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 […]

Creamy Tuscan Chicken (Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Paleo, Keto)

  I have often said that just because one is dairy free does not mean that one does not crave creamy, luscious dishes in their life.  This Creamy Tuscan Chicken recipe is rich in healthy fats, high in protein, and when served as-is, perfectly perfect for a Keto or Paleo lifestyle (Whole30 friendly, even!!).  Served […]

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 […]

Fresh Watermelon, Cucumber and Tomato Salad

  The last couple of months have been crazy…between listing our house for sale, thereby restricting my time in the kitchen because everything has to be perfect for showings; to up and moving my family across the state, it’s been difficult to sit down and recipe develop/write the way I wish to do! My husband […]
