Green (Not Bean) Casserole

Green bean casserole, you know the culprit–canned food mixed together and baked. Oddly enough, I think it may be the only holiday dish that’s made the same way by all regions of the U.S. No? It’s pretty tasty, I…

Thanksgiving Stuffing Hushpuppies

Stuffing is my most favoritest (I know this isn’t a word, but I want to illustrate my favoritism) part of Thanksgiving. My mom is the stuffing queen. Homemade bread, homemade chicken stock and a butt load of butter. Doesn’t…

Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped Peaches

Brandon and I got home late from the gym the night that the CrossFit Games started. Dinner needed to be  something I could throw together rather quickly, so we could watch the live stream. This recipe is based on…

Latin Fries with Chimichurri

French fries? How about Latin fries? Baked plantains crisp up just as nicely as fried potatoes, for a Paleo-friendly version of this guilty pleasure –for the salt-aholic, like myself. Ingredients 5 green plantains F.O.C. (fat of choice), we used…

Chipotle, Orange, Maple Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

Double baked equals double delicious. Sweet, spicy, salty and creamy all mixed up in one convenient, nutritional powerhouse. We are at a crossroads about dairy. We understand hard-core Paleo says “NO DAIRY”. Mark Sisson,  Kurt Harris, and many, many…

Paleo Oven Fried Green Tomatoes

Another classic Southern dish right hereeeeee! We’ve replaced the bread crumbs with almond flour (no big surprise there) and it gives a nice cornmeal-like crunch to the tomatoes. When you coat things to fry, you dredge in flour, then…

Paleo Hash Browns

I roasted a spaghetti squash one night, with no actual plan to include it in a meal–I had just neglected it for a few weeks, and started to feel like I was going to waste it if I didn’t…

Sesame Kale Salad

The grocery store I most frequent, 14 Carrot in Lexington, SC (for those of you local readers), makes a few salads and what-nots for the ready-made deli case. They’re really those wacky kind of foods like tofu, wheat grass…
