Whole30 Shepherd’s Pie

Whole30 Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd’s pie was and is a Finnegan family classic. I grew up eating it, though probably in a slightly different way than most people. My mom would make the beef or veal filling and then the mashed potatoes seperately. It wasn’t baked, instead we’d pour […]

Paleo Apple Crisp Yogurt Parfaits

If I’m being honest, I’ve never been the biggest yogurt fan. My younger brother is, and always has been! But not me. It’s alright, I guess. Though many commercially produced yogurts are SO high in sugar that you’ll want to be careful which ones you […]

Cherry Cheesecake Strudel

I absolutely love puff pastry. The flaky layers, the buttery taste, it’s all so marvelous, don’t you think? I’ve even made homemade puff pastry before. And let me tell you, it’s a whole lot of work! I’ve decided store bought is just as good and […]

Indian Mulligatawny Soup

It’s a whopping 16 degrees here in Colorado! There’s a solid 6 inches of snow on the ground and all the schools across the front range are cancelled. If that doesn’t scream “soup weather!”, then I don’t know what does. And I’m all about the […]

Sometimes, I think I was born on the wrong continent. I would love to be British, because who doesn’t love a high tea? Every time we visit Disney World, we always participate in the Grand Floridian’s high tea. High tea was also one of the […]

Stir fries are so underappreciated in my house. I NEVER remember to make them, even though they’re fabulous. So easy to make, and there’s so many variations you can create with them! They also reheat perfectly for a quick lunch at the office. For once, […]

Swedish Stuffed Cabbages

Swedish Stuffed Cabbages

It’s finally snowing here in Colorado. And all the soups, stews, and anything stuffed are calling my name! I’ve made three different soups and a beef stew this week. Now comes the Swedish stuffed cabbages! This recipe is an all-time favorite of my dad. So, […]

Slow Cooker Lemongrass Pulled Pork

Slow Cooker Lemongrass Pulled Pork

Here in Colorado Springs, we have this great restaurant called Modern Market, or ModMarket for short. They’re all about eating whole foods, foods that are free from preservatives and fillers, and are just better for you! One of my favorite dishes (besides their gluten-free pizzas) […]

Smothered Pork Chops

Smothered Pork Chops

It’s Day 6 of this round of Whole30 I’m doing and I’m finally feeling good again! Day 3-4 were the hardest so far for me; I went to bed both nights with a headache. Though strangely, I started both days feeling pretty good! It just […]
