Wow, I cannot believe it's been so long since I've blogged. I'm finally back though. I've had a little hiccup with my health and needed to modify my eating due to a rare liver disease I was diagnosed with. Rather than let this disease get the best of me, I've decided to kick this disease in the butt! I'm fighting this everyday and I'm praying and hoping with this drastic change that in 6 months the doctors will see a major change with my health.
Eating healthy isn't what it's all about, exercise is needed with proper nutrition. Tomorrow will be my first day back at the gym since I've gotten sick. I am fighting this every step of the way... I know I can do this. Never giving up!
So with this new change in my nutrition plan, I'm doing a high fiber plant based plan. Meat will definitely be hard to give up but my health and family is my number 1 priority.
This was an AMAZING paleo dish I made and wow! I'm hooked. I tried doing a lemon cauliflower rice in the past and I wasn't too pleased with it, but this was is so good and I'm definitely going to make this again!!!!
4 cups riced cauliflower, loosely packed (don’t cook it, rice it raw!)
2 Tbsp coconut oil
1 shallot or small onion, diced (I used a large shallot)
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 carrot, diced
1 celery stalk, diced
1/4 cup peas (optional)
3 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce or liquid aminos (I used liquid aminos — if you use soy sauce, start with less and taste before adding the whole amount)
6 egg whites and 2 yolks, beaten
To rice cauliflower: Process fresh cauliflower until it is the size of rice, either using the plain steel blade or the shredder blade. Alternatively, you can shred it with a hand-held grater, or even use a knife, if you have the dexterity to chop it up VERY finely.
Scramble eggs and set aside.
In a skillet on medium heat, heat the coconut oil, then add carrot and onion/shallot (not the green onion) and saute for a couple minutes. Add the cauliflower to the skillet, stir and add liquid aminos or soy sauce. Saute until softened (this took mine about 10 minutes, but it will depend on the size of your cauli rice and the heat–just taste test!).
Next, make a well in the center of pan and add eggs. Cover pan until eggs are cooked through, stirring eggs frequently. Add peas, taste the mixture, and add a bit more liquid aminos or soy sauce if you like
Serve hot. You can add chicken, shrimp or anything you want. If you add too many veggies besides the cauli, celery, carrots, and peas, it’ll lose it’s “fried rice” feeling.

This dish right here is truly one of my specialties. I love making this dish. If it’s for Jacks Birthday, Valentine’s Day, or just because we want something fancy. Usually I just do the Filet with shrimp or lobster and topped with holandaise and asparagus, but this Valentine’s Day I decided to elevate my recipe a little more and try something new and this is what I came up with. I hope you all enjoy and if you have someone special, try it! Steak Oscar for Two Ingredients: For the Steak: 2 Filet Mignon Steaks 1 tbs . Himalayan Salt 3 tbs . fresh cracked black pepper 2 tbs . avocado oil For the Hollandaise: 2 egg yolks 1 stick butter Juice of 1 lemon Salt and pepper to taste Dash of fresh tarragon minced For the Crab Cakes: 1 Dungeness crab shelled, and cartilage removed 1 tbs . fresh lemon juice 1 egg 1 tsp. himilayan salt 1 ½ tsp . cracked black pepper 1 tbs. fresh parsley, finely minced ½ cup fresh grated parmesa
After years of cooking and sharing recipes, I have finally put together my blog site. Its been a long journey in cooking for friends and family. It wasn't until recently that I was given the confidence to actually create a blog and share everything I have learned and am still learning in the kitchen. I recently was given the opportunity to air on live tv with Good Day Sacramento. It was quite the experience. Friends and family told me I was a natural on tv, but what they didn't see on tv was how extremely nervous me. My mom and my husband were there calming me down. After each take, I would let out a big "Whew" and ask how I did. Apparently my nervousness did not show when the camera was rolling. Thank Goodness! I would like to share the recipe of my dish on Good Day Sacramento with all of you. Spaghetti Squash is that ingredient that we all seem to forget about. It's amazing and very good for you to eat. I think when people look at a spaghetti squash,
Motherhood. Where do I even begin. It is both beautiful, challenging and somehow completes every part of me. When I was a young child, I remember always picturing myself as a mommy when I grew up and I knew that I would be a great mommy and I wanted to be a best friend to my kids like my mom was to me. I never knew the challenges that came along with Motherhood. I never knew how much you would worry about these precious gifts from God that you brought into this world. A dear friend of mine is a new mommy to her second child and I have been chatting with her about her challenges she's been having and that has prompted me to write this post, because I'm hoping that, like some moms out there, I want you to know, that, yes, we go through this... so I want to share with you my story. I guess I should start with my birth stories.... Cause those are always fun... LOL With our first child, Nicholas, our birth plan, as with most, we wanted to of course go the natural way
