Have you ever tried plantains? Well I have a delicious recipe for tostones, guacamole, skirt steak and chimichuri sauce. Great idea for a Whole30 approved recipe. Make extra because they will go fast.
Need an easy lunch or dinner idea that is also healthy and Whole30 approved? Try my salmon, tomato skewers with chimichuri sauce.
If you’re looking for a striking side dish or appetizer that will impress your guests, try these mini hasselback potatoes with mustard sauce. The first time I made these a few weeks ago I was doing an Instagram Live video and accidentally called them Hasselhoffs and that caught on and now that’s what I call them, jokingly. These would be perfect for any summer party appetizer, lunch or dinner side.These are my new favorite to serve as a side dish with meat, fish or other veggies. I also think these make an excellent appetizer for a party, game day, or any other event. I made them for a birthday party we went to this afternoon and they were a hit. It was nice to have something different on the appetizer table for sure.
Memorial Day is around the corner and I spent the day grilling outside yesterday to create this delicious Grilled Asian Salmon on one sheet with mustard dressing. It’s super simple and not a lot of prep work. Turns out very flavorful and done in no time. Perfect easy recipe for a sunny weekend. (more…)
When it comes to baking, I like to keep things simple and use fresh and in season ingredients.

So I was excited to make something delicious for you guys. A perfect spring cake that is also gluten free. (more…)

I think when most of us, while sick, crave a good soup? Well, I don’t know about you, but when I am, I crave cozy, simple soups like this Celeriac, Fennel and Sweet Potato soup. Plus all of the cold and rainy days Portland this winter, it has not helped. It comes together so quickly, which in my mind is always a good thing. This soup combines a few of my favorite root veggies and an addition of milk makes this a velvety and smooth in texture. (more…)
I don’t know about you guys, but we do taco Tuesday’s at our house often, because we just love them. But, sometimes on a cold winter evening I change it up and make my super easy tortilla soup instead. Soup is one of my favorite winter meals. With this soup you get the same great Mexican flavors as if you would if having tacos, but in a soup form. It’s the perfect soup to warm up around the table with my family. It takes me about 30 minutes, if that to make this.
The season for pumpkin has officially arrived. The leaves are turning colors, the weather is cooling down. I walked into my local Fred Meyer store the other day and the all the fall colors were all over the front of the store.
