After college, I truly relished any chance to make or try new foods. Many evenings after work were spent at local eateries with friends, enjoying drinks and tasty eats. And if we weren’t out, I was almost always cooking with my roommates. Even back then, before paleo and the blog were the focus of my life, cooking and eating was a core activity for me. One of the dishes I was introduced to and came to love during my years in DC was Pad Thai. Now, from what I understand, this dish can vary quite a bit from place to place. It is usually made with shrimp, tofu, or chicken – and my favorite way to have it is with chicken. I’ve been telling Hayley for a long time that I wanted to try my hand at making a paleo version of Pad Thai, but for the life of me I couldn’t remember how I made it when I lived in DC. That was when it occurred to me that I had actually never made it! (haha, oops!) But instead, we always got it from a place in Old Town called Mai Thai. I remember it being one of my favorite indulgences when I lived there. ]]> Bacon, chicken, strawberry salad Mon, 27 Mar 2017 20:50:03 +0000 Bacon, chicken, strawberry saladThis is my prepping for summer salad. Right now it's the end of april and it's starting to get warm and I am going into summer mode. This salad is cool and refreshing and perfect for summer mode. It's got the crunch and salt from the bacon,the sweet and cool of the strawberries,and my personal favorite,the creamy,savory avocado dressing. Don't you wanna make it??? I also want to add that I had elaborate plans to film my cooking of this salad to post for you all but the flip cam died half way through. Lesson learned ]]> Grilled Chicken Wings Mole Mon, 27 Mar 2017 20:50:03 +0000 Grilled Chicken Wings MoleAlways on the lookout for another way to serve chicken wings, I read quite a few recipes before the “big day”. I am of course referring to Superbowl Sunday, unquestionably the biggest day of the year for chicken wing consumption. According to the National Chicken Council‘s 2012 Wing Report (really, I am not making this up), more than 1.25 billion wing portions will be consumed during Super Bowl weekend in 2012, totaling more than 100 million pounds of wings. That’s a lot of freakin’ chicken wings! Chipotle hot wings sounded interesting, but I decided to take that idea a step further with a nod to mole sauce. Technically this marinade is not even close to the depth of flavor you would experience from an authentic Oaxacan mole, but it does have discernible elements of chile, cocoa, cinnamon, and honey – - mild heat, sweetness, and smokiness. This is my “first draft” of the recipe, and it may need to be tweaked a little to get just the right balance. If you give it a try, I welcome your suggestions to take this recipe from “tasty” to “killer”! ]]> Grilled Spare Ribs with Fig-Orange Glaze Mon, 27 Mar 2017 20:50:03 +0000 Grilled Spare Ribs with Fig-Orange GlazePork. Figs. Barbecue. A match made in backyard heaven. ]]> Slow Cooked Meatloaf Mon, 27 Mar 2017 20:50:03 +0000 Slow Cooked MeatloafAre you sick of chicken? Or perhaps your recycling bin is full of cardboard egg cartons? If you are relatively new to eating Paleo it can be a challenge to get creative with your food…and thus you fall into the trap of eating the same damn thing…every day! This recipe is to save you from growing feathers and beak---give the chicken a break and have some meat….loaf! Pull out your crock-pot and give this recipe a shot…it has a bit of a kick to it—so it isn’’t your classic meatloaf recipe—but it is all Paleo approved! ]]> Broccoli Cashew Raisin Salad Mon, 27 Mar 2017 20:50:03 +0000 Broccoli Cashew Raisin SaladA broccoli dish even broccoli haters don't hate! ]]> Flank Steak Salad Mon, 27 Mar 2017 20:50:03 +0000 Flank Steak SaladMy goal this weekend is to help you from falling victim to the usual fatty barbecue foods. Here’’s a delicious simple lunch that’’s packed full of flavor and only takes minutes to pull together. Grilled flank is a quick n easy way to get quality protein,especially after a vigorous workout in case any of you are actually going to exercise over the holiday weekend. Working out and eating well means more beer. (I’’m a very wiiiiise man!) ]]> Carrot Salad Mon, 27 Mar 2017 20:50:03 +0000 Carrot SaladQuestion: How do you repair your house when it is officially bursting at the seams? I can’’t answer that – yet – but I can tell you that 8-handed Apples to Apples when half of the people playing are half in the bag is a hilarious experience. I’’m terribly busy this morning (I had to come into the office to be able to log on to my laptop – how’’s that for a vacation? LOL), but I do have time to give you the recipe for this simple, classic summer salad. Because it’’s what you make when you have 6 quarts of carrots from your CSA in the fridge. (The remainder will be canned. Soon. I hope.) Later this week, I’’ll give you the method for the Perfect Smoked Beef Brisket. If Beloved lets me – I think it may now be a family secret. Have a lovely Monday, y’’all., ]]> Sweet BBQ Baby Back Ribs Mon, 27 Mar 2017 20:50:03 +0000 Sweet BBQ Baby Back RibsAfter spending the third week of march in Texas Hill Country (Austin, to be exact, for Paleo Fx), we had both been bitten by the barbecue bug in a big way. Our last night in Austin was spent at the world famous Salt Lick restaurant – a mecca in the barbecue world. We brought home a profound respect for Texas barbecue, and wanted to replicate some of the amazing food we had while there (Minus the soybean oil and sugar…yep I checked the ingredients of the barbecue sauce. First ingredient was SOYBEAN oil…BAD NEWS! -Hayley). My mom always told me that the key to making fall-off-the-bone ribs is to parboil them first. While that may not be the most “legit” method in the eyes of barbecue aficionados, it was certainly a quick and easy way to get the meat tender for any home cook with limited tools and resources. We had the pleasure of enjoying this dish with US Wellness Meats pork baby back ribs, and naturally they were amazing. We recommend using Cherry wood if you’re going to attempt the wood-fired grill route. Hickory or Mesquite would aslo be acceptable, as well as apple wood. You can purchase bags of hardwood at Home Depot or Lowes, if not from a local provider. We fully intend to continue making this dish in heavy (perhaps weekly) rotation throughout the summer. ]]> Italian Beef Hash with Mashed Cauliflower Mon, 27 Mar 2017 20:50:03 +0000 Italian Beef Hash with Mashed CauliflowerItalian seasoned grass-fed beef sautéed with veggies and tomato sauce, and served over buttery mashed cauliflower ]]> Paleo Pizza Stuffed Peppers Mon, 27 Mar 2017 20:50:03 +0000 Paleo Pizza Stuffed PeppersThese peppers are super easy to put together and have a lot of the same toppings as a traditional pizza would, but they are much better for you! Sausage, tomato sauce, mushrooms, peppers, onions, garlic and fresh herbs from the garden - sounds like a supreme pizza to me! ]]>
