Quick Olive Hummus
Believe it or not, I whipped up this batch of Quick Olive Hummus specifically for my baby grand-daughter. She was spending the weekend at my house and I was looking for something nutritious and filling that I could give her for her morning and afternoon snacks. I knew for a fact that she ...
Mexican Black Bean and Corn Salad
Sorry guys, I’m serving corn again! It looks like I’m having a truly insatiable hankering for the stuff this year. I think it had simply been too long since I’d really indulged in my ultimate favorite summer “technically-grain-but-considered-more-like-a-veggie-by-most” vegetable. After I made my ...
Cantaloupe Tomato Gazpacho
If you’re a fan of cold soup, then this Cantaloupe Tomato Gazpacho is bound to become a very good friend of yours. Personally, I don’t really care much for cold soup, as I find they tend to be rather boring, but I found myself falling head over heals for this one. Based on color alone, this soup ...
Zucchini Cake – Naturally Sweetened
Before I start entertaining you about this [crazy moist and delicious] Zucchini Cake, I’d like to ask your opinion on something, if I may. As some of you may have noticed, I just had this place completely redesigned. While everything is pretty much in place and fully functional now, there’s still
Citrus Avocado Salmon Ceviche
I know, I know, I’m not being all that original this week, serving salmon twice in a row… Not only that, but I’m also serving 2 fairly similar salmon dishes, too! How rude of me, right? Well, I’m real sorry about that, but to my defense, I’d purchased this whole huge fillet of salmon and well, ...
Chili Lime Corn Salad
It’s corn season once again! YES! God I love corn. It’s definitely one of the things I’ve missed the most during my strict paleo years. When I was a kid, corn was my mostest favoritest “vegetable” in the whole wide worlds and as such, corn season was, without the shadow of a doubt, the true ...
Have you ever had Salmon Confit? To be honest, this was my first time. In fact, I never even knew that such a thing as salmon confit even existed until very recently… I’d always associated the term “confit” with meat that was being cooked in a bath of warm fat for a very long period of time. […] ...
Coconut Cranberry Almond Butter
It had been a while since I’d last shared a new fancy homemade nut butter recipe. In fact, it had been a while since I’d last made one at all. Perhaps I’ve come up with so many different varieties by now that my inspiration has sort of started to wear out a little. But last week, I […] The post ...
Banana Blueberry Muffins
These Banana Blueberry Muffins were sort of created by accident… Well, they were and they weren’t. One thing’s for sure: I certainly didn’t mean for them to be fat free! Let me explain… My baby grand-daughter was coming to spend the weekend at home and I decided to create a muffin just for her, ...
Greek Style Tomato Cucumber Salad
I’ve totally lost count of how many times I’ve had this Greek Style Tomato Cucumber Salad since the beginning of the summer… I seem to automatically revert to it whenever I’m not feeling too inspired or too creative in the kitchen, or whenever I need to whip up dinner in a hurry. This salad, it ...
