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: Making “Meat Dough”

Have you caught the frenzy of March Meatball Madness? (And are you enjoying the equally delicious celebration of Fug Madness? I love Fug Madness!) In this post, I’m going to share the three methods I use to blend what I affectionately call “meat dough,” a.k.a., meat mixed with seasonings that’s then turned into luscious balls of goodness. 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

March Meatball Madness

March Madness, an American college basketball competition, is celebrated in office betting pools and beer-soaked bars across the U.S. Although I am firmly an NFL football girl — and a Fug Madness girl — I’m also a girl that cannot resist alliteration. And meatballs. So, along with my husband Dave (tall enough for basketball but really more of a reader) and some paleo friends, I shared paleo... read more

WF2 Recipe: Kickass Ketchup

As a kid, I never liked ketchup, an opinion that wasn’t helped by the fact that my brother ate a ketchup-and-peanut-butter sandwich once to gross me out. As an adult, I learned I loved it on fried things — french fries, onion rings, fried pickles — but never, ever, ever on meat. Then I started eating paleo and battered-and-fried things went away. Ketchup was forgotten… until I started... read more

Substitute For Soy Sauce & Coconut Aminos

I don’t want to be a big baby or anything, but sometimes I get really tired of the fact that my “special food” — i.e., food that is healthy and real and not poisoned with unpronounceable ingredients — costs twice as much as the crappy, regular version. The target of my ire recently was coconut aminos. Don’t get me wrong: I love coconut aminos for the way they healthily replace... read more
