Paleo Pressure Cooker Beef Stroganoff from Balancing Paleo

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – Before I review another recipe from Angie Alt’s Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook, I thought I’d blog this recipe I gave a try a few months ago while I knock a little more rust off my blogging wheels.  I had a real hankering for Beef Stroganoff and my internet search engine lead me to Paleo Beef Stroganoff from Balancing Paleo.  I was made this on a weeknight, so the pressure cooker usage was a real plus for me.  Without further ado, I grabbed my ingredients.    The recipe calls … Read more

Coffee and Balsamic Rubbed Roast Beef by Angie Alt

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – Can you believe that its already nearly October?  I can’t.  Time flies when you have way too much to do.  I’m sure many of you thought I’d never be back, but here I am.  I’m hoping the next few months will be more conducive to blogging.  Today is the first review that I’m doing from Angie Alt’s Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook. Recently (using the term very loosely at this point), she teamed up with Mickey Trescott at Autoimmune Paleo and she graciously gave me an e-book review copy … Read more

American Lamb Board meets Slow Cooker Lamb Curry

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – Back in October when I attended the AFBA Byte of Texas conference, the American Lamb Board had a table with all sorts of lamb information and a very knowledgeable representative, Tyler.  I’m no stranger to the the benefits of quality, sustainably grown, humanly raised meat but I had no idea of the fact that lamb was so far ahead of the curve than beef or really any other meat produced in the U.S. in those regards.  They had a sign up to win a leg of lamb, so of course I signed up.  Shortly af… Read more

The Paleo Review Ranch Dressing Blend

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – Happy New Year!  Can you believe that it’s already the end of January?  I can’t.  Today’s post is a seasoning blend that I’ve been playing around with for almost a year.  Yes, a year.  I meant to get this posted a long time ago, but slowly it turned into a mountain of a post in my mind.  I have to remind myself that none of you know the plans I make in my mind and y’all won’t miss a thing so long as the post provides some good information.  So here we go up the Paleo Ranch… Read more

The Paleo Approach Cookbook by Sarah Ballantyne, PhD

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – I was so excited to have received a review copy of Sarah Ballantyne’s The Paleo Approach Cookbook.  This 400+ page cookbook very well may be the bible of AIP cooking.  The first hundred pages are filled with information regarding what foods are included in autoimmune protocol cooking, cooking methods, food storage, tools, meal plans and shopping lists.  Amazing. Following that are hundreds of pages of recipes that are cataloged in the table of contents and a lovely pictorial recipe index. &nb… Read more

Apple Chicken Sausage from The Paleo Approach Cookbook

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – The last recipe I’m going to review from Sarah Ballantyne’s The Paleo Approach Cookbook before doing my summary book review is her Apple Chicken Sausage.  Breakfast anyone?  The Paleo Approach has quite a selection of sausage recipes.  Sarah gives great instructions for not only making the sausage but also how to make links.  If anything, the book is worth purchasing to see the picture of Sarah making sausage links.  One day, when I have time and am feeling adventurous, I’ll make li… Read more

Sweet Potato Linguine with Bolognese Sauce from The Paleo Approach Cookbook

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!  While all the other food blogs in the world are treating you with ways to make your Thanksgiving dinner that much better, I will offer something entirely different! Rebel!  This week, I’ll get back to the Paleo Approach Cookbook.  I must admit that it was the pretty picture of this recipe for Sarah Ballantyne’s Sweet Potato Linguine with Bolognese Sauce that made my decision to give it a try.  As I am just one person, I decided to make a half batch.  W… Read more

Paleo Argentinian Appetizers with Chef Carlos Crusco

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – In October, I had the opportunity to go to a wine tasting at The Austin Winery through the Austin Food Blogger Alliance.  As much as I wanted to sip some local wine, I was even more excited about the promise of Argentinian Tapas by Chef Carlos Crusco.  Two of the tapas impressed me and seemed to be ones that could easily be made paleo.  The first was Chef Crusco’s Coulotte Crostini.  While at the happy hour, I simply discarded the crostini.  The meat, as you can tell by the name was… Read more

Green Tea and Garlic Pickles from The Paleo Approach

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – While looking through Sarah Ballantyne’s The Paleo Approach Cookbook, I decided it was high time to put my fears of fermenting aside.  Her Green Tea & Garlic Pickles seemed like a good fermenting gateway recipe.  Heck, if I can conquer kombucha, I can do this, and so can you.  I gathered my ingredients and go to work.  I started by preparing the brining liquid which is essentially salty tea.  My electric tea kettle has a green tea setting, so I filled it up and pushed the button… Read more

The Paleo Mom Roasted Radishes

The Paleo Review
The Paleo Review – Sometimes, recipes in cookbooks don’t have to be difficult or involved to bring a big flavor punch and new variety to your regular menu.  This week’s recipe review from Sarah Ballantyne’s The Paleo Approach Cookbook is just one of those recipes.  I’ve always limited radishes to salads and vegetable trays.  Roasting them never crossed my mind, until now.  Shame on me! Because this recipe is so simple, I’m going to be very vague as Sarah has not posted her recipe online. I was extra e… Read more
