Beef Brisket

Posted on February 16, 2014

Beef Brisket served with Mashed Cauliflower is easy to make and a favorite Paleo dinner in our family.

Growing up I loved the brisket that my Bubby made. It was melt in your mouth amazing. My mother also made an incredible brisket. Now it’s my turn to take a whirl at Beef Brisket –the perfect Paleo dinner entree.

Since I started eating red meat religiously a couple of years ago (rather than every now and then) I have watched my iron levels ... read more →

Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Posted on January 19, 2012

Creamy dairy free soup made with superfood cauliflower to warm you up on a cold night.

Soup is good food. Especially healthy soup made with a mere five ingredients.

This quick and easy Roasted Cauliflower soup recipe is one that I found in a recent issue of Bon Appetit. Except their recipe had butter and heavy cream; I’ve de-Paula Deened this recipe so that it is the pure delicious essence of a vegetable without all kinds of unnecessary other ingredients ... read more →

Butternut Squash Apple Soup

This simple and healthy butternut squash soup recipe will warm your belly on those cold winter days.

Tis the season for all things squash and pumpkin. On the menu tonight? Butternut squash apple soup spiced with sweet, warming cinnamon. If you’re looking for an easy soup recipe this one is great for beginners.

My younger son loves this soup and I do too –sometimes I even eat it with a little protein (such as eggs or turkey) for breakfast.

Paleo Dirty Rice

Posted on September 20, 2011

Using anitoxidant rich low-carb cauliflower, this dirty rice recipe makes one heck of a savory Paleo side dish.

For those avoiding starchy high carb foods such as white rice, cauliflower rice is a wonderful alternative that is highly nutritious.

When I posted my recipe for Cauliflower Rice a year ago, I received numerous requests for various flavored varieties of that dish. So when I opened one of my new favorite books, Paleo Comfort Foods and saw that they had a recipe for ... read more →

Paleo Mushroom Soup

Posted on February 27, 2011

Tonight is the Oscars and we’re having a nice little party over here (as usual).  I’ll be serving this super quick and easy gluten free Mushroom Soup in little shot glasses.  As you can probably tell by now, pretty much any event is an excuse for me to have people over and cook healthy gluten free food.

I frankly could not really care who wins what awards tonight.  I just like to hang with my posse and have good eats.  In ... read more →

Herb Gravy

Posted on November 11, 2010

Last weekend my in-laws came out to Boulder to visit and I used them as guinea pigs for this new gluten free Herb Gravy.  Thankfully this gravy passed the in-law test served over Mashed Cauliflower.  My husband and children liked it too!

When I made this gravy, I roasted a chicken with onions and thyme and used the pan drippings for the recipe below.  I probably only had a couple of tablespoons of drippings, and I actually think this gravy recipe ... read more →

Green Chicken Soup

Posted on April 6, 2010

I can tell this Green Chicken Soup is going to become one of my go to dishes in no time at all.

I love this soup because it is an easy way to take in powerfully nutritious greens. While I love my green juices in theory, in reality, my stomach doesn’t always agree with them, especially when it’s cold outside. That’s when it’s time to make Green Chicken Soup. Somehow, the carrots and kale give the soup a delicious sweet flavor, which makes this ... read more →

Fennel Apple Soup

Posted on December 9, 2009

It seems that Fennel Apple Soup is on everyone’s radar these days.  And what better time than now?!  It’s perfect soup weather here in Boulder –a toasty -2 outside, which begs for soup.

Gluten free Fennel Apple Soup has been popping up everywhere –on various gluten free yahoo groups and in various magazines.  Here’s my version.

Fennel Apple Soup

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion
2 (medium to large) fennel bulbs stems removed and diced

Coconut Chicken Soup

Posted on November 9, 2009

This recipe was inspired by Jaden’s Lemongrass Chicken and Coconut Soup from her fabulous book, The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook.  I received it in the mail on Friday and played with it all weekend long.  It is a captivating book, full of gorgeous pictures (which she styled and shot herself) and easy recipes.  I’m in love.  Last night, I made this Coconut Chicken Soup, Jaden’s Grilled Fish with Kabayaki Sauce (also from The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook) and some stir fried broccoli.

Pumpkin Ginger Soup

Posted on November 4, 2009

Soup mania continues.  And this dairy free creamy pumpkin coconut ginger soup hits the spot.  I decided I had to make something pumpkin today after making pumpkin pies from my gluten free cookbook (The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook) and finding myself with a bunch of leftover roasted pumpkin.  Of course soup was the easiest thing to make after making one too many pumpkin pies for family and friends.

We’re having nice weather here, in the 60’s and sunny, however ... read more →

Chicken Noodle Soup

Posted on November 2, 2009

This Paleo Chicken Noodle Soup is super easy if you have chicken stock on hand.

It’s a gray day here in Boulder and I decided some soup would be in order.  Chicken Noodle Soup to be exact.  So what’s a gluten free grain free girl to do for noodles?  Zucchini.  Yes, DIY zucchini noodles.

This recipe is super easy if you have chicken stock on hand.  I keep several jars in the freezer and try to have one in the fridge ... read more →

Green Soup with Ginger

Posted on October 26, 2009

When the cold weather comes I’m in the mood for soup.  This gluten free Green Soup with Ginger that I found on Heidi’s website 101cookbooks.com is quite comforting on a chilly day.  And I must confess, I often eat it for breakfast to start my day out right.

I’ve probably mangled the work of art that Heidi had on her site, however, I was in the mood for something very soothing so I decided to puree this soup.  I also used ... read more →

How to Make Chicken Stock

Posted on September 15, 2009

It’s wonderful to be back at home with my family and kitchen.  I’ve made myriad soup stocks these last few days in order to help my husband and myself recuperate from the sniffles we each seem to have picked up last week.  We’re recovering quite quickly.

To create a bit of variety, I decided to make a roasted chicken stock last night and of course consulted one of my favorite books, Joy of Cooking.  The recipe below is based upon the ... read more →

Turkey Chili

Posted on December 1, 2008

Leftover turkey?  I opened the fridge this morning and noticed I still had a pile of cooked bird from Thanksgiving.  While I am more than happy to have a surplus of food during these times, I must admit, I was perplexed as to what to do with it.

Turkey chili of course.  Here’s a recipe that I threw together, literally, in the crockpot.  Feel free to adapt this chili to your liking and make it up as you go along, like ... read more →

Thai Chicken Soup

Posted on April 25, 2008

I have to give full credit for this photo of Thai Chicken Soup to my boys. They helped me stage the shot and then sat with me at the computer to crop and size the photo. They are becoming such little artists, having far surpassed me in this arena.

The delicious Thai soup above is based on a recipe from Cook’s Illustrated. My friend Deb got me hooked on this magazine last year when she gave me a ... read more →

Squash Aduki Chestnut Soup

Posted on April 10, 2008

Over the last month I have received several emails from people despondent over their dietary options, or lack thereof. The touching aspect? Each person thanks me profusely for this website, for providing them with options and offering new ways to enjoy the foods they can eat.

The heartbreaking aspect of these same emails? People express their feelings of loneliness and isolation. They ask if I can recommend a community where people share their dietary concerns. If ... read more →

That troubling question, “what’s for dinner?” troubles no more! Of late I’m feeling quite confident about answering this question, having built up a decent repertoire of main dishes for the family.

Here’s a list of entrées that are getting us through the dinner hour with ease:

Chicken Parm
Chicken Piccata
Rosemary Apple Chicken
Peach Chicken
Cod Piccata
Fish Sticks
Salmon with Olive Anchovy Tapenade
Salmon with Tomato Basil Relish
Pasta with Parsley Pesto and Sundried Tomatoes
Sesame Noodles

I can see that the seafood department needs a bit of work, we ... read more →

Yellow Split Pea Soup with Smoked Paprika

Posted on March 8, 2008

When my husband takes the boys up to the mountains for a night or two, first I call Martha for a hike. Then, I go into soup mode.

For me, soup is all about simplicity –vegetables and protein in a one pot meal. I make soup for dinner and often end up eating it for breakfast and lunch the next day. My husband cringes when I tell him this; he has a strong dislike of leftovers, and has not yet discovered ... read more →

Chicken Piccata

Posted on February 22, 2008

It’s been almost a week since I last posted something here. It seems my entire family has gone into retrograde and I have been nursing everyone back to health for the last month –including myself. The nasty flu that blew through Colorado had me down for ten days straight. I haven’t had one that bad for quite a long time.

On a food note, I continue to be inspired by Elise over at simplyrecipes.com. Last week she posted a delicious ... read more →

Gravy
