German Apple Strudel

German Apple Strudel

As I sit on a Mexico beach, we’re discussing all things #Easterbrunchweek! The main religion of Mexico is Catholicism so they’re big into Easter celebrations! We’ll miss actual Easter Sunday here but that hasn’t stopped us from catching glimpses of their Easter traditions! The pastries, […]

Gluten Free Easter Bread

Gluten Free Easter Bread

Easter bread is a family tradition for us. I grew up with it every year for breakfast Easter morning and it always made an appearance at our Easter brunches or lunches. I’ve sorely missed it the last few years since going gluten-free. So, I decided, […]

Grain-Free Japchae

Grain-Free Japchae

Don’t you just love 30 minute meals? I know I do! Especially this week, before heading out on vacation, I’ve got to put in 10 hour days at work. It’s going to be nuts! So my meals need to be quick and easy. And my […]

Sheet Pan Honey-Garlic Turkey

Sheet Pan Honey-Garlic Turkey

Have you ever had a major security hack on your website? Well, I sure did this week! And let me tell you, it’s no fun at all! It’s costly, both in time and money and there was real fear that I would lose everything on […]

Sheet Pan Mini Turkey-Apple Meatloaves

Sheet Pan Mini Turkey-Apple Meatloaves

I’m all about the sheet pan meals this week. Three different versions went down in my kitchen over the weekend, and they all featured turkey in some way! Why, you ask? Because turkey was hugely on sale at my local grocery store last week! I […]

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

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

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

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 […]

Paleo Chocolate Cinnamon Scones

Paleo Chocolate Cinnamon Scones

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 […]
