  • Creamy Leek Soup Recipe – Dairy-Free

    The autumn months are here. Longer nights. Colder days. It’s getting to be soup weather. (Though, I love soup all year long.) This creamy, really simple dish is modeled after vichyssoise, a silky soup made with potatoes and cream or milk. My friend Claudette made me her Paleo version this 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…

    Easy Paleo Lamb Sliders

    The other day, I was really craving a Greek salad (score for salad cravings, right?!). I had all the veggie components in the fridge, but I definitely wanted to top it with something meaty, so I came up with a quick batch of lamb burgers. In the end, I wound 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…

    Paleo Carnitas Egg Muffins

    Breakfast muffins are a really easy way to use up leftover cooked meat and make for portable protein as well. I woke up the other day, threw these together and considered them tasty enough to post on the blog. Use any kind of cooked shredded meat (or even ground meat) 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…

    Paleo Plantain Beef Pie

    Paleo Plantain Beef Pie…holy cow! After I put this dish in the oven on Sunday afternoon, I had to go down the street to the market for a couple ingredients for another recipe. I came back 15 minutes later to the most amazing smells wafting out of my apartment. This read more…

    Artichoke Fennel Salad

    This is a light salad chock full of tasty veggies that’s perfect for pairing with chicken or fish. The fennel is crispy, the artichoke hearts are tangy, and the parsley makes it fresh. This is easy to double and take to a party. Prep time: 10 min     Cook time: 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…

    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…

    Italian Sausage Ragout

    I’m all about one-pot cooking because it’s simple and easy with minimal clean-up. Agree? Originally I intended to make chili, and then this recipe took on a complete mind of its own. Sometimes I do that and the results are often great (and once in a while, completely awful). What read more…

    Slow Cooker Puerco Pibil

    Pork shoulder, citrus and spices come together in this super-easy crock pot dish that I guarantee will be a huge punch of flavor. I adapted the recipe from one I found on a pressure cooker website and had to modify the achiote paste portion using dry ingredients from scratch because 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…

    Paleo Noodle Bowl Recipe

    After a brief hiatus – traveling back to the States and returning to reality – I’m back with a tasty new recipe. This meal was inspired by 1) Patton Oswalt’s stand up comedy routine on KFC’s “eating my lunch in a single bowl”  and 2) every noodle dish that you read more…

    Cucumber Tomato Bites Recipe

    Every once in a while, I miss crackers and it’s most evident when it comes time for parties or get-togethers. It always seems cheese and crackers and different variations of it are more than plentiful on plates and platters, circulating around and tempting me. These tasty bites use cucumber as read more…
