Paleo Egg Muffins

It’s officially day 9 of our Whole30 journey. If you don’t have time to click on the link, that’s 30 days without dairy, grain, added sugar, legumes, soy, alcohol, vegetable oils, grains and processed foods. (Gulp.) I can’t say a bagel with delectable cream cheese (preferably from the heaven sent ovens of Gotham Bagels) hasn’t…

Roasted Cauliflower

I really don’t consider myself a pork schnitzel kind of girl. I consider myself an all-you-can-dip, overboard for seafood, bread-head kind of lady. When checking out the menu at one of the most delicious establishments in Madison, there are many possibilities considered prior to a pork schnitzel. However, during restaurant week your choices are limited. Sometimes you make rash decisions….

Summer Rolls

This weekend, I learned my television is capable of passively exhibiting a NASCAR race. My dad snuck the alleged sport in during yesterday’s Packer game. I would find myself all excited about a touchdown then CLICK.  vvvrrrrmmm. vvvvrrrrmmmm. Something in a southern accent. vrrrrmmm. vrrrrmmm.  I unconsciously shoot a look of panic at my mother. She giggles…

Quin-wow* Salad

*All bragging rights for the Quin-wow name belong strictly to Eric. Until I googled it…. Last night, when I fell in love with this salad, I came to two conclusions. 1. I cannot call this the quinoa, bok choy, feta, strawberry salad with toasted almonds and sesame seeds. Well, I could. But how much fun is it…

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Last fall I went to a friends for dinner and returned home with more butternut squash than I knew what to do with. Yeah, I didn’t see that one coming. Fortunately, I recently encountered a life changing butternut squash soup with browned butter. So I began the hunt for the perfect recipe… as always. While…

Coconut Almond Granola

I could have sworn I was on an episode of boiling points the other day. We were at the Ben Folds concert and I was absolutely certain that, in enough time, a television crew was going to pop out from the crowd and give me a couple of hundred bucks for not letting the man behind me…

Stuffed Green Pepper Soup

I attended the University of Wisconsin Whitewater. For some reason, the people of Whitewater refused to allow any sort of dining establishment that was remotely healthy and delicious. We had the typical fast food staples and bar food. There were a few greasy spoon options. There was one place you only went to when your…

Nutritionist Eats

I’ve recently started following a friend’s fiancée (I’ve met her once and thanks to her love of food and our facebook friendship, I feel as though we’re friends too!) who is a nutritionist. She recently posted a fantastic combination I just tried. Squash, spinach & blue cheese.  It’s filling and healthy. I completley recommend it…
