AIP Paleo Cajun Cookbook Sneak Peek: Fried Okra in Red Palm Oil Recipe

It’s hard to believe it’s been six months since I released my first e-cookbook, AIP Paleo Cajun Cookbook.  I’m so thrilled every time I see one of you post the dishes you’ve cooked, using my recipes. I set out to prove you could have flavorful, delicious foods, even on the AIP.  With my cookbook, and the recipes on my blog, I think I’ve accomplished that.
