Normally I eschew desserts other than plain fresh fruit, but some of these sound pretty reasonable.  The peaches, made with clarified butter, would be pretty close to actual paleo.

Welcome.  10% nonpaleo isn't bad, especially since the fat in yogurt is at least animal fat.

Have you just started paleo? Is this your first time cutting out sugar and starchy vegetables? If so you may be experiencing sugar withdrawal. The first time I did a 30 day dry out of sugar I spent about 5 days being insanely hungry no matter how much food I shovelled into my face. I quickly realised it wasn't hunger pangs (i.e. physically empty) but insulin spiking due to no sugar in my system. It passed after that first few days and after that my hunger rhythms became much more stable and less intense.

Hey guys, I just published this article (link above) about no bake Paleo desserts, but wanted to share a preview here (there were too many recipes to post  ;D).

I pulled together the recipes that I use for gatherings and other special occasions with family and friends.

Of the 17 recipes these are my top 5 (in no particular order):

1 Chocolate Coconut Cream - I love the rich flavor; Only 4 ingredients and a mixer required to make this happen. Can't beat it.
2 No Bake Cheesecake - Saw this over at Paleo Grubs; it requires a bit of work, but the payoff is bananas (or strawberries, in this case).
3 Cinnamon Peaches - Living in Georgia we have an overflow of peaches annually. It's nice to be able to add a little different flavor to them and mix it up. All you need are a couple of peaches, cinnamon and butter (if you want them warmed). My fav quick sweet treat after dinner.
4 The lemon-strawberry jellies - A sweet and sour delight. My daughter loves these. AMAZING!
5 Chocolate Chip Ice Cream - My fav pre-Paleo ice cream and my fav post-Paleo ice cream. This recipe doesn't even require an ice cream maker. Can't get much simpler.

I have been 90% Paleo for two years, wheat free for 2 and 1/2 years and corn free for 12 years. It has been a progression. With each progression, my health has improved significantly. Now at 64, I am doing so very well. I had blood tests last week and the results were awesome.

My 10% is just full fat yogurt, some hummus, lentil crackers, quinoa, stuff like that. Not pizza, pasta and cake. Corn gives me a headache and makes me disoriented to the point that when I quit it it was figuring out what was making me a mess psychologically. Mood swings, suddenly disoriented to the point of walking into walls and unable to communicate. They wanted to medicate me with drugs. It was the corn. I then quit the wheat 10 years later  as I was having symptoms of "grain brain" tired and foggy. All went away. Then I realized I had to quit the sugar as I could no longer justify "I only use organic cane" I was an addict.

Over the last 12 years I have lost 100 lbs. 50 when I quit the corn and another 50 10 years later when I quit the wheat and and then the grains and sugar. Both times ended up expensive as I had to buy a whole new wardrobe. I love sales!

So I want to keep up with what others are doing and what works for them.

Welcome.  There's nothing to be embarrassed about.  You're on the right track. 

Congrats for taking your health and well-being into your own hands. Too many look for a shortcut or blame others for their issues

The white portion is almost certainly mostly bacon grease, which is basically lard.  It doesn't look burnt, so it could be used.

The remainder, if not too burnt, could be used as chicken stock, I suspect.  I think it's probably not fat.

Recently I made an excellent recipe from one of the Paleo books I have, bacon wrapped chicken thighs.  After cooking I had a lot of juice left so I poured it into a bowl, put it in the fridge and the picture is what I have.  A solid white layer on top of (what I assume is solid) a layer of clearer juice.  I am assuming the bottom is from the chicken and top is lard from the bacon but I'm not sure.  So two questions:
1) Can I re-use the lard and is it the white portion?
2) Can I use the rendered chicken fat as well or no?  If no is there anything I can use it for?

You might try meat with plenty of fat, and hard boiled eggs.
