Last week, I shared a couple of my recent favorite cookbooks. This week, I’m cooking from another brand spanking new one.
And I love it.
Eat Like A Dinosaur by the Paleo Parents is a fabulour resource for anyone attempting to “paleo-ize” their kids and turn them toward a grain free, whole foods based diet. I’ll try to get up an actual review later this week, but it gets 4 big thumbs up from our family.
We’ve made three recipes so far…
the kale, bacon and black olive egg pie (p. 74) with the almond crust (p. 207). It was excellent – even if I think I went with a bit deeper pie crust and even after baking for an hour had to resort to the microwave to get rid of the runny egg (I have some serious issues with eggs that run…or move… or glisten). It’s a great combination of flavors, and something we’re going to play with more.
We also just finished up a batch of the teriyaki beef jerky (p. 157).
Really good…but…we didn’t get any sense of teriyaki from it. With the spice profile, it’s actually more reminiscent of Indian flavors to me. Whatever we call, it’s good.
It’s going to a busy week (birthday and Little League), but I’ve got lots more recipes planned from Eat Like A Dinosaur…
ZuCakes (p. 223)
Chocolate Chip Cookies (p. 190 – so excited about these!)
Chocolate Avocado Shake (p. 192)
Anytime Cookies (maybe – p. 170)
Chicken Nuggets (p. 81)
Zucchini Latkes (p. 112)
Balsamic and Onion Pot Roast
Kale sauteed with bacon
Mashed Potatoes (for the kids)
50/50 burgers (p. 50)
Sweet Potato Fries
Shakey Pork BBQ (p. 53) with Texas BBQ Sauce (p. 145)
Apple Bacon Slaw (p. 128)
Rat on a Stick (p. 99 – I’m going to have to come up with a different name. I’d considered doing meat balls…but I don’t think Rat Balls are all too appetizing either)
Cauliflower Rice (using the method in Eat Like A Dinosaur)
Freezer Waffles (p. 230)
Mom’s Night Off/Leftovers
I’ll share pictures of some of these meals later in the week.
And while I don’t have any artichoke recipes to share for the Gluten-Free Menu Swap this week, I’ll definitely be checking what everyone else does. I love a good artichoke simply steamed, but something new is always nice.
