Garlic and Herb Lamb Riblets (AIP, Paleo, Instant Pot)

My dear blog friends… I am so sorry that I have neglected you these past few months! It seems like one minute it was March, then I blinked and here it is already the middle of June. A number of things have been taking up my time,

Easy Yuca Oven Fries (AIP)

Since “going paleo” a few years ago, I have been introduced to a number of new-to-me foods that I now love, and high atop that list are yuca fries! Known and loved as yuca frita in much of Latin America, they are a great alternative to traditional french fries

Paleo Huli Huli Chicken Wings

These Hawaiian chicken wings are my way of capturing the flavors of the islands in a bite size package and paying homage to the tradition of the grilled huli huli chicken, but without out any of the junky ingredients you’d find in a bottled sauce or the

Paleo Meatballs that will fool your Italian grandmother! (AIP-friendly)

It has been well established that paleo meatballs do not NEED a binder like bread or breadcrumbs to hold their shape. Recipes for grain free and dairy free meatballs can be found and most of them taste really good. But they still lack a certain authenticity, a softness, a

Paleo Plantain Chips and Easy Guacamole

Zesty Marinated Olives

These marinated olives are a pretty addition to a spread of party food and offer a nicely complex flavor contrast to the usual other finger foods. They fit it into pretty much anyone’s diet, whether it be paleo or vegan or low-carb, and work nicely with most

Paleo Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Stuffed mushrooms have always been one of my favorite appetizers, but most recipes use gluten-filled breadcrumbs and lots of dairy. Delicious, but not compatible with a paleo eating template. Crab cakes are another favorite of mine but the paleo-versions of them just don’t hold together very well.

Sweet and Sour Paleo Meatballs

In my pre-paleo days, my favorite family recipe for cocktail meatballs was one of those three ingredient wonders. Sounds nice and simple, until you realize that each one of those three ingredients (a can of cranberry sauce, a bottle of chili sauce, and frozen meatballs) contained an

Chili Spiced Mango Paleo Chicken Wings

When I started planning my first paleo party, I knew one thing had to be on the menu. Paleo chicken wings! My husband is one of those “the hotter, the better” people and I was on board with that too, provided I could drown my extra-hot wings
