Primal Mavrodaphne

The inspiration for this dish is that it is a family recipe that I had never tried before.  My Mom sent the basic steps from my Cousin Daphne (the Vice Matriarch of our family), and said that she had not made the recipe recently, but remembered that the smell of […]

Paleo Buffalo Chicken Tenders

If there were a trend or theme of the past two months of my recipes it seems to be chicken.  I’m not worried that I’m in a rut.  There are not only a million ways to prepare and flavor chicken, but it is also rewarding to create healthier remakes to […]

Paleo Vegetable Curry Soup

Time for another break from animal protein in the form of a scrumptious vegetarian stew.  Curry is a magical blend of spices commonly available in so many varieties that you could never get bored with the flavor!  Not only that, but the turmeric that is in many curries contains curcumin […]

Paleo Italian Baked Cod

I love seafood and wish that I made it more often.  I am somewhat limited because the Commissary does not always have a fresh seafood section, but it is worth going out of my way to find some wild caught seafood now and then.  I found wild caught cod filets […]

Paleo Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

As a child, I was afraid of brussels sprouts.  I love cabbage in the form of my Mom’s coleslaw, steamed cabbage with corned beef at Easter, and could eat a gallon of sauerkraut, but brussels sprouts for some reason just did not appeal to me.  It seems that these days, […]

Paleo Stuffed Baby Portobello Mushrooms

The inspiration for this recipe was a cute and tasty appetizer for Valentine’s Day.  I was in the produce section of the grocery store, and saw a package of adorable baby portobello mushrooms.  Even though I didn’t have a “plan,” I could not resist buying them.  It turns out, this […]

Paleo Thai Chicken Meatballs with Peanut Sauce

The inspiration for this recipe came from a Thai chicken wings and peanut sauce recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens Skinny Slow Cooker magazine.  I was initially intrigued because I love the combination of peanut butter with asian flavors.  The Thai Peanut Sauce that I ended up making was a […]

Paleo Ranch Dressing

I have mentioned before that ranch dressing has a special place in my heart and food memories.  As a child, the little snack bowl-sized salad at dinner was probably my least favorite part of the meal.  The addition of ranch dressing not only made it tolerable, but delicious.  Ranch dressing […]

Paleo Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise is for more than just sandwiches.  It is a component of so many things: from creamy dressings, to dips… and even cakes.  The oil and egg add moisture and creaminess to whatever they touch.  The smallest amount can enhance a dish, classifying it as a comfort food in my […]
