Chocolate + dried cherries + cashew butter = grain-free cookie perfection. As a big fan of peanut butter cookies, but not a fan of all the flour and sugar, these flourless cashew butter cookies are a most delicious replacement. Read more
The deeply, spiced aroma of braised oxtail transports me back to Italy instantly. In Italy, Coda alla Vaccinara is made into a stew that eats like a sauce, traditionally made in Rome.

Hi, I’m Leslie-Anne – A chef and former carb addict sharing my “paleo-ish” lifestyle through my love of cooking!
I know what it’s like to struggle with healthy eating. In 2013, after completing the Whole30, I lost about 60 lbs, completely changed my relationship with food and discovered that the paleo style of eating really worked for me. I realized that making small dietary changes could improve my health fairly easily and I couldn’t stop preaching the paleo-love to all my friends.
I like to think of my paleo approach as paleo-ish. I am not a zealot – I love an occasional crusty slice of sourdough bread as much as I can get down with a bowl of zoodles and meatballs. For me, this paleo-ish thing is all about moderation and eating in a style that makes me feel vibrant and healthy.
