Slow Carbbq Sauce

It has finally happened! A sugar-free, completely slow carb and paleo barbecue sauce! I’m sure anything remotely authentic will put it to shame, but hey, you can have this one any night of the week. This sauce is super quick to put together and goes great with any protein, but we’ve particularly enjoyed it with […]

WTF: The Easiest Stir-Fry Ever

Yea yea, I know, I haven’t posted a recipe since April. I don’t really have an excuse – I just haven’t been writing much, though cooking plenty. So let’s just skip all the apologies and whatnot and get down to business. If you saw my post on the SlowCarbSnacktime Facebook the other day, I mentioned […]

Spring Fling: Short Rib Chili

Spring is here, spring is here! Well… sort of. In between glorious bits of sunshine, it’s still a little chilly which makes chili the perfect choice for dinner! We picked up some beautiful boneless short ribs the other day, but I’m mixing it 50/50 with beef stew meat for a slightly more budget-friendly meal.Β This spicy […]

Two Years: My Top 20 Recipes!

Southwestern Turkey Bowl

Between grad school, daily life, makeup nerdery, preparing for another trip back east, and a recent trip to Israel (followed by a vicious cold), I’ll be honest – I haven’t felt much like writing recipes lately. Last week I had a bit of an eye-opening encounter with an old friend who reminded me that I’m […]

Sweet Hundos: Oven-Roasted Cherry Tomato Sauce

Courtesy of our lovely next-door neighbors, late last week I found myselfΒ with close to four pounds of cherry tomatoes in the kitchen, mostly of the irresistibly orange Sweet 100 variety. We couldn’t possibly eat them all, and soup was out of the question – have you ever peeled that many tiny tomatoes? I certainly wasn’t […]

Hold the Sizzle: Fiery Chicken Fajitas

If you’re anything like me, you really love fajitas. You love fajitas almost as much as you hate burning your fingers on the damn cast iron skillet that restaurants insist on serving your food on. Every time, they tell me, “don’t touch the plate, it’s hot” and every time, I burn myself one way or […]

Cheatin’ on Chipotle: Beef Barbacoa

The barbacoa at Chipotle is a thing of beauty. Other than the new Bonfire Bowls at Baja Fresh, Chipotle’s barbacoa is by far my most frequent craving for a slow carb meal when we’re out and about. Now, The Boyfriend and I fully appreciate Chipotle’s more natural approach to feeding the masses, but sometimes we […]

Whatsername Fish Tacos

Note: The story behind the name of this recipe is quite filthy and decidedly NOTΒ kid-friendlyΒ so if you don’t like dirty jokes, please skip the following paragraph. A few years ago, I was at home with my younger sister watching the Food Network (as per usual). We were watching an episode of “Best Thing I Ever […]

Red Lentils are Dal-icious!

Dal. Daal? Dahl? However you spell it, the stuff is awesome. My first attempt was stove top with yellow split peas, and while it too was delicious, I’ve moved to a way easier and less-involved process: this time, I’m whipping out the crock pot! Packed with protein and a pretty hue, I went with red […]

Saturday Morning Shakshuka

Shakshuka is such a popular North African/Israeli dish, but I had never made it myself before. An errand-less Saturday morning is just what I needed! Packed with some serious flavor and topped with a half-dozen farm fresh eggs, it’s the perfect dish for breakfast in the living room, brunch with the folks, or dinner for […]

Chicken Satay-Kebabs & Peanut Sauce

Inspired by a craving for peanut sauce and beloved ingredients in my pantry, I had a ton of fun experimenting with the marinade for this satay/kebab mashup today. If you are using wooden skewers, you should soak them in water for about 30 minutes before cooking to prevent the meat from sticking. Unfortunately I was […]
