Moroccan inspired stewed rabbit

April 29, 2012


I adapted this recipe from an around the world cookbook I’ve had for years.  The original calls for chicken and honey, but I love changing up my proteins, so I’ve substituted the rabbit.  I also left out the honey and added some spice after deciding the original recipe was too sweet.  If you want it […]

Herb roasted chicken and vegetables

April 25, 2012


When I was growing up, Sunday dinner meant some type of roasted meat, usually chicken.  I’ve made this dinner into a one pot meal by simply tossing the veggies in the same pan as the chicken.  This time I used some of my favorite spring vegetables like baby zucchini and asparagus, but you could always […]

Paleo wild boar pozole

April 24, 2012


Pozole is a Mexican comfort food similar to chili.  It is traditionally made with hominy which isn’t paleo, so I substituted hearts of palm which actually have a similar mild, sweet flavor.  I also used wild boar stew meat rather than the more traditional pork shoulder.  This gave the stew a bit more flavor and […]

Herb crusted lamb chops with pinot noir sauce

April 17, 2012


I adapted this recipe from one I found at  I didn’t grow up eating lamb, but as an adult I’ve acquired a taste for it, and figured I may as well attempt cooking it.  For this recipe I used 100% grass fed chops, and for a first attempt I’d say they turned out pretty […]

Curried duck and butternut bisque

April 16, 2012


I’ve adapted this recipe several times from the original shrimp butternut bisque I had at Brigsten’s in New Orleans last spring.  Over time I swapped the shrimp for duck, and then had to make it paleo.  This is a great cool weather soup that can be served a second course, or as an entree. 1 […]

Strawberry omelet

April 13, 2012


One of my favorite things about warmer weather, is that with it comes fresh berries.  I love all berries, but strawberries are my favorite.  I put them in everything from salads to cobblers.   I love this omelet as a departure from the traditional ham and cheese or mushroom and pepper.  People often think strawberries […]

Super simple salmon supper

April 11, 2012


This recipe is easy, fast and delicious; perfect for a weeknight meal.  I used Annie’s organic horseradish mustard because I love the contrast of spicy sauce with rich salmon, but you can use whatever brand and variety you like best.  I served my salmon tonight with steamed veggies and a baked sweet potato. 2 6 […]
