Sometimes I often forget how much I miss certain flavors and styles of eating until I have them. That’s where the idea for these sesame ginger meatballs came from. It’s similar to the concept of “out of sight, out of mind” for me when it comes to certain foods. It’s like the instantly I pick up chopsticks to eat sushi I am reminded how much I love using chopsticks to eat, but outside of that situation I rarely think about using… Read More
When I first thought about recreating a pasta salad I considered two things. One being that it had to have a Mediterranean flavor, and two was that it must have black olives. I have a deep love for olives! Follow & Share!
This recipe for lemon herb stuffed omelette is one I shared while taking over the Whole30recipes Instagram page! It’s light and fresh, perfect for summer! It’s also incredible simple but has a touch of elegance and decadence which qualifies it to be served for brunch! Follow & Share!
In the springtime I crave fresh, simple and beautiful food. It’s all about colors, textures and the experience of eating the food, just as much as it is about the food’s flavor. This perfect Paleo spring brunch is ideal for the coming months of fresh simple produce and warmer sunny days. I love these savory “grits” because they are so light comparatively to their corn inspiration. I grew up eating grits coming from a southern family and to me they are the epitome… Read More
It’s the newest trend in the foodie culture to sit down to a big bowl of grains filled with all kinds of warm yummy toppings like eggs, greens, vegetables and other delicious edibles. So in doing what I feel is a public service to what I’d call the “non-grain community” at large is create a “grainless” bowl that resembles it’s original inspiration, yet tastier, more nutrient dense, and vegetable focused. These bowls are the perfect dish to transition from winter to spring as they’re… Read More
In the winter time, soup is everything to me. I love being able to curl up with a piping bowl full of bone broth whether its morning, noon or night. It doesn’t matter. I especially love soups that don’t take much effort, I think many of us can agree that having a pot simmer on the stove without having much to do with it is ideal. This is especially true I find more me during the Holidays. This year the Holiday season has been especially… Read More
I love fall and winter for many reasons, partly the Holiday season, but if I’m being perfectly honest, it’s all the warming food that really does the body good. The foods of the season are things like winter squash, hearty herbs, root vegetables and savory meats. These foods give us sustenance, keeping us fuller longer. But yes of course, there is an association with the Holidays that makes these meals all the more special. It means friends and family come together, more meals are shared… Read More
One of the reasons fall is my favorite season is because it means that slow cooked meals are more frequent. The ease of adding a few ingredients to a slow cooker or Instant Pot and letting it do all the work for you, makes meals so much easier. A bonus being that the whole house smells intoxicating during the day from the cooking process. I also love slow cooking over night, and waking up to a complete dish ready for the week ahead. A go-to… Read More
It’s been a while since I shared about my beef kidney kofta on Instagram and Facebook thinking that no one would be interested in the weird things I indulge in. Well, way to prove me wrong! So many of you were interested in having this recipe and I realize, like I said, it’s been a WHILE, but between moving, work and I’ll be honest, just life I haven’t been posting recipes as often. Note, I say posting, because I have definitely been creating, so hang… Read More
A few weeks ago I had friends in town visiting. I was so happy to have them here not just because I enjoy spending time with them but also because I loved cooking for them. We spent every morning enjoying the most awesome friends breakfasts and just about every day they’d say “OMG, I need the recipe for this.” Which made me of course feel so good about the food I was making them! One of those happened to be these five spice sausages.… Read More
