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

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

Recipe Review and Adaptation: Roasted Summer Vegetables

Recipe Review and Adaptation: Roasted Summer Vegetables

When the Hubster and I first decided to go Paleo almost a year ago, we were winding down a summer of delicious produce. While cooking meats wasn’t too much of a challenge, I found vegetables to be a bit of one. It’s not that I don’t eat my veggies, mind you. The challenge was findingContinue 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

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

Paleo Beef Barbacoa

Paleo Beef Barbacoa

Not too long ago, the Hubster and I had some friends over for a dinner that’s been a year in the making. Since this was such a special occasion, we decided to go all out! We made a delicious dinner with paleo-friendly drinks and a yummy dessert! My friend had requested that we make beefContinue Reading

Stuffed Cubanelle Peppers with a Kick served over top of Chipotle Mushrooms with Green Beans

Stuffed Cubanelle Peppers with a Kick served over top of Chipotle Mushrooms with Green Beans

It’s Valentine’s Day! I’m bucking the trend of food bloggers everywhere and posting a recipe that is decidedly un-Valentines-like. The reasoning is, what most people want their significant others to have is a long and healthy life. So instead of chocolate-y, fattening, indulgent ingredients that may or may not contain hidden additives, I’m providing health-mindedContinue Reading
