Venison Chili

I have never cooked venison before I made this dish, but I have had venison chili in the past, so when my Dad brought home a bunch of venison from work, I knew I had to try to make a chili.  This dish came out surprisingly good.  I honestly thought the meat would be slightly…

Bacon Bourbon Meatballs

I made these for a holiday party and have made them for several parties since.  They were a real hit- I actually doubled the recipe after I made them the first time because they were gone before I even put them down!  They disappeared even quicker the second time I brought them.  These will be…

Paleo Beef Stir Fry

I’m sure you guys have heard me say this one before- my husband loves Chinese food.  Loves.  Me- not so much.  However, I find when I cook my own Chinese-style dishes, I really enjoy them much more.  This dish was not an exception.  I based my recipe off this one and was really surprised to…

“Guaranteed To Get You Laid” Lasagna

That’s right.  This lasagna is “Guaranteed To Get You Laid.”  This is another Matty Matheson recipe.  We saw it on YouTube and I had to try it.  What do you mean this is the way Italians should make lasagna?  This is blasphemous.  I couldn’t resist the temptation. My mouth is still watering thinking about the…

Paleo Pumpkin Chili

I’m as basic as they come.  Mid-September hits and it can be 80 degrees outside, but I can be found with my Pumpkin Spiced Latte, boots and sweater snuggled up with a book (sweating…).  Just like all the other basic white girls out there, I love fall.  I love the crisp air, beautiful fall leaves,…

Sloppy Joe’s

This recipe was a HUGE hit in my house.  Who doesn’t love Sloppy Joe’s??  Everyone loves Sloppy Joe’s.  That meaty sweet flavor… it reminds us of childhood, of family.  This recipe is super simple and super delicious.  I made a large salad on the side and got little gluten free buns for me and my…

Slow Cooker Orange Roast

This was an extremely simple meal.  There’s a little bit of prep you can do in the morning or even the night before.  It’s literally a full meal cooked in the crock pot.  I also cooked up some green beans o the side for some extra veggies, but you don’t necessarily need it.  If I…

Nachos with Plantain Chips

This is another recipe my husband asks for on a regular basis.  The plantain chips give you that crispness you’re looking for when it comes to nachos that you’d be missing from regular chips.  You prepare the ground beef like you would a chili, but it definitely takes less time. This is another recipe from…

German Sauerbraten, Potato Pancakes and Cabbage

May isn’t really time for Oktoberfest, but my husband craves German food on a daily basis.  His roots are German and this kind of food is his “soul food.”  This is a recipe that has been passed down, translated and used by several generations in his family.  I’m now passing it down to you. Be…

Slow Cooker Roast

This is a version of pot roast that comes from my “Paleo Slow Cooking” book by Chrissy Gower.  Another really easy recipe where you can simply chop up a few things in the morning and throw it all into the crock pot.  Set it and forget it!!!  I easily roasted some little potatoes for the…

The Best Flank Steak Marinade

I enjoy the simple things in life.  A piece of flank steak is one of them.  A piece of flank steak that’s been marinating in the best marinade on the planet overnight that makes your taste buds sing when you put it in your mouth… Even better. I’ve been searching for a really good marinade…

Chocolate Chili

This is one of our favorite recipes that we keep coming back to.  I don’t repeat a lot of recipes- I like to make new things all the time.  But I make this at least once a month. I want to kiss whoever thought of putting chocolate in chili.  It’s not really chocolate, but cocoa powder…
