Golden Milk Pudding / Jell-O (Gluten-free / Paleo / AIP-Friendly)

Good ole’ golden milk. It’s all over the Internet. I don’t mean to sound super cool or anything, buuuut I’ve been drinking golden milk for quite a few years now. Pre-popularity. It’s such a basic recipe that I never thought to even put it on the blog, but I recently came up with a new twist on the old classic. Golden. Milk. Pudding. As much as I love golden milk, I much prefer to eat something rather than drink something. I like substance. There’s also something really soothing about a pudding or a Jell-O. It brings me back to my childhood when…

Thanksgiving 2016 Recipe Roundup!

Thanksgiving is almost a week away! ….What?! Where has the time gone?! I know it’s cliche to say, but it’s so true. Whenever a holiday comes up, I dedicate extra time to Pinterest/blog stalking for festive recipes. Does anyone else think it’s weird that we associate specific foods and flavors with certain holidays? Like, who decided that? I mean, don’t get me wrong – I love it! I’ve only posted 8,000 pumpkin recipes this fall. Nonetheless, I still think it’s interesting. Thanksgiving is definitely one of my favorite holidays. How could it not be? It’s all about food, and we all know there’s nothing I…

Paleo Chai Banana Pumpkin Bread

Is it even fall without a pumpkin recipe? NOOOOOPE. There’s been a can of pumpkin sitting on my baking shelf for a few months now, staring at me, taunting me. I have been SO excited to hop into ALL THINGS pumpkin – which started with my most recent fall candle haul, if you didn’t see that extravaganza. The funny thing is, I didn’t even like pumpkin until about 2 years ago. Yup, I went most of my life without ever even trying a pumpkin pie. It just did not sound good to young, inexperienced Christina. Was anyone else late to the pumpkin game? Thank…

How to Create a Balanced Meal

We’ve talked kitchen accessories. We’ve talked cooking routines. Now it’s time to talk about actually BUILDING YO’ PLATE. It’s great if you can drag your butt to the store, get yourself into a cooking routine, and cook the food, but how do you actually put it all together? I think this is a question a lot of people have when they first start cooking for themselves, but no one really wants to ask it. I wouldn’t recommend cooking 8 pieces of chicken and then eating all of those for dinner. I also wouldn’t recommend cooking three heads of broccoli and just eating…

Shrimp Zoodles with V/GF Walnut Alfredo Sauce

GUYS. I’m so excited about this recipe, I can’t even handle it. I’m honestly really surprised about how in love I am with a lunch/dinner recipe. Let me back up. Usually I spend all of my time toying with dessert recipes because I’m obsessed with desserts, and I feel like the creative possibilities are endless. I loooove to healthify my favorite sweet treats, and it’s SO satisfying when it comes out right. My main meals of the day aren’t usually very exciting in my opinion because I tend to stick to the same types of meals week after week. I love ’em, so I never…
