Recipe: Bacon-Green Chile Meatloaf

As I mentioned in my Lamb and Olive Chili recipe, ground meat will save your life. That goes for anytime, but especially during a Whole30. But sometimes…it sure gets old, doesn’t it? I run through the usual: burgers, taco salad, tomatoey meat sauce, meatballs, even a stir-fry treatment. But I always forget about meatloaf. It’s […]

Makin’ Bacon: Part 2

Let’s imagine that we have a time machine and 7-10 days have passed and not just two. You followed the directions for curing the pork belly and it’s been hanging out in your fridge with you flipping it every other day. Now it’s time to smoke it. But you don’t have a smoker. What to […]

Makin’ Bacon: Part 1

Hey guys! Good to see you again. It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? Since Karen had to go and take a little vacation, I thought I’d stop by and tell you all about my recent adventure of making my own bacon. Oh yes, you heard me right. I made my own bacon. And not in that […]

Recipe: Rabbit Stew with Bacon

A local farmer offers rabbits for sale at my local Farmers’ Market and co-op, and I figured it was high time I gave it a try. Hat tip to Thor Falk who suggested a coq au vin approach, but I was more in the mood for white wine than red this go-round. And I shan’t […]

Recipe: Bacon-Mizuna Frittata

Eggs are great. Eggs are awesome. One of nature’s best fast foods, no doubt. But my gawd, they get old after a while, don’t they? It was time to shake things up. Inspired somewhat by the flavors in pork fried rice, which features big bites of scrambled egg, this frittata was born. Savory bacon, bitter […]

Recipe: Shrimp w/ Bacon-Delicata Cream Sauce on Cabbage Noodles

This was a quintessential Paleo meal: satisfying, delicious, and hearty. Serious shout-out to PaleOMG for the sauce recipe idea. It’s ingenious, really. I never would’ve thought to use squash to make a rich, dense, and creamy sauce. I’ve been addicted to delicata squash lately, so I was thrilled to find another way to serve it […]

‘Tis the Season

Ah, the holidays. Though it may vary depending on where you live and what you believe, there are usually pine trees or pine tree pieces about, annoying holiday-themed pop music playing in stores, images of an old bearded man everywhere, or perhaps a menorah. My parents are both Episcopalians, and I was raised attending Midnight […]

Recipe: On the Fly! Chicken, Bacon, Sweet Potato Hash

This recipe is the brethren of my Cabbage Hash with Chicken and Bacon. Both are products of that Well-I’ve-Got-A-Bit-Of-This-And-A-Bit-Of-Thatness that happens when dinner time sneaks up on you. The reason I share these serendipitous recipes with you is not for you to follow to the letter, but to give you a) confidence that you can […]
