Mix the spices and chopped tarragon into the melted butter and pour both inside and outside the chicken, spreading it evenly with your fingers or a basting brush (if you can find yours--I was not so lucky). Stuff the cavity with the onion and bay leaves. Chop the sweet potato and, after buttering a cast-iron skillet, toss the pieces in the skillet with olive oil, salt and pepper. Settle the chicken on top of the sweet potatoes and roast on the middle rack of the oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Meanwhile, pour the pomegranate juice and pepper into a pot. Peel and squeeze the clementines, adding the remnants of the fruit to the juice in the pot. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until the glaze has reduced. When the chicken is cooked through with a golden-brown skin, remove from the oven and brush the pomegranate citrus glaze over it. Let cool slightly before carving. ]]> Orange Gremolata Beef Roast Thu, 09 Apr 2020 14:33:36 +0000 Orange Gremolata Beef RoastA great variation to the ordinary Sunday Roast! ]]> Asian Pork Lettuce Wraps Thu, 09 Apr 2020 14:33:36 +0000 Asian Pork Lettuce WrapsOne of the things I missed most when I first went Paleo was the ability to throw a chunk of meat in the crock pot, cover it in sauce, serve in on a freshly baked roll and call it dinner. Most pre-made sauces are loaded with sugar and since I no longer eat anything on a bun, my crockpot gathered a bit of dust while I transitioned. But when I rediscovered my love for lettuce wraps (HOLY MOSES those are good!) I busted out my crockpot again and sang love songs to it because it makes my weeknight life so much easier. After a few trials and tribulations, and some super disgusting dinners (which, HELLO, seem like an extra betrayal when they happen in the crockpot because you come home expecting dinner to be ready only to find out that you have to figure out a Plan B!) I finally came up with a a combo of yummy flavors that has found its way into the regular rotation in our kitchen. And a bonus, it gets Garrett to eat pork with a smile! Although you could certainly substitute chicken in this dish and get great results. ]]> Thu, 09 Apr 2020 14:33:36 +0000 ]]> Roasted Asparagus Avocado Soup Thu, 09 Apr 2020 14:33:36 +0000 Roasted Asparagus Avocado SoupThis asparagus soup recipe is an easy homemade soup using paleo foods that I always have in the kitchen. Asparagus and avocado are two of my favorites, and they blend perfectly in this roasted asparagus avocado soup. Avocado replaces the cream and makes the soup luxuriously silky. ]]> Fun Burgers Thu, 09 Apr 2020 14:33:36 +0000 Fun BurgersLast night’’s dinner, if anything, was pure fun. The boys did most of the work as I supervised and the mess was nothing short of epic! I should have taken a picture of the “aftermath” but as I stated on my Facebook page last night, life’’s too short to do anything but embrace the craziness! I wouldn’’t call this post a recipe but more of an idea of how to get the kids involved and an example that the typical Monday night paleo burger can be just about anything but boring! What can your family come up with? ]]> Not your typical grandma’s PALEO Meatballs Thu, 09 Apr 2020 14:33:36 +0000 Not your typical grandma’s PALEO MeatballsEveryone LOVES meatballs, and these little tasty morsels have a very unique flavour and are to die for. If you have kids let them help you, there are lots of ingredients for them to throw together and have them roll the meatballs. They’’re sure to enjoy and gobble down something they’’ve helped make. For this recipe I used organic grassfed beef from peasants craft farm. ]]> Spicy Grilled Tuna salad with warm bacon vinaigrette Thu, 09 Apr 2020 14:33:36 +0000 Spicy Grilled Tuna salad with warm bacon vinaigretteSpicy Grilled Tuna salad with a warm bacon vinaigrette. So delicious I'm drooling writing about it! ]]> Kombu Egg Soup Thu, 09 Apr 2020 14:33:36 +0000 Kombu Egg SoupJust when you think you’’ve had every type of soup out there,something new comes along. Like this recipe for Kombu Egg Soup sent in by Aaron Blaisdell for the Primal Cookbook Challenge. As Aaron so rightly reminded us,“sea vegetables are often an overlooked component of our ancestral diet,even among us primal types.” Kombu Egg Soup is incredibly nourishing and while the flavor of sea vegetables might be an acquired taste,in this soup you’’ll find it to be fairly mild. But what are sea vegetables,exactly? We’’ve featured this food group (otherwise known as algae) as Smart Fuel before,but the quick version is this: sea vegetables are in most cases some version of seaweed,whether it be nori (the dried seaweed that sushi is wrapped in) or something like kombu. ]]> Roasted Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin Thu, 09 Apr 2020 14:33:36 +0000 Roasted Bacon Wrapped Pork LoinThis bacon wrapped oven roasted pork loin is the home version of a dish that I make (with lots of help, of course!) for > 100 people at the Boston Rescue Mission during their Sunday Community Dinner. The nice thing about making just a single serving at home (as opposed to making 10 times the amount in commercial ovens), is that I can actually cook the pork a lot less (compared to at the shelter, where we essentially have to cook everything well done). Here, I decided to cook it to a perfect medium, just slightly pink in the middle. It was juicy, tender, and absolutely fantastic. ]]> Lemongrass Pork Chop Thu, 09 Apr 2020 14:33:36 +0000 Lemongrass Pork ChopIf you've ever been to a Vietnamese restaurant and not headed straight to the pho section of the menu,you may have tried lemongrass pork,which is a sweet/savory grilled pork dish. I decided to incorporate these unique flavors into thick-cut pork chops (because face it,there's only so many ways to cook pork chops) and I added a citrusy pan sauce on top for good measure. Brining is an essential part of juicy pork chops (even the traditional Vietnamese recipe calls for marinating overnight),so be sure to start this recipe well in advance of dinnertime. ]]> Carrot Salad Thu, 09 Apr 2020 14:33:36 +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., ]]>
