Coconut Curry Crusted Flounder 1

This is a combination of flavors I just love, coconut & curry. Any mild firm fish can be used in place of the flounder and it can be filets or smaller pieces for “bite sized” fish fun for the kids. Fish is a favorite among our family, and we eat […]

The Great Lamb Shank Experiment

In an effort to move out of my comfort zone, I am trying to experiment with new protein sources. This particular recipe was derived for my friend Lana, the founder of EOM-Ethical Omnivore Movement and it’s sister page Mindful Meat Mondays. It’s important to me that my kids have the […]

Perfect Paleo Cranberry Citrus Relish 1

For those who wanted to try a healthier version of cranberry sauce, I guarantee it’s the best you’ve ever had.  Even if you think you hate cranberries – this is worth trying. For me, cranberries epitomize fall fruits. “Cranberry Sauce,” that gelatinized canned goo that you buy at the store […]

Paleo “pasta” salad with shrimp: 2

Here in Florida things are crazy, life is hectic and we are in between summer and fall.  The weather is weird, and the schedule is making me straight-jacket worthy.  Gymnastics, Baseball, Piano, School, Work, Homework – how do other parents function?! It’s been easy lately to fall back on my […]

citrus steamed artichokes with garlic & dill dipping sauce 16

I grew up in an italian household. As a child, one of my favorite foods was stuffed artichokes. My parents would stuff the leaves with a breadcrumb parmesan cheese mixture and olive oil then bake them in tin foil. This was a lot of work but crazy fun for me […]

Primal perfection cubed: figs, sheep’s milk feta and prosciutto 1

Coming home from AHS13 (the Ancestral Health Symposium) in Atlanta last week, I had a lot on my mind. After days of discussing food, nutrition and science and eating some of the most amazing organic and pastured foods, I was motivated to “create”. During AHS Russ (the Domestic Man) and […]

Chicken Nuggets and the End of Summer…

Wow it’s hard to believe school starts next week. Some days I’m ready, other day’s I’m not. I love the summer, but the rain this summer has kept us cooped up and it’s been hard to do all the things we wanted to, that was frustrating. On the other hand, […]

Margarita Spicy slow cooked Pork Loin with Avocado cream sauce 4

This was an experiment gone WAY right! As you know, our family of 5 eats a lot, so one of the reasons I like pork is that I can get decent sized cuts a little cheaper than beef, and pork goes great in the slow cooker. Crock Pot, one dish […]

Simple & Smokey Pork Roast

I really pride myself on simple food that tastes great, but takes little to no effort. As a mother of 3 with very little time of my own, feeding my family healthy has to also fit our lives. Pork loin is really one of my favorite inexpensive and flavor full […]

Popcorn Shrimp with Mango Jalapeno dipping sauce 14

So, this week I’m posting several recipes and there is a commonality in this week’s recipes : FRYING. Here’s the method to my madness; I wanted to make sweet potato fries using my deep fryer last week to attempt to get a crispier fry than I get in a pan. […]
