Eggplant lasagna can compete toe-to-toe with the noodle-based original. There are a few extra steps to consider, and never hesitate to try this with your traditional family recipe. While I’m not a huge fan of heavy doses of soft cheese […]
One of the greatest kitchen gadgets I’ve discovered since going “mostly” paleo is the vegetable spiralizer. These are pretty affordable, work easily and can be configured to make different thicknesses of veggie “noodles”. “Noodle” Ingredients – PER SERVING 1 large […]
Ingredients 1 cup onion, small chop 1 cup celery, small chop 1 cup carrots, small chop 6 cloves garlic, minced 1 tsp oregano 1/2 tsp red pepper flake (adjust or exclude for spice tolerance) 1 tsp fennel seed, ground 64 […]
When you’re done eating yet another grilled chicken breast and need a healthy, hearty option for flavor, this Albondigas soup is a great solution for a relatively fast meal or appetizer. Prep Time: Approximately 15 minutes (pre-chopped, pre-minced options help) Cook […]
Ingredients 4 sprigs fresh rosemary or 2 tablespoons jarred 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped 3 tbsp Extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling 1 whole chicken 2 tbsp Herbs de Provance Salt 3-4 tbsp melted butter 1 large onion, chopped into 1/2-inch dice 4 cups carrots, chopped […]
Never in a million years would I have considered braising a head of lettuce, let alone serving it as a vegetable side. However, Julia Child’s presentation here looks fantastic. Its important to note that she didn’t use a massive basketball of Iceburg. […]
I adore Julia Child and this is one of the first episodes that solidified that she would forever change my life. And its all as simple as the egg.
Just squealed and then cried a little.
Pepper-crusted New York, Buffalo cauliflower and sautéed squash and zucchini. Paleo THIS!
It may not look like much but Train wreck Thursday’s pan-seared tri-tip and mushrooms with home style sweet potato fries and roasted broccoli definitely hit the spot. Full and friggin’ tired.
Spiraled zucchini and squash “noodles” with mostly-paleo bolognese. Even Jude was into the zucchini noodles. Granted, he’s wearing most of them. But that’s why they call them baby steps.
Back to Paleo-ish meals. Pan seared chicken breast in lemon caper dijon, sauteed Korean squash and onions, roasted cauliflower. Full and happy.
Tonight’s midnight snack: baked egg over a column of roast turkey with a raspberry and garlic chili reduction.
I happened upon a random image of bacon strips covered in pancake. Too insanely good to pass up, I decided that I would forego trying someone else’s recipe and attempt my own. Right off the bat it looked like it […]
I’m back on the Paleo bandwagon after about a year or so off. I’m trying something new this time around by adding “juicing” to my regular diet. I’m not interested in a majority of the fruits that vendors tend to […]
Grilled chicken, roasted Chayote squash and pan-seared asparagus: it was a great combination for a warm summer night. With less than 15 minutes of prep and 25 minutes of cook time, its a quick and healthy meal. I stumbled upon […]
It was 6:30 in the morning and I had been up for hours. As much as I love to grab a quick bite out before work, I’m tired and I’m starving. I’ve been meaning to experiment for a while with […]
Summer is in full swing and we need to store up a few dishes that make for quick leftover meals since I have less time to cook due to our busy outdoor schedule. Ideally it will be quick to reheat […]
Cooking with butter… its the final stronghold of my non-paleo cooking days. Replacing it with oils as an ingredient just doesn’t cut it for me. There has to be something better. Today I came across Earth Mother’s “Organic Coconut Spread” […]
My future mother-in-law was in town and I needed to come up with something light and flavorful for an early summer dinner. Jaimi brought home a couple of lemons from a client’s garden and I’ve had a bottle of chardonnay […]
I have to admit that I never liked brussel sprouts. My first experience with them was around the age of 5 and one bite into the dish, I was done. Not much changed until Jaimi cooked a pork tenderloin for […]
We love Mexican food. Period. I could eat it 3 times a day, 7 days a week and be a happy, happy man. When we decided to go paleo, the first thing that brought me to near collapse was the […]
Sometimes I’m just tired of being hungry. I want something hearty that will stick to my ribs and keep me bloated all night long, goshdarnit. Meatloaf. Meat, in a pile of loaf. ThaswhatImtalkinabout. Yet the paleo solution requires some pretty […]
My youngest son, Caed, is 4. The greatest thing Jaimi and I ever did for ourselves was to take him and his brother to Tanaka Farms for a vegetable picking tractor ride where he and Rylan promised to try every vegetable […]
We’ve tried quite a few substitutes for mashed potatoes around here with moderate success. Yams have gone over the best, with cauliflower ranking the lowest. We were stunned at how good the Japanese Sweet Potato turned out. A-ma-zing. The recipe […]
One downfall of being married to a physical trainer is that she’s up and out of the house long before the sun rises. Since I’m the cook that means I either have to get up and fix breakfast, prepare beforehand, […]
Summer is officially here! While I grill throughout the year, I’m always thrilled by the availability of fresh hearty vegetables that are perfect for grilling. For our Memorial Day, after the gardening was done, it was time to fire up […]
Coming home to find there’s next to nothing in the fridge but a few sparse ingredients that may – or may not – go together always adds a layer of excitement to the evening. This was such a night. I […]
I was concerned that committing to a paleo diet with kids would be a problem. I don’t reasonably expect that they’ll always eat paleo, but when they’re with me, they do about half of their meals. We discovered this gem […]
I was wandering through the grocery store trying to assemble a few ingredients for a paleo meatloaf when the thought of a paleo-friendly Shepherd’s Pie struck me. Why not? Meat and vegetables sounded great. What to use in place of […]
I was so excited to whip this up as an experiment using a bed of roasted kale as a salad. The flavors turned out well and we look forward to having this again. The talapia is a firm white, mild […]
