The first meal of the day is always the most important. Start your day off right with a delicious recipe.

Cherry-Berry Chia Jam

Cherry-Berry Chia Jam

This has been a week of playing catch-up with our new website. There were a few links on the “Basics 101″ page that directed folks back to the old one that I corrected yesterday. So if anyone was searching through that, you should have no trouble pulling up the information that you need. I don’tContinue Reading

Quiche Me on the Lips

Quiche Me on the Lips

Dear Reader, I apologize in advance for the terribly corny word-play you are about to read in this post. What kind of puns am I talking about? I’m not the type to quiche and tell, so you will just have to figure it out on your own. I’m more than certain most of you haveContinue Reading

The Hubster’s Special Occasion Eggs Benedict

The Hubster’s Special Occasion Eggs Benedict

We changed up the hollandaise sauce and used melted coconut oil instead. HOLY SMOKES. Tastes just like non-paleo hollandaise sauce. Of course, you can still use olive oil if you prefer that flavor.   Share

When the Hubster and I were dating, around Saint Patrick’s day, we discovered that there was a genuine Irish pub in a town close by, run by immigrants from Ireland and their family. As somebody with Irish heritage, I was quite excited by this development! I would taste genuine Irish food (or as close toContinue Reading

Breakfast: Nopalitas and Huevos with Onion

Breakfast: Nopalitas and Huevos with Onion

Today, I am cooking with nopalitas! You read that right; the Dorky Missus has found herself a lovely source of nopales, and she’s fully intent on working them into some kind of recipe. For those who don’t know what the heck I’m talking about, nopales are also known as cactus paddles. They’re the flat, ovalContinue Reading

The Hubster’s Special Occasion Eggs Benedict

Before changing our eating habits and eliminating processed food, refined sugar, gluten, soy, dairy, and legumes, the Hubster and I had a breakfast that we consider our special occasion treat: Eggs benedict. Eggs over top of cooked Canadian bacon, over top of a hearty whole wheat English muffin, smothered in rich hollandaise sauce. Oh. My.Continue Reading

Change it up breakfast: Bun-less Eggs Benedict/Florentine!

Change it up breakfast: Bun-less Eggs Benedict/Florentine!

I would say about 99% of our diet is gluten-free since September. Every now and then, we’ll cheat and consume some, which reminds the Hubster and I of why we cut it out in the first place. In the last month, we have hardly cheated with gluten at all, except for imbibing at Thanksgiving andContinue Reading

Go Nuts Over Breakfast Bars

Go Nuts Over Breakfast Bars

While the Hubster was at work, stretching and massaging away his clients’ injuries, Wifey played with making some delicious breakfast bars. He didn’t know that I was planning¬† on creating something that he can grab and devour on his way out the door; something that is Hubby-centric and tailored to what I know he likes…Continue Reading

Decadent Cherry Cordial Pancakes

Decadent Cherry Cordial Pancakes

The other night, Hubster and I opened a bottle of wine from Adams County Winery that I saved for a rainy day. Unfortunately, it appeared that I saved it a bit too long, and it was tasting a bit too tart; probably because I didn’t store it correctly initially. So we left the cork off,Continue Reading
