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 for people who are following the autoimmune protocol […]

AIP Strawberry Shortcake

I will happily eat strawberries plain, but my second favorite way to enjoy these seasonal beauties is in a strawberry shortcake. But what if you are following the paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP)? This year I was determined to create a gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free, dairy-free, and egg-free version of this summer treat that still had a tender […]

Paleo Fish and Chips (AIP)

I was pretty sure I had nailed this recipe for an AIP friendly fried fish the minute I took the first filet out of the fryer and broke through the crispy coating. Popping that morsel in my mouth confirmed it and instantly took me back to my Wisconsin childhood… the only difference was that this fried […]

Homemade Hemp Milk

If you want a Paleo alternative to dairy milk, you have two choices: almond milk or coconut milk. Right? Wrong! It’s time to consider a third option: hemp milk. I was honored to be asked to share my simple recipe for homemade hemp milk on the Paleo Parents blog this week. Head over to their […]

Paleo Gingersnaps… made with cassava flour!

Gingersnaps made with cassava flour? What’s that, you ask? It’s sweeping the world of gluten-free and paleo-friendly baking! You can use it as a one-to-one substitute for wheat flour in most conventional recipes without the need to add any extra ingredients and it has a completely neutral flavor, so it works well in both savory and sweet […]

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 barbecue grill which is likely buried under snow […]

Spiced Cranberry Pot Roast (Pressure Cooker)

I am in love with a kitchen appliance and I’m not ashamed to admit it. I feel like an infomercial when I talk about it (It sautes! It steams! It’s a pressure cooker! It’s a slow cooker! And that’s not all… It even makes yogurt!). And I am not lying when I say that I […]

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 “meatball-iness.” Or rather, they are heavy on the “meat” […]

Paleo Tuna Cakes

These grain and dairy free paleo tuna cakes were my answer to a three-day work conference where I knew my food options would be limited to whatever the conference organizers saw fit to provide for a “gluten free” lunch. I froze them and packed in a cooler with ice and they provided a tasty and safe […]
