Maple Caramelized Onion and Mushroom Burger with Red Onion Jam (Paleo / AIP)

disclaimer: this post may contain affiliate links.

Oh, the burger. It remains, for me, among the most comforting of comfort food. Burgers and fries just seem synonymous with a good experience, no? Being something of a foodie, when I want a burger, I want something more than just your basic. A bit of glamour. A bit of pizazz.  Burgers have actually been …

Paleo Pumpkin Pie Chocolate Chip Gelato (Dairy / Gluten Free)

It’s that time of year again. And I’ll admit it, whenever fall rolls around, even if just one week earlier I’d sworn to myself that I wouldn’t fall prey (no pun intended!) to its charms, by mid September I am totally hooked. I’m talking about pumpkin spice, of course. That earthy blend of cinnamon, cloves, …

Venison “Hamburger Helper” + NEW Cookbook!

disclaimer: this post may contain affiliate links.

When I first published this recipe, I made it with a yucca topping, a Venison Shepherd’s Pie. As delicious as that was, it also took about an hour to make. While I know cooking food for the Autoimmune Protocol diet can be time-consuming, I wanted to make a spin on this dish that was equally …

Seafood Salad with Quick Pickled Veggies (Paleo / AIP / Whole30)

Traveling, Healing, Reflecting: Hello, friends. It has been a whirlwind of a summer: travel travel and more travel. And we aren’t finished yet! Thursday we head to the Cape, the outer part, where the crowds are a bit thinner and the landscape, a bit wilder. Perhaps it is coincidence that change has been part of …

Sweet Potato and Summer Vegetable Salad with Anchovy Dressing (Paleo / AIP / Whole30)

disclaimer: this post may contain affiliate links.

Summer salads: what images come to mind? A bed of lettuce with some lonely carrots and tomatoes lying on top? Or something more diverse? While summer salads can certainly mean basic, they can also mean a bit more luxurious. Isn’t this what summer is all about, anyway? Everything is at its peak: berries so perfectly …

Zucchini Berry Noatmeal Breakfast Bowl (Paleo / AIP)

disclaimer: this post may contain affiliate links.

Zucchini as an oatmeal substitute? Nah. That was my thinking, anyway, when I first heard of it. Sure, I’d embraced organ meats, sardines, previously unknown veggies like celeriac and parsnips…but zucchini for breakfast? No thank you! But – and I love this – we are not only allowed to change, it is actually a beautiful …

Papaya and Fennel Salad with Blueberry Dressing (Paleo / AIP)

disclaimer: this post may contain affiliate links.

Developing recipes has, simply, become a joy for me. Discovering how flavors intermingle, weighing the flavor combinations, is like a meditation. Of course, finding ways to turn American classics into beloved AIP versions is still a goal. But this summer, my desire is to look for delicious, fun, and new kinds of flavors. Dispel the …

Caramelized Peach and Basil Ice Cream (Paleo / AIP)

disclaimer: this post may contain affiliate links.

I’ve made it my mission this summer to make ice cream flavors I have always wanted to try, but couldn’t find. At my heart, I am a foodie, always searching for unique and interesting flavor combinations. I just need to keep them all (well, mostly all) AIP-style! While I do miss conventional ice cream, dairy …

Vietnamese Summer Roll Salad (Paleo / AIP)

disclaimer: this post may contain affiliate links.

We’re having a heat wave here in the Northeast. Yesterday topped at just about 100 degrees, and today promises similar temps. This morning, as I practiced my yoga, sweat rolled down my face and neck. I was uncomfortable. Yet I reminded myself that, months ago in the dead of winter, I longed for and anticipated …

Grilled Peaches with Lime Dip (Paleo / AIP)

disclaimer: this post may contain affiliate links.

When I set out to make this recipe, I initially despaired: how would I find peaches a month before peach season had even begun? Then, serendipitously, I met my newest neighbor, Katie. Katie, it turned out, was related to the Dickeys, owners of Dickey Farms, in Musella, GA. And guess what Dickey Farms had?! In …

Beet Pancakes with Blueberries (Paleo, AIP)

If you love beets, you will love these pancakes! Even if you don’t love beets, you’ll still love them! Even though they pack a solid nutritional punch, the beets used here don’t impart any “beet” flavor. They are a perfect way to celebrate July 4th brunch – or any old time of year! My original …
