Hi everyone, I'm back and better than ever! What a crazy year 2020 has been.

Ever since reading Cure Tooth Decay by Ramiel Nagel, I've been eating a lot more organ meats like I did as a child. I always loved heart, though I've rarely eaten it here in the USA. However, heart is pretty common at my local farmer's market, so I'm happy to say that I'm able to … Continue reading Heart & carrot with kale, spaghetti squash, and leeks
I was at the farmer's market recently and came upon a stand selling various lamb pieces, including lamb breast. I'd never seen this type of cut before (long and thin), but the woman told me it would be delicious wrapped in vegetables and baked or fried. So I decided to try it and see how … Continue reading Roasted Lamb Breast, Beets and Beet Green Salad
I made a delicious Shepherd's Pie recently, and it was so good I thought of doing it again. Then I thought hmm, maybe I'll try something different. So I made a deconstructed version, with all the layers in the pie I used, except separated out and cooked. This is a very easy meal that skips … Continue reading Deconstructed Shepherd’s Pie

However, I remembered an old recipe I used to do years back with parmesan on top of the fish, and I thought it would be a great … Continue reading Parmesan Crusted Cod, Cauliflower Cilantro Rice and Shishito Peppers

This recipe can be vegan, vegetarian or carnivorous, … Continue reading Stuffed Potato Pancakes – Vegan, Vegetarian or Carnivorous!
I was at Whole Foods recently for lunch, and I saw some bison meatballs at the buffet. I thought, "Oh, that's an interesting lunch idea," so I tried them. They were overcooked, dry, crusty (most likely reheated from the day before) and basically bland all around. When I got home I realized that I could … Continue reading Bison Quinoa Meatballs with Sage and Chive
If you would have told me a year ago that I would be adding meat recipes to my website, I would have laughed in your face. Yet, here I am, posting another delicious meat recipe! I went vegan strictly for health reasons (and got very educated in plant-based nutrition along the way), and now I … Continue reading Cilantro Jalapeno Sliders with Roasted Sweet Potato
Well, here we go, my first full-on recipe with meat. While I eat primarily plant-based, I do have a boyfriend that I cook for, and, in case it wasn't obvious--I love cooking! As I've gotten older and learned more about nutrition, I've realized that incorporating high-quality meat into your diet is a pivotal part of … Continue reading Fettuccine with Basil Lamb and Green Onion – Gluten Free!
