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
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
Who loves breakfast? I DO! Not necessarily at breakfast time, because let’s be honest, I’d rather be sleeping, but I’ll eat waffles and pancakes and stacks of bacon and home fries and poached eggs or fried eggs and fresh fruit any time of the day! And these Breakfast Fries are the perfect weekend breakfast, no matter what time of day you wake up.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
