I’ve been wanting to share the experience of creating a meat-less, paleo recipe for Thanksgiving. Life has been so busy that I haven’t gotten a moment to share createdContinue Reading

Tropical Plantain Paradise

You know what’s really annoying? Having a broken finger with torn tendons on your non-dominant hand. When the Hubster and I went on our vacation in October, I broke my finger playing football in the pool at the place where we were staying. I never realized just how much I use that hand, and howContinue Reading

Siracha-Cha-Cha Roasted Chicken Legs (Siracha, Garlic, Ginger, Honey)

Siracha-Cha-Cha Roasted Chicken Legs (Siracha, Garlic, Ginger, Honey)

The Hubster loves chicken legs. Loves them. If he was stuck on a deserted island, with only three choices for food, chicken legs would be one of them. When I cook chicken legs for him, the Hubster rips into them like I imagine a T-rex would. I don’t hear much out of him, except forContinue 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

Mint-Mustard “Butter”

Mint-Mustard “Butter”

This is the secret ingredient part deux of our three-piece dish that we’re releasing tomorrow! Mint-Mustard “Butter” – where the dairy is substituted with coconut oil. Surprisingly enough, coconut oil has a luxurious taste, much like butter does, and many may find it an acceptable replacement for butter. Since coconut oil is a palm oil,Continue Reading
