Coffee & Black Pepper Rubbed Tenderloin Roast

Coffee Rubbed Tenderloin | StrictlyDelicious.com

I don’t know about you, but there’s something about eating beef tenderloin that makes me feel so indulgent and luxurious. Maybe it’s the stigma surrounding “filet mignon,” that it’s a special occasion meat saved for adults, romantic dinners, and candlelight. (Not to mention the price!) Maybe it’s that pretty pink meat that’s butter soft and takes so…

First things first, let’s talk chef’s knives. Do you have a chef’s knife that you absolutely love?

Thyme Balsamic Lamb Meatballs with Roasted Grapes

How was your week? I think my shoulders are so tight and tense, they now permanently reside somewhere around my ears. (If anyone knows a good masseuse and/or chiropractor in the Richmond-area, please send me their information!)

But this low-carb, roasted vegetable stuffing might just convince you that bread is not a necessary part of the equation. This 4-ingredient stuffing is so simple, easy, and full of cozy flavor. Caramelized roasted cauliflower comes together with…

Vegan Roasted Cauliflower & Greens Soup

A filling, velvety green soup that features roasted cauliflower and slow-cooked greens. And it's vegan to boot! via StrictlyDelicious.com

Mmm… There’s nothing like a thick, creamy, stick-to-your-bones soup on a cold day. Chunky broth based soups are really great and all, but give me a velvety smooth, luxurious soup and you’ve made me a very happy girl. And if that soup just so happens to be vegan, gluten-free, and paleo… Well shoot, I’ll take…

Honey Roasted Pears with Sea Salt and Rosemary Whipped Cream | StrictlyDelicious.com

I think autumn in Richmond is my favorite time of year. (Sorry spring!) The days are brights and sunny with no clouds in the beautiful periwinkle-colored sky. The nights and mornings are chilly, perfect for pulling out my beloved fuzzy blankets, sweaters, scarves, and slipper socks. It’s the time to daydream about mulled cider, pumpkin chili,…
