Jalapeño Avocado Crema

This is, by far, my absolute most favorite time of the year. Being lodged in the transition from summer to fall. The tourists in San Diego have made themselves scarce, there’s a chill in the air in the morning and evenings, grocery stores have a bounty of summer fruits mixed with autumn squashes. The air…

Bacon Ranch Chicken Salad

I have found that one of the best ways to stick to eating real, whole foods is a crazy delicious sauce. Some people use ketchup, others are impossibly addicted to hot sauce. Whatever your preference, if dousing your broccoli in butter is going make you more likely to eat your veggies, then I say go for…

Carrot, Apple, and Bacon Slaw

I feel like hot weather should warrant its own category of recipes. You know what I’m talking about. The kind of oppressive heat and humidity that makes oven or stove top cooking masochistic at best and completely impossible at worst. That was this week for me. I think I made salad for lunch and dinner multiple days…

Jalapeño Chimichurri Sauce

If you add one recipe to your culinary arsenal this summer, it should be this sauce. I’m not even kidding. The light and fresh herbs plus a mildly spicy jalapeño kick and a wallop of salty garlic… it’s literally the perfect companion for EVERYTHING! Fish. Yes. Shredded Pork. Yes. Grilled Steak. Yes. Eggs and Bacon. Yes….

Turkey Chorizo Meatloaf

  I want to share with you one of my favorite grocery store items. Chorizo! And not just any chorizo… This particular chorizo is FANTASTICALLY delicious while also maintaining a low fat content. While I have no qualms with high-fat animal products, I am notably impressed when a lean sausage makes my taste buds happy. Most sausages are great…

Salsa Verde Shrimp Tacos

These tortillas. I can’t stop. I’ve literally been putting all my foods in a tortilla. Kind of like that guy that indiscriminately puts ketchup on his food. Eggs, potatoes, steak, bagels… Ketchup 4 Life Guy. I’m that guy… just with paleo tortillas. One of their more shining qualities is durability which is hard to find in a…

Bacon and Jalapeño Omlette

Other names suggested were: 1. The Jalap-acon Omlette 2. The Jalap-acon-tro Omlette They seemed a little too gimmicky for me, so I stuck with the original food spellings (plus I like using the ñ in Jalapeño). Enjoy this as a fancier-than-normal beginning to your day, or cook up a bunch for your weekend brunch! It’s not…
