Fried Bananas (a dessert-free dessert)

Wow, it’s been forever since I’ve done a post! Life is crazy as usual, although not quite as crazy as NC weather. (It was 61 degrees yesterday, and now it’s snowing. You tell me how that makes sense.)

Anyways, I wanted to share this recipe with you! As usual, the term ‘recipe’ is used loosely here. I don’t usually eat ‘desserts,’ even ‘paleo’ desserts, because I don’t do well with excessive amounts of nut flour or sweetener, even if it’s honey or coconut sugar. I call this recipe a ‘dessert-free dessert’ because it feels like you’re eating this:

Bananas Foster

…when you’re really eating this:

At least, that’s how I like to see it.

Coriander-Balsamic Glazed Carrots

Fish and Carrots

These carrots are amazing. And easy. And that’s a terrible picture of them, but you should try them anyways! I ate them with some fish (talbot, to be exact), which was also delicious. Read on for the recipe!

Pizza Chili (hidden liver!)

This is the first recipe I’ve made where I’ve successfully incorporated liver without being able to taste it! This Pizza Chilirecipe is based on Food Renegade’s recipe, and the picture to the right is from her post because I forgot to take a picture (Again. Whoops.). I wasn’t actually planning to post this recipe, but my dad tried it and was gushing about how amazing it was, and he told me to put it on here. So here it is! This is a low-FODMAP recipe, and is delicious as is, but if you can tolerate FODMAPs I would add some onion and garlic. I added gelatin to this recipe as well, but you can leave it out if you want. It’s just to add extra nutrition! And don’t be alarmed by the long list of ingredients; it’s all just spices, and it’s actually a really easy recipe (:

Strawberry Pulled Pork

I’ve made this recipe more times than I can count because it’s so delicious and easy, so I actually have this one Strawberry Pulled Porkperfected! My recipe is a modification of Technically Paleo’s recipe, and because I only have a terrible picture of my finished recipe, the picture to the right is from his post. He did this a little differently than I do, because he uses and crock pot and then makes the sauce separately. I do mine in the oven, and just throw everything in the same pot; the sauce sort of creates itself that way! This is a low-FODMAP recipe, although before going low-FODMAP I added garlic powder to this. If you are not low FODMAP, definitely add a teaspoon or two of garlic powder to this recipe! It’s still great without it though (:

Chicken Soup

It feels strange to make chicken soup without onions and garlic, but this low-FODMAP chicken soup is Chicken Soupdelicious! It’s actually one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast. You can make chicken soup a lot of different ways (obviously), but this time I chose to make it using a leftover roast chicken. I like roasting chickens in the oven to get the skin nice and crispy, and I eat all of the delicious pieces like the wings and back fresh out of the oven. But after it’s cooled off, the skin just doesn’t look as appetizing, and at that point the roast chicken is a prime candidate for soup! I also added powdered gelatin to the soup, because although the broth will already have a lot of gelatin from simmering for hours, I’m experimenting with adding additional gelatin to my diet for skin and hair health.

Herbed Pork Shoulder

So, the pork shoulder I talked about yesterday is kind of amazing! Especially considering how drop-dead simple it is. And I remembered to take a picture of it before I put it inHerbed Pork Shoulder the oven! But I forgot to take a picture after taking it out of the oven. Bummer. So you’ll just have to buy yourself a pork shoulder and see what it looks like for yourself! I’ll tell you what I did, and then what tweaks I would recommend to make it even better.

[Edit: I made this again and took my own suggestions (below), and it turned out great! So this is a legitimate recipe now, and not just me sharing my kitchen trials with you. But I decided to keep the original post too so you can see the (very short) evolution of the recipe. But I still forgot to take a picture of the finished product.]

Yellow Beef and Rice

This is my first recipe on the blog! I’m not sure it’s spectacular enough to satisfactorily fill such an honorable position, but I Yellow Beef and Ricethought it tasted pretty good. Plus, I created it myself, and usually that ends in disaster. And I even took a picture! And used a garnish! You know it’s a big day when I try to make my food look less ugly.

And in case you’re wondering, it’s called ‘Yellow’ Beef and Rice because the turmeric makes the oil highlighter-colored. The steps are probably a lot longer than they needed to be, because it’s a dead-simple recipe. If you can even call it a recipe. I’m actually kind of embarrassed to post this because it’s so simple, but I’m going to anyways!
