So this weekend was rough. Well rough in the sports world. My alma mater is known as a basketball university but I still love football; however, watching my school play football is something of a painful experience. We were actually pretty good when I was in college but oh how the team has fallen. We suffered a particularly harsh defeat this weekend, but I am hoping we can squeak out a couple more wins this season. I refuse to be a fair-weather fan even if my team is just plain terrible. Any other college football fans? Who do you cheer for?
Other than watching my team’s demise I had an amazing weekend making food and eating a lot! With fall and football season, I find myself reminiscing about college. Many a weekend morning, I spent my time waiting in line at one of my town’s favorite brunch spots. One of my favorite dishes was a chickichanga, which was pretty much a chimichanga with chicken, chorizo, eggs and smothered in sauce. I’ve been craving one of these stuffed burritos and decided it would make an amazing breakfast skillet! This chimichanga breakfast skillet is slightly spicy and absolutely fulfilling.

While in Maine, I sampled some amazing food! From the lobster to the oysters, I was very impressed with the fresh cuisine. I’ve been a seafood skeptic for a while now. I don’t like anything too fishy. I pressed my... Continue reading →
One of the very first recipes on my blog was coconut crusted chicken tenders. I still love this recipe. It was one of my go-to recipes when I first started eating Paleo. Easy recipes were a lifesaver when making the... Continue reading →
I had the pleasure of hearing Sarah Ballantyne, aka The Paleo Mom, speak at Paleo FX earlier this year. Prior to her talk, I wasn’t super familiar with the autoimmune protocol (AIP). I learned so much about not only AIP,... Continue reading →
This weekend flew by! I’m suffering from a Game of Thrones hangover. I mentioned last week I just started watching. Well I am now ready for the fourth season. Oops! I don’t normally binge watch TV but I got sucked... Continue reading →
Summer produce is plentiful as ever. I love going to my farmers market and see loads of local vegetables and fruit. I still miss my LA market but my new one is definitely showing a lot of promise. Sadly it... Continue reading →
