I am looking to make a meat loaf recipe that calls for ~1/2 cup crushed soda crackers as filler. I'm thinking of using a seasoned almond flour "breadcrumb" mixture in place of the soda crackers, but I am not sure of the ratio to use. Since this is... (more)
I've started the Whole30 last week and I haven't drank any milk, yogurt or even butter. But I'm using ghee. In the beggining, I tought it was the eggs that were causing the nauseas, that "vomit feeling' (I'm sorry if you have just pictured it).... (more)
If you want to continue using ghee, you could try using cultured ghee. Many people who are sensitive to regular ghee find they can handle the cultured stuff.
I have bought a proper chicken broth by Three Stone Hearth made of chicken carcasses, heads and feet. It is awesome, but I am trying to find some good recipes aside form just microwaving and drinking it, but all I can find is "how to make your... (more)
It's really chewy, and kind of gross, but it is fat... Should I eat it? Am I wasting a good source of fat by chopping off the grizzle on the edge of the meat?
If it is animal, you can eat it. If it is tough, get it into small enough pieces and then do as the Inuit (Stephanson, Fat of the Land) did- roll around in your mouth a few times for flavor and then just swallow it.
What is your favorite one?Bonus points for:1. Focus on quick-and-easy recipes that can be done under 10 minutes (not counting the time you need wait for the stuff to cook) and with 5-10 ingredients as opposed to two hours cooking sessions using 50... (more)

For most of my cooking, I use olive oil, butter, or coconut oil. On occasion we'll have some lard, but I'm not too experienced with it. Coconut oil seems to be a good choice for high temperature cooking because saturated fats are more stable... (more)

I'm hoping to make this topic a peaceful, interesting discussion. So supposedly we came from apes or gorillas right? Well, to me, gorillas and apes don't appear to be any more special than a polar bear, a deer, a shark, etc. Supposedly... (more)
I would like to know if the omega 3 ALA and omega 6 LA oils in vegetables, nuts and seeds are destroyed when cooked, and if so to what degree? I understand that refined sources of omega 3 should not be heated such as flax seed oil but I was... (more)
I like to cook Thai food at home but almost every recipe contains sugar. I usually omit sugar but that changes the salty-sour-spicy-sweet thai flavor to just salty-sour-spicy. Still good but not the same. If I was going to use a sweet... (more)
Lately when I cook steaks, I've been doing a mix of organic olive oil + grass-fed butter ghee + a little bit of water. I find this allows me to cook at a semi-higher temp without burning the meat or the olive oil. The thicker the steak or... (more)
Pre season the meat a few hours ahead with salt, put it closely under a very hot broiler and cook about a total of 7 minutes. I don't add any oils or butter. Hamburgers usually in a pan with some coconut oil to prevent sticking to pan.
I have a cookie recipe that calls for lard as the fat. It's a shortbread-style cookie. I'm still fairly new at paleo, so my question my or may not have an obvious answer. Instead of going out and purchasing lard or rendering my own from pork... (more)

In a recent attempt to isolate variables in my food preparation which are making me feel bad, I noticed a strong "rubber" taste in my food last night. (Background : Over the past few months of being Paleo, I have been feeling ill eating the... (more)
I'm a great cook, so taking any food and basing a recipe around it and making it taste good is no problem. I usually get alot of my vegetables from soups/stews. I'm just asking on you opinions on wether you like your soup to be cooked and blended... (more)
It depends. Sorrel soup (sorrel, potato, onions) and squash soup (squash), I prefer blended. Summer corn-tomato chowder (corn, tomato, and whatever is in the garden, usually zucchini, and onions) I prefer in pieces.
does anyone have any experience with the cuisinart 3 cup food processor? is it just a toy, or is it a good appliance worth buying? I want a food processor but don't have room in my kitchen for one, and also, i am cooking for just myself most of... (more)

Looking to switch from plastic to glass food storage containers to avoid. Are all the brands the same?? Is there a safer brand or all they all pretty safe as far as chemicals and toxins?
Heya Hacky folks! I get a meat share from a farmer at the market. We get beef, pork, and lamb, all cared for in pastured environments and considered "grass-fed." I love the pork and beef but I'm having a hard time eating the lamb. It just tastes... (more)
Hello. I am generally a very good cook with a gas stove. I can cook foods through to a very particular specified doneness, and they have very good texture. Recently, due to concerns over natural gas and carbon monoxide--improper fiters, no fan,... (more)
