  • Southwestern Risotto
    Okay, I know that risotto is traditionally an Italian thing. And don’t get me wrong, I love me some Italian food, but sometimes I want some Mexican food, and I don’t want Spanish rice with it. So I thought I would do some experimenting with turning an Italian favorite of mine into a nice add-on

  • Creamy Spaghetti Squash with Sausage
    This is one of those meals where you clean out your fridge into the saute pan. 🙂 I had some Italian Sausage, onions, sweet peppers, mushrooms and cheese that needed to be used, so I combined it all with spaghetti squash. This is one of my favorite squash since it is so versatile, filling, and

  • Allergy Update and Appetizers
    It’s been a long time since I’ve given an update on my allergies and food situation. I have shared a lot of Paleo and AIP recipes over the years because that is primarily the type of food I eat, and that is due to the fact that I had some food allergies and intolerance to

  • I Ate My Way Through Europe
    In July of 2019, I had the opportunity to take a river cruise through Europe with my Mom and my good friends Penny and Becky. We flew into Amsterdam, then to Budapest, Hungary. We caught our boat in Budapest and then followed the Danube all the way to Germany. We stopped in Bratislava, Slovakia, Vienna,

  • My Favorite Cranberry Sauce
    As we are wrapping up 2019, I wanted to share this recipe with you. It is my go-to cranberry sauce. I serve it at Thanksgiving, but also whenever the mood strikes me! It is so good that I jar the leftovers (you can actually waterbath can them for long preservation) and eat it on waffles,

  • I’m Back!
    I am so sorry that I’ve been gone so long… we have a lot of catching up to do! The last year has been pretty busy. I have so much to tell you, but will keep this kind of brief since I’m covering a whole year in one post, and most of you probably don’t

  • Maui Italian Bake
    Hello friends! I know I have been quiet for a while. A really long  while. (SORRY!) Things have been a bit busy/crazy/exciting lately. So before I start this next recipe (which is totally worth waiting  for, I promise) let me catch you up on the last year. I have this guy I like… we’ll call

  • Chicken Marengo
    It has been a bit of a crazy week, and I feel like I haven’t been able to cook in days, so I was really looking forward to getting in the kitchen and making a mess tonight. The only problem was that I couldn’t figure what I felt like cooking. I decided on something with

  • Paleo Orange Chicken
    So you remember that really delicious staple of Chinese restaurants and take-out, Orange Chicken? With all the breading, delicious fried goodness, and sweet orange, sugar-filled sauce? Me too. And I can’t eat it anymore. But I can try and make a pretty good sub… This one turned out delicious. Sauteed chicken with a light orange

  • Zoodles and Bolognese
    Hello hungry internet peeps! I have another recipe for you today… Zoodles and Bolognese sauce. This is my absolute favorite sauce, and when I discovered my food allergies, I was heart-broken because I couldn’t have pasta anymore. How do you eat bolognese sauce without pasta? But then I discovered the beauty of vegetable noodles (like

  • Black Bean Chili with Mushrooms
    We had our annual craft night party this week, and I made some vegetarian Black Bean and Mushroom Chili to share. The ladies liked it and asked for the recipe, so here it is. 🙂 First things first, if you are using dried black beans, soak them overnight. Just do it. It’s longer than the

  • Chicken Sausage and Brown Rice “Risotto”
    I made this for lunch on Tuesday and just had to share it… It’s one of those meals that I kind of threw together. I was craving risotto, but I can’t actually eat any dairy, and because I am on another Whole Life Challenge team (www.wholelifechallenge.com) for the next 52 days, I only get brown
