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

Delicious Slow Cooker Paleo Gumbo with Okra as a Thickener

Delicious Slow Cooker Paleo Gumbo with Okra as a Thickener

I love Cajun cooking. Love it. I miss living along the Gulf coast of Mississippi simply for the fact that I pine for the food terribly. Gumbo. Jamabalaya. Po’ Boys. Boiled Mud Bugs. Red beans and rice. Dirty rice. Crawfish Étouffée. Cornmeal Crusted Chicken. Savory Cajun Shrimp and Grits. Yummy. (Am I making you hungry,Continue Reading

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

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

Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin with Spicy Mustard-Coffee Rub

Due to my many food allergies and sensitivities, the Hubster and I catered our own wedding reception. Between our dishes and a few made by family and friends, we took care of two of the most important things. The first was making sure that I had no reason whatsoever to be sick the day afterContinue Reading

When the Hubster and I were dating, around Saint Patrick’s day, we discovered that there was a genuine Irish pub in a town close by, run by immigrants from Ireland and their family. As somebody with Irish heritage, I was quite excited by this development! I would taste genuine Irish food (or as close toContinue Reading

Slow-Cooker Carolina Pulled Pork Goes Paleo

Slow-Cooker Carolina Pulled Pork Goes Paleo

Currently, I live in the south. Not the deep south, mind you. In fact, many southerner’s wouldn’t consider my location “The South”, even if it is south of the Mason Dixon line, and would probably laugh in my face. However, I used to live in the North. My family is full of Yanks with someContinue Reading

Slow Cooker Spicy Andouille Sausage and Cabbage

Slow Cooker Spicy Andouille Sausage and Cabbage

Hey, you know the way that many people feel about bacon? That they love it so much that they’d marry it if they could? Instead, they wear dorky t-shirts proclaiming their love for all things bacon. Well, I feel that way…about Andouille sausage. I freaking love Andouille sausage. It’s one of the few culinary joysContinue Reading

So I’m sick in bed with my first cold of the teaching season. Honestly, I’m a bit surprised that I haven’t had one by now. Everyone’s son or daughter is coming down with the cold. Schools just seem to be huge petri dishes at this time of the year. I wanted to make something differentContinue Reading

So, the other day, I’m in my car, driving around for work-related adventures. I don’t listen to the radio, and I often have a CD going in the car. I know, a CD and not an iPod…I’m so paleolithic. Har har, see what I did there? I’m such a neanderthal, living in the paleo era.Continue Reading
