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…

Homemade Croissants

Not exactly diet friendly or gluten safe here, but I was pretty convinced that I am not a baker. It’s really a lot of chemistry and science, but I’m terrible at creating or adjusting recipes for baked goods. So what did I decide to try doing? Yeah, let’s do croissants. Croissants. Like one of the…

Beanless Chicken Chili with Cauliflower

It’s been a long tiiiiime… since I posted anythiiiiing… Sorry about that guys. Life happened. I was busy adjusting to my new food life the last few months, trying to get better at understanding what works for a “Lean and Green” meal on my Medifast plan. I’ve also been thinking up and researching new recipes….

Healthier General Tso’s Chicken

So this recipe isn’t totally 100% on plan for me, but it’s delicious and I figured the extra little bit of non-plan items I was getting wouldn’t hurt too bad.  I really wanted some Chinese-ish for dinner (even though General Tso’s Chicken is totally an American thing… I think…), so I made a sauce that…

A Few Changes and My Own Come to Jesus Moment with Food

So I have to admit a few things here.  I originally started this blog to share the healthier versions of recipes that I was creating and cooking.  I used to follow a loose paleo/primal style food plan with room for exceptions.  I also used to take pride in discovering and figuring out different ways of…

Happy Thanksgiving!

It might technically not be Thanksgiving day anymore, but that doesn’t mean that I’m not thankful.  I finally woke up long enough from my post-feast food haze to make this image for you guys, wishing you a (now belated) happy thanksgiving and showing you my feast foods from this year. The food was pretty much…

PANCAKES!

Yeah.  Not Gluten Free.  I’ve yet to try this with gluten free flours, but since a little gluten is going to inconvenience me more than do harm to me, sometimes I just go all out gluten cheat day.  This is a tried and true pancake recipe.  I hate using a mix, even though it’s reminicent…

Gluten Free Corn Dog Bites

Corn dogs are amazing.  That’s all that really needs to be said about them.  Except that I want to add that homemade corn dogs are even better than amazing.  I’m still adjusting this recipe a little bit for the batter.  The corn meal is a little too gritty for my tastes so I’m testing doing…

Missing Recipe: Char Siu Marinade

A while back I posted about making Char Siu but I had lost the marinade recipe.  I lost it so hard that I can’t even find the original recipe online that I modified.  So I had to test again and I have a new one.  I’m testing the sauce today with pieces of pork butt, rather…
