Loaded Sweet Potato Lasagna

Every morning I love watching the Today Show while drinking my coffee.  I normally watch the cooking segment (and critique them) and on this morning I was curious who Kevin Curry was from Fit Men Cook so I grab my cup of coffee and sat to watch his segment. 

I am Italian and Love the gym while currently I am doing a weight loss challenge at my gym called HEWFIT and this recipes inspired me to create this dish!

I don't miss the cheese at all!

Enjoy my Paleo version.

PS

I had all of the ingredients handy!  You can use any vegetables you love and enjoy.

Pork Cacciatore

Here is another amazing (if I may say so myself) one-pot Paleo Italian recipe!  OMG OMG OMG is all everyone was saying after each bite!  This is why I love to cook and entertain. We normally grill when we have company at the lake but I wanted to just relax in the sun with my girlfriend Pam and let the oven do the cooking.  What a big hit!  I served with sauteé spinach.

Cindy's Note: I used boneless pork shoulder and they came in 3 pound packages.   I picked up 2 because it really is better the next day!

To prepare on you BGE - Heat your grill to a medium temperature and set the covered pan in the center for 2 hours!

I am just loving my spiralizer attachment from KitchenAid and it's been super busy in my kitchen!  If you don't the kitchenAid attachment there are other ways to spiralize including using a vegetable peeler.

This recipe was inspired by left overs!  I love roasting 2 chickens at once and serving for dinner one night then cutting the rest up and using for several different meals.  I freeze what I won't use in the next 2 days.  I also keep a little packed away for Jake! Love my doggie...

"After hours" Steak, Peppers and Onions Frittata

This recipe goes back to the days when I would go dancing at The Black Brimmer in Manchester, NH and after we would go over to The Red Arrow and order a steak and cheese omelet!  It was so good!

I decided to create a Paleo version and call it "After hours" I added a full red pepper, yellow pepper and 2 thin slices of beef.  This was amazing!  I actually drizzles some sriracha over my piece...  YUMMY...

Enjoy!

"Yaki" Beef Stir Fry

I received a shipment of samples from Bone Suckin' and decided to use the Yaki first for a stir fry.  We were over the top happy with this Yaki "Teriyaki" and I am serious. This is the best we have ever had and it's gluten free.  

I did make 1 chicken breast for me as I am not a big steak fan!  Enjoy xo

3 ingredient Kale Chips

Kale chips are super easy to make or can be super easy to mess up!  We know that is true.  They are just so yummy...

Here is what you need to know to make the perfect crispy kale chips!

First take your kale and remove the ribs. You can easily do this by holding the bottom rib from the leaf with one hand and use the other hand to grip onto the rib and move your hand up the leaf separating the two from each other.  Next, either chop or tear the leaves into small pieces and place in your colander.  Rinse throughly then dry.  I like to lay paper towels down on my counter then create an even layer of the leaves.  Top with another layer of paper towels and press down.  You want the leaves dry before baking them into chips.  If they wet... they will burn!

5 ingredient Pulled Pork

I need to thank Vinny from the meat department at Shop Rite, E. Hartford for the perfect pieces of pork shoulder fort his recipe and for my segment on Better Connecticut.  You are the best Vinny!  

I love making a simple pork shoulder and using it for several recipes!  I created this recipe for my Cook Once Meals or Week cooking segment for Better Connecticut.  

We are cooking this in the oven but you can use this same recipe in your slow cooker for 7-8 hours on medium.
