From the Book > Cheese Crackers (We made a boo boo)

This recipe is in the snacks section of Primal Cravings, on page 196, except it doesn’t say “1/2 teaspoon baking soda”. I am mortified and so, so sorry. Ink is so very much more permanent than pixels on a…


Barbecued Zombie Skin

Paleo Fried Chicken Skin

I really love pork rinds & cracklings, but it’s next to impossible to find any commercial brands that source foraging piggies. Make my own, you say? I’ve tried that, but it just takes so darn long. When those salty…
