Making cookies with my mother was one of my most favorite memories. I loved coming home from school, getting messy with flour and eating cookie dough out of the bowl. This is a tradition I try to keep going with my own kids – but of course being Paleo it’s a bit different. Each time we make cookies though we try out a new recipe to keep things fun and our most recent recipe we tried is by Healing Family Eat’s for some pretty amazing cookies.
For some reason one of my most favorite desserts growing up as a kid was my grandma’s vanilla cake. It was a simple vanilla cake with just vanilla icing. Most people probably found this boring but any time I could request her to make dessert that is what I’d tell her to make. It was moist and delicious and heavenly. When I came across this recipe by Paleo Grubs I had to give it a try and if there is anything close to my grandmothers recipe this is the one. For all those fellow vanilla cake lovers out there – you’ve got to try it!
