One Pot Ginger Chicken + Rice with Peanut Sauce

This is a fabulous, inexpensive, flavorful recipe that uses ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen and pantry. Makes it perfect during this time of quarantine and uncertainty. There’s no doubt quarantine is hard, but we can do hard things! Cooking is great for my mental health and anxiety and also gives me a…

Coq Au Vin, Instant Pot Edition

Gosh I love this meal. And the French. Only they could turn an inexpensive meat like chicken thighs, braise it in some wine and turn it into a gourmet dish. Coq Au Vin sounds super fancy, but it’s shockingly simple. And you can throw it in the Instant Pot or Dutch Oven in the morning…

I had also riced a TON of cauliflower so I thought I’d put it to good use. One cauliflower yields a TON of cauli rice FYI. It’s…

Sweet N Spicy Roasted Eggplant Sandie

I used to detest Eggplant. I thought it was slimy and bitter and seedy. But eggplant is kind of like okra, you just gotta show it a little love, treat her kindly and cook her right! Then it’ll B-L-O-W your mind and the possibilities for it are endless. These days I ALWAYS either have a…

Macadamia Crusted Mahi Mahi*

Note- you can use any white fish really. I’ve had this with haddock, halibut, tilapia and even cod! A thicker fish definitely works better because the crust is pretty flavorul and substantial. I adapted this from the 21 Day Keto Reset as well. They served it with a brown butter sauce in the book, but…

Collard Turkey Wraps with Herbacious Tahini “Cole Slaw”

I got this idea from the 21 Day Keto Reset as well. I never thought of using Collards as a wrap before until I bought one at Whole Foods made by Eat Gud Whole Foods. I became obsessed with making a delicious lemony tahini dressing and making a delicious collard wrap. So this is a…
