Crockpot Apple Butter

I’ve been promising to get this recipe posted for what feels like ages. I should have just posted it immediately after making a batch for gifts for the holidays, but I kept forgetting the adjustments I made to a found recipe until now. So those of you that got a jar of Snarfy’s Deluxe Apple…

Fake Kentucky Hot Browns

I say they’re fake because I starting looking into what the real deal might be after seeing one of those recipe videos that are all the rage on Facebook right now. According to Wikipedia, a Kentucky Hot Brown (or Hot Brown) “…is an open-faced hot sandwich of turkey and bacon, covered in Mornay sauce…” and…

Pulled Pork Burritos

Why didn’t I think to do this sooner? There are so many food trucks that exist in the world that are already converting things into burritos, like Chicken Tikka Masala burritos and Sisig burritos so why not use up all this extra pulled pork we had laying around by turning it into burrito-y goodness? I rolled…

Updates, Things, M A G I C…

It’s been a long time… yeah yeah yeah. I always have an explanation but I’m tired of it feeling like excuses. We all get busy, we all neglect things that we would rather be doing but can’t do because of these things called “Responsibilities” or whatever… But I was also considering moving the site for…

Sloppy Mo’s (’cause it’s mo’ betta than Joe’s)

Who doesn’t love Sloppy Joes? I always used to wonder why people would use packets or cans of sloppy joe sauce growing up because I learned how to make them from scratch thanks for a cookbook for children that I once had. The ingredients were so easy, I couldn’t figure out why anyone would want…

Chicken and Dumplings

The weather is getting cooler, right? Maybe not in California exactly, but we can have wishful thoughts. Fortunately it is getting cooler in the evening, so at least dinner can still be all nice and warm and comforting and autumny. Chicken and Dumplings 1 whole chicken, washed and cut into quarters water 3 onions, cut…

Avocado Truffles

Sometimes I get an incredible craving for chocolate, but when you’re trying to watch what you’re eating, it’s not exactly in your best interest to pig out on the stuff. I came across this recipe somewhere and lost the original, so unfortunately I can’t link it up like I normally would. There are a lot…

Chopped Thai Salad with Coconut-Curry Dressing

Um, yes. This. So much yes. Make it. I was looking at recipe collections one day for some ideas. I feel like I’ve been in a little bit of dry streak with my recipe game, so I needed to try some new stuff that fits the diet and makes me think outside the box a…

Food Porn: Disneyland Cheddar Cheese Corn “Dog”

Archaellys and I were in Disneyland recently, which means all diet and healthier eating goes out the window. With the amount of steps you’re racking up on your FitBit, you can afford to indulge a little bit anyway, right? Well one of the days in the park, Arc and I decided to get corn dogs…

Hawaiian Sweet Potatoes

These have nothing to do with being Hawaiian except that it’s in the vein of calling things with pineapple “Hawaiian” – like I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure what we call a Hawaiian pizza (canadian bacon/ham with pineapple) isn’t actually from Hawaii. Y’know, just saying and all. Like how German Chocolate Cake isn’t…

Another Spaghetti Squash Creation

Mission: make healthy dinner quick with what’s on hand, which happens to be primarily ground turkey and spaghetti squash… aaaand GO! Now before some of you go all “WHAT?! There’s butter and cream in the recipe! How is that GOOD for you??” These are generally good fats that help with nutrient absorption and good fats…

MAKE THIS: Mexican Chocolate Pots de Crème (from Nom Nom Paleo)

So I made these Mexican Chocolate Pots de Crème the other day for Mother’s Day and THEY ARE AMAZING!!!  They’re also paleo (aka dairy free) and without all the added sugar and… just super duper good. They’re so good I forgot to take a picture of the ones that I made before they made their…
