Current category: 'Recipes.'

You can call it paleo, but around our house, we call it dino-chow.

I don't (generally) consume grains, sugar, dairy, legumes, caffeine, or alcohol, so almost all of my dino-chow recipes are squeaky clean and paleo/Whole30/primal-approved. My standards are high, and I only post recipes that I've personally tested. My goal is to give you tasty food you can eat EVERY DAY, so you won't find a lot of recipes for "paleo treats." But meat, veg, and yummy, yummy (YUMMY!) fats? I've got you covered. Dig in!

Potluck Season: Paleo Summer Salads

They’re all easy to double and triple for sharing at potlucks, and they’re so packed full of flavor and... read more

WF2 Recipe: Lizard Sauce

Once upon a time, we took a spur-of-the-moment trip to Costa Rica, thinking it would be a big adventure. For a variety of reasons, it was not a dream vacation. (It wasn’t all bad: there are some fun stories here, here, and here.) There were two major bright spots: I loved the lizards that ran rampant over the landscape, and at every meal, a bottle of Salsa Lizano was on the table. Kind of like Costa... read more

WF2 Recipe: Mulligatawny Stew

There is a ridiculously long list of new recipes on my whiteboard that I want to share with you, but that requires re-making them, picking out cute photo props, taking a photo, then writing up the blog post — all of which seems impossibly daunting right now. My thoughts are like this: OMG, WE’RE MOVING TO VERMONT IN, LIKE, 6 WEEKS, AND WE NEED TO PLAN THE MOTHER OF ALL MOVING SALES AND DAMN IT! WHY... read more

The Taste of Eastern Europe

This is the time of year when Dave and I usually start packing our bags to head off on European adventures, but other shenanigans are afoot this year. Hello, cartooning and skiing! The lovely gift of cooking is that I can enjoy the taste of a culture anytime, without the hassle of the trans-Atlantic flight and pesky border controls. Here are some of my favorite recipes, inspired by our travels in the Czech... read more

Tricolore Salad

Spring and summer are potluck season, and a big, brightly-colored salad is like a big bowl of love. Plus, it’s a sneaky, delicious way to get everyone to eat more vegetables. This quick salad showcases the colors of the Italian flag: green basil, white zucchini, and red tomatoes — and it tastes like leisurely, sunny days. Serve it as a topping for grilled chicken or fish, or as part of an antipasto... read more

Tropical Tacos With Jicama Slaw

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... read more

Mediterranean Chicken Salad

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… I knew... read more

Slow Cooker Osso Buco Stew

I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a huge fan of slow cooker stews because I think they get too watery — but sometimes, like now, when we’re packing and traveling and generally FREAKING OUT IN A GOOD WAY about moving to Vermont, it’s nice to just toss some quality ingredients in the slow cooker and let it do its thing. I’m happy to report that a short simmer, uncovered in a... read more

Tender and lush with sweet raisins, briny black olives, and savory blanched almonds, these Cuban Meatballs are like a mini vacation for your taste buds. Served with pan-fried plantains, they’re a meal-time alley-oop. This recipe is part of March Meatball Madness; get all the recipes right here. Cuban Meatballs from... read more
