Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies and Flowers. Is there any greater combination in this world? No. There isn’t. Another great combination is walnuts and chocolate, just ask a brownie. There are a ton of nut butter cookie recipes out there and to my dismay, there weren’t any using walnut butter. So I decided to try one out myself. These are…

Parmesan Sweet Potato Stacks

Quick one for y’all today! It’s a super easy and super yummy side dish that will pair wonderfully with any main entrée.

The Weight Series – The Struggle

In my first post, I wanted to shed light on the unfortunate mindset that plagues so many of us, especially around the new year. The idea that we should be different. That who we are right now is not good enough, pretty enough, successful enough, or thin enough. The last conversation was centered around weight…

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…

Peach and Prosciutto Frittata

Frittatas are seriously easy to make and they look so beautiful! Consider a frittata for your next gathering… it doesn’t need to be breakfast! People love eggs any ol’ time. Peach and…

Bacon Broccoli Caesar Salad

  You know, I haven’t seen too many paleo peeps attempting to recreate a caesar salad. I think caesar salads are probably one of the most “menu-ed” items out in restaurant land. I feel like everyone loves them and a lot of people order them on a regular basis. Heck, I remember in high school,…
