Who doesn’t love cinnamon rolls?! Growing up I ate the store-bought kind for YEARS, until I taught myself how to cook. In this recipe, I’ve taken a classic cinnamon roll and added a tropical twist.

Recipe: Paleo Dessert Crêpes

A few years back I ate at this AWESOME restaurant called “Wang Gang.” They only stayed open for a few months, but during that time I had at least 20 chocolate spring rolls.

5 Misconceptions About Food

There are so many misconceptions surrounding food and diet. Like much of what we hear in the media, mainstream information about nutrition is usually someone’s opinion, rather than fact. There’s always a new “healthy” fad (acai, avocado, garcinia cambogia, etc) or weight loss product in the news. There are also products and diet plans that actually […]

The Cajun Caveman […]

I Can’t Cook

I recently read an article that said the number one complaint of millennials is that we “can’t cook.” I’m sure this has something to do with the fact that we grew up in an age of total comfort and convenience. With a booming fast food industry, and rapidly advancing technology at our fingertips – it’s no longer necessary to know how to cook.   […]
