chocolate chicken mole


When this recipe for Chocolate Chicken Mole was bubbling away in the slow cooker, my stomach would not stop  constantly screaming to eat.   I felt like it had turned into a toddler having a temper tantrum over some candy.  I could not wait to  inhale this deliciousness that my friend Arsy, from Rubies and Radishes, had created  for her cookbook The Paleo Foodie Cookbook.  It was so stinking good, I ate seconds.

This book is a gorgeous testimony to Paleo eating and if you aren’t the lucky winner of a copy of this book, I’m just going to say, BUY IT!  Just do it.  It has 120 recipes that will have your mouth watering like a Doberman eyeing a rib eye.   Next on my list to try is the Sun-dried Tomato and Mushroom Lamb Burgers and I know it will not disappoint.  

Ok, so this will be the last post for the week since my book has picked up steam again!

Lovelies, one of you has a chance to win this cookbook! Enter below!
