i'm attempting a cheesecake this year. not sure how it will turn out but it's the only paleo thing at my xmas party. my family NEVER cooks healthy so it's all eggplant parm, meatballs, ziti, ham, scalloped potatoes.

Aw I feel bad this has no answers yet. I don't see how most Christmas dishes aren't already paleo... a turkey is paleo, ham is paleo (providing the source for either is good), mashed yams are paleo, green beans are paleo, homemade cranberry sauce* is paleo... those are all my favorite dishes.

I feel like what you're actually asking is for the "paleo" substitution for things like: stuffing, cookies, cakes... is that maybe right? I don't really know what you're looking for but I might experiment with gluten-free (although probably not grain free) gingerbread tomorrow.

*Cranberry sauce is SUPER easy to make and tastes better fresh, I don't get why people bother with canned. Boil a bunch of cranberries in a cup or two of water until they start to burst, and then mix in some unsweetened applesauce for thickness and a little sweetness (or use fresh grated apple, peel on). Boil it down until it's thick, and yum! I also think a little orange zest does wonders for the flavor. You can add gelatin if it isn't thick enough.

So I will be the first to go on record as saying I am ANTI Paleo baking. It's just not for me.

But I drew the dessert straw this year (to much the dismay of my whole family) so I am on the hook. I've decided its better to try paleo baking than to bring over non-paleo cakes and cookies. Here are the two things I will be bringing...

And then I am going to try this one, but with raw maple syrup rather than brown sugar and homemade whipped cream with stevia (also I will probably add some figs for a bit of a more adult flavor profile): http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Cranberry-Stuffed-Apples

My Christmas dinner will actually be tomorrow as I will travel on the 24th/25th. We will have:

Creamed salt cod in piquillo peppers with parsley oil

Savoy cabbage rolls with porcini, cream sauce

Lamb shoulder on autumn vegetables, romesco sauce

Cheese and walnuts, figs, pears

A sinful Tarte Tatin with quince

Of course the dessert is decidedly un-paleo, as is the home-made bread I will serve.

A baked goose or duck (with apples). I wonder why everybody says we have to bake it with apples. Something about goose/duck fat?

SO GOOD!!!
