Grilled Peaches with Prosciutto

Spicy Baked Jicama Fries

As the Paleo diet hits the Nation, all I can think about are the things that I would have to give up for this 30-day phenomenon. 30 days and that’s it. However, my mind is telling me 30 days is a long time and some of my MOST favorite, beloved foods will not be...
