Pumpkin Curry Soup (Whole30)

Oooh it feels so good to be writing again! Especially about food, and makeup! I know I sort of disappeared without a trace after posting very regularly for half the year, but now I’m back. Long story short: I unexpectedly got a job offer and have been working full time since the end of June! […]

Healthy Homemade Popcorn

Let’s clear the air real quick: corn is a grain, not a vegetable, which means it’s not paleo. I am aware of this, but with so many food restrictions for health reasons, I’m gonna take what I can get. Corn does not seem to have any negative impact on me so, when not on Whole30, […]

Heritage: Salted Caramel Halva Bites (Paleo)

I didn’t get too much of a reaction from my dad when I first told him about my Heritage: Upgraded series that I was going to start writing. My parents mean well, but I talk about food basically non-stop and I think sometimes they just smile and nod so I shut up. Turns out, dad […]

No-Grill Roasted Peppers

I love roasted peppers. I particularly love spicy roasted peppers like Anaheim or jalapeño and when it gets warm, I want them on everything. A great quickie accompaniment to just about any meal, these no-grill no-gas oven-roasted peppers are so easy and you can make them no matter what your grilling setup or pepper preference may be!

Master Class: Whole30 Pickled Onions

I recently decided it was time to add some more tricks to my kitchen tool belt. I am always researching, reading, and learning something new, but I wanted to share some of that with you guys as I go “back to basics” and learn how to do a few things I’ve never done before. Starting […]

Five Minute Friday: Classic Baked Garlic

I tend to make baked garlic a lot more often in the colder months, but I’ve been craving it lately and thought it would make a perfect little Five Minute Friday since that is quite literally all you need to make it happen. Admittedly, the garlic does cook for a while, but the prep is […]

2Towns Cider: Ginja’d Onion Jam

I recently had the pleasure of taking a very long drive down to Corvallis to meet some of the lineup at 2 Towns Cider. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you may already know it is pretty much my favorite cidery around. I genuinely enjoy their product, and the love grew even more when I […]

Meal Prep: Big Batch Veggies

This is quite a simple and straightforward recipe, if you can even call it that, but it’s a weekly meal prep essential for me! I wanted to get this one up, but moving forward, all of my meal prep recipes will go up on Mondays. I like to use frozen vegetables for most of this, […]

Five Minute Friday: Weekday Cocktails

I recently took a poll on Instagram and Facebook about what you guys miss most when eating Whole30/Paleo and you overwhelmingly responded with alcohol and dessert! There’s no chocolate here today, but hopefully this one’ll satisfy the boozehounds. I do occasionally indulge in some wine or cider, but for the other 90%, here are some […]

Perfect Pecan Butter

A little while ago, I ordered some creamy pecan butter from a Whole30 Approved brand and practically inhaled the jar in the span of a week. I don’t eat peanuts anymore (because they make me feel icky) and almond butter just does not do it for me, but this… this was practically witchcraft. Unfortunately, the […]

Spicy Tomato Magic

I first tasted this perfection when my friend Dave brought some over for a game night a while back. It was an original creation of his and I could not get enough. Unfortunately, when I asked for the recipe, there was added sweetener. So naturally I stole the idea and made my own, Whole30 compliant […]

CSA: Golden Winter Soup

If you’re not familiar with the concept of a CSA, it stands for Community Shared (or Supported) Agriculture and works in a similar vein to a cow- or pig-share in which a group of people (they can know each other or not) commit to sharing part of the harvest from a local farm. These have […]
