Four Ingredient Fudge (Paleo)

Posted on

There nothing quite like chocolate and raspberries when it comes to a dessert. Am I right? I’ve gotten to the point where sweets really aren’t a huge part of my life, but having something that satisfies that craving once and a while is so nice! That’s why I love this four ingredient fudge. I’ve been making this “fudge” forever now but never posted it. It’s one of those “it’s so simple you don’t need a recipe” kind of recipes. But then again that’s pretty much… Read More

Fig Protein Balls

Posted on

So I have a bone to pick. I enjoy getting on Pinterest a lot, searching for recipes, crafts, home decor etc. Every time though I see a TON of recipes for varying snacks that in some way or another proclaim they’re full of energy and protein. Which could very well be true, except I am skeptical when they look like donuts holes, have 3 different types of dried fruits and a smidgen of protein from a nut butter. Don’t get me wrong, I am positive… Read More

Cauliflower & Leek Turmeric Fried Rice

Posted on

  Recently I made this “fried rice” on a whim. Truthfully it was a throw together meal that turned out ridiculously good so I thought I should share with you. Fried rice from traditional Chinese takeout restaurants was go my favorite thing order pretty much all my life. Give me some fried rice, perhaps a hot and sour soup, make sure you include a fortune cookie (or two) and I was a happy camper.

Five Spice Sausages

Posted on

  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

Local’s Lamb Burger

Posted on

  One of my favorite lunch spots that I’ve ever been to, is this place called Local’s in Fairhope, Alabama where I used to live. One of the first time’s I went there was with my mom when my she visited. I kept saying that I wanted to go but never found the time or opportunity. Don’t you love it when someone comes to visit and you get to explore your own town as if you’re a visitor too? It’s awesome. So now that I’ve… Read More

It’s spring!! I can’t say how amazing it is to feel the lightness in the air.

Moroccan Lamb with Caramelized Fennel

Posted on

You know the feeling when you crave a specific type of food? It’s all consuming, the feeling of “I gotta have it RIGHT now,” sorta thing swarms you and suddenly you’re possessed by only wanting that one food or flavor. This was me recently.  Craving like a mad person some sort of spice, curry-like dish that reminds me of when I used to enjoy Indian, Thai and Moroccan flavors like nobodies business. One of the key similarities in those foods is the spice, subtle in… Read More

Super Green Pesto with Red Snapper & Turnip Noodles

Posted on

Pesto was my thing. Is my thing actually and there are five simple ingredients that make a true pesto; a nut (traditionally pine nuts, though my favorite is pecan), a cheese (traditionally Parmesan, though my choice would be Pecorino), basil, high quality olive oil and fresh garlic. After living in Italy I know how the Italians feel about tampering with traditions, especially recipes. While living there I searched high and low for the most authentic  pesto and when I came home I aimed to recreate… Read More

Shepherd's Pie

The transition from winter into spring is here and we’re all anxious to celebrate! I think hunkering down with one last crazy cozy meal is just the way! I spent my weekend with a trip to the farmer’s market, some time in the sunshine but also a lot of time indoors, hunkering down working on projects and things I needed to get done. This meal was an easy one pan throw together that I knew would last me several meals. It’s warm spices take this… Read More

Lavendar Tigernut Scones

  When my mom and step-dad got married I remember as a nine-year old being sad that they were going to leave my sister and I for entire week while on their honeymoon. I found it quite rude that we weren’t invited. At the time we lived in Belgium, they were off to honeymoon in Spain and my great Aunt was in town from York, England with her friend to take care of us. The morning after the wedding I begrudgingly came down the stairs… Read More
