What’s up mayo lovers?! 

Can I call you that? 

Maybe it’s the midwest girl in me but I am team mayo ALL THE WAY and I’m so excited to show my fellow mayo lovers (too much? I’ll stop 😝) how to make this crazy easy + delicious homemade avocado oil mayonnaise.

I’m just going to start by saying that there is definitely a learning curve when it comes to cleaning up the ingredients in your pantry + refrigerator. 

It took my awhile to sort all all the swaps and ingredients that make up a healthy kitchen. One thing that I learned in this process is that not all mayonnaise is created equal! It’s one of those condiments that has a super wide range between totally inflammatory and full of healthy and nourishing ingredients.

And when given those options, I’ll always take the second!

Especially when it’s also basically the best tasting mayo that you’ll ever have 😉 Continue reading

I have been wanting to share a recipe for this for awhile because queso is one of those delicious snacks that has the power to make a person SO happy. Amirite?! And I think we can all agree that everybody needs more happy food in their lives.

Maybe it’s because dipping things into creamy, gooey cheesy flavored goodness is close to a spiritual experience, or maybe it’s just because it’s so damn delicious. Either way – I’M IN and I hope you are too!

Because you can have a queso party for one, but it’s a lot more fun if we all show up! 😉

Friends! Finally the recipe for the best paleo banana bread is ready to be shared with the world. If you follow along regularly with Nyssa’s Kitchen you might know that I am not the most skilled baker. It’s something that I ENJOY doing, but I’ve never really had the knack for creating my own baking recipes.

So when I decide to share a recipe for a baked good with you all, I test it at least (what feels like) a million times. Because getting it right is important. Especially when it’s something as yummy and esteemed (treasured) as banana bread.

So I’ve been working on this recipe for at least a month, probably literally made 12 loaves (friends and co-workers are all loving us and our banana bread gifts), to get it just right. And we’ve made it. The recipe is ready and I cannot wait for you guys to get your hands on this banana bread. It’s tender, moist, the perfect texture, just the right amount of sweet, and SO GOOD. Or as the name proclaims, the best 😉
