I was washing and patting dry my chickens and it occurred to me that, damn, I hope my ultimate purpose in life isn’t to be disemboweled, have pork shoved up my hoo-hah, and tossed in the oven. But then again, this chicken made Ross and me very, very happy. ]]> Sun, 21 Oct 2018 20:15:02 +0000 ]]> Garlicky Collard Pie Sun, 21 Oct 2018 20:15:02 +0000 Garlicky Collard PieI haven’t posted a recipe on a Friday in a long time, but this week has just been so crazy I really don’t have time for anything more “in-depth” today. But that’s okay, because as recipes go this one is pretty good – especially if you’re a fan of garlic. I have a co-worker who is diabetic and no longer eats things like cereal and pancakes for breakfast, but complains that he is tired of eggs. I can certainly understand that – most cultures have very strong ideas about what constitutes “breakfast food” and many Americans have trouble viewing last night’s leftovers as a viable option for their first meal of the day, even though it’s a good one. I’m certainly guilty of this myself, so I’ve become rather adept at doing more or less creative things with eggs. And when you make a dish like a frittata or a quiche or a soufflé, where eggs are merely the vehicle for the starring ingredients – in this case, the collard greens and garlic – you can really forget you’re eating what is basically an egg dish. At any rate, I love going into my fridge on a Sunday morning and rummaging around to see what I can come up with. I really like frittatas and quiches (and this is sort of a cross between the two) because you can add anything to them – and they’re a great way to make sure you and your family eat lots of leafy greens. I used collard greens here, since that’s what I had on hand, but kale or mustard greens would work really well too. And because I had some beautiful heads of garlic from the farmer’s market (and because Beloved and I love it), I decided to use quite a bit of that, as well; collards are a fairly hearty leafy green and stood up well to the aggressive flavors in the dish. I was really pleased with this, and apparently so was Beloved; he’s been eating the leftovers all week. This would not only make a great brunch (I served it with bacon and fresh grapefruit), but a nice light supper, as well, paired with a good salad. ]]> Paleo Beef Stew Sun, 21 Oct 2018 20:15:02 +0000 Paleo Beef StewI threw this recipe together and it turned out pretty tasty. I just guessed on the spices,so if you know of a better combo then go for it. I might add a bit of hot pepper next time to give it a kick. By the way,this is a BIG recipe - it almost filled up my large Crockpot. ]]> Sun, 21 Oct 2018 20:15:02 +0000 ]]> Meatballs and Marinara Sauce Sun, 21 Oct 2018 20:15:02 +0000 Meatballs and Marinara SauceI am always using my mom’’s recipes,or someone’’s grandmother’’s old recipes…this is one of mine…I am the MAMMA! Combine both cans of whole tomatoes with their juice and the bunch of basil in a food processor or blender-like this… Pulse until smooth and set aside. Place olive oil,onions and garlic in a saute pan and cook over medium heat until translucent and soft…about 10 minutes…. ]]> Fresh Vegetable Soup with Lime Sun, 21 Oct 2018 20:15:02 +0000 Fresh Vegetable Soup with LimeIt's still soup weather here in northern New Mexico,so certain individuals lugged out their Crock Pot this week and pondered the gentle,slow art of vegetarian potage. This new soup recipe is fresh tasting and full of flavor,kicked up with spicy green chiles a generous squeeze of lime. By the time the March winds howl I am craving a lighter,leaner soup chock full of fresh vegetables and laced with citrus. I added plenty of hot red pepper flakes to jazz it up,too. Sometimes a flexitarian goddess just needs to spice things up a little,vegan style. Bland is so old school ]]> Paleo Pad Thai Sun, 21 Oct 2018 20:15:02 +0000 Paleo Pad ThaiI’ve come to realize lately that many of my food-related stories start with “Back when I lived in DC…” and with good reason. 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. ]]> Sun, 21 Oct 2018 20:15:02 +0000 ]]> Pork StirFry Sun, 21 Oct 2018 20:15:02 +0000 Pork StirFryStir fried pork and veggies using a special fryer from and even adding a special ingredient for improve flavor. ]]>
