Pork Chops, Kale and Mushroom in a Spicy Broth

Here is another one pot recipe that you can prepare, cook and serve in 30 minutes with no mess to clean after!  Just the pot and your plates.  Enjoy this paleo recipe for 2!  

If you want to know my "secret ingredient" to make the sauce in this dish and some of my others extremely special...   It's adding a little Dijon Mustard in the broth.  I promise once you try it - You will add it to many of your dishes!  Go ahead..  try it..

Pork Milanese with a Lemon Creamy Caper Sauce

  • Complexity: medium

Pork Milanese with a Lemon Creamy Caper Sauce

My husband wanted veal milanese which I make often over an arugula salad but I felt like changing it up a bit and came up with this super yummy recipe.  You can make it a paleo recipe by using a GF breadcrumb or make your own paleo bread.  You can also use coconut cream for the sauce.  I decided to make a traditional recipe and even make homemade gnocchi to go with the dish, garlic sauté spinach and a vegetable filled salad with homemade dressing!  Glenn just loved this dish and so did I....   Go ahead and give it a try.

Note: In this recipe I made enough for 4 people (we had company that night) so I bought 8 boneless pork loin chops (they seemed small to me) and we actually had 2 left over and it was great for lunch the next day!.

 

 

 

Portobello Ragu
  • Time: 1-2 hours
  • Complexity: easy

Portobello Ragu

This Portobello ragu is hearty and flavorful. I love to serve over zucchini noodles or with sautéed chicken. You can use fresh or dried herbs for this ragu. My recommendation would be to add the fresh herbs in towards the end of the cooking process but the dried herbs can go in right away!

You can also find this recipe in my cookbook: Paleo Italian Cooking

 

 

 

Rack of Lamb Marsala

Rack of Lamb Marsala

Roasted Beet Salad with Dijon Shallot
  • Time: 1 hour
  • Complexity: easy

Roasted Beet Salad with Dijon Shallot

Beets have become wildly popular lately! I get so excited when I see a beet salad on a menu or when at a friend's house and they ask, "do you like beets?" I remember being a little girl and being served the canned beets which have no flavor and the texture is not very pleasant. When you roast beets they really come to life and adding my simple Dijon dressing makes this the perfect starter for any dinner party or just because!

 

*CHEFS NOTE* We all think about the dreaded red beet fingers and hands when it comes to beets. I like to take fresh beets and cut the green off as close as I can get to the beet. Then scrub with water and a brush to really get it clean. Then roast and let cool. Once is it cool, the skin should come off very easily with your fingers. I try to go fast so red isn't everywhere but you can also wear gloves. Another way is to peel the beet while under cold water- again going fast!

Roasted Cipollini Onions

  • Complexity: easy

Roasted Cipollini Onions

Cipollini's are a staple in Italian homes.  We mostly had them during the holidays but they are great with grilled steak or even burgers.  They become sweet and tender and adding the balsamic vinegar brings out so much flavor.  These little guys can be very addictive! 

You can also find this recipe in my cookbook: Paleo Italian Cooking.

**Cindy's Tip! If you slice off the root end of the cipollini onion with a sharp paring knife before boiling, then it will be much easier to peel. **

There are so many ways to enjoy roasted red peppers!  I know you can get them in a jar but grilling them is so easy and taste so much better.  I buy then on sale or at the farmers market and grill all of them and use them many ways throughout the week.  Check out my recipes using roasted red peppers.

Salmon Frittata

As part of my Cook Once Meals All Week series on Better Connecticut this salmon recipe works great with cooked chicken.  If you don’t have cooked salmon then use smoked salmon for this delicious recipe.  If you are making for brunch, lunch or dinner top with an arugula or Mediterranean salad (just include capers).

Enjoy this healthy and Paleo Recipes!

Thank you City Fish for the amazing salmon!

I included Gourmet Mushrooms in the name because there is a package of mushrooms called Gourmet Mushrooms.  They include shitake, oyster, bella

This recipe is so easy and I love making this for a crowd.  We entertain often and our guests don’t want me slaving over the stove to feed them but this easy breakfast is so full of color and flavor that everyone is thrilled to enjoy this dish.  The peppery addition of the rocket really brings this dish to life.

I love left overs and especially during our Hewfit challenge I am hungry more often.

Last night I made Chicken Scarpiello and packed up the extra chicken and chicken sausage and made this dish.  I will share a recipe for you to cook up chicken if you don't have left overs handy.  Actually, go and pick up a rotisserie chicken. That would be super easy!

Enjoy!

Strawberry and Apple Jam
  • Time: 30 Minutes
  • Complexity: medium

Strawberry and Apple Jam

At the lake we always have a lot of fruit to make salads, desserts or to just cut up and put out when we have company.  (which is a lot).  For some reason both my husband and I picked up 2 one pound packages of strawberries.  

I try to do an inventory check in the refrigerator a couple times a week.  Don't you hate when good food ends up in the back of the refrigerator and it goes bad.  I certainly do!  

This weekend I think strawberry short cake will be a great dessert for our family get-together and we will pick up fresh strawberries but to keep the ones we have and before they go bad I thought about making a jam to preserve them.  Since there are 2 apples in the refrigerator draw I will be incorporating them as well.

We love quiche at our house and the best part is I prepare the day before then slice, warm and serve for breakfast.. So easy and so yummy. This is a great paleo recipe and gluten free. I just love the sweet potato crust along with pancetta, zucchini and I purchased the gourmet package of mushroom with a great variety, a little onion and italian herbs. Perfecto!

I used my Noodle Maker but there are other devices or even a vegetable peeler.

We used the pan you see in the photo on the grill.  Glenn got the pan really hot and we brushed a little olive oil.

This recipe is a fancy name for an Italian meatloaf made in a spring form pan but it really works and the acorn squash really gives it extra magical flavorful and looks beautiful.

Feel free to use frozen spinach if you have it handy. Just thaw and squeeze well with a white paper towel or clean towel.
