BBQ Pork Pizza with Spaghetti Squash Crust and Second Trimester Updates

Things have been going much, much better in the symptom, food and exercise department compared to how I felt throughout the first trimester. I’ve had a much healthier appetite and have been able to cook a lot more than I was in the beginning. I still have my indulgences but sticking to the Paleo or just a whole foods diet …

Bacon and Butternut Squash Egg Casserole

I am officially obsessed with any kind of egg bake. It’s just so easy to clean out my fridge and throw leftover cooked veggies and meat into a bowl with eggs and spices, bake in a casserole dish and call it good! The combo of sweet butternut squash and salty bacon is delicious. Add in sundried tomatoes and spinach for …

Paleo St. Patrick’s Day Recipes

Hey all! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far. We had a pretty dreary weekend here in Austin, but this week is starting to shape up a little better. SXSW is going on right now and I’m sure a lot of local Austinites are hoping for bad weather to deter more people from moving here! Since I’m …

Sweet Potato Hash Browns

I love crispy, salty hash browns for breakfast. Restaurant versions are delicious but they are probably not using the best oils and I hardly ever see sweet potato hashbrowns on a menu. Make these at home for a perfect weekend breakfast or brunch. Make extra to eat during the week. Joe and I haven’t had too much going on this …

Spicy Beef Tacos

What a week! We just got back from a trip to Omaha to see family and friends. We truly had a blast (despite the cold and the snow!) and wish we could’ve spent more time there. It is good to be back in Austin though where the weather is slowly heating back up into the 70’s. It’s also good to …

Potato Frittata

Prosciutto, Potato and Spinach Frittata

Frittatas are one of my favorite dishes to make. They are so easy and you can incorporate any meat, veggie or cheese (if you want). They are fairly quick to make, especially if you have the ingredients prepped. And they make for a great breakfast, lunch or dinner! I’ve posted a few frittata recipes here and here. This recipe was actually …

Baked Spaghetti and Meat Sauce

Hey all! It’s been quite a while since I posted an actual recipe so I decided to take a break from my “goal” posts and give you something tasty to munch on. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I started incorporating gluten-free grains from time to time into my diet. For this recipe I used quinoa pasta, but you could …

Leftover Turkey, Sweet Potato and Bacon Hash

I can’t believe Thanksgiving has already come and gone and we are only less than three weeks away from Christmas. It is going to fly by! We had an awesome Thanksgiving. I was pretty impressed with my own planning abilities and created a stress-free Thanksgiving day by cooking most of my dishes ahead of time. Dinner turned out great. We …
