Easy Recipe: Smashed Potatoes with Onions & Garlic

Diane Sanfilippo SIDES 16 Comments

These smashed and roasted new potatoes aren’t a super-fast dish to make since they take a while to bake, but they’re so, so good that I recommend you make a double batch and simply re-heat them in an oven or toaster oven to enjoy for a few meals – they’re worth it! grain-free • gluten-free • dairy-free • egg-free • nut-free • seed-free • 21DSD (energy …

Skillet Peach Cobbler

I know I often claim that I don’t bake, but baking fruit with a crumbly-type of topping seems totally approachable for me. I figure it’s hard to mess this up, since baked fruit of nearly every kind is simply delicious. I had three bags of frozen peaches stock-piled from when I recently had a cold, since peaches are loaded with …

This year, Scott and I wanted to create an easy side dish to go with our Thanksgiving dinner since we were already tasked with making not only the turkey, gravy, and stuffing, but also cranberry sauce, antipasto skewers (from Gather), and an apple tart! Whew! We had a lot on our plates to make this holiday meal Paleo for the …

Chicken wings are probably one of the most fun proteins to eat. From tailgates to backyard barbecues, wings find their way into your hands whenever they’re around. Or maybe that’s just me. Attending college in upstate New York at Syracuse University (go Orange!), I think I probably ate my weight in chicken wings every year. Now, instead of wings that are …

Diane Sanfilippo BEEF, PORK, & LAMB 6 Comments

What’s the best dinner for a busy weeknight? The kind that is ready for me the minute I walk in the door. I may work from home, but that doesn’t mean that I am able (or willing!) to cook dinner every night. And while I’m the queen of quick meals, sometimes I’d like to eat something that requires more time …

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I miss potstickers and wontons. I’m not saying that I miss them enough to order Chinese take out, but the flavors and textures of those little Asian dumplings make powerful memories. Luckily for all of us, these cabbage-wrapped dumplings have all the flavor of their gluten-wrapped predecessors without the digestive distress, skin irritation, …

Sometimes eating Paleo just isn’t enough. Health issues from autoimmune diseases to symptoms relating to IBS, “leaky gut,” or even a Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) may require food restrictions beyond  a typical Paleo type of diet to help heal and keep the symptoms at bay. If you aren’t familiar with any of the above ailments, the acronyms “AIP” (autoimmune …
