    Paleo Chick-fil-A Recipe

    This Paleo Chick-fil-A is so tasty, and the secret’s in the pickle juice! It basically brines the chicken which makes it super moist and tender. The recipe easily doubles. When researching this recipe (because, you know, it’s got to be somewhat true to the original), I came across loads of read more…

    Sweet and Savory Blueberry Tortilla

    Blueberries and eggs were meant to be together! This is a riff on a Spanish tortilla – a cooked egg dish with potatoes and onion. Instead of those traditional ingredients, I used the technique of making a tortilla and simply added blueberries, coconut aminos and a few spices, and the 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…

    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…

    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…

      This Easy Oven-Baked Meatballs recipe is super simple to make, and baking them in the oven frees you up to do the rest of your food prep or other tasks. Try varying the type of ground meat or go with what’s available. I made them with lean ground pork because it read more…

    Smoky Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Thighs

    One thing that continues to fascinate me is how it’s virtually impossible to get American-style bacon here in Glasgow. Sure, there are rashers and even streaky bacon (which looks like American bacon) but nothing tastes quite the same. It doesn’t have any of the sugar normally added to the bacon in read more…

    Rosemary Garlic Roasted Potatoes

    White potatoes have been making their way onto my menu more recently as a post-workout (PWO) carb replacement. I know…Paleo purists are probably somewhat horrified right now, but the fact remains that potatoes of all kinds contain glucose which is preferable to fructose (the sugar found in fruit) for muscle 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…

    Apple Pork Breakfast Sausage Patties Recipe

    This Apple Pork Breakfast Sausage Patties recipe will put breakfast sausage back on the menu! I’m not sure if you’ve read the back of a package of sausages lately but there can be some really weird ingredients in them, including gluten and all sorts of preservatives. The best solution is read more…

    Mushroom and Fig Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

    Every once in a while, I like to show you all a recipe that is a bit fancy but has several options for making it faster and easier…this Mushroom and Fig Stuffed Pork Tenderloin is no exception. If you’ve been stuck in a protein rut lately (I’m guilty of eating read more…

    Shrimp and Greens

    The idea for this recipe came from the back of a Trader Joe’s bag of mixed cooking greens…I modified it by cutting back on the amount of olives called for as well as the addition of the shrimp and sun dried tomatoes. This meal has everything I like: it’s fast, read more…

    Stuffed Acorn Squash Recipe

    As autumn is upon us, the selection and quality of hard squashes available in the store or the farmer’s market is rapidly increasing. No time like the present to pick one up and start rotating in some seasonal veggies. (Seriously, it may be time to start backing away from tomatoes, read more…

    Holy Guacamole Salad

    I’ll admit it: I love the Food Network. While I’m more drawn to shows like Chopped! and Iron Chef America, I decided to watch an old episode of Barefoot Contessa yesterday. Normally, Ina’s food isn’t really up my alley but her recipe for Guacamole Salad spoke to me right away. read more…
