Cast Iron Skillet Steak 101

Posted by on Jul 30, 2020 in blog | Comments Off on Cast Iron Skillet Steak 101

Today, we are talking about a subject that is very close to my heart: mastering your cast iron skillet steak. Mastering steak at all is an achievement, but there is something extra delicious about the flavor that comes from the cast iron that brings your steak to another level. This recipe is definitely Keto, but it can also be slightly altered to fit into Paleo and Whole 30 requirements simply by switching from regular butter to ghee. What I love about making steak is how few ingredients are needed to develop a really complex, layered flavor. It should be noted that these tips are several months in the making. The amount of trial and errors that have been done to...

Bacon Wrapped Veggies (Paleo / Whole 30)

Posted by on Jul 23, 2020 in blog | Comments Off on Bacon Wrapped Veggies (Paleo / Whole 30)

The new best way to eat your veggies? Wrapped in a bacon parcel of course! These easy, individually (and deliciously) wrapped veggie sticks are roasted to perfection with crispy bacon: the perfect salty and naturally sweet snack you’ll enjoy all summer! Our local grocery store has been featuring an in store organic farmer’s market, and I can’t pass up a chance to buy locally grown organic veggies! Hence how this recipe came to be. We love this untraditional take on “normal” roasted veggies. This is definitely a “set it and forget it” recipe that just requires a bit of slicing prep and you’re good to go. Serve these fun...

Sweet Potato Avocado Chicken Salad (Paleo / Whole 30)

Posted by on Jul 16, 2020 in blog | Comments Off on Sweet Potato Avocado Chicken Salad (Paleo / Whole 30)

This recipe is all about a blend of a few of my favorite foods to combine into an incredible summer recipe full of wholesome ingredients. Packed with veggies, full of flavor, easy to whip up…there is really nothing better than this dish on a hot summer day!  I am not a fan of mayonnaise, even if it is paleo mayonnaise. So when I started making chicken and tuna salad with avocados, it was quite a game-changer! A super ripe avocado just adds another level of flavor and has the perfect creamy texture to bind the salad together.  Because I like being a bit avant garde when it comes to ingredients, I decided to shred and roast some brussels sprouts for a...

Mama Jess’ Guide to Grilled Pizza

Posted by on Jul 2, 2020 in blog, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Mama Jess’ Guide to Grilled Pizza

The Grill Master is back! I have been loving learning a new cooking technique this summer so I have been experimenting with everything I can. This week I decided to dive into grilled pizzas, with Mama Jess sauce of course! This is a fun dinner to get your family involved with, the kids will love rolling out the pizza dough and choosing their toppings. Grilling pizzas are a great alternative to the usual pizzas in the oven. Not only are they ready faster, but they have a really delicious smokey flavor to them. Not to mention, the crust crisps up on the outside and stays soft and fluffy on the inside. Plus, your kitchen doesn’t heat up from the oven being on, so...
