March Meatball Madness

March Madness, an American college basketball competition, is celebrated in office betting pools and beer-soaked bars across the U.S. Although I am firmly an NFL football girl — and a Fug Madness girl — I’m also a girl that cannot resist alliteration. And meatballs. So, along with my husband Dave (tall enough for basketball but really more of a reader) and some paleo friends, I shared paleo... read more

Plantain Nachos

Tacos versus nachos. It’s a timeless rivalry with no clear winner. I think we can all agree that a basket of crispy things, ready to be smothered in tender, spicy meat and fresh toppings can perk up the most mundane Monday or woeful Wednesday… or Super Bowl Sunday! So why choose? This recipe combines the best of tacos and nachos — crispy, salty, spicy, sloppy — while ditching the soy, sugar,... read more

Sweet and Savory Pot Roast

I’m super excited to have a special guest blogger today! I got an email from 15-year-old Abby months ago, and my first reaction was “No way is this girl 14 years old!” She’s articulate, polished, and dang! she can cook. Today, she’s sharing some smart thinking on smart starches and a luscious recipe for Sweet and Savory Pot Roast. (And after you get your protein, don’t... read more

Turkey & Cranberry Meatballs

Thanksgiving – a.k.a, my favorite holiday – is just two weeks away. If you’re anything like me, all of the recipes popping up in my blog feeds, TV talk shows, magazine covers, and commercials have me craving those perfect-for-Fall flavors of earthy sage, tart cranberries, and juicy turkey. Why wait?! These Turkey & Cranberry Meatballs from my cookbook Well Fed 2 pack all of the yumminess of... read more

WF2 Recipe: Elvis Burger

Fasten your seatbelts, because I’m about to tell you a story that will eventually weave together Thanksgiving; Elvis; a restaurant in Venice, California; Sunbutter; and indoor grilling. Ready? Let’s begin. Thanksgiving has been my favorite holiday since I was old enough to start naming things as favorites. According to family lore, I once protested that we couldn’t start Thanksgiving... read more

WF2: Thyme-Braised Short Ribs

I promise every post isn’t going to be about the upcoming release of Well Fed 2: More Paleo Recipes For People Who Love To Eat, but it’s kind of my job to blab about it right now. Yesterday, I told you about the photos and the recipes. Today I’m giving you one you can try for yourself! The last time I placed an order for ground beef and steaks from TX Bar Organics, those friendly, sneaky... read more

Ćevapčići, Take 2 (My Recipe)

As I mentioned in this post from back in May, I ate a lot (A LOT!) of the skinless Balkan sausages called ćevapčići while we journeyed through Slovenia, Croatia, and Bosnia-Herzegovina. The ćevapčići were a really tasty way to get a protein infusion to balance the wine, beer, and kremšnita (ahem) that I was enjoying in a regular basis. Throughout our travels, I ate ćevapčići about 8 times, and... read more

Balkan Cevapcici (aka, Cute Sausages)

I’ve been eating grilled, flavorful, luscious, case-less sausages called ćevapčići (say it like “ch-VOP-chee-chee”) all over the place since we departed Prague to explore Slovenia and Croatia. These tasty little nuggets are available from street vendors and at sit-down restaurants, and can be served with kaymak cheese, chopped salad, french fries, and ajvar (a roasted pepper condiment... read more

The Egg Foo Yong Story

A few months ago, I had the great pleasure of collaborating with Nom Nom Paleo and FitBomb on a magazine piece about egg foo yong. The magazine went kerfluey and the story never got published, but I wanted to share it with you. Dig in! Things weren’t often exotic in rural Pennsylvania. I was seven years old, and my family lived in Orwigsburg, a small town tucked in the mountains between Amish farm... read more
