Salisbury Steak and Mashed Cauliflower

Salisbury steak is a favorite in our house. I mean, who doesn’t like meat and gravy? Well, obviously non-meat eaters, but we all eat meat in this house. Essentially, this version of salisbury steak is a meatloaf patty done in a hurry. This certainly makes a great weeknight meal, but is impressive enough for a…

Instant Pot Pesto Chicken Stew

This started off as a “Can we try this?” from the future MIL. Usually, I try a recipe as written the first time and then make changes, but I felt like messing with this one right off the bat. I’d made something similar before so I felt like it was okay. Right off the bat,…

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

I tried overnight oats before and really wanted to like them. Unfortunately, whatever recipes I followed before just didn’t do it for me. I couldn’t hang with the texture, let alone the cold oats. I was never big on oatmeal before so I just kind of thought that oatmeal in any shape or form wasn’t…

Curried Air Fried Chicken Wings

Hi, I’m Snarfy and I’m a Chicken-Wing-A-Holic. I’m only enabling myself because I bought an air fryer recently and that makes having super crispy chicken wings easier than it should be. There’s a Vietnamese restaurant in my hometown that has curry chicken wings on their appetizer menu and I’ve never seen them anywhere else. They…

Avocado, Chicken, & Egg Salad

So I’ve been doing some clean eating meal plans with Johanna at Love Your Health¬†again to clean up after the delicious horror story that was eating around the holidays. In January, I did her free 5-day Whole Food Challenge with my whole family and some friends to get back in the habit of eating better….

Beef, Butternut Squash, and Barley Soup

I love my Instant Pot. I also have to admit that stovetop pressure cookers scare the crap out of me though. My mom used to cook soup in a stovetop pressure cooker when I was a kid because it would quickly make the most deliciously tender meat, but the sound would always freak me out…

Deconstructed Egg Rolls

Can we talk for a minute about how much I love egg rolls? Or any Asian dumpling, tart, or bun that comes delivered on a dim sum cart? Yeah, trying to be low carb while loving these things so much isn’t exactly easy. I could probably go for dim sum every weekend and be happy,…

Cassava Flour Waffles

Hi. It’s been a while. Like a long while. I’m not going to go into this long thing about why I’ve been neglecting this blog (again), but I will say that I’m trying to get over my post paralysis that’s triggered by self doubt. I always want to revamp this site because it’s never what…

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…
