Orange Chicken Yum-yum

Orange Chicken Yum-yum

Mmm! Orange Chicken Yum-yum; let’s make some! The Hubster often works well into late evening, which means that I want something that is easy to prepare if I’m going to wait to eat dinner with him. Which is usually the case as neither one of us enjoys eating dinner alone. Both of us came fromContinue Reading

Slow-cooker Paleo Pardise Carnitas

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

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

(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

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

Salad Topper: Cast-Iron Summer Chicken Breasts

Salad Topper: Cast-Iron Summer Chicken Breasts

With summer’s arrival came the never-ending procession of delicious salads with Spinach (and sometimes Kale) as the base. Being allergic to lettuce isn’t a bad thing since nutritionally spinach and kale knock lettuce down and throw it out of the ring. What kinds of salads have we had? A mixture of any of the following!Continue Reading

Baba Ganouj Faux Mac and Cheese

Baba Ganouj Faux Mac and Cheese

I’m not an avid Pinterest pinner. I glance at it on occasion, and pin teaching ideas more than anything else. Every now and then, I’ll admit that an awesome food picture crosses the screen, and I find myself thinking, “Ooh. That sounds interesting.” That’s sort of the case here. Sort of. I use it quiteContinue Reading

Hubster’s Garam Masala Spiced Chicken Sliders with Zuchinni Pancakes

Hubster’s Garam Masala Spiced Chicken Sliders with Zuchinni Pancakes

The Hubster and I love ground chicken. It’s lean, mostly easy to prepare, and absolutely scrumptious when paired with the right spices. One night, I was recovering from an especially bad migraine due to a bad storm rolling through. So dinner fell upon the Hubster to create and prepare. He decided to whip up someContinue Reading
