Cobb Salad (AIP, SCD)

I made this gorgeous AIP-friendly version of a Cobb salad as part of our “around-the-world” culinary adventures in 2020. I’ve learned so much during this year long project about things that I had never even thought about before. For example, I never knew that “baked beans” are

Cranberry Apple Bacon Stuffed Acorn Squash (SCD, AIP)

Stuffed acorn squash makes for an appealing presentation, especially on a holiday table, and jazzes up what is otherwise often a pretty bland vegetable. Yes, I’ll admit it. While I generally love winter squash, acorn squash has never been one of my favorites… except when used as

Bacon Wrapped Scallops with Basil Sauce (AIP, SCD)

A recipe like this one for an AIP-compliant BBQ pork will help your weekly meal planning and prepping. Just let it cook under pressure while you ignore it. A four pound cut of meat will easily yield 8 or more servings, so you can serve a crowd

Garlic Shrimp Zucchini Boats (AIP, SCD)

I had so much fun plating these garlic shrimp zucchini boats for the pictures, and couldn’t resist the urge to stand the basil leaves up like sails on a sailboat. Of course, the nautical theme continues with the simple fact that the main ingredient is from the

Easy Broiled Asparagus (AIP, SCD)

I try not to play favorites when it comes to vegetables and preparation methods, but if did I would be putting this broiled asparagus really high on that list! This easy recipe is the best of all worlds because it is fast and virtually fuss free, delicious

Easy Roast Lamb (AIP, SCD)

I’m tickled pink at how perfectly delicious this flavorful and ultra-easy roast lamb came together! It utilizes boneless leg of lamb, a cut that is usually accessible in mainstream grocery stores, provides the flavor of a stuffed roast, but with none of the fuss, and is ready
