Paleo Halloween: Smoky Mushrooms and Sausage

Last year I made a Paleo Halloween menu called the Dracula Dinner Series where I added a Paleo twist to foods described in Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Apparently Johnathan Harker, the main protagonist in the book, was quite the foodie (at least before he learned there were […]
