Sweet Potato Truffle Fries (Hot Chips)

Sweet Potato Truffle Fries (Hot Chips)

When my husband was away in Ireland the first year before we joined him, I used to have a mom date with my cousin MacKenzie.  Sometimes other mom friends came as well, but after a bit she announced to my parents that I needed a […]

Cultured Kale & Beetroot Salad

Cultured Kale & Beetroot Salad

Well.  One of the saddest food losses I have had in the past year has been kale.  I know… “Kale! No kale! Woe is me!”  Seriously though… one of my favorite foods and life staples was massaged kale salad with tahini garlic dressing.  Gaaaahhhh… If […]

Kefir Cream Cheese (And Whey for Culturing)

Kefir Cream Cheese (And Whey for Culturing)

My son loves cream cheese.  When we were living in Ireland the kids were not allowed to go to school with peanut butter in their lunch, which is fair and common here as well, but it left me with a chink in my mom armor […]

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Hummus (Cultured, Keto, Vegan)

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Hummus (Cultured, Keto, Vegan)

Alright, my beauties.  As most of you know… cultured hummus is my thing, my jam, my baby.  I was strained to work within a particularly restrictive budget when we lived in Northern Ireland and frankly was overwhelmed and saddened by the lack of exciting food […]

Cultured Black Bean Dip (Vegan, Paleo Hacked)

Cultured Black Bean Dip (Vegan, Paleo Hacked)

This beauty is one I developed a few years back in Northern Ireland when I was struggling to get my kids to eat what I would call “good” food.  They would only eat black beans if they were somehow refried, cooked with a ham bone, […]

Cultured Green Olive Cauliflower Hummus (Keto, Vegan, AIP)

Hey my neighbors and friends.  It has been a while since I have posted a recipe.  That is in part because I have again begun to react to veggies, which is disheartening… but mostly because the state of our nation has been weighing heavily on […]

Cultured Cauliflower Fir Tip Hummus (Keto, Vegan)

Cultured Cauliflower Fir Tip Hummus (Keto, Vegan)

This cauliflower version of my fir tip hummus is one step further in the keto camp than my chickpea version.  I struggled with cauliflower hummus as a concept and found the flavor just too sulfuric until I realized it blended well with other elements to […]

Salade De Chou Rosé (Cultured Pink Continental Coleslaw)

Salade De Chou Rosé (Cultured Pink Continental Coleslaw)

My favorite way to do this coleslaw is as PINK Coleslaw. You can leave out the purple and red veggies and simply get a coleslaw, but this is prettier. Europeans are not inclined to dumping mayo in their cabbage and I found that although I […]

Cultured Beetroot Cauliflower Hummus

Cultured Beetroot Cauliflower Hummus

That’s a mouthful! But seriously it is a tasty mouthful. So… confession. I made this MONTHS ago but it was right about when I was becoming allergic to everything. It tasted so so good but then I couldn’t eat much. I’m about to give the […]

Preserved Lemons (Keto, Paleo, Cultured, Vegan, AIP)

Preserved Lemons (Keto, Paleo, Cultured, Vegan, AIP)

It has been a wee while since my last post. We have had a couple emergency room visits in the past week and a half and are adjusting to some new physical limitations. Adjusting to a Hashimoto’s life has been a challenge to say the […]
