Slow-cooker Paleo Pardise Carnitas

I know. I’ve been almost as elusive as an unicorn that farts skittles. Rarely seen, except by those geekery-minded. One of the coldest winters I can remember is upon us. Sure, we’re not getting blasted with snow like Boston is, so at least it isn’t that bad. My New England friends seem to be gettingContinue Reading

Vegetarian Tikka Masala Curry

Wow! We’ve been missing in action for some time! New things have been made, but new things haven’t been posted, which makes me a sad panda. I’ve been wanting to share the experience of creating a meat-less, paleo recipe for Thanksgiving. Life has been so busy that I haven’t gotten a moment to share createdContinue Reading

Tropical Plantain Paradise

Tropical Plantain Paradise

You know what’s really annoying? Having a broken finger with torn tendons on your non-dominant hand. When the Hubster and I went on our vacation in October, I broke my finger playing football in the pool at the place where we were staying. I never realized just how much I use that hand, and howContinue Reading

Autumn Moroccan Beef Stew

Autumn Moroccan Beef Stew

With the first days of Autumn upon us, languid Summer heat is fading into chilly breezes, blankets of fog, and trees full of fire. Inclement Fall weather always brings out the inner rebel in me who refuses to allow the last days of summer to end, fervently wearing flip-flops and capris until my teeth chatterContinue Reading

Allergy-friendly Seasame and Flax Seed “Pad Thai” Bars

Allergy-friendly Seasame and Flax Seed “Pad Thai” Bars

HOLY SIRACHA, BATMAN! Forget every other kind of snack bar. If you like spicy, you need these. NOW. These bars evolved from taking our savory toasted flax and sesame seed bars, spreading sunflower butter on them, and topping with a few dabs of siracha sauce. Rather than do that every time, I concluded that bakingContinue Reading

(Collard) Green Leaf Chicken Rolls

(Collard) Green Leaf Chicken Rolls

So, I lied. I said that I wasn’t an avid pinner on Pinterest. In the last few weeks, that has changed. I’ve been pinning things left and right, mostly teaching ideas, funny cat pictures, and things I’d make if I could crochet. A few weeks ago, I saw an explosion on my Pinterest wall ofContinue Reading

Siracha-Cha-Cha Roasted Chicken Legs (Siracha, Garlic, Ginger, Honey)

Siracha-Cha-Cha Roasted Chicken Legs (Siracha, Garlic, Ginger, Honey)

The Hubster loves chicken legs. Loves them. If he was stuck on a deserted island, with only three choices for food, chicken legs would be one of them. When I cook chicken legs for him, the Hubster rips into them like I imagine a T-rex would. I don’t hear much out of him, except forContinue Reading

“Oatmeal Raisin Cookie” Sesame, Flax, and Chia Seed Bars

“Oatmeal Raisin Cookie” Sesame, Flax, and Chia Seed Bars

Wow! After finally having some success in making a minimal ingredient, healthy snack bar that was allergy-friendly (to me), I was definitely inspired to continue this creative snack journey and bake up something to satisfy the paleo sweet tooth. Anyone who’s cut refined sugar out of their diet, or is in the process of doingContinue Reading

Savory Toasted Sesame-Flax Seed Snack Bars

Savory Toasted Sesame-Flax Seed Snack Bars

I was issued a challenge by a friend of mine during the spring of this year. She wanted me to make healthy snack bars that could be made for much cheaper than the Sweet Seeds bars that she tasted in Canada. I accepted the challenge, though it would be a little while before I couldContinue Reading

Hubster’s Humungous Buffalo Chicken Portabella Burgers

Hubster’s Humungous Buffalo Chicken Portabella Burgers

The Hubster and I have been busy people of late! Death Defying Diet has been quiet for a few weeks due to both of our day-jobs becoming very time-consuming as well as preparing to find a new place to live. Currently, we are working out of a teeny tiny kitchen that barely holds two peopleContinue Reading
