Paleo Fried Chicken

April 7, 2013


I don’t know anyone who dislikes fried chicken.  It has been one of my absolute favorite foods (along with mashed potatoes and gravy) since I was a kid, so of course I had to find a way to make it paleo.  As it turns out, it’s not that hard.  I changed up the type of […]

Wild boar shanks with garlic bacon veggies

March 29, 2013


This is another slow cooker recipe I love.  It takes a while to cook, but there is very little prep involved so you can stick it in the crock pot, and go about your day.  If you can’t find wild boar you can always just use regular pork.  I love using shanks because they are […]

Chili Braised Spare Ribs

March 18, 2013


If you ask me, braising makes everything better.  Especially when you braise it with lots of spices.  These beef ribs are a fantastic cold weather alternative to the summer b.b.q. variety.  Serve them whole, or shred them up and put them in lettuce cups like a taco. 8 dried New Mexico chilis 4 garlic cloves […]

Beef stew with horseradish whipped cauliflower

February 19, 2013


This recipe was inspired by a dish I used to get from a restaurant called Ned Kelly’s where I was a waitress.  They would reduce the stew until it became basically meat, vegetables and gravy, then serve it over smashed redskin potatoes.  I would order it a couple of times a week during the winter […]

Warm escarole salad with shrimp

February 14, 2013


Recently I’ve discovered I love warm greens.  I know I’m a little late to the game on this one, but better late than never right?  While I’m not a huge fan of the sturdy sulfuric greens like collard and mustard greens, the more tender escarole and bok choy have become new staples in my kitchen.  […]

Coffee crusted goat chops with red wine reduction

February 11, 2013


This is an elegant yet simple meal that will impress significant others and dinner guests alike.  Goat has a wonderfully mild flavor that pairs perfectly with coffee and spice, and the red wine sauce goes great with any red meat.  This is one of those meals that makes it easy to be paleo, because you […]
