In keeping with the theme of Paleo today, I made a delicious Shrimp Avocado Salad for lunch! The salad consisted of a simple bed of lettuce, sliced avocado, cherry tomatoes, and lemon garlic shrimp.

If you’ve ever roasted a whole chicken or turkey, you know that the secret is in the brine. Brining a chicken not only adds flavor and produces a delicious juicy bird, but also tenderizes free-range pastured birds as they can often be tough. There are number of different ingredients and spices you can use in your brine, but I usually keep mine simple – salt, sugar, and cider vinegar. How to...

Will and I recently took a weekend getaway to go night skiing and snow tubing at Sunburt Ski Area in Kewaskum, Wisconsin! Do I know how to ski? The answer is no.
