  • Slow Cooker Chicken Yellow Curry Soup

    Last week on Facebook, I asked which you – fantastic fan – would like more recipes for: veggies, meat or crock pot, and the slow cooker was the winning vote by far. Here’s my guess on why: crock pots do everything for you…except clean up. Yup. It’s true. Put it in read more…

    Ratatouille a la Claudette Recipe

    This Ratatouille rainbow on a plate was inspired by a ratatouille made by my amazing friend Claudette, the owner of Cavegirl Confections (her granola and nut butters are HIGH quality and made with love…and she ships). We got together for dinner last week—with scallops, crab cakes, pork belly and lamb kofta 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…

    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…

    Cold Zucchini Noodle Salad with Tomato and Olives Recipe

    This Cold Zucchini Noodle Salad recipe will give you another creative use for zoodles. I made this simple cold salad by tossing them with a drizzle of olive oil and white balsamic, then serving them with tomato and olives. With warmer weather upon us, this would be a great side 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…

    BLT Bites with Chipotle Mayo Recipe

    Growing up, we used to eat BLT sandwiches a lot and the other day I got a hankering for one, sans bread of course. The BLT Bites with Paleo Chipotle Mayo totally blow regular BLTs out of the water. I used mini muffin tins but you could use regular tins read more…

    Cinco de Mayo Steak Salad Recipe

    Living in San Diego, you could say that Cinco de Mayo is a pretty big deal around these parts. All over the city—and pretty much the rest of the US—folks will be gladly using this holiday to eat vast quantities of guacamole and drink lots of tequila. I hate tequila. 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…

    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…

    Pineapple Avocado Salsa

    Sometimes I get bored of regular salsa, and I’m not one to buy fruit at the market very often – I just don’t fancy it all that much, unless we’re talking about berries in season. Lately, I’ve made a couple of fruit salsas to brighten up some otherwise heavy winter read more…

    Stupid Easy Paleo coming atcha from the beautiful city of Glasgow, Scotland! I’m here visiting for 3 weeks, enjoying the chill of winter (even saw the sun yesterday) and enjoying some R & R. Yesterday we had a lovely Christmas dinner, the centerpiece of which was an amazing 7 lb 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…

    Green Papaya Salad

    I fell in love with Green Papaya Salad on my trip to Bali in 2011. We took a side trip to Nusa Lembongan, a tiny island off the coast of Bali and spent a couple days snorkeling and enjoying maximum relaxation time. While there, we dined outside at a Thai read more…

    Easy Ceviche Recipe

    I’m not sure how authentic this Easy Ceviche is, and frankly all that matters to me is that it’s delicious and simple to make. With warmer weather coming up soon, this cool seafood-based dish is a nice addition to those spring-summer favorites that you may already keep on hand. Ceviche read more…
