Alfredo Flatbread Pizza

Sometimes nightshade-free nomato sauce just doesn’t quite hit the spot like you want it to.  For instance: On pizza.  I am a fan of using ye olde pumpkin puree + beet duo to snazz up an Italian stew or zoodle dish here and there (and especially in my No-Cook AIP BBQ Sauce), but for some…

Mongolian Beef

A little sticky.  A little sweet and salty.  Lots of crispy beefiness.  When served over your favorite type of riced vegetable, this Mongolian Beef makes a taste bud wanna sing. Traditionally this dish is served as a sticky, spicy and mildly sweet main course with beef and lots of bulb onion.  I’ve made this easier…

Instant Pot Smoky Mocha Chili

Smoked tea leaves.  Coffee.  Chocolate.  Roast beef.   Those ingredients inspired my brain for this Paleo Smoky Mocha Chili when Hunni mentioned there was gonna be a chili cook off at the club house of our new apartments.  Then I thought, “What a great way to meet our new neighbors!” (And a great way to show…

Cajun Red “Beans & Rice”

Hoo eeee!  This Paleo Cajun Red Beans and Rice dish is a spicy one.  Of course, you could tone down the heat if you need to.  For AIP, be sure to follow the instructions in red. To make this Creole favorite grain-free, I’ve replaced the white rice usually called for with the good ol’ Paleo…

Chayote Cucumber Sausage Hash – Paleo, Keto, AIP, Whole 30

Anyone else a huge diner food foodie? I’m a fan of fancy French and Japanese delicacies, all tidy and decorated and haute-couture styled, don’t get me wrong. But on the day to day, its nice to enjoy a big bowl of messily thrown-together grub. Enter the heap of hash. Meat, vegetables, spices…and if you want…

Surf & Turf Scampi Lettuce Cups – AIP, Low-FODMAP, Whole 30

Shrimp Scampi and Garlic Steak. Who says they only need to go with a baked tater and a house salad? Let’s combine the two succulent proteins, and pile them high on top of cool, crisp romaine hearts. And just to show off, we’re gonna sorta smother everything with creamy herbed vinaigrette. This recipe is friendly…

Beefy Cheesy Nachos – AIP, Paleo

Love nachos? Miss cheese? Alrighty, then.  Let’s talk Zucchini Cheese.  What IS it?  Well, its this pretty-awesome cheese-like substance that is made of vegetables, seasonings and gelatin!  Some recipes have carrots added to them, some use cauliflower, and some I’ve seen use just zucchini as the base.  That’s what we’re doing today with our zucchini…

Steak & Mash with Leek Crisps – AIP, Paleo, Whole 30

I had a mashed potato craving.   And that usually goes right alongside a steak craving, y’all.  So, guess what? This carrot mash with leeks made its debut on the menu the other evening!  Hunni and I had our date night in with two lovely beef filet steaks with the mash.   Thanks to Beyond…
