Lamburgers w/ Greek Sauce

Recipe: Lamburgers w/ Greek Sauce (Bonus Pancake Info!)

Yesterday was Father’s Day, and we celebrated with a couple of fantastic Primal meals. Breakfast was strawberry-blueberry almond flour pancakes and bacon. I highly recommend this recipe from Elana’s Pantry, just sprinkle fruit on top of the batter in the pan before flipping. I’ve used blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, huckleberries, and slices of banana, all to […]

Grilled Sausage, Zucchini, Mushrooms, and Onions w/ Feta

Recipe: Grilled Sausage, Zucchini, Mushrooms, and Onions w/ Feta

This is kinda like a grilled melange salad. Everything goes over flames together and the bonding experience leads to a tasty meal. I used a local ranch’s (Willow-Witt) goat sausage with pistachios for this. Incredible. But the simple flavors here will go with many sausage options, particularly anything with a Mediterranean flair. Think olives, basil, […]

Wasabi-Soy Grilled Tuna on Arugula

Recipe: Sesame-Wasabi Grilled Tuna on Arugula

Tuna is a fantastic choice for the grill. It’s a meaty, oily fish that stays together well, as long as you don’t overcook it. It’s versatile. And it’s satisfying in a way that some lighter fish just can’t be without a lot of gussying up. I was ready for a change of pace, especially since […]

Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp Skewers

Recipe: Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp Skewers

My husband knows this and is okay with me telling you: if I could have married shrimp, I would’ve. Me and shrimp go way back, it’s been one of my favorite foods since I can remember. But the breaded shrimp of my youth has been replaced with more sophisticated adult renditions. But sophisticated doesn’t have […]

Turnip, Radish, Avocado Salad

Recipe: Turnip, Radish, Avocado Salad

Here’s a simple and delicious salad that highlights some rather humble vegetables. I’ll even give you three—that’s right, THREE!—salad dressing options so you can adapt it to the feng shui of your main course. The crunch of these root veggies is a wonderful contrast to meat dishes, especially with the heat of summer upon us. […]

Sesame Beef Salad

Recipe: Sesame Beef Salad

Well, kids, at this point it looks like most recipes going forward will be either a salad or a hunk of meat on the grill. It’s just that time of year. So here’s another lettuce-based dish for you. I don’t do much with ground beef beyond the expected: burgers, chili, lettuce-leaf tacos. Lately I’ve been […]

Cabbage Hash with Chicken and Bacon

Recipe: Cabbage Hash with Chicken and Bacon

Yes, indeed, necessity is the mother of invention. I’m usually prepared with dinner options, but sometimes, I open the fridge and think “Doh!” Maybe I forgot to thaw the ground bison or I’m fresh out of coconut milk for the curry. But without those lapses in preparedness, I’d never come up with wack-a-doodle random recipes […]

Steak Salad w/ Lime-Cumin Yogurt Dressing

Recipe: Steak Salad w/ Lime-Cumin Yogurt Dressing

Whenever steak’s on the menu, I’ve started cooking more than I know we can eat. Steak leftovers will never go to waste in this house: steak n’ eggs, steak and avocado, steak stir-fry. It’s easily repurposed into something drool-worthy. Like this BAS. Dressing sound familiar? It is (here), but slightly retooled for the steak. I […]

Entertaining? Some Primal-Friendly Ideas

I’ve had several nights of entertaining in a row, and while I’m freshly tapped out of original recipes, I thought I’d share what fed the throngs of visitors we’ve had recently. All of these menus were relatively simple and I doubt anyone would even miss the grains or sugars. Also have to apologize for the […]

Lamb chops on the grill

Recipe: Grilled Garlic-Rosemary Lamb Chops

I’ve got a fever. And the only prescription is more grilling! We live in lamb country here in Oregon. Something about rolling green hills requires sheep (see also: Ireland, Great Britain, New Zealand). It’s also springtime, which means it’s lamb season. And I’m grateful because it’s such a nice change-up from whatever the culinary status […]
