Grain(less) Bowls – Paleo, AIP

Posted on

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

Italian Kale & Sausage Soup

Posted on

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

Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad

Posted on

I can’t say there are many things that I truly miss in regards to food that I no longer choose to eat, things like dairy, gluten, soy, beans. Yeah many great things come from each of those ingredients but I miss things like the first snow fall in Belgium when I could see tire marks from my bike, or days in college when I’d wake up in my bed knowing my best friend was directly across the hall, and I miss my dog Rusty who… Read More

Savory Pumpkin Stuffing

Posted on

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

Pumpkin Fudge with Pepita-Sage Caramel

Posted on

I’ve gone and added another pumpkin recipe to your inventory of all the ways you can add pumpkin spice flavor to your life. This fudge is totally mind-blowing. It combines the classic flavors of pumpkin pie along with the bright contrast of sea salt flakes and fresh sage. Listen, if there’s ever a way for me to add fresh herbs to anything, you can bet it’s going to happen. They make everything better, even dessert.     Trust me… are you drooling yet?

Roasted Radishes & Thyme

Posted on

  We’re in full fall swing, let the #roastallthings commence! Starting with root vegetables to be exact, I love roasting vegetables to bring out their natural sweetness and make a warm savory side dish to pair with any meal. Radishes are a long time favorite of mine and with so many varieties, there are endless possibilities when it comes to preparing them. I especially love roasted radishes as they make a great alternative to potatoes while still maintaining lower starch, and lower carb, without lacking… Read More

Slow Cooked Fennel & Lemon Chicken

Posted on

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

Crispy Brussels Sprouts

Posted on

  Let’s face it, Brussels sprouts are basically baby cabbage and ‘baby’ anything is cute, right? So naturally, you’d think more people would be all heart-eyes over Brussels sprouts, and I can tell you I am, though I haven’t always been. I love cabbage, and always have. In fact my Grandpa and I have jokingly fought over my Grandma’s cabbage. But Brussels sprouts, not so much. I feel like they’re the younger sibling, totally left out of the fun and somehow they’ve gotten the bad… Read More

  Some people either love or hate okra, but maybe you haven’t even tried it! Oh this is exciting. If you love it already, then this recipe is definitely for you and if you’ve not liked it in the past I encourage you to give it another shot, that ultra slimy feel and taste that cause most people to shy away from okra is not present here. Just simply delicious flavor and a decent crunch factor.   Okra of course reminds me of my Southern… Read More
