I was describing this brunch casserole I have been making for many years. It is a staple in my household. Except for the cheese it is Paleo friendly. Paleo Warriors, Continue reading Omelette Casserole
I’m not one for waste. I believe in using as much of an item as I possibly can. So when I buy a whole chicken, I use it all. Continue reading Chicken Livers and Mushrooms
Last night I was about to cook up my beautiful bone-in pork chop from Niman Ranch. I buy my pork from the Meat Mart in Conyers, Georgia. They are an old fashioned meat market, and they do their best to sell happy meat. Then I said to myself, “Wait! you have a boat load of organic apples you just bought from BJ’s.” Continue reading Pork Chops with Apples and Onions
One of the things my mother made when I was growing up was a Sherried English Trifle. It was oh, so good, and decadent. Continue reading Paleo Sherried English Trifle
A couple of weeks ago I went to two important events. The first was a book signing by the Food Babe, Vani Hari, and the second was the GYRE conference at the CDC, which was part of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) conference. I kind of fit into the technology and math category, but science and engineering are beyond my mental skills. Continue reading Plastic Seriously?
About ten years ago I read a series of books that totally changed my life. It is sad to say that the author allowed his ego to take over, and he is serving time in jail for embellishing his claims. Ego and greed can be a powerful thing. I won’t mention his name in this post, because he has done a lot of good. The most powerful things he did for me were that I started reading the labels on all of my foods, which lead me to eating mostly organic foods, filtering my water, not only the water I drink, but also the water I take a shower with.

I know St. Patrick’s day was a couple of days ago, but once again I impressed my guests with a traditional St. Patrick’s Day dinner, Paleo style. Nobody missed the potatoes or the soda bread filled with massive amounts of gluten.
- Homemade brined brisket turned Corned Beef
- Cabbage (simply steam for 30 minutes, butter and salt and pepper—Don’t mess with it if you want the best cabbage ever)
- Root Vegetable Colcannon
- Irish Soda Bread (gluten free)
- Salad (provided by one of my guests)
- St. Patrick’s Day Cup Cakes
Here are some organic ingredients you can use in this recipe. For me a double boiler is a must have. It was the first cooking pot I purchased when I first started equipping my kitchen when I was in my early twenties.
This past weekend I made a birthday dinner for two very special friends of mine. Neither of them are on the Paleo lifestyle, but I am, and I cooked them a much raved over Paleo dinner. The dinner was a massive success with everyone very satisfied, and no one feeling bloated at the end of the meal.
- Rack of Lamb
- Sautéed Asparagus with Shallot and Lemon
- Cauliflower Cake (using a Paleo flour blend instead of the all purpose flour called for in the recipe
- Fluffy Bread
- Apple Pie Parfait
I am at a loss for words today, so I am sharing a recipe for pork chops that I made last night for dinner. This is simple and delicious.
Always cook with organic ingredients. Here are some that I used in this recipe, along with a deal on cast iron skillets.
