TumblrEmailOther Share Options

Has there ever been a more winning combination than steak and potatoes? Not to my way of thinking. It just works. For my take on this classic combo, I boil the potatoes first to get the insides soft and creamy and then bake them to get the outsides nice and crispy. This side is so […]

Fennel & Coconut Mussels

Fennel & Coconut Mussels

I think I can speak for all Fijians when I say that we love our coconut milk. Growing up, one of my jobs was scraping the coconuts to squeeze out fresh coconut milk. There is nothing in the world like fresh squeezed coconut milk. But in the states, we use canned which is good, but […]

Granola by Living Luxe Gluten Free

Granola by Living Luxe Gluten Free

Even on hectic days, I still try to eat right. It’s on those crazy days when I couldn’t survive without my granola recipe. Featuring rolled oats, coconut oil, chia seeds, and Himalayan superfruit goji berries, it’s great for making during the weekend to be used as a weekday breakfast or a snack on the go. […]

Lemon Rosemary Pound Cake

Lemon Rosemary Pound Cake

In my mind, lemon and rosemary are best friends. I love pairing them together in savory dishes and even cocktails—lemon rosemary French 75, yes please! But I have never thought of making them into a sweet treat until yesterday. I had all these ideas, yet I was craving something I’d want to eat with vanilla […]

Indian Jalfrezi Chicken

Indian Jalfrezi Chicken

Indian Jalfrezi Chicken —Gluten free & lactose free; may be prepared vegan and vegetarian   It’s hard not to love chicken tikka masala. Unfortunately, since masala sauce generally is made with yogurt and cream, finding love in a lactose-free version takes more work than simply ordering takeout. My recipe for at-home Indian relies on lactose-free […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Cream Pie

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Cream Pie

I made this pie last week because for some reason my boyfriend and I have been on a pie kick. We have made a new pie or dessert pretty much every week and we stuff our faces with it—and sometimes (rarely) we share. This pie was shared and a hit amongst friends and family. And […]

Pretty, Powerful, Pasta

Pretty, Powerful, Pasta

Pretty, Powerful, Pasta Recipe from Living Luxe Gluten Free by Michelle Lee This recipe came together when my pantry and fridge were bare. Unable to get to the store, I was limited to tomatoes, broccoli, and Trader Joe’s quinoa fusilli pasta. I combined them all then added garlic, olive oil, and anchovies to the mix. […]

Chicken Soup for All That Ails You

Chicken Soup for All That Ails You

Chicken soup is the ultimate aid in warming you up after a day out and about. It is so simple and full of good minerals and nutrients (especially if you’ve roasted a chicken and made some broth the day before) and depending on how much chili you put it, I swear it’ll knock a cold […]

Chorizo, Mushroom & Potato Tacos

Chorizo, Mushroom & Potato Tacos

Every “Taco Tuesday” on Instagram I find myself drooling over people eating tacos and I don’t know why I’m not eating tacos for dinner. I get serious taco envy. So this week I joined the masses and made these delicious tacos. Like seriously delicious tacos. They are spicy and sweet and salty—everything a good taco […]

Chunky Clam Chowder

Chunky Clam Chowder

Clam chowder has always been a favorite of mine. Even as a child when I ate around the clams and only ate the potatoes—it was still my second favorite soup (after my grandmothers cream of asparagus). This clam chowder has a lot going on—I like to add a bunch of vegetables and bacon to add […]
