Recipe: Autumn Pumpkin Breakfast

I know, I know. We need another pumpkin recipe like we need a hole in our heads. But let’s give in to the whims of seasonality, shall we? Besides, lest we give into the temptation of pumpkin spice lattes and other sugar- and grain-filled not-so-goodies, it doesn’t hurt to scratch that itch occasionally. And here’s […]

Recipe: Moroccan Breakfast Mash

Oh yeah, kiddos. Buckle up, this one’s good. The basic recipe here is simple: steam some sweet potato and plantain together, then mash it up. Each time I’ve made it, it’s been different. Maybe I toss in some almond butter, maybe I don’t. Maybe I spoon in some pastured butter or coconut butter or some […]

Recipe: Spiced Espresso-Rubbed Breakfast Steak

Espresso-rubbed steak appears to be a popular restaurant feature. But here’s the deal: Every time I see it on a menu, it’s about 7pm and I’ll be damned if I’m about to embark on an all-night bender at my advanced age. If only I’d known about the sublime relationship between coffee and beef back in […]

Recipe: Big. Ass. Pancake.

This is similar in spirit to my Pumpkin Frittata, but just a smidgeon different. I’ve made this a few times now, and I’m guessing it’s pretty adaptable to whatever you have around the house. The pancake batter is the same, but the additions are up to you. So far, I’ve made a sweet potato one […]

Recipe: Pumpkin Frittata

I think. I think this is a frittata. Something like that, anyway. I dreamed this up and hoped it would work, because I needed something to break up the breakfast boredom. If you’re in the mood for something sweet-ish without actually being sweet, this is a good one. As is, it’s Whole30 compliant, but if […]

Recipe: Steak and Eggs w/ Avocado Salsa

This is obviously not a Wednesday-morning-on-the-way-to-work kinda recipe, but if you have a quiet, lazy Sunday in your future, this one is worth the little bit of extra effort. Or this would make a great dinner if you’re all frittata-ed out. If you don’t have any leftover steak—a habit you may want to cultivate since […]

Recipe: Primal Banana Bread

That “B” word doesn’t show up much around these parts. But I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect banana bread for years. Going Primal didn’t slow my urge for a moist, dense loaf of bananafied goodness, so I decided to try a few recipes out there. What I kept running into was something closer […]

Recipe: Strawberry-Vanilla Almond Muffins

Yeah, yeah, I know. This is really just an easy change to a recipe I just posted. So sue me. But this version was such a wonderful hit of spring that I had to share. Besides, I was swimming—SWIMMING!—in strawberries and I needed to find a way to use them before they decomposed on me. […]

Recipe: Blueberry-Apricot Cardamom Almond Flour Muffins

Whew, that’s a mouthful! And yes they were. A tasty, tasty mouthful. It was that time again, time for a substitution treat, so I trolled the internet looking for a muffin recipe (see my previous article about substitutions here). I’m not a great baker. Never was pre-Primal either. So you won’t find many original baking […]

Recipe Shout-Out: Primal Blueprint’s Primal Hot Cereal

Or non-cereal. Cereal-approximation. “Cereal.” Noatmeal? You get the idea. Mark Sisson’s and Jennifer Meier’s new Primal Blueprint Quick and Easy Meals cookbook is out and I’m loving the creative breakfast offerings. The Primal Hot Cereal is a wonderful morning option when you’re tapped out on eggs. This happens to me often, and usually, I just […]
