Grilled Shrimp + Avocado Appetizer

About two months ago I got an email from the Editor of the Feed Feed. She wanted to know if I wanted to host a recuring cooking show of sorts on their Instagram stories. Their Instagram following exceeds over 1.2 million views. Ummmm heck yes! Not only because it’s a great way to reach a wider audience, but it’s an honor. The FeedFeed is a community of foodies, chefs and bloggers. The various editors who curate feeds on topics like chocolate, Hawaiian food, Whole30 recipes, pizza are more are among…

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…

Shrimp and Bacon Breakfast Wrap with Garlic Cilantro Sauce

Low Carbing If you’ve been reading my posts, you know that I’ve been low-carb paleo for a while now. Well, while I feel great! The scale hasn’t reflected the changes I had hoped for. After talking with some other paleo bloggers that I love and respect, the consensus was that I needed to shock my body. That I needed a carb load day! So yesterday I ate #allthecarbs and it was glorious. Jicama, butternut squash, banana… it was glorious. Today, back to low carb business per usual. We’ll see if…

Saucy Tamarind Shrimp

There’s this Cuban dish called “camarones enchilados” and it was one of my favorites. A saucy skillet of perfeclty browned onions and garlic swimming in rich tomato sauce with big juicy shrimp. Served over a bowl of white rice. That. Was. My. JAM! Keyword: WAS. Tomatoes are no long a part of my life. They were toxic and detrimental to my well being so I thought it best that we not see each other anymore. Sure it’s been difficult. Sometimes I really miss them, I have so many fond memories…

Sweet Potato Shrimp Cakes

It’s awesome what you come up with when you have limited resources… seriously… food cost in Hawaii is HIGH and although I love to play & experiment with food & recipes… some weeks we literally have to “stretch” our resources. This recipe was born of that need…. and umm… it’s AH-MAZING! I’ve had this skill since I was young, I could rummage a nearly empty pantry or fridge and create a feast. It was particularly useful during my college days. My friends and I would scrounge up whatever we could…
