This traditional Danish shrimp salad is such a simple dish to make, and yet it is so delicious. The best shrimp are the tiny North Atlantic shrimp or Maine shrimp. Their delicate flavor doesn’t require much but a squeeze of lemon and a dollop of mayonnaise. […]
Salad is an essential part of every meal, but let’s face it, it does get a little boring sometimes. I’m always looking for ways to make it little more exciting. I start with the basic, what kind of greens? Then I look for color. And whatever may be seasonal. Finally, I choose some fun crunchy toppings to complete it.

This paleo New England Clam Chowder is a gluten-free, dairy-free, healthier version of the traditional soup. When my husband and I first met, we experienced one of the coldest winters on record in Washington, DC. We had the romantic idea of going to New York City […]
This paleo chicken cacciatore is a gluten-free, version of the Italian ‘hunter’s stew.’ It should be naturally gluten-free, but these days people put all kinds of things in their stews to thicken it up.

And with the curry’s turmeric and ginger, paired with homemade chicken broth, you have a recipe for healing that also tastes oh so good.
I usually cook extra sausage on a prior evening so that I just have to chop it up for this recipe.
Many people with autoimmune issues find that white potatoes can cause inflammation, but this celeriac mash is a tasty substitute, which also happens to be low-carb. Sadly for the celery root (also called celeriac), it is not a very pretty vegetable, which may scare some […]
