The Autoimmune Wellness Bundle

I am so excited to share this amazing deal with you! I really try to limit how many products I sell, and only get involved with these things when I truly stand behind them and think they’re truly valuable. This is one of those situations- I even contributed some of my favorite recipes to the Best Of ebook that’s included in this sale! If you follow my blog or have my cookbook, you know that I’m notoriously bad at writing recipes that are compliant with the Autoimmune Protocol.  Not because I don’t think it’s an excellent tool for people to heal themselves with...

Mother’s Day Brunch – Paleo Recipe Round-Up

The dilemma: You love brunch and want to treat the mom in your life to a wonderful meal on Mother’s Day, but don’t love standing in line and/or paying jacked up prices for mediocre food. The solution: Make brunch at home. You know it will taste better anyway. And if you’ve got a crowd coming over, send them this round-up and ask everyone to bring something. Just don’t ask any mom-types to cook! The recipes that follow are from some of my very talented blogger friends. I hope it leads you to some great new sites to follow. Happy Mother’s Day!   Beverages...

The NEW Yiddish Kitchen – a BIG announcement!

Last fall, my friend Jennifer of Predominantly Paleo and I started kvetching about the lack of Jewish Paleo recipes that were available. Sure there were a few here and there, but what’s a nosh when you can have a feast? We started talking about challah, about bagels, even about matzo. We longed for our Bubbe’s brisket, stuffed cabbage, and matzo ball soup. And of course we dreamt of rugelach and honey cake and madelbrot.  (What’s a feast without dessert, after all?) It didn’t take long for us to realize that if anyone was going to put together a book like this, it was...

90 minute Kalua Pork

90 minute Kalua Pork

Tender, fatty, fall apart pork shoulder is one of life’s true treasures. (Am I being dramatic?) The general rule with meat cuts is: the tougher the muscle, the more dynamic the flavor. A filet mignon is tender, sure, but is it interesting? No, not really. It’s the muscles that actually get used by the animal that have the most flavor. But the tenderness needs to be coaxed out. Traditionally, this is done with low, slow cooking. But what about those of us who are impatient? (me!) What if we don’t plan ahead and want dinner TODAY? (also me!) Well. There’s a solution for...

Pork “Larb” with Sesame Cucumber Salad

  The other day, I had a recipe fail that turned into a delicious dinner. I love when that happens. The attempted recipe was for potstickers, the wrappers for which I was trying to make with Ottos Naturals cassava flour. I’ve found that cassava flour works great as a 1:1 sub in so many recipes, so I had expectations of a one try recipe success. Sometimes I’m overly-confident / hopeful about these things. I bet with a few more trials, I’d get it right. But after three or four, I decided to call it a day and cook up the remaining potsticker filling for dinner that night....
