Product Review: Looseleaf by Chef’n

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – Soon after Amazon.com suggested the Stalkchop and I put that in my shopping cart, it suggested the Looseleaf -a tool to make prepping kale and greens easier.  I actually bough these in the same order as the Stalkchop was an add-on item and I needed to buy enough to get that shipped – I’m on to you Amazon, really.  There are certain vegetable prep things I really dislike doing and separating the thick hard stalks from greens is one of them.  I usually strip them with my fingers.  It gives… Read more

Product Review: Stalkchop by Chef’n

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – I love kitchen gadgets.  My small kitchen has limited my ability to indulge my desire to buy all kitchen gadgets I lay my eyes upon, but every once and I while I decide to live a little and buy something new.  Amazon.com recently suggested, in the creepy way that it does, two different gadgets both made by Chef’n.  The first was the Stalkchop which is a device specifically made to make the process of turning a head of cauliflower into neat florets easier and cleaner.  One of my bigg… Read more

Instant Pot Chicken Tikka Masala

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – The Paleo community puts a strong emphasis on taking care of oneself through sleep and rest.  As it has become more and more challenging for me to get through the demands of my day job and take care of my home and the paleo kitties, well, I have sought to become as efficient as possible at doing the things that have to be done.  Cooking has to be done.  I bought an Instant Pot a while back and for months it sat in my closet as I used it once for broth making and I just wasn’t as happy as I ty… Read more

Chicken with Mushrooms by Martha Stewart

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – Do you make New Year’s Resolutions?  I don’t, which is a good thing, or I’d have completely failed a likely resolution of being a better blogger this year.  Wow, nine months of the year have flown by. Work has been keeping me really busy and I find myself wondering when I’ll find time to cook much less write about my cooking.  I’ve been focusing on finding recipes that I consider weeknight dinners in that they can be made in 30 minutes or less and recipes that I can make in my instant pot whi… Read more

Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook by Angie Alt

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – It seems like just yesterday that I started to cook some recipes from Angie Alt’s Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook, but it was actually September.  Angie graciously provided me with an electronic copy of her cookbook for review and I have since bought the paperback copy myself as penance for being so slow to review the book. I’ve now cooked four recipes from the book and I do believe I’m ready to do my summary post.  I’d thought about doing one more recipe, but I thought this would be a nice w… Read more

Presto Percolator Product Review & TPR Coffee Mug Giveaway

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – A little over a year ago, if you asked my friends and coworkers if I liked coffee, the answer would be a resounding yes and my brewer of choice was a Keurig.  I had Keurig machine and home and at work.  As I started to examine my use of plastics in the kitchen, I couldn’t ignore that my Keurig and really any automatic drip machine suffer from the same problem, hot water and plastic.  It seemed silly to get rid of all my plastic kitchen storage but then continue to use the Keurig machines, so … Read more

Paleo Snack Round Up

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – Howdy!  I’ve had this post in draft form for ages!  At this past PaleoFX, I was given yet another snack to review, so I decided it was high time to put this post out there.  When I started drafting this post, it seemed there weren’t many options out there for paleo snacks, but that’s certainly not the case any longer.  In fact, I have so many snacks to include in this post, I’ve been putting it off like one of those to do lists that’s gotten too long.  Ok, let’s do th… Read more

Mustard Chicken Wings by Angie Alt

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – Every once in a while I crave chicken wings.  I can’t explain it, but I do.  I was glad to see this Mustard Chicken Wing recipe in Angie Alt’s Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook.  I believe I’ve mentioned this before, but Angie blogs with Mickey Trescott at Autoimmune Paleo.  I still had some great wings from Tendergrass Farms, so when that mood hit, I knew what to do. I gathered my ingredients.  The first step is to boil the chicken wings.  I was in such a craze to get these… Read more

Lemony Roasted Brussels Sprouts from Angie Alt

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – Happy Halloween, everyone!  I can think of no better way to celebrate than to review another recipe from Angie Alt’s Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook for Lemony Roasted Brussels Sprouts. This is the third recipe that I’ve reviewed from this cookbook and I realized that I’ve said next to nothing about the fact that all of these recipes are AIP complaint.  I believe the reason being is that they are tasty recipes for anyone following a paleo template.  The AIP complaint aspect is just a bonus as… Read more

Bacon & Artichoke Stuffed Pork Chops by Angie Alt

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – Whenever I get a new paleo cookbook, it seems that I am always attracted to stuffed meat recipes.  Of course, this meant I had no choice but to give Angie Alt’s Bacon and Artichoke Stuffed Pork Chops from her book, the Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook  a try.  Even without the stuffed factor, bacon and artichoke with pork chops sounds heavenly to me.  I grabbed my ingredients, turned my oven on to pre-heat, and got to work one weekend morning.  Yes, morning.I started by slicing … Read more
