Espresso Myths: Magical Crema

My Recipes
Caribbean Jerk Chicken Wings
Who else loves Buffalo Wild Wings ! I recreated my favorite BWW Caribbean Jerk wings Paleo-style! These slightly spicy and sweet wings are the perfect game day bite!
Pumpkin Cider Cocktail
Looking for a festive fall drink for Halloween? My Spiced Pumpkin Cider is great for kids but also has a special adult-only version too! The spiced pumpkin syrup is also amazing in coffee. ## I made these fun jack-o-lantern glasses with a sharpie that wipes away with a little rubbing alcohol once the fun is done!
Candy Corn Gummies
Paleo Candy Corn Gummies! These tasty bites ditch the refined sugar and dyes in favor of gut-healing gelatin and anti-inflammatory turmeric!
A favorite year after year! I made these Pomegranate Balsamic Brussels Sprouts in my Story earlier for our annual Friendsgiving! And I’ll be making them again in a few days! They are just that good!
Not a fan of sweet potato casserole? I created this Winter Squash Casserole topped with a simple meringue instead of marshmallows that is a great substitute on Thanksgiving!
Fall salad alert! Thinly sliced prosciutto pairs with a poached pear, dried cranberries, figs and pecans tossed with fresh greens and a white balsamic vinaigrette! 🥗🍐🍒 Is it just me or does prosciutto make everything amazing?? ## For the recipe, search “poached pear” on the blog.
NEW// Paleo Butternut Squash Hummus is now on the blog! This tasty dip is the perfect Thanksgiving appetizer or fall game day eat!
Weekends are for brunching, and I’m love the fall flavors in this hash! Bosc pears, butternut squash, dried cranberries and bacon combined for a flavor packed bite! ## For the recipe, search “fall breakfast” on my blog!
Say Double Chocolate Pumpkin Seed Power Balls five times fast! The name might be a mouthful, but these tasty bites are an easy and tasty fall treat! 🎃🍁 For the recipe, search “power balls” on my blog.
Oh Chipotle. Thank you for being there when it’s cold outside and I don’t want to cook. What do you get from Chipotle? My @chipotlemexicangrill order: Steak burrito bowl, white rice (#teamwhiterice ), double fajita veggies, pico, medium salsa, corn salsa (yup- I eat corn sometimes), a dash of hot salsa, guacamole, and lots and lots of lettuce!! And yes they tend to look at me strange when I order four salsas, but they are all so good!! 🌶💕
