Recipes that the Hubster and I have developed that are among our favorite to cook.

Summer Roasted Eggplant

Summer Roasted Eggplant

Summer is here! You know what that means? Lots of local produce that herald a change in the seasons–like eggplants (aka aubergines)! The Hubster and I absolutely love eggplant. We’ll get up bright and early to head to farmer’s markets just so that we can get the best pickings of the day. We always lookContinue 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

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

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
