Welcome to my recipes! I keep these posts short and sweet for your benefit. I know, for me, when I search for a recipe, I don't want to have to sit down and read a novel first just to get to the recipe. I usually scroll right past the cutesy back story so I can start my cooking! So for the sake of my readers, I will spare you from this. You're welcome!

We all love "football food" right? The wings! The chips! The fried cheese and pizza! I could go on and on... But one of my missions for Lil' Olive Tree is to promote good health, so promoting eating junk food really wasn't a direction I wanted to take. Yes, yes, they saying everything in moderation is ok... However, for some, one little bite can turn into a week or more of binging. I'd hate to see anyone who has been working s...

This recipe is ridiculously good! This is my friend Ardra's recipe which she adapted from "The Paleo Slow Cooker" cookbook; which I then adapted for the Instant Pot for your convenience. I haven't made it with the cognac. I just use about a cup and a half of whatever red wine I have on hand, and about 2 cups of organic beef sto...

Hello, I'm Melissa and today I am going to share my recipe for whipped body butter. This butter is excellent for regular use, it's the only moisturizer my family uses.  It also makes an excellent gift.

I do want to warn you, although this looks delicious and it is edible, it does not taste good at all.  Yes, I tried it, I had to. The last time I made it, my two oldest children were closing in on me ready to strike and although...

I have not had eggs in over a year, as I suspected my baby had an egg allergy, and I breastfeed him.  He had a bit of infant eczema, and when I gave up eggs it went away.  But he is nearly 15 months now, and I wanted to deprive him no longer of the joys of Saturday morning pancakes. So I made this special recipe so he and I could join the family in this luxury. It was delicious! So I had to share.  Hope you all enjoy these as...
