I’m loving this new addition of breakfast noodles to my morning rotation. Breakfast in a gluten-free American home can be a big change. Cereal and toast is usually out. So I’ve been eating a lot of eggs for breakfast since making the switch. And I added in bacon pretty regularly when I shifted from vegetarian […]
Our family holiday meal tradition is a little different. Since my sister and I both chose to be vegetarians throughout much of our youth, Mom made a mean cheese lasagna for Christmas dinner. Now, I can’t eat traditional pasta but I do eat a little more meat. So this year, for Christmas Eve dinner, we’re […]
My grandparents were German (on my mom’s side). Like, fresh off the boat around the turn of the century German. So, they and their families brought some absolutely amazing recipes with them. Since both passed before I was old enough to cook much, I learned most of their recipes from a cookbook Mom passed down […]
Do you love bacon? I do, I call it my gateway meat. It’s the one meat I always liked. We buy some amazing smoked bacon locally from Heywood’s Provisions. It’s incredible, they dry rub and smoke it over hickory. Yum! Do you also love honey? This delicious oven-baked candy bacon combines honey granules with bacon and bakes […]
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 […]
I’ve been experimenting with flexitarianism in an attempt to try out a Paleo diet, and eventually an Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) Paleo diet. So far, I’ve had success with chicken, and really crispy bacon. This recipe incorporates a new favorite of mine, zucchini noodles, and crispy bacon. This recipe is adapted from an eMeals.com recipe. It is fantastic. […]
This recipe is awesome. The major change I made is the “bacon,” for which I swapped in my new favorite, Bacony Quinoa.
The greatest part of this substitute is it’s a natural complete protein (quinoa) with a bit of bacony flavor added in. It’s awesome! AND, you can make it “crispy” by pan-frying the cooked quinoa. Awesome! I highly recommend giving this recipe a shot.
This is a great holiday meal without all the fuss of “real” twice-baked potatoes. Not having to stuff those little shells made twice-baked potatoes a much more everyday meal for us.
Today’s This Week’s Cravings theme is SHOW US YOUR ULTIMATE SANDWICH and I’m sharing one of our all-time favorites: Bacon Avocado Melt. It’s so incredible with mock bacon (and real bacon, too, for those of you who eat it). I’m hoping to create a whole foods meatless bacon salt substitute soon so I can make […]
