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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Pizza Quinoa

I came across a recipe for a one-pot pizza quinoa and just kind of went from there. Totally random, thought it sounded good, but could see where I could change a few things.  What happened was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good.  OMG.  Yes.  And it was easy to make and pretty good for you.  Totally would recommend!  Duh,…

Kalua Pig

So… yeah… Kalua Pig.  Do I really need to say much more than it’s FREAKING AMAZING!?!  Imma just hop right into the recipe here, guys.  This is an easy one, and you don’t even need to build an imu in your backyard to roast that pig. Kalua Pig (in an oven) 1 5-7 pound pork…
