Chopped Greek Salad

It’s hot in the Bay Area. Like… waaaaaaaaaay hot. Nobody wants to cook, and if it weren’t for basic life necessities, I’m not sure we’d be eating. That’s when we end up eating a lot of cold and easy foods, like salad. Only thing is I get tired of traditional salads pretty fast, so I…

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,…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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,…

Food Porn: Bacon Mac and Cheese

Hnnnnggggghhhhhhh… bacon. This is food porn because the recipe for mac and cheese is here and all I did differently was add bacon and frozen peas.  But wait, this bacon for this particular shot is actually a BACON BOWL.  I’m not going to lie, you totally don’t need a Bacon Bowl.  You can do something…

Garlic Bread Pizza: Revisited

The obvious: I’ve been crazy busy lately.  This means I haven’t been posting regularly again.  I’m very sorry. I’m doing my best to get caught up over the next several days.  However, life has just been that busy.  Thanks for putting up with me and my poor little neglected food blog.  Some day I’ll actually…
