Easy roast duck dinner

March 30, 2012


If you are like me, you get tired of chicken breast dinners.  To change things up, but still keep it simple, I love to cook with duck.  You can cook it the same way you would chicken, but it is all dark meat, so it has a richer moister meat.  I used leg quarters, but […]

paleo chicken and dumplings

March 21, 2012


This is really more of a cool weather recipe, but since I already had all of the ingredients in my fridge, I figured what the heck.  It turned out pretty well, and I’ll probably be making it again.  I’ve listed the ingredients I used this time around, but of course you can add whatever veggies […]

Grilled Kangaroo

March 20, 2012


Yep, that’s right, I said grilled kangaroo!  While kangaroo is pretty exotic to the average American, apparently it is eaten with relative regularity in other countries such as Australia.  Mine was ordered online from, and was a Christmas gift from a good friend of mine.  Since I was completely unsure what to do with […]

Crab cakes

Seared scallops with crispy bacon

March 14, 2012


I love seared scallops, but had never made them at home.  I don’t know what the “season” is for scallops but occasionally, they start carrying them at my local Whole Foods.  When I noticed they were in stock again, I figured now was as good a time as any to try making them at home.  […]

Sun dried tomato pesto over zucchini “noodles”

March 13, 2012


On of my go to meals before becoming paleo/primal was pasta.  Having to give that up has been the biggest challenge for me.  I’ve spent a lot of time looking for a pasta substitute, and have found zucchini to be the best tasting option for me.  I served this at a dinner party recently, and […]
