One Delicious Recipe A Day…. Or Not


Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower

Since going Paleo we have been eating more veggies. Our favorite is roasted broccoli and sometimes we also add cauliflower. We have been eating them almost every night.


Desired amount of broccoli

Desired amount of cauliflower

1-2 Tablespoons olive oil

2-3 cloves of garlic, minced




Put your cut broccoli and cauliflower in a bowl and drizzle it with olive oil, we have found that stirring helps coat the vegetables better. Then add minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Pour onto baking stone and bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes until they start to brown. Enjoy.

I have heard that lemon juice is good on the veggies too, but we haven’t tried it yet. Pictures to come 🙂

Pizza Crust

We made this pizza crust the other night and, even though it is still more fun to knead and roll out the gluten filled pizza dough, this was still fun. It was the best pizza dough recipe we have used yet. We changed this recipe a little from the original that we found from Taste Of Home. We made alfredo chicken pizza and barbecue chicken pizza (recipes for these pizzas to come)


1 tablespoon active dry yeast

2/3 cup warm water

1/2 cup tapioca flour

1/2 tablespoon water (you might have to add more or less)

2 teaspoons xanthan gum

1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1 teaspoon cider vinegar

1 teaspoon olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 to 1-1/3 cups brown rice flour

1/2 tablespoon honey

In a bowl dissolve yeast in warm water. Add all ingredients, but only add 2/3 cup of the brown rice flour (Save the rest for when you roll out your dough). Dough should be sticky.

Then roll your dough on a floured surface. Then transfer to your sprayed pizza pan. Build your edges to make a crust. Then cover and let rest for 10-20 minutes.

Bake at 425 for 10-12 minutes. Add your toppings and then cook until your pizza looks good (or your cheese is golden). Makes one 12″ pizza.

Peanut Butter Jumbos

Made peanut butter jumbos on Tuesday. We made them in a 9 x 13. Had to cook them a little longer but they tasted great.

These sound so good! They are gluten-free. I have a feeling that you can replace the gluten-free flour with all-purpose flour if you are not gluten-free. Thanks to Heather who inspired me to find a gluten-free recipe, and to Betsy who has the gluten-free recipe.
