Tequila Carnitas

Tequila Carnitas

I’m going to start off by just saying this recipe blew my socks off.   The combinations of slow cooked pork, spices and tequila had me fighting off Mr. Bejelly so I could get thirds.  Yes. Thirds. It’s so good that I’m happy that I can share this gem of a recipe from my friend […]

AIP Pizza Crust + Mediterranean Paleo Cooking

Pizza. I don’t know a single person who does not love it and I know for those on the Paleo Autoimmune diet, it has to be tough to give it up.  Well, think again. When flipping through the pages of Mediterranean Paleo Cooking by Caitlin Weeks, Nabil Boumrar, and Diane Sanfilipio,  I was seriously impressed by […]

  On Friday Mr. Bejelly and I celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary by buying a chicken tractor and getting three hens.  I was ecstatic.  I know.

Rolled Pork Roast


Every year, for the last 17 years,  I have wanted to do something different on Thanksgiving but my family and friends were not going to have the day without turkey.  Don’t get me wrong, I love turkey,  but I want to change it up.  I grew up eating lumpia, pancit, potato salad and mess of […]

Pizza Casserole


I can remember clearly the first time I had deep dish pizza.  I thought I had died and gone to heaven and it was with tears I bid goodbye to it when I gave up all grains.  Now, you know I eat dairy and some Paleo kids out there don’t but I can not have […]

Pork Tocino Recipe


  Growing up we called this dish sweet meat and I had no idea that it was called Pork Tocino until a reader asked if I would share my family recipe.  I also learned that this dish is normally served for breakfast with garlic  rice.   This was always made for dinner when I was a kid […]
