Bacon and Beef Frittata

Recipes posted a year ago:

I got the inspiration for this recipe after talking with Adam at CrossFit Fort Vancouver.  We spend plenty of time talking about food as it is, of course, one of our favorite subjects.  I love to walk in and hear him say, ” We made (insert food dish here) last night and it was good!” I reply back excitedly, “Oh yeah?  How much of (insert meat, veggie, and/or spice here) did you put in?” His reply is ALWAYS, “well, we didn’t measure, we just threw together what sounded good. I brought some for my lunch. Want to try a bite?” I probably don’t need to tell you that my answer is ALWAYS a resounding, “Of course! Duh!” or something to that effect.  This gives me such a great feeling, not just the fact that I get to sample some food, but because experimenting, just throwing together what you think may taste great together, is a great measure of how far your own food knowledge has come.  Spending time in the kitchen has paid off.  Casey and I love to cook, it is true.  But, this honestly doesn’t seem to take as much time for us as it used to.  Yes, most of the time we are both in the kitchen cooking together which saves time and the more we learn, the more efficient we are.  Great food in less time.  Alas, you do not have to spend the time that we have.  Take advantage of our site.  We are happy to do the experimenting for you! I digress.

Chicken-Fried Steak

Recipes posted a year ago:

This is one of those great comfort foods which is most likely found on any typical American menu in the U.S.  I have this vision of a couple, back in the day, driving down Route 66 and stopping at a diner in the middle of nowhere where they can expect to find this listed at the top of the menu.

Interestingly, it has nothing to do with chicken.  It is also called pan-fried steak, which seems a bit more fitting I suppose, but doesn’t leave much to the imagination (um, how did they get “steak” from a “chicken”?).  I did forego the gravy for this particular meal.  I opted with a nice side of sauteed mushrooms (if you have not tried this, I highly suggest cooking some up, seriously, do it now. You will not regret it).

Paleo Fish and Chips

Recipes posted a year ago:

I mentioned having fish for dinner and so my daughter thought we should try some fried fish as she heard my grandfather used to fry fish all the time.  We actually didn’t cook up any “chips”, but you can find the recipe for sweet potato fries by clicking on this link.  I took some sweet relish and mixed it in homemade mayo and it turned out great for dipping (similar to tartar sauce)! Kids will enjoy helping with this one and will love the final result!

Grain-Free Chocolate Cupcakes

Happy Leap Day!!

Here is a great treat from a recipe that I modified from Paleo Parents.   Prep time is minimal and you have the option of making regular size cupcakes or small, bite size.  The bite size makes a lot and are perfect to take to a potluck or other social gathering.  I actually made 12 regular size cupcakes and had enough batter leftover so I made 12 smaller ones too. This is a great one to trick your friends with as there really is no way to tell the difference between a “regular” cupcake and these.  A wonderful option is to freeze the little ones and grab one when you feel like having a quick treat.  They will last quite a while in the freezer.

Chicken Pot “Pie” Soup

Recipes posted a year ago:

In the past we have enjoyed a great chicken pot pie recipe, but of course the word “pie” generally insinuates some type of crust which often contains wheat.  I suppose I could have made up my own crust from almond flour or another grain-free flour, but really lets be honest… I just like the filling.   This is delicious and smells so good!  You can use most any type of vegetables that you have on hand for this.  “Think outside the recipe.”

Grain-Free Cinnamon Muffins

Recipes posted one year ago:

My oldest daughter asked me to make cinnamon rolls.  Those of you who have no flour in your house at all know this can be tough.  I admit that I do miss cinnamon rolls…sometimes, but working at a local donut shop when I was in high school pretty much cured me from craving such things too often.  I found a great recipe here at the Cavewoman’s Kitchen and modified a bit with what I had.  The result was fantastic and kid approved!

Orange Primal Cake

I like to see more blogs popping up with paleo/primal recipes.  I love that people are willing to share their healthful recipes with the world.  Take advantage of this, but in turn let the bloggers know how they are doing.  Make a comment. We all want to hear what variations you tried, what worked or didn’t.  This  may also help the next person willing to try the recipe.   Thank you so much for all the feedback we have received!

This delicious dessert was modified from a recipe on the site, She Cooks, He Cleans. Great recipes here and Nancy is also a supporter of our site as well. Thank you!
