Did you miss the GFAF Expo a couple weeks ago? Are you gluten-free, egg-free, or whatever and can’t find good snacks? Do you want to try some of the snacks I found at GFAF or are you interested in winning some free food?
If you thought this was a typical blog, you were wrong. I’ve been eating venison (wild deer meat) since I was a baby and I continue to believe that it is the best meat out there (wild, deer are overpopulated, you know all of that is organic and free of hormones/antibiotics). As a paleo dieter for about a year and taco lover since tacos first landed in my mouth, I needed a paleo taco recipe. I had been cheating with soft corn taco shells (and continue to when the need strikes), but one day I decided to change all of that and make my own tortillas.
My diet is insane and has been since I was in high school. Thankfully, I have learned to love cooking and get creative in the kitchen. Sometimes, I just need a quick fix and other times I want to make something awesome from scratch. Luckily, I have some amazing tools to help me. Here are my top 5 favorite kitchen tools:
I was never a “good” vegetarian. I would break for special occasions, when traveling, or just to make sure I got the chance to try something special. My ethos was and still is:

Once, while I was following this mostly-veggie mantra, I ate a traditional tamale stuffed with meat. The mother of the guy who I was dating at the time had made them, and they were one of his favorite dishes. Before warming up the tamale for me, this ex-boyfriend made a judgmental remark along the lines of, “You’re going to just forget your morals like that?”
