Well Fed Chocolate Chili

It’s cold and wintry here in the Midwest and it’s going to be that way for a while yet.  Today I made a batch of one of my favorite chili recipes and it’s the perfect comfort food. I love making this on a weekend afternoon and enjoying the delicious aroma that wafts through the house.  […]

Curried Cream of Broccoli Soup

While I enjoy soup all year round, it’s especially satisfying on a cold, winter day.  Yesterday while I had Chicken Marbella in the oven (it really is our favorite chicken recipe), I made beef broth and poured it into pint size mason jars.  I love using NomNomPaleo’s pressure cooker method for quick, rich broth. After […]

Spaghetti and Meat Sauce

I am a big fan of spaghetti and meat sauce and am happy that it’s completely paleo adaptable.  You can make it using tomato sauce and seasonings and serve it over roasted spaghetti squash or any other vegetables like this recipe from PaleOMG.  Or if you have ripe heirloom tomatoes this is a great recipe […]

More Good Eats from Meals Made Simple

I am thoroughly enjoying Danielle Walker’s new cookbook, Meals Made Simple and posted last week about Peruvian-Style Chicken.  I especially love Danielle’s “making it simple” section of the cookbook, and tip #3: stretch it.  Instead of mundane leftovers that are simply reheated (although I am often happy doing just that), she has a bunch of […]

Peruvian-Style Chicken

Last weekend I picked up a new Paleo cookbook at Costco – Meals Made Simple by Danielle Walker of Against all Grain.  I still have plenty of recipes to try in all of the cookbooks I’ve already recommended on this blog, but I couldn’t resist buying this one.  I love looking at cookbooks as much […]

A Better Guacamole “Chip”

We love guacamole and avocados are fantastic brain food!  Tortilla chips are generally a thing of the past for us since they are made with either flour or corn tortillas, although we will occasionally indulge in corn chips.  Afterwards though I find I often need a nap… Recently we found a fantastic substitute while dining […]

Everyday Paleo Puerto Rican Beef

With kids back to school and many families getting into to a busier routine, getting a good dinner on the table fast can be a little more challenging.  College students or new college grads in their first apartments are also looking for fast, easy and inexpensive meal options.  To solve this dilemma, I often turn […]

Everyday Paleo Chili

It’s official!  Labor Day and kids back to school marks the end of summer and the beginning of fall, my favorite season.  To celebrate, I made Everyday Paleo Big Pot of Bean-Less Chili.  This recipe, posted by Sarah in February 2010, was one of the first paleo recipes I made and it continues to be […]

Weekend Brunch

We had some non-paleo friends over for a late brunch today and I put together this easy, make ahead menu of some of our favorite dishes.  It’s such delicious food, no one even notices it’s also healthy!  With everything ready ahead of time you can simply relax and enjoy time with your guests.  Click the […]

Everyday Paleo Fast Shrimp

With two pounds of wild-caught shrimp in the freezer, I checked the index section of a couple of paleo cookbooks to find quick recipes with shrimp and other items I had on hand.  Came up with a winner from Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook: Real Food for Real Life. In the front of the book Sarah […]
