Asian Meatza (dairy free, paleo, keto, Whole30)

If you read my last post… which you can HERE. You know I’m on my 5th Whole30! Whoot Whoot! I posted my meal prep + grocery list on there too! Trying to be super organized for me and helpful for you all this round! So far, crushing it…. but it’s only day 2 (haha). What I LOVE about this MEAZTA (meat + pizza) is that it’s super flavorful and different than anything else out there. There’s come cauliflower hidden in the crust. The nutty, tangy sauce thickens to a creamy…

Chilled Avocado Crema with Bacon & Chives

It all started with some coffee. Really. My local coffee spot, ChadLou’s started carrying these beautiful hand made mugs. I’ve posted a few times on Instagram when I go to there, it’s such a cool little joint and the owner has impeccable taste. Like you could shoot a whole lifestyle thing there. Anyway….so through those posts their potter got wind of TCK. He messaged me and asked to meet for coffee, that he would love to give me some bowls/plates for my pictures. Heck yes! Mark of Kuhn’s Pottery is…

Sheet Pan Dinner: Hassleback Sausages, Bacon & Turmeric Brussel Sprouts

One Sheet Pan Dinners FTW! Sheet pan dinner are all the rage this year, and with good reason! They’re easy and delicious with virtually no clean up. Whoot Whoot! This recipe is one that I have made for my family a lot… it just took me a while to photograph it for you all. Mostly because the nights we go to sheet pan dinner, well, we’re really busy! What I LOVE about this recipe is that it tastes like comfort food while being super clean. I add some turmeric and…

Turmeric Parm Chicken, Kale & Zoodle Salad with Greek Vinaigrette

Inspiration SpoonForkBacon blog shared a roasted chickpea and kale salad with tahini dressing the other day, and piles of Parmesan on top… not going to lie… it got me jonesing for some cheese. I steer clear of lactose, but most aged or hard cheeses are lactose free… so technically I could eat cheese all the time. I don’t though, I don’t want to open the flood gates, lol… you know what I’m talking about it! So… I indulge every now and then. Lactose? I looked this up, lactose is the…

Warm Kale Bacon Salad with Apple Pecan Vinaigrette

I’ve been really thinking about fall salads lately. The kind of warm, delicious salad that would compliment a Thanksgiving spread. Growing up Cuban our Thanksgivings were far from traditional, usually boasting pork, rice and beans or sorts… along with a turkey! But now, my spread will be different in another way. Sure sweet potato mash will make a cameo, of course I’ll have a succulent bird, and my super healthy pumpkin pie… but paleo-fied recipes for stuffing, green bean casserole are so time consuming, and I know the rest of…

Smoked Parsley Meatballs (AIP!)

As you know, the Paleo AIP Instant Pot Cookbook came out this week. We’re all super stoked about it.                           Funny thing about me, actually, I think it’s a restaurant chef thing, we don’t cook from recipes often. Really, it’s a thing. While I should probably be cooking from this book all week to show off the awesome recipes… I’m more of an inspiration girl. Reading through this monster sized ebook my mind goes into overdrive with ideas….

Tuna Zoodle Casserole

My husband loves tuna noodle casserole. I have to admit, I didn’t even know what it was until I met him. It’s just one of those things, like many American comfort food staples, we didn’t have in my house. My parents are Cuban, they immigrated to this country in the eighties. While I don’t think my moms cooking was very representative of Cuban cooking, she had her own style, it definitely didn’t include casseroles. I like to think of my mother as my greatest teacher. I inherited her passion for…

Pesto-Churri Super Green Sauce

We often lump herbs and spices into a category of tasty things to make our food flavorful. These whole food seasonings are FOOD! Herbs pack lots of great nutrition. Did you know that Mint, Basil and Cilantro score the highest on the ANDI scale.¬†Ok, I had to google that, so an ANDI score is a number given to whole food ingredients to rate how many nutrients per calorie they have. These babies have the most! Talk about PACKED with goodness. So I love this sauce because it’s tangy like chimichurri…

Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner: Leftover Salad

I love being able to re-invent food, to take left overs and make it something completely different. For one thing it keeps thing interesting, and secondly it eliminates the gross factor. Anyone else get kinds grossed out by leftovers? Mostly fish and chicken give me the heeby geebies…. don’t know why. They just do. Chicken salad however… or anything coated in mayo is good to go. I love mayonnaise. True story. Back in my restaurant days I was the sauce queen, I would make aioli (fancy for mayo) of all…

AIP Breakfast Bowl

About a month ago I shared my breakfast on Instagram. Ok, most mornings I do. I guess it’s the meal I have the most time to prepare. Jack plays really well alone in the morning and we have our routine down. After he is fed, he’ll take over the living room with some elaborate pretend game. In this fleeting moment of independence I make my coffee, my breakfast and catch up with blog stuff a bit. It’s a ritual which won’t last forever, but for now we love it. Many…
