Indian Butter Chicken (Paleo)

Indian food is one of my all time favorite foods to enjoy. And perhaps because there’s so few Indian restaurants where I live, i’ve spent hours looking for homemade recipes and playing with spices in my own kitchen. One popular dish I see a lot is butter chicken, which I’ve had at restaurants and absolutely…

These cookies probably look familiar; they were a staple cookie for many households when I was growing up. Easy and fun to make, and who doesn’t love peanut butter?

Dark Chocolate Walnut Brownies (Grain Free)

Brownies have always been one of my favorite desserts. To me, the proper brownie is a soft, but dense square of chocolaty goodness with the crunch of walnuts in every bite. Think about those brownies we used to get in our lunch boxes from Little Debbie; those were prime when I was a kid. These…

Creamy Mushrooms (Dairy Free)

Creamed Mushrooms are one of my favorite side dishes to make, because it’s so quick and yummy. Not to mention healthy. This dish packs so much flavor in every bite I can hardly stand not to eat the whole pan by myself! I’ve made this dish dairy free through the use of canned full fat…
