Taco Pie (Paleo Crust)

My mother-in-law makes the most delicious taco pie with Pillsbury crescent rolls.  The flaky buttery rolls are really yummy but also loaded with wheat, sugar and other preservatives.  So, I decided to make the crust from scratch using my paleo pizza crust recipe.  It calls for a lot of ingredients, but totally worth the extra […]

Whole Turkey in a Crock-Pot
