  • Paleo Sweet Chili Dipping Sauce

    Dipping sauces can take the same basic meal template and jazz things up to keep you from suffering from FBS (Food Boredom Syndrome). Plain chicken and broccoli again? Drizzle on some Sweet Chili Dipping Sauce. Need an accompaniment for some beautiful cooked, chilled shrimp? This one does the trick, too. read more…

Voting for all your favorite Paleo blogs, cookbooks, podcasts and products only read more…

    Citrus-Garlic Marinated Steak

    I’ve just returned from a week-long trip to London and Paris, hence how quiet I’ve been on the site here. If you’ve left a comment or sent an email, it will take a bit longer than usual but rest assured I’ll get back to you. I love traveling and discovering read more…

    Garlic Ginger Brussels Sprouts

    More veggies, please! This is a pretty simple side dish that compliments virtually any main. To save cooking time, I sliced the Brussels sprouts thinly, but if you’re crunched you could either buy them pre-sliced (I’ve seen them at Trader Joe’s) or halve and steam them, then throw them in read more…

    Paleo Peach Mango Ginger Chutney

    When I made my Coconut Wild Boar Burgers, I was searching for the perfect accompaniment. Peaches were calling to me because they’re in season and juicy and pair really well with pork, so I created this Paleo peach chutney to put on top almost like a relish. Chutney, traditional to read more…

    Roasted Salsa Verde Recipe

      This Roasted Salsa Verde recipe will mean you don’t ever have to buy store-bought salsa again! Every once in a while, I buy prepared salsa from the store. A bottle of organic salsa verde (green salsa) made its way into my cart recently and though I’d scanned the label read more…

    Simple Shrimp Ceviche

    Can I interest you in a meal that cooks itself? Yes? I thought so! It’s not too good to be true, it’s just ceviche – a dish of seafood that’s “cooked” using citrus juices and served up with ingredients like tomato, jalapeño and avocado. YUM. Last year, I posted a recipe read more…

    Paleo Tzatziki Sauce

    I’m on a dipping sauce kick lately…probably because they make food more fun. I love sauces for their ability to easily add another dimension of flavor to meals. A few weeks ago, I made a Paleo version of an Indian cucumber mint raita and knew that with a few simple read more…

    Slow Cooker Caribbean Oxtails

    What the heck is oxtail? Most of what we – and by we I mean Americans – call oxtail is actually tail sections from a cow. It contains a center bone and can be a bit fatty, but when cooked low and slow, the meat becomes super tender. Sounds like read more…

    Lamb Kofta (Meat on a Stick)

    Recently, I ate dinner at a restaurant that served Azerbaijani ground lamb on a skewer, and the taste exploded on my tongue. If you need a geography refresher, Azerbaijan is just to the east of Armenia (which is just to the east of Turkey). The meat was perfectly flavored and read more…

    Garlic Pistachio Broccoli Rabe

    Before we dive into this recipe, let’s learn a little bit about this misunderstood vegetable: broccoli rabe (pronounced like “rob”) isn’t actually broccoli at all! Rather, it’s closely related to mustard greens. It’s also commonly called rapini in Italian cuisine. So confusing, right? I saw broccoli rabe hiding among the read more…

    Butternut Squash Lasagna

    Disclaimer: nothing can take the place of real noodles. I know – le sigh. However, if you’re willing to put that aside, this recipe is pretty awesome and will get you close to a lasagna-like dish without any gluten or dairy. Win! I’m currently back in Scotland visiting, and a read more…

    Shrimp with Garlic and Artichokes

    I absolutely love shrimp. There. Confession. What I don’t love is cleaning all the icky shells off and taking the vein out, but it’s a small price to pay for these delicious little morsels. I usually look for wild-caught shrimp when it’s on sale and try to avoid farmed when read more…

    Indian Pineapple Cauliflower Rice

    A couple weeks back, I went to an Oscar party with the wonderful folks from Invictus and had to think of an Oscar-themed dish to bring along. Originally, I was joking around with Tiger Burgers (a nod to Life of Pi and Richard Parker) but then I kept thinking Pi-neapple. read more…

    Paleo Banh Mi Sliders

    Banh Mi is basically a Vietnamese sandwich made with French bread and layers of amazing flavors: sweet, salty, tangy, umami (savory) and spicy. [Side note: “Whaaaat?! A Vietnamese sandwich with French bread?” Yes. A quick Google search of French Indochina will give you all the historical details]. Vegetables, meat and read more…

    Paleo Cabbage Rolls (Golumbki)

    Paleo Cabbage Rolls are like comfort food to me! These satisfying little rolls of meat and cabbage take me back to my childhood, and having a Polish grandmother meant that golumbki were often on the menu when we went to visit. When I made this recipe, I instantly reminisced about read more…
