Paleo Indulgences Frosting

Posted Mar 19 2013 10:10pm

I had the best weekend. Period. It started with seeing some of my favorite Paleo foodies at the cart on Friday, The Credicotts! Cain is the editor of the awesome Paleo Magazine and his wife, Tammy, writes an amazing blog and is the renowned author of Paleo Indulgences. I got to chit chat with them for a bit which always gets me pumped to be a part of the Paleo community. Speaking of Paleo community, on April 27th, Sarah Fragoso of Everyday Paleo and Jason Seib will be speaking at Clackamas Physical Conditioning !! If you want to learn more about Paleo, fat loss and how to exercise then this is the workshop for you!! For more info, contact jason at (503) 887-7441.

Saturday was my day with hubs and a workout day. Last Wednesday we did barbell high pulls. My.Traps.Hate.Me. So, my energy was a little low since doing anything with my upper body was simply out of the question. Then, hubs and I spent all day Saturday cooking and hanging out in our jammies. Be jealous. It was awesome.

Sunday I hung out with a good friend and we made some killer Paleo pizza and got awesome pedicures. My toes look soooo good!! Now if only the weather would lighten up a bit so I could actually bust out my flip flops without freezing my footsies off!! I also cooked up a ton! I made sauteed collards, sauteed kale and onions, egg baked avocado, roasted chicken, clarified butter, salmon salad, southwest aioli and Irish carrot soup!! Needless to say the house smelled amazing!!

I also worked on Paleo Indulgences Vanilla Frosting recipe, which of course, I somehow managed to butcher. I can’t follow recipes!!! I am not sure what happens in my brain, but somehow I manage to screw it up just about every time. I think the problem was that I didn’t sift the coconut flour. Darn you sifter!!! Anyways, if you sift the coconut flour, you will have a mellow, smooth vanilla frosting (which I am totally adding vanilla beans to!).
