White Chicken Chili

If you missed my Instagram post this week I shared that I’m taking on a new adventure and teaching dance for the kids in our homeschool co-op.  While I’m a little scared at all of the details required for teaching dance, my heart sings to be able to step back out on the floor of the…

Tandoori-Spiced Chicken

I first discovered my addiction to spices as I was packing up my kitchen for our move a few years ago.  Naively grabbing a small box, I set off to attempt to pack up my spice cabinet as quickly as I could and move on to larger, more substantial pieces that needed to be packed….

Pork Tenderloin with Peach Mint Sauce

Life lately has been full of ups and downs, filled calendars and big adjustments.  The biggest source of stress has been my health, so I decided to make an appointment with a naturopath to give me a black and white answer on what’s exactly wrong with me and why I was still having multiple health…

6 Tips To Ease Stomach Issues

Unfortunately, stomach issues are becoming more and more common and many are suffering due to stress, an unbalanced diet or food intolerances.  Personally, I’ve experienced digestion problems, such as gas, bloating, and other uncomfortable moments since I was only 16, and they still continue today.  While I have found relief by using the Paleo way of…

Sweet Chili Shrimp Noodle Bowl

  After forcefully kicking winter out of our home, we have openly welcomed these cool spring evenings.  Every chance we get we’re toting our kitchen out to the patio to enjoy dinner with friends, neighbors and wildlife.  I’m wondering, is it possible to spend more time on the patio than inside the house?  If so,…

Hazelnut Nutella Sandwich Cookies

These past few weeks have left me re-examining my life in terms of my attitudes, desires and intentions. I’ve come to realize that in some aspects I’m right on track but in others, oy vey, I’m lost in a sea of tracks without a map. And it’s so easy to get derailed when you think…

Eggplant Tapenade

The past few weeks I’ve been attempting my first Whole30 program with my sister without totally losing my mind.  First of all, I should’ve just bought a pet chicken ’cause the amount of eggs I’ve eaten could feed a small village for a month.  All I can say is thank God for Costco. The Whole30…

Digestive Detox Smoothie

You know what I love most about spring?  The days when the temperature rises above 80 degrees.  I get a chance to break out the shorts and be horrified at how pale my legs look and daydream about summer. You know what I hate about spring?  How horrible I feel after recovering from the holidays.  And…

Jamaican Jerk Turkey Kabobs

What makes a grilled kabobs recipe good?  The meat.  Do you see the succulent meat in that picture?  That mouth-watering, juice-covered, bacon-infused turkey?  My husband brought it home for us from his hunting trip last weekend, and I couldn’t be more proud!  He traveled down South to help my brother-in-law with some business for his…

Tomato Basil and Goat Cheese Breakfast Muffins

Growing up I wasn’t a big fan of tomatoes.  I grumbled when my mom would make a casserole with those tiny red bits playing hide and seek.  I would pick them out carefully and set them off to the side, far enough away where they wouldn’t touch what was left of the dinner on my…

Paleo Pasty

As I was droning on about last week, I’m all about tradition, so this week I thought I would follow my heart again to create a recipe that’s been passed down from one generation to the next in my family.  Have you ever heard of a pasty?  Born in the area around Cornwall, England, a pasty is like…

Easy Meaty Spaghetti Sauce

Let’s go back in time a little, say thirty years.  Back to a time when life was easier, not so complicated, less fearful.  Back when I left to play with my friends in the morning and came home only when the streetlights came on.  A time when kids were kids, we got into trouble and…
