Paleo Chicken Enchilada Casserole

A luscious and authentic Southwest dinner – Paleo style, this tastes even better than the original Tex-Mex version. I made it for a potluck dinner, and it vanished. However no one could believe it is gluten-free, grain-free, corn-free, and cheese-free.

Baked Egg in Delicata Squash

Delicata squash is a mouth-wateringly nourishing meal, and the hollow center is perfect for stuffing. Even better, the skin is so soft you can eat it! I’s a super-easy breakfast, lunch or dinner that’s perfect for any season.

Easy Paleo Quiche

Is it really possible to bake a pie with no pre-made crust? Yes it is! This is a deeeelicious, gluten-free, Paleo quiche you can make in just one step. When it bakes, there’s a magical crust on the bottom, sides, and top. The crust is created by layering the ingredients: coconut butter, cooked meat, onions, veggies, and pour the batter on top. Then bake, and presto!

Paleo Spaghetti Alla Carbonara

I love authentic carbonara, but the pasta causes me to gain weight. However Zucchini noodles are the key to an easy meal. They’re super-low in carbs, so I feel svelt and satisfied after eating. Traditional Italian carbonara is made with raw eggs cooked on contact by boiling hot

Cauliflower Risotto with English Peas

Today I discovered fresh organic English peas in the market! When I lived in Italy, fresh peas in the pod were a sign of spring. Everyone rushes home to make this risotto, called “Risi e Bisi” in Venetian dialect, or “Rice with Peas”. However you won’t find this particular risotto in Italy!

Turkey-Meatloaf

Paleo Meatloaf

This is by far the best meatloaf I’ve ever tasted! My Mom’s meatloaf holds a place near and dear to my heart. But this tastes even better! Plus it’s Paleo, gluten-free and grain-free, made without the usual fillers and prepared sauces. This recipe works equally well with ground beef, lamb, buffalo, or turkey.

Mushroom-Risotto

Mushroom Risotto with Quinoa

An authentic Italian risotto, re-invented Paleo style, means it has a wonderful broth, and rich, deep flavor of Parmesan cheese. I was planning a cauliflower risotto for you today. But someone in the family cooked up a batch of sprouted quinoa that has to be used. Wow!

Dairy-free Mozzarella Cheese

An accidental discovery, this is now my absolute favorite “cheese” for Pizza. We DO want cheese on our pizza! It slices beautifully, and uses pure coconut instead of dairy. It has a milder flavor than Vegan Cheddar Cheese and Paleo Parmesan Cheese. Easy to blend, it’s not quite an exact duplicate of the mozzarella taste. However it’s so close

Paleo-Salmon-Crepes

Wild Salmon Paleo Crepes

These luscious rolled salmon crepes taste so delectable, with a rich, creamy sauce. You can use my easy Paleo Crepes recipe, or prepare them ahead of time and freeze. This recipe is Paleo, gluten-free and dairy-free, made with coconut or almond

Turkey-Tetrazzini

Paleo Turkey Tetrazzini

This is my favorite turkey recipe in the world! BTW, Turkey Tetrazzini is NOT Italian. It was invented by the famous soprano Luisa Tetrazzini. She asked for creamed turkey over spaghetti with Parmeggiano Reggiano, and she got it! She lived at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, where the chef prepared it for her.

Paleo Vegan Macaroni and “Cheese”

Today I was in the mood for my favorite comfort food – Macaroni and Cheese! Rich and satisfying, this recipe is 100% free of gluten, grains, dairy, and eggs. Instead of pasta it uses zucchini, which has a mild flavor and absorbs the “cheese sauce” beautifully.

Paleo Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie has been my favorite since I was a little girl. This is an easy Paleo Pie baked in a skillet with a top crust only. The delicious crispy crust is gluten-free, grain-free, and low-carb. However it rolls out so easily and tastes so rich, you’d never guess it’s “alternative”.

Paleo-Shepherd's-Pie

Nov 10

Paleo Shepherd’s Pie

How shall I describe this pie? It has a rich, satisfying flavor that is zesty with “cheese” and garlic crust. It is chock full of vegetables in a luscious meat gravy. Shepherd’s Pie is a traditional Irish meat pie with mashed potatoes.

Paleo Egg Muffins with “Cheese”

I just discovered an easy breakfast or snack everyone loves. It’s a flexible one-dish meal, bag lunch, or finger food for holiday parties, picnics and travel. Like an omlet in a muffin, it’s chock full of vegetables, and high in protein too. Kids love to eat them with their hands – no need for a fork.

Paleo-Lasagna

Aug 24

Best Paleo Lasagna

My friends go crazy for this amazing lasagna. With its rich layers and luscious flavors, every bite transports me to Italy. However I can’t eat wheat, cheese, or tomatoes. So this recipe uses zucchini strips, coconut ricotta filling, Vegan Parmesan Cheese, and No-Tomato Sauce. Or use

Paleo Chicken Curry

Coconut Chicken Curry is a favorite Asian dish, and every chef has a personal version. The traditional Thai recipe uses peanut sauce. However peanuts are a common allergen, and as a legume they are not part of the Paleo diet. Instead, this recipe uses sunflower butter, which gives it an exotic
