Lower Carb Fajitas

I was thinking about my good buddy Peter the other day and how I promised him that I’d make a lower carb version of something so that he could have it. In the ten plus years that Peter and I have been family, I have made this promise multiple times and fall short. Mostly dueContinue reading “Lower Carb Fajitas”

Kung Pao Cauliflower with Vegetable Fried Rice

Sometimes you just need good Chinese food. I mean I’ve never met an egg roll I didn’t like, okay that’s not entirely true, I have. But I digress, I didn’t even make egg rolls for this. I should have, but I didn’t. What I did do though was turn cauliflower into Kung Pao Chicken soContinue reading “Kung Pao Cauliflower with Vegetable Fried Rice”

Not My Dad’s Nachos

Y’all my Dad can do so many wonderful things in the kitchen, but his nachos are on another level. I have great memories of nomming on them while watching a game, late night movie or even after a long night out. And Dad, if you’re reading this, I’m sorry but I had to make themContinue reading “Not My Dad’s Nachos”

Not My Mama’s Pot Roast

One of the meals my Mama always made really well was Pot Roast. She’d put it in the crock pot with some potatoes, carrots, onions, a little stock garlic and bay leaf.

Not Fried, Not Chicken

You read that right. It’s not fried and it certainly isn’t chicken. In fact, it’s oyster mushrooms and I used the air fryer (because its Summer in Florida and I’m not frying ANYTHING in hot grease, I’m just saying). So if you’re like me and on this plant based journey, then you have seen allContinue reading “Not Fried, Not Chicken”

Chickpea “Tuna” Salad

The title is throwing you off right? Yeah it did me too when the first time someone told me you could use chickpeas (or garbanzo beans), to make tuna. Lemme think about this for a minute. Yeah no, that’s not gonna work. Oh but sweetheart, it does! And this quick salad is pretty versatile asContinue reading “Chickpea “Tuna” Salad”

Sausage + Peppers times Two

I first fell in love with Sausage and peppers when I lived in Chicago. There was this little vendor just down the street from my studio that served them dog style; hoagie roll steamed, Italian sausage hot or mild, flat top seared peppers, onions and garlic, and topped with the gooey mozzarella and provolone cheeseContinue reading “Sausage + Peppers times Two”

“Fish” Taco Tuesday

Who doesn’t love tacos? I mean seriously if you know someone who actually says no to tacos, maybe reevaluate that relationship, kidding but only slightly. Everyone should love tacos and for the most part they are a pretty fool proof kind of dish. Although, the best ones in my opinion come from Taco trucks atContinue reading ““Fish” Taco Tuesday”
