Butternut squash and Kale tacos

butternutsquashkaletaco

After making both tri tip and a fully rack of baby back ribs in the same week, I did the impossible – overdosed on meat. Therefore, I focused on meatless recipes for the next week. I was somehow not aware that Trader Joe’s sold their own low carb soft tortillas. I love the Mission low … [Read More]

Confessions of a Cheese Addict

Formaticum Cheese Storage Bags

You know how much I love cheese? Enough that I bought special ‘Cheese Storage Bags‘ on Amazon. To be fair, it’s not like I sit around all day eating cheese (just part of the day), so I often lose cheese to mold. I HATE wasting food, especially yummy cheese, so I’m giving these a try. … [Read More]

Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Rice Review (plus stir fried ‘rice’ recipe)

wn-org-riced-cauliflower

That’s right. Trader Joe’s now sells pre-made cauliflower rice. ORGANIC Trader Joe’s cauliflower rice. My first thought was ‘gee, it’s not that tough to make cauliflower rice’. Then I thought about the nights when I’m starving, cranky and don’t want to deal with breaking down and processing a cauliflower. Which is pretty often, honestly. So … [Read More]

Unsexy (but tasty) Broccoli and Radish Recipe

It's actually fairly pretty, but still not sexy. I guess I shouldn't be food-shaming the poor veggies.

That’s right. This recipe is as unsexy as a recipe can get. I mean, broccoli and radishes? Woop de woo. But I found myself staring into a mostly empty fridge at 9 PM on a week night. All I had in there was a head of broccoli and a bunch of radishes leftover from my … [Read More]

Recipe: Broccoli Pesto Sauce

Broccoli Pesto Sauce

I get a Vegetable Only CSA box from Farm Fresh to You every other week. Normally I customize it (another awesome feature of Farm Fresh to You’s CSA program), but I’ve been so busy that I have been getting the default veggies. This is good thing, though, because then I get veggies I wouldn’t normally … [Read More]

Recipe: Pumpkin Red Curry

Pumpkin Red Curry

I just got my CSA basket full of veggies and had a brand new bag of red curry paste. This automatically led to the thought of ‘red curry vegetables’ for dinner. Then while picking up some additional coconut cream, I saw canned pumpkin on display. That lead to the addition of ‘pumpkin red curry’. ONE … [Read More]

Low Carb Pumpkin Recipes

Golden Beet Pumpkin Soup

Tis the season to be pumpkin! Everywhere you look, pumpkin this, pumpkin that. But what always disappoints me is that it’s actually “pumpkin pie spice” flavored. These recipes don’t usually have PUMPKIN in them. Just nutmeg/cinnamon/cloves to EMULATE the taste of pumpkin pie. I feel this is deceptive. I LOVE the subtle taste of pumpkin. … [Read More]

Grilled Avocado!

Grilled Avocado

That’s right. Grilled Avocado. While BBQ’ing it up this last weekend, my boyfriend decided to get adventurous and see what a grilled avocado tastes like. And you know what? Turns out grilled avocados are awesome! Especially when sprinkled with cheese. We managed to score perfectly ripe avocados. As anyone familiar with avocados know, they go … [Read More]
