Strawberry Turkey Burgers (Whole30, Paleo, Keto, Nut Free)

Summer time and the livin’s easy… These burgers are BURSTING with flavor! Perfect for cooking stove top or take it outside with your cast iron skillet and cook them up on the patio. Made with FRESH, simple ingredients like summer strawberries and fresh oregano these burgers are perfect any time of day. In a bun, over salad, crumbled into soup (in a box, with a fox, on a train, in the rain). Like Whoa These came about when I got a few stalks of oregano from my pals CSA. I…

Lemon Curd + Dark Chocolate Cake (Paleo, Gluten Free, Low Glycemic Treat)

I am so thrilled to be partnering with Bob’s Red Mill  this Spring!  It’s a wonderful time of the year for delicious, airy confections. Not to mention my dear boy turns four. When the folks at Bob’s said they were sending me THREE of their great baking flours I was over the moon!  They sent Unbleached White All Purpose Flour, 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour and the Paleo Baking Flour. I have used the 1 to 1 Gluten Free Blend before and I will tell you the results I…

Low Carb Single Serving Bread (Paleo, Gluten Free, Grain Free, Keto)

Almond Meal Bread A few weeks ago I was emailed by a paleo bread company, they wanted to send me some samples. Usually this makes me really happy… but as I inspected the ingredients I noticed all of their products contain potato starch. Alas, no paleo bread for me. Every. Single. One of the breads I have looked at has SOMETHING I can’t have. Granted… I know that’s a long list… but I was hopeful. Anywho… Almond meal and I have become besties. I got a 5lb, super fine, blanched…

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…

Strawberry Swirl Mug Cake (gluten free, paleo, grain free)

Mug, er Bowl Cake If you follow me on my Instagram stories or Snapchat you know my kid loves him some breakfast, especially pancakes in the morning…. but seriously, who has time to make pancakes before school on a regular basis, not this mama. However, I still want Jack to fill up with a hearty meal before school and paleo pancakes are a great vessel for that. So how can I get lots of belly filling, energy giving goodness into my little man in the wee morning hours without it…

Paleo Pancakes: legit (Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

Practice Makes Pancake I’ve been working on this pancake recipe for some time. A pancake recipe that I could thoroughly enjoy without feeling like crap afterward. A pancake recipe in which I could eat a proper portion and feel great afterward. If you’re new to my blog, let me fill you in… I need to watch my carb and sugar intake something fierce. Carbs and sugar, along with oh you know just a handful of other foods aggravate my autoimmune symptoms. While there are periods where I abstain from paleo…

Paleo Plantain Pancakes

I’d been holding off on posting this recipe to the blog. Why? Well, for selfish reasons. “They” say to hoard your best recipes for publication. Anything I share here is no longer book material because ya’ll have it for free. So, I’ve shared this recipe on Instagram and other fleeting social networks where it would soon be forgotten. Why share it now? Well my plans have changed! There’s lot of exciting stuff in store for Castaway Kitchen, but in the mean time… enjoy the shit out of these pancakes. They…

Moscato Mango Braised Short Ribs

This recipe is very similar to my Island Braised Short Ribs, but then again , it’s not. I followed the same method but worked with different ingredients. The result was a thicker sauce, sweeter taste and overall deliciousness. Not sure if I prefer one over the other, they are both great. Both are made with local ingredients and have lots of sweet tropical loving. I used mago, instead of papaya for these, really because they just showed up. Literally, a little girl showed up at my front door with a…

Low Carb Zucchini Fritters

Oodles of Zoodles! Lately zoodles are my BFF. They’re great for salads, as pasta substitute and come one, they’re fun to make! I can’t be the only one who has play-doh flash backs when cranking the spiralizer!?!? If you don’t have one yet and are wondering which one I use, it’s the Vegetti Pro. I like this one because it works really well, it has a suction cup thingy that sticks to the counter so you can apply adequate pressure when making the spirals, and it creates nice, even, long…

Handmade Cassava Flour Pasta

Buongiorno! Making homemade pasta has always been something I wanted to be good at. My step-father’s mother would visit from Argentina every few years when we were growing up. Her parents, who were from Italy, taught her to make handmade pasta, and she was an artist. Marta would spend her days in my mother’s kitchen working dough like a magician, weaving empanadas, fettuccine, raviolis, pies and the like. I marveled at the ease in which she created beautifully crafted dough. I just began to dabble in dough myself, I even…
