Sweet and Fudgy Coconut Spread

Shortly before I started my recent double round of Whole30, I created something a little bit similar to this by combining a few near empty jars of existing nut butters that were sitting in my pantry… Seeing as how I had elected to void nuts from my diet for 60 entire days, I wanted to rid my kitchen of any and all […]

Shepherd’s Pie with an Indian Twist

This is not your typical Shepherd’s Pie, people… This, I think, is candy pretending to be Shepherd’s Pie. It’s sweet, it’s warm and buttery and it’s oh so comforting. We’re talking creamy ground beef and pan-fried tidbits of ripe plantain, brought together by a velvety smooth layer of spiced sweet potato and butternut squash puree. Oh yeah! It tastes just like paradise, I tell you! […]

Shepherd’s Pie – Italian Style

I got the inspiration for this Italian Style Shepherd’s Pie out of the same magazine that inspired this Rustic Coconut Rutabaga Mash. Again, it was a strange flavor combination that totally piqued my curiosity. This time, the bizarre union brought forth was that of orange, tomato and star anise. Such an unheard of combination for this foodie; I just HAD to […]

Smoked Bacon Cauliflower Röstis

So I was in the mood for something I hadn’t had in a loooong time: Smoked Bacon Röstis! Perhaps the Internet was to blame, I don’t know… I think I may have seen a picture somewhere or something. Oh, yes, right! I remember now! One of my favorite fellow bloggers, Mellissa of I Breathe I’m Hungry, recently posted […]
