Pecan Crusted Chicken with Mustard Date Sauce

So hard to wait 45 minutes...

As I mentioned yesterday, we served our pesto spaghetti squash with an AMAZING new recipe of pecan crusted chicken rolled in my mustard date sauce.  Inspiration struck when my friend Gus came up to me at the gym and said, “We did this pecan crusted chicken last night, but you know what would make it […]

Pesto Spaghetti Squash

Perfect summer accompaniment

Spaghetti squash is one of my favorite paleo foods.  Unfortunately, because it takes so long to bake in the oven (about 30-45 mins), it’s not something I typically make on the weekdays.  On weekdays I try to keep my cooking time to 20 minutes in the kitchen in any hope of keeping dinner time before […]

Coconut Flour Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce

Pure Breakfast Heaven

For the first time in about 8 weeks, I was actually home on a Sunday morning with nothing to do and no responsibilities, which meant it was the perfect time to try out a new paleo pancake recipe on F, who of course was more than happy to oblige.  I’ve done several paleo pancake recipes […]

Scallop and Shrimp Ceviche

Perfect for a hot summer day!

Citrus is undoubtedly one of my favorite tastes.  Give me some lime or lemon zest, and I’m on board.  I even tend to make a little Ziploc baggie of lime/lemon slices and carry it with me to work to flavor my water.  This was my first time making ceviche, and I was a little skeptical […]

Crockpot Thai Curry Chicken

Can't go wrong with a crockpot...

CONFESSION:  I made this this week, and it smelled amazing when I put it in the crockpot, and all through the cooking, but wouldn’t you know, I got stuck at the gym and left it on an HOUR longer than it was supposed to go.  Needless to say, mine was a little bit crispy.  If […]

Paleo Onion Rings

MMMM onion rings without the deep fried yuckiness!

No, your eyes do not deceive you.  Yes, you actually just read something that says “paleo onion rings.”  I experimentally whipped these up last week with low expectations, and we wound up being blown away.  These are great for entertaining (albeit a little messy), and also one of those great dishes for your family/friends/neighbors/kids that […]

BBQ Beef Brisket

Worth the 6 hour wait :)

I KNOW it has been forever (1 week) since I last posted.  Some of you are probably like “Cmon guy, step your game up.”  Well, what happened to me last week is what happens to ALL of us – my life got out of control with teaching CF classes, working the regular day job, and […]

Peach and Cantelope Cobbler

peach cantelope cobbler

I actually have to be honest – I didn’t have one bite of this cobbler.  I made it, and then wasn’t feeling well that night so I didn’t dip into it, and lo and behold next time I went around to try it, it was gone.  Forrest claimed Cappie ate it, but I’m pretty sure […]
