Roasted Garlic Parsnip Puree

  Serves 2 I was never a big fan of parsnips, until I made this puree! It’s so simple to throw together and the roasted garlic and duck fat give it a decadent flavor everyone loves.   2 lb parsnips 1/4 cup duck fat or tallow, melted (or coconut oil) 2 tsp coarse sea salt […]

Slow Cooker Pork Roast with Red Onion Salsa – Paleo/GF/DF/EF/SF/NF

  This is a variation of my Dutch Oven Pork Roast recipe that appeared in my book, The Healthy Gluten Free Life. I wanted to add a little more flavor, a little more kick to the original, so I swapped out the yellow onion for a red onion, and added two jalapenos. I also had […]

Toasted Spiced Pumpkin Seeds – Paleo/GF/DF/EF/SF/NF

  This simple snack and garnish appeared in my very first cookbook, The Healthy Gluten Free Life. But I share it with you today so you can go forth and make seeds! Great by themselves, sprinkled on salads or tossed on Butternut Squash Soup, these spiced pumpkin seeds deliver great taste and nutrition.  Pumpkin seeds possess anti-inflammatory […]

Creamy Beef & Green Bean Casserole with Pearl Onions & Crispy Shallots – Paleo/GF/DF/EF/SF/NF

  This recipe is from my latest book, Make Ahead Paleo, but I’m giving you a sneak peek, just in time for the Holidays!!  While I normally make this as a main-dish, for Thanksgiving we are making it without the beef as a simple side to the star of the meal – the turkey! Here’s the original recipe […]

Cranberry Sauce – Paleo/GF/DF/EF/SF/NF

  I love cranberry sauce for its tangy goodness, high antioxidants, and its versatility.  We use this tangy sauce for the Thanksgiving and Christmas, plus use any leftovers to make Cranberry Chicken Fingers (from pg.136 in The Healthy Gluten Free life) and I even use it to make zesty Cranberry Vinaigrette (from pg.257 in The Healthy Gluten Free […]

Sausage Veggie Stuffing – Paleo/GF/DF/EF*

  This was a reader favorite recipe from my first book, The Healthy Gluten Free Life, so I wanted to share it with everyone for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Originally made with gluten free bread cubes (delicious!), I adapted it to our paleo lifestyle and no-one complained a bit! Oh, and I call it stuffing, […]

Pumpkin Martinis

  I had to share yet another fantastic holiday recipe from my first book, The Healthy Gluten Free Life! The first time we made these surprisingly delicious drinks at Thanksgiving everyone responded the same way, “Pumpkin, in a martini?”  It didn’t sound great but we gave it a go anyway, and we are so glad […]

Butternut Squash Soup – Paleo/GF/DF/EF/SF/NF

  Because this is one of my all-time favorite soups, I’m giving you the recipe, straight from my first book, The Healthy Gluten Free Life! As soon as the evenings turn cool, this soup is being made on the stovetop. It’s simple, yet filling. Creamy yet dairy-free. And if you’re strict paleo, you can omit […]

No Bake Pumpkin Tarts – Paleo/GF/DF/EF

  Since Thanksgiving is fast approaching, I thought for this week, I’d post a few of my favorite recipes for the big day. Today, I’ll start with an easy alternative to your traditional pumpkin pie – No Bake Pumpkin Tarts from my second book, Paleo Indulgences!! Nothing beats individual desserts at holiday get-togethers. I mean, they’re cute, […]

Make Ahead Breakfast Sausage Patties

  One breakfast staple in our house is the almighty Sausage Patty! Why? Well, because I can use just about any ground meat I’d like, season it the way we want, leave out the sugar and God knows what else commercial sausages have in them, and do it for a lot less money. But the best reason […]
