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…

Summer Chop Salad

Happy Memorial Day weekend! I’ve been MIA enjoying the spring weather – finally! This weather has me dreaming of the upcoming long Summer days, so it’s only fitting that I share my favorite summertime salad. I’m back with this crunchy, colorful, hearty summer salad that’s the perfect side dish for any barbecue. I have been…

Shrimp & Cauliflower “Grits” (Paleo)

Happy weekend! The sun is out and the weather is ever so slowly creeping up to an acceptable Spring temperature, just in time for Easter Sunday. It’s been a while since I last shared a recipe- Matt and I have been busy finding and buying our first home! It’s been a very exciting and emotionally…

Grandma’s Stuffed Peppers (Paleo)

Today, my Grandma Lynne turns 81. I look up to her for many reasons, one of the most important reasons being that she helped found my love for cooking. My grandma is the kind of cook who has a handful of recipes that she makes flawlessly, and usually sticks to those. I have so many memories…

Perfect Pesto

It’s St. Patrick’s Day weekend, so I’m sharing one of my favorite green recipes with you before Matt and I pack our bags and escape to the beach for the next week 🙂 Pesto is one of Matt’s favorite foods- growing up, his mom made it for him with the basil and parsley they grew…

Sweet & Spicy Chicken Drumsticks (Paleo)

Due to my type-A tendencies, I’ll usually wait until I have the exact photos I want before posting a recipe. However, 3 weeks ago, Matt and I became the annoying dog parents who spend every waking moment talking about (and to) our BFF Blue. Who has time for perfect pictures of chicken legs when you…

Sweet Potato Hash & Eggs (Paleo)

This month, I teamed up with my amazing Kickboxing instructor, Kathleen, who’s hosting a 14 day #freeselflove challenge. She asked me to share how I show self love through food. She’ll be posting on her site this week – click here to see! This was the first recipe I really took the time to create a tablescape…

Paleo Rosemary Pecan Chicken Salad

Fun fact- chicken salad is my favorite. You can use just about any fruits, vegetables, and seasonings you have in the fridge, and it’s great for meal prepping lunches at the beginning of the week. I had fresh rosemary and some leftover smoked chicken breast in the fridge the other day, and threw this new…

Slow Cooker Ham & Lentil Soup (GF & Dairy-Free)

Yesterday’s wind chill hit -51 degrees. Everyone’s talking about Chiberia but all I can hear is “soup soup soup soup.” I’m sure most people associate freezing temps with comforting food, but for me, cold weather has an especially strong connotation with my mom’s soup. Growing up, snow days were always the best because my mom…

Shepherd’s Pie (Paleo & Whole30)

In the spirit of the impending snow storm that is about to hit the Midwest and Northeast parts of the country this weekend, I thought it would be fitting to share another one of my comforting dinner go-to’s. My Paleo spin on a comfort food classic is sure to keep you feeling warm and happy…
