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…

Super easy smoked 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!…

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…

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…

Most of you know my love for soup, if you don’t, just know-it’s one of my love languages (tacos are another).  While lobster bisque isn’t necessarily a budget friendly recipe, it is one of those recipes that will wow even your non-AIP friends and family.  It’s rich, creamy and oh so delicious.  We paired it…
