3-Ingredient Banana Ice Cream

Bananas are one of my favorite fruits because they’re so sweet and versatile!  You can throw them in so many things to sweeten recipes.  I love banana bread, muffins, pancakes, bananas in my cereal, in my oatmeal, in ice cream, you name it!  If there is a store that serves banana ice cream, you better…

Paleo/Whole30 BBQ Sauce & Rub

This barbeque sauce was a huge hit with my family!  My daughter and husband loved it.  I was looking to use my Instant Pot the other day and I wanted something easy and not hard to throw together… this BBQ sauce was perfect!  I threw some chicken thighs in the Instant Pot and smothered them…

How do I get started?

Are you wanting to lose some weight or finally get serious about your eating habits but you have NO idea where to start?  I feel you there…  When I hit one of my lowest points in my life, my eating habits were out of control, my anxiety was at an all time high, I felt…

Roasted Tomato & Basil Soup – Paleo/Whole30

Now that tax season is over for me, the first thing my family did was take a vacation!  I’m not allowed to take any vacation from January through tax date, which was April 17th this year.  My family took a vacation to Vero Beach to see my in-laws and spend some time with Dan’s cousin…

Tax Season is Over!

*Takes a long, deep breath and lets it out slowly…*  I am finally done with tax season!  I believe most of you know that I am an accountant but just in case you didn’t… I’m an accountant so January-April is my busiest time of the year.  I spend about 12-14 weeks in overtime trying to…

Spanish Cauliflower Rice

To be honest, this isn’t a super ground-breaking recipe – LOL!  I was just CRAVING some Spanish rice recently and tried making it with riced cauliflower since I don’t eat regular rice now.  This is one of the foods that I gave up after doing my first Whole30.  Especially white rice since it really doesn’t…

Resolution: Half Marathon – Check!

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted – Gotta love how busy life can get sometimes!  Before I knew it, it was tax season again and my workload instantly went way up.  I’m working overtime plus balancing family life, church activities, blogging, etc. Talk about having to spend quite a bit of time organizing…

Paleo Buffalo Chicken Dip

It is NOT the Super Bowl if buffalo chicken dip is not made… It’s just not because that would be Un-American! I pretty much love anything that is caked in buffalo sauce.  Buffalo sauce on wings, on a burger, on chicken, you name it. I’ve made buffalo dip every year for the Super Bowl that…

Homemade Ranch Seasoning

I don’t know about you but one of my favorite dips is ranch dip.  Who doesn’t love ranch?  I used to LOVE to get some sour cream and add a Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning package to it and go to town on that dip with some chips or veggies.  It’s making me hungry just writing…

Sautéed Spinach and Peppers w/Garlic & Shallots

For some odd reason, I’ve been in the mood for sautéed spinach lately.  I honestly have no idea where that craving came from!  Maybe because I love spinach on a fresh salad… Who knows!  I noticed I had some bell peppers in my refrigerator last night along with some spinach and figured I’d try my…

Tuna Salad w/Mustard Vinaigrette

This is one of the most flavorful and healthy lunches I’ve made recently.  I cannot express in words how yummy this meal is!  Bonus… it’s also quick and easy to make! I typically use Albacore canned tuna from Costco but you can get at any grocery store.  I like Albacore best because it’s not as…
