Harvest Duck Soup | Enjoying this Journey...

Harvest Duck Soup

A co-worker recently gifted us with seven freshly hunted ducks. While I’ve cooked duck a few times before, we’ve not yet had the full prepping/de-feathering experience. A mess was made. Luv helped The Mister and Bugsy curiously watched. I helped where ever I could and went to town, cleaning the kitchen afterward. With plenty of duck to experiment with I… Read more →

Tongue & Plantain Soup | Enjoying this Journey...

Tongue & Plantain Soup

This soup is inspired by Luv and her unquenchable curiosity and desire to learn. See, we’re no stranger to tongue or plantains. She and I were talking about different meals commonly made with those ingredients. And she broke out a little Spanish (show off 😉). sopa de plátano So I asked if she knew there was also a tongue soup,… Read more →

Camp Food: Veggie Soup | Enjoying this Journey...

Camp Food: Veggie Soup

We went camping over Labor Day weekend and The Mister and I keep talking about how much we loved it. This was (despite forgetting a few things) one of the best trips to date. We hiked, we saw horses, we visited the fairy garden, we chased after Bugsy… Of course, after a full day, our appreciation for real food is… Read more →

Mushroom Onion and Beef Soup

Mushroom, Onion, and Beef Soup

I was prepping some ingredients in the kitchen recently, almost laughing at myself. Years ago, if you were to say I’d be making a mushroom soup for myself to eat {not just the fam}, I’d say you had lost your ever loving mind. But there I was. Lovingly wiping and slicing portabello mushrooms for soup. Read more →

Hearty Beef Soup | Enjoying this Journey...

Hearty Beef Soup

Several weeks ago I foraged around for ingredients, laid them all out on the cutting board, and thought a while. *willing the inspiration to come* It was an abnormally chillier day than we had been having so I decided on soup. Branching out from my usual soups, I decided to make a truly “hearty” soup. Yep! Using beef heart. Read more →

Tarragon Beef Stew

Tarragon Beef Stew

Because of its anise-like flavor, tarragon works well with many meals. I love to add fresh tarragon to salad dressings, tarragon takes center stage in French sauces like the classic Béarnaise sauce, and it’s delicious with chicken and fish. Surprisingly, tarragon also works wonderfully with beef. So when I noticed I was down to my final stew meat pack from… Read more →

AIP Leftover Turkey Recipes

It’s safe to assume if you are celebrating Thanksgiving next week you’ll end up with copious amounts of leftover turkey. That’s not a bad thing in my book! In fact, my family has been eating turkey for the past several weeks simply because The Mister did the math and found it to be more cost effective than our usual chicken… Read more →

Kabocha Squash Soup

I don’t like prepping squash for soup. Peeling, removing the seeds, and chopping – it’s tedious. Not to mention the fact that my hands react horribly to the sap from the squash once it is cut. True story. I wear gloves everytime I handle squash in any form. So when I grabbed one of the lovely kabocha squash patiently waiting… Read more →

Apple Butternut Curry Soup | Enjoying this Journey...

Apple Butternut Curry Soup

Many many years ago, I would make a real deal curry version of this soup once autumnal months came around. Since the elimination stage of the paleo autoimmune protocol (outlined in The Paleo Approach) does not include the typical curry spice elements (read: nightshade- or seed-based spices); I worked with what I could to make it hit the same bells… Read more →
