Gluten-Free Pork Schnitzel

26757095_788451031365523_6251534751525026988_o.jpgI have to confess before my husband, I had no clue what pork schnitzel was. And I still say it wrong. I was intrigued watching him make it for his frat boys, though. Needless to say it’s been on my list for awhile.

The last year I’ve been cooking up some delicious lunches and dinners for Zach and I. Taco Chili. Deep Dish Pizza. Ricotta Baked Chicken. Chicken Enchilada Casserole. Buffalo Chicken Dip. And Philly Cheesesteak Meatloaf. The meatloaf was one of my favorites and I’ll post the recipe once I make a tweak to it. So good.

This dish though, was one of my other favorites. I really like using pork rinds in place of bread crumbs in pretty much every recipe. This meal was SO filling. Mashed cauliflower has kind of been my go-to lately too. It’s so easy. Just boil the cauliflower and puree in a food processor. I have found a tablespoon or tow of cream cheese makes it whipped and wonderful. Definitely gives the best texture.

Banana Brownies

img_20161020_184851My husband loves some bananas. I made him a banana cream pie last year at this time, before we were even dating. Naturally, when a recipe pops up on my Pinterest with bananas, I pause, and usually pin.

A month ago I saw a recipe for banana brownies. Clearly a no-brainer, they were also undeniably pretty, which further had me yearning to tweak the recipe. Finally, a month later I have made them! This living between two cities, and five days in a frat house has been challenging for me to experiment in the kitchen. I have equipment and baking materials scattered between the two cities. And the fact that it is not like baking at home. That is my happy place. An idea will pop into my head or work or Pinterest will inspire me or a walk will fill my head with deliciousness, and I will just go in the kitchen and make it. Not as easy lately, plus planning a reception and writing thank you cards. Life has had my attention and my business has not been on the forefront of my thoughts.

But wedding things our done. We have guidance and direction. We are going to be moving into a new apartment in November. Our dogs will be here. I can bake whenever I want. I can shower without Zach standing guard. Our stuff won’t be in boxes and will be in one place. And I will be able to focus here, on my baby, my P3. It is my creative outlet and I miss it. I miss writing. I miss creating. Not to mention being able to make a little space feel like ours. To fill it with good vibes and positivity and love. I look forward to the privacy and freedom again of having something of our own.

Since I finished thank-you cards on Sunday, I promised myself this week, no matter what I would post something. That I will make new recipes. And that I will share them here. So I hope you enjoy, and keep checking this week for more recipes and thoughts to come! These were fudgey perfection! I made the mistake of baking them in little bite-size portions too, which made them a little too easy to pop.

Seeweed Egg Bliss

013 - CopyThis is how I really eat most of the time!! I love eggs. I could eat them all day everyday. In fact when I took off to California to explore Yosemite, I had my backpack and 4 dozen hard-boiled eggs. Often I don’t even like fruit, so an omelet style morning meal is ideal for me. I also really enjoy seaweed. Anytime I’m in Indy, mom and I are quick to pick up some seaweed chips. I began adding them to my eggs, it gave them a different taste and provided some added tastiness. And I get some sea nutrients right out the gate. The omelet itself can have infinite amounts of vegetables.

Blissful Baco (The Bacon Taco)

Baco

One of my dearest friends told me she does not like bacon. How is this even possible!! I on the other hand am a big bacon lover. I think I could make a whole month (actually more than a month) of just bacon blogs. Today let’s start with a dinner staple-the taco. It seems like every time my friends and I decide to get together, tacos of some sort make the menu. In honor of this, I today’s recipe is for future celebrations. My wonderful mother of course was willing to lay her taste buds on the line and test this beauty. ‘Oh, wow Britt, that is awesome!’ This is the reaction I got and I think it’s enough said on why you should try this!

Thyme and Sea Salt Cookies

051

I saw an original cookie recipe with thyme and sea salt somewhere, so I decided to take the regular almond flour cookie recipes and give it a whirl. I like the savory sweet combo, plus I don’t like overly sweet desserts. I was pleasantly surprised with the turnout as well. They were the perfect texture too.
