AIP Chicken Saltimbocca

When I first started on AIP I used to get so frustrated when I would watch the Food Network…so many things I could no longer have.  I won’t lie…I pouted for a while.  But then, as I started easing in to it, I became inspired.  Shows like Iron Chef, Beat Bobby Flay, even Guy’s Grocery…

AIP Smoked Whole Chicken

In preparation for Thanksgiving I thought I would test out smoking a whole chicken before trying a huge turkey and possibly ruining the holiday.  Smoking this chicken was a total success!  My kids loved it.  The only negative…was that I should have smoked two of them, as there were ZERO leftovers! Super easy smoked chicken,…

AIP Orange Chicken

I’ve gone and done it now!  I’ve somehow managed to convince my 14 year old that AIP is awesome!  How you ask?  Orange chicken.  It’s one of those binge worthy teenage foods and I’m glad I made a triple batch of this because this kid went back for 4 helpings, and then licked his bowl!…

AIP watermelon popsicles

When it gets hot here in sunny Arizona, normally the kids are looking to do just about anything to stay cool.  I’m looking for just about anything to keep them away from the TV and having fun without spending bank.  This recipe just so happened to come out of one of those days.  Kyra had…

AIP Instapot whole roasted chicken

I love cheating the system!  Cooking on the cheap is my jam.  I picked up a few whole chickens when they were on sale for about $6 each…I was ecstatic!  But, given that it is currently 108 outside, slow roasting a chicken just really isn’t an option right now.  BRING ON THE INSTAPOT!  I was…

AIP Bone broth gravy

I love me some gravy.  It screams comfort food!  This recipe is quick and really easy!  I used duck fat as my fat base and if you haven’t tried it yet, you MUST.  It gives such a rich flavor profile. The amount of seasoning you will need will honestly depend on the beginning flavor of…

AIP Instapot Meatball Stroganoff

Beef stroganoff is about one of my all time favorite meals.  It was what I used to ask my mom to make for my birthday dinner, nearly every year.  Creamy, mushroom-y, noodle-y goodness.  Well, fast forward and, I was trying to come up with something that brought me back to those flavors…but, doing it in…

AIP bacon wrapped stuffed chicken

If you’re looking for something to make your skeptic non-AIP friends and family-THIS is a great one.  It may seem a bit labor intensive, but, if you already have the chimichurri sauce made and the horseradish prepared, it comes together pretty quickly. My kids all devoured this and they had no idea they were eating…

Easy prepared horseradish

I feel like this is almost too easy to type up, but, sometimes it’s nice to have it written up to share with new peeps that are still learning.  This is a great base to a ton of different sauces, marinades and fillings. Once prepared, this will store in the fridge for about a month,…

AIP Chimichurri

I love sauces and marinades, especially when they’re easy!  This one uses Kale, so, it’s just one more way I’m sneaking in nutrient rich foods into my kids’ diet.  #winning! So far, I’ve used this inside stuffed chicken, over a breakfast hash and later today, I plan on thinning some out with some more EVOO…

Crispy Pan Fried Chicken AIP

I mean, fried chicken…what’s not to love?  Fried chicken is one of those staple comfort foods, but, it can go from perfect to dry quickly.  By starting in a cast iron and finishing in the oven, it is the most sure fire way to make sure that it’s not only tasty, but, juicy! Another thing I…

This one just gets me in the feelers, it’s quick, easy, family friendly and toddler approved.

AIP ‘tater’ tots

Want to impress your kids?  Make these AIP ‘tater’ tots…but, I challenge you to not eat them all yourself.  I had some leftover chimichurri sauce that the kids and I dipped these in, it was amazing.

Easy Green Chili Verde Sauce

As I mention in the recipe portion…no, this isn’t AIP compliant. During the strict elimination phase, tomatillos, jalapenos and serranos all being nightshades are a no no.  However, if you have reintroduced, or you are following more Paleo/Whole30, then, this is so wonderful and simple.  Plus, as an added bonus, it doesn’t contain all the…

AIP crispy salmon cake

I have been experimenting with trying to make the perfect salmon cake for a while now…pre-AIP, I loved them!  But, without eggs and bread crumbs…alas, I was constantly disappointed.  Until now!  These are very crispy and creamy.  Don’t let the ugly photo fool you…I seasoned mine with sumac, which if you’re not familiar, tastes like…

Call it ice cream, call it sherbet, call it whatever you want, but, consider this one a keeper!  Its light, refreshing and was a huge hit at our 4th of July celebration-where most of our guests were non AIP.  Again, I am sorry for the terrible photo…but, all of us over here that are dairy…

I was a bit skeptical about this one…but, it came together really fast, and had great flavors.  I had some leftover cooked bacon that I garnished it with, and I mean, who doesn’t love bacon?!  The white truffle oil is optional, my children definitely don’t appreciate it’s cost, but, it was amazing and decadent with…

Bacon Jam!  What’s not to love about that?  I love this because it keeps for a while in the fridge, and freezes really well.  You can use it as a dressing, or topping, or even a dip.  Sorry for the bad photo, but, it was the only photo I could get before we devoured it!…

AIP crispy honey and citrus glaze chicken wings

There’s nothing more American than eating wings and watching football!  Given that football season is quickly approaching (GO HAWKS), this is a good one to keep on hand. I typically make this glaze up in very large batches, as, not only is it super simple, but, it makes an amazing dressing, marinade, or sauce topping. …

AIP beef tenderloin

Rich, tender, juicy and oh so elegant!  This is a family favorite around here when we get the chance to have such a fancy cut of beef (watch those sales!).  A good rule of thumb is to cook  your tenderloin for about 12-14 minutes per pound, if you're wanting rare (that 125 degree internal temp) or…

I’m not sure what to call these, because there’s so much you can do here…it’s sweet bread, it’s a crust, it’s a breakfast tostone…you can call it whatever you want, but, it’s delicious! I made these kind of by mistake yesterday.  My hubby knows how excited I get when our grocery store gets a new…

AIP Garlic Lemon Shrimp

We are a shrimp loving family, even my younger kiddos (ok, not the 2 year old...she's still a jerk right now) have to fight for some of these, so, I usually end up doubling this.  It makes for a great appetizer, on top of a salad, in a taco, on a flip flop...whatever.

I love sauerkraut, and it’s so good for you, so, if you like sauerkraut, this is the dish for you!  The leftovers are outstanding (if you have any)!  But, this recipe is for a large group…or large family like mine who has her parents visiting, so, adjust accordingly if you’re not feeding an army. This…

AIP White Truffle Aioli

This is great for a spread on hamburgers, roasts, or mixing in when making a fancy slaw.  If you can find already made compliant coconut yogurt, like, CoYo, this comes together super fast. I made this on a whim to go with my hamburger patty and it made my belly so happy!

AIP batch made large tostones

I saw someone make a video on how to batch cook tostones, so this is NOT my idea, but it IS genius, so it must be shared.  If I can find the name of the person that shared this, I will definitely give them the credit! Earlier, I shared step by step photos and a…
