I discovered something that is life changing… I started baking my salmon!  BBS (before baked salmon) era, I was frying my salmon in a stainless steel frying pan and I had to deal with the fish sticking to the pan, oil splatter, a mess to clean up…it was a pain.  Then one day it happened. …

Teriyaki Turkey Wings

I was walking through the grocery store hunting for meat.  With my shopping cart in hand I slowly crawled through the aisles looking for my prey.  I quietly approached the poultry section without my prey noticing.  I was aiming towards chicken and then I saw a glimpse of the big one!  I approached cautiously hoping…

How to Cook Liver so you Actually Like it!

How to Cook Liver so you Actually Like it!

I started eating liver a few months ago.  I wouldn’t touch the stuff as a kid.  I found that liver tastes excellent (yes, excellent!) when you a) season it and b) don’t overcook it. If you are new to the idea of eating head-to-toe (eating the whole animal, not just the fancy parts) liver is…

Paleo Stuffed Hot Peppers

Paleo Stuffed Hot Peppers

When I lived in my apartment in Toronto, I used to make mini Paleo stuffed peppers with jalapeño peppers and the meat mixture below.  The Paleo stuffed peppers were so hot it was hard to finish a plateful.  I would make extra and eat them for a quick breakfast.  This time around I saw some…

Mini Paleo Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Mini Paleo Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

I’m finally starting to make seasonal recipes.  I had to check on Facebook to see if it was still Football season so I could give you a paleo Superbowl Sunday snack or meal.  I have a confession to make….I don’t watch football…or sports so I never know when these things are happening.  All I know…

Nut Free Chicken Nuggets

I experimented with nut free crusts before when I made Chicken Fries.  This recipe is using the same idea but for nut free chicken nuggets.  Sesame seeds are a great alternative to almond flour for a coating on chicken.  They are cheap and grind up easily in a coffee grinder.  They do have a slight…

Paleo Taco Bowl

Paleo Taco Bowl

I love the comforting flavours of anything Mexican like.  I could live on tacos, shredded chicken, guacamole etc etc.  Paleo Taco Bowl came to my rescue during another round of WordPress problem.   I’m not sure why I keep getting the brunt of WordPress mishaps but it is exhausting.  I can’t link to stuff properly, I…
