Chicken Pesto Pizza


I’ve maybe only met one or two people in my entire life that don’t like pizza.  If you don’t like pizza, you are an alien.  Or probably not my friend. Either way, your loss.  Making a paleo pizza is an awesome way to help you through the initial week of trying the Paleo diet – […]

Curry Chicken Salad

Food rainbow

Lunchtime is probably the biggest pain in the butt meal time for me when it comes to eating Paleo.  I know exactly what I want for breakfast and that’s easy, and I usually put on my Chef Boyardee hat for dinner.  But for lunch, I just want something that is easy (preferably already finished), cold […]

Coconut Shrimp


I am beyond thrilled to be back in a position in life where I am able to start blogging with Paleo Madeline again.  Sharing recipes and inspiring others to cook and have fun with food is something that really fulfills me.  Shifting your lifestyle from always buying ready-made food/eating out to preparing food for yourself […]

Indian Spiced Stew


As fate would have it, I made this recipe on the night last week where the winds were blowing so bad it felt like we were all about to go up Wizard of Oz style.  Those nights are the perfect nights to walk into your house and smell a stew that’s been slow cooking all […]

Bacon Laced Brussel Sprouts

bacon and brussels

I’m all about giving credit where credit is due.  And right now credit is definitely due to one of my best friends and her fiance.  She came up with this bacon brussel sprout goodness and was nice enough to spread the wealth and share it with me.  When she was explaining it to me at […]

Chorizo Mini Meatloaves with Chipotle Tomato Relish

chorizo finished

Excuse the language but: I’m back bitches. I know I’ve totally neglected this (along with all of my other hobbies) while I’ve been getting adjusted to the first six weeks of my crazy new job.  But now that I feel like I’ve gotten everything under control (and spent most of post-Thanksgiving getting all of this […]

“Kitchen Sink” Chicken Salad


We’ve all been in that moment: you open your fridge, looking for something to eat.  There isn’t anything made, but you do have 1/2 of a red onion, two stalks of asparagus, one leaf of kale, and a leftover chicken breast all about to go bad in like 10 minutes unless you eat them immediately.  […]

Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Pasta with Steak


Paleo madelinettes, I have really missed the sense of peace and happiness that I feel when I sit down to share a recipe with all of you.  I genuinely apologize for the brief hiatus I have taken – I had a job switch, a great vacation (although not too paleo), a torn meniscus and a […]

Spicy Meatballs in Simmer Sauce

Fry em up!

When I was little, some of my earlier memories are sitting on the counter watching my mom cook.  Of course, being the food lover that I am, I was always very into being the “taste tester” and going around and tasting the contents of each and every pot and pan.  The messier the better.  My mom […]
