Primal Jalapeño Poppers with Bacon & Sweet Potato

Many bacon jalapeno recipes wrap the bacon around the jalapeno.  In this version,...

Easy Peasy Paleo Spice Blend for Grilled Chicken (and more!)

I try and plan my meals for the week and I usually have time to cook, but some nights are just crazy or somehow it’s 5 o’clock and I haven’t a clue what to make. For those nights, it’s chicken breasts to the rescue. Aside from time to defrost, it can be grilled in...

The nice thing about apple crisps is that they are not fussy (unlike...

Hearty Spaghetti Sauce over Baked Spaghetti Squash

This is one of our favorite fall meals — both the paleo parents and neolithic kids enjoy this dinner.  For the kids I usually make them start with one serving w/the squash noodles, then they can have seconds with regular pasta noodles. As the chief meal-maker, I like this dish because it’s easy to...

We like to make shish kabobs at our house, but my kids will frequently complain about one or more of the items included on the skewer. When I saw an idea online for a Build Your Own Shish Kabob Party, I thought it would be a fun way to celebrate the end of summer. ...
