Eggplant Parm with meatsauce

What to do with leftover meatsauce after eating up all the zucchini pasta?  Make eggplant parm.
It is not pretty looking, but it tasted good.

Paleo Cinnamon Rolls

I did not find this recipe to be sweet or doughy enough.  I think with a few tweaks it could make maybe a good scone recipe.

Easter Macaroons

Lots of macaroons seem to appear around Easter, so I made my husband macaroons for dessert on Easter.  These were very simple.  Just look at the short ingredient list!  The recipe came from Elena's Pantry

2 Egg whites
1/4 cup Honey
2 1/2 Coconut Flakes
1/4 teaspoon Salt

Whisk egg whites and honey.
Add salt and stir in coconut flakes.
Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Firmly pack a tablespoon with the macaroon mixture.
Put the mounds on a silpat or parchment paper.  The honey will make these hard to remove otherwise.
Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes
Cool and eat!

I would make these again!

Zucchini noodles with meat sauce

We finally have used our mandolin and created some zucchini pasta.  After the zucchini was grated into noodles they were cooked briefly in boiling, salted water for about 3 minutes.  The zucchini pasta was topped with a meat sauce (still using up the cow share meat) and some soy free dairy free Daiya Cheese shreds.  One the side are some of the rosemary biscuits I made topped with coconut butter and some Italian seasonings.  I think this is now one of my favorite paleo meals.
