Roasted cauliflower rice is definitely the best way to eat cauliflower rice. I know from experience.
For breakfast on our first day in Portland, Eric ordered a gorgeous bowl of yogurt and granola at the darling cafe at The Society Hotel. He loved it so much that he’s been eating a version of it at home nearly every day since. Being on a grain-free diet now, I set out to create a homemade grain-free granola recipe I could eat as well and here we are: Oat-free millet granola!
I am addicted to bread. Sadly, I have been gluten-free for more than 5 years, which means I’ve been missing out on delicious bread for a long time. But there’s good news because I’ve developed a fantastic paleo biscuits recipe and. it. is. so. good. These are even better than gluten-free breads, which I tend to enjoy, so I’m pretty smitten with these homemade fluffy, savory pillows of heaven (can you tell?). They’re also really easy to make and low ingredient to boot!
I always see recipes for homemade granola bars come through my Pinterest feed and I must admit I thought they seemed kind of fussy. But now that I’m on a fairly restrictive diet, I find it hard to find pre-made snacks that don’t contain ingredients I’m supposed to avoid. That’s where these awesome homemade granola bars come in, and they’re anything but fussy! They take about 5 minutes to throw together in a food processor, then refrigerate for 30 minutes or so and they’re ready to enjoy!
Three words: sweet potato salad. Crazy, right?! Like, is it cold mashed potatoes? Kind of. But in the best way and I swear you’ll love it.
Before you bypass this sweet potato salad recipe, hear me out. If you don’t like regular potato salad, you’re in luck! This side dish is completely different than what you’re probably imagining: no hard-boiled eggs or mayonnaise, which can both be a turnoff to some people. Instead, this fall-inspired side is basically mashed white sweet potatoes dotted with celery, red onion, dried cranberries and finished off with some fresh thyme leaves. Yes, you read that right: sweet potatoes! It’s an indescribable, tasty dish, so I hope you’ll try it yourself! Continue reading
I love a good egg bake, and since going gluten- and dairy-free frittatas are always my go-to. These mini frittatas are super fun to serve when you have guests, or to make ahead of time to heat up in the microwave throughout the week.
Egg dishes are so versatile because you can really add whatever you have on-hand. I love to make a giant batch of my signature roasted sweet potatoes to eat for breakfast during the week, so naturally I had some to throw into this recipe.
Picnics are my favorite. Sunrises are also at the top of my list of things that are rad. Eric and I try to do a special picnic at least a few times each summer (in fact he proposed to me after one of our picnics!), and we realized that in our nearly 8 years of being together, we had never seen a sunrise together. So we made it a sunrise picnic breakfast!
I’ve watched many a sunrise with my best friend, who happened to live just one neighborhood away from mine while we were growing up. We’d plan to get up early, bring coffee (it was mostly creamer, actually) and spend the first waking hours of the day together watching the sunrise and talking about life. For that reason, sunrises are extra special to me.
