Healthy Buffalo Turkey Meatballs (paleo, GF)

Healthy-Buffalo-Turkey-Meatballs-paleo-perchancetocook-3

I had another recipe planned for today’s post, but I got so excited about these Healthy Buffalo Turkey Meatballs that I just couldn’t wait to post the recipe. I’m a huge buffalo sauce lover, so I may be biased…buuuut, these meatballs are honestly one of the best things that I have eaten in a long time!

Seriously, these are so addicting.

Which ends up not being a bad thing because they are a healthier version of meatballs, and a healthier way to get your buffalo chicken or turkey fix. :)

Dutch Oven Peach & Maple Chicken Thighs (paleo, GF)

Dutch-Oven-Peach-Maple-Chicken-Thighs-paleo-perchancetocook

I recently visited my parents in Florida, which is always the best time. The air is fresh, the sunsets are beautiful, and I get to eat lots of yummy homemade food. :) My mom spoils me with her home cuisine and I love it! During this visit, she made the best chicken thighs recipe. I literally found myself almost yelling “Yummmmm!”, as I ate it.

Since I have never made chicken thighs before (I stick to the same old chicken breast whenever I buy chicken at the grocery store), I decided that it was high time to do so.

And thus this Dutch Oven Peach & Maple Chicken Thighs recipe was born.

Hellooo Summer! And hello to these Frozen Strawberry Cocoa Pick-Me-Ups! I know we are currently well into summer, being almost August and all, but we’ve been reaching the triple digits here in Texas lately and the scorching heat is making it feel more like summer to me now than ever. It is just soooo dang hot! So, I’ve been escaping the heat with homemade frozen smoothies and icees galore.

My current favorite all natural frozen treat: Frozen Strawberry Cocoa Pick-Me-Ups.

Baked Paleo Meatballs (gf)

Baked-Paleo-Meatballs-perchancetocook-1

I’ve always liked baking meatballs instead of frying them. You use less oil, the meat is a bit drier (which I like), and making them is a lot less work.

These Baked Paleo Meatballs are a quick and easy way to add protein to any meal. Which is why I’ve been eating them so much lately. Read more

Easy Apricot-Mustard Chicken Bake (paleo, GF)

My main meal requirements, as of late, are that they have to be 1) easy to put together, 2) filling, 3) flavorful, and 4) healthy. Which is why I’ve been testing out delicious ways to bake various proteins and veggies so often. (Is it obvious by my recent posts?)

I recently came up with this Easy Apricot-Mustard Chicken Bake and just fell in love with the homemade apricot jam and mustard sauce that coats the chicken. It’s tart, sweet, fruity, yet spicy, and tastes amazing on chicken. This 30 minute chicken bake should definitely be on your healthy summer meal to-do list! Read more

On busy nights, or even on regular nights, I love being able to put a dish or two into the oven, and then 25 minutes later, a complete meal is ready. This gives me time to clean up a bit, to catch up on emails, or to just relax. I love it all even more when minimal prep work is involved. Which is the case for this delicious 25 Minute Lemon Tilapia and Asparagus.

Ireland Adventures- the Food + Wedding Venue Hunt

ireland-travels-36
The Ring of Kerry

My first travel post, ah! This is a part of the blog that I have been meaning to incorporate since the beginning. I literally have thousands upon thousands of travel related photos documenting hotels and meals from various travel adventures. It’s not that I didn’t want to do anything with these photos, I actually religiously review all of my favorite hotels and restaurants on trip advisor. ( 135 reviews and counting! :) ) I just wasn’t sure how to incorporate the travel aspect to the blog, especially since I just got the hang of this whole food blog thing.

So, I’ll start with my most recent trip. A two-part trip, actually, to Ireland where I visited 14 potential wedding venues and tasted SO MUCH good food. I went once with my mom and sister, we saw 10 venues. And then I went with my fiancé and we saw 4.
