I haven’t been posting many recipes lately, but I HAVE been cooking. Check out some of the new recipes I’ve been trying that are sure to make their way into my regular rotation! Continue reading


Paleo Jambalaya

Aw yiss, it’s been months and months since I posted a recipe! I had a hankering for jambalaya tonight, which I don’t eat nearly enough of and have never tried making at home before. My only problem: I didn’t have several crucial ingredients, namely andouille sausage and shrimp. BUT I did have salami (salami isn’t typically accepted as a paleo food due to being processed, but it IS delicious and I happened to have some on hand) and tilapia, and I did NOT want to go to the store! So I made a few substitutions.

The results? Delicious. Continue reading

Perfect Paleo Fried Rice

My husband has been very supportive of my decision to “go Paleo”, but I know he sometimes misses the really good stuff- the comfort foods I used to cook much more often- homemade pizza, pasta, naan bread, fried rice. I miss it too! But a few days ago we made fried rice together that was so similar in flavor and texture to the “real stuff” that we were both happy and satisfied. Continue reading


Apple Cider

The first time I tried this recipe, it turned out quite awful. The cider tasted like orange and heavy spices, and had zero apple flavor. Fortunately I was able to rescue it, and since then I’ve made some necessary tweaks to this recipe. Continue reading


Apple Cinnamon Cookies

I was a little bummed this weekend, because I attempted an apple cider recipe that at first did not turn out good. At all. I had taken some really pretty process pictures I was excited to use (apple chunks and cinnamon sticks photograph well, I guess), so I was bummed that I didn’t have a new recipe to share.

Then, Saturday night, I needed to find a way to use up the last of the large batch of apples that our landlords kindly let us pick from one of their trees. Apple cinnamon cookies were born, and the world rejoiced! Continue reading


Salsa Verde + Cauli-rice Bake

It’s easy, it’s crammed with flavor, and it’s versatile! It’s a casserole, of course! Kind of. If you’re like me, the word “casserole” makes you gag a little, and your standard casserole is *certainly* not paleo-friendly, but never fear. This casserole (which we shall call a “bake” from now on) is delicious and perfectly paleo. Continue reading


“Honey Cloud” Pancake

I put quotes around “honey cloud” in the title because the texture ended up a little more dry and dense than such a description would have you believe, but that’s due to the change in ingredients that I made in order to make this a paleo recipe. Continue reading


Stuffed Portabellas

I find the portabella mushroom to be a bit on the spendy side, but I also find it to be a bit on the versatile and delicious side, so it’s worth it to me.

This recipe is perfect for any time of day and can be riffed on with a hundred different variations! Continue reading


Homemade Tomato Sauce

This tomato sauce was the result of quick experimenting and it turned out so good that I made it again… and again. Continue reading



Zoodles! How do I love thee? Let me count the ways! Your texture is so similar to fettuccine noodles! Your flavor is so mild and easily soaks up whatever sauce or seasoning I put on you!  Your calories are so low that I devour you without guilt!

Zoodles! Continue reading
