Paleo Crock-roasted summer vegetables

I’ve had this lofty idea in my head for the past few weeks. That taking this new job and working from home would allow me the opportunity to return to regular, or at least somewhat more frequent food blogging. Things were so jam-packed at my last job that I barely had time to think or […]



Spicy Sweet Potato Hummus

While I sift through the several hundred photos and drawings I made over the weekend to document our home projects (!!), I thought I’d divert to a fun recipe you absolutely must try. Definitely not Paleo, but nonetheless a super easy dip to pull together when you’re aiming to snack or entertain a bit healthier. […]



Paleo Cinnamon “Oatmeal” Raisin Cookies

Cookies! If you hadn’t noticed, we’ve been in a bit of a baking drought since going Paleo. Initially it was because we chose to abstain from treats to better acclimate to being newly grain free. I also quickly found that Paleo baking had a learning curve that I didn’t have time for while finishing grad school. […]



Quinoa and Root Veggie Hash

File this under “what we should have made for Valentine’s Day.” Look at that color, but be careful, the intensity of my ugly blue counters against an almost magenta dinner might cause a seizure. Despite following the recipe in Whole Living almost exactly in respect to the beets, our dish ended up totally beet-ified. Ours […]



Baked Corn Fritters

I know things have been pretty quiet around here, and I’m so sorry. We’ve been in a rush and working double time to be able to take off tomorrow morning for Minnesota. We’re making a short trip for a relatively brief period of time to visit family and do a few things like oh I […]



White Bean and Garlic Dip and the Yucky Side of Moving…

Clive looks as if he’s pleading for you to take him away from us. I can’t say that I blame him. The boxes have completely taken over the house and it’s stressing poor Clive out. The cats on the other hand love it, and every box has dents in the middle where the cats have […]



Meatless Monday: Curry Ginger Banana Stir Fry

You read right, banana stir fry. We were skeptical, but we’re convinced, and we think you’ll love it. Neil has been asking for stir fry for a few weeks and on Saturday, on a whim, pulled out the stir fry noodles and assessed what we had around. Coming up with very little and not wanting […]



Eating Fast but not Fast Food

We’ve been insanely busy the past two weeks so we’ve been eating a lot of quick dinners. Morningstar “Chik” Patties and homemade baked spicy fries are a go-to staple for us. I like my fries super skinny and “McDonald’s-style,” how about you? Picked up this awesome new bowl on Amazon. We’d been using an ancient […]



Baked Falafel and Mujadarra

Oh the dilemma of a fixed lens. Just not enough focus area to show you all of this amazing plate at once. In retrospect I should have switched lenses, but I was just so excited to eat that I decided to limit myself to a few shots and then call it good. Little did I […]



Spicy Vegetarian Stout Chili

I am convinced spring has abandoned us. Seriously, where did it go?! This was not my idea of spring break. This lingering wet and cold weather blegh is seriously zapping all of my energy and optimism. All this week I’ve continually found myself exhausted before I even leave work and ready for bed before 10. […]
