Egg Roll Up: Bacon, Basil + Greens (Whole30, Paleo, Keto, LCHF)

Not My Genius Idea… But A Genius One None The Less! The first time I saw an egg roll up was from Eat Drink Paleo, and I was in AWE of the simple genius of the idea! The reshaping of whole food ingredients into a hand held, fun, delicious and filling meal… that right there is my jam! Case in point: my paleo sushi rolls. Luckily I always have eggs on hand. Then I just grabbed whatever else was lurking in my fridge. Bacon. Arugula. Oh, Basil! Mayo. A little…

Flourless Avocado Brownies (paleo, keto, low carb, grain free)

How A ¬†Brownie Is Born This recipe came about one night after dinner. My son really wanted dessert and I wan’t about to give him some sugar laden treat right before bed time. Like a mad scientist I began to throw random things into my blender. Made a batter, poured it into a ramekin and baked it in my little counter top oven (I love that thing). It was pretty good. The consistency was great, but it needed more cocoa. Either way, it satisfied my kids sweet tooth and peaked…

Huevos Ranch: Green Casserole

Artisan Tropic When Artisan Tropics reached out to me I was pretty stoked. Not only because plantain chips are my favorite vice, but their cassava strips are the closest thing to potato chips I will ever be able to eat. For my AIP folks, their products are perfect! The cinnamon plantain chips are to die for, a fantastic sweet treat! I actually couldn’t help myself… I made two recipes. I really wanted to use the cinnamon plantain chips AND the cassava strips. I couldn’t make up my mind. Like a…

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies: Real Salt & Almond (Keto, Paleo, Sugar-free)

Always Striving For The Perfect Cookie I’m going to confess something to you all, I didn’t always know how to bake. My cooking and restaurant experience always led me to the savory side of the kitchen. I learned… well taught myself to bake when my son was about to turn one. Yup. Smash cakes were my baking in. A lot of Jack’s little friends had food intolerance’s and mostly still nourished off the boob… so store bought, gluten-full, sugary cake was a no go. Anyway long story short, I taught…

15 Minute Cauliflower Carbonara with Dorot! (Paleo, Low Carb, Keto)

The Little Gems of The Freezer Isle I use A LOT of garlic. At least three cloves in most of my meals. It’s a hassle. For some reason, no matter if I just cleaned the kitchen and/or the floor, prepping garlic and herbs for my meals is like instant disaster. How can these tiny, tasty little things get EVERYWHERE?!?!?! Seriously, it blows my mind. Anyway, enter DOROT! When I got the email to work with them I was delighted, and then kind of perplexed that I hadn’t seen Dorot at…

Protein Shake Cookies

Superior Nutrition, In A Cookie Version 1.0 of these was conceived while I was on a Whole30 so I couldn’t even taste them. But by the way my toddler gobbled them up I figured they tasted good. I shared the recipe on the disappearing videos on Instagram. I saved the recipe in the Notes section on my phone as I had the full intention to make these for myself when my Whole30 was over. Jack woke up with a severe hankering for breakfast cookies. I wanted to make something that…

Beefed Up Fried Rice!

Good Meat I made this recipe for Pre Brands Beef. I love them. Not only are they super nice folks, but their grass fed beef is top notch. Seriously. The best. Recently they contracted me to develop a few recipes for them, which I’m thrilled to do. Any chance to play with good meat, I’m all over it. Ok, I’m aware of the suggestive nature of my last sentence. Ha! Would it be highly inappropriate to throw out an “that’s what she said”? I swear, I’m a total feminist…. with…

Lemon Thyme Custard

A Little Bowl of Nostalgia Growing up my mother always made us natilla,¬†especially in the winter time. Not that is was super cold in Miami in the winter, but for us warm blooded Cubans, those chilly nights in the 50F’s waranted something extra yummy. I’m pretty sure most people let their custard cool off and then let it set in the fridge. We always had it warm, straight from the pot in a sort of spoon sword fight with my sister, or quickly distributed in mugs and gobbled up hot,…
