Paleo. Whole 30. Caveman. Crazy. These are words that come to mind when I hear about these new diet plans.

Yeah, I said it.

It isn’t because I don’t think they work, because they do. It’s because as a vegetarian that only on occasion partakes in bacon and chorizo, I couldn’t follow any of these plans daily and stay healthy and sane.

I am going to start this post off by saying that I love pupusas. I love them because I found out that when it is made right, I really LOVE curtido. Curtido is a marinated slaw enjoyed throughout Latin America, though I have come to have a great affinity and lust over that of El Salvador. It is tangy, zesty, crunchy and delicious, which is why they are the base for these delicious wraps! (more…)

I am not a morning person by any means. I love to let my body wake itself up, which is usually around 11AM. Thanks to my freelance life and my wonderful husband and dog, they all let me sleep in every day. However, breakfast to me is an all day affair which is why pancakes are so near and dear to my heart. This batch of Cranberry Walnut Pancakes has the flavor of the holidays packed into every bite! (more…)

Firstly, because like I said FGF needs some love. Also because I am reworking book 1 of my trilogy, Cosmic Legends, and FGF is the perfect way for me to get a breather. Also also, this rice bowl is delicious with or without the pernil! (more…)
