Savory Superfood Waffles

Why Savory? As most of you know I have been venturing in the very low carb ranks of paleo for quite some time. I’m starting to see results. I feel great. I avoid starchy vegetables and fruits. I steer clear of dairy, grains and gluten. I’ve even kicked the nuts out for a while… but I’ve kept some seeds. I don’t obesses about food all day. I enjoy fasting with my butter coffee until lunch. I have energy and I’m focused. For now, this is going well. I don’t think…

Sweet Potato Merengues (Valentine’s Day Dinner)

I Was Not Prepared! Hiya folks! So I feel like Valentine’s day came out of nowhere this year. Not that the hubs and I celebrate it in any special way, more than a yummy dinner at home. With the January Whole30, and it felt like Super Bowl stuff came right after… poor little V-day just got forgotten. Maybe it’s also because it’s on a weekday this year. Anyway, I have a little romantic dinner spread shoot I have to do today. Really, filet mignon with a chocolate port wine sauce….

Vampire Slayer Sweet Potato Mash

Ok, full disclosure, I need to photograph this recipe again. Alas, by the time I looked up from my cooking frenzy it was 6:30 PM and the sun was gone. So the one decent picture I got of this dish doesn’t even do it justice. UPDATE! I was able to take more photographs! Now that that’s out of the way… this mash is bombdotcom. I’ll be posting all sorts of Thanksgiving/Holiday type recipes for the next week or so. I want you to be able to create a killer spread…

Sweet Potato White Turkey Chili

Soup Weather, Smoop Weather The weather seems to be cooling down in most parts of the world. Not here, but somewhere I’m told. All the soups, fall leaves, scarves and pumpkin- apple everything fill my social media feed. It’s quite lovely. So I’m just  going to pretend that we have seasons here too. Even though eating a bowl of soup for lunch will probably give me the sweats, a girl can dream. This soup it totally worth the heat though. Luckily it makes a big batch because we had it…

Jack Pie

Now that the summer months are almost a memory, as the weather begins to cool down it’s time for those hearty, oven recipes! This Jack Pie, lovingly named so after my son is delicious! I shared this recipe when I hosted the Whole30 Instagram forever ago and it’s been a hit. I thought I’d give it it’s proper home on the blog. Why Jack? Well, it’s a Shepherd’s pie type dish with Cuban flavors… So half Irish, half Cuban,  like my son. Bonus this version is a one skillet wonder….

Sweet Vegetable Pie

This beautiful pie is the food baby of my vegetable tarte tatin & my paleo apple pie…. and my love for caramelized root vegetables. A little on the time consuming side, but hey! All good things take time. This pie is perfect for holiday parties & brunch spreads. Super allergen friendly too! Can’t do cashews.. you can try making it with cauliflower cream. It’s also open to interpretation! This recipe will work with an array of flavor combinations. Meyer lemon, jicama & chili… carrots, ginger & whiskey… possibilities are endless….

Curried Turkey & Bacon Cupcakes

I made this today, and I was so pleased with how they turned out. I saw a beef & garnet potato cupcake on the Whole30 feed a month ago & I’ve been wanting to make something of the sort since. Today was as good a day as any, especially since I’m hosting the Autoimmune Paleo Instagram page. What a fun AIP meal! It’s not as time consuming as it looks & it’s enticing for the whole family, especially the little ones. I know my three year old was so excited…

Bacon, Kale & Sweet Potato Paleo Quiche!

When I first got it in my head that I wanted to make a paleo quiche, I was thinking of using a flaky almond meal pizza crust recipe I recently made as the crust for the quiche… but then I thought why go make it all SWYPO when it could be just a delicious & decadent & filling while staying Whole 30 compliant. Mission accomplished. This beauty is absolutely delicious & satisfying. I made ahead, divided it in to 8 slices & arranged those in tupper ware for a week…

Bacon Apple Stuffed Meatball over Sweet Potato Strings with Dill Mayo Cabbage Slaw

Seriously, is that even a title? I have nothing in the way of witty names for this dish… it’s just delicious, healthy & satisfying. Sometimes weekdays can get away from me. Too busy, too tired, too stressed… and then nada… no amazing meals happen. This blog really is what we eat at home. I don’t get paid for this, there is no extra food budget to play with. That said, I truly try to make every meal an occasion, every meal blog worthy… it’s just much more fun! This meal…
