Harvest Chicken Apple Stew

Oct 7, 2012 by

I’m sitting here in the quiet house on a sunny, brisk Sunday afternoon. There’s a fire crackling under the big screen TV with football on. The house smells like the chicken soup simmering on the stove. Most of the chores are done for the weekend, the kids are outside riding bikes while Mike saws something with some loud appliance....

Paleo Pumpkin Beef Stew with Acorn Squash and Cran...

Oct 26, 2011 by

Well the title pretty much sums this all up.  I make soups and stews a lot, and often I make what we call “schtoups” – a hybrid somewhere between a super thick stew and a thin, brothy soup.

I have a few things in queue to post but since the weekend is coming up and it’s cold in most places, I figured you guys might like an easy crockpot recipe. I made this one before but it was before I went grain-gluten-free and now my whole approach to stews and thickening agents has changed — for the better I think, since I tend to...

Pumkin Cauliflower Soup

Oct 11, 2010 by

This is one of a series of recipes I’m moving over here from my pre-primal (now defunct) cooking site before the hosting runs out so they may seem a bit dated. I’ll be making adjustments or edits in order to keep the recipe primal (for instance, in this case, all I had to do was eliminate the croutons)So, hold on to your RSS feeds;...
