Paleo Chicken Cacciatore
An Italian classic made paleo! Even the word “cacciatore” is very primal. It means “hunter” in Italian. Chicken cacciatore basically tells you it’s paleo right in the title. How could you go wrong? This meal is delicious enough to eat on its own, but you may also serve it with spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles. It tastes like you spent all day in the kitchen.

Paleo Swedish Meatballs
After a couple of thunder and hail storms, it has finally cooled off here. We escaped to Rocky Mountain National Park on Saturday, and I found myself wishing for a sweater and a mug of hot coffee. We were lucky enough to get up close and personal with an Elk! There are pictures at the bottom of this post but for now, these cooler temperatures mean that I am finally in the mood to talk about warm food again! As promised, this post is about Paleo Swedish Meatballs. When you Google the origins of Swedish Meatballs, you don't find much in the way of answers. What you do find is a lot of people talking about IKEA, and how they've discovered the furniture store's famous recipe. In truth, I've never stepped foot into an IKEA, and so when I hear this I furrow my brow and wonder how a furniture store ended up so famous for beef and gravy. Anyone with me? Since I haven't been to IKEA, I guess I can't really judge. My own memories of Swedish Meatballs don't make much more sense anyways (they include a lot of Costco and have nothing to do with Sweden). This is why I found myself searching for answers. Why are they Swedish? While I consider myself a perfectly competent search-engine-maneuverer, I can't say I came back with many answers. It does seem that in some parts of Sweden, some meatballs are served in gravy. Unlike French Fries, maybe Swedish Meatballs do have an origin-appropriate name. I never really got to the bottom of the issue, because at that point I just gave in and decided it was time to eat. Maybe that's what French Fries and Swedish Meatballs have in common: they're just too dang delicious for anyone to really care what they're named. Serve them over a pile of mash potatoes or on toothpicks as an appetizer. Swedish or not, there's something about gravy that just hits the spot.

Herb Roasted Parsnip Fries
Roasted parsnip fries are one of my go-to quick side dishes. They are tasty, nutritious and fun to eat like French fries. They get a nice crispiness on the outside and still a little soft on the inside. It pairs great with burgers, chicken tenders, pulled pork etc.

Lemon Curd from Make It Paleo 2
Lemon curd is one of my favorite sweet treats. That’s why it found its way between the layers of our wedding cake, and it was perfect for a hot August wedding. Lemon curd adds a fresh, sweet, and tangy flavor to baked goods. It’s fantastic piped into cupcakes or simply drizzled over fresh berries.

Harvest Mule (Make it Paleo 2 preview recipe)
Having a Moscow Mule says ‘summertime’ to me. This particular drink was popular during the 1950s and has experienced a resurgence in recent years. Like many others, I love the refreshing combination of ginger beer and lime juice. If you want to experiment with our Ginger Beer recipe (pg 288 in our new book, Make It Paleo 2 - available for preorder now on Amazon), this is a great way to fully test it out when the book arrives. My favorite vodka brand to use is Three Hunters Vodka, a Paleo-friendly version of the spirit distilled from grapes and blueberries.
