Cherry Tomato Arrabbiata Zoodles (paleo, GF, vegan)- Italy in a bowl in 15 minutes!

Luckily this has resulted in lots of delicious tomato recipe experimentation in the kitchen.

French Tomato, Tuna, & Mustard Quiche (paleo, GF)

French Tomato, Tuna, & Mustard Quiche-- a refined Paleo quiche made with a sweet potato crust.  | Perchance to Cook

I got the idea to make this quiche while sitting in a café in Bordeaux. Well, it actually wasn’t my idea. It was written on the chalkboard in front of me. “Plat du jour: Quiche thon, tomates, et moutarde”. How interesting!

As I waited for my croissant and coffee to arrive, I couldn’t stop thinking about how intriguing this quiche flavor combination was. I quickly jotted down a note to make this quiche at home, and then continued people watching. Read more

Green Onion and Orange Asian Salmon (paleo, GF)


I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I don’t have many salmon recipes on this blog. There’s two to be exact. One recipe with smoked salmon in it, and one salmon fishcake recipe.

Since this blog is a pretty accurate reflection of what I eat at home, and of my likes and dislikes… I guess it’s safe to say that I haven’t liked salmon all that much over the last few years. Which is so strange to me because I used to absolutely love it growing up, and I’m starting to love it again now!

I recently made this easy Green Onion and Orange Asian Salmon recipe and surprised myself when I licked my plate clean. :) Read more

It’s bursting with warm tomato, hot cayenne pepper, and chili powder flavors, which is complimented by a delicate maple sweetness. It’s juicy, it’s tender, and it’s so dang delicious! I’m not sure I need another pulled pork recipe after this one. :)

Healthy Buffalo Turkey Meatballs (paleo, GF)


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)


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.
