Sweet and Savory Teriyaki Nut Squares {Paleo}

So, here’s how this oddball recipe came to be…

I was recently thinking about my Stovetop Maple Nut Brittle when the idea for a savory version came to mind. That spun off into a savory granola idea, then a savory granola bar, and then nut bars.

Teriyaki nut bars, to be exact, because Mike and I had just come home from lunch at our favorite Japanese restaurant and I had Japanese food on the brain.

Welcome to the inner workings of the mind of a food blogger, lol.

Coconut-Sesame Rice

Would you believe I absolutely hated rice as a kid? I attribute this to the fact that my mom served what she called “Mushroom and Wine Rice” to my sister and I the first time we remember ever having rice. Although I think it sounds delicious now, this is not something your average five-year-old will generally devour; needless to say, I grew up thinking I hated rice....

Pina Colada Smoothie {Frozen Treat Week}

Pina Colada Smoothie1

The final treat I’m sharing in honor of Frozen Treat Week is a real doozy. In keeping with the other two healthy treats I’ve shared for this event (3-Minute Easy Cherry-Chocolate Sorbet and Almost-Instant Healthy Mint Chocolate Chip Soft Serve), today’s treat is equally healthy. And every bit as delicious. I’m not even kidding when I say that last summer I don’t think I touched a carton of ice cream once because of this smoothie. And that’s not to say that I didn’t crave ice cream....

So, who in the food world (home cooks included) doesn’t miss Gourmet, right? Luckily we still have their old magazines and books to thumb through to reminisce and find inspiration. This recipe hails all the way from 1998 and is a real winner in a timeless way. If you like Indian food and/or curry, this dish is sure to be a hit. And I was happy that unlike many curries, this one doesn’t use curry powder at all – just a lovely combination of ingredients providing sweet, heat, and spice for a perfect balance. Head over to my guest post on Culinary Covers for the […]...

Dark Chocolate Coconut Pudding {Paleo; Vegan}

Today marks mine and Mike’s 8th wedding anniversary, which seems completely crazy to me. (Crazy that eight years have passed, not that we’ve stuck together that long. Although, maybe it is a little crazy since we were so young when we got married…who says kids can’t make good choices? Lol.) Anyway, people have been congratulating us all over the place for passing the “seven year itch”, so I’ll take our 8th anniversary as a really good omen. I don’t like PDAs (which includes PDAs on the blog!) so not to worry, I won’t get all mushy here. But I will tell you a little something […]...
