    1. Thanks Julie, we adore your recipes and really appreciate you sharing them with us! Taking a few weeks off so see you next year! Happy Holidays! xo

  2. Thanks for including my recipes Ali!

    1. Sharon, you have beautiful recipes and it was my honor to share them! Happy Holidays!

  3. Wow! What a surprise to come here and not only find out that you've linked up so many of my gift ideas but also to see that readers loved my Paleo Bread and Easy Pantry Soup! We love that combo and it makes me happy that readers liked it, too. :-)

    This week after a false start (forgetting the rules) I've linked up a veggie dish that kids and adults love, Candy Carrot Coins, and my latest recipe Paleo Banana Chocolate Chip Pound Cake. I don't *think* I've linked up the latter before. It's been a busy weekend and I'm having a hard time keeping things straight obviously! LOL Thanks so much for hosting, Ali!


    1. I love your recipes Shirley and can't wait to try your bread. Yes, crazy busy time of year and I'm late responding due to shopping, cooking and loss of brain power! Merry Christmas dear, have a wonderful holiday!
