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…

Copycat Secret Sauce

Arc just recently introduced me to the magical world of homemade Big Macs.  Dear lawdy pearl it’s been a loooooong time since I’ve had one of those.  I’ve really been making a effort to duplicate things at home rather than buying them because then at least I know exactly what I’m eating, even if it…

Fresh Garden Salsa

Over the summer at the Rumpus Room, Archaellys and I grew a few tomato plants and they seemed to ripen all at the same time.  What do you do with a metric asston of tomates?  Make salsa, of course! Now my only thing is that you really need to taste test as you go because…

Homemade Gluten Free Onion Rings

I love onion rings because they’re amazing.  What I don’t love is that stuffed up gluteny feel after pigging out on gluteny things.  So I found an awesome way to make onion rings myself and now the bad thing is I want to batter everything in this and fry it.  Total new problem.  Siiiiiiiiiigh.  But…
