Butternut Squash Fritters

During a Paleo Pen Pal swap I had the pleasure of meeting one of the two very skilled ladies behind the Paleo Pen Pal project — Brittanie Duncan.  Brittanie blogs over at Three Diets One Dinner, and has some really excellent recipes to try.  I for one might be biased, seeing as how we are both native Texans…but […]

Rootie Toot Tootie

Last weekend we visited one of the farmer’s markets in downtown Austin.  Two items we gladly came home with were some jalapeno turnips and a bundle of beautifully striped carrots.  They were so pretty that I wanted to keep them as fresh as possible and not lose their color through any cooking.  The following recipe […]

Paleo Comfort Foods: Shada’s Kale Salad

So as most of you have noticed, I am sure…I have been on a real Fall kick lately.  Oh, it’s only the beginning folks.  I made a Fall recipe last night from one of my favorite Paleo cookbooks —  “Paleo Comfort Foods” written by Julie & Charles Mayfield.  It is an excellent book for all things comforting!  […]

EDP: Kale and Parsnip Saute

You know, I am certain of one thing…  that one thing is that eating the kind of food I do is what truly keeps me going.  I know that I am no exception when it comes to a busy lifestyle, but I often find myself wondering where the heck are all the hours going!?  It has not […]

Spinach Salad with Roasted Butternut Squash & Grapes

Been a while folks; I know.  I have been enjoying two glorious days off and managed to get a lot done.  While Jason was off at work I took care of a buttload of laundry and pretty much cleaned the whole house.  I gotta tell ya; I am lovin’ those carbs.  Ever since I added more […]

Bok Choy & Kelp Noodle Bowl with Cilantro-Cream Sauce

I recently fell in love with kelp noodles.  Their texture can take some getting used to, but I personally think they’re a great addition to our diet.  The main reason I started to incorporate them into recipes is because kelp noodles, along with other sea vegetables, are very good sources of iodine.  Iodine is a necessary trace […]

Roasted Broccoli with a Toasted Garlic & Coriander Oil

Yep, I’m still roasting.  Yep, I’m still flavoring oils!  Jason and I were just going on and on about how awesome roasted vegetables are.  Good Lord, it can’t get any easier.  If you’re a busy individual, but you want to eat well just turn to your trusty oven and broiler.  Foil-lined sheets make for such […]

Roasted Cauliflower with Lemon-Mustard Dressing

I finally got to try out my new Calphalon roaster with a whole chicken today!  I love it.  The roaster and the chicken.  When I roast chickens I like to smear melted butter all over the skin so that when it’s done the outside is all charred and crispy!  That’s the best part.  When I was knawing […]

Roasted Green Beans with Caramelized Shallot Butter

I think I am on a roasting frenzy over here!  We are still doing our best on this 21 DSD…trying to keep it as simple and clean as possible.  Today is the start of day 5 and cravings were at their worst for me last night.  I am fairly certain this is how it happens […]

Roasted Fennel with Rosemary-Thyme-Lemon Oil

I mentioned in my previous post that we made roasted fennel for the first time.  I was pleasantly surprised…so much that I needed to share it with you.  I am a huge fan of roasting vegetables…of any kind.  Think about it — it takes less time than messing with the grill, and you still get those little charred parts […]
