We Got a Facelift!

Hey guys!

Maybe you noticed, maybe you didn’t, but I’m telling you anyway.  Not only is the sight slightly re-formatted (no surprises, I swear…I am definitely not that competent with computery stuffs) but I’ve dropped the TGIPaleo brand name and adopted a new one, The Not So Desperate Housewife.

More details to come–right now I’m going through and making some formatting tweaks for some stuff that didn’t make it through in one piece.

Otherwise, everything should be unchanged.  All the old posts are there, all the old recipes intact, and if you search TGIPaleo, it will still direct you here.

We’ll talk soon, k?

Butternut Baked “Beans”

We have not stopped eating this stuff since last Friday.  For real.  Tastes like the real thing, I swear.  All that without the talking dog.


Again, I have to blame this on my mid-winter barbecue kick.  I mean, really, what is up with that??  Then again, it’s been the initiation of a few truly spectacular recipes already, so I guess I can’t complain.  All while cutting out sugar, to boot.  I know, right?!

This recipe calls for my amazeballs BBQ Sauce…recipe can be found here!

Butternut Baked "Beans"
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6-8
  • 1 large butternut squash, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • ½ recipe Sugar-Free BBQ Sauce (link above)
  • 4 slices bacon, cut into lardons
  • 2-3 T olive oil
  1. Place the butternut squash cubes on a baking pan and drizzle with a little olive oil.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes, stirring around about halfway through.
  3. While the squash is baking, brown the bacon in a saucepan or skillet.
  4. Add the BBQ Sauce and reduce the heat to medium low. Stir to incorporate the bacon, then cover and simmer while the squash finishes up.
  5. Remove the squash from the oven and transfer to the pot/pan with the BBQ sauce.
  6. Stir to coat and give it a rough mash with a whisk.
  7. Serve immediately.
