Creamy Green Paleo Smoothie

To say that the days fly by with an infant, a child no less, is a complete understatement. Everyday I wake up at 5am, I blink and it’s 6pm. My day starts and ends with feeding, burping, pumping, changing diapers, take the dogs out, calming down baby, repeat. Notice, no real significant breaks. Having a…

Behind the Scenes of Just Be Kitchen

Since Just Be Kitchen opened in the spring of 2017, I’ve been so envious. At that time, we didn’t know that we’d be moving and becoming residents of Denver three short months later. However, we planned to visit JBK while in Denver for my birthday in August. Needless to say, now that we are full blown…

There’s No Place like Rome

Ugh what I would do to live in Italy. Although I’ve only visited twice, I’ve spent a good chunk of time there both times I’ve visited. As you can imagine, my favorite part of Italy is obviously the food. Don’t get me wrong, the sites are beautiful and the air is fresh AF, but the food is…

Home, Home On The Range

As you know, we live in a world where using shit ingredients like canola oil (in almost EVERY good on the shelves) , aspartame (in gum), food dyes, sodium nitrates (in normal bacon, sausages, etc.), and man-made ingredients is socially accepted. Why? A part of society doesn’t 1. read the ingredients, 2. doesn’t care about the…

Paleo / AIP / Whole30 Polish Pierogis and Dumplings

Ugh, what I would do to reverse back the clock to 2005’s Christmas Eve dinner at my Grandmother’s house. This was the last time my family has eaten a homemade polish meal. This was also before I moved out of my parents house, had perpetual student loan payments, experienced my first real heartbreak, food allergies,…

Paleo/AIP Friendly Paella

One thing I miss on AIP is definitely spicy food. I used to LOVE all types of ethnic foods, Ethiopian, Chinese, Peruvian, Thai, Spanish – the spicier the better. Although I can’t technically have spicy, another thing I love just as much are colorful foods. Seeing only dark greens and bland colored potatoes during the colder…

Chicken (But Really Pork Sausage) Soup for the Soul

Now that winter is full blown here in Chitown, everyone and their mothers’ sinuses/respiratory systems are feeling the wrath. Plus, being bone chilling cold outside wants me to get a giant bowl of piping hot ramen (my favorite ramen place in the city is STILL Furious Spoon – not diet compliant). Since luscious ramen noodles and spicy…

Why Cooking Liver isn’t so Scary

I know what you’re thinking, “ew, Aimee. Why the eff would you ever touch and cook liver?” Well liver wasn’t exactly my first, second, or third choice of cuisine either. I’ve read that there are extremely beneficial traits that come with eating organ meat, however, because I was grossed out, I never read any further….

Behind the Scenes – Artango Bar and Steakhouse

Now that the dust has settled and our moving boxes have been put away, the hubs and I ADORE our new neighborhood. There are no ambulances every 5 minutes, no busy streets with tourists, or at the mercy of annoying high-rise elevators. We love that we feel like we live in a “big kid” home…
