Rosemary and Sesame Paleo Crackers
I’m not normally one to get out of my way for crackers… I sort of see them as boring, dry, tasteless and overall uninteresting. Since making the switch to paleo, they were never really something that I truly missed. Except lately, after making this delicious Preserved Lemon and Olive Tapenade, a ...
Lemon and Almond Olive Tapenade
For as long as I can remember, olives have always throned really, really high on my list of bestest, most favoritest foods. When I was a kid (okay, who the heck am I trying to kid here? This should definitely read: to this day), whenever there’d be a family reunion, there’d invariably be olives on
Ginger and Scallion Pork Stir Fry
You know what? I’m starting to think that the keto diet isn’t so bad after all… now that I’ve finally adapted and that my body and mind are totally back to normal, I can probably say that I’m almost starting to enjoy it. Almost. (you can read more about my 12 week keto “experiment” here, here and
Avocado Pistachio & Matcha Ice Cream
First off, a warning: much like the other “treats” that I came up with while experimenting with keto, this Avocado Pistachio & Matcha Ice Cream contains no sugar whatsoever. Therefore, it’s not sweet, not in the least. Well, mind you, that’s not exactly true. To say that it wasn’t sweet “in the ...
Spinach and Salmon Baked Omelet Roll
Seriously you guys. Did you know that one could bake, stuff and roll an omelet, much like they would a cake? HOW FRIGGIN’ GENIUS IS THAT? Call me ignoramus, but until I stumbled upon Michelle’s Baked Omelet Roulade recipe, over at Peachy Palate, I had NO idea that this could even be attempted. ...
Quick and Easy Salmon Salad
Some of you have been asking about my keto experiment and how things had been going for me in the past few weeks. Well, I’m proud to report that I did not break up with the Ketogenic diet after all and decided that I would see it through the full 12 weeks that I’d initially decided on doing. HA! I
Homemade Head Cheese
Of all the recipes that I made until now, if there was one that I really wish my dad could’ve tasted, this would be the one. He was such a huge fan of head cheese! You should’ve seen the look on his face when my mom returned from the grocery store and he would retrieve a jar […] The post Homemade
Creamy Brussels Sprouts and Smokey Bacon Salad
I have to confess… I got the inspiration for this Creamy Brussels Sprouts and Smokey Bacon Salad while standing in line at the grocery store. You know how they always have stands with millions of magazines in them, some keeping you up to date on the latest star gossips and trendiest miracle diets,
Smoked Ham and Hard-Boiled Egg Salad
As I was making this salad, I got to thinking about how my whole life, I’ve heard, read or been told that when attempting to lose weight, one had better be extra careful when selecting salads as a meal option. Indeed, more often than not, these tend to be loaded with crazy amounts of dressings or
Almond Pistachio Fat Bombs
If I had to name one thing that I do like about the Keto diet, it would have to be coming up with fat bomb recipes such as this Almond Pistachio Fudge. I must admit that fat bombs are a fun and tasty way to boost one’s daily fat intake. Still, the principle doesn’t sit all that well with […] The ...
