Gourmet Cauliflower Pizza

Gourmet Cauliflower Pizza

So you’ve heard of this bizarre thing called cauliflower pizza. You most likely haven’t had the guts to make it. I don’t blame you one bit! I promise I have not lost my mind. In fact, I’m saving you from cheating with real pizza. It’s truly the best substitute. I was incredibly skeptical of cauliflower pizza. Anything goes with pizza, right? Anything but, STINKY cauliflower. Pizza is supposed to be the ultimate meal splurge. Why the heck would I ruin such a coveted food by adding cauliflower to it?

Butternut Squash Noodles with Chicken & Peanut Sauce

Butternut Squash Noodles with Chicken & Peanut Sauce

Lately, I’ve been madly obsessed with peanut butter. Any food that pairs well with peanut butter is all mine! My inspiration for this dish started with peanut butter and ended with my nifty spiralizer. I have to admit this is the first time using my Paderno Spiralizer and I’m impressed. If you don’t have a Paderno Tri-Blade Spiralizer by now, well my friend, I feel sorry for you. Sorry that you can’t make this recipe!  Read more
Skinny Cottage Pie

Skinny Cottage Pie

Top ‘O The Mornin’ to ya! In celebration to St. Patrick, I introduce to you to a skinny version of Irish Cottage Pie. What makes Irish Cottage Pie is the beef, the mixed vegetables, the light beef sauce, and the mashed potato. Not to be confused with Shepherds Pie, which has minced lamb in it. There are a lot of great cottage pie recipes floating all over the internet. My cottage pie recipe exceeds them all! A robust mixture of beef and vegetables blends superbly with the beef sauce. When you thought it couldn’t get any better, add the creamy mashed cauliflower over the beef mixture to complete your Skinny Irish Cottage Pie. A very practical and substantial meal.

Paleo Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

Let’s talk about how FREAKIN DELICIOUS my Paleo Spaghetti with Meat Sauce is. It’s so flavorful and filling; I cooked plenty to feed the entire neighborhood! I’m ecstatic to have leftovers for the next couple of days. If leftovers aren’t your thing, I suggest you freeze the meat sauce in freezer safe containers. I utilized the Organicville Pasta Sauce mason jars. A fabulous surprise in your freezer when you are frantically searching for a bite to eat.

Fish Tacos with White Cream Sauce

Fish Tacos with White Cream Sauce

Never in my life until recently have I eaten fish tacos. Before my new found love for fish tacos, I always thought of the strange combo as unappealing. I eat all fish; whitefish, caviar, shellfish, mussels, oysters, octopus, even squid. Heck, I lived in Japan and tasted the very best fish in the world. I was merely ignorant as to what types of toppings and fillings to pair with the fish and taco. I’m a very curious eater and thankful for it because I adore these scrumptious tacos de pescado!

Slow Cooker Top Sirloin

Slow Cooker Top Sirloin

Two things that stood out to me the most at this year’s Super Bowl 50: Lady Gaga’s bright red pantsuit and the Mountain Dew ‘Puppy Monkey Baby’ commercial. I still have goosebumps from Lady Gaga’s theatrical performance of the Star Spangled Banner. I’d say she is right up there with Whitney Houston’s 1991 performance of the national anthem. The half time show was ho-hum until Bruno Mars kicked it into gear. The game itself was a little dull being more defense dominated. Good for the Broncos, I’m happy with Peyton Manning’s win. I loved Manning’s response to his victory to-do list- kissing his wife and kids, celebrating with family and teammates, and that he’s “gonna drink a lot of beer tonight…Budweiser. Von Miller’s buying.” Manning claims Budweiser didn’t pay him to say that, but regardless it was unexpected and fun to hear him say that. Don’t you feel like downing a celebatory drink or two after a major accomplishment? I know I did after my marathon! What are your favorite Super Bowl 50 moments? Read more
