Paleo Pumpkin Spice Waffles

This morning I woke up to no alarm – it was amazing. My big fluffy blankets were so comfortable especially now that it’s cold out. I had nothing I had to wake up early for which is rare so I decided to soak it all in and make the most of this beautiful day! What better way to love the morning even more than making paleo pumpkin spice waffles! I just got a new waffle maker I was dying to break in....more

Cock-a-leekie Soup: A Serious Soup with a Non-Serious Name

‘Tis the season. No, not that season. I mean flu season. Cold season. Winter season.

Oeuf en Cocotte

I was shopping the other day, mind you for nothing having to do with food, and as soon as we walked in to the store I was immediately drawn to the kitchen section, as usual. I can’t help it.

Philly Cheesesteak Quesedillas

Maybe I am speaking for myself here.. but I can NEVER turn down a philly cheesesteak sandwich. The moment I see it on a menu my decision of what to eat has been made.

CARROT GINGER SALAD

So today, I need some good-for-me, healing foods to clean up my body a bit after all that. One of my favorite combinations is carrot and ginger. They complement each other so well and are so good for you. I make this salad when I need an immunity boost and it's so easy and quick to make.
