Gulf Coast Cioppino

Gulf Coast Cioppino

I’ve been fortunate to give paleo demos at our local Whole Foods Market in Lafayette a few times over the last couple of months. And today’s recipe is the next one I’ll be demonstrating. This time around we’re having it in the wine bar, so attendees will be able to enjoy a lovely beverage while I […]

Eggs Sardou

New Orleans Eggs Sardou Gone Paleo

In The Big Easy brunch is not just a weekend thing. Countless restaurants serve brunch favorites every day. New Orleans Eggs Sardou are a popular mainstay on menus, and it’s great. Invented at Antoine’s in honor of Victorien Sardou, a French playwright who wrote several plays for Sarah Bernhardt and visited New Orleans, Eggs Sardou […]

BBQ Chicken with Sugar Snap Peas and Quick Roasted Beets

Quick and Easy Barbecue Chicken

When winter comes around, I like to be reminded that spring is not far away, and then summer will be here. Sitting on the deck enjoying the rich, green forest all around us, Harris firing up the grill to cook something wonderful to eat, it makes me want to bring some of that feeling to […]

Lemon Butter Steak and Mashed Faux-tatoes

Lemon Butter Steak and Mashed Faux-tatoes

Last week Harris was teaching in Houston. Because it’s a location he can drive to, I often go along for the ride. It used to be that these trips were an every-five-weeks occurrence, but lately Harris’s trips have been an airplane’s ride or two away: Bogota, Edmonton, San Antonio. Most people would look forward to […]

Astoria, NY

Vacation in Astoria

This post doesn’t feature a recipe, but there’s a lot of food talk and recommendations. I visited my darling daughter Allison and her charming fiancé Michael on vacation in Astoria, New York last week. Among the busy and exciting visits to legendary shops and attractions, we nourished ourselves with many amazing foods. I wanted a […]

Paleo Apple Crisp

Paleo Football Food

Did I get you with the apple crisp? It’s just as delicious as it looks. Think it might be just the thing for Thanksgiving. And the next get together at the Quebs (my in-laws). The ultimate compliment (I think?) was Harris’s comment, “This isn’t paleo, is it?” Why, yes. Yes, it is! Too good to […]

Paleo Singapore Noodles

Paleo Singapore Noodles

Last week we were visiting family on Cape Cod and enjoyed all manner of delicious local seafood and summer vegetables. My Mom’s tomatoes were stellar and her lobster corn chowder to die for! By the end of week, I thought it would be fun after a day trip to leave the cooking to a neighborhood […]

Shrimp and Okra Gumbo

Shrimp and Okra Gumbo

  Okra is delicious and doesn’t have to be slimy! We had a whole summer of okra abundance, cooking it up at least twice a week in different guises. Harris always plants okra, but until we got married, I never cooked or ate much of this vegetable. Like most okra-shy people, even the idea of slime […]

Salade Niçoise

Salade Niçoise

Once on a 10-day trip to France, I became enamored of Salade Niçoise. Nearly every day for lunch as we toured the wine regions, I would find this delectable entrée in nearly every auberge or bistro we visited. There’s something about the combination of tuna and potatoes, vegetables, egg and and anchovy that I love. […]

Paleo Chili Dog

Paleo Chili Dogs

Sometimes Harris wants “fun” food: the stuff from the bad old days of processed edibles with ingredient lists only a chem major can understand. Chili dogs fall into that category. I’m not a hard liner when it comes to his choices. As he’s been known to remark to control-freaky friends in the midst of a […]

Chicken Sauce Piquant

Chicken Sauce Piquant

Ask a Southern cook how to prepare a legendary dish like gumbo or shrimp and grits, and you will get as many answers as there are cooks. Each will explain why certain ingredients or methods are necessary or why it isn’t authentic if they are. Normally chicken sauce piquant is a long-simmered dish with lots of sauce […]

Creamy Chicken Salad - Hold the Mayo

Creamy Chicken Salad — Hold the Mayo!

When it’s hot outside, reaching into the fridge for a chilled salad is about as good as it gets for summertime eating. And this salad is make-ahead friendly with lots of interesting flavors and textures: tender chicken, crisp celery and apples, crunchy almonds, sweet/tart cranberries and a creamy, no-mayo dressing bright with curry, lime, honey and a kick […]

Srriracha Honey Stpareribs

Honey Sriracha Spareribs and Sneaky Coleslaw

My Saturday morning routine includes visits to two great Lafayette farmers markets. First I go to the Oil Center to the Lafayette Hub City Market for milk and cream from Hill Crest Creamery, and vegetables, eggs, beef, and chicken from the Market Basket,  Gotreaux Family Farms, and Brookshire Farm. I can buy many of my weekly staples here. It’s […]
