Almond Butter Chocolate chip cookies (paleoish)



1 cup of almond butter
Enjoy Life chocolate chips, as much as you want
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 eggs (I used duck eggs)
Several teaspoons of dried coconut
1 tsp lemon juice or apple cider vinegar
3 tbsp. Spectrum shortening (I didn't melt it)
4 packets of Truvia. If you use honey, you will have to adjust the amount of almond butter.

Preheat oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Mix all the ingredients together. Make into small balls, these get bigger as they cook.  Put them on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.  Bake for 10 minutes or so, just keep checking.  You should take them out when they're still a little soft, that's a given for cooking with nut.  They will get harder but will still be chewy enough.

I hope you like them!  My 4-year-old child ate 6 in one sitting!

Paleo Stir-fry

I like to make stir-fry with leftover meat from the day before.  This time we had plenty of pheasant.  .


*I'm eyeballing as usual so please bear with me.

1 package of yam noodles (they sell this at Whole Foods or other health food stores)
Coconut aminos, about 1/8 cup
Sea salt to taste
Ground pepper to taste
Sesame oil, maybe about 1 tsp (optional)
Leftover pheasant meat, removed from bones and diced (you can use chicken, beef, pork, etc)
1 bag of stir-fry veggies
Duck fat (or any animal fat)

Boil yam noodles for however long the package tells you. Drain and then rinse. Heat up a large frying pan or wok with duck fat or any lard you have. Saute meat, then add veggies.  Then add the noodles and everything else. Stir around for a while.  Serve warm and enjoy!
