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, […]

Homemade Whole30 Mayo

Russians consume more mayonnaise than any other population in the world, so I guess it’s not that much of a surprise that it is probably my favorite condiment of all time. Unfortunately, the store-bought mayonnaise options are pretty lacking in quality, taste, price or any combination of the three. You can go the super processed […]

The Perfect Steamed Egg

You guys know I love eggs. I mean, it’s literally in my name. I’ve got a lot of egg recipes here, but my Perfect Boiled Eggs are probably what I refer back to most – I use them in so many recipes (like my Top Secret Deviled Eggs)! I’m pleased to report, I now have […]

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 […]

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 […]

Carolina-Style Paleo BBQ Sauce

Happy National BBQ Day! If grilling, smoking, or BBQ anything is your jam, you probably already know that every region has their own style. I like most of them, but my favorite is definitely that yellow mustard vinegar BBQ sauce the Carolinas are known for. Even before food was really my “thing,” that was always […]

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.Β 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, […]

Paleo Chocolate Buttercups

If you’d told me a year ago that I’d be making paleo desserts some day, I’m not sure I would have believed you. I resisted the idea for so long, because it’s “not in the spirit of paleo,” but I think I was wrong. As I continue in my efforts to make paleo fooding a […]

Five Minute Friday: Sous-Vide Eggs

I realize the average person probably does not have an immersion circulator lying around at home, but in the last year or so it’s become a much more accessible purchase and I absolutely love our little Joule Sous-Vide. I have written about the Perfect Boiled Egg before, but since Nick bought this guy last year, […]
