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

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

Rosemary Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Last weekend I visited my Dad in southern Alabama, the first stop on my trip out west. Knowing full well both my love for cooking delicious and nutritious foods he already had in mind a few things he wanted me to make him while I was there. It’s kind of the coolest thing ever to get to cook for a parent, especially when they ooh and awe over your food. My Dad is pretty much the best recipe taste-tester I have. He loves food just… Read More

Salted Caramel Paleo Blondies {AIP}

Posted on

There’s a methodical process to baking that I’ve never understood. Cooking has mostly been my outlet of choice throwing a little bit of this, a little bit of that together and watching the flavors meld and transform. However, sometimes you just want a dang BAKED good! And for those times, I attempt at baking. I was so excited when Lauren from Empowered Sustenance  asked me to create a recipe for a guest post on her site. I knew, having followed her for quite some time… Read More

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

Shepherd’s Pie {AIP + Paleo}

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

Lamb & Beet Greens Stuffed Acorn Squash

I am of the belief there’s nothing that cannot be combined, piled and squished into an acorn squash. Am I right? First of all, they are so darned cute! These petite squash have a ribbed silhouette that makes them a beautiful display. Serving them cut in half as a single portion is a great way to create what seems like a fancy meal, but takes little time and very few ingredients. If you make these and decide to keep them for meals throughout the week,… Read More

Roasted Carrot Soup & Horseradish Cream

Roasted Carrot Soup with Horseradish Cream

When I first decided to make this I wanted flavors reminiscent of tomato soup. I know you may be thinking, what?? Carrots don’t exactly seem like they would work well for that type of experiment, but trust me they do. Growing up I was not fond of chicken noodle soup, despised “cream of” anything and generally the only canned item of any kind that I liked were asparagus and I’m pretty sure that’s because they were super salty (I love that). However, tomato soup was… Read More
