Wed, 07 Jan 2015 21:18:33 +0000 hourly 1 Pinchos Morunos Sun, 28 Aug 2016 10:32:10 +0000 Pinchos MorunosI was at Leonardo’’s, a tiny Spanish restaurant in Chico, CA. the other night. Not Mexican! Spanish! Some of you know the difference, many do not. In España, a “taco” is a swearword and a “burrito” is a tiny donkey – so just by the example of these two words it’’s easy to assume that Spanish food and Mexican food are quite different. Spanish foods tend to be closer to Greek or Middle Eastern cuisine; using a lot of spices such as cumin, saffron, and garlic but not so many hot seasonings. I ordered from the huge selection of tapas, or, small plates/appetizers. Of all the great meaty delights though, this dish caught my attention as it reminded me of another favorite, Moroccan Kefta. The hot and succulent pork was so perfectly seasoned with a thick crust of spices – perfect warm weather party food. I had to take a stab at making it. I scoured the Internets this morning reading recipes and landed on one that I felt was closest to what I had tasted at Leonardo’’s – plus it was already quite in line with being paleo friendly. I’’ll give the ingredients of what I used and follow up with some notes that I would suggest for the next time. ]]> Creamy Broccoli Soup Sun, 28 Aug 2016 10:32:10 +0000 Creamy Broccoli SoupPut coconut oil in a large saucepan,turn heat on medium high. Add finely chopped white onion,garlic,tarragon (to taste),sea salt and black pepper. Saute until onions are a nice golden brown. You can even go as far as caramalizing the onions...this adds a nice flavor. Add 3 cans of coconut milk,turn heat to medium. Chop broccoli to desired size and add to soup. Simmer on medium low heat until broccoli is soft (about 15 minutes). If you have a good organic chicken stock,adding 1 cup of that would be absolutely delicious. If you have a finicky eater,like I do,I put their portion in the food processor once it's cooked and puree until desired consistency - she will eat and actually enjoy it that way ]]> Sausage Butternut Squash Frittata Sun, 28 Aug 2016 10:32:10 +0000 Sausage Butternut Squash FrittataSausage and butternut squash frittata is a perfect paleo breakfast, lunch or dinner. ]]> Squid Adobo Sun, 28 Aug 2016 10:32:10 +0000 Squid AdoboFilipino style squid braised in an adobo sauce of coconut aminos, vinegar, ginger, and tomato. ]]> Bison au Poivre with Caramelised Leeks Sun, 28 Aug 2016 10:32:10 +0000 Bison au Poivre with Caramelised LeeksSimple, easy and tasty! ]]> Beef Filet w/Mushroom Sauce Sun, 28 Aug 2016 10:32:10 +0000 Beef Filet w/Mushroom SaucePreheat saute pan for 1 minute on medium heat.

Our son was just diagnosed with Celiac Disease about one month ago, and I have to tell you that your recipes have been such a help. We all loved the chicken, and I ended up baking it at 350 until it was cooked (25-30 minutes) since it rained the day I made it and couldn't use the grill- flavor was still excellent! Thank you! -Ana This recipe for chicken breast is full of flavorful lime and cilantro, and when you bake it (rather than grilling) the flavors have a chance to entirely infuse the dish. Thanks for this excellent suggestion Ana! I don't know if your children will like this easy chicken dish; I can tell you that mine gobble it up every time I make it. If you're looking for healthy recipes for dinner, look no further, this chicken is it. ]]> Slow Roasted Pork Belly Sun, 28 Aug 2016 10:32:10 +0000 Slow Roasted Pork BellySlow roasting gives this rich cut of pork a crispy exterior and a moist, succulent interior. ]]> Sunshine Halibut Sun, 28 Aug 2016 10:32:10 +0000 Sunshine HalibutSo,the fact of the matter is,my brother is a great cook. We come from a family of eaters. We have appetite. I think that when you like to eat,when you really in italics like to eat,you are graced with a natural ability to cook well. It’’s instinctive and distantly related to hunger. Now,don’’t start filing my brother into the category of a refined gourmet,that’’s incorrect. There is not much refined about him. And gourmet? Hmm. If you believe that there is fine food to be discovered in gas stations across North America then my brother,by your definition,is a gourmet. He would argue that he has a refined palate. But he argues a lot. This all goes to say that about a month ago,my brother made this dinner for our family. And it was everything that I like eating these days – it’’s fresh,clean,simple and,most favourably,speedy. You will like it a lot. You might be so impressed that you will take his recommendation on food that is sold only in gas station convenience stores. ]]> Mediterranean Zucchini Noodles with Sardines Sun, 28 Aug 2016 10:32:10 +0000 Mediterranean Zucchini Noodles with SardinesThe fish-infused olive oil from the sardines makes this slinky and luscious, without being overly fishy. It was light and super satisfying. Plus, with all those noodles, I could make giant, twirl-up bites on the fork. I LOVE A BIG BITE! This reminds me of linguine with white clam sauce, so you can easily replace the sardines with canned clams, if that’s your thing. This would probably also be tasty with tuna or salmon. ]]>
