Paleo Shepherd’s Pie might actually be better than the traditional version! With sweet potatoes and a rich tomato gravy, it’s fantastic comfort food.

How does your cooking change in the summer? Like, beyond grilling more often and eating more salads?

I find that I just have zero desire to cook. We’re just so busy and doing so many fun things that most days I don’t even realize that we missed dinner time until my kids are all hangry and we’re minutes away from a giant disaster.

I just don’t want to cook. I want to be outside. I was to be in water. I was to be hiking through the woods. I don’t want to cook anything.

Korean Beef Cauliflower Rice Bowls - delicious sweet and spicy beef with cauliflower rice, veggies, and a fried egg on top! It's paleo but even the non-paleo people in your life will love it!

You guys.

I’m in love with this bowl right now.

So much that when I dropped the beautiful heart Pyrex that I love so much that happened to be holding the Korean beef, I may have cried a little. Over the beef. Not the Pyrex.

Yep.

Okay, so if you follow me anywhere, you know I’m obsessed with the bulgogi fries from one of the local food trucks.

Obsessed.

I think about them daily.

But they close on the weekends. And also, I probably shouldn’t be eating fries every day of my life. So I came up with this.

Paleo Korean Beef Bowls - delicious 20 minute meal! Spicy and sweet beef served over cauliflower rice!

Haaaaaaappy Friday, y’all!

Umm. Can we talk about this week’s Real Housewives of New York?

What.

I mean, LuAnn is insane, right? What is happening there?! How does she not realize she’s insane?!

I’ve watched the episode 3 times and I still squeal with horrified glee when they all go crazy over the guys on the boat. So embarrassing. The whole episode was a mess.

And I loved every minute of it.

Also, Big Brother is really boring and this is the first time I haven’t cared about it since season 2. So. Ugh.

Way to ruin my life, CBS.

Doughnut Burgers with Candied Bacon - the most amazing burger you'll ever eat! It's the ultimate sweet and salty combination!

How is it Monday already?

I’m not ready!

Let’s go back to Friday night!

Anyway.

I’m back from Salt Lake City – got in late last night. I had the best time at the conference and met so many amazing bloggers that I’d only ever talked to on the interwebs. Plus, Nicole and I got matching tattoos.

That’s a normal thing to do on a work trip, right?

Right?!

Sloppy Joe Tater Tot Casserole! Ground beef or turkey in a delicious sloppy joe sauce topped with cheese and tater tots! Kids love this one!

I know. It’s way too early in the morning to be talking about things like tater tot casseroles.

I’m sorry.

I was sick all weekend – all weekend! – and didn’t have time to get a bunch of yummy things baked and photographed. I made this and it’s delicious and amazing but I couldn’t stop coughing long enough to take pictures. Being sick is the worst.

I threw this Sloppy Joe Tater Tot Casserole together for my kids yesterday and there wasn’t a tater tot left by the end of dinner. They loved it! I won’t lie, I didn’t think it sounded very good but I stole a couple bites and didn’t hate it. I like sloppy joes, I love tater tots – so yeah, I think I’m just embarrassed to say that I liked it.
