Sweet Potato, Apple and Sausage Breakfast Patties

Now would be the appropriate time for me to introduce you guys to my new online best friend/hero/slight love affair, Juli Bauer.  Juli writes PaleOMG which has long been one of my favorite paleo blogs to read.  She’s got an awesome arsenal of recipes that I copy often, and not to mention she’s f-ing hysterical.

Bacon Laced Brussel Sprouts

I’m all about giving credit where credit is due.  And right now credit is definitely due to one of my best friends and her fiance.  She came up with this bacon brussel sprout goodness and was nice enough to spread the wealth and share it with me.  When she was explaining it to me at […]

Chorizo Mini Meatloaves with Chipotle Tomato Relish

Excuse the language but: I’m back bitches. I know I’ve totally neglected this (along with all of my other hobbies) while I’ve been getting adjusted to the first six weeks of my crazy new job.  But now that I feel like I’ve gotten everything under control (and spent most of post-Thanksgiving getting all of this […]

“Kitchen Sink” Chicken Salad

We’ve all been in that moment: you open your fridge, looking for something to eat.  There isn’t anything made, but you do have 1/2 of a red onion, two stalks of asparagus, one leaf of kale, and a leftover chicken breast all about to go bad in like 10 minutes unless you eat them immediately.  […]

Breakfast, snack, or even dessert!

Pumpkin Coffee Muffins

Ohhh fall.  To be honest, I was never a big fan of fall until I became an adult.  I hated when school started, I didn’t like when it got cold, and Halloween/Thanksgiving is my least favorite holiday combo.  However, I’ve grown up to appreciate lots of great things about fall: football season, comfy knit sweaters […]

Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Pasta with Steak

Paleo madelinettes, I have really missed the sense of peace and happiness that I feel when I sit down to share a recipe with all of you.  I genuinely apologize for the brief hiatus I have taken – I had a job switch, a great vacation (although not too paleo), a torn meniscus and a […]

Spicy Meatballs in Simmer Sauce

When I was little, some of my earlier memories are sitting on the counter watching my mom cook.  Of course, being the food lover that I am, I was always very into being the “taste tester” and going around and tasting the contents of each and every pot and pan.  The messier the better.  My mom […]

So hard to wait 45 minutes...

Pecan Crusted Chicken with Mustard Date Sauce

As I mentioned yesterday, we served our pesto spaghetti squash with an AMAZING new recipe of pecan crusted chicken rolled in my mustard date sauce.  Inspiration struck when my friend Gus came up to me at the gym and said, “We did this pecan crusted chicken last night, but you know what would make it […]

Perfect summer accompaniment

Pesto Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash is one of my favorite paleo foods.  Unfortunately, because it takes so long to bake in the oven (about 30-45 mins), it’s not something I typically make on the weekdays.  On weekdays I try to keep my cooking time to 20 minutes in the kitchen in any hope of keeping dinner time before […]
