Spatchcocked Tuscan Grilled Chicken (AIP, SCD)

Situation: It’s July and it is hot and humid. I’d rather grill outside, where it already feels like an oven, than turn on the oven in the kitchen! Chicken pieces might be an obvious choice for making Tuscan grilled chicken but whole chickens are more economical and

One Pan Salmon & Rainbow Chard with Garlic & Tarragon (AIP, SCD)

There are a lot of things I could say about this salmon and rainbow swiss chard recipe, but I’ll start off with the most important: ONE PAN. You make the whole thing in a single skillet, so there is little to clean up at the end. It

Pork Spare Ribs with Peach Cherry BBQ Sauce (AIP, SCD, InstantPot)

I’ve cracked two codes with this BBQ pork spare ribs recipe! These are fall-off-the-bone tender pork spare ribs that don’t take all day to cook with an easy but delicious AIP compliant sauce. Most of the cooking is done in a pressure cooker but you can finish

Chicken & Mushroom Stew with Celery Root & Marjoram (AIP)

Celery root has recently become one of my favorite vegetables… and until not long ago, it was completely foreign to me. Ditto for several other ingredients in this delicious chicken & mushroom stew. Leeks? Bring them on! Shiitake mushrooms? Get in my tummy now! And marjoram? Oh

Grilled Curry Shrimp (AIP, SCD)

Grilling season is here and these curry shrimp skewers are an easy and flavorful break from the ordinary burgers and other typical BBQ fare. Shrimp tends to be a people pleaser (it is one of only two “creatures who swim” that the picky eater in my house

The 1950 classic edition of Betty Crocker’s Picture Cookbook describes American Potage as “A quick, savory, meat-and-vegetable soup.” Start to finish it takes a bit more than 1 whole hour to make and a significant investment of labor in the form of peeling and chopping vegetables, which

Multi-Purpose InstantPot Shredded Beef (AIP, SCD)
