I don't know about you, but dried fruit is one of my favorite treats. It's so rich and fibrous that it satisfies really quickly compared to sweets with less substance. Like vanilla ice cream, which I could easily eat a pint of in one sitting. Uh, let's not talk about those days. Anyway, I found inspiration for this Apricot Pudding recipe while looking for things to do with an abundance of dried apricots I managed to collect over the winter. They're one of those things I tend to buy when they're on sale, forget I have, and then wind up with a … [Read more...] about Apricot Pudding (Qubani ka Meetha)

Simone Miller is one of my favorite chefs in the Paleosphere. She's already got some amazing cookbooks on the market and she's a 100% delightful personality in print or in person.

I was never a very big fan of tomatoes, but I love roasted tomatoes so much I make them by the bucketful. They're so simple to prepare and absolutely worth the wait while they slowly char in the oven. Paired with fresh basil... mmf, tastebud heaven. This Roasted Tomato Hummus uses a base of cauliflower instead of chickpeas for a dish that's Paleo-friendly.

Three to three-and-a-half cups (about two cans) should work out just fine; skip the part where … [Read more...] about Roasted Tomato Hummus (Legume-Free)
I love pickles. I mean, who doesn't? They've just got such a wonderfully salty, refreshing flavor. My husband is prone to snacking on them in lieu of chips any time he gets a craving, which I can't say I disapprove of: Pickled cucumbers make a healthier snack than fried potatoes. Especially when you make them yourself. These Garlic Dill Pickles have all the flavor of store-bought pickles, plus some optional heat from crushed red pepper, without any of the additives. I mean, seriously, blue and yellow dyes? Do we really need our pickles to be a … [Read more...] about Homemade Garlic Dill Pickles

But salsa is used for more than just chips: You'll see recipes featuring it on fish or chicken if you browse around any big food site long enough. So now, this Chili Pork with Peach Salsa is my favorite way to get some of that oh-so-delicious condiment into my life. The list of … [Read more...] about Chili Pork with Peach Salsa
