Salsa Verde

This weekend, we celebrate my favorite person on the planet’s 29th birthday. Matt is my husband, BFF, adventure partner, biggest supporter, and also a huge salsa snob. Pretty early into our relationship, I went to visit Matt in the city and he sent me home with a jar of fresh salsa. I think that’s when…

Zucchini Fritters (Paleo)

I guess it’s zucchini week around here! Earlier this week, I posted my Paleo Zucchini Muffins and now I’m ready to get savory. These Zucchini fritters are perfect for breakfast, lunch, and dinner- you can make a big batch and heat them up throughout the week. It doesn’t get better than that! These zucchini fritters…

Paleo Zucchini Blueberry Muffins

It’s zucchini season! Sadly, we do not have any zucchinis growing in our garden, but Matt brought one home from work the other day that was bigger than my arm. He is not a zucchini lover like I am, but he is a huge fan of zucchini bread. Riddle me that. There are so many…

How to Brew Kombucha: Part 2

The actual process of brewing Kombucha takes about 10-14 days per cycle, depending on a few different factors. The temperature in your kitchen, the age of your SCOBY, how much starter liquid (very strong Kombucha) your SCOBY comes with, and the size of the batch you are brewing all affect the length of time each…

Herbed Turkey Meatballs (Dairy-Free)

We’re more than halfway through July – What! –  and I am up to my eyeballs in fresh herbs. It’s a great problem to have, but what do I do with them all? These herbed turkey meatballs kill two birds with one stone by using whatever fresh greens you have growing as well as helping…

Strawberry Ice Cream (Dairy-Free)

I have been pining for an ice cream maker for years, but could never commit to buying one because I knew our kitchen didn’t have the space. Tiny kitchen problems. Every time I brought it up, Matt’s first question was “where is it going to go?” and I never had a good answer. Matt’s parents…

How to Brew Kombucha: Part 1

Have you jumped on the kombucha train yet? I’ve been drinking GT’s kombucha for a few years now and never really thought about brewing my own. It’s convenient to grab at the grocery store and there are so many brands available now there’s always new stuff to try. But with each bottle costing at least…

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp (GF, Nut-Free & Dairy-Free)

This week is a big one. Matt and I celebrate our two year anniversary today, he graduates with his MBA on Friday, and we move to Minnesota on Saturday. As I anxiously await this impending craziness, I am also filled with gratitude for all the good things in our life. We closed on our home…

Grilled Five Spice Chicken

It’s almost officially Summer, and you know what that means- Grilling Season! To me, Summer is synonymous with sitting on the patio sipping Sangria and grilling dinner every night. I am extra thrilled about it this year, because we will have an actual grill on an actual patio instead of smoking up our tiny apartment…

Glorious Morning Muffins (GF & Dairy-Free)

Glorious Morning Muffins remind me of play dates at the cafe around the corner from my childhood home. Mom would walk us over to meet up with friends on rainy mornings, and the sweet old man behind the counter always knew our order. He’d bring over freshly-baked Glorious Morning Muffins, hot chocolates topped with a…
