Garden Veggie Meat Muffins

Yeah, I know. I just called something a meat muffin. The 12-year old boy that lives deep within us all is dying inside, believe me. Just as he is at CrossFit when we talk about perfecting our snatch, or making sure we clean it well before we jerk it. Oh, maturity, you’re so overrated. I […] SOURCE: Life As A Plate - Read entire story here. Read more

Sous Vide Flat Iron Steak

Image img_0857.jpg

Since then I’ve been enjoying this new technique as a unique way to cook food, especially lean meats, with precise results.

I own and enjoy this Oliso SmartHub sous vide oven, which doubles as an Read more

Weeknight Gluten-Free Spaghetti Bolognese

Image img_57431.jpg

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with the idea of making meals that give me a distinct sense of accomplishment in the shortest amount of time. Part of that comes from having the new baby in the house, as I’ve resumed full dinner-making duties, but maintaining my typical busy workdays (for a while there, my wife was taking the brunt of dinner duty, using my cookbooks and this blog as a reference). Sure, I could grab a jar of tomato sauce Read more

Why You Should Opt for Grass-Fed Beef

; A fan of The Paleo Diet lifestyle recently sent our team the following question: Where can I find research that will show how the properties of grain accumulate in the beef that we eat, that has been feed grains and soy?

Saturday afternoon the kids and I hit "the wall" figuratively speaking, the week caught up to us. We all had been going, going, going, and staying up way too late for multiple reasons. I let them watch as much TV as they wanted the rest of the day. Since we don't have cable, it was mostly just college football… and they watched it!The night before, I had asian pork belly tostadas for dinner with my mom and my sister after our annual tradition of Read more

Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Easy Gravy

Image IMG_8615.jpg

One thing I absolutely hate is waking up to the smell of cooked meat in the morning. Sure, I don’t mind making meat in the morning and eating it right then, but that smell of slow cooked food at 6 in the morning makes me sick to my stomach. But the thing about blogging is you have to figure out the right time to take pictures. So if I would have made this in the morning, I would have to wait all day and then get the pictures done quickly Read more
