Italian-Spiced 50/50 Sausages

  I feel like I am always talking about how amazing homemade sausage patties are–they make a perfect quick breakfast solution, protein snack, or emergency meal. I always have at least one type in my freezer for easy meals. If you feel like your time on the autoimmune protocol has you acting like a slave…

Cream of Broccoli Soup

  This time of year I am always creating new soups and stews, both because they are a great way to get more bone broth into the diet and they are hearty and satisfying on a cold day. This is a simple recreation of Cream of Broccoli soup, autoimmune protocol style–I use rutabaga, a often overlooked…

Gingersnap Cookies and Coconut Milk

  While developing the gingersnap crust for my Pumpkin-Spice Cake, I had a happy accident that turned into cookies. A little extra spice and molasses instead of maple syrup and they turned into the perfect gingersnap. This means two coconut-free holiday treat recipes from me this holiday season (no more complaining, coconut sensitive people!). I’ve also…

Parsnip and Pear Soup With Fried Sage

  I have to make sure while on the autoimmune protocol that I include lots of starchy carbs like parsnips, sweet potatoes, winter squash, and plantains or I start to have low energy. When roasted root veggies gets old, I like to switch gears and make blended soups – very few dishes are as comforting! This recipe…

Raspberry Peppermint Bark

  One of the “treats” I really miss since I have been on the autoimmune protocol are the peppermint candies and candy canes that pop up around the holidays. While I am not about to go near the food dyes, processed sugar and chemical flavorings found in the conventional ones, I thought it might be…

Salmon with Citrus-Cranberry Relish

Wondering what to make with that leftover Citrus-Cranberry Relish I posted last week? I made the incredible discovery  that it is absolutely AMAZING as a topping for baked salmon. The cranberries cook ever so slightly, giving a tart and festive flavor to an otherwise simple salmon fillet. Although I haven’t tried it yet, I imagine…

Citrus-Cranberry Relish

  When I moved to Seattle a few years ago, I started a Thanksgiving collaboration with my friend Brenna Rose Miller (who is also the stylist for my upcoming cookbook!). Both of our families are originally from California, but over time have migrated to the northwest. Every year we get together and have a big…

Apple-Cranberry Holiday Stuffing

  It has been awhile since I have had a recipe to post on the blog – truth be told I have been so busy cooking for the cookbook photo shoots that I have not had time for developing new recipes. Since the shoots ended a couple of weeks ago, I have been hard at…
