Fall Harvest Salad (Paleo, Vegan)

The very last of this year’s garden was harvested this week.  I’ll have to wait another 7 months before the first of next year’s harvests. It is a sad day at my house when I have to pull up the last of the greens and root veggies.  I set to lighten the mood this year by making  a delicious tribute to the last harvest! A fall salad with bitter mesculin greens and spicy red onions that are no match for the sweet shaved fennel.

Slow Cooker Chicken Marsala

Cold weather is here, and a lot of the time that means that you just want hearty comfort food with as little work as possible — enter the slow cooker!

Tom Yum Soup with Shrimp (Thai Hot and Sour Soup)

Tom Yum Goong Soup (Thai Hot and Sour Shrimp Soup)… My first taste of hot and sour soup was at a Thai restaurant when I lived in Hawaii. It was late October and I was homesick. I was particularly missing the cold, stormy fall weather that I was used to ushering in soup season (my favorite season!). What I remember most about my first encounter with this delightful soup, was that I hated my first spoonful! I had not had a lot of experience with Thai or Asian cuisine and when I took that first slurp, I was in for

Paleo Roasted Root Vegetables

Root vegetables are to fall as asparagus is to spring. And yes, you know a true foodie when their season’s are marked by the changes in produce not the changes in weather. And I know, Brussels Sprouts aren’t root vegetables, but the name of this recipe was so catchy I couldn’t help myself! Forgive me. This Paleo Roasted Root Vegetables recipe is not your typical roasted root vegetable recipe. Yes, there are herbs and rustic knife cuts. But, this method of seasoning makes it so every vegetable is slightly different and totally jazzes up what is typically a one note dish.
