My mother-in-law introduced me to this recipe which is by far the only way to cook green beans in my mind. She found it in the Boston Globe Magazine, a great find! I usually never buy them because I have never been a fan of green beans but there is something about the slow cooking process that makes these beans melt in your mouth. I usually double the batch so that we have plenty of leftovers. This is a great side dish to go with just about any main dish you create especially this time of year when comfort food is in full force. And when my husband is on travel I can make this one and it will last me almost a week. Gotta love leftovers!

Nothing makes a mom happier then when her kids rave about something that she makes and this morning I hit the jackpot with what I'm calling 1/2 Paleo Incredible Hulk Waffles. You can't tell by the picture but they have a light hint of green in them, just enough to clue my kids in to ask me..."mommy are these Hulk Waffles??" Eventually I'll get them back to 100% Paleo but for now I'm happy that they scarfed these "Hulk Waffles" down and I will definitely be making them again. You will need to order one ingredient or find something similar to it at the health food store. It is a Paleo Greens powder that is packed with nutrients. The one I use is made by PaleoPro and called Paleo Greens Powder. These also make great snacks to grab and go. Enjoy!!

I'm embarrassed on how long it has taken me to blog about this amazing dish! When I'm cooking and creating in the kitchen I often think of my mother-in-law especially when I make a dish that I know she would absolutely love and the second I took a bite into this meal my first thought was "oh man Kathy is going to love this one". I made this dish in St Thomas a few times, first time was for Conor when Chris was out of town. Conor was coaching the night classes and I was putting the kids to bed and finishing up this feast but too tired to stay up so I had a bowl and then this tired mom was down for the night. I left a small note for Conor with some instructions on how to put his plate together and the next morning there was this yellow sticky on my computer... "omg Jenn, that was the best meal I have ever had!!" This recipe was altered from the awesome Paleo cookbook, Well Fed by Melissa Joulwan. I love how she explains it..."it's sophisticated comfort food" and that it is!

It has been a few years since I made these cookies so it was time to introduce them again to my three little men! I think I got the best response I have ever gotten from my boys..."Mommy these are the best cookies you have ever made!!!" ... that just made my day!
I've made a few changes to my recipe... coconut crystals instead of brown sugar and no stevia. You'll want to carefully place the chocolate kisses once the cookies come out of the oven and then let them sit and cool before you move them off the cookie sheet, otherwise they will fall apart.
