Cinnamon Chocolate Cranberry Sauce

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is almost here! I can’t wait 😀 I made a new twist on the traditional Thanksgiving side –> cranberry sauce. I added cinnamon and chocolate chips and served it hot. Normally on Thanksgiving, I have cold sliced jellied cranberry sauce, which I also love. This dish can be eaten along with Thanksgiving dinner or served as a dessert.   What are you making for Thanksgiving? Tell me in the comments!   See Also:  Paleo Pumpkin Pie…

Chive & Brown Butter Sweet Potato Fries

  So, I’ve been using Tin Star Foods grass-fed ghee for a few months now and it has become my favorite cooking fat (as well as a delicious addition to my coconut oil coffee) and last week I finally decided to try the grass-fed brown butter and… Oh. My. God. It was heavenly. I am now obsessed. The first day I put it in my coffee and then used it in the pie crust for my Chocolate Pudding Pie. Then as I…

Paleo Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken

      I haven’t ate fettuccine alfredo in years (since before going paleo in February 2012). Now that I’ve let myself indulge in the wonderfulness that is Cappello’s (cappellosglutenfree.com), I’ve started eating some of my childhood favorites again. Cappello’s products are unbelievable. They’re gluten-free, grain-free and out-of-this-world delicious. I got their multipack that comes with fettuccine, lasagna sheets, & gnocchi. I also got their cookie dough (which is paleo & vegan-friendly). All of their products are truly outstanding. I do have to…

Truffle Mashed Cauliflower

Truffles make everything better. Do yourself a favor, if you’re ever eating at Seasons 52, order the arugula truffle salad. You can thank me later. Truffle potatoes are another one of my favorites. While I do still eat potatoes, I love to make mashed cauliflower. It’s so delicious and lower in carbs. I make different variations of mashed cauliflower and usually just eyeball it and taste-test while I’m making it. I was asked about how I make my mashed cauliflower,…

The Ultimate Side Dish

  I love potatoes. And brussels sprouts. I really love pretty much all foods. This side dish combines starch and veggies to make what I like to call The Ultimate Side Dish.  This will go with anything and is even better with chopped bacon mixed in. Use a food processor to do your chopping for you and save on time. Easy- **** Fast- **** Spicy- no   Ingredients: 3-4 red potatoes, chopped 1/2 large yellow onion, chopped 4 garlic cloves,…

Roasted Chive & Onion Cauliflower

I truly love the flavor of the onion family. I recently bought dried chives and dried minced onions. I wanted to roast the cauliflower differently than I normally do, so I thought it would be perfect to use my new spices. This is very easy to make and a great versatile side dish. It tastes amazing and if you’re serving to non-paleo guests it would be great with some grass-fed cheese and bacon mixed in.   Easy- ***** Fast- ****…

Roasted Duck Fat Potatoes

I used to always roast my potatoes with olive oil. I came across duck fat while food shopping one day & decided to try using it on my potatoes instead of olive oil. They came out fantastic and I never used olive oil again! Everyone I have made these for has become obsessed as well. This recipe is so easy and perfect for serving to non-paleo guests! Some argue that only sweet potatoes are allowed on paleo, but that is…

Shaved Brussels Sprouts

This is a great side dish to serve for Thanksgiving dinner! This dish goes very well with turkey & potatoes. The bacon fat gives it the perfect flavor. This is a comforting dish that is super delicious & healthy! Look for packs of shaved brussels sprouts; if you cannot find this you can chop up brussels sprouts in the food processor. This dish can be made in less than 20 minutes and is strict paleo as well. I am serving…

Review: Mini Sweet Potato Flatbreads

This recipe is super simple to make. I used organic canned sweet potato puree to make it even easier and quicker. I mixed everything in the food processor so that it would be mixed really well and to make it easier. My sweet potato puree was a bit watery so I had to add in a few extra teaspoons of coconut flour. From start to finish it took me about 50 minutes for these. These were very good. I made…

Review: Salmon with Creamy Tzatziki Sauce & Dill Carrots

  This recipe took me about an hour and a half from start to finish, including chopping veggies. If you chop your veggies ahead of time, it will cut down on the time. This recipe is easy to follow and make. It’s a simple but delicious dinner. The tzatziki sauce tastes shockingly like the real thing. This meal is definitely strict paleo and sugar-free. I think it would go over well with non-paleo guests, especially if you added some type…
