Seared Scallops with Bacon, Pepper and Chimichurri Relish (Paleo!)

It is hot, hot… HOT these days. Thank goodness for a grill, because I will NOT be turning on my oven these days. I had off all last week! It started out as a 4th of July beach vacay with some fam/friends, and then ended as a staycation where I planned to clean, get up …

I woke up and thought to myself yesterday… is there a full moon soon? I’ve had the weirdest thing happen. Not weird, actually… just inconvenient. Some back-story that no one asked for… I really, really enjoy keeping my car clean. Well, the outside, anyway. My dad was meticulous about washing and keeping cars clean, as …

I spent a lot of time thinking today about, now that things are opening up, how quickly summer has been going by. I remember this time last year – I was admittedly too much of a scaredy-cat to *go* places that weren’t outside, and it just feels so good to have some normalcy again. I’ve …

Summer Strawberry Crumble (paleo, with a vegan option!)

Last week, it was crazy hot. Like, so hot, I considered experimenting if the whole frying-an-egg thing would work on my car.  (Just kidding, I’d rather die than put something like a raw egg on my car… you know that.) But – it still got me thinking, is it unseasonably warm? Am I just old? Or, …

Teriyaki Ginger Turkey Meatballs (Paleo, Keto-friendly!)

Hey y’all. What’s poppin. I don’t know if it was just an overwhelming need for a “break”, but I’ve had a renewed sense of “why the hell am I ignoring this blog when I love cooking, cook every day anyway, and need to document it”, so I am back. If you follow me on Instagram, …

Asian-Inspired Broccoli Cabbage Slaw (Paleo, Keto-Friendly, Vegan!)

I always say I’ll keep my momentum going with making posts and recipes to share, but often times I just get so busy that I completely forget. I love to make things, but in all honesty, a lot of what I make either doesn’t make the cut aesthetically, or I eat it before I even …

Roasted Cauliflower Leek Soup (paleo, with vegan option!)

I was really hoping by this point in the year that it would’ve been a little chillier. I’m ready to turn my A/C off…. But here we are. For my non-US friends…. What’s it like to not stress-eat and go about your merry day, this week? We’ve been on edge waiting for the results of …

Fall Harvest Salad with Parmesan, Cranberries and Pecans (Gluten-Free!)

Y’all it’s fall! And it was WINDY today! I’ve been hitting the gym pretty hard, so I’m not sure if that’s why I’m more hungry, or… if I am nearing hibernation. But I’ve needed to make some more heartier lunches and dinners…. So with a good protein, I’ve been enjoying some really good salads. It’s …

Lemon Dill Salmon Cakes with Cucumber Tzatziki Sauce (Gluten-Free with Paleo Option!)

Wowzer! I sure do go missing a lot. I have spurts of motivation, then I start working on something else, then I ……get sidetracked altogether, and here we are. One thing I’d like to update you all on – if you didn’t know before, now ya do – I do Reiki sessions, and other energetic …

Spicy Turkey Sausage Bolognese with Zoodles (Paleo!)

I can’t even believe that we are at the end of September. It feels like it was just March, and here we are, fall is moving in, the weathers better. I’m guessing most of you are aware that the US had a debate last night. If you watched it, you definitely didn’t get anything worthwhile …
