Vegetarian Tikka Masala Curry

Vegetarian Tikka Masala Curry

Wow! We’ve been missing in action for some time! New things have been made, but new things haven’t been posted, which makes me a sad panda. 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

Baba Ganouj Faux Mac and Cheese

Baba Ganouj Faux Mac and Cheese

I’m not an avid Pinterest pinner. I glance at it on occasion, and pin teaching ideas more than anything else. Every now and then, I’ll admit that an awesome food picture crosses the screen, and I find myself thinking, “Ooh. That sounds interesting.” That’s sort of the case here. Sort of. I use it quiteContinue Reading

Delicious Slow Cooker Paleo Gumbo with Okra as a Thickener

Delicious Slow Cooker Paleo Gumbo with Okra as a Thickener

I love Cajun cooking. Love it. I miss living along the Gulf coast of Mississippi simply for the fact that I pine for the food terribly. Gumbo. Jamabalaya. Po’ Boys. Boiled Mud Bugs. Red beans and rice. Dirty rice. Crawfish Étouffée. Cornmeal Crusted Chicken. Savory Cajun Shrimp and Grits. Yummy. (Am I making you hungry,Continue 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

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

Not too long ago, the Hubster and I had some friends over for a dinner that’s been a year in the making. Since this was such a special occasion, we decided to go all out! We made a delicious dinner with paleo-friendly drinks and a yummy dessert! My friend had requested that we make beefContinue Reading

Earthy Slow-Cooker Balsamic Chicken

Earthy Slow-Cooker Balsamic Chicken

I believe that I am on a bit of a chicken kick here lately. Don’t worry; I won’t be on it forever. I have a seafood and pork recipes just waiting for me to experiment with. Plus, I need to tackle desserts. Since, I’ve been wanting to try out the different balsamic tastes that canContinue 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

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
