How I Came to Love Mac and Cheese

  There are Two Kinds of Mac and Cheese There are two schools of thought when it comes to macaroni and cheese. The first school believes that creaminess is king. The other thinks that the real king is a crisp topping. I am Switzerland. There is no bad macaroni...

Chilaquiles Paleo Style

One of my favorite Sunday brunch foods is Chilaquiles. Since the main ingredient for these babies is tortilla chips, it is 100% not an item you can eat when you are living that paleo life. However, since the wonderful people at Siete Foods developed a DELICIOUS corn free tortilla chip, these babies are BACK in my life. I’m so excited to share my paleo chilaquiles with you!

Spanish Style Shrimp and Garlic

  Gambas al Ajillo I think the first meal that hit me as "Spanish" is a classic tapa called gambas al ajillo. At that moment I realized it was going to be harder to navigate a Spanish menu than I anticipated. This was quite a surprise to me. I speak and read...

Tomatillo Salsa

I love a green salsa. If I get to choose between red and green… I go for green everytime. I love the tart, herby, spiciness of them. Don’t get me wrong I love a tomato based salsa as much as the next girl, but tomatillo salsa… well that has my heart!  You can’t make chilaquiles of any kind, nevermind paleo chilaquiles without salsa. My preference is a  smooth tomatillo salsa made in the simplest way possible, just simmer and blend! This recipe is simple to make and not very hot at all.

Cashew Crema

If you are like me and passing on most things dairy I think you will appreciate this lovely creamy Cashew Crema! I like creamy things… but dairy makes me stuffy as all get out. When I have dairy in my life to any significant degree I end up with a stuffy nose, and generally feel a little bloated, so I have been working to limit my dairy intake to really special cheeses and replace all the rest with something plant-based.

Paleo Worchesteshire Sauce

Eating Paleo Can Be Tricky Why in the world does worchesteshire sauce even have sugar? How is it that we even need a paleo worchesteshire sauce? I shouldn't be surprised. The first thing I learned when I decided to go paleo was that sugar is everywhere! There is sugar...

Chimol: Honduras’ Answer to Pico de Gallo

Raw Onions and Green Bell Peppers are Gross Ok, I am just gonna be honest with ya'll. This recipe for Chimol is basically a bowlful of onion and green bell pepper. I hate raw onion and I hate raw green bell peppers. If I eat raw onion, I taste it for days. I can brush...

Lemon Caulirice with Spinach

Giving Up Rice When I went Paleo, I had a really hard time with the idea of giving up rice. I mean, I missed pasta, but giving up rice seemed like I was cooking with one hand tied behind my back. Rice has always been my go-to, quick and easy meal. I could always add...

Mustard Balsamic Lamb Chops

Tim makes the best lamb chops. For real. Lamb is not a food I am used to making. Since I went paleo I have eaten alot more lamb because its pretty easy to find grass-fed lamb. It is just not factory farmed like beef and pork. So for me it has become a super healthy...

Minty Buttery English Peas

I used to hate peas. I think we all at one time or another had to suffer the torture that are canned green peas. I'm not sure why anyone every conceded to eating these. They resemble fresh peas in no way whatsoever. Fresh (or frozed) English or green peas are sweet,...

Perfectly Paleo Breakfast Sausage

When I went paleo a few years back I was shocked to discover that sausage has sugar in it. WHY? Back then paleo and the Whole30 were not what they are today and getting products that were paleo or Whole30 friendly was a whole lot harder. I mail ordered bacon! I mean...

Tostones (or Cara de Gato)

Perfect Roast Potatoes

I love potatoes. Seriously, I have to be careful and not make too many or I will eat them all. That's any kind of potato, mashed, fried, roasted... whatever. So to me there is nothing sadder than the ubiquitous restaurant roated potato. They are not crispy. I'm not...
