Iced Coffee

Note:  I wrote this post before I started eating “Paleo”.  Iced Coffee can definitely be done paleo or primal — just leave out the sweeteners and milk (or use grassfed milk instead).  I’ve made a few update below accordingly. Do you know the Pioneer Woman?   I am,  a big fan.  She...

Quinoa-Avocado Salad

Ever since I saw this recipe in the Wegmans magazine, I’ve been hankering to make it.  I didn’t think it would be a big hit in my house, so I waited until I had a chance to bring it to a dinner with friends.   It was well received by most of the adults and...

Perfectly Cooked Broccoli

This post feels a little bit like explaining how to boil water (cuz honestly there’s not much more too it), but as someone who, for years had no idea how to achieve broccoli perfection, I could have used a post like this a long time ago. Broccoli is one of the few super foods...

Old Fashioned Deviled Eggs

I think of deviled eggs as an old fashioned picnic food.  The kind of food I’d expect to find at my grandma’s family reunion, where the median age ran  north of 60.   Despite it’s fuddy duddy status, it’s a perennial favorite. Whenever I set out to make deviled eggs, I pull out the trusty...

Egg Muffin Cups

NOTE:  These make a great Paleo recipe… if you either omit the cheese, or use cheese from grassfed cows. Have you discovered Pinterest yet?   It’s such a fun, visual way to find new cool stuff.  I decided to start using it to capture recipes that I find online and want to make.  One such...

Cornbread Corn Casserole

I got this recipe from a friend several years ago.  She brought it to a shindig and I promptly requested the recipe and added it to my summer potluck rotation.  I’m sure you could dress it up with things like roasted corn, but I like that it’s simple, cheap, and comprised of ingredients I...

Black Bean Falafel

This is a recipe I’ve been making for several years and could have sworn already had it up on my blog, but alas, I guess I never got around to it. I got it from a friend, who I think said she got it from Cooking Light, but I haven’t found it online anywhere,...
