Remember childhood sloppy joes… This is so much better and perfect for after school snacks. You can just serve on your favorite buns, over spaghetti or grilled vegetables for a paleo option.  

Anyway you decided will be great.  Just double the recipe to feed a crowd.

Cindy's Tip!  Make ahead and just keep warm in your slow cooker to enjoy anytime.  We love to keep this on the counter at our lake house.  The kids can serve themselves when they are hungry!  Yummy

 

Best Pan Seared Pork Chops

  • Complexity: easy

Best Pan Seared Pork Chops

These pork chops were simply amazing.  Using my Cast Iron pan was perfect for our dinner.  Get it really hot to sear the chops then the oven will do the rest.  I did let the pork chops marinade for a few hours in the refrigerator seasoned with salt, pepper, fresh rosemary and thyme from my garden then olive oil.  

I made these for 3 of us!  I used the Center Cut Pork Chop Loin but you can use any cut for this recipe.

Enjoy xo

Better Butter Tilapia

I was watching a video on better butter chicken and thought it would be a great way to try this on my granddaughter.  She is picky with seafood but loves chicken.  This paleo seafood dish was a hit and tilapia is so mild I think she thought it was chicken!  A healthy fake-out!

Braised Tuscan Pork Chops

This recipe has been a favorite for TV cooking segments when I share recipes from my new cookbook Paleo Italian Cooking!  Get your copy and check out the other healthy Italian recipes!

In Tuscan and Spanish cooking you will see the word sofrito in many recipes. Sofrito is the combination of tomatoes, onions, peppers, carrots, garlic and fresh herbs to create a sauce. I use a sofrito in many of my recipes and is a perfect way to enjoy this dish.

You can use some of the sauce and use over zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash. I love to grill vegetables and top with this sofrito.

Cast Iron Pork Tenderloin with Vegetables and Bacon

It's Friday night and we are in Massachusetts for December therefore it's all about comfort food in my house. I wanted to use my favorite cast iron pan and make a one pot meal perfect for the 2 of us.  It does take a few steps but I actually served from this pan and the flavors were amazing especially the bacon!

This is a perfect dinner for 2 with maybe some left over for lunch the next day for 1 of you..   Enjoy :)

Chefs Note:  You will find below that I want you to remove the pork at 140 degrees.  You don't want it over cooked and when you continue cooking after adding in the vegetables then let rest a few minutes and slice.  The pork will continue cooking.

Cauliflower Crust Paleo Pizza

Enjoy a Paleo Pizza for dinner with a cauliflower crust. You can add any of your favorite toppings! Don't you just love paleo recipes. I love to top my pizza with fresh herbs.

Cindy's Tip! In a hurry just cut the head of cauliflower into florets and place in a microwave bowl then add water to cover half.  Set the timer for 7 minutes, drain then process!  

Disclaimer! I like a little cheese on my pizza but feel free to omit. Sauté up some greens or top with left over chicken or meatballs.  Go ahead make a pizza perfect for you!

I love using my 12inch Lodge cast iron pans!  You can prepare, bake and serve out of these pan.  I love one-pot recipes.

Channa Masala

My husband was in India a few months back and our friends sent him home with a suitcase full of spices.  I decided to make a dish with some of my favorite ingredients chickpeas and peas.  Traditionally this dish is not prepared with green peas but I love them so they were added and I loved every bite!  

I have to admit that these spices are not used often in my kitchen and the combination was a little hot " spicy hot" for me but I still enjoyed it very much.  I will defiantly make it again.

I also made a batch of my Paleo Naan Bread to dip in the sauce and what a super yummy dish!

Chicken Parmesan

My family loves when I let them know we are having Chicken Parmesan for dinner! It's funny because many times when we go out to dinner my husband will order Chicken Parmesan then say, "that is not as good as your".  I always ask him why he orders it when we both know he won't like it!  

I love my chicken very thin for cutlets and therefore for parmesan.  I hope you love my chicken parmesan.  It's so easy to make your own tomato sauce - here is my recipe!

Enjoy

Cubanelle and Veal Bolognese

I have found myself to have daily visits to Joseph's Classic Market theses days and creating new recipes.

Not only do we have amazing markets here in Palm Beach Gardens but our farmers markets are spectacular spectacular and only 2 miles from my house each Sunday.  How perfect is that for me!  At the market I always go to Benders tent as they have everything I need and it's fresh.  The prices are great and it's per items so there is no waiting to weigh.  They had cubanella peppers 4 for $1.00.  Of course I got 4 and grilled 2 with our steak dinner.  Looking at the remaining 2 this dish came to me and I served it with sweet potato pasta!  YUMMY Paleo dinner....

Easy falafel Recipe

I have been making so many Greek salads for Brooke and I this summer.  My granddaughter loves salads, vegetables and chicken.  

My future daughter-in-law was over this past weekend with the kids and I knew she would enjoy falalfels with me in a pita pocket filled with a Greek salad then drizzled with EVOO.  YUMMY!

Enjoy xo

Cindy's Tip!  Keep dried seasonings handy.  Fresh herbs are easy to keep all year. Outside during the summer and bring inside and set near a sunny window for fresh herbs in the winter too!

 

Garlic Crusted Rack of Lamb with Shallot Sauce
  • Time: 1 hour
  • Complexity: medium

Garlic Crusted Rack of Lamb with Shallot Sauce

OMG - That is the only work I can think of to start this recipe.  I love one pot recipes and this one was  a big hit for dinner.  We had another couple over for dinner and my husband kept asking me, "are you sure that pan is big enough"  Of course honey!  My lodge cast iron pan is Amazing and has not left my stove stop for the entire month of December!  The shallot sauce really made this dish pop with extra flavor.  All of those bits from the lamb along with the shallot, mustard and broth were the perfect combination!

Go ahead and make this! 

BTW! Mostly because it's just Glenn and I (and of course Jake) we don't need to do big shopping therefore I go almost everyday.  Almost everyone I know has told me the meats at Costco are great!  We really had a hard time believing that as we go to specialty meat markets for ours.  Well, I was at Costco with my sister-in-law and she grabbed 2 so I decided to get myself a few.  WOW the meat was amazing!  Very impressed by their meats.  Great for families or entertaining!

 

Garlic Devil Chicken
  • Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Complexity: easy

Garlic Devil Chicken

The name devil chicken came from the amount of red chili pepper flakes you add to the dish.  I happened a lot of garlic and roasted it then didn't know what to do with it so I added to the sauce of this dish.  OMG delicious!

You can ask your butcher to cut up a whole chicken to feed a family.  I love left overs so picked up 2 bone-in breast and 2 thighs for my husband and I.  

I also used the  garlic in my sauté garlic and roasted up butternut squash to complete this dish.

Enjoy!

I am really enjoying creating bowl recipes!  It's fun enjoying all of the flavors together.  Not to mention we just love meatballs in our family.  I hope you love this recipe!

Cindy's Note:  You can use spaghetti squash, rice noodles or even zucchini noodles.  I used linguini just because but also made it again and used spaghetti squash.  Very yummy!!!  

Spaghetti Squash - After I baked the squash and removed the strands then put in a bowl.  I added fresh ginger, salt pepper and chopped cilantro then drizzled a little sesame oil!  Amazing....

Sorry I took the picture before we garnished and ate!  We just couldn't wait.....

Grilled Corn and Creamy Poblano Sauté
  • Time: 35 minutes
  • Complexity: easy

Grilled Corn and Creamy Poblano Sauté

We only eat corn late summer when it's tender and sweet.  At the lake house we entertain often and preparing this dish in advance was a great way to feed a crowd while enjoying local summer corn!  We loved the spice from poblano and jalapenô peppers!  

Go ahead and give this a try.  If you can't find local fresh corn then use frozen corn.  (I actually added a frozen bag of white sweet corn as 4 extra friends were coming over and I was afraid there would not be enough).

Enjoy xo

PS

I love my LeCreuset Pan!  Stove, Oven to Table!  Perfect.....

Italian Filled Braciole
  • Time: 4-6 hours
  • Complexity: easy

Italian Filled Braciole

Braciole is a popular Italian dish. Using flank steak works the best as it becomes very tender after slow cooking all day.  You can roll the meat with your favorite filling.  I had frozen kale handy along with the other ingredients.  I picked up the flank steak at Joseph's Classic Market.  

Enjoy this Italian specialty!  

PS  If you don't have kitchen twine at home just ask your butcher! They will be more than happy to provide some for you. 

 

 

Italian Vegetable Soup
  • Time: 30 mintues
  • Complexity: easy

Italian Vegetable Soup

It's very cold here in Massachusetts in December.  I love soup and so does my granddaughter Brooke.  No matter what time of the year it is wr love to make soup.

Since I keep many vegetables in the refrigerator, in the pantry and in the freezer.  Frozen vegetables are so handy.  Don't you get so mad when you buy fresh vegetables and you don't use them for a few days then when you grab them - they are bad!  I HATE wasting food and money.  That's why I keep vegetables I don't use everyday in the freezer.

Now I am not advertising for Bush's but I do love their chili starter beans.  You also use the juice in the can to add extra flavor to your soups or chilis.  If you use "regular" canned beans please drain and rinse before adding to your soups and chilis.

This soup is amazing!  If I may say so myself.  Enjoy xo Cindy

P.S.  Since I haven't been feeling good and sipping on green tea with fresh ginger and tumeric.  I decided to shred some tumeric into the soup as well.  #tumeric

Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Bolognese

Don't we all love our Thanksgiving Leftovers!  We do in our house and we always make a soup which is always a hit.  Being Italian I love making a bolognese.  I love to add in some of the butternut squash to sweeten up the sauce.  To make this a paleo pasta dish use spaghetti squash which is what I do and it's so good!

Enjoy Paleo Italian Leftovers!
