Mom’s Watermelon-Mint Salad

It’s that time of year for those of us here in the mid-Atlantic area where the weather is starting to warm, the flowers and trees are in bloom, and summer is on its way. During our holiday time together over Easter weekend, my mom was at it again with another tried and true recipe. If you haven’t noticed, she’s often providing, or giving the inspiration for, new recipes on our blog: here are a few examples (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

Growing up, I loved having a slice of watermelon here and there, but was never a fiend for it. That being said, this salad has me coming back for seconds and thirds every time. I’m a big fan of refreshing, healthy, and simple; and this hits all three right on the head.

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today Brent and I are celebrating our 4-year anniversary, and I wanted to share something to celebrate. Both Brent and his dad love all things mint-chocolate, so when I saw mint chocolate-chip cookies in his parents’ pantry a few weekends ago, I knew I needed to find a way to recreate them for him—paleo style.

It took a couple of tries, but I think this cookie recipe was worth it. The mint-chocolate flavor is awesome. Plus, they are super soft and moist! We hope you enjoy this delicious paleo cookie recipe.
