Bacon Wrapped Asparagus [Whole30, Paleo]

Looks fancy. Easy to make. Normally when I have steak, I love some sort of white potato as the accompaniment (mashed potato, baked potato, oven roasted potatoes--I don’t discriminate).  It wasn’t until I got older that I realized that I should probably have SOME sort of color or green vegetable on my plate too, which… Continue reading Bacon Wrapped Asparagus [Whole30, Paleo]

Easy Garlic Shrimp [Whole30, Paleo]

Who are you calling a shrimp? When I was growing up, the garlic shrimp we would have came from a frozen package and I am sure had an entire stick of butter in it.  Don’t get me wrong, it was delicious.  However, it was not the cleanest and healthiest option by today’s standards.  So I… Continue reading Easy Garlic Shrimp [Whole30, Paleo]

Puff Daddy Pastry in the house!

Chex Mix, I mean Snack Mix [GF option]

My lawyer made me change the name of this recipe so I wouldn’t get sued. My love with any snack mix started at a young age.  Who remembers the Nabisco owned snack mix called “Doo Dads?”  When I was growing it, it came in a blue box with the red Nabisco logo at the top… Continue reading Chex Mix, I mean Snack Mix [GF option]

Airfryer Truffle Fries [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

A shake does not come with these fries. French Fries: simple to make, but dangerous because you may just become addicted.  These truffle fries only require a few ingredients and a few minutes in the airfryer. They are perfect with a hamburger, salad, or as a happy hour snack.   The hardest part of this recipe… Continue reading Airfryer Truffle Fries [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

Homemade Pico De Gallo [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

You’re gonna want a pico this. We recently ordered some fresh produce from a local farm in the area.  (I highly recommend checking out Needmore Farms if you are in the RTP area of Raleigh.)  My eyes were definitely bigger than my stomach because I ordered more fruits and veggies than we could reasonably eat,… Continue reading Homemade Pico De Gallo [Whole30, Paleo, Vegan]

Spicy Garlic Shrimp [Paleo, Whole 30]

These shrimp will be gone in no thyme.  Have you ever been to that chain restaurant, Bahama Breeze?  On their menu they have these jerk shrimp that come in a skillet as an appetizer and are served with the most amazing Cuban bread.  The shrimp are baked in a white wine, buttery broth with garlic,… Continue reading Spicy Garlic Shrimp [Paleo, Whole 30]
