Smoked Salmon Breakfast Quesadillas with Spicy Mayo (PALEO!)

This week flew by. It was not without struggle though – tackling some difficult work tasks did a number on my patience… but it’s Friday!

Restaurant-Style Spicy Mayo (Paleo, with Vegan option!)

We’re in a heat wave.  This is about that time of year where I’ve gotten my summer vacations out of the way, and my next low-key excitement is buying sweaters from WHBM… so I get tired of the heat pretty quickly. My birthday is in the fall and as much as I try to hide …

Chimichurri Sauce (Paleo, Vegan, Gluten-Free, EVERYTHING)
