White Chicken Chili

White Chicken Chili

This hearty White Chicken Chili is warming, creamy and comforting. This is perfect for Fall and a family favorite. I use Manchego because it is an A2 dairy sheep cheese, which is less inflammatory and frankly I can eat it. But for all of you […]

Lemon Blueberry Scones (Keto)

Lemon Blueberry Scones (Keto)

This recipe is one of my favorites and adapted from my lovely friend Heather’s recipe. It’s so quick and easy to make that I usually make a batch a week. My youngest detests lemon though so sometimes I will leave out the zest and put […]

Heather’s Immunity Drink

Heather’s Immunity Drink

We were a fairly sick household in February.  I say fairly because it was not all at once but one at a time… thank you suppressed immune system… When I finally fell to a cold my lovely friend Heather delivered the ingredients for her amazing […]

Paleo Beef & Pepper Hand Pie

Paleo Beef & Pepper Hand Pie

Every time I have been pregnant I have craved Meat Pies.  It has been years since I have made it though, due to my healing journey… which, I have to say, must have worked well because I am pregnant again in my 40’s! 😂 I […]

Ancestral Lamb Meatballs

Hazelnut Sourdough Bread (Keto, Paleo, Gluten-Free)

Sourdough Cassava Pancakes

Sourdough Cassava Pancakes

It has been a long run of sitting out on our Pancake Saturday watching my family eat and enjoy a pancake recipe that took me years to adapt and perfect.  When I had my Hashimoto’s diagnosis, grains were out… even beneficial grains like einkorn.   […]

Instant Pot Shredded Chicken

Instant Pot Shredded Chicken

This I feel goes without saying, but meal prep really helps during the week… and who doesn’t love shredded chicken?  I do a roast chicken most Sundays for dinner, but the kids prefer it shredded to put in tacos and lettuce boats.  It’s simply smart […]

Cast Iron Sweet Potato Fries

Cast Iron Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potato fries are one of the few carb-full treats I can handle with Hashimoto’s.  My favorite to use are the Japanese purple sweet potatoes because they have the most resistant starch of all the sweet potato family, the flavor milder, and they also retain […]

Cast Iron Lamb & Collard Greens

Cast Iron Lamb & Collard Greens

I love cast iron dinners… they are tastier than sheet pan dinners clean up is easier.  Just scrape off and swish with water and put the pan back in the hot oven or towel dry… with a dark towel of course! I love this meal […]
