Orange Chicken Yum-yum

Orange Chicken Yum-yum

Mmm! Orange Chicken Yum-yum; let’s make some! The Hubster often works well into late evening, which means that I want something that is easy to prepare if I’m going to wait to eat dinner with him. Which is usually the case as neither one of us enjoys eating dinner alone. Both of us came fromContinue Reading

Allergy-friendly Seasame and Flax Seed “Pad Thai” Bars

Allergy-friendly Seasame and Flax Seed “Pad Thai” Bars

HOLY SIRACHA, BATMAN! Forget every other kind of snack bar. If you like spicy, you need these. NOW. These bars evolved from taking our savory toasted flax and sesame seed bars, spreading sunflower butter on them, and topping with a few dabs of siracha sauce. Rather than do that every time, I concluded that bakingContinue 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

“Oatmeal Raisin Cookie” Sesame, Flax, and Chia Seed Bars

“Oatmeal Raisin Cookie” Sesame, Flax, and Chia Seed Bars

Wow! After finally having some success in making a minimal ingredient, healthy snack bar that was allergy-friendly (to me), I was definitely inspired to continue this creative snack journey and bake up something to satisfy the paleo sweet tooth. Anyone who’s cut refined sugar out of their diet, or is in the process of doingContinue Reading

Savory Toasted Sesame-Flax Seed Snack Bars

I was issued a challenge by a friend of mine during the spring of this year. She wanted me to make healthy snack bars that could be made for much cheaper than the Sweet Seeds bars that she tasted in Canada. I accepted the challenge, though it would be a little while before I couldContinue Reading

Summer’s here! With the addition of dense, summer heat, meals change to outdoor grilling and side dishes that are light on the stomach. Weeks are filled with barbeques, salads, and slaws galore! Cook-outs abound everywhere! I don’t know about you, but when summer rolls around, I can’t get enough of out-door grilling. I like simple,Continue 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

Paleo-Conscious Lemon Honey Glazed Carrots

Paleo-Conscious Lemon Honey Glazed Carrots

I love carrots! Fresh organic carrots straight from the garden are my favorite. Baby carrots aren’t too bad, but honestly, I like the regular kind. One of the side dishes I remember my grandmother and my mother making was glazed carrots, so good, so sweet and full of processed sugar with butter as a componentContinue Reading

Hungarian Cabbage Rolls with Tomato-Cranberry Sauce

Hungarian Cabbage Rolls with Tomato-Cranberry Sauce

So I’m sick in bed with my first cold of the teaching season. Honestly, I’m a bit surprised that I haven’t had one by now. Everyone’s son or daughter is coming down with the cold. Schools just seem to be huge petri dishes at this time of the year. I wanted to make something differentContinue Reading

Nut-Free Nutella…What do I call this stuff? Tahsunella? Chocotasu? Who cares, it’s OMGGOOD.

Nut-Free Nutella…What do I call this stuff? Tahsunella? Chocotasu? Who cares, it’s OMGGOOD.

By now, all of the Black Friday shoppers have probably gone home to crash for the day. Or they’re recouping to head back out into the madness. If you’re one of the brave folks out there in that craziness, make sure that you’re drinking plenty of fluids and eating. The last thing anyone wants isContinue Reading
