Cinnamon Apple Banana Bread

Cinnamon Apple Banana Bread

My favorite bread hands down is banana bread, especially when its Paleo. Let’s be honest, banana bread is one of the few Paleo breads that doesn’t taste like cardboard! When I am craving sweets or just bread in general, Paleo banana bread always comes to the rescue. I decided to mix up my banana bread by making a Cinnamon Apple […]

Perfect Filet Mignon

Perfect Filet Mignon

There is nothing better than a good filet mignon. Ever since I was a kid this was my favorite kind of steak since it is the most tender cut of beef. A good filet mignon practically melts in your mouth. But for many, it is intimidating to cook a steak at home, especially if you spend a good amount of […]

Instant Pot Beef Stew

Instant Pot Beef Stew

Here in California the weather is starting to turn and already feel like fall. By the time it is dinner time the weather already drops to below 70. This has put me in the mood for all food things having to do with fall, from Kabocha Squash, to Pumpkin Spice, and mostly my Instant Pot Beef Stew. I have talked […]

Winter Butternut Squash Salad

Winter Butternut Squash Salad

Happy Holidays! On the menu for Christmas Eve this year is my Winter Butternut Squash Salad! Butternut squash is one of my favorite starches around this time of year, but I wanted to do something to make it fresh and spice it up.

Coconut Snickerdoodles

Coconut Snickerdoodles

One of the hardest Paleo desserts to make are cookies because of the chemistry behind the typical gluten and sugar filled cookies. This holiday season I was determined to make a festive Paleo cookie that is actually good and came up with these great Coconut Snickerdoodles! They are fluffy, taste like Christmas, and a great alternative to the classic snickerdoodle. […]

Shakshuka

Shakshuka

If you have never had Shakshuka before, this is a must for your next brunch, breakfast, or lunch. It is a traditional Israeli and Middle Eastern dish which is essentially stewed tomatoes, peppers, and aromatics with eggs. I have had Shakshuka many ways and have always loved it. This method is super easy, one pot, and all stovetop. Give it […]

Zucchini Burger Buns

Zucchini Burger Buns

I have had this recipe for a while and it is my go to replacement for bread. The subtle taste of zucchini is the perfect vegetable to fluff this “bread” up and gives it the stability to pick it up like real bread, unlike vegetables like cauliflower. It is perfect for burgers, eggs benedict, toasting, and pretty much anything! I […]

Coconut Cauliflower Sticky Rice

Coconut Cauliflower Sticky Rice

At culinary school we make a lot of rice. From rice pilaf, to risotto, to stir fried rice, I have done it all. But my favorite so far has been coconut white rice. I am usually not a big rice person, but anything with coconut in it instantly becomes my favorite. I decided to try to mimic it with cauliflower […]

Charred Cauliflower Steaks

Charred Cauliflower Steaks

One of my favorite vegetarian/vegan dishes is a cauliflower steak. It is one of the few entree dishes I like that don’t include meat. It may seem boring at first, but with the proper sauce and garnishments it will soon become your favorite dish! The caramelization/char on the cauliflower pairs perfectly with the red pepper sauce to make a vegetarian […]

Paleo Protein Pancakes

Paleo Protein Pancakes

It is a tradition for me that on weekends I make an extra special breakfast for myself. It varies between cauliflower oatmeal, smoothie bowls, and my favorite, my Paleo Protein Pancakes. These pancakes are high in protein, have no flour or sugar, and always hit my craving for a sweeter breakfast just right. I think of them as a mix […]
