During 15 years of cooking for my (now carnivorous) vegetarian husband the one food that we could always agree on: soup. We ate a lot of soup. But lately, soup has been neglected; pushed aside in favor of meaty sauces & chunks of pure protein. We’ve been missing one of our favorite meals: [...]
Back by popular demand: Cauliflower Rice. This is such a simple yet satisfying addition to a meal; it’s definitely worth another look.
Coconut is delicious (& Paleo!) & cookies are delicious (& can be Paleo!); clearly, the time had come for Macaroons.
To find the perfect Macaroon recipe, I searched the many Paleo sites & headed over to see what our old friends at America’s Test Kitchen had to say.
For my Macaroons, I used honey & used unsweetened [...]
We love meatballs. We love Asian food. When I came across a recipe for wrapper-less gyozas I knew we had to give it a try (& we’re so glad we did).
Tasty Stuffed Peppers
A cozy favorite, Stuffed Peppers (okay, “cozy” may not be your first choice on an 27*c (80*f) day, but the rains will come again soon enough)… The first order of business- how to lighten up this meat-filling without the traditional rice?

Mel's Favorite Chili
I finally made the chili recipe from that fabulous blog, The Clothes Make the Girl- it is very tasty & I thought I should pass it on. I’m accustomed to chili with big chunks of meat as the base, so at first I hesitated, but there was no reason. It’s saucy & [...]
When looking for a perfect coleslaw to accompany the pulled pork, I didn’t have to look very far. Cook’s Illustrated has already perfected the recipe & so, unlike most recipes that I inevitably alter to our tastes or our Paleo desires, this one I actually follow (except that I never make just a [...]
This has become one of our Main Meats. We eat it frequently & we make it for our friends- it’s moist & flavorful & it’s hard to get tired of. On top of all that, I’d say it’s virtually foolproof- every single time I’ve made it, it has turned out perfectly. Now that’s what I [...]
We’ve been finding Brussels Sprouts at the Prague Vegetable market lately (Holešovická Tržnice)- which meant we needed to find the best way to eat them. This seems to be it, as even our 7-year-old thinks they’re delicious.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Garlic
- Brussels Sprouts- one colander full (really, as many as will fit happily in your [...]
Sunflower Sesame Crackers with Shrimp Paté
from Mark’s Daily Apple
In last week’s exploration of Primal Snacks we delved into the world of non-potato chips. This week, it seemed fitting to explore non-cracker crackers. Although saying these Sunflower Sesame Crackers submitted by Girl Gone Primal (from Girl Gone Primal) aren’t real crackers [...]
