This recipe begins with the simplicity of Chinese Five-Spice Pork Ribs and is transformed into a nourishing bowl of broth spiked with plenty of ginger, oh-so-green bok choy, and morsels of spiced-just- right pork. Thanks to Zucchini Noodles, you can twirl, splash, and slurp to your heart’s content.
If you don’t have the patience to wait for the Five-Spice Pork Ribs to cook overnight in the slow...

In each issue of Paleo Magazine, I share the story of a traditional recipe and adapt it to fit into a healthier paleo lifestyle. In the article below, I took a deeper look at the Indonesian dish gado-gado, a salad that’s hearty enough to be a meal—and super easy to make. It’s great for filling you with energy during a post-holiday clean-up, and the bonus is that it doesn’t feel...

I’m not sure who started following whom first, but Ciarra Hannah (from the wonderful Popular Paleo site) and I have been Twitter pals for… I don’t know how long. Forever! (“Forever” in Twitter time.) Like Ciarra herself, the recipes on her site are friendly and fun — and delicious. (I can’t vouch for the deliciousness of Ciarra, but I can only assume that if one took...

I’ve been joking that I’m becoming a homesteader since we moved to Vermont.
That is an (unintentional) insult to homesteaders everywhere.
Preserving things during the summer is a Big Deal here, and after multiple exposures, I could no longer resist the massive towers of 1-quart Ball jars at the co-op, the regular grocery store, and K-Mart. I’ve been tinkering a lot and after several...

I’m on a hard-boiled egg kick. One of my favorite snacks is an hb-egg with a dollop of homemade mayo and a light sprinkling of truffle salt. Divine. I’ve also been perfecting my recipe for fuschia-colored pickled eggs. I keep telling Dave I’m becoming a homesteader now that we live in Vermont. He just rolls his eyes.
But here’s the thing about hb-eggs. They can be a royal pain in...

Since I’m still unpacking moving boxes,Taylor Nichols, the blogger behind Tayste of Paleo, is going to tell you a little bit about the mysteries of chicken labeling and why it’s important to know your local farmers. Then as a treat for doing your homework, you can take a bite of her recipe for Paleo ChikFilA Nuggets. Take it away, Taylor…
I grew up on a dairy farm in Southern Colorado...

As we get closer to our move — 11 days and counting! Our one-way airline tickets for Sunday, July 6 are purchased! — it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to deal with keeping us well fed. I love the process of making up new recipes or devouring other peoples’ cookbooks for inspiration, shopping for the perfect ingredients, and spending a few hours playing in the kitchen, but...

Confession #1: In the midst of purging our stuff and preparing for the movers and dealing with the disruption caused by a string of people tromping through our house (prospective buyers, inspector [and, sadly, not this kind], foundation guy, plumber), I have zero desire or time to be creative in the kitchen. We are literally eating grilled chicken and raw vegetables at most meals for the near future.

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, here’s a recipe that can turn a mundane Monday or a tiresome Tuesday into a fiesta! These pork chops are packed with so many festive flavors — and they’re so easy to make — this could quickly become a weeknight favorite at your house. After a quick browning in a hot pan, the pork chops are simmered in a sauce bursting with south of the border flair: chiles, lime...

I can hold two conflicting thoughts with equal conviction, and I have no problem with that whatsoever.
For example: I generally like people who are educated and well-groomed, but I have a soft spot for Kid Rock (Sorry!).
I like to dress in black, but can’t resist the colors pink and orange together. (like this)
I like bananas — but not banana-flavored things — and the texture of pudding makes me...

I’m recovering from the “visit with all of my favorite paleo people mania” of PaleoFX this weekend by cooking and typing while still wearing my pajamas (camo flannel bottoms and a black t-shirt, in case you’re curious). I keep meaning to get dressed and maybe even workout, but it’s 4:00 p.m. and it still hasn’t happened and Jeopardy! is on in 30 minutes, so…
