Shredded Red Cabbage & Apple Hash


Can I just start off by saying that I’m starting to get a bit anxious about what this winter has in store for us! Every time I talk to someone here and the topic turns to the weather they tell me to brace myself because this winter is going to be bad! I heard last winter in Michigan was a record breaker and it was one of the worst winters they’ve had in YEARS so I was kind of secretly hoping that this year we wouldn’t be hit so hard. I’m just not mentally prepared for the snow right now and doing things like driving in the snow! Don’t get me wrong I do like snow, mostly I’m inside and looking out at it ;) but day to day life getting around can be tricky and I haven’t even experienced a full on winter here. [Read more...]

Roasted Delicata Squash with Brown Butter Sage Sauce


Happy Monday! This week we are getting ready to move once AGAIN! It’s hard to believe that we have been back in the States for over 2 months already and while we never had the intention of moving again once we got here, as I shared in a previous post issues with our current rental property sort of forced the issue! We were actually supposed to move out at the start of October but things came up so we had to push the date of our move back. Our shipping boxes arrived nearly 3 weeks ago now I think and have just been sitting in our living room unpacked, so I really can’t wait to move into the new place and unpack everything and live normally again!

Baked Apple Sage Chicken Meatballs


Meatballs are a go to in our house! They are so easy and versatile to make that we probably have them a couple of times a week. Plus it’s also easy to make a big batch of them and have them on hand for those busier times. I almost always bake my meatballs, mostly because it reduces the hands on time that I have to be in the kitchen, I just let the oven do all the work. As you may know I was recently sent some different paleo friendly flours from the folks over at Anti-Grain Flours  and I have been experimenting in the kitchen with them. My most recent experiment was this one using the apple flour, for ‘Baked Apple Sage Chicken Meatballs‘. Since apple season is upon us I wanted to highlight it in this recipe and I think apple & sage work so well together… plus sage is probably my favourite herb so any chance I get to use it I will.

Grain-Free Delicata Squash Crostata


If you follow me over on my Facebook Page you may have seen me share the photo above as a teaser recipe recently. Well now it’s time to share the recipe for this delicious and simple to make ‘Grain-Free Delicata Squash Crostata’ with you! I absolutely LOVE this time of year in Michigan, yes the weather starts to cool down a lot but when it comes to food and the changing of the leaves… those things are my favourite part of Autumn/Fall! I still get so excited when I see all the pumpkin and squash varieties available at this time of year, growing up in Australia we didn’t have those kinds of scenes with shop fronts or grocery stores displaying all those gorgeous pumpkins and squash and it wasn’t like that in the UK either. So as you can imagine being back here and getting to see all these things again makes me so happy! [Read more...]
