Today’s recipe is courtesy of Russ Crandall, author of The Ancestral Table and the blog The Domestic Man. Russ is the kind of cook I like: totally committed to exploring international flavors and making the traditional recipes fit into a healthy template. This recipe introduces us to the flavors of Indonesia with ginger-infused meatballs snuggled in an aromatic broth.

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.
So, along with my husband Dave (tall enough for basketball but really more of a reader) and some paleo friends, I shared paleo...

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,...

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...

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.
These Turkey & Cranberry Meatballs from my cookbook Well Fed 2 pack all of the yumminess of...

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...

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...

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...

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...
