  1. Could I bake them instead? I don't have a grill or grill pan.

    • Yes, absolutely..or throw them in a skillet with no skewer! :-) If you bake them, I wouldn't skewer them ~ I'd be afraid that the sticks would burn. If you decide to do this, soak the skewers in water before you bake them (and keep an eye on it!) :-)

  2. My boyfriend LOVED this recipe that I made last night except no grill so just seared on the stovetop. Definitely using this sauce again!

  4. Whether this is true or not is very debatable but wine and brandy
    are created from grapes which are a paleo-helpful foods.
    While there is a large amount of different kinds of foods allowed for those on the Paleo diet, there are with out a doubt some foods that you must
    steer clear of. Some people argue that ancient people were not healthier
    than we are today, and it’s true that some cultures
    ate more “refined foods” and had more health problems to show for
    it, or just didn’t have the foods available to make healthy choices, but
    most traditional cultures all over the world did have an ancient wisdom about their food and lifestyle choices.
