Strawberry Oregano 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.

Roasted Strawberry-Rhubarb Salsa Chicken (Whole30, Keto, Paleo)

Rhubarb Season  Every year when rhubarb season rolls around my Instagram feed fills will all sorts of red confections. I must admit, I don’t get why it’s so popular to bake with. I mean, most recipes contain a few buckets of sugar to compensate for the naturally tart flavor of the rhubarb. Granted I also lack the cultural connection to baking with rhubarb, growing up first generation american in a city submerged in Latin culture… I never even heard of rhubarb until I moved to the west coast. I recall…

Arroz Con Pollo (AIP, Whole30, Paleo, Keto)

Fiesta! Growing up our house was always the family hub. Maybe because my mom of her other sister’s was the only one who had more than one kid, and therefore an already bustling household… or because of her love of hosting, cooking and entertaining. Whatever the reason, our house was the spot. All holiday and major events like baptism’s, graduations and birthdays were celebrated in our home. While all my aunts are talented cooks, each with their own signature dishes and areas of expertise, my mom always had her own…

Naked Crispy Chicken Taco (Whole30, Low Carb/Keto, Paleo)

Cinco De Mayo I used to be huge on 5 de Mayo…maybe because it involved a lot of tequila and dancing. What can I say? There was a Senor Frogs in the neighborhood. But really, I spent a lot of time in Mexico as a kid, my grandmother’s best friends from Cuba married a Mexican man and they lived in Guadalajara. We spend several summers visiting them. So I’m quire aware of the fact that 5 de Mayo is  bigger deal in the US. Which is cool. I mean, we…

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…

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…

Lemon Dill Spatchcock Chicken Roast (Whole30, Paleo)

I love a good simple roast. Whole chickens are among my favorite things to roast too. Mostly because I love the crispy skin, but also because I use the bones to make broth. When you buy the whole bird you get more bang for your buck too! A 5lb chicken can feed a family of 3 or 5 with some leftovers too… and then you can use the bones… I mean, I just love the lack of food waste that goes on with using the whole animal. I even feed…

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…

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…

Probiotic Cashew Yogurt (Greek Style Paleo Yogurt)

Oh dairy free yogurt how I have searched for thee. Real talk there are NO suitable store bought yogurt alternatives. ALL of the brands I have come across contain a bunch of weird ingredients that have no place in yogurt. It’s one of those things that once you add tapioca starch and xantham gum, locust gum, gella gum… blah blah blah… to my yogurt… I’m just like.. nah, I’ll pass. Coconut milk yogurt is decent. I make it in the SAME EXACT WAY. But I never found it SHAREWORTHY. I…
