Spicy Thai Curry Chicken Wings

Spicy Thai Curry Chicken Wings

Yesterday was my birthday (!!!) and I’ve decided that all of you deserve a gift…in the form of these Thai Curry Chicken Wings! They’re awesome. So finger-licking good.

I knew I would be sharing the recipe for these wings the minute I bit into them. They’re just that delicious. Of course, I promised my partner that I would make them again in a few days just to retest the recipe (that’s our secret code for “this food is so damn good I just want to eat it again as soon as possible without looking obsessed”).

"Modded" Phat Fudge | DoYouEvenPaleo.net

Modded Phat Fudge

Ever heard the phrase “Fat is Phat”? That’s what this fudge is all about. Because fat is good for you. End of story!

Before we get to the recipe, I want to make it perfectly clear right off the bat: I am not the creator of Phat Fudge. Mary, The Paleo Chef, is the genius.

This is simply a modded (modified) recipe that I’ve found I really enjoy and want to share with you! I absolutely don’t want to try and take the credit for the original creation. In fact, I heartily encourage you to check out the original first. Because the original is always best, right? After that, come right back here and check out my version. Make both. Compare. Rejoice at all the delicious phat fudge on your hands.

Buffalo Chicken Sweet Potato Egg Bake

Buffalo Chicken Sweet Potato Egg Bake

I’ve got to apologize in advance that I don’t have more to say today. I’m writing this post quickly before leaving on my vacation and scheduling it for later. Hopefully you understand why I’m in a rush!

I created this recipe a looong time ago while experimenting with leftovers and egg bakes. Like many of my early creations, I didn’t write down the recipe and therefore completely forgot I had made such a thing (even if it was totally delicious). That is, until someone going through my old Instagram photos (from over a year ago) asked for the recipe and I realized I didn’t have it.

Remembering how awesome it was, I decided I’d better test it again and post the recipe this time!

Enjoying Life Guilt-Free: Stop the Glorification of Busy

Enjoying Life Guilt-Free: Stopping the Glorification of Busy

In a recent conversation with my sister, she announced to me that she decided to take a year off from her PhD program. She had been thinking about this for a while, but finally made a firm decision about it. I’m proud of her. Frankly, she has been so stressed out working part time, teaching, and going to classes that she was obviously pretty unhappy.

But when my sister started voicing her concerns about stress and not having time to enjoy the things she loves to colleagues and professors, she received largely the same response: “You’re a grad student. You aren’t supposed to have free time.”

Does anyone else realize how ridiculous that sounds?

Paleo "Peanut Butter" Fudge

4 Ingredient Paleo “Peanut Butter” Fudge

Hey everyone! It’s the first freaking day of Spring and I’m back at it, sharing another incredibly easy recipe with you. 4 Ingredient Paleo “Peanut Butter” Fudge! It’s easy, uses ingredients you probably already have (or at least have easy access to), and tastes fantastic!

I feel like I’ve just been killing it in the kitchen lately. I mean, the majority of my meals are still crazy simple and mundane, but I have a slew of new recipes to share with y’all and I’m really excited about that. I’ve already shared a few! I don’t know if you’ve noticed the pattern, but I share one recipe a week. I have a pretty safe back-log so I can continue to post when life is stressful or I’m struggling with recipe inspiration.

Eventually, when I finally get myself to post more than just recipes, I’ll probably post one recipe and one non-food post a week. Or something like that. I just don’t like feeling chained to a schedule, so I’m not making a post schedule at this point in time. Deal with it.
