Sous Vide Goat Loin Chops

I just took a look at my bridal registry and realized that it's ALL kitchen stuff! Every. Single. Thing...kitchen-related. It's a good thing that Wil likes my cooking. I visited my registry because I needed to add a couple of things to it after seeing this dinner post from Nom Nom Paleo.

Chard Amaranth and Lambsquarter Greens

I only just started playing around with greens in my kitchen and all I have to say about it is...I'm sad that it took me so long. Don't be afraid of these plants, people! You shouldn't be, especially if you use this recipe from The Domestic Man.

Avocado Tuna Salad

A-ha, I finally found something I can make to eat without having access to my kitchen! I'm running down to the supermarket now to buy a lemon and Hass avocado for My Postpartum Voice's yummy lunch creation.

Green Spinach Pancakes

I was really sad when I woke up this morning because I usually make breakfast at home when I don't have to work on a Saturday. Our contractors say that we should be up and running in the kitchen by the end of this week, but that assurance doesn't quell the rumble in my belly. Had I been able to cook today, I would've tried out these bad boys from Health Food Lover

Paleo Brownies

I'm not too into sweets, but I know a lot of you are. With that in mind, I trolled the Internet for a good dessert recipe. I ended up finding this glob of gooey goodness on Paleo Mama's blog. It looks so good, that I may have to try baking it myself...after the kitchen is done.

"No Potato" Salad

I cannot stop talking about food and I'm sure it's only because the kitchen is kaput. Anyway, I met with my first nutrition counseling client today and we got to talking about this recipe from Everyday Paleo. I thought that I had already posted it, but my client assured me that I hadn't. I'm glad someone is reading this blog! Someone needs to invite me to a BBQ so I can make this.

Gluten-Free Rainbow Meat Loaf

Sorry about for posting another dinner recipe...it must be because I'm about to go to bed without it. Yeah, it's true and I'm not proud. This kitchen renovation is really putting a cramp on my cooking style. Not being able to cook hasn't kept me from searching the Internet for yummy things to eat when my stove is up and running. Check out this meat loaf recipe from Caitlin Weeks.

Braised Beef Short Ribs

I'm really missing my kitchen right about now and it's not helping that I've been looking through recipes to try out once our renovations are completed. One thing I MUST cook when my kitchen is back in commission is my Braised Beef Short Ribs. I posted this delicious recipe on Danfredo Rivera a couple months back. Warning: It's labor-intensive, but TOTALLY worth the work.

Curried Ground Pork And Broccoli Slaw Frittata

Our kitchen renovation starts Monday, which means I'm not going to be able to cook for 23452354 days. I spent the better part of the evening clearing out the cabinets...and then looking for a suitable "Last Supper" to cook for tomorrow morning's breakfast. I ended up digging up this gem from Nom Nom Paleo. God help us for the next two weeks.

15 Delicious Lettuce-Wrap Ideas

I used to LOVE sandwiches, but have given them up for Paleo. I've been looking for some fancy/yummy alternatives to sandwiches for my lunches and happened to come across these lovely lettuce wraps. I heart anything with avocado and these "recipes" from Balanced Bites are choc-full of 'em. Enjoy, folks!

Grass Fed Jerky Chews

Wil just dropped a BOMBSHELL and told me that he wants to ditch his daily bag of chips for a "healthy snack" (his words). Woah. I started looking for a quality beef jerky to throw into his lunch bag, but came up empty-handed as pickens are slim here in the Bronx. I turned to Twitter and was referred to Grass Fed Jerky Chews. The price is right and the shipping is FREE! Buy up.

The Kitchen Sink Salad

Since I work in a kitchen, salads are the easiest things for me to get my hands on for lunch. A lot of times, I check out the Internet for different salad ideas. I don't know about you, but I find it very east to get caught in a lettuce-tomato-cucumber-green pepper-random meat rut. Everyday Paleo is always good for a recipe or 2039485723; case in point: The Kitchen Sink Salad.

Cucumber Infused Vodka

Let's face it: you're gonna drink. Hell, I drink...too much on occasion, if you want to know the God's honest truth. Since most of us who are of legal drinking age are going to do so, I thought it'd be a good idea to occasionally post healthier alternatives to the gross, sugar-loaded mixed drinks that most of us have grown to love. Our first drink recipe comes from Shutterbean. I'm buying mason jars tomorrow.

Pork Breakfast Sausage

It's a holiday and I'm actually off from work! This means that Wil is expecting me to cook breakfast. I don't mind, of course, but I always struggle with figuring out different awesome morning meals; good thing I'm not afraid of going to the Internet for a little inspiration. Today's delightful dish comes from Jen's Gone Paleo. If you're not a fan of pork, just use another meat.

Tuna Melt

Wil and I desperately need to go food shopping, but we don't want to go crazy buying stuff since our kitchen is going to be out of commission for a couple of weeks while we renovate it. We ended up raiding our cabinets last night for dinner are were shocked to discover that we had all the ingredients for this quick supper from Eating Well. I skipped the bread and the cheese and also used some homemade mayonnaise. It's a yummy, FAST summer dinner recipe. Oh, and this goes great with a sauvignon blanc.

Apple Crumble

I was looking for a dessert to bring to a Fourth of July BBQ that wasn't too terribly unhealthy and then I came across this gem on My Aim is True. I want to eat my computer monitor, it looks that good! I have a feeling it's going to taste good, too...the cooked recipe, that is.

Mini Corn On The Cob

We're approaching the Fourth of July, so expect to see a few barbecue related food posts over the next few days. It's not a BBQ without corn on the cob, but I wanted to find a "grown up" dressing for this staple. Epicurious came to the rescue again! God, I love that website.
