Oven Roasted Butternut Squash
I recently came to realize [once again] that I don’t often enough share my super easy, every day life recipes, like this Oven Roasted Butternut Squash, which I pretty much eat on a weekly basis whenever squash is in season. I guess it’s because I find they are way too simple to deserve the ...
Whipped Sweet Potato Casserole with Candied Maple Pecans
Would you believe me if I told you that before I made this Whipped Sweet Potato Casserole, I had never before experienced the deliciousness that is this great classic. Boy had I ever been missing out! This stuff is out of this world deeeeee-lish! But I dunno, for some reason, the idea of pairing ...
Maple Walnut Crusted Salmon
A lot of people think that cooking salmon is an art, and a very complicated one at that. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, I think salmon is one of the easiest fish to cook, especially when it’s in fillets. Its flesh is so firm and holds its shape so very well, you can […] The post
Homemade Pumpkin Puree
I don’t know about your part of the world, but in my neck of the woods, it seems like pumpkin puree only comes in cans of the gigantic variety. As a result, I’m always fairly hesitant to use that deliciously sweet puree in recipes, because practically every time I do that, I end up throwing out […]
Polpette alla Fiorentina
I’m not typically a fan of meatballs… you probably know this by now. But these Polpette alla Fiorentina (which is basically a fancy way of saying meatballs with spinach) are different. These are the real deal, man. They’re like DUDE FOOD material. They’re big, they’re bold, they’re beefy and they
Oven Baked Fried Chicken
The other day, I rendered a fresh batch of lard and, by the same token, inherited a bunch of delicious crispy lardons. Since I was still doing keto at the time, it turned out to be a real blessing for me and I started sprinkling said lardons on basically everything I ate. Their flavor reminded me
Caramelized Onions and Roasted Bell Peppers Meatza
I can’t even count the number of times I have come across Meatza recipes since I took the paleo leap… I never really caught on to them, though. I dunno, something about the concept of replacing pizza crust with ground beef left me feeling sort of meh… I mean, ground beef and pizza crust probably ...
Layered Choconut Bars
First, take a good long look at the picture below. Then, scroll aaaaaaaaaall the way down and take a real good peek at that recipe… and then come back here. Now, before I even write another word, please allow me to say this: whatever you do, keep this lovely picture in mind and don’t let the ...
Ginger Sesame and Almond Broccoli
Well, I’ve officially started working out from home again. CrossFit is now a thing of the past for this foodie, at least for the time being. I’m not exactly sure how I feel about all this yet. I mean, unquestionably, I am EXTREMELY excited about building my very own gym. I’ve been having a blast ...
Keto Ground Beef and Spinach Skillet
Well, that’s it. I’ve decided that Keto and I are officially through. Well, at least for the time being. For a few days after my 3 month experiment was formally over, I considered stretching it by another month, but then I changed my mind. Not that I was feeling bad or anything. Only, I was fed up.
