Picadillo

Whenever I’m in a time crunch for dinner, this is my go to dish. It’s super fast to make, incredibly flavorful and we almost always have enough for leftovers!

Crustless Zucchini Quiche

Hi friends! Now that it’s summer, zucchini season is in full swing. I use zucchini for EVERYTHING!

Cheesy Smashed Cauliflower

One of the foods I miss most while on my SCD journey is mashed potatoes. To me it is such a comfort food and while smashed cauliflower is good, I was never able to make it with the same richness and texture of potatoes. After a lot of trial and error I’ve come up with

Braised Italian Style Chicken

In my household we tend to eat a lot of chicken and unfortunately that can get old really quick! I’m constantly trying to mix things up with new flavors and recipes. This chicken is baked in a combination of tomatoes, mushrooms and thyme and takes no time at all to prepare. When served with a
