I found a terrific sort-of-recipe for a homemade version of Korean barbecue in the Bon Appetit November 2015 issue. It’s a sort-of-recipe and not an actual recipe because it has a bunch of different options you can make. Anyway, I took that recipe as a baseline and reduced the sugar content, removed nightshades (which makes […]

Food for the 4th

The Fourth of July is my favorite holiday. It happens during the summer, and I live for summer, so there’s that. It happens when the produce is amazing and simple and local. So there’s that, too. It’s all about community and the “big deal” is the neighborhood parade and fireworks on the hill. It usually […]

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 […]

It’s the last day of school! (Translation: I hope I can keep blogging! Transition. Crazy schedules. All-mommy-all-the-time. We shall see!) Much of my free time the past few days was absorbed by this tire-weirdness that popped up. The diagnosis? “You must have hit a pothole, m’am.” (Those of you who drive in Atlanta will understand […]

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 […]

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 […]

So, this alignment-obsessed Paleo-eating mom of three goes to the market after teaching a class on Sunday.  She stocks up for the week. Although she tries to keep costs down by ordering meat in bulk and freezing it, on this particular occasion, she needs to pretty much buy all her family’s protein for the week […]

So the hot news this week is all about tinkling. Specifically, a video from Crossfit which characterizes the “common” act of peeing during a workout as something that is “normal,” and even the sacrifice one must make to be fit and competitive. If you are someone who cares about women’s health, as I am, this […]

I’ve been trying to vary up my meat selection lately, getting more adventuresome with my cuts.  I rely heavily on my butcher’s advice about how to prepare cuts I’ve never served before and I have also been known to curl up with my [amazon_link id=”061813512X” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]favorite meat cookbook[/amazon_link] before bed. The other day, […]

My yard is overgrown with hydrangeas right now, and I couldn’t be happier about it.  I love the way that certain varieties will change color, depending on the acidity of the soil.  But mostly, I just love how they look and I could sit and stare at my front yard all day. (If I didn’t […]
