In the blog that I run in my fantasies, I posted some fabulous new recipes for you all to enjoy this holiday season. Since, however, you can only see the real, actual WordPress blog and not the one in my fantasy world, I had to settle for this compilation of my existing recipes which are […]

You know I am going all out if I peel a cucumber. I’ve been known to grab a fistful of roast beef in one hand, half a cuke in the other, and call it a meal. So, when I was making this salad the other night and started to peel the cucumbers, M looked at […]

Asian-Braised Pork Wraps

This is one of those recipes that is purposefully mild, so as to have broad-kid appeal. (Looking for another one? Check out my Pesto Chicken Zusketti where you roast the garlic to reduce the bite.) Consequently, for the grown-up palate, you may want to have some sriracha on the table. Actually, my husband strongly encourages you […]

Bacon Cheeseburger Kebabs

Yes. You read that right. Bacon Cheeseburger Kebabs. Some background: The butcher at my nearest Whole Foods Market features a few prepared foods in addition to the cuts of meat. Lately, they’ve offered two versions of kefta, one Greek and one Moroccan. The latter had nightshades but the former, ohmygoodnessgracious. So unbelievably delish. I wanted […]

Celeriac Rounds

If you were to ask me what I found most challenging about feeding my family on a Paleo/Primal template, I would say two words: starchy carbs. A common Paleo/Primal “pitfall” is to accidentally go too low carb. Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites and Practical Paleo wrote a nice, quick Facebook post on the topic you […]

Baked Banana Splits

We had some dessert-style fun at our house this week and I thought I would share the idea with you guys. It’s been colder than a Polar Bear’s nose in these parts lately, so I’ve gravitated towards the warm types of yummies. Two weeks ago I had a massive craving for a custard-style treat and […]

My kids were out of school on Halloween and the following day for Teacher Conferences.  It was fun to have that time together and also a blessing that we didn’t have to wake them for school on the day after trick-or-treating. The trouble is, even though the kids weren’t at school, we still had to […]

Lemon Parsley Chicken

Of all the proteins I serve them, my kids enjoy chicken the least. My go-to quick meal often involves a rotisserie chicken from Whole Foods and the kids usually gripe and complain about it.  Same with my whole smoked chickens and baked chicken parts (which, incidentally are basted in duck fat* and I happen to think […]

My friend K put in a request for ground beef recipes, which has proven more challenging than one might imagine. The big problem is that I can’t eat nightshades and many of the best uses for ground beef demand nightshades – Italian recipes, chili, even the picadillo I wanted to re-create. The other problem is […]

Fall Harvest Sauce

I have a lovely vegan friend who reads my blog every day and has been incredibly supportive, despite the fact that my recipes are chock full of eggs and meat.  Today’s recipe has neither.  So D, this one’s for you! This is a simple fruit sauce that I made with my kids.  My daughter, M, […]
