Veggie Noodles with Cashew-Cilantro Pesto

Even though I have many Paleo cookbooks and can find hundreds of Paleo recipes available online, I couldn’t resist this Paleo Recipes magazine at the grocery store checkout.  The yummy Avocados Topped 8 Ways on the cover was irresistible, the pictures gorgeous and the recipes easy.  There are also a few pages explaining the Paleo […]

Salmon Quiche

This is a recipe I have been making for many years from a cookbook called “Eating Well When You Just Can’t Eat the Way You Used To”.  When our kids were little they loved having “salmon pie”.  I loved getting healthy salmon into them! You could make this quiche with an almond flour crust, but […]

Dirty Cauliflower Rice with Andouille Sausage

While cauliflower certainly isn’t rice, it does a pretty good job at substitution because it easily takes on flavors from seasonings.  We love it as a crust for pizza and it makes a great stand-in for traditional rice dishes.  While some paleo aficionados eat rice as well as white potatoes, it’s a good idea to […]

Lemon-Maple Kale Salad

I’ve been looking for more salad ideas and this one from Melissa Joulwan at is a winner. I love getting more kale (a true superfood) into our meals and dates are always a nice bit of sweetness. Massaging the kale made it very tender and I predict this salad is going to be turning […]

Shredded Pork with Pistachio Apple Salad

Here is a super easy, perfect for summer dinner that doesn’t heat up the kitchen.  NomNomPaleo’s Kahlua Pig recipe is super easy to make in the slow cooker overnight. You can also do Kahlua Pig in a pressure cooker in less time. Cook up a batch of Easy BBQ sauce and chop up apples, endive […]

Shrimp Bisque

This recipe from Paleo Comfort Foods looked complicated but definitely wasn’t.  I skipped a step (cooking the shrimp shells in the broth and draining it) cutting 20 minutes off the cooking time and don’t think it impacted the taste.  The whole family loved it.  You could also make it with crab instead of shrimp, might […]

Well Fed 2 Lizard Sauce

There are a bunch of great sauce recipes in Well Fed 2 and we tried a new one tonight to go along with salmon cakes.  It definitely has some zip (and I cut back on the cayenne pepper to 1/2 teaspoon) and is really good.  Lizard sauce was simple to make and the dried guajillo […]

Paleo Dinner Party

I recently met a woman who told me about an interesting concept called  Meal sharing’s mission is to bring people together over home cooked meals.  You can sign up to host a dinner at your house or sign up to attend a dinner.  This woman was recently divorced and her college aged kids were […]

Paleo Chicken Gumbo

I browsed through my cookbook shelf and grabbed Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry for a dinner idea.  Her Chicken Gumbo sounded perfect.  Here’s my adaptation: 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/2 inch cubes 1 package Andouille sausage (I like Trader Joe’s Smoked Andouille Chicken Sausage) 2 tablespoons coconut oil 1 medium onion, […]

Everyday Paleo Chicken Marsala

I love Sarah Fragoso’s Chicken with Fig Sauce and seems I make it for every dinner party with new people.  Tonight I made Sarah’s Chicken Marsala from her Everyday Paleo around the world Italian Cuisine cookbook and it easily qualifies as dinner party material.  It has only a few ingredients plus is easy and quick […]
