Chili-Lime Wings

WINGS! I get excited when I remember they’re a dinner option. Too often I forget, unless I’m thinking of what to make for the Super Bowl or some other big sportsing day. But why should we only eat them when there are really good commercials on TV? That’s silly. They’re cheap and delicious, and there are practically endless ways to prepare them. Take this preparation, for example; They get crispy in the oven thanks to a blend that includes salt and tapioca starch, and then tossed in a super flavorful sauce that gets mixed together in about 45 seconds.

Crispy Chicken Thighs with Spicy Peaches

When I run into the store unsure of what to make for dinner, seven times out of 10 I’ll grab some bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs.

This is not a stir-fry; you don’t want to mess with it. If you try to turn the chicken too soon, you’ll wind up...

Strawberry Margaritas, 2 Ways

If summertime isn’t made for sippin’ margaritas, I don’t know what is. And since summer is also made for snacking on fresh fruit, it only makes sense to combine the two. I love strawberry margaritas either infused with fresh basil, or heated up with jalapeño. Since I can’t decide which I love more, I’m sharing both recipes with you today! Strawberry Margaritas, 2 Ways Strawberry Basil Margarita for one drink: 1 sprig basil (about 5 leaves) 3 strawberries 1.5 ounces (1 jigger) lime juice 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1.5 ounces (1 jigger) tequila, either gold or...

The Autoimmune Wellness Bundle

I am so excited to share this amazing deal with you! I really try to limit how many products I sell, and only get involved with these things when I truly stand behind them and think they’re truly valuable. This is one of those situations- I even contributed some of my favorite recipes to the Best Of ebook that’s included in this sale! If you follow my blog or have my cookbook, you know that I’m notoriously bad at writing recipes that are compliant with the Autoimmune Protocol.  Not because I don’t think it’s an excellent tool for people to heal themselves with...
