Shredded Kale Salad with Bacon and Dates

Posted on

So I was flipping through an old edition of Southern Living Magazine and stumbled across this tasty little side dish. It is the perfect thing to go along with any summer BBQ or potluck you are attending. If making for a crowd, definitely double or triple the recipe if you are going to chop the kale in the food processor. I liked it better chopped, but tearing the kale leaves definitely stretches the recipe a little further! Enjoy!

Day 7: Caramel Pecan Bars

I am getting seriously fat from all the delicious treats I have been making…straight up fat! I really hope you guys appreciate it! Anywho…here’s another delicious one fromPaleOMG. It doesn’t contain chocolate, but it is very rich and tasty.

Note: I used regular pitted dates (about 15)…I told you I was feeling lazy! You don’t have to soak them, and they are already pitted. :)

Day 6: German Chocolate Fudge Bites

Posted on

These little bites are very similar to the Pumpkin Spice Lara Bar recipe I posted at Thanksgiving, except they are much more chocolaty! (I’m not sure if that’s a word, but it sounds like it should be.)

You throw everything into your food processor- have you picked up a common theme to my recipes, yet? I did add a handful of chocolate chips and a scoop of coconut oil (it just so good, plus it helps keep everything together!) After you blend everything in the food processor, the directions say to throw the food processor mess into a plastic bag and smoosh it into a ball in the bag. I liked this tip because it made everything much less messy, plus my kids love smooshing and squeezing things, so they were happy to help! I was feeling a bit impatient today, so I opted to throw the smoothed ball onto some parchment paper and press flat to a thickness of about a half an inch. Then I stuck them in the fridge for about 15 minutes, took them out and cut them into bars.
