BraisedBelly-10

Maple Mustard and Cider Braised Pork Belly

It’s officially the week of Paleo f(x) and Suzanne and I couldn’t be more excited and nervous at the same time. We’re doing a cooking demo for a modified version of our Paleo Eggs Benedict with a totally FOOLPROOF hollandaise sauce. I’m also on a panel for the Journey of Transformation where I’ll be talking about […]

Review: Slim Palate Cookbook | Avocado Lime Scallop Ceviche

Suzanne and I first met Josh Weissman about a year ago, at Paleo f(x) in Austin. We both were awed by his professionalism and urge to learn all that he could about paleo, photography, food styling – soaking up anything and everything like a sponge. At first glance, the recipes and photos on his website, […]

ChiaPudding-8

Banana Cinnamon Chia Pudding

This is actually something that I’ve wanted to make for a long time.  Almost two years in fact.  When I first heard the concept of chia pudding, I was talking to a member of my gym regarding her epilepsy.  We were chatting about the steps I was taking to treat or at the very least, […]

ShreddedBeef-4

Turmeric and Herb Pulled Beef

It’s been cold the last few weeks in LA and even going into last month some as well.  That means that my crock pot has been on the receiving end of almost a non stop workout for that time.  Whether I’m making some bone broth, rendering more lard for cooking or just using it to […]

PeachBBQChicken-8

Peach BBQ Chicken Legs

Spring is around the corner, and with that comes warmer weather, which usually means backyard BBQ’s with family and friends.  One of the big BBQ dishes in my household (other than ribs and brisket of course) is definitely the BBQ chicken.  Growing up, we would have chicken breasts, thrown on the grill and covered with […]

ChorizoStirFry-4

Chorizo Stir Fry

When I finally figured out the secret to making delicious homemade chorizo, I definitely have gone a little crazy in using it for everything.  From subbing out bacon in the morning (shocking, I know) to making a cleaner version of a queso dip I grew up with, this new chorizo has been close to an […]

CocolateCoveredStrawberry-17

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

It’s time for Valentine’s Day and what is a more classic and simple recipe to make for that special someone than chocolate covered strawberries?  I’m actually surprised that I haven’t posted something like this sooner.  It’s such a simple way to make a great dessert that is sure to impress. What’s a little different about […]

Review: The Ancestral Table | New England Clam Chowder

When we first met Russ Crandall at Paleo f(x) in Austin, TX last Spring, we had heard of him & his blog – The Domestic Man – for sure…and his opinion on onions ;).  If you haven’t read Russ’s story, it’s one that will inspire you – check it out on his blog here. After […]

BeefHeart-2

Beef Heart Confit with Sous Vide Beets

This is actually something that I’ve had in the works for quite some time.  I had this idea way back in October of last year but never was able to find the time to get it going.  It was also difficult for me to get my hands on a quality grass fed beef heart as […]

Top Ten Recipes for the Super Bowl

So we are officially one week away from one of the biggest events that involves snacks and food galore.  Whether you’re hosting or attending one of these parties, it’s always good to provide at least one dish that will satisfy all guests that attend.  I’m talking of course about Super Bowl Sunday.  I should also […]

ChickenWIngLarge

Smoked Chicken Wings with Homemade Ranch

It seems like for the past few months almost that I’ve been on a big time chicken wing kick.  And I mean, BIG TIME.  I think I have averaged chicken wings about 2-3 times per week.   I think one of the best things about chicken wings has to be the fact that the cooking […]

Chorizo Con Queso-2

Spicy Queso with Homemade Chorizo

This is another one of those classic snacks that I would enjoy while growing up and even into college and beyond.  I’m talking of course of that classic Tex Mex dish: Queso Dip.  Of course the way I always made it usually involved a brick of fake cheese, cheap salsa and a crock pot.   Over […]

DuckFatRosemaryPumpkinSeeds-5

Duck Fat and Rosemary Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

It’s the New Year now and for the most part, I think people are waving good bye to pumpkin recipes.  However, pumpkins are still plentiful and it’s always bothered me that I would throw away the seeds in year’s past.  Growing up as a baseball player, I always had either pumpkin or sunflower seeds to […]

BaconWrappedDatesWide-2

Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Dates

It seems like when people make the switch to a paleo lifestyle, they naturally gravitate towards this classic dish for a snack, especially when it comes to parties and get togethers.  I can’t tell you how many of these I’ve eaten in my lifetime because it’s quite honestly, way too many to even think about. […]

CrabDip-2

Crab Dip with Homemade Cocktail Sauce

This is an appetizer that my family serves at virtually every get together we have.  Most notably Thanksgiving and Christmas.  The version we usually make is a simple parfait of sorts of all the ingredients layered on top of each other.  Traditionally, we just place the cream cheese log on a plate then add crab […]

HeadCheeseWide

Spiced Cider Brined Head Cheese

This has been something that I’ve wanted to make for over 2 years now.  I first heard of headcheese from a friend of mine at the gym.  I was running a 12 week paleo challenge there, and he asked me what my take on headcheese was.  At the time I was dead against any and […]

BoneBrothWide

Crock Pot Bone Broth

First off, I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year!  I truly hope your holiday break was as amazing as mine was.  My girlfriend and I each traveled home to Colorado to visit our families for Christmas.  Her entire family was in town from Alabama for the eventual birth of her new nephew.  Which […]

Holiday Lattes with Paleo Shortbread

We’re officially in Mid December A.K.A. the thick of the Holiday Season.  Now is the time where everyone starts making (and devouring) all those tempting and delicious holiday treats.  My family alone makes over 8 different kinds of cookies and treats for Christmastime.  From turtles (chocolate, caramel and pecans) to hazelnut chocolate covered chow mein […]

Review: Nom Nom Paleo: Food For Humans | Asian Cauliflower Fried “Rice”

If you’re a paleo person, just starting out or a veteran offal eater – you’ve got to be familiar with the seriously popular site by Michelle Tam:  Nom Nom Paleo.  Michelle’s site is dedicated to paleo recipes, yes, but it’s oh-so-much more. That’s why when she broke the news that she and her husband Henry […]

CarneAsadaDisplay-2

Crock Pot Carne Asada

So I know lately, given the season, I’ve been focusing on lots of desserts and holiday fare.  So with this recipe, I wanted to get away from that briefly, hey Thanksgiving might be over but Christmas is coming, and I have a few recipes coming down the pipe for that! Carne Asada has to be […]
