Paleo Tortillas using yucca and plantain. I grew up eating yucca and plantain but it's been years. My dr wants me on a paleo diet for a while so this is going in my tool box!
Crispy Swedish Pancakes [I'm off to make these right now!...] [Update: I made 1/2 batch for breakfast and it was just enough for 4 of us. The children loved them and thanked me for making them several times!]:
Check out this salted caramel shake - just in time for summer. I have some dulce de leche in the fridge. I think I'll give it a go with that if I can find some good pretzels locally (or else I might just cave and use the big bag from Sam's that my mom got for our graduation party... tempting, but I'll look for healthier ones first!):
Some inspiring crockpot recipes:
Plantain taco shells. Brilliant. FYI - the plantains in the store are never ever ripe. Buy them and wait until they are really ugly :).
Mango Salsa. I don't know that the mangoes would last long enough around here to get the salsa made but I'll try! I've been seeing them 2 for $1 this week (was that at Sprouts??). BTW, mangoes freeze great. I prefer sazon - right in between ripe/stringy and hard/sour.[Need to have ready: red onion, cucumber, red pepper, cilantro, lime juice]
Who knew that you could make your own natural mascara??
I cannot wait, wait, wait to try making one or all of these lotion bars!
Here is a DIY Sunscreen (with non-nano zinc oxide - super important that sunscreens use non-nano ingredients!). Someone told me last week that they use pure shea butter as sunscreen and it works. I need to write a post about our recent sunburn experience...
Another version of marshmallows:
Crock Pot Chicken Taco Salad:
Easier onion rings [update: We made these yesterday and they were fantastic. My kids were so excited when they saw what I was making - and oldest helped, I should add. Vidalia onions are in season! I served them for a hearty lunch (since dinner was a everyone-on-your-own day) along with nitrate-free polish sausage, organic BBQ chips, and hotdog buns with 'better' ingredients)]:
