Grain Free Vanilla Wafers with Apple Jam

Ah, and old childhood favorite, vanilla wafers. The boxed kind have that bite to them, but these are far more fluffy and chewy. But the flavors are the exact same! These would be so good in a vanilla pudding, or better yet, dipped in peanut butter the way I did when I was a kid!…

Brisket Carnitas Tacos

Have I mentioned I love tacos? Because they may just be one of my favorite things in the world, and brisket one of my favorite cuts of meat. This dish is inspired by my love of the flavors of traditional carnitas, but the saucy goodness of an enchilada. The spices are perfectly balanced and the…

Cashew Chicken Stir Fry

Cashew Chicken Stir fry I used to LOVE Chinese take out. So much so that the owner of the Chinese food restaurant in the mall I frequented in college used to greet me with my usual order from across the food court. But this version of a common take out item is healthier, delicious, and…

Mexican Street Corn

~~Mexican Street Corn~~ I love grilled corn on the cob in the summer. It’s basically a have to have for the season. But, it’s even better if you make it into Mexican street corn. It’s savory, creamy, and tangy. It’s a Mexican dream boat on a plate. Serve it with burgers, al pastor tacos, or…
