Festive Squash Soup

The long Thanksgiving weekend at my parent’s house involved lots of quality family time as well as cooking and eating, cooking and eating, cooking and eating….  When we got home this afternoon we were ready for something light that required minimal effort. This festive butternut squash soup from Everyday Paleo matched our requirements perfectly.  With […]

Paleo Dinner Party

I recently met a woman who told me about an interesting concept called mealsharing.com.  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 […]

Sun Dried Tomato Chicken Bake

I have made this dish from Everyday Paleo a bunch of times, and tonight it was the best ever.  While I love garlic, I left it out tonight as it hasn’t been agreeing with me so much lately.  I think it was so much better without the garlic.  Or maybe it was the sun dried […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Paleo Chicken with Fig Sauce

A friend of mine recently gave me a very thoughtful gift.  A bottle of Rosso di Montalcino wine accompanied by one of her favorite recipes.  The wine is a key ingredient for Rachel Ray’s Montalcino Chicken with Figs and Buttered Gnocchi.  I thought it would be easy enough to modify this to paleo by skipping […]

Everyday Paleo Meatloaf

Sarah Fragoso mentions in her cookbook, Everyday Paleo, that she had a meatloaf aversion before her husband suggested she come up with a paleo meatloaf.  After creating this recipe, which her family loves, she became a fan. I felt a kinship with Sarah on this one as my husband is a meatloaf fan (me, not […]
