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!

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

Oven-Roasted Cauliflower Rice

I recently hosted a dinner party for 12 people and wanted to serve cauliflower rice. But the idea of figuring out how to sauté, like, three heads of cauliflower — without the “rice” getting mushy — and how to have it all ready to serve at the same time was overwhelming. I wondered if there was an easier way. There is: oven roasting! Say hello to Oven-Roasted Cauliflower Rice. The... read more

MMM: Basic Meatballs

Today’s recipe is courtesy of Elana Amsterdam of Elana’s Pantry.

You can make meat dough with a food... read more

Persian Roast Leg of Lamb

We ate a lot of leg of lamb when I was growing up, and whether it was roasted or turned into kebabs, my dad was always in charge of cooking it. I decided recently that it was time for me to tackle a roast leg of lamb myself. Naturally, I bought my leg of lamb from Lava Lake and turned to Cook’s Illustrated for guidance. The recipe below is based on one I learned in Cook’s Illustrated The Best... read more
