Paleo Mom Lemon Dill Poached Salmon

Poaching fish has always been a cooking method that has intrigued me but at the same time seemed scary.  While looking for autoimmune paleo recipes, I came across The Paleo Mom's Lemon Dill Poached Salmon.  After having great success with her Pad Thai, I decided it was time to tackle poaching.  

I gathered my ingredients.  This recipe appealed to me as it required minimal preparation and it only used one pot.

Slow Cooker Italian Pork Roast from The Clothes Make the Girl

It's hotter than heck here in Austin, Texas and I'm not liking the idea of turning the oven on at all. I had a pork roast to cook and decided that my slow cooker was the way to go.  After a little searching, I settled on this Slow Cooker Italian Pork Roast from Melissa Joulwan's The Clothes Make the Girl.  I don't know about you but I am super excited about Well Fed 2!

Sage-Braised Chicken Legs from The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook

I'm always on the look out for dishes that I think could be a weeknight dinner.  What's a weeknight dinner for me?  One that doesn't keep me in the kitchen for longer than an hour and has minimal clean up.  While looking through Mickey Trescott's Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook, her Sage-Braised Chicken Legs looked like a contender for weeknight dinner status.   

I gathered my ingredients and preheated my oven.

Chicken Meatloaf Muffins from Mammoth Kitchen

Before getting a copy of Mickey Trescott's Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook, I did what I typically do and looked for recipes on the internet that looked appealing to me but were within the parameters of my current Autoimmune Protocol N=1 experiment.    I came across this recipe for Chicken Meatloaf Muffins from Mammoth Kitchen.  They appealed to me because the recipe calls for grinding your own chicken.

It looks like the Mammoth Kitchen site is down as of the morning that I'm posting this.  If its changed URLs I couldn't find an alternate.  Regardless, the recipe was out there, I cooked it, and here it is.  

I gathered my ingredients.  Because I'm making this AIP, I omitted the eggs which the recipe encourages.

Pressure Braised Beef Necks with Mushroom Gravy

While at the grocery store, I saw some meaty beef neck bones and I could not leave them at the store. Beef necks?  Yes.  Don't be afraid.  The beef neck, is a cut that is very similar to beef shanks and oxtail. It has a high cartilage content and typically needs to be cooked for a long period of time for it to be tender.  After my success with the Tangy Country Style Ribs in the pressure cooker, I wanted to use these beefy bones in my pressure cooker.  I came across this recipe for Braised Oxtails with Mushrooms and decided to modify it for my pressure cooker. Evidently, the recipe is from The Complete Meat Cookbook by Bruce Aidells and Denis Kelly.  I don't have this book but it sure looks like a good one.  I might add it to my cookbook wish list. Yes, I have a cookbook wish list.

Before gathering my ingredients, I divided all of the recipe ingredients so that I'd only be making a 1/3 of the recipe as written because I was going to be using my pressure cooker and the full recipe would overfill the cooker.  I'll provide the measurements I used if anyone is interested and doesn't want to do the math for themselves.

Sautéed Market Greens from The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook

When I decided to try the Chicken Liver with Raw Garlic and Thyme from Mickey Trescott's Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook, I decided to take her suggestion and make the Sautéed Market Greens as well.  As I was just cooking for myself, I made a half recipe. 

I gathered my ingredients.

Chicken Liver with Raw Garlic and Thyme form the Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook

Me and chicken livers do not have a good past together.  Every once and a while I like to try a recipe with them just to see if either my palate has changed.  While looking through Mickey Trescott's Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook, her recipe for Chicken Liver with Raw Garlic and Thyme looked like a recipe I should try.  I gathered my ingredients and got to work.

Mustard Glazed Chicken Thighs from Practical Paleo

Since having to clean my freezer out of all of my emergency protein, I needed to get some AIP compliant meat ready to go.  I hadn't received my copy of the Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook yet, but I knew that Diane Sanfilippo's Practical Paleo had many recipes for an AIP protocol.   

I came across her recipe for Mustard Glazed Chicken Thighs.
