As if our food requirements weren’t complicated enough, my husband recently decided to try the keto diet. So far, my favorite super keto recipe is by far fathead pizza. Why keto you ask? Primarily for weight loss, which (spoiler alert) has totally worked for him so far. After he was laid off last month, Mr. […]
My husband, Mr. Meaty, makes a mean Bacon Carbonara. It’s one of the first things he made me for dinner when we were dating. And it is delicious. Bacon has always been my meat weakness. And now that I’m a chicken-and-baconatarian, I am enjoying the flexibility of bacon. Since I’m unfortunately gluten-free as well, we […]
Vegetable chowder is one of our all-time favorite meals. And now we’re doing it Paleo-style, so it’s gluten-free and grain-free soup. Enjoy!
OK, we’ve tried A LOT of macaroni and cheese recipes in this family since improving our food choices and going without the blue box. I mean A LOT of recipes, check out all our Macaroni Recipes for a few examples. Before now, our family favorite was this Easy Cheese Sauce poured over macaroni. Obviously unbaked macaroni […]
We’ve been getting some beautiful rainbow carrots in our CSA box lately (ours are purple, yellow, orange and some are a bit chartreuse). So the kids and I have been enjoying julienned carrots dipped in yogurt a lot. We decided to make an extra special dip last week from our fun book, The Outrageously Big Activity, Play and […]
Mac and Cheese is a vegetarian potluck favorite. But it doesn’t always have the prettiest presentation. The simple, yet somehow I’ve never tried it before solution? Place slices of tomato on top prior to baking for color contrast and bonus nutrients! I found this little gem of a suggestion in one of my thrift store […]
We found this crazy book at a garage sale a couple of years ago, called The Outrageously Big Activity, Play and Project Book. It’s a British import so there are a lot of craft and recipe ideas that I haven’t come across in American books. The kids love the book and ask to make something out […]
I used to be a bit of a Papa John’s Cheese Sticks junkie. And the garlic butter sauce? Uh, yum! But, once I started eating more whole foods and cooking most of our food at home, we didn’t order cheese sticks or pizza much. One day last year, we were congratulating ourselves for a big […]
I love pesto. It’s delicious, healthy and relatively easy to make. I’ve made a Spinach Pesto and a Vegan Kale Pesto on top of the “usual” basil pesto. I, by far, like the greens pestos more than basil pesto. So, when I got a bunch of rainbow chard in my CSA box recently, I knew I could make a better than basil pesto. Plus, it’ll be pretty because of those lovely magenta stalks.
Instead of breading and frying these jalapeno poppers, I wrapped them in egg roll wrappers and baked them in the oven. Much simpler, and probably a lot healthier, than the breaded and fried version.
