Potato Soup

Not paleo, but I thought I’d log it anyway. I was asked today if I had a recipe for potato soup.  I have to admit that I don’t, but I’m pretty sure I can come up with one. This is in fact based on my clam chowder recipe, making changes …

Barbecued Pork Chops

I tried Sara’s barbecue sauce recipe.  I think I had a little too much onion (all of a smallish one, rather than half of a largish one).  I can’t imagine why anyone would add orange juice, as it was it was sweeter than I want.  A few substitutions. Ingredients small …

Beef Stock

Soup stock is almost a staple in our kitchen.  It’s remarkably useful. Almost any time we have chicken, we save the bones for use in making stock (freezing them until we have enough to use).  If I want beef stock, though, I usually have to go out and buy bones …

Primal Pasta Sauce

Ideally this recipe would use grass-fed meat.  I’m working on it.  The meat I used (both beef and the sausage) was lean enough I had to add olive oil to keep things from getting unpleasant, so if we don’t look too carefully we should be okay. It’s my birthday later …

Primal Egg Nog

So, I decided to take a run at primal egg nog.  It turned out to be really simple, though thanks to a verbal stumble I think it will be referred to around my house as “OG Nog” (note: guttural pronunciation is key; feel free to bellow) from now on. Pictures …

Salad is Boring, huh?

So, I’ve been told that salad is a boring meal.  I don’t think so. This is a pretty simple and straightforward salad with dressing.  The drink is a 20-ounce mug of water (yes, there’s that much salad there) with perhaps 1/2 teaspoon of lime juice. (That handle sticking out of …

Primal Turkey Gravy

As a bit of practice before Christmas I tried to put together a primal turkey dinner.  I got fairly close with Roast turkey Coconut bread stuffing (I’ll put up a recipe for coconut bread later) Curried broccoli salad Berries and whipped coconut milk Gravy The gravy was a bit interesting, …
