Baked Oatmeal

There has been a trend around here lately. Work keeps falling through and it’s been cold. Naturally, I’m drawn to the kitchen to keep warm. Since I was planning on working today, but now I’m home, why not have a fun, warm breakfast? It’s 30° outside right now so something warm sounds wonderful. This weather…

Delicata Pie

I recently became obsessed with delicata squash. It’s fantastic on its own. It tastes almost like caramel. With the holidays approaching, I wanted to try my hand at a pie and I knew this would be the perfect filling! It reminds me of butterscotch. Don’t toss the roasted pulp and seeds. They’re nature’s granola.  …

Cajun Stew

I won’t bore y’all with another story about my second home, but I did wake up today to it smelling like a campfire from burning a fire all day yesterday. I love wood fires, and the smell got me thinking about camping, baking, slow cooking. Basically I was cold and needed to warm up. What…

Upgraded Chimichurri

Mushrooms keep finding their way into my fridge lately. Sorry mushroom haters! I have always loved them, all of them! Last week I attended an appreciation dinner for work, and I wasn’t too thrilled but I went. I knew it was going to wreck my oil-free ways. I could have just had tea, but there…

Country-Fried Brussel Sprouts with Cream Gravy

I really love my produce subscription. I legit look forward to every other Tuesday when my rainbow-filled treasure chest arrives. This Tuesday, I received the unfortunate gift of brussel sprouts. Definitely not my favorite. I’m not one to waste food so I had to get creative. What would any good Southerner do with something they…

Red Enchilada Sauce

I’ve always been more of a tomatillo gal, that is until I decided to make my own red sauce for enchiladas. It’s really simple and freezes well, so make a double batch! Don’t skip any of the steps and definitely use dried, whole chiles. I used arbol, hatch, and Anaheim, but you can use whatever…

BBQ Pulled Shrooms

When I was in Houston, I picked up a pack of king oyster mushrooms. They have a great meaty texture which lends a bit of a bite to them. They’re pretty fun mushrooms so give them a try. To make this pulled pork-ish dish, I cut off the caps and used them for something else….

N’oyster Po’boy

Sandwiches are my favorite. Delicious fillings surrounded by carbs? Um, yes! My mission to stay oil free and stick to whole foods has kept me from enjoying as many sandwiches as I would like. Actually, I went over a month without one. Crazy, right? Well, I found myself in my hometown of Houston where you…
