Stir Fry Cabbage with Sichuan Peppercorn (Paleo, Gluten Free, Whole30, Vegan)

I feel like cabbage is so underrated!  It’s so delicious to me… but I mostly stir fry it Chinese style.  One common method is to stir fry cabbage with dried shrimp (recipe here), but another is to stir fry cabbage with Sichuan peppercorn! This gives it a different flavor and it’s always fun to switch it up and eat something different and delicious once in awhile.

Paleo Coconut Caramel Brownies

I don’t usually bake. I’ve always been good at it, but it just never seems quite as fun.

So when the words “I’ll bake you something!” came out of my mouth as a bribe to get my supervisor at work to help me, I got a little scared when I realized I’d have to do something I hadn’t done in years — and this time, do it Paleo.

Paleo Roasted Root Vegetables

Root vegetables are to fall as asparagus is to spring. And yes, you know a true foodie when their season’s are marked by the changes in produce not the changes in weather. And I know, Brussels Sprouts aren’t root vegetables, but the name of this recipe was so catchy I couldn’t help myself! Forgive me. This Paleo Roasted Root Vegetables recipe is not your typical roasted root vegetable recipe. Yes, there are herbs and rustic knife cuts. But, this method of seasoning makes it so every vegetable is slightly different and totally jazzes up what is typically a one note dish.

I am not a breakfast fan, but I am a brunch fan. There is something to be said about a relaxing Sunday with a nice Bloody Mary (or Maria if you are me). The classic garlicky and spicy pickled green beans is the quintessential stirring stick of a bloody Mary. And best of all, to achieve this classic dilly bean, you just need is some basic canning equipment and patience.
