After school (controlled) chaos isn’t quite at its peak (with the start of a new year, there’s no homework yet), but there’s still that sense of relief that comes when we finally sit down to dinner together. Last week I asked Luv for dinner suggestions and she quickly suggested meatballs.
If ever there were a quick, fancy pants salad! Each time I’ve made this, I’ve had it for breakfast (and the kids split the other half). It’s light, flavorful, and satisfying all at once. Do you, boo. The smoked salmon I use is homesmoked. Don’t hate me. BUT you could also substitute a salmon that […]
I’m continually looking for ways to incorporate organ meat into our meals. The kids already love pâté, heart, and tongue so “hidden liver” is more for the sake of supplementing, not necessarily sneaking it in (unlike zucchini, ha!). These turkey meatballs were a hit from the start. Both kids loved them (even as cold leftovers) […]
I’ve always been open about how I “went about reintroductions the wrong way”. Sure, I was diligent with the elimination stage for six months, but I got sloppy with reintroductions. Embarrassingly so. See, when I started there wasn’t a reintroduction guide to walk you through the process. Now, there’s plenty of information for when one […]
Would you believe me if I said there was a time I didn’t like grilling? Yep. I “let” The Mister handle all the grilling. I prepped the food and he grilled it. Now? Pfft. Move over. I got this. 😉 I’ve made this dish for the family with both beef heart and chicken hearts, each […]
AIP camp food? Can it be done? YOU BET. Whenever I see an AIP group member asking about suggestions for camp food, hiking fare, or jerky recipes – my immediate suggestion is they check out Backcountry Paleo. Sue has nailed that niche and offers tons of information and recipes on her site. I’ve been squirreling […]
I’ve been tinkering with this recipe for (what seems like) ever. What started out as a simple change in salt turned into testing different tannins, salts, and how to prep the cukes (if at all). A couple weekends ago I opened a fresh batch that received the approval of everyone. Well, technically two batches were […]
When it comes to heart, I have all the heart eyes. When it comes to meatballs, I have all the heart eyes. Combine the two and I’m reduced to a pristine puddle of smit.
For the majority of my life, I’ve struggled with being comfortable in my skin. Itching, flaky, inflamed, sometimes painful lesions aside – I think it was more the awareness of how unhealthy my skin looked that made me hyper-aware of what other people thought of my skin. Let me reword that simply. I was more […]
