Instant Pot Creamy Tomato Basil Soup (Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Paleo, Whole30, Vegan and Slow Cooker Options Noted)

This time of the year we eat a lot of soup.  Between colder temperatures, hungry teenagers and athletes in our home; soup provides a great way to get a lot of nutrition in one little package, while filling bellies and warming the body.  The unfortunate reality is that in order to really get the flavors […]

Vegan 3-Bean Instant Pot Chili

  This recipe is long over due… I have had this recipe in my pocket for some time now, and frankly, it has become a weekly favorite in our home.  Which is interesting, because if you look at the history of my shares, you’ll note that our family is primarily Paleo and beans are not […]

Allergy Friendly Taco Seasoning

  First, let me say…yes, I am still here! As mentioned late last year, my family was blessed with the opportunity in August, 2016, to help care for and provide for my cousin’s (then) 2 month old baby. I am pleased to share that he is still with us, but as you can surely understand…adding […]

Pho Reals

  It’s that time of the year…the changing seasons give our immune systems a run for their money. As always, there are two major defenses I offer up, oils and bone broth.  Daily supplements, probiotics and healthy eating matter, of course…but when you’re in the midst of a battle there is no more magical combination […]

Oven Roasted, Herbed Prime Rib of Pork

  It is fairly rare that I come across something I feel I should have known about (food wise) and yet have never tried… Recently I was gifted a nice rack of Prime Rib of Pork.  While I have enjoyed and roasted many Prime Ribs in my day, Prime Rib of Pork was something I […]

Paleo Citrus and Fruit Muffins For March Muffin Madness

A few years ago, my friend Shirley from gfe-gluten free easily, began a series called March Muffin Madness.  Just as I was honored to be able to participate in this event during its inception, I am thrilled to be a part of it again today!    Just as it is with most things, March Muffin […]

Sweet and Savory Breakfast Hash

Some days you wake up and just know that you’re hungry for something high-powered but egg free.  Some days you really, really desire something that is both sweet and savory. And some days you know you’ll need to make a lot all at once to make your efforts worthwhile (and to ensure delicious leftovers!!).  For […]

Paleo Chicken Parmesan

Life, as we all know, can sometimes become so overwhelming. That doesn’t always mean bad or negative things are happening…it just simply means our plate is overflowing. Mine has been overflowing for quite some time, hence the lack of sharing here! Recently though, I’ve begun to realize that most of my overflow is self inflicted.  […]
