DIY: Making Your Own Herb-Infused Olive Oil

Happy December 1st! First of all, I can’t believe 2017 is almost over, and I have to say I’m kind of relieved.  Between the orange buffoon toying with the idea of nuclear war and Lyme disease, all I want to do is enjoy the holidays and ring in a (hopefully) pleasant 2018.  But before that […]

Cauliflower Shrimp & Olive Pizza

Happy almost Thanksgiving everyone! Madison and I will be heading to see our dad’s side of the family in Harrisburg, PA this Thursday and are mentally preparing for the feast ahead.  I realized I might have some difficult though, as I’m still not consuming much gluten, dairy, or sugar.  Lucky for me, a juicy piece […]

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

I’m learning to love my crock pot – which is both a blessing and a curse because I haven’t gotten to the part yet where I learn to make HEALTHY slow cooker meals – so please comment with any health crock pot recipes you recommend! For two Sundays in a row, I made this dangerously […]

Mint & Lime Avocado Toasts

Happy Thursday all! If you tuned in for last week’s post, you know that I’m currently on a pretty strict gluten-free, low sugar, low dairy diet as I work on healing my body from an illness.  As frustrating as it is, I’m learning so much about how certain foods affect my body and how to […]

Birthday Picnic Bites

Fancy Caprese Salad

The Caprese salad is an Italian classic, and one of my absolute favorites.  How could you go wrong with some tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil? Answer: you can’t.  I’ve had so many, and so many different varieties of the dish, that for once I decided to kick it up a notch and get fancy.  I deserve […]

Creamy Avocado Broccoli Slaw

Creamy avocado broccoli slaw: a Mexican-inspired twist on our Ramen Salad recipe. This came about as I was making cheesey enchiladas with green chilies and needed something green and crunchy to lighten up the meal. Added bonus: it turns out my NutriBullet is good for making more than just smoothies! Toss the ingredients for the […]

Grapefruit & Mint Gin Martini

Our first cocktail post! I’m surprised it took this long, since what’s a great dinner without a great alcoholic beverage to accompany it?! I normally stick to wine, but last Saturday I was feeling particularly creative and wanted to start using all the fresh ingredients I just bought.  I peeked into the fridge and saw […]
