Flourless Chocolate Cake

This Flourless Chocolate Cake has been in the works in the Pastured Test Kitchen for quite some time now. It started back several years ago when at my cousin’s birthday party in LA, she served this delicious flourless cake!  Then there was another LA family get-together, and that cake was served again!

Traditional Beef Pho

BeefPho-2

It’s no secret that for the last 10 months or so I’ve been living up in Vancouver, BC for visual effects work.  It really is a beautiful place right on the foothills of the mountains to the North and at the same time right on the ocean to the West.  Alton Brown considers Vancouver to…

Reuben Sandwiches with Irish Soda Bread

Reuben-5

I love Reuben sandwiches. There’s just something about thinly sliced corned beef, thousand island dressing, and sauerkraut. It really is one of those perfect sandwiches. With St Paddy’s Day coming up around the corner I figured I would try my hand at making a paleo version. As an extra challenge, I decided to make my…

Every Last Crumb_Cvr

Last Fall, life was a bit crazy. Sean had already been in Vancouver since July and had been extended on his job into 2015. Long story short, with that news we decided to move out of LA, and figure out our next plans – which for now means I moved to Alabama to be with…
