Smoky Kabocha “Cheese” Spread (AIP, SCD)

The best things in life often happen when you are looking for something else entirely… and this smoky “cheese” spread made from kabocha squash, bacon, and a few other key ingredients is a deliciously great example of that! Believe it or not, I was actually going for

Sweet & Sour Chicken Wings (AIP)

Carob syrup is the secret ingredient to these sticky sweet and sour chicken wings. Wings like these are an easy concept, but a challenge to execute at home without a deep fryer and an even bigger challenge if you are operating within the confines of a soy-free
