Slow Cooker Poached Pears with Mead

It’s almost the end of the school year, and for some people, they’re about ready to tear out tuffs of hair while they count down the days. Hahaha, seriously, don’t do that. Instead, moderate the amount of alcohol you consume and take a moment to stop and savor the sweetness of life. These slow-cooker pearsContinue Reading

Death Defying Diet’s Aioli

Death Defying Diet’s Aioli

Aioli is a delicious, light sauce that many people use as a substitution for mayonnaise that is a smooth mixture of water and oil compounds. In this recipe, we combine coconut oil and olive oil with egg yolk as the base, adding Dijon mustard and onion powder for taste. This makes a delightful topping forContinue Reading

Chicken Zucchini Noodle Pasta aka Mediterranean Christmas Tree

Chicken Zucchini Noodle Pasta aka Mediterranean Christmas Tree

The weather was absolutely phenomenal the day that I put together this dish. There’s something about warm, humid weather that makes me want to chow down on a dish that settles lightly in the stomach, but is filling at the same time. In commemoration of this beautiful day, I decided that I wanted to eatContinue Reading

Spanish Split Pea Soup

Spanish Split Pea Soup

Fair warning: If you’re strict about following a Paleolithic Diet, this recipe is probably not for you! As I’ve stated before many a times, we follow a paleo-conscious lifestyle, teetering between paleo and whole-foods approaches. This path is achieved by cutting a large portion of the paleo no-no’s from our daily food intake. Carbs, grains/gluten,Continue Reading

Paleo Tzatziki Sauce

Paleo Tzatziki Sauce

This Friday, I’m releasing a recipe that calls for Paleo Tzatziki sauce. Traditionally, tzatziki sauce is made with Greek yogurt, cucumber, and dill. If you read our recipe for Allergy Friendly Chicken Tikka Masala, better yet, even tried it, you probably noticed that we omitted yogurt (dairy) from that with delicious results. That means thatContinue Reading

Soy-free Chicken Teriyaki Stir-Fry

The Hubster said something to me the other night that was so ridiculously cute and cheesy that I have to share it. Out of the blue, he comments, “You know, honey, if you were a dinosaur, you would be a dorkasaurus.” I love dinosaurs, especially T-rex with his tiny arms. I love my husband. WhenContinue Reading

Gluten-free and Soy-free Garam Masala

Gluten-free and Soy-free Garam Masala

Not everyone has the option of choosing a garam masala mix without gluten (or cardamom) in it. To get gluten-free spices, go for the individual spices rather than a blend. McCormick’s individual spices are gluten-free for those of you who are having trouble searching. Here’s my recipe for this aromatic, Indian spice blend. Try itContinue Reading

Allergy Friendly Chicken Tikka Masala

Allergy Friendly Chicken Tikka Masala

I love Indian food. Love it. I can’t get enough of it, but I’ve had enough of it. Almost every Indian dish out there contains traces of pistachios (cashews or almonds), cardamom, and dairy. Escaping these ingredients is impossible, along with an allergic reaction. Therefore, when it comes to date nights, if we’re craving IndianContinue Reading
