Sweet and Spicy Plantain Pie
This is sort of like a Dominican Shepard's Pie, if that existed. It's a super flavorful meat based pie topped with mashed plantains. It's really spicy because I've used Dominican peppers, they are always available at my Ethnic market but you could use any kind of pepper, even a sweet bell pepper if you don't like spicy. I love the way the spicy peppers taste with the sweet plantain mash.

I am so behind on blogging! I was guest posting at Whole30's new recipe instagram, @whole30recipes all week and have not posted here in over a week! So lets catch up!
I love buffalo wings and these are absolutely amazing! You'll want to just rub everything in the sauce/glaze, so you may want to double it! Try to get the buffalo cut little wings, so much more flavor!
Spaghetti Squash with Proscuitto and Basil Cream Sauce
This sauce is the real deal. It tastes just like vodka sauce. It's super creamy and rich. Absolutely no dairy, no vodka and no chemicals involved! I use fresh ingredients that make it taste like real Italian creamy pasta sauce.

Sweet Potato Fritters
I've been making these forever and I don't know why, but I never got the chance to post them. I think I got so caught up with my dessert recipes! These are so easy and so good! They are definitely best fried in bacon grease and I only use that for them. It adds to the flavor and makes them crispy and awesome. Always save your bacon grease! I always have a jar in the fridge. I've added some cooked, chopped bacon to them and that is good too. But I really like them best just like this, and dipped in ranch.

Just pop them in the oven on parchment paper. I love new paleo friendly side dishes, I easily get bored of roasted sweet potatoes and mashed cauliflower. My 3 year old really loves these and I'd even make them as a snack.
This ranch dip never lasts more than 1 day in our house, we all love it. It's great on salad and great as a dip for sweet potato fries, sliced veggies, and these things! I always add fresh herbs from my garden into this dip. My favorites are dill, parsley and cilantro. I'm listing the recipe for the dippers and the ranch dressing, and you will take 2 Tbsp of ranch out to use to make the dippers. The whole thing is so flavorful, they remind me of some crazy TGIFriday's appetizer, minus the chemicals.
