Green Tomato Curry – Paleo

Its getting to be winter here in California, and we are being left with an over abundance of green tomatoes. I posted recently about canning your left over green tomatoes. In addition to canning them we looked up some recipes for how people use green tomatoes, and then came up with this yummy dish. Continue reading “Green Tomato Curry – Paleo”

Cream of Asparagus Soup, Paleo

20161022_205314-1.jpgWe recently went through all our old books and either boxed them up or purged them. One of the areas purged was our cook book collection.  I had a full shelf of cookbooks from my mother, Sunset, Better Homes, etc. I only used a select few of those, and only 1 or two had sentimental value. My husband had his own shelf of cookbooks that he inherited as well. So we narrowed down our collections and have now only 1 shelf of cookbooks that we plan to keep for our homestead.

Over the weekend I went shopping and I picked up some asparagus to make some Cream of Asparagus soup. I wanted to make it paleo of course so when I was sitting with my husband, I whipped out my phone and said, “I need to look up a paleo cream soup.” Continue reading “Cream of Asparagus Soup, Paleo”

Fermenting Eggplant

20160716_111642-1-1.jpgTrying to decide what to do with our over abundance of eggplants, I came across this recipe from Cultures for Health.

I found the instructions sort of vague so I emailed their customer service and got some tips, so here is what I did for this recipe. I am bolding all the changes I made as well. Visit Cultures for Health for the original. Continue reading “Fermenting Eggplant”

Spicy Zucchini Pickles (Paleo Friendly)

These are the first pickles I have ever made (aside from ketimun). It instantly became my husband’s favorite. In fact, it’s pretty much all he’s been asking for since our zucchini started coming along in the garden. 🙂 Continue reading “Spicy Zucchini Pickles (Paleo Friendly)”

Paleo Spiced Nuts

So I talked on another post about how my husband tries to take food with him over the road (On the Road Trucker Food) and one of my readers suggested making some spiced nuts. I was inspired by this idea, so before he left for his next trip I made some. Boy were they good! Continue reading “Paleo Spiced Nuts”

Paleo Spicy Cucumber Salad With Almonds

A while back I discovered this lovely Cucumber Peanut Salad Recipe from 101 Cookbooks. It was a huge hit with the family and I get requests for it at parties. One problem.. It’s not paleo. Sure, I could fudge it and just eat the peanuts… and it is just a TINY amount of table sugar, right? What’s the harm, eh? Continue reading “Paleo Spicy Cucumber Salad With Almonds”

Paleo Nut Butters

Still trying to kick-start my Paleo lifestyle, I know I feel better, with more energy, happier outlook, (and NO pms!!!) when I follow a paleo diet. The problem…. eating paleo requires allot of planning and more time in the kitchen than a full time employee/full time student/full time mom can squeeze into her routine…

Well I am working on the planning part by accumulating recipes and ideas for foods and food substitutions for some of my favorite – GO TO – food items.

One of which is peanut butter… I love peanut butter… Continue reading “Paleo Nut Butters”

Veggie Crust for Pizza

Ok, I know I said I wasn’t going to post a bunch of recipes, but since starting this Paleo diet again I am forced to do allot of cooking. (Imagine that? Fresh food!) And honestly… I am just so darn proud of myself, I had to share. Continue reading “Veggie Crust for Pizza”

Paleo Veggie Crunch Salad

So, I have mentioned that I am NOT a foodie. 🙂 I don’t even have foodie quality photos! haha! And I will not be the one to post recipe after recipe, because usually I am fallowing someone else’s recipe anyway. Today is a slight exception however. Continue reading “Paleo Veggie Crunch Salad”

The Bones Make the Broth

I was 18 living on my own in Salt Lake City and I decided I wanted a nice homemade pot of chicken soup… just like mom makes. If you haven’t read it yet, check my post If It Doesn’t Come Out of a Box or a Can, I’m Not Making It. It explains a lot about what happens next. 🙂

I had a rough idea of what to do from watching my mom. You put the chicken in the water and cook for a while, then add the veggies and seasoning, etc. Easy peasy, right? Continue reading “The Bones Make the Broth”
