Savory Pot Pie with Herbed Cassava Flour Crust (Gluten Free)

Holy Batman is it COLD here in Chicago! I took Remy out this morning and all I wanted to do was cry, curl up in bed and/or set myself on fire because I was absolutely chilled to the bone. When all you want to do is warm up, it's wise to make some good ol' comfort food.

Grain Free Paleo "Fried Rice" (Whole30, Soy Free)

Recently, our friends, Matt and Audry, visited Thailand and brought us home a cookbook, Rawfully Good: Living Flavours of Southeast Asia. A recipe I saw in this book gave me the inspiration I needed for this cauliflower Fried Rice!  I'm starting to think of cauliflower as the miracle vegetable.

Dairy Free Veggie Chowder (Whole30)

I, like the majority of the US, overindulged on Thanksgiving. I'm pretty confident that I ate enough food (all paleo!) for a small army to survive through winter. Before doing this all over again at Christmas, I'm using these next few weeks to get back on track

Pork Burger with Deviled Egg Salad (Whole30, Dairy Free)

Saturday, we hit up this restaurant called Hammerheads, which has some amazing food, including fries. The main con of my love affair with fries is the fact that essentially every restaurant uses unhealthy oils. This time, I could get them completely guilt free because they had an option to fry them in duck fat! I think I am going to dream about those fries forever. While I drool over the thought of them, I'm going to imagine that I am pairing them with my new burger concoction!

Paleo Sweet Potato Cottage Pie (Whole30)

Whole30 doesn't allow sweets which means I'm cranky and irritable.  Just kidding! Fortunately, I (knock on wood) haven't had any massive cravings! What it does mean is that I can't have any dessert, including delicious pie. Since I can't have pie for dessert on the Whole30, I'm eating pie for dinner!

Baked Spaghetti Squash

As mentioned on Facebook, I am planning an intermittent series featuring paleo "basics." These are going to be everyday, basic recipes that I find to be more or less essential in this lifestyle. These will feature sauces, spice mixes, crusts, etc. While I have some set recipes in mind, if you have any specific requests or are looking for a good standard, leave your suggestion in the comments!

Dairy Free Cajun Casserole (Whole30)

The weekend before last, Kyle took a train to Michigan to bond with his dad and uncles over manly things (it was the opening of deer season). While being alone usually sucks, I seized this opportunity and spent those 24 hours working on new recipes. This next recipe is one of them and I'm ecstatic to share it with you!
