I just bought a side of grass fed beef. The good news is it's healthy. The bad news is I got a bunch of round steak to cooking. I desperately need a good, yet simple Paleo round steak recipie. It HAS to be kid friendly, and the... (more)
My friends birthday is coming up and she wants me to make her super healthy brownies. I'm trying to make them as paleo as possible, but I want to make sure she loves them. She loves dark chocolate. If I make her anything, it has to include dark... (more)

I buy the organic pre-washed greens from earthbound. Their 50/50 spinach/spring mix + left over turkey, tomato, onion, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper BOOM awesome salad. Add feta for extra awesome.
I mash up some frozen bananas to make banana soft serve (sometimes with coconut flakes, some nuts, or some cocoa powder, it's like a blizzard from DQ!) and then top it with some coconut cream, yummmm!

It stares at me every time I open the freezer, passing it by for something more obviously enjoyable. I have decided to face it and try it out. I know I recently read some article in the paleosphere about a delicious tongue recipe, but I don't... (more)
I want to make my brother pumpkin pie and apple pie, but he has a severe nut allergy. I've made him paleo muffins with coconut flour before that have turned out well but I cannot seem to get a good pie crust using just coconut flour. Does anyone... (more)
What is your best fall squash recipe using these squashes? I just bought an acorn squash, butternut squash, and spaghetti squash. I wanted to possibly bake them with some cinnamon, but I was wondering, do you get rid of the outside? Do you carve... (more)
I have been unable to find a gluten and soy free Worcestershire sauce commercially-- does one exist? If not, is there are tried and true homemade recipe (perhaps using coconut aminos?) I currently use French's which is gluten free, but the soy... (more)
Lea & Perrins is the original Worcestershire sauce, and is widely available. It contains neither soy nor gluten. In fact, in a cursory look at the ingredients label, it doesn't have other funky ingredients, either. Real food, I'd say.
Ok there are similar but not quite same questions. Does anyone have links to good recipes for egg whites? Particularly dessert-y recipes that are pseudo paleo to the extent sugars are somewhat minimized and processed powders along the lines of... (more)

So I understand the thin line with dairy and paleo. (if you're hardcore dairy is blasphemy.) but whats the deal with types of cheeses that are okay. I have a recipe ready using pears, roquefort, and almonds but was curious if bleu cheeses are out... (more)
Depends on you! If you feel ok after eating blue cheese, I would say go for it as a treat! If you feel terrible after eating it obviously I would mostly avoid. Paleo is a template!!!
I just wanted to post a follow up on my experiments with "Pork Bread" (made using crushed pork rinds). After the initial success of my sandwich bread, I decided to make a pizza using the pork -based bread for a crust. The resulting flat-bread was... (more)
I've got some stew meat that I want to cook up in the crock pot, but I want a recipe that doesn't use any tomatoes (diced or paste) or red wine. Is there something else I can use as a base? Or do I even need a "base"? I'll be perfectly happy if... (more)
I thought I'd start a conversational sort of thread here with a nice simple question - what are you fine folks cooking for dinner? (Or what did you cook for dinner?) If you're particularly proud of your culinary efforts, pop in a quick recipe as... (more)
Here are my recipes - do you have any to share? All of these make about a 2 cup serving (tall glass.) Banana-Beetroot Kefir "Milkshake." For some reason, the banana and beets compliment each other extremely well. More than they should. Both... (more)
I scored 2 pastured lamb kidneys for $0.88 from the butcher on my way home from work tonight! (I'm addicted to popping in to see what's there... I buy bones at least 3 times a week for stock :) So friends, what do I do with these babies? Please... (more)
When I was little my father used to make lamb kidney for breakfast on the weekends. He'd fry onions and add the chopped kidneys with lots of ground coriander, black pepper, and some cumin. Sometimes he would add mushrooms.
I am about to cook this oyster dish: http://leitesculinaria.com/1829/recipes-oysters-rockefeller.html For me it is very easy on the body, beneficial and TASTY! I'll add a bit of parmesan and a drop of hot sauce/fresh squeezed lemon. Most of the... (more)
My water kefir arrived in the mail (I bought some because Nance and Dragonfly take a lot about kefir/kombucha). What are some good ways to make it? Can I make it with apple juice? I'd like to keep it very simple. What sugar should I use? Do I have... (more)
So after getting my feet on the ground with paleo a year ago I???m actively converting my family???mostly my children who are 5 and 6. In their lunches I regularly put meatballs and salmon balls, almond butter, yogurt, fruit, veggies, coconut... (more)
As a variant to Christopher's answer, my family has made chicken nuggets using potato flour/flakes, sometimes with almond flour or coconut mixed in for flavor and texture. The potato helps hold in moisture, and I personally like the extra crunch. (more)
