Moroccan Spiced Paleo Chicken Noodle Soup

Paleo Moroccan Chicken Noodle Soup

My go-to chicken soup has, for quite some time, been the Thai Chicken Soup on this site. I love how it’s creamy and comforting, with just a touch of heat – if I’ve got a cold, or I’m just feeling a little run down, it’s the perfect pick me up. It keeps so well in […]

Slow Cooker Pork Shanks

Pork Shanks

First of all, what on earth are pork shanks? The pork shank is a cross section of the leg bone taken from below the knee: they’re kind of the short rib of the pastured pork world! I first came across this cut called “Pork Wings” at a restaurant which served them BBQ-style, with the bone […]

Then I moved on to the fine art of inadvertently frying the contents of a stir fry mix that […]

Chunky Cioppino

Ciopiiiiiiiiiiino. That’s how we have to pronounce it around here. Preferably in an accent similar to that of Mario and Luigi. Because it’s fun. And I can’t really do any other kind of “Italian” accent. Although I admit I have no idea how to make “chunky Cioppino” sound even vaguely Italian. This is the dish […]

Hearty Beef and Mushroom Soup

I love me a good broth-based soup but the Mr has always been a sucker for those thicker, creamier, all around […]
