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 […]

Grain Free Some-More-Ahh’s – Paleo/GF/DF*/SF

  My second favorite Girl Scout Cookie, next to Thin Mints, are the Samoas. Something about that gooey caramel, slightly crunchy cookie and toasted coconut, with the chocolate coated bottom for good measure – that would always make me eat a box (Hey, the boxes aren’t that big!) before I knew what hit me. Now-a-days I could probably […]

Thanksgiving Round-up

  I frequently get requests for my holiday recipes, and while just about all of them are in my cookbooks: The Healthy Gluten Free Life, Paleo Indulgences & Make Ahead Paleo, I thought having my go-to recipes all in one place would be handy for my readers. So here you go!  When it comes to […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The “We Don’t Really Know What the Actual ‘Book Release’ Date Was – So We’ll Celebrate Now!” Giveaway!!

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED – CONGRATULATIONS GOES TO MEGHAN BAUER FOR WINNING THE WHOLE SHE-BANG! You may have heard that I have a new book out? No? Well, maybe you heard it was out a few weeks ago, and then not, and then yes, and then no…basically, there was a mess of a computer glitch, […]

A Make-Ahead Afternoon

I spent yesterday afternoon with a wonderful girlfriend of mine who is revamping some of the eating habits of her family.  This change was sparked by her daughter’s recent results of an allergy test.  The culprits?  Wheat, gluten and eggs.  Hmmm, sound familiar to anyone out there?  Maybe a few hundred thousand or so, right?  Well, after […]
