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

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

Cucumber Carrot Slaw

Cucumber Carrot Slaw

Summer’s here! With the addition of dense, summer heat, meals change to outdoor grilling and side dishes that are light on the stomach. Weeks are filled with barbeques, salads, and slaws galore! Cook-outs abound everywhere! I don’t know about you, but when summer rolls around, I can’t get enough of out-door grilling. I like simple,Continue 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

Paleo-Conscious Lemon Honey Glazed Carrots

Paleo-Conscious Lemon Honey Glazed Carrots

I love carrots! Fresh organic carrots straight from the garden are my favorite. Baby carrots aren’t too bad, but honestly, I like the regular kind. One of the side dishes I remember my grandmother and my mother making was glazed carrots, so good, so sweet and full of processed sugar with butter as a componentContinue Reading

Paleo Scotch Eggs

Paleo Scotch Eggs

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

Earthy Slow-Cooker Balsamic Chicken

Earthy Slow-Cooker Balsamic Chicken

I believe that I am on a bit of a chicken kick here lately. Don’t worry; I won’t be on it forever. I have a seafood and pork recipes just waiting for me to experiment with. Plus, I need to tackle desserts. Since, I’ve been wanting to try out the different balsamic tastes that canContinue Reading

Hungarian Cabbage Rolls with Tomato-Cranberry Sauce

Hungarian Cabbage Rolls with Tomato-Cranberry Sauce

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

“Cool Robbie” Soup

“Cool Robbie” Soup

The Hubster and I went to visit his mama this past weekend. We brought her something paleo-friendly to eat for dinner, which she thought was different, but she liked it. (She also knows that her daughter-in-law can cook and keep her baby fed.) She marveled over how much weight my Dorky Hubby has lost, andContinue Reading
