Crispy Sweet Potato Oven Fries

Sweet potato fries, made in the oven at home, that are actually crispy? YES! It is possible! I have tried so many different versions of this recipe since adopting a paleo diet and been disappointed with every single one. Sure, they tasted fine, but they were limp

Sage, Rosemary, and Garlic Salt

I love playing with herbs and spices in my cooking, so when I first went on the paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP) and had to eliminate both nightshades and seed-based spices from my diet, I thought I would simply die of food boredom! What saved me is this

Tostones – Fried Green Plantains

Tostones are my new obsession. I make them for breakfast at least a couple times a week, since discovering they were a great source of paleo and AIP-friendly starch. What are they? Tostones are fried green plantains and are also called patacones, fritos verdes, or banan peze

Chimichurri Sauce

If you’ve never had chimichurri sauce made from fresh herbs, plucked just moments before from the herb garden, then you don’t really know what chimichurri sauce is! I first fell in love with this Argentinean sauce when I was a young hipster living in Madison, Wisconsin and

Roasted Beet with Beet Greens and Grapefruit Salad

I’m broadening my food eating horizons here with this roasted beet and grapefruit salad. I even included the beet greens for extra nutritional punch and a zesty salad dressing with a surprise secret ingredient. The result is a delicious dish that is also completely paleo autoimmune protocol

Baked Fennel and Potatoes (Dairy Free)

Fennel is one of those rare vegetables that you can eat either raw or cooked, and tastes like two completely different foods depending on the preparation. Raw, it tastes distinctly like licorice and anise. Cooked, its flavor mellows and sweetens like a caramelized onion and imparts an
