Cooking stuff, Part II

Today was my JBQ‘s birthday, so I made him a Paleo birthday cake (recipe, I substituted maple syrup with honey). It was the first such cake I had since I went Paleo, and the first one I ever made. I usually cook food pretty well, but I’m not great with desserts. This one turned out good, although we think the cake dough needed more honey.

Happy Birthday sweetie!

Last night I also made some almond-flax crackers. My JBQ, as a real French-man, he loves his cheese, so as we’re gluten-free in this house now, I’m making Paleo cheese crackers once a week. I added sesame seeds, finely chopped thyme & sage, oregano, and 1 TBspoon of olive oil to the base recipe. These came out great!

Both look quite yummy Eugenia! Thanks for all the Paleo related information that you share, both here and on Twitter.

My wife is dealing with adult onset diabetes and other health issues, and we are changing our diets to try to improve her health without having to use so many medications. I pass along the Paleo info that I get from you, and we are very thankful that you take the time to share the info with all of us. 🙂

Also, a happy belated birthday wish from us to JBQ 🙂

Thank you Dean! Best of luck to you and your wife with your diet. I’ve read that Paleo can reverse pre-diabetics and most Type 2, and it can significantly reduce the amount of insulin needed to Type 1 patients after a few months on the diet.
