One-Skillet Chicken with Mushrooms & Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Creating a one-skillet chicken meal serves a couple different uses for me. First off, this One-Skillet Chicken with Mushrooms & Sun-Dried Tomatoes makes a hearty and simple meal for you. One skillet meals are the ticket to a quick but fulfilling meal.

Second, it allows me to practice some kitchen techniques I haven’t had much experience with in the past. I sincerely enjoy learning new cooking skills, so this catapulted to the top of my recipe testing list after I saw similar recipes around the web.


Salmon Cake Eggs Benedict |

Salmon Cake Eggs Benedict

Breakfast, lunch, dinner, or brunch — Salmon Cake Eggs Benedict is a great choice for all of them! Salmon cakes get a facelift with serrano peppers and herbs. Top it off with poached eggs and homemade hollandaise and you’ve got a meal like no other. Of course, the whole dish is gluten free, grain free, and paleo.

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of breakfast foods, so of course I put a breakfast-y spin on salmon cakes. But don’t let that stop you from making these salmon cakes for any meal. Add them into your meal prep rotation—they’re quick, easy, and great on the go!


Paleo Plantain Gnocchi with Savory Short Ribs |

Plantain Gnocchi with Savory Short Ribs

Plantain Gnocchi with Savory Short Ribs takes a bit of attention, but the results are well worth the work.

Life can take so many interesting twists, can’t it? In one of my recent recipes, I wrote that I had planned to post a recipe a week for the whole year, but that plan crumpled. Fast forward to this week, and I’ve hardly taken any time to work on recipes or this blog. Multiple amazing opportunities have presented themselves, and I’d be foolish to put them off.

That’s starting with the positive. On the not-so-great side of things, my oldest cat Loki has been sick…very sick. He seems to be on the up and up, but we’re still not sure if he’ll be with us much longer.

Frankly, it’s a perfect time for some comfort food. Where else to turn but pillowy plantain dumplings and meaty, saucy short ribs?


Flourless Paleo Plantain Empanadas |

Flourless Plantain Empanadas

Flourless Plantain Empanadas just made dinner mobile (and tasty AF).

After hours of working with plantains to craft my favorite tortillas, I started dreaming up all the other ways I could use the smooth, pliable dough that a boiled and blended plantain makes. Of course, I’ve seen a few other recipes online that take advantage of one ingredient plantain dough, so I knew it would be a success.

Instead of trying to dream up a new flavor combo, I went the traditional route—a simple savory ground beef empanada filling.
