“The 30 Day Guide to Paleo Cooking”, Bill Staley & Hayley Mason

Sadly, this is not an OMFG – Blogger Stalking post lol. BUT I did win a contest by knowing probably way too much about Bill & Hayley, which garnered me a lovely preview of their new book “The 30 Day Guide to Paleo Cooking”. You can find their super awesome site, where you will find their blog and tons of recipes, here: The Food Lovers’ Kitchen – Primal Palate. Here is their Facebook page:  The Food Lovers’ Primal Palate – Facebook page!

My wife tells me that when I get my mind wrapped around something, it’s full steam ahead. And that yes, I am a bit of a stalker…sooooo, yea! I peruse Paleo blogs and absorb a shit load pretty consistently.

Bill & Hayley were my first foodie blog introduction into Paleo. I fell in love with their first book Make it Paleo (click the titles to link to Amazon). Their second book, Gather, the Art of Paleo Entertaining, which just hit the shelves in April (I believe), is absolutely beautiful! I love having this book as a reference for entertaining!

This last book, which debuted on June 11th,  The 30 Day Guide to Paleo Cooking: Entire Month of Paleo Meals, is incredible. 75 new recipes and there is a picture for EVERY RECIPE! This is important people! All their books feature a picture of the dish, which I am sure is no easy fete. There is a ton of love poured into these pages! This book should be your let’s-get-started-on-this-paleo-shiznit reference guide. They pack a lot of education here, as well as easy meal planning suggestions, by week, with a tear-out shopping list for each week! Say what? Seriously stupid easy to follow. You cannot fail here!

I made a variation of their breakfast recipe for “Broccoli Casserole”. Instead of using white mushrooms as the recipe called for, I used left over mushroom Marsala from my own steak topping recipe. It already had thyme, garlic & butter in it. I also added tomatoes to the top of it.

Thank you so very much Bill & Hayley! You are a constant source of inspiration in this kitchen 🙂

Product Review: Bakery On Main Instant Oatmeal

Last night, lying in bed watching ridiculous shows on TV (yes, I’m addicted to the Real Housewives and Kim Zolciak – I was a REAL life housewife myself last year lol), I saw Celiac and the Beast‘s product review post for Bakery on Main’s instant oatmeal.  A quick link to Bakery On Main‘s instant oatmeal page and I was obsessed with finding this product in a local store.

Luckily, on my way to work, there is a new Whole Foods Market AND they carry this brand. I had to stop and grab some on the way in. They only had the traditional flavor in stock.

Oatmeal 2

I added bananas, some sugar and some cinnamon. OHHH MMMM F’IN GEEEEE!!!  I have died and gone to heaven.

Oatmeal 1

It was great! I am super happy with this product and have to order their maple multigrain muffin flavor because I love sweet oatmeal 🙂

And take a look at this, like music to my heart!
