Even though my heritage is Jewish, my family always celebrated “secular” Christmas with our family friends. We never took up the Jewish tradition of movies and dinner at a Chinese restaurant, and for good reason: we didn’t want to miss out on the food! Not to mention another opportunity to join around the table and celebrate the holiday season with our community. For me, that’s what Christmas is all about.
Ah pizza, your favorite treat for a birthday party, slumber party, after party, any occasion really…

(Above photo used with permission from Mellissa of I Breathe… I’m Hungry.) It’s the time of year to count our blessings, and I have just so many things to be thankful for. Family, good friends, and delicious food all help to keep me warm when the weather gets chilly. I’m also thankful for the great community of Paleo food bloggers and their recipes; because of them, I don’t have to miss any of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes this year.
Baked salmon is one of the easiest recipes, and it’s so nutritious. This is a really easy and tasty combination of flavors. My mum thought it was the best salmon she’d tasted from me.
Chicken wings: a perfect appetizer to any all-American meal! My foreigner boyfriend loves to make chicken wings as a starter when he cooks for “American night” with his friends and I never considered chicken wings to be so exemplary of American cuisine, but it just so happens…
Since we released our favorite Paleo Pasta Recipes last week, I thought it only appropriate to follow up with this list of great Paleo Meatball Recipes as well! What stood out to me though, was that many of these recipes are not totally necessary as a pasta topper –they are amazing as a standalone dish, meaty starter, or take-away poppers for lunchtime or a snack on a long commute.
I never knew broccoli beef was a Chinese dish until I had it in the US! But now, I love it, and it’s easy to make at home too.
I made this dish with leftover Korean shortrib (Galbi), which I found at Costco, but you can use any beef sliced thin and cooked.
I saw a similar broccoli bacon salad in the pre-made food section of my local Whole Foods last week, but the problem I have with buying pre-made food in Whole Foods is they typically cook everything with canola oil!
So, I created a similar salad with broccoli, bacon, red onions, and coconut cream. If you prefer more crunch, you can use raw broccoli instead (I blanched the broccoli first).
I got a Thermomix over a year ago as a wedding gift from some family in Vancouver, and I’ve only just opened the box to use it!
Quite a few readers have emailed me about recipes using the Thermomix as well (if you are in the US, then you probably haven’t come across the Thermomix so read below to find out about it, but it’s become very popular in Australia, Germany, Canada, and Taiwan among other places).
I’ve got quite a lot of kitchen equipment, and so I wasn’t sure what the Thermomix would add. I was quite wrong apparently, and I found it fantastic to use to make soups (although if you have a Vitamix or Blendtec, then those work just as well for this purpose). The blender is very powerful and making soups and mash is easy with this.
Spaghetti squash is a fantastic grain-free noodle that’s super easy to cook. I love sloshing some Paleo sloppy joes on top of spaghetti squash.
What is Spaghetti Squash
According to Wikipedia, “spaghetti squash (Cucurbita pepo var. fastigata) (also called vegetable spaghetti, noodle squash, vegetable marrow, spaghetti marrow, and squaghetti) is an oblong seed-bearing variety of winter squash.”
There are seeds in the middle (which you can roast to eat as a nice Paleo snack) and the “meat” of the squash is hard when raw (like all other squash), but falls apart into spaghetti-like strands.
A reader emailed me a few months ago asking for a Paleo tuna casserole recipe, and I realized that I had zero idea what that was, having not grown up in the US!
What is Tuna Casserole
For those of you that also never had tuna casserole before, Wikipedia describes it as “a casserole mainly composed of egg noodles (or some other starch such as rice) and canned tuna fish, with canned peas and corn sometimes added,” and topped with something crunchy like potato chips.
