Salmon Dill cakes

Some of you know about the hubs’ distaste for the sea-going critters and my absolute love for them. So, when it’s time for me to get my fix of salmon, shrimp and… well… anything from the sea, I have to be very creative. The salmon dill cakes came out of this desperation of not only […]

Spicy Pumpkin Chili

I have committed the recipe crime of all recipe crimes! I did not write down my steps to making the spicy pumpkin chili… so here, on the blog… I will attempt to recreate the recipe. So it all started with the chili cook off last weekend. You know, the one in Southend… WHAT!?! You didn’t […]

Dry Rub Tri Tip Roast

Browsing the farmer’s market this weekend I ran across some yummy little poblano peppers. At first, I didn’t know they were poblanos… the small size and red color threw me off. The farmer saw me checking them out and said, “those will set you on fire, these over here are a little sweeter”. Well, that […]

Happy Halloween!!

We have been busy little bees in the modpaleo kitchen. This week is our test run for the pre-made paleo meals program for UCF. I am equal parts excited and nervous. There’s something about putting your cooking out there for others to judge. It’s scary! But, I have a wonderful group of friends and family […]

Halloween is coming and some new developments with crispy chicken!

I am super excited about Halloween this year. Which is weird, because I am not usually a huge Halloween fan.

Fall is in the air and in the kitchen!

I left the gym yesterday afternoon and the wind was beginning to pick up – you can tell the weather is working toward a change. This makes me both happy and sad. I love fall foods – but I HATE WINTER. I’ll admit it. I am the BIGGEST baby when it comes to the cold. […]

Chicken Tomatillo Chili

I am typically a beef girl. Chicken, well, usually just kinda skeeves me out. But recently, I have been wanting to mix it up a bit and chicken has served that need well. Last night, the hubs was to be gone for a softball game with pizza and beer to follow. Well hellz yeah! I’ll just cook […]

Heeeey – o

I was reminded this week of a few things. 1) Life is both fragile and resilient. 2) I am an extremely LUCKY girl. 3) Don’t take things for granted. Amongst other things that brought on this atypical post, my 32-year-old cousin passed away on Sunday. From a heart attack. A heart attack. At 32. Her father, my Mom’s […]

Unique greens

What a great Saturday at the farmer’s market! I have been rushing through the farmer’s market lately – if, I’ve even been in town to go on Saturday. This Saturday though… it was a leisurely stroll through the booths! I had breakfast at the Roots Truck; coffee at Monk’s Groovy Beans and topped it off with a lesson […]
