Mon, 16 Oct 2017 22:14:57 +0000 hourly 1 Chili Chili Bang Bang Thu, 19 Oct 2017 14:52:04 +0000 Chili Chili Bang BangIn the past few weeks,my pregnancy cravings have gone in a different direction than before--these days,I'm content to eat a bowl of chili nearly every night for dinner (and sometimes even for breakfast and/or lunch,too). I don't know what it is about it--maybe it's the season change. Or the fact that chili is so hearty,meaty,and filling. Obviously I have a thing for comfort foods. But hey,at least they're healthy comfort foods,right? Chili is one of the most well-loved and easily converted Paleo Pot-of-Goodness meals around. There are hundreds (thousands,probably) of different chili recipes floating around the internet for you to enjoy. And with most recipes,all you need to do is omit the beans (remember that whole lectins thing?),and you're all set. People in Texas have it right from the start though: Authentic Texas-Style Chili is never made with beans--and chili purists there insist that beans are just thrown in for fill er. Word. The chili I grew up eating was a lot like the type of chili you' ]]> Thu, 19 Oct 2017 14:52:04 +0000 ]]> Spicy Stuffed Banana Peppers Thu, 19 Oct 2017 14:52:04 +0000 Spicy Stuffed Banana PeppersBill and I are known for stopping by local health food stores just to grab one or two items for the day. We frequently make small shopping trips to the grocery store throughout the week, and rarely do a large trip for the week. That is just what seems to work best for us. We have some sort of inspiration for a meal, and run out and grab what we need for it. Ideally, we would love to have a local farmers market available to us and base our meals off of what is available that day, but for now the reverse option is what will have to do. However, on some trips to the grocery store, we do see an item of produce, wild caught fish, or another delicious looking piece of meat and we will grab that in the moment and create a meal around that item. For this recipe, that is exactly what happened. I had stopped into one of our local specialty food stores, McGinnis Sisters, and spotted the hot banana peppers. They looked fantastic, so I grab a few, not really sure what to do with them, but I couldn’’t pass them up. ]]> Thu, 19 Oct 2017 14:52:04 +0000 ]]> Everyday Paleo Chili Verde Thu, 19 Oct 2017 14:52:04 +0000 Everyday Paleo Chili VerdeWeekends are perfect for making a big pot of something delicious…. Today we made Chili Verde and while it slowly simmered on the stove top we walked the dogs in the park and also ran a few errands around town. The end result of our long wait for dinner was melt in your mouth,scrumptious,and subtly spicy homemade chili verde – to die for!!! ]]> Tomato Soup Thu, 19 Oct 2017 14:52:04 +0000 Tomato SoupFew combinations are as universally pleasing as tomato, garlic, and basil. These ingredients come together in an easy-to-make soup. With the addition of chicken broth, coconut oil, and garlic, this soup is brimming with wholesome ingredients. ]]> Paleo Breakfast: Bacon and Strawberries Thu, 19 Oct 2017 14:52:04 +0000 Paleo Breakfast: Bacon and StrawberriesIt's not very often that I post recipes to my blog; I often use other's recipes and find that they are already stellar enough that they don't need my changes! However,in saying that,I've found the ultimate concoction of ingredients that will leave you wanting more. That's right: bacon and strawberries. Now,I know you might be wincing at the odd combination of these two ingredients,but that's the magic of it! This put-together of ingredients is DELISH,and you must try it. So,on to the magical recipe! ]]> Thai Green Chicken Curry Thu, 19 Oct 2017 14:52:04 +0000 Thai Green Chicken CurryI like Thai green curry. It tastes fresh. I like adding to its natural freshness by using partially-cooked vegetables, whose crunchiness really complement the soft chicken. Let me warn you that the curry paste I used in this recipe is significantly more spicy than I thought it would be. If you’re down for some spiciness, this dish should hit the spot. ]]> Mushroom Chicken Fricasee Thu, 19 Oct 2017 14:52:04 +0000 Mushroom Chicken FricaseeIt’s definitely true that you never sleep as well as you do in your own bed. It’s great to be home again! The Man and I have been catching up on chores and errands today–although I have to say the house was spotless when I got in yesterday…he’s one Awesome Dude…which may or may not have something to do with my decision to spend the rest of my life with him, I dunno On the way home from Sam’s, I insisted on a pit stop at Splash Tan. I’m a little melanin-challenged and decided that enough was enough…besides, having a tan makes your muscles look more defined, and therefore makes you stronger. The Man was gracious enough to join me even though his Mexican genes and Florida upbringing allow him to tan at will, which is totally unfair. It’s OK, though, I’ll just use the rest of his salon passes for him before the wedding. Maybe then…just maybe…I’ll have achieved a lovely bronze. Ok, let’s be realistic, at best it’ll be more of a taupe. But it sure as hell beats the whiter-than-white with the rando pink splotches I have going now. This evening we headed down to Round Rock for a garage-WOD with some friends. We did “Helen” this time…I finished 15:33 and The Man rolled in at 11:30…such a stud. We brought some dinner, booze, and Settlers of Catan for afterwards…it’s a great game, by the way. I get really into it…like, loud and possibly violent. Do NOT screw with my roads to the ports. For dinner, I threw together this little chicken dish along with some sauteed cabbage. A “fricassee” is a pretty loose term in French cooking for anything stewed in a thick sauce, but giving fancy names to your dishes only help make you look more like a culinary genius. ]]> Beef and Potato Stew with Saffron Thu, 19 Oct 2017 14:52:04 +0000 Beef and Potato Stew with SaffronI haven't been posting as much as I would like. I've taken some pictures of our food lately but I haven't had time to sit down and write anything up until today. Here is something we ate tonight. It is a delicious paleo beef stew with Spanish flavors. The original recipe is Beef and Potato Stew with Saffron from La Mancha from the book Real Stew by Clifford A. Wright. I had never used cloves or saffron in a stew before,but the result was amazingly rich and delicious. I think this may be my new favorite beef stew! ]]> Skirt Steak with Sauteed Lemon Mushrooms Thu, 19 Oct 2017 14:52:04 +0000 Skirt Steak with Sauteed Lemon MushroomsSkirt steak is on of the most amazing cuts of steak, in our humble opinion. Every time we place an order with US Wellness Meats we absolutely have to order a skirt steak, because theirs are always mouth watering! We drool over every cut of meat we receive from US Wellness, but skirt steak is definitely one of our top picks. Skirt steak is one of those cuts of beef where it almost seems like a crime to do anything to it beyond a sprinkle of salt and a quick flip on the grill, so for this recipe we did just that. Salt, and a grill: that is all you need with skirt steak. To take the steak to the next level, we sauteed some white mushrooms in butter, garlic, and lemon zest. Amazing. This meal was totally drool-worthy, and I think we were both sad to see it end! ]]> Ketogenic Pizza with Bacon Crust Thu, 19 Oct 2017 14:52:04 +0000 Ketogenic Pizza with Bacon CrustFully paleo ketogenic pizza made with a bacon crust. ]]>
