Butternut Squash Pancakes
Serves: 4
Cook Time: 15 minutes

These are hands down the favorite pancakes at my house. Gluten-free, protein-rich, and fiber-filled, they are as good for you as they taste. And they’re quick and easy to make in a pinch (I always make sure to have canned butternut squash puree on hand). You’ll be hooked. Replace the butternut squash with pumpkin puree in the fall or sweet potato puree for a little variety.
4 ounces cooked butternut squash puree (just over 1/2 cup)
4 eggs
1/2 cup oat flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean powder
Pinch of pink Himalayan salt
Coconut oil, for the pan

1. In a large bowl, whisk together the squash, eggs, flour, cinnamon, baking soda, vanilla powder, and salt until fully combined.
2. Heat the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Pour in about 1/4 cup of the batter for each pancake. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on the first side, or until bubbling, then flip and cook another 2 to 3 minutes, or until cooked through.
3. Serve immediately with butter and pure maple syrup, or your favorite toppings.

Thai Bison Skirt Steak Salad
Serves: 2
Cook Time: 5 minutes

Light and fresh, this salad is perfect for a warm summer day. Simple in the best possible way, this salad leaves its mark with the delicious sweet orange dressing. Bison is my current favorite protein for its amazing health benefits: It’s lean and grass-fed and has tons of omega-3s and conjugated linoleic acid.

1 tablespoon tamari
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 orange, zested
1 teaspoon chili flakes
1 pound bison skirt steak
1/2 head oak leaf lettuce, shredded
3 cups baby spinach
1/2 cup roughly chopped bamboo shoots
3 scallions, sliced, white parts only
1 orange, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup chopped toasted almonds

1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon chopped basil
1 tablespoon raw honey
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
1 teaspoon sliced scallions
1/4 cup toasted sesame oil

1. To make the salad: In a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag, mix together the tamari, sesame seeds, lime juice, orange zest, and chili flakes. Add the skirt steak and marinate for at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
2. Warm a skillet pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the steak and sear for 3 minutes on each side, or until cooked medium. Let the steak rest for 15 to 20 minutes before thinly slicing.
3. In a large bowl, add the lettuce, spinach, bamboo shoots, scallions, orange, and steak.
4. To make the dressing: In a medium bowl, combine the orange juice, basil, honey, sesame seeds, and scallions. Slowly whisk in the sesame oil.
5. Toss the salad with the dressing to taste. Garnish with the almonds.

Mushroom-Stuffed Cornish Hens
Serves: 4
Cook Time: 50 minutes

These are a mushroom lover’s dream. The hens change up ordinary roasted chicken, and the mushrooms and herbs pack a ton of flavor. Elegant enough for date night, yet simple enough for a night at home in sweats and a ponytail—now that’s my kind of meal!

4 whole Cornish hens, giblets removed
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 cup chopped red onions
1/2 cup diced apples
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 cups assorted chopped mushrooms
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon chopped rosemary
1/2 teaspoon chopped thyme
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon paprika
Pink Himalayan salt
Ground black pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Rinse and pat dry the Cornish hens.
2. In a medium skillet over high heat, add the coconut oil, onions, apples, garlic, and mushrooms. Sauté for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the mushrooms reduce by almost half. Deglaze the mixture with the vinegar, stirring continuously. Remove from the heat and stir in the rosemary, thyme, and parsley. Cool until warm to the touch.
3. Stuff each bird equally with the mushroom mixture. Season the stuffed hens with the olive oil, paprika, salt, and pepper. Place on a large baking sheet, breast side up, and roast for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.

KRISTIN CAVALLARI Born in Denver, Colorado, the Rocky Mountains couldn’t have predicted what was in store for Kristin Cavallari when she headed west to live with her father and brother in Laguna Beach, CA. Cavallari was in her junior year of high school when the first season of Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County began production for MTV. With her whit, charisma and girl next-door looks, Cavallari was an instant TV sensation, winning over audiences across the nation. She was nominated for a Teen Choice Award in 2006 for “Choice Reality Star.”

After wrapping two successful years on MTV’s hit show, Laguna Beach, Cavallari switched gears to focus on a career in acting. From 2006 – 2009 Kristin starred in numerous films like Van Wilder: Freshman Year (2009), Green Flash (2009), Spring Breakdown (2009), and Wild Cherry (2009), starring alongside Amy Poehler, Rumer Willis, and Rob Schneider.

Still, Cavallari’s fun-loving attitude towards TV continued to shine, and was apparent when she landed a guest role on CBS’s hit show CSI: NY in 2008 and ABC’s The Middle. Other gigs under Cavallari’s belt include Veronica Mars, a lead role in Teddy Geiger’s “For You I Will (Confidence)” music video and Gavin Degraw’s video for his single, “In Love with a Girl.”

In May of 2009, Cavallari confirmed that she would be joining the cast of the mega-popular MTV reality series, The Hills. Already a smash hit, Kristin appeared in the mid-season finale before continuing on as the reality-drama’s new lead girl and narrator throughout the last two seasons.

In 2010, Kristin joined the fight to aid underprivileged children around the globe, serving as an ambassador of the children’s charity One Kid One World. Cavallari traveled to El Salvador where she dedicated personal time towards rebuilding schools in local communities. Continuing her humanitarian efforts, Kristin made her way to Kenya in early 2011 for yet another extraordinary and successful project with One Kid One World. In early 2011, Kristin combined her passion for fashion and love for charity on a new passion project. She teamed up with ShoeDazzle to design a spring shoe with proceeds benefiting One Kid One World.

Her new spring shoe, named Bardot, became available for the first time in the spring of 2011. Cavallari joined the season 13 cast of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. With her strong wit, charm and loveable charisma, Kristin competed against the likes of David Arquette, Chaz Bono and Nancy Grace for the DWTS Season 13 trophy. The bombshell reality star received a standing ovation for her Samba performance with partner Mark Ballas, before she was undeservingly voted off the hit show in week 3.

In 2012, Kristin debuted a shoe collection, Kristin Cavallari by Chinese Laundry. The popular collection was designed hands-on by Cavallari and was carried in several Nordstrom department stores across the country.

In late 2013 Kristin returned to TV for FX’s The League for her second cameo appearance on the show.

In February 2016, Cavallari debuted her first book, Balancing In Heels: My Journey to Health, Happiness, and Making It All Work. In her book, Cavallari shares how she balances all aspects of her busy life with style and grace. From 8356 Fountain Ave. Ste. E2, West Hollywood CA 90069 O: 323.654.0001 EMC I BOWERY outlining health and wellness, food, fitness, fashion, and her success as a businesswoman to more private matters of family and motherhood, Kristin leaves no stone unturned. Shortly after its release, Balancing in Heels hit the New York Times best-seller list.

After several successful partnership opportunities, Kristin craved the creative freedom and fulfillment of founding her own company and in 2017, Uncommon James was born. The jewelry line and lifestyle brand has gained recognition from industry authorities such as JCK and WWD. Her spring jewelry line for Uncommon James, sold out the first week of releasing. That same week, Kristin debuted her passion project and first cookbook True Roots - filled with hundreds of recipes that are free of refined sugar, dairy free and gluten free. Two days after its release, True Roots hit the New York Times best-seller list – making this Kristin’s second book to receive this honor. With the success of her jewelry line and cookbook, Kristin launched Uncommon James home goods. That same day, Kristin opened her first Uncommon James flagship store in Nashville. Expanding her love for kids clothing, she launched Little James at the end of 2018.

In 2018, Kristin made her long awaited return to reality TV with the hit E! docuseries, Very Cavallari. The series followed Kristin as she opened the flagship store and Nashville headquarters of her rapidly growing fashion and lifestyle brand Uncommon James. Throughout the three seasons, the series documented Uncommon James and the brand’s expansion to stores in Los Angeles and Chicago.

Kristin has shown no signs of stopping as a busy mother of three to Camden, Jaxon and Saylor. Up next, Cavallari will release her highly-anticipated second cookbook, True Comfort, in the Fall of 2020.

3.0 out of 5 stars That’s my favorite recipe from allrecipes
By Whitney Stevens on May 6, 2018
I was very excited for a book with dairy free gf options.

I first open book- to zesty quinoa and what do you know? That’s my favorite recipe from Word for word exact same recipe. So that was awkward- unless Kristin wrote that recipe 5++ years ago on

Moving past that, I made the choc chip cookies- says 15-18 mins and I checked on them at 10 minutes and my cookie sheet had turned into a massive cookie pizza thin as a cracker. I will say the cookie dough was very good at least. Yes I followed the recipe!

Overall it seems like this cook book is a picture book of Kristin- I have never seen so many pictures of a person in a cookbook. Very conceited like and sort of awkward.

Anyways some good simple healthy recipes, especially if you have kids, but I haven’t tried those yet.
