Here’s a pasta recipe for you that uses only a few basic staple ingredients but really delivers on satisfaction + flavor. Ingredients involve pasta , scallions / spring onions , anchovies , garlic , and lemon 🐟🧄🍋 Hoping this will be helpful to you in some way and sending you all the good vibes!
Serves 2: Cut 3-4 scallions or a small bunch of spring onions cut into 2-3 inch batons. If you can find spring onions , they have a bigger bulb , so quarter those. If you only have scallions , then cutting them into batons are just fine. In a skillet , heat some oil on med-high heat and cook undisturbed until slightly charred and golden in some spots , about 3-5 min. Give everything a toss , remove from heat and keep warm.
In a large saucepan or small pot , cook ½ lb. pasta of your choice according to package directions. Drain , save about ½ cup cooking water. Set pasta + pasta water aside and keep warm. Empty a small 2oz. tin of anchovies (with oil) into the same saucepan , along with a couple of crushed garlic cloves and a touch more olive oil if you’d like. The anchovies should be pretty salty so you don’t need to add any extra salt. Warm up the oil , anchovies and garlic on med-low heat. When things are slightly sizzling , tilt the pot and use a wooden spoon to gently break up + mash the anchovies into the oil until they’re completely disintegrated. When the garlic is fragrant , return the cooked pasta into the saucepan and stir everything to combine. Add in a splash of reserved pasta water if things look a little dry. When the pasta is warmed through , add in the reserved scallions / spring onions , a generous squeeze of ½ lemon , and chili pepper flakes (optional). Enjoy immediately!

Return of my air fryer low carb BBQ meatloaf! This time I doubled the recipe (below) & baked it in an 8x8 dish in the oven. Still turned out amazing. I seriously STILL get a few messages a week (even tho it’s been a WHILE since I posted about it) from people telling me they made it & the whole family loved it - even picky kids!
RECIPE FOR MEATLOAF:
1 lb 85/15 ground beef (I used grass-fed organic because I found some on sale)
2 Tbsp heavy cream
1/4 c. onion (grated or chopped SUPER tiny)
2 Tbsp low sugar BBQ sauce (I used @alternasweets plus a splash of Worcestershire sauce)
2/3 cup @porkkinggood crushed pork rinds
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese (the powdery kind)
1 tsp parsley
1/2 tsp pink salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
RECIPE FOR THE GLAZE:
1/4 cup @alternasweets ketchup (or other reduced sugar ketchup)
2 Tbsp @swerve brown sugar substitute
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
Combine all ingredients for the meatloaf in a bowl & mix REALLY WELL (if you don’t mix it enough it will be too moist/crumbly & not hold together).
In a SEPARATE bowl , mix all ingredients for the glaze.
This time I pressed the prepared meatloaf mixture into greased 8x8 pan , then baked at 375° for 30 minutes. Took it out , spread the glaze over the top of the meatloaf , then continued to cook for another 25ish minutes until done.
This recipe was originally based on a recipe from @the_wholesome_dish , which I thought looked good- then I adapted several things to make it low carb , and I USUALLY make it in the air fryer instead of the oven.
Also , the glaze SO MUCH BETTER than just regular ketchup! I’ll never use regular ketchup on meatloaf again.
Serve it w/your favorite cauli mash recipe for a true comfort food style low carb/keto dinner.

Burst Cherry Tomato + Kale + Prosciutto Pasta!
This is a simple pan roasted kale , cherry tomato , and prosciutto pasta with lots of garlic , lemon , fresh herbs and topped with delicious burrata cheese. An easy weeknight or weekend dinner that’s made using some pantry staples and ready to eat in 45 minutes..or 30 min if you leave out the chicken 😊. If you want to make this and don’t have burrata or prosciutto , just use fresh mozzarella and bacon😬. Also , the chicken isn’t necessary in this recipe so it’s definitely vegetarian friendly if you omit the prosciutto .
The video recipe is on my highlights!

Classic Chicken Pot Pie - Slab Style. ⠀
I can’t thank Cathy Barrow enough for teaching me how to make a killer pie crust. Every. Single. Time. I’ve always been afraid of pie crust because mine were disasters - years of awful pie crusts , and I basically gave up. I ran across Cathy’s book , Pie Squared and followed her instructions *to the T* (including adjustments for our mile high elevation) - and low & behold - it worked. All the credit goes to Cathy for her perfect step by step instructions. 👍
So here we have my Chicken Pot Pie filling & Cathy’s all butter crust.⠀
Click the link in my bio for my filling recipe & check out @cathybarrow insta , website , and buy that book for this and many other amazing crusts & slap pie recipes. My book is dog eared , highlighted and smudged with flour - the way it should be. 😊
Stay healthy everyone. 💙

In an attempt to save money and also not go to there grocery store , I’ve been pulling meals I’ve made out of the freezer. Hello freezer stash!! I am so thankful for you. 🙏 .
Here’s a Gnocchi Lasagna that was delicious and I realized I never shared the recipe with you. I love the creamy puffiness of the gnocchi more than lasagna noodles. You don’t need a lot , this dish is filling. And best served with a big green salad. You should try it and tell me if you feel the same about the gnocchi swap. 🥰 .
Here’s the recipe -
1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 lb ground sausage
1 onion chopped
1 green pepper chopped
1 can diced tomatoes (or 1/2 pint cherry tomatoes sliced)
1 jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
Salt and pepper to taste
1 lb ricotta or cottage cheese
4 cups shredded Mozzerella cheese (I like to buy a block and shred it myself because it melts better)
1 lb gnocchi (I love the mini variety)
Cook beef and sausage until no longer pink , drain and set aside. In same pan cook onion and pepper until soft. Add tomatoes. Stir in spaghetti sauce , oregano , basil , salt & pepper. Let simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in beef and sausage. Set aside.
Cook gnocchi as directed on box , drain and set aside.
In a small bowl whisk egg and ricotta (or cottage cheese) until well blended and set aside.
In a greased 13x9 baking dish (or small individual ones) , layer 1/2 meat mixture , 1/2 gnocchi , 1/2 ricotta mix , and 1/2 Mozzerella cheese. Repeat layers.
Cover and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 20 minutes. Let sit for 15 minutes before serving. .

THAI CASHEW SHRIMP: made with pantry and freezer Ingredients! Throwing it back to this super simple and delicious dish from a couple months ago , as I am busy in the kitchen working on some more simple recipes. Happy Wednesday everyone. I hope you all are doing okay , despite the crazy times. I know I’m feeling overwhelmed , tired , out of sorts...but just remember we are all in this together. ❤️ My unwanted advice: just focus on today and breathe. This sauce recipe is an old one , and could use almond or peanut butter. I often use it for pad Thai , but it works just as well with veggies and rice. Make it #whole30 by using some cauliflower rice (an easy freezer staple) and the sauce substitute below. I’m back in the kitchen this afternoon after Ona’s (my new puppy) , first visit to the vet. I was such a proud mama , she did so well 😭 She also learned to go down the stairs by herself! Sending a big virtual hug to you all right now. Please , continue to send requests for recipes...I have been making a list from the messages and comments I have gotten. •
Deets: any type of rice , steamed frozen broccoli , roasted mini red peppers (could easily omit or use any other veggie) , cashews quickly roasted with spices) , frozen wild shrimp seasoned with salt and pepper and tossed in a little sriracha and coconut aminos for a kick and sautéed for 2 minutes per side on medium high. SAUCE: 1/4 cup @georgiagrinders cashew butter , 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk , 1-2 tablespoons coconut aminos depending on how sweet you like it (COULD SUB WITH EXTRA SOY SAUCE AND A DASH OF HONEY) , 1 tbls Soy sauce (sub with more coconut aminos for whole30) juice of 1/2 lime (or more if you like a tang) , 1.5 teaspoons curry powder , 1/4 teaspoon or more red pepper flakes. Whisk together until smooth and creamy! Add water to thin!
