A Busy Summer

Dear Blog Followers,

You might have asked yourself: where did Aspen go?  What has she been up to?  Not keeping up with the blog to be certain!  Remember that post a while back when I wrote about all of the major life changes we were contemplating and the decisions we came upon?  One of the changes was me going back to work, back to working outside of the home at a Gold’s Gym near our home.  As a…

Spicy Asian Slaw with Sausage {PALEO}

Yummy sasuage slaw!

I think I have a “life” post banging around in my head, but I’m not ready to write it, and moreover, I’m not sure this is the place to share. So there’s that. You know what else? Yesterday was my birthday! I think birthdays make for lots of introspection; thinking about the changes that took place over the year past, then thinking ahead to the next year. It’s not coincidence that my “life” post…

Asian Marinated Chicken Wings {PALEO}

Easy to make and delicious, a recipe the whole family will love.

Once a week…  I think I must have meant once a month.  A new post once a month, yeah, that seems about right.  Lame, I know.  If you are here for the food, I suggest you skip the next two paragraphs, if not, read on my friend.  It’s been a crazy couple of months.  Here are some of the life changes we considered:

Move to another state, move to another town, Murry leaving his job, me getting a job,…

Butternut Squash and Spinach Curry {PALEO}

Butternut Squash and Spinach Curry {PALEO}

Tasty butternut squash curry. Paleo, dairy free, grain free, vegan.

I gave myself one month.  One month to break from my blog; to not worry about stats or posting.  One month to decide what I want to do with fcubed.

Looking back, I came out of the gates hard.  I was producing content like it was my job, but the thing is, I’m not getting paid. for my efforts.  So when sharing my recipes became more work than fun I stopped doing it.

Truth be told, I’m not…

Cherry Apricot Crusted Pork Chops {PALEO}

Cherry Apricot Crusted Pork Chops {PALEO}

An easy paleo meal that is sure to please even the pickiest eaters. Pork, dried cherries, apricots and pecans make this super tasty.

Yesterday was the most beautiful, gorgeous day we’ve had in awhile.  It was one of those days that help assure you that, yes, indeed, Spring will arrive and the days will warm up and the cherry blossoms will bloom and you won’t have to wear your big, poufy coat everywhere.

We spent this gift of a day car shopping.  Ugh…  But on the bright side, I was able to entertain the kiddos outside in the…

A week!  It’s been a week since my last post!  I can hardly believe it.  Well…  I can believe it.  Last week was an incredibly long week.  Long like loooooooooooong.  There’s no need to go into details, instead, suffice it to say, I’m back.  Life feels a little more under control and my food can move off the back burner.  Hardy har…

Sloppy Joes {PALEO}

Paleo take on a classic. Sloppy Joes for even your pickiest eater!

Late last week I had a major craving for Sloppy Joes, but when I set out to make them I realized I didn’t have the right ingredients on hand.  Boo!  I was frustrated.  It was one of those days where nothing seemed to work out the way I wanted it to, you know the type?

So, I had to settle for putting the sloppy joes I longed for on the menu for this week; for Monday. And that’s what we ate. …
