Maple Rosemary Roasted Chicken and Veggies (Paleo/Primal/Gluten-Free)

Happy March! I suppose it’s halfway through March, but doesn’t it feel like it just started? So the Crockpot Challenge was a success! We got a little sick of the “crockpot texture” – where everything is a little mushy, not like baby food mushy, just you know…crockpot-y. But it sure was nice being able to come…

Asian Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

So I’ve just moved to the most beautiful little town. Hood River, Oregon is just 45 minutes East of Portland nestled right along the Columbia River. I can see Washington from my front porch! I also have a lovely view of Mt. Adams (Washington) and if I run just down the street a bit I…

Sun-dried Tomato and Spinach Quiche (Nut-Free Option)

Don’t forget that you can win raw honey for one more week!    I’m a huge fan of make-ahead breakfast. Preferably something a little fancy, and full of flavor, protein and healthy fats. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day…so even if its on the go, I want it to be good. I often make…

No-Bake Dark Chocolate Coconut Macaroons and Free Raw Honey (Paleo/Vegan)

So let’s celebrate with some macaroons, why don’t we? These would be great for your Easter brunch, lunch or dinner tomorrow! They feature Tropical Traditions…

Easy Homemade Almond Milk

When I first cut Coffee Mate out of my life, I used full fat coconut milk or the occasional half and half in my coffee. It’s pretty good…but the minute I realized how easy homemade almond milk is to make (and then tried it), I can’t go back. I’ll splurge on half and half when…

What I’m Loving Now (January)

I may not be loving writing comprehensive exams, but I’m loving being in my last semester of grad school and I’m loving these things… RxBars I talked a little about these on my Facebook page. I’m in love with these. They are a less sweet, more substantial (higher protein) version of the Larabar — with whole ingredients,…

A Different Kind of Fish and Chips and a Giveaway

This post also could have been titled: Double-dipped Coconut Fish Nuggets and Eggplant Fries I know, fish nuggets and eggplant fries don’t sound like the most delectable dinner you’ve ever had, but I promise this twist on traditional fish and chips is delicious! The best part? You can win the coconut I used as the coating for…

Flourless Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

I just love Fall. Don’t you just want to be in this photo? Credit goes to Christine, my best friend of (almost) 27 years! There have been jokes that it’s a ploy to convince me to move to Colorado Springs. Well, if so, it’s working! A year from now I might really be getting to…
