World’s Best Bread Pudding

One day our neighbor Ruby Tecson brought over a plate of this bread pudding. If anyone knows my husband he is the pickiest person in the world. Let’s just say he devoured this thing. He asked if I would beg for the recipe. I pretty much stalked her for it. Thank you so much Ruby for sharing your recipe with me...

*My first time making meatballs was a huge hit! I created this recipe after much research and just winged it. So happy I did because they were AHMAZING! I made them to carb-load before my first dirt bike race. I made them in the morning before I drive out and tasted all 4 methods before I did the taste test with our dirt bike club members. This recipe yields about 30 meatballs for 1.5 pounds of meat...

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

 Time to Share!
As most of you already know, I took a couple years off from Crossfit training in order to train for a Half Ironman and to ride my dirt bike more often. Back in December I started back to Crossfit. My food blog has so many components to it that I hadn’t focused on ZONE or PALEO styled recipes in quite some time...

Crock Pot Macaroni and Cheese

While I was getting my hair done by wonderful Allison, we got talking about food and she mentioned a recipe she heard of by Trisha Yearwood that you could make in the crock pot. She was wondering if that was even possible, so I volunteered to find the recipe and attempt it to see if it was worth anything. AND IT WAS! Very tasting and beyond easy.
  • Cooking spray
  • 8 ounces cooked elbow macaroni (h...

Paleo Shepherd’s Pie

 With Butternut Squash Mash in the middle:
Intriguing enough…when I did the Half Ironman a couple summers ago in Calgary, Canada we were given gift bags. Inside the gift bag was Impact Magazine the July/August 2011 edition. I saw this recipe for Mammothherd’s pie and kept the magazine to one day attempt it. Let’s just say I loved it so much I made it twice in one week...

Bacon & Egg Cupcakes

My husband emailed the link to this recipe while I was working. A quick glance at the link, I thought he really wanted me to bake him cupcakes. When I got home that night, I pulled up the link and went to the website and realized what it really was. I attempted this two ways.
Bacon and Egg Cupcakes Ingredients:
– 12 eggs (one per cupcake hole)- You can omit the yolks if you want all egg whites

Hadley’s World Famous Date Shake

I’ve been going to Hadley’s Fruit Orchard farm since I was a little girl. My parents would take me to Palm Springs to get on the aerial tram and we would visit Hadley’s for date shakes and of course the Cabazon outlets years later and Morongo Casino & Hotel next door as well. Since I cover the desert for work, I try to stop at Hadley’s a few times a year to pick up date paste...
