Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Brussels Sprouts and Pecans with Balsamic Drizzle

Roasted Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes

I. Love. Brussels Sprouts. And did you know it’s properly spelled Brussels? Not brussel or brussels. I always was unsure if I was spelling it correctly, and a dip into the Google pool turns up info that they were predominately grown in Brussels, Belgium. Now I know (and knowing is half the battle)! Anyway, I…

Crab Cake Deviled Eggs

Crab Cake Deviled Eggs-2

January is halfway over and Suz and I are on day 12 of our Whole30. We’ve completed one or two in the past but I must say, this time, it’s been much easier. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s the new year and maybe it’s that we’ve completed the challenge before. But I honestly think…

Spicy Venison Chili

Venison Chili-4

First and foremost, Happy New Year! It has been seriously crazy leading up to the new year for us. From the big move out of Los Angeles to me (Sean) having to work all kinds of crazy hours to finish out the year in Vancouver. After all the months of non stop action, I was…

Eggnog Gummies


Holy moly, Christmas is already next week! It’s been such a busy holiday season for Suz and I, with the two roadtrips and the big move out of Los Angeles (me up to Vancouver and Suz home to Alabama for a bit), that we haven’t had a chance to get many recipes out lately. During…

Wow. I can’t believe how fast Thanksgiving came along this year. And that’s saying something since up here in Canada, Thanksgiving happens at the beginning of October. You’d think that I would have had enough warning right? This is a recipe/food project I’ve wanted to tackle since Suz and I saw Michael Symon make it…

Thanksgiving Meatloaf Muffins with Cranberry Ketchup & Cauliflower Mash


A few weeks ago, I made some mini-meatloaf muffins “frosted” with mashed potatoes for my weekly girls night (in which we watch Dancing with the Stars – don’t hate. Team Alfonso btw). Needless to say, they were a huge hit! I had used dark turkey meat but made it more of a traditional Italian meatloaf….

Fish Oil for Epilepsy and Neurological Function


Back in November I wrote quite a lengthy post about my success at convincing my neurology team to allow me to come off some if not all of my medications. As of now, it’s been 11 months since I started tapering off one of the two medications I’ve taken for epilepsy. It’s been a long…

Review ~ Paleo By Season | Chocolate Pumpkin Pie


We first met Pete & Sarah Servold at a Balanced Bites seminar in our old gym back in early 2013. Diane had brought them up to cater the event, and Sean and I immediately hit it off with the Pete’s Paleo team. One bite of the bacon, and you’re in love. Pete’s background as a…

Grilled Maple Dijon Pork Tenderloin

Maple Dijon Pork Tenderloin-4

A few months back, we were introduced to the monocled master condiment, Sir Kensingtons by our friend Juli of PaleOMG.  She had been posting about the mayo for a little while and just couldn’t stop  raving about it.  The fact that it is all clean ingredients is a huge win, but it also tastes absolutely…
