Chicken Soup by Paleo Comfort Foods

We had our first, but short lived, cold snap in Austin last week and I had a craving for warm soup.  Having a good supply of chicken broth in my deep freeze, I decided to give the Chicken Soup from  Paleo Comfort Foods: Homestyle Cooking for a Gluten-Free Kitchen a try.  I've not found where they have posted this recipe online, so I hope you have this cookbook.  It's worth every penny!

Hot Wings from Paleo Indulgences

I love buffalo hot wings.  I've seen many paleo recipes for them, but have never made them before.  After enjoying the fish sticks from Tammy Credicott's Paleo Indulgences: Healthy Gluten-Free Recipes to Satisfy Your Primal Cravings , I thought I'd give her wing recipe a try.  What's great about this recipe, if you omit the honey, as I did, its not really that much of an "indulgence."  Unfortunately, I don't see that this recipe has been posted by Tammy or anyone else yet online, so you'll have to get the book.    

First, I gathered my ingredients and pre-heated my oven.

Red Wine Sauce by Food Lovers Primal Palate

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!  I don't cook for Thanksgiving, so I don't have any special Thanksgiving posts ready.  Sorry.  So, when you're tired of turkey, come on by, I've got you covered!  

I love pasta.  Unfortunately, pasta does not love me. Luckily, I've learned to live without it.  Today's recipe is a Red Wine Sauce from Food Lovers Kitchen, a.k.a. Food Lovers Primal Palate.  I'm really not certain what Hayley Mason and Bill Staley wish to be referred to as generally, but it's their recipe.  It is not found in their book, Make it Paleo: Over 200 Grain Free Recipes For Any Occasion.  

I first gathered my ingredients.

Well Fed Thanksgiving Class & Beef Liver and Onion Meatballs

Before I get to the recipe of the day, last night, I had the awesome opportunity to go to a cooking demonstration given by Melissa Joulwan herself at Whole Foods.  The class was titled "Paleo Thanksgiving."

Cake cutting is serious business.

Robb Wolf's Sloppy Joes

I'm continuing to explore some recipes that I have overlooked simply because they don't have glossy pictures to lure me me in.  I loved Sloppy Joes as a kid.  My mom didn't make them often, but I always loved the gooey sauce and meat on a bun.  I've ditched the bun, but doesn't mean it won't taste just as good on some veggies.  So let's give the Sloppy Joes from Robb Wolf's The Paleo Solution a try.  I did not see where Robb has posted this recipe online, but if you do some internet searching you may or may not be able to find the exact recipe.

Salsa Verde by Paleo Comfort Foods

A few weeks ago, I made a great pork chop dish that originally called for Salsa Verde.  When I couldn't find a store brand, I modified the recipe and resolved to make my own Salsa Verde in the future.  That time has come.  I decided to give Paleo Comfort Foods' recipe a go.  I did a little searching and didn't see that they have posted this recipe anywhere themselves, so if you don't have the Mayfield's book, I highly recommend it.  I don't think I've had a recipe from that book that I wouldn't give a thumbs up to so far.

Quest for Condiments: Tartar Sauce & Cocktail Sauce

When eating foods like fish sticks, the meal experience is just not the same without condiments.  I like both tartar sauce and cocktail sauce, so I decided it was high time to try to make these two condiments.  Making Paleo Indugences's fish sticks, gave me the perfect opportunity to make both.  I prepared both of these sauces in advance of cooking my fish so that they could refrigerate a bit.

Paleo Comfort Foods Tartar Sauce

I decided to try the tartar sauce recipe from Paleo Comfort Foods: Homestyle Cooking for a Gluten-Free Kitchen.  I did not see where the Mayfield's had posted this recipe online or that anyone else has, so I hope you have their book!

I gathered my ingredients.  This recipe is a lot quicker, of course, if you already have some paleo mayonnaise prepared.

Paleo Indulgences's Fish Sticks

I like entering contests.  If you have any of the big paleo names in your social networking feeds, you know that every week there seems to be a new contest out there.  I recently entered a contest through Tammy Credicott's site, where one of the prizes was an autographed copy of her new cookbook: Paleo Indulgences: Healthy Gluten-Free Recipes to Satisfy Your Primal Cravings.  Say that three times fast.  When I received Tammy's email saying I had one a copy of the book, I couldn't believe I had finally won something!  Little did she know she was giving this little site one more recipe resource.

As I'm working on some body composition goals, much of her beautiful book is off limits to me right now, but decided to give her fish stick recipe a try.
