Chicken Zucchini Noodle Pasta aka Mediterranean Christmas Tree

Chicken Zucchini Noodle Pasta aka Mediterranean Christmas Tree

The weather was absolutely phenomenal the day that I put together this dish. There’s something about warm, humid weather that makes me want to chow down on a dish that settles lightly in the stomach, but is filling at the same time. In commemoration of this beautiful day, I decided that I wanted to eatContinue Reading

Spanish Split Pea Soup

Spanish Split Pea Soup

Fair warning: If you’re strict about following a Paleolithic Diet, this recipe is probably not for you! As I’ve stated before many a times, we follow a paleo-conscious lifestyle, teetering between paleo and whole-foods approaches. This path is achieved by cutting a large portion of the paleo no-no’s from our daily food intake. Carbs, grains/gluten,Continue Reading

Soy-free Chicken Teriyaki Stir-Fry

Soy-free Chicken Teriyaki Stir-Fry

The Hubster said something to me the other night that was so ridiculously cute and cheesy that I have to share it. Out of the blue, he comments, “You know, honey, if you were a dinosaur, you would be a dorkasaurus.” I love dinosaurs, especially T-rex with his tiny arms. I love my husband. WhenContinue Reading

Allergy Friendly Chicken Tikka Masala

Allergy Friendly Chicken Tikka Masala

I love Indian food. Love it. I can’t get enough of it, but I’ve had enough of it. Almost every Indian dish out there contains traces of pistachios (cashews or almonds), cardamom, and dairy. Escaping these ingredients is impossible, along with an allergic reaction. Therefore, when it comes to date nights, if we’re craving IndianContinue Reading

Sea Scallops, Mint Mustard “Butter,” and Lemon Fluffed Yams

Not long ago, the Hubster and I had a marvelous date night at a tapas restaurant. One of the little meals that we chose was a fist-sized sea scallop served over top of starches in a delicious flavor combo. The experience lingered with us so much that we were inspired to try to create ourContinue Reading

Spicy Salmon Cakes with Salsa

Spicy Salmon Cakes with Salsa

A food challenge was issued and met — to devise a paleo-conscious salmon cake. Fish, crustaceans, and molluscs, oh my! Fish and Seafood are tricksy things in our household, which made it even more of a face-off. Who would win? The Dorky Missus or the Hubster’s aversion to cooked salmon? Readers may have noticed aContinue Reading

Cast-Iron Dijon Chicken: Dedicated to The Hubster

Cast-Iron Dijon Chicken: Dedicated to The Hubster

This Winter was rough, and Spring has been only slightly better. I would go as far as to say that 2014 has dashed off to a bumpy start. During the ice and snow storms this year, the copious amounts of snow and ice falling made me believe that thawing out will take years rather thanContinue Reading

Bacon and Beef Wrapped Asparagus with Sautéed Swiss Chard

Bacon and Beef Wrapped Asparagus with Sautéed Swiss Chard

Post Production Edit: What in the world? I released this without a prelude? I must be a slacker when I’m sick. Or just very forgetful. I stared at this for the longest time when it went live, trying to figure out what was missing. Hours later…cue lightbulb moment…AH HA! At any rate, the Dorky Missus hasContinue Reading
