Paleo Maryland Crab Cakes
Skippy's review was not being a party pooper in pointing out that "about half" of this recipe is not Paleo. I will be a party pooper with my review. I am looking for a Paleo crab cake recipe for my 3rd grade child to eat as part of her social studies curriculum. She has serious digestive issues and is on Paleo out of necessity. So, I was elated to find a Paleo recipe so that she can have the full learning experience. She so often has to forgo any food activities. Well, my hopes were then dashed when I looked at this recipe and saw the processed, non-Paleo ingredients. I should have knows, as it seems like nowadays most people consider their food to be "Paleo" if it contains an animal protein source and uses almond or coconut flour. Old Bay seasoning is decidedly not Paleo, unless you post a home made version of it. The same with Worcestershire sauce (unless you know of a specifically Paleo store bought sauce, and in which case it would have been nice to have the brand name). The Tabasco sauce probably is not either, with the distilled vinegar. Should contain a type of vinegar that still has "the mother".

Mock Coconut Pie (Spaghetti Squash Pie)
This was a great inspiration for a GAPS Diet/Paleo recipe with some modifications. I replaced the sugar with 1/4 cup of honey (and could have cut it even more, next time will try 3 Tablespoons, and then hopefully just 2 Tablespoons would be enough). I omitted the crust entirely (crustless). And I increased the eggs to 4 eggs (will go all the way up to 6 eggs next time). We can't handle dairy, so used coconut oil. This was great for dessert or stand alone breakfast (especially with increased eggs). I could see this being a nice breakfast side dish to have with sausage. My 9 year old child and I are on GAPS Diet. She loved this. My husband is not on a special diet and he loved this as well. Definitely a win when everybody in the house likes a dish. And we did think it resembled coconut pie. Thanks for posting!

Paleo Spaghetti Pie (Grain, Gluten, and Dairy Free)
This recipe is great. We are actually on GAPS (very similar to Paleo; we use lots of Paleo recipes and make small changes when needed). The medical practitioner we see wants both my daughter and me eating beef every single day. So I'm constantly on the lookout for new, and (relatively) easy things to do with beef, especially since my 8 year old daughter can be picky with ground beef, as it is one of her least favorite meats. This recipe was a hit. I used ground beef instead of turkey sausage, had to look up a recipe to make pizza sauce (found a good Paleo pizza sauce recipe that worked). I also doubled everything in the recipe. My husband eats organic but is not on GAPS (or PALEO, but will eat whatever I make, and ground beef IS his favorite). Doubling the recipe filled a 13x15 baking dish to the top. We wound up eating 1/2 the dish for lunch! My husband just could not stop eating this, my daughter ate a hefty slice, and as for me I ate a "reasonable portion" and then just kept slicing a thin line down the baking dish taking "a little" bit more, and before we knew it, 1/2 the dish was gone. The other modification I made was adding 16 oz of mushrooms (and could have added more). We all thought it was very similar tasting to lasagna. For those people who do (or can) eat dairy, some cheese would have been amazing on this as well. Would definitely make this to serve to others as well. Just add a tossed salad and you've got a complete meal. It's delicious.
