If baked in close quarters; small / deep dish time will need to be longer than if in a shallower dish...... but in any case 40 minutes is pretty short. check out this link... http://bit.ly/I70DmW

I see there are many recipes of paleo pancakes, brownies, ice cream, cinnamon rolls (oooh myy, looks soo good..), etc. Is this something you include in your diet, or do you stay away from baking and keep it totally clean?

I certainly agree that there are many paleo treat recipes and, yes, I've pinned quite a few of them. But have I made them? Only a few and only for special occasions when hosting other people. (Often, they turn out a little dissapointing.)... (more)

Something like Brazilian Cheese Bread is simple, easy, fast and tasty. They are hard to stop eating so having a crowd to finish them off is best. Also some good pumpkin pie with nut crusts, google for recipes. (more)

I for some reason cannot comment on the above, which I upvoted... but yup pour vinegar down there doesn't have to be much, OR what I usually do as I never seem to have vinegar on hand, is a kettle full of boiling water. That'll clear it out.

Whoa - if you're making a paste you're using a LOT of baking soda. No wonder your head is pissed. Try diluting it way, way down - and dissolving it into hot water first. That way it's easier to disperse throughout your hair and less abrasive, and... (more)

Coconut flour is a tasty and much healthier option for regular grain flour. Also, much better than almond flour in my personal opinion. Less PUFA, and pretty high fiber, without an overly coconut taste. I have used it in breads, pancakes,... (more)

Depends on your recipe, but usually it can be omitted with both coconut flour and almond flour muffin recipes. The arrowroot just gives a more fluffy and cakey texture. As long as its only a small amount called for, say less than a couple... (more)
