Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas with Pepper and Lime Sauce

When I was traveling in Central America, a Mayan women taught me to marinate meat for days in a basic pepper and lime sauce. The spicy marinade gives the pork a nice peppery flavor.  Slow cooking the pork in another pepper sauce gives it the perfect shreddable juicy texture.  Just add a slice of radish and a few cilantro sprigs and you have yourself the perfect taco.

Pan Roasted Rosemary Chicken and Mushrooms

We just got our very first cast iron pan (a cast iron grill pan, no less!) so I decided to try it out with a pan roasting recipe. If you don’t have cast iron, any heavy pan will do — just make sure that it’s safe to go into your oven. This recipe is another potential one-pan recipe that utilizes your oven, so it’s great for the colder months when you’re feeling a little lazy and cold, but want some great food.

Paleo Roasted Bacon Sliced Brussels Sprouts

Growing up I always thought Brussels sprouts were the worst! Brussels sprouts were really the only vegetable that I didn’t eat. I even ate my beets, turnips and spinach! But as I’ve grown up (I’m not sure I really have yet!) and my tastes have evolved, I’ve learned to appreciate these mini cabbages. If you are like me and have never been a big fan of Brussels, I have a few key things that will make them not only palatable but even delicious!

Amazingly Delicious Paleo Pumpkin Spice Latte (Gluten Free, Paleo, Vegan)

‘Tis the Season for the infamous PSL. Anymore, the pumpkin spice latte marks the start of fall as much, if not more, than the changing of the leaves. Being lactose-intolerant, I am familiar with going without flavor or cream in my coffee.  Now, with the flood of dairy-free options in coffee houses and stores, I can finally be part of the movement and enjoy a delicious PSL. WRONG. So, just like with my own spiked version of Paleo-Eggnog (soon to come), I made my Paleo Pumpkin Spice Latte!

Snack Table Worthy Paleo Beef Chili

Are you ready for some football! I sure am. I love everything about it. Of course you wouldn’t know that because I’m always cooking in the kitchen during the game. My favorite part, truly, is that everyone gets together, piles on the couch and yells at the TV. Well, at least in my house.
