Chinese Coconut Shrimp (Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

Chinese Coconut Shrimp (Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

I have a confession to make. My husband is not a big seafood fan (aside from fish) so many seafood dishes you see on my blog end up being all eaten by me… and not always in more than one seating ūüôā As adverse as he is to things like shrimp and lobster, on the […]

Beef Steak Chinese-Style (Paleo, Gluten-Free)

This is my third baby and I can’t for the life of me remember at what point I should be have the baby’s clothing, sleeping space and hospital bags ready. At this point if Michael Jr arrives, he is going to snooze in a drawer wearing some pink onesies. At least he will have diapers. […]

Homemade Condensed Milk (Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free)

Homemade Condensed Milk (Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free)

Ah I really missed condensed milk when we started Paleo. Thankfully, it isn’t hard to make yourself a version using just two ingredients – full cream coconut milk and honey.

Primal Chocolate Strawberry Treats (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

Primal Chocolate Strawberry Treats (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

My husband sent me roses yesterday, sweet man. It was a very late Valentines (we were on vacation in New Zealand) but it was lovely anyway. So I got in the spirit of things and made these really easy and decadent chocolate strawberry treats. Definitely not Whole 30-friendly or recommended for every day eating but […]

Chinese Poached Chicken/Bak Chit Gai (Paleo, Gluten Free)

I read this article¬†about Yahoo! CEO, Marissa Mayer’s No-Work-From-Home policy change for the organization and it does nothing to change my view of them and their value to my life. I remember when Yahoo! was cool back when I was a young ‘un in college. But it never kept up with the world in terms […]

Chinese Steamed Striped Bass (Paleo, Gluten-Free)

How many days do you get to come home from work and use an epic movie one-liner like this?   Technically, the fish came from the store but I’ll take it because it was quite funny when my husband delivered this line tonight. Find yourself a nice whole fish that has been scaled, gutted and […]

Cast Iron Skillet Seared Eye Fillet/Beef Tenderloin with a Red Wine and Mushroom Sauce (Primal, Gluten-Free)

I had my 30 week checkup today and this baby is growing like a weed. I passed my glucose tolerance test I mentioned a few weeks ago in this post. The OB also congratulated me on passing my anemia test because he said it is very common for people to fail this one. It gave […]

Mark Antony and Cleopatra, Romeo and Juliet, Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. Like many famous romances in history, bacon and shrimp may come off initially as an unlikely pair but once you have them together, you know it’s meant to be (minus the tragic endings). If you’ve never had the two things together, you need […]

Teriyaki Chicken/Tori Mayo (Paleo, Gluten Free)

  I’m back from my New Zealand holiday! I sure missed my kitchen and I don’t ever want to see the inside of an airplane again for a loooooong time. Imagine sitting in Economy with a giant third trimester belly and a 22 lb toddler lying on you for 12 hours… it isn’t pleasant. The […]
