  • Beet Ginger Sauerkraut Recipe

    Beet Ginger Sauerkraut has long been on my agenda to make, especially after I picked up a bag from Farmhouse Cultures. It was so delicious, and while buying it pre-made is convenient, it’s far more affordable to make it myself. The beets add a bit of sweetness—plus, the color is fantastic—and read more…

    Homemade Gingerbread Spice Mix

    Homemade Gingerbread Spice Mix is pretty awesome. Why? It has that warm, yummy smell that evokes the holiday season (isn’t it so interesting how smells can conjure up such memories?!). Luckily, Homemade Gingerbread Spice Mix is super simple to make so you can have a taste of the holidays any read more…

    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…

    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…

    Strawberry Vanilla Rhubarb Sauce

    I’ve been on a rhubarb kick lately since it’s in season and easier to find now than at any other time. Rhubarb is a very tart vegetable but is commonly paired with fruit for a sweet counterpoint. I included some chopped dates to lessen the bite, but this sauce is 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…

    Coconut Wild Boar Burger

    Juicy, coconutty (yeah, I made that a word), and smoky with a hint of ginger. YUM. Recently, I picked up a package of ground wild boar meat from Sprouts and was trying to think of something that would go with the peach mango chutney simmering away on my stovetop. Coconut read more…

    Fermented Ginger Carrots

    Fermented ginger carrots will knock your socks off! It’s no secret that I love fermented foods (sauerkraut and kombucha being my favorites) because of their probiotic content, and lately I’ve started to expand my horizons. I went to a farmer’s market recently and saw a jar of fermented ginger carrots read more…

    Paleo Sweet and Sour Sauce Recipe

    This four-ingredient dipping sauce, perfect for chicken, has the right balance of sweet and sour without using any added sugar. Even better, apricots are in season during late spring / early summer so finding them fresh in the market should be easier now than at any other time during the year. 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…

    Thai Coconut Soup (Tom Kha) Recipe

    Thai Coconut Soup is one of my favorite Asian dishes. Usually I have recipe writer’s block. The harder I try to think of something to make, the more I can’t. It’s those times when I buy random ingredients and get home to my pantry and fridge that inspiration strikes. My read more…

    Green Juice

    Seems like juicing is the new make-your-own-kraut craze in the Paleosphere, huh? While I don’t think juice should replace how you consume all your fruits and vegetables [juices contain no fiber and the act of chewing sends powerful signals to your brain that eating is in progress…logical, right?], as a 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…

    Super Bowl Bites: Orange Ginger Chicken Wings

    Stupid Easy Paleo, coming at you with another snack for your Super Bowl party (or any time you damn please). I recently read that chicken wing consumption is at an all-time national high which explains why I couldn’t find any the first time I went to the store. Luckily, my read more…

    Apricot Ginger Applesauce

    I’ll admit, fruit isn’t something I buy a lot of unless it’s fresh berries in the summer. Fact: the smell and taste of brown bananas actually make me queasy. Anyhow, I had a hankering for applesauce again when I saw the pictures of our pork belly meal from a few read more…

    Pork Stuffed Mushrooms

    Sometimes I have no plan when it comes to recipes, and I spend time wandering around the market until inspiration hits like “wha-bam”! This one came to me while standing in Tesco on New Year’s Eve trying to think of something clever to bring to a friend’s house later that read more…
