pounds. I hope you do a book signing in Atlanta. Any chance of that?
