It's in gratitude that I honor my friend and Modern Mamas Podcast cohost, Jess, for the naming of this sauce. It is, in fact, potentially as addictive as a drug, but without all the nasty shit that comes along with drug use. Actually, it's quite the opposite: life giving, nourishing, uplifting, and energizing (the kind [...]

coconut tahini stir fry

*Note: this is an old recipe that I decided to revamp because we've fallen deeply in love with this one all over again this past week. Dinner done in less than 20 and flavor that is to DIE for. My husband keeps asking for it, and I keep using the coconut tahini sauce on E [...]

crispy skin broiled wild salmon

By | 2017-10-01T19:15:00+00:00 September 30th, 2017|Marinades and Sauces, Pastured Meat, Recipes|

This recipe has been a LONG time in the making. If you've been following along for long, you've seen countless salmon posts on Instagram. I go through weeks (especially during my second trimester), where I eat salmon every single day, and the crispier the skin, the happier this mama. The reality of my salmon escapades, [...]

It's berry season!! I am clearly about as excited as it gets when it comes to berries. I so look forward to Saturday morning beach walks followed by farmers market coffee and shopping. Fresh, bold, delicious berries are always at the top of my list. This past weekend, we bought a whole bunch of strawberries [...]

paleo pineapple pulled pork

Cravings. Let's talk about them. ALL I WANT IS PORK (and salmon, always salmon). A couple weeks ago, my husband and I were in San Jose and stopped into the new Whole Foods. They had a whole glorious "paleo bar" and right smack in the middle was the most delicious smelling pork ever. Falling apart. [...]

So, the word is out. I am pregnant. And we are THRILLED! Read more on how cool this is here. I have to admit, though, that the first 4 months of this pregnancy were some of the toughest of my life. I was very sick... All. The. Time. The fact that morning sickness starts with [...]

lemony garlic grilled chicken breast

Summer is in full swing (I cannot believe we are in August. When did that happen?), and somehow I magically learned how to grill. It's always been something I just left to Rusty (no, not because he's a guy, but just because I had never done it and he had), but I got the urge [...]

Almost 3 years ago now, Rusty and I honeymooned in Kauai (see pre manbun Rusty?). It was an amazing trip filled with hiking, kayaking, adventuring, and of course, eating. When we travel, we always make a point of trying to experience the place as locals would. We avoid resorts at all costs, stay away from [...]

garlic balsamic aioli burgers

By | 2016-05-07T17:01:31+00:00 May 6th, 2016|Health, Marinades and Sauces, Pastured Meat, Recipes|

The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and I am craving burgers. But first, a bit of somewhat sad news: Rusty and I have decided to take a little break from dairy - not because I think dairy is inherently bad (in fact, good quality, especially raw, dairy is incredibly nutrient dense) - [...]
