In weekly installments, otherwise known as TwoFaced Tuesday, Melissa, blogger at CupcakesOMG, and I will choose a shared ingredient. Then, using our own culinary talents, we’ll make whatever delicious paleo dish we can think of. TwoFaced will be a dual blogging adventure. If you start here, you will finish there and vice versa.

Have you ever read Like Water for Chocolate? For those of you who haven’t taken fourteen too many literature classes, it is a love story woven with recipes and magic set near the Mexican border. The protagonist Tita, cooks with all of her heart. Sounds magical right? Her curse? Every emotion she is feeling while cooking is baked directly into that dish. At first bite, her guests are overcome by that same emotion. It’s great. There’s a film too.
If you were over for dinner last night, enjoying the following recipe, centraled around the TwoFaced ingredient of red onion, you would be a raging hormonal bitch by the end of the meal. Because that’s exactly how I felt during this rather painless process.
Every dice, slice, sizzle, whisk and pour was performed with seething anger.
Luckily, you weren’t over for dinner last night.
James on the other hand…. not so lucky.
