Oxtail Soup

January 29, 2013


I had heard lots of good things about oxtail soup, but had never tried it myself.  Recently Whole Foods starting having oxtails in stock, so I figured what better time to try it?  This may not be the most authentic recipe, since I cobbled it together from various internet recipes, catering to my own likes […]

Lamb shanks with lemon and carrots

January 25, 2013


This easy one pot meal is great for a cold night.  Prep time is only about 10 minutes, then just set the crock pot and go about your daily routine.  I cooked carrots with the lamb but any root vegetable you like would work just as well.  I like meyer lemons with this dish because […]

Mashed root vegetables with bacon vinaigrette

January 21, 2013


This recipe is pretty much straight out of the November issue of Bon Appetit.  Root vegetables are in season right now and easy to find in any supermarket.  It is also nice to switch it up from my usual sweet potato and veggie side dishes.  And hey, what can be wrong with adding bacon? 1/4 […]

Slow roasted goat with fennel

Chicken thighs with lemon and oregano

January 7, 2013


I found this recipe in Bon Appetit Magazine, and adapted it for paleo.  The original recipe calls for skin on chicken thighs, which would lead to a crispier texture, and prettier presentation, but since I only had skinless, that’s what I used.  Either way, its an easy recipe for a weeknight meal.  I served mine […]

Oven roasted flounder with cilantro, bok choy and lime

January 4, 2013


I found this recipe in the December issue of Bon Appetit Magazine.  I changed it up a bit to make it paleo, omitting the soy and rice components and adding fish sauce and more lime instead.  I also used a different fish, since sole was available at the store the day I went.  The end […]

Top ten list of 2012: My favorite paleo essentials

January 2, 2013


So 2012 is over, and the world didn’t end, which is great because that means I get to eat more!  I started this blog because, as a foodie, I had a very hard time with the lack of variety in other paleo cookbooks and websites.  Even though I try to change things up as often […]
