Avocado toast has become one of the “it” breakfasts these days. Avoiding bread has meant missing out, until now! In my Paleo Avocado Toast recipe, thin potato slices replace the toast, and the flavor is reminiscent of loaded potato skins once it’s all stacked up—and it’s to die for. Prep some potatoes ahead to reheat in a toaster oven for …

Diane Sanfilippo BEEF, PORK, & LAMB 2 Comments

Beef shanks can be a confusing cut of meat, but they’re often one of the most affordable, especially when you buy grass-fed. A slow-cooker or enameled cast iron Dutch oven pot do a good job of making this tougher cut of meat tender and delicious. Use any stew-ready or braising cut of meat you like if you don’t have beef …
