Squash Au Gratin (Paleo, GF)

Squash Au Gratin (Paleo, GF), a healthy Fall side dish |Perchance to Cook,

In the last few weeks, I have realized that I need more “sides” in my life. More creative options and recipes for side dishes, that is.

I know that plain veggies will always be great as a side dish, but what if you want plain veggies, a meat, PLUS a healthy something else on your plate? Like a veggie casserole, perhaps? This Squash Au Gratin is a creamy yet non-dairy paleo dish made with zucchini, yellow squash, and butternut squash, and topped with crumbled plantain chips… I mean, does that not sounds like the perfect side dish for Fall?!

“In this town we call home. Everyone hail to the pumpkin song! This is Halloween! This is Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!”

Anyone else get this Nightmare Before Christmas song stuck in their head around this time of year or every time they hear the word pumpkin???

I sure do, especially because I have had pumpkin on the brain lately… so much so that I have found myself banned from singing the pumpkin song in my house. 🙂 Read more

Paleo Italian Meatballs and Sauce (GF)

Paleo Italian Meatballs and Sauce (GF)| Perchance to Cook,

Do you ever get inspired to eat something after watching an actor eat that food in a movie or TV Show? This happens to me ALL the time.

For example, when I used to watch the Gilmore Girls, I always wanted coffee and pizza. And most recently, I have been watching the Sopranos and thus have been wanting Italian food all the time, or more specifically, “spaghetti and gravy”. MAN does watching that show make me want to eat Italian food… so much so that I ended up making this Paleo Italian Meatballs and Sauce recipe. 🙂

It’s been over three months since I got back from my honeymoon and I knew that if I didn’t write this now, I never would!

I really loved getting to know the Irish towns of Kilkenny, Durrow, and Cashel, and wanted to share it here. I put all three of these locations into one blog post because they are all within an hour of one another, and thus really easy to do as part of one trip.

Paleo Lemon Blueberry Banana Bread (GF)

Paleo Lemon Blueberry Banana Bread (GF)...Clean eating at it's most delicious! |Perchance To Cook,

My best recipes always have no plan, rhyme or reason to them. I get a random urge to make something specific… caused by a craving, an experience, or seeing an ingredient, and I find myself drawn to the kitchen. Before I know it, I have ingredients out, notes scribbled, and off I go.

Like for this recipe, for example, I noticed how my fruit bowl only had ripe bananas and lemons inside of it. Which I thought would be perfect for a Paleo Lemon Blueberry Banana Bread!
