This Paleo Maple Blueberry Turkey Breakfast Sausage recipe was originally published on Food Fanatic. 

I’m really not a breakfast person and I’m definitely not a fan of the sweet breakfast stuff. I love paleo pancakes, paleo waffles, all that yummy sweet paleo stuff. But I love them later in the day. I need a savory breakfast or nothing at all.

The problem is, a lot of the typical savory options aren’t paleo. Paleo bacon has become easier to find but paleo breakfast sausage still isn’t showing up in my local grocery stores. Everything is so loaded with sweeteners, fillers, and all sorts of things that definitely aren’t paleo-approved.

These Paleo Maple Blueberry Turkey Breakfast Sausage has a bit of sweetness (and obviously uses maple as a sweetener but that’s paleo okay!) to them but they’re still savory enough that I consider them breakfast appropriate.

A delicious way to use leftover ham: Honey Ham Biscuits! Only 4 ingredients and they will be the star of your brunch!

Originally published on April 7, 2014. Updated on March 20, 2018. 

The kids went back to school yesterday.


I did as every mom does after a solid 10 days with no break.

I got a spray tan and then drove an hour to the nearest Whole Foods for coconut flour tortilla chips and a bag of vegan peanut butter M&Ms.

Boyfriend was all, “You go to the coffee shop to work this morning?”


Yeah, totally.

Anyway, I knocked out, like, 10 recipes last week while they were home and asking a billion questions every minute of the day so you better believe I have a yoga class scheduled this morning and then plan to spend at least 3 hours strolling around the library.

Might even sit in my car and watch Instagram stories without interruption for awhile before driving home.

Pecan Oat Pancakes – fluffy pancakes filled with pecans and oats! Delicious, hearty breakfast recipe! 

Hi guys, I made pancakes.

I don’t make pancakes. I haaaaate making pancakes.

I can’t make a decent pancake to save my life.

I would rather stand at the waffle maker all morning, making one waffle at a time, than even attempt to make pancakes.

But you guys, look at my pancakes!

Aren’t they beautiful?!

I made so many batches of pancakes last weekend and I think I’ve finally got it down.

This all started because I took my kids to IHOP last week when it wouldn’t stop raining and it was super depressing and the best way to eat your feelings is with a funny face pancake. I’ve had pancakes on the brain since then.

Pineapple Upside Down Muffins - easy, kid-approved breakfast recipe! Delicious muffins filled with crushed pineapple and topped with a sprinkle of brown sugar and a maraschino cherry!

I’m doing that thing again where I refuse to buy cereal because we’ve had this giant Sam’s Club sized box of instant oatmeal in the pantry for, like, 3 months now and I. Want. It. Gone.

I’m told that there are people in this world that enjoy oatmeal and happily eat it but my children and I are not those people.

Why’d you buy 52 packs of oatmeal, Amanda, if you guys don’t eat oatmeal?

I don’t know, y’all. I black out in Sam’s the second I start thinking about getting a slice of pizza and I don’t even realize I have the oatmeal until I’m already out the door and flinging boxes into the Jeep.

No, this isn’t the first time we’ve ended up with the oatmeal.

Bacon and Butternut Squash Breakfast Tacos - the best fall breakfast! Corn tortillas filled with bacon and butternut squash. Top with an egg, salsa, and fresh cilantro!

Heeeey guys, happy Friday!

Can I tell you about the first time I ever got a mean comment on this blog?

It was my Ranch Mac and Cheese from 2010 because yes, I have been blogging my entire life. And the comment was from a man, along the lines of Italian grandmother’s rolling over in their graves.

So I called my then husband in tears because omg, I had offended someone with my mac and cheese. And should I just take the post down? Should I respond to the guy and apologize? Should I just leave the internet forever?

No, I am not dramatic at all.

But you guys, when that comment came through, I was literally waiting for a car I didn’t arrange to pick me up for a flight I didn’t pay for so that I could go to Minneapolis to bake in the Betty Crocker Kitchens with some of my favorite bloggers.

It was my first big blogging trip and I’d never been more excited for anything in my life. Why was I so worried about some random internet guy who was offended by pasta?

But yeah, I’m telling you this because I still brace myself any time I take a classic food and make it a little weird because of that one jerk that decided to leave a nasty comment 7 years ago.

Y’all don’t even want to know the comments I got after those Cubano Tacos.
