Paleo Bacon Brownies

Paleo Bacon Brownies
These brownies are the best combo of sweet and salty. One of my favorite combos in the whole world. They definitely don’t scream bacon. Just the tiniest amount of salty and savory to compliment the chocolatey flavor. You might be thinking “What?! Bacon in brownies…?” But trust me on this one. Not as weird as it sounds.

Flourless Almond Brownies with Pomegranate Berry Compote

Flourless Almond Brownies with Pomegranate Berry Compote
I’ll take brownies over any other dessert nearly every time. I can’t express how much I love them. The chewy, fudgy texture and rich dark chocolate makes me weak in the knees. These brownies are making me fall in love even more (if that’s even possible). And they’re flourless! I used almond meal as the base and the texture it creates is so delicious. Seriously the fudgiest.

Hearty winter salads are the best! It’s officially SO COLD here in Maryland and I’m not happy about it. I’m such a warm weather girl at heart, so the winter isn’t exactly my favorite time. I absolutely love the holidays and this time of year, but come January 1st, I’m ready for shorts again.

This salad is for those times where you want something healthy, but also comforting. It also hold up really well in the fridge because kale is so hearty!

Crispy Plantain & Egg Breakfast Bowls with Avocado Chimichurri

I can’t tell you how much I LOVE fried plantains (a.k.a. tostones). There’s a little hole in the wall Cuban place near me that has the BEST I’ve ever had. They pound the plantains super thin before frying them and serve the tostones with a garlicky mojo dipping sauce. It’s pretty much food heaven.

I was inspired to make my own and turn it into a savory breakfast situation! There’s scrambled eggs, plantains fried in coconut oil (twice!) to make them super crispy, a quick pico de gallo, and avocado chimichurri! I want to put it on everything.
