    CRISPY ROASTED CAULIFLOWER

    CRISPY ROASTED CAULIFLOWER

    I count myself fortunate that I grew up with two good cooks for parents. Not only did they know their way around the kitchen, but I credit them for my love of virtually all foods. I always loved my veggies growing up, unlike most kids my age, and it was hard for me to wrap my head around anyone that didn’t appreciate broccoli. My maternal grandmother was always the greatest cook in the family, and I think her influence trickled down to the rest of us for a love of great family cooking.

    AMAZING PALEO QUICHE

    AMAZING PALEO QUICHE

    While the recipe for a classic quiche is full of cream, butter and cheese, this amazing paleo version is gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar free but equally amazing in flavor and texture! In fact, you wouldn’t even know it was healthy if I didn’t tell you ;) don’t believe me? You’ll just have to try this recipe out for yourself to find out!

    Quiche is one of those comfort foods that has a way of always “hitting the spot”.

    CRISPY PARMESAN PORK CHOPS

    CRISPY PARMESAN PORK CHOPS

    Other than my RESTAURANT-QUALITY BBQ RIBS (recipe for which can also be found on my Vocal posts), I have to admit - pork is one protein I never had much confidence cooking.
