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…

Slow Cooked Carob Pulled Pork

I love pulled pork. From the ultra simple flavors of Kalua pork, clean and smoky, to the saucy mess that is bbq pulled pork. These days the later is a little difficult to come by, seeing as I can not eat most, or any store bought bbq sauces. You know, the whole I can’t eat tomatoes or any kind of pepper thing (nightshades, no bueno). Yes, I do make my own. Some times though, especially when the slow cooker is involved, you just want to keep it simple. For me…

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…

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…

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…

Salmon & Sweet Potato Cakes

There’s something about fish being fishy that really puts me off. Yet, I consider my self a fish lover. I will often order it when we go out, I love ceviche & sushi- but at home I’m weird about it. So I don’t often make it. I scored some wild caught salmon at a good price… what to do with it? I hate making meals that leave me feeling meh… then inspiration hit! Salmon cakes over salad… sweet potato & salmon cakes… and I’ll make a chive aioli… with poppy…
