One of my go-to nutritious comfort foods are these Healthy Family Style Stuffed Peppers and Tomatoes. I mean, there really isn’t anything quite like roasted… almost caramelized, peppers and tomatoes stuffed with a homemade Italian style meat sauce.

Whole30 Shepherd's Pie | Perchance to Cook, www.perchancetocook.com

I’m on day 6 of the Whole30 and I have been surprised by how much I have gotten out of it so far. One of the main things that I have realized is that I don’t need to use natural sweeteners (like honey, or maple syrup), as much. For example, normally, I would have thought to add honey

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

It’s been rainy and cold over here in Northern Ireland lately. Actually, the weather has been kind of crazy. Yesterday, for example, it snowed on my way to work. Then before lunch, it rained at an angle which hit the windows hard enough to make people look up from their computers. The afternoon was incredibly sunny

Grain-free Turkey & Beef Fall Spiced Meatloaf (paleo, GF)- a wonderful filling dish with a hint of Fall flavors. | Perchance to Cook, www.perchancetocook.com

I might be a little toooo excited about Fall. And not just because I love wearing boots and light jackets. It’s mostly because I love Fall foods and the Fall food mindset. Comfort-food becomes the norm, pumpkin everything is celebrated, baking with apples is expected, and cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves come out of the cupboard.

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.
