Weeknight Skillet

By rachel | March 10, 2022

I’m no different than anyone else. Constantly fretting about dinner. It seems like I haven’t even eaten breakfast yet and the looming question is in my head…What am I going to make for dinner?! So one night I randomly had a pound of ground turkey leftover at the cafe. I brought it home and was …

Basic Frittata (and how to jazz it up!)

By rachel | March 5, 2022

Before I knew about the fritatta I was a quiche kinda girl. It is creamy and flaky, much like a pie for breakfast. Insert my 30’s and my slowing metabolism and I created crust less quiche. But it wasn’t the same. So I created a gluten free paleo inspired crust that was amazing but was …

Paleo Banana Bread

Paleo Banana Bread

By rachel | August 2, 2018

Paleo Banana Bread! Yay!!!!! Being that we have a 2 year old, there are always bananas in our house. Elias loves his “nanas”. However, he has the attention span of a gnat and I am often left with banana remnants that if not used quickly will go bad. I HATE wasting food. So I throw …

Yay Math! (do you sense the sarcasm?)

By rachel | July 6, 2018

Kitchen conversions are the cornerstone of creating and manipulating recipes, please enjoy my handy graphic! Back in the day I had a very sloppy version taped to my recipe binder. I hadn’t even finished writing this blog and my Mom had already asked for a copy! OK so as a former English teacher, “Yay Math!” …

Balsamic Cobb Salad

By rachel | June 30, 2018

Balsamic Cobb Salad has become a staple in our house. It’s not unusual if I make this salad 3 times in one week. It is THAT GOOD. Also, it is that filling! Stop eating salads that leave you hungry. (Post dinner snacking is the ultimate sabotage!) The good fat from the bacon and avocado balance …

Rachel’s Chicken Marinade

By rachel | June 30, 2018

Rachel’s Chicken Marinade was created to solve one problem; dry, flavorless, grilled boneless chicken breasts. Before this marinade existed I had to beg my husband to cook boneless chicken on the grill. Now he’s happy to make me extra so that we have food for the week! I often whip up a big batch and …

Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette

By rachel | June 30, 2018

This Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette literally saved my marriage to salad. Confession: I’m literally addicted to ranch salad dressing. So what’s the big deal? Well I can’t have dairy…comfortably. So after years of trying to find a ranch substitute I have discovered that ranch is ranch and I just need to not have it or have …

Don’t get grilled by bacteria this summer!

By rachel | June 27, 2018

With 12 years of restaurant experience I’ve seen the good, the bad, and the very ugly when it comes to food temps.  I cannot stress enough how important temping foods, especially meat, is to your family’s safety. In the biz these foods are known as “hazardous” because if not cooked correctly they can be exactly …
