Jeremy and I recently visited France – it was an absolutely amazing trip filled with good food and even more excellent wine.
One of my favorite French dishes is duck confit, and it takes so long to make that I’ve never had the patience to make it myself (so I end up ordering it in restaurants whenever I see it on the menu). That’s why I got so excited when I saw ready-cooked duck confit being sold in Costco!
It was so easy to grill it at home and serve it on a bed of greens. If you spot it in Costco, I highly recommend getting it for an easy and delicious quick meal.

I’m not sure what it is about grilled food that makes it taste so great.
In culinary school we learned about the Maillard reaction, the browning effect that happens to toast, coffee, and food on the grill. But I think there’s more too it than that.
Lamb is pretty popular in England, but I was never a fan of it. Later, I figured out that there was nothing wrong with lamb – I actually really enjoy lamb – but it had to be fresh lamb cooked well so that it was tender.
My mum recently started making these great grilled lamb chops – so tender, so flavorful! And so I just had to share this recipe with you. Plus they’re really easy. Even if you think you don’t like lamb, give these a taste when you next fire up the grill!
This is a great quick summer recipe!
This is such a simple and delicious recipe and perfect for showing off your grilling skills without possessing any of those skills! It’s all in the marinade, and luckily, making the marinade just means dumping all the ingredients into a large bowl and stirring it. It’s also great because flank steak is such a cheap steak, so you can grill this all the time!
Saturday morning started with a really exhausting crossfit workout (wod was Helen), and so I needed something high in protein for brunch. Of course, it also had to be delicious! Having just bought some nice and ripe avocados the previous day, guacamole burgers seemed to be the perfect idea!
Since the weather’s been good recently, I decided to make use of the grill a bit more. Shrimp seemed like a great idea since it’s not something I often cook! I found a simple and well-reviewed recipe on allrecipes.com and didn’t even have to change it much as all the ingredients were already Paleo-acceptable (except for the tomato sauce, which sometimes contains added sugar if you buy the cans, and so I switched it for 2 tablespoons of tomato paste and 1/2 cup of water). The original recipe can be found here. It basically consists of marinating the shrimp in a tomato-ey sauce.
