I think Denver might have the best gluten-free options of any city. There was a delicious restaurant that had gluten-free cuban sandwiches that were amazing. The bread was cuban-style, not just regular white bread or a bun. It was perfect, and I’d get a side of plantain chips. It’s one of the meals that I’ve missed since moving to Tucson.Read More
Hi friends! Look at me, writing a blog post! I know it’s been a while, and I’ve actually been testing and photographing recipes that I never posted, haha. But I’m back! I’ve been working through some difficult things, so I appreciate the time away. But I’m feeling more and more like myself again, or perhaps like my new self, so I’m emerging a bit more. I was eager to get back to this space and feel inspired again.
Now, Easter was yesterday, raise your hand if you’ve got some leftover ham! We have a lot! Thankfully ham is super versatile, great for breakfast, on pizza, in this Instant Pot Hambone Soup . It’s also easy to freeze for later. But, I also love ham salad, and it’s seriously perfect for meal prep and packing into lunch boxes.Read More
Hi friends! It’s been a while. If you follow me on Instagram you know that I’ve taken a step back for a moment. I’ve been going through some really difficult personal stuff recently and trying to just take care of myself and do what’s best for me. While I love sharing delicious food with you in this space, it does require emotional output. I’ve felt so torn because I want to be here with you, but I just didn’t feel like I had the emotional bandwidth to focus on this right now.Read More
I can’t remember how I got inspired to make this recipe, I think I just wanted another way to use kimchi. But it doesn’t really matter, because I’m just super thrilled that I made it. These little meatballs are delicious! They’ve got a bit of tang from the kimchi, umami from the porcini mushrooms, and just lots of deliciousness.Read More
A friend fo mine has been on the AIP diet for several years. It has been a life saver for her, but is quite restrictive. It includes no nuts or seeds (including seed-based spices), no nightshades, no eggs, no dairy, no grains, no legumes…..anything else? I may be forgetting things. But the point is, while it’s a difficult diet to stick to, for people really struggling with autoimmune diseases it can be a game changing healer.Read More
If you’re following me on social media, you may know that in less than a week I am beginning to transition my diet to keto. It’s something I’ve needed for a long time, but I finally feel like I can do it. So when I was thinking about the kind of food I’ll be eating, of course I thought of ribs. Tender, flavorful, falling off the bone, smothered in finger-lickin’ sauce. The problem is, most of those finger-licking’ sauces are pretty sugary.Read More
