Summer Fresh Potato Salad

Let’s face it; potato salad is NOT salad.  And if you’re making it with typical store-bought mayonnaise, it’s filled with some no-good types of fat and chemicals. Potatoes are delicious, and they are A-OK in my book, even though they are often vilified for being one of the “white foods” that are known to raise…

The Best Summer Salad is Peach Salad

August means stone fruits.  And stone fruits are delicious.  Peaches are probably my favorite of the bunch.  And sometimes summer is hot and you don’t want to cook anything.  Salads are a great way to not have to cook, but many people think salads are boring or gasp….gross.  I’m here with a recipe to change…

Gluten Free Zucchini Fritters

I’m baaaaaa-aaaack!!  It has been way too long since I’ve shared a recipe with you.  And now that I have a beautiful working kitchen again, I’m getting back in the groove. I spent the entire day today in the kitchen experimenting with a few things.  And I am pretty sure that this recipe is considered…

Master Cleanse Salad

Some of you may have heard of the Master Cleanse in which you spend a few days up to a few weeks drinking a concoction of water with lemon juice, Grade B maple syrup and cayenne pepper.  Now, I’m not going to go into my thoughts and opinions on cleanses as I feel the validity…

Thai Beef and Coconut Lime Rice

I keep stacks of 1 lb packages of grass-fed ground beef in the freezer, and every now and again I feel like doing something other than making tacos (although tacos never get old.) This recipe is indulgent, rich, and completely satisfying when you really need to fill your belly, and with all of the labor…

Pastured Pork Steaks with Paleo Queso

This was one for the record books, folks.  My parents and I went in on a Berkshire hog some time ago, and I had a handful of cuts of meat in my freezer I’ve never tried before. I didn’t know pork could be cut into steaks, but now I do, and so glad for it!…

Blistered Shisito Peppers with Cashew Cream

I’ve started seeing shisito peppers on a lot of menus recently.  So when my husband was at Trader Joe’s and spotted a bag, he picked some up, and I decided to put my own spin on a version we had at a tapas restaurant a few weeks ago. Shisito peppers are one of those adrenaline…

Moroccan Chicken and Rice

There was a small Moroccan restaurant in the East Village of New York City that my husband and I went to several times before he was actually my husband.  It is the only Moroccan restaurant I have ever eaten in to this day, but I have never forgotten the deliciousness of the famous “tagine.” (tuhJEEN)….

Paleo Cauliflower Wraps

The other day I got my 3 year old to eat cauliflower for breakfast without knowing it.  Sure, I put butter (grass-fed) and jelly (organic) on it, but he ate cauliflower.  For breakfast. And he didn’t know it. How did I do such a thing?  I magically turned the cauliflower into round, flat patties, sort…

Firecracker Noodles (Caitlin Style)

Tonight, we were supposed to have leftover chili.  But we had an impromptu trip to our local gourmet hot dog restaurant last night.  Thank you Franktuary!  While I didn’t have a grass-fed hot dog this time, I did devour their kale miso salad with local pastured kielbasa.  It was delicious.  I also had a decent…
