I love apple pie, I mean who doesn’t. It is a classic, a staple, a tradition. But sometimes it can get… boring. Fear not, this recipe gives you the apple you love with a twist. Introducing chayote, a squash that has a sweet and tart taste similar to a green apple making it the perfect addition to this pie. Cinnamon Chayote and Granny Smith Apple Pie = oh so heavenly, and oh so good. (more…)

It has been an awesome last few months. I have been working on the book for a while and though I love developing recipes I feel like what I really want to do for the rest of my life is cook in the kitchen for fun and write for work instead of the other way around. However, my time in the kitchen is sacred to me because it makes me focus, letting anything else that is troubling me (like where to enter a scene in my book) just fall away.

You all know I love making sweets and treats, but a simple, healthy recipe with wholesome ingredients is always best. This Roasted Veggie Gazpacho fits the bill, and then some. (more…)

Hello all! I know it has been a while. I have been a busy bee working on some new projects and old ones too. The book is well on its way. Trying to make it perfect and now onto revisions so that’s great.

On the food side, I have been churning out recipes like a mad woman. I spend hours a day in the kitchen, then an hour or so cleaning it, and before I know it I have to go to the gym, have dinner, shower and get to bed before the next day. But fear not, for I come bearing some gifts in the form of delicious recipes. Take this one, a CLT with Spicy Avocado Spread where C stands for delectable and fresh smoked chorizo. (more…)

You all know my obsession with coconut oil. That obsession has further extended into anything coconut (natural only, of course.) I have been on the coconut milk band wagon for some time now, at times changing it up with almond milk and cashew (don’t tell!) but I always make my way back to my tropical and creamy coconut milk. This Pan Seared Coconut Oatmeal is made with coconut milk and mixed berries, then pan fried in coconut oil for a crisp crust and gooey center.

Oh yeah, welcome this baby with open arms because it is delicious! (more…)
