Zucchini noodles with chicken and tomatoes in a lemon garlic sauce

I am just loving my spiralizer attachment from KitchenAid and it's been super busy in my kitchen!  If you don't the kitchenAid attachment there are other ways to spiralize including using a vegetable peeler.

This recipe was inspired by left overs!  I love roasting 2 chickens at once and serving for dinner one night then cutting the rest up and using for several different meals.  I freeze what I won't use in the next 2 days.  I also keep a little packed away for Jake! Love my doggie...

Asian beef with vegetables and herbs

This is an amazing one-pot recipe.  I served over riced cauliflower but jasmine rice or roasted vegetables would be great too!

Note:  I love green onions and hate when they wilt in the refrigerator so I used the entire bunch.  

Enjoy Cindy xo

 

Baby Kale and Mixed Green salad with Shrimp

I love using baby spinach for the delicate salad. The perfect dish for a break in the middle of the day!

BGE Pork Shoulder (pulled pork)

My husband and I love serving pulled pork over the summer.  It's easy to prepare in advance and keep warm while we are enjoying time on the lake with friends and family.  

We love our Big Green Egg and we know this was the best pulled pork because there was not one single piece left over.  

I have a few ways that I make my pulled pork such as my 5 ingredient pulled pork or Italian pulled pork that I prepare in the slow cooker.  

Since my spice rack is filled with Simply Organics we decided to do a dry rub and let it sit overnight.  

Give this recipe a try and even my vinegar based barbecue sauce that goes perfect with my vinegar cole slaw.

Enjoy

Cindy's Note:  Get a spray bottle and add about 1 cup of apple juice.

Braised Tuscan Pork Chops

This recipe has been a favorite for TV cooking segments when I share recipes from my new cookbook Paleo Italian Cooking!  Get your copy and check out the other healthy Italian recipes!

In Tuscan and Spanish cooking you will see the word sofrito in many recipes. Sofrito is the combination of tomatoes, onions, peppers, carrots, garlic and fresh herbs to create a sauce. I use a sofrito in many of my recipes and is a perfect way to enjoy this dish.

You can use some of the sauce and use over zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash. I love to grill vegetables and top with this sofrito.

Cauliflower Cakes with a Fresh Herb Pesto

OK big news today!  When I was visiting my friend Teal at Sons and Daughter farm and winery I learned a few things.  First I had an amazing wine sampling then of course I went for my 2 jugs of kombucha.  While I was there her and David took me on a little tour and my takeaway was Yucca Root.  OMG...

Teal brought my a tasting of tapioca pudding their chef made from yucca root and it was the best I ever had.  I just love the texture of tapioca pudding and it was to die for!  Really.....

She also told me that the yucca root made a great thickening agent and also how you make cassava flour.

While I am doing our HewFit Challenge at our gym and the "game" excludes any flours even (almond, coconut, tapioca, etc) so I grabbed a yucca root to make Cauliflower cakes.  

Enjoy!
