I can hardly call this pork chop sheet pan dinner a “recipe” as it is little more than arranging foods on a pan and setting a timer! But I wanted to share because the truth is that this is the way most meals in my house get

Chicken and Herb Dumplings Hot Dish (AIP)

Comfort food, plain and simple. This variation on chicken and dumplings is an AIP-friendly version of a dish that I grew up eating throughout my childhood in Wisconsin, especially during the busy school year. It was usually made from scratch, always with homemade dumplings and usually a

Grilled Ahi Tuna with Zucchini Relish (AIP, SCD)

The adventures of urban gardening continue and so does my desire to utilize every bit of what I grow… and so I give you turnip greens with pork this week! The picture may not be pretty but this humble dish is extremely satisfying and nutrient dense, as

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
