Lemon Rosemary Salt

Flavored salts seem fancy—but this lemon rosemary salt couldn’t be easier. This combo makes a crowd-pleasing rub for roast chicken & countless other dishes!

I’m eager to share this recipe because learning to cook from scratch can be daunting. Many people assume that healthy home-cooked meals are equivalent to returning to a desk job on Monday morning to mindlessly stare at a computer screen for hours.

It doesn’t have to be that bland and boring. Trust me.

Stuffed Salmon (Two Ways)

I hope you’re a fan of fish, because after making stuffed salmon you’ll want it all. the. time.

This is one of those showstopper recipes that seems extremely fancy when you serve it, but in reality it’s quite easy and insanely versatile. Even though the recipe below will show you the two ways I prepared it, there are really endless possibilities. And I’ll give you a few more ideas for filling the salmon (that I haven’t tested, but I can bet will be good), that you can easily pull off on your own using the same method. So read on and enjoy.

Carrot Ribbons with Rosemary Butter Sauce

How fun does this recipe sound? I mean, who hasn’t fantasized about eating ribbons?!

Admittedly, not me. But my cat has. Waffles (yes, that’s the name of one of my cats) loves Christmastime solely for the ribbons involved. He doesn’t eat them, but damn does he love chewing on them. So he would probably go apeshit over this recipe if I actually wanted to feed my cat carrot ribbons with rosemary butter. Fat chance that I’m going to let him eat off of my plate, though.

Whoops – *sigh*. Somehow I always make the conversation about my cats. Let’s get back to the food, shall we?

Flourless Cherry Plantain Muffins

I’ve been in a bit of a cooking rut lately. Luckily, these cherry plantain muffins happened and I finally have a new recipe to share!

It should be no surprise that I have yet another plantain recipe to share. I’m going to guess about 40% of my recipes use plantains in some way. Okay, that’s a big percentage…maybe not that much. But still. The point is – I love plantains.

When I buy plantains, I tend to buy a lot. Like, anywhere between 6 and a dozen at a time. In Fargo, ND, you can’t always expect to find certain things in the produce aisle, and plantains are one of those things. To top it off, the only grocery stores that carry them lately are the stores I don’t typically shop at, so I have to go out of my way to track down plantains.

So when I get them, I get a bunch.

And then I experiment.

Silky Butternut Squash & Apple Soup | DoYouEvenPaleo.net

Silky Butternut Squash & Apple Soup with Toasted Pecans

Depending on the outcome of Groundhog Day, it’s a little late in the season to be eating butternut squash & apple soup. If there are six more weeks of winter to look forward to, though, this silky soup is ideal.

Ah, Groundhog Day. That strange holiday where we depend on a single mammal to predict the weather. Does anyone know why this is still a thing? I mean I understand the historical significance. Still, it seems weird that on this one day, we throw on some science-and-common-sense-blocking glasses and pretend that we really trust what Punxsutawney Phil does. I mean, the little ground squirrel is only right about 39% of the time. Less than 50% is less than chance! How many other historical traditions have been tossed out because they’re incredibly ridiculous? Why do we hold on this this one?
