Tomato-Free Red Snapper Livornese (AIP, SCD)

Fish cooked in the Livornese style usually means a tomato based sauce, but my version of the classic Tuscan dish takes out the tomatoes entirely so that people who are on the autoimmune protocol or who otherwise need to avoid nightshades can still enjoy the incredible flavor

King Trumpet Oyster Mushrooms with Chicken and Kale (AIP, SCD)

I didn’t set out to create this recipe; it created itself! Boneless chicken thighs, a few pieces of bacon, a bunch of kale, and some gorgeous king trumpet oyster mushrooms were all rolling around my refrigerator one day and I decided to see what turned out when

Chicken & Mushroom Cabbage Rolls (AIP, SCD)

These updated chicken cabbage rolls share only two things in common with the cabbage roll made by the descendents of Eastern European immigrants and popular on potluck tables of my childhood. The cabbage. And the roll. Everything else is completely unrecognizable… and that’s a good thing! A

Thai Green Curry Shrimp (AIP)

Believe it or not, the exotic and infiniting interesting flavors of Thai green curry adapt extremely well to the requirements of the autoimmune protocol (AIP) because the dishes are mostly dairy and gluten-free already. If you don’t need to avoid nightshades or other spices, you can use

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

It’s zucchini season in my part of the world and I’ve discovered that the very best way to enjoy it is fresh and with as little alteration as possible. This zucchini relish, served with some seared or grilled medium-rare ahi tuna steaks, is a beautiful showcase for

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
