Zucchini Chocolate Chip Spice Loaf

Zucchini Chocolate Chip Spice Loaf

3 cups almond flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup grape seed oil
1/4 cup of honey
4 eggs
2 zucchini - shredded
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 cup chocolate chips,plus a handful of chips

Set your oven to bake at 375. In a large bowl combine the almond flour, baking soda and salt. In a medium bowl, mix eggs with oil and honey. Combine wet ingredients with the flour mixture and then add the spices and zucchini. Mix until well combined and then stir in the chocolate chips. Pour the mix into a loaf plan and top with a few more chips.

Bake for an hour, but keep an eye on it depending on the consistency and your oven it could be done sooner but this was the first time I tried this and it took about an hour til the middle was not still wet. I would also alert you that I eyeballed it with the spices, and so the measurements above may not be exact, but they are close and I would say use each to your own taste.

I think it is delicious!

"Paleo Burritos" AKA stuffed collard greens

I recently discovered another use for collard leaves, a replacement for our old friend known as tortillas or wraps.

I have used them to make a variety of lunchmeat and grilled chicken wraps recently and then I got to thinking, couldn't I make a burrito out of them? Once I assembled them, it reminded me more of stuffed cabbage than burritos, call it whatever you want, they were still yummy. So, I'll share the recipe with you.

This recipe should be considered a guide and you can change and swap any way you wish.

Approximately 4 collard leaves
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 yellow onion sliced thin
1 green bell pepper sliced thin
1 4 oz can green chiles
1 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
the following spices can be added to your taste (I don't measure)
chilli powder
cumin
garlic powder
salt
pepper

Nashville in a Nutshell

Hello folks!

Skip and her companion recently jetted off to the wonderful land of Nashville, TN for a quick trip with our friends, Mr. & Mrs. Z. Here are some highlights, tid bits and recommendations.

Places to stay: We shacked up at the Hutton Hotel on West End Ave, not far from Vanderbuilt University, but also pretty close to Downtown Nashville. The Hutton is a boutique hotel and is very chic. We found it classy, comfortable and clean-- all very important. They have Nespresso machines on each floor, so you can get your caffeine fix, but you have to leave your room. However, there is a small coffee maker in the room as well with a decent coffee and tea selection. The highlight for Skip's companion was that there were speakers in the bathroom that allowed you to hear what was playing on the tv. The shower was amazing. Skip is not a fan of rain shower heads, but this one was fantastic and you could set the temperature and turn the shower on and off from a panel directly outside o…
