Nashville Hot Chicken Lettuce Cups with Overnight Pickles is the perfect recipe when you need a Whole30 compliant version of this delicious spicy appetizer. 0

Nashville Hot Chicken Lettuce Cups with Overnight Pickles

Rob and I lived in Music City for over 6 years, and yet somehow we never discovered the phenomenon that has become Nashville Hot Chicken. I don’t get it. And Rob is the biggest fanatic of spicy food I’ve ever known. So, I really don’t get it. How could this have happened? Disbelief aside, I experienced Nashville Hot Chicken for the first time at a Louisville-based restaurant in Indy. (Wild Eggs, for those of you thinking it must have been KFC…) Yeah, this chicken packs a punch. I ate my first piece of Nashville Hot Chicken in about 5 installments...

Smoky Chicken & Poblano Chili is Whole30 compliant, packed with delicious flavor, and loaded with healthy veggies. This is how to do Whole30 chili justice. 0

Smoky Chicken & Poblano Chili in the Ninja Cooking System

It dawned on me the other day that I’m becoming a serious poblano pepper pusher. Maybe I realized it as I scarfed down a second helping of Smoky Chicken & Poblano Chili, I dunno. But I’ve written quite a handful of recipes containing poblano lately. Probably because it’s just a solid, robust and delish flavor. I want to put poblanos in everything! The poblanos definitely worked their magic again in this chili. I originally developed it to be a Whole30 compliant chili recipe since beans and pasta may normally show up in a bowl at my house. At first, I thought these recipes would...

Our recipe for Whole30 Baked Tuna Cakes with Dijon Sauce is a low cost, flavorful dinner option—also perfect for low carb menus! 0

Whole30 Baked Tuna Cakes with Dijon Sauce

My husband’s girlfriend (Paula Deen) has a recipe she calls Faux Crab Cakes. I’ve loved that recipe for years because it’s so quick and easy to make—and perfect for low budget weeks. Plus, the taste is great. Surprisingly, the recipe contains no butter at all. But Paula’s recipe doesn’t quite fit into a Whole30 lifestyle on account of the breadcrumbs and frying in oil. I decided to fix that—and I developed this recipe for Whole30 Baked Tuna Cakes with Dijon Sauce. We typically enjoy our tuna cakes with tartar sauce, which is also difficult to find in a Whole30 variety without spending...

This Whole30 compliant salad is cheese-free and delicious as can be. Grapefruit, fennel and hints of Asian influence give these greens all the flavor they need. 0

Mixed Greens Salad with Fennel & Grapefruit {Whole30 Compliant}

Before we get into this recipe for Mixed Greens Salad with Fennel & Grapefruit (which I’ve made Whole30 compliant by omitting any kind of cheese), I want to ask for a quick follow on Facebook. We’re a small blog trying to go big, and social media is a great way for you to share the Dish-y recipes you love! I usually write salad recipes to stand in as a side dish, and this one follows suit. Now, you could easily double any of these salad recipes and throw some protein on top, like grilled chicken or salmon. Then you could call it a...

The Medieval Times dinner shows may be a little silly, but they serve up a wickedly delicious Medieval dinner. Perfectly seasoned roasted meats and vegetables that you can eat with your hands! 0

Roasted Medieval Dinner ♛ {Whole30 Compliant}

I’m looking at the picture of my Whole30 compliant Roasted Medieval Dinner, and I just realized that I put a glass of wine in the setting. Oh well! That’s because I’ve been making this meal long before I knew what Whole30 even was. I guess I get bonus points for developing Whole30 recipes with my eyes closed, right? I’ve actually been making this meal since 2013. It was shortly after I returned from a business trip to Orlando that I became obsessed with replicating the meal I had at one of those silly Medieval Times dinner shows. I’d never been...

My signature seasoning blend is perfect for poultry, potatoes and vegetables—but I also use it for salmon, pork and casseroles. You'll love the savory flavor of this all-purpose seasoning! 0

Williams House Seasoning {All-Purpose Seasoned Salt}

Everyone needs a go-to house seasoning blend—something you can put on anything and everything to add some quick flavor and a special touch to basic meals. Growing up, I remember my dad reaching for Lawry’s Seasoned Salt a lot. I also remember it turning canned green beans into a much more flavorful vegetable I actually liked to eat. Lawry’s adds a simplistic flavor, but some flavor is better than none! I’ve used it many times as a base, adding other seasonings on top of it to spruce it up. Even though the ingredient list is pretty ambiguous (i.e. “salt, spices.” Yeah,...

Potato skins make a great meal or addition to any party food lineup—but are usually topped with cheese and sour cream. Bacon, caramelized onion and poblano take the lead role in these dairy-free, Whole30 compliant skins, and boy are they tasty! 0

Whole30 Bacon & Poblano Potato Skins

I’m getting close to the end of my first round of Whole30, and I just wanted potato skins. Not sweet potato skins—just good old regular potato skins. But take away the melty cheese and rich sour cream… Whomp, whomp. I didn’t want a scooped-out baked potato sprinkled with bacon, I wanted potato skins! I needed to find a way to knock it out of the park on the flavor scale since I’m going 30 full days without dairy. And some labor-intensive dairy alternative wasn’t gonna cut it—even if it didn’t go against the spirit of the Whole30. Dairy is rich and...

Whole30 Shrimp & Sausage Gumbo Recipe 0

Whole30 Shrimp & Sausage Gumbo

I met my husband while living in Nashville. But there’s one more long-term love affair that started during my time in the South: Gumbo. Gumbo was one of the first uniquely Southern foods I tried after settling into my new part of the country. And I ate gumbo at about every opportunity I had after that first bite. I stumbled upon a really fantastic gumbo recipe in a cookbook that I previously would have been unlikely to want. It’s Clifford Wright’s Some Like It Hot. Even though my wimpy tastebuds have an aversion to spicy, I was totally geared toward...

Coconut Chile Lime Crusted Salmon from Dish-y.com is a quick and easy seafood main dish that's perfect when cooking for two. Sweet, spicy and delicious! 0

Coconut Chile Lime Crusted Salmon

The hubs and I try to incorporate fish (or seafood) at least once per week. I love cooking fish because it’s usually easy to prepare and cooks up quick. Salmon is a frequent choice because we love it and the healthy omega-3’s for the nutritional value. My go-to seasoning for easy salmon is dill and paprika, but it was time for something different. That’s why I developed this recipe for Coconut Chile Lime Crusted Salmon. The combination of flavors on this crusted salmon recipe would definitely be categorized as Asian fusion. These are some of my favorite tastes. Coconut and...

Coconut Curry Salmon with Zucchini Noodles Recipe from Dish-y.com 0

Coconut Curry Salmon with Zucchini Noodles

I developed the recipe for Coconut Curry Salmon with Zucchini Noodles for the Ninja Cooking System. One of my favorite dishes to order from our local Thai restaurant is Yellow Curry with chicken. I also make it at home, and load it with carrots, onions and potatoes. Delicious. Such a great comfort food dish. Of course, since it’s the beginning of the year, I’m on a kick to integrate more healthy dishes into our lineup. My focus is on getting more fresh vegetables (preferably green) and whole grains. But really, this is nothing new for me, I am just in...
