Roasted Grapes with Pork Tenderloin Cutlets (AIP, Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 23, 2017 at 9:06am

Jams, sorbets, crisps, and cobblers are all delectable tricks for managing the bounty of the season and we should all continue to employ (and devour) them as often as possible. But in case you’re as smitten with the savory side of fruit as I am, roasting fruit with fresh herbs and olive oil is a…

Grilled Peaches with Ricotta, Crispy Prosciutto & Basil (Primal/Paleo, AIP, Whole30 Adaptable)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 12, 2017 at 9:24am

Oh man, it’s peach season, my favorite! I know I say they’re all my favorite – strawberries, blueberries, cherries – and that’s because they are. I love summer fruits, probably because I don’t eat all that much sugar otherwise, so I am in HEAVEN right now. The idea for this appetizer – or breakfast/brunch, my son…

Greek Sausage Skewers with Mint Chimichurri, Herb Yogurt & Spinach | Paleo, Primal, AIP, Whole30

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 28, 2017 at 5:23pm

Hellllloooooo official summer! Summer actually began for me when my son Nathan got home from school in May, so I feel like I’ve been in the groove for at least a few weeks. I LOVE when he’s home! He’s super busy with an internship, his girlfriend Sam, and going out with friends, but even just…

Eat Heal Thrive’s Ginger-Lime Sticky Chicky (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 27, 2017 at 12:10pm

Happy Weekend, my friends. I didn’t say Happy Memorial Day because the spirit of the day isn’t exactly happy. I think of it as a day for reflection and remembrance and even grief. Some people fret about the barbecues and partying that mark the holiday but I liken it to the meal after a funeral – gathering together with…

Beef, Bacon & Kale Meatballs (AIP, Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 17, 2017 at 6:45am

Do you batch cook (i.e. prepare large amounts of food) and freeze some of the bounty for later meals? If not, I suggest giving it a try because it’s a great way to guarantee that you eat nutritious, home-cooked food (instead of take-out or ordering in) on tired, busy nights. I’ll be honest, my freezer used…

Happy Mother’s Day! I’m being totally selfish and sharing with you what *I* would love for Mother’s Day: cool, creamy, sweet panna cotta. It is absolutely one of my Top 5 favorite desserts as evidenced by how many recipes I’ve shared with you here over the years. I appreciate that you can control the sweetness…

Chocolate Avocado Pudding (Paleo, AIP, Vegan)

Happy Sunday! What a beautiful weekend it’s been, I just love how Minnesotans (including me) are in a collectively good mood when the sun comes out and temps hit the 60s. I went for a long walk on Saturday and waved at everyone I saw and didn’t even feel like a weirdo. Tralalaaah! I’ll confess…

Crusty Roasted Pork Shoulder (Paleo, AIP, Whole30)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Mar 15, 2017 at 10:12am

You’d think, after the several pork shoulder recipes I’ve shared with you over the years, that I wouldn’t need to keep playing with new techniques. But I loooooooove me some pork shoulder and I got a hankering one day for a roast that was both falling apart tender AND crusty on the outside. So I…

Thanksgiving 2016 Menu

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 17, 2016 at 9:03pm

I taught my Paleo Thanksgiving class at Kitchen in the Market last Friday and wanted to share the recipes with you all. I LOVE Thanksgiving, every single part of it. Planning, shopping, cooking on my own ahead of time and then with the gang on the big day, setting the table, being with my family,…

Raw Tuscan Kale Salad With Chiles & Pecorino (Gluten-free)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 11, 2016 at 9:04am

This is now a classic kale salad, first published several years ago, back when kale salads were kinda new and weird. It’s still one of my very favorites for being simple, clean and bright, and just salty and rich enough to be memorable. It holds its own next to a beefy steak or humble roast…
