Super Easy Butternut Squash with Ground Beef and Onions

Super Easy Butternut Squash with Ground Beef and Onions

Super Easy Butternut Squash with Ground Beef and Onions (Serves 1) Susan W, a chef in Portland, Oregon, who is active on the Whole30 forum recommends cooking spaghetti squash in a slow cooker 4 hours and then slicing it open and scraping out the “spaghetti.” Her tip worked so well, I decided to try it with butternut squash too. Sure enough, butternut squash cooks to a nice consistency in 4 hours and then is super easy to cut in...

Ground Beef, Tomatoes, and Onions with Zucchini Noodles

Ground Beef, Tomatoes, and Onions with Zucchini Noodles (Serves 1) I ran out of paprika recently, so went to Whole Foods and went crazy buying paprika mixtures. The Tagine seasoning was inspired by the tastes of Morocco and includes paprika, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, crushed red chili pepper, black pepper, and cardamom.

Scrambled Eggs with Cold Sauerkraut

Scrambled Eggs with Cold Sauerkraut (Serves 1) I tend to eat the same meal for breakfast every day for a few months and then all of a sudden want something new. This past week I stopped eating boiled eggs with store bought salsa and started eating scrambled eggs with cold Bubbie’s sauerkraut. I’ve been eating this meal for a week now and the only change I’ve made is to add Cholula hot sauce on the eggs. You might not want...

Ground Pork with Chopped Onions and Turnips

Ground Pork with Chopped Onions and Turnips (Serves 1) Turnips and turnip greens have been coming home with me from the farm lately. I had ground pork with chopped onions and turnip greens for lunch and then made ground pork with chopped onions and turnips for supper. Both meals were really good. I have been buying plain ground pork and adding my own spices. I think the key to good taste is adding spices generously. No timid shake or two of...

Rabbit Livers with Onions and Dried Cranberries over Wilted Greens and Yellow Bell Pepper

Rabbit Livers with Onions and Dried Cranberries over Wilted Greens and Yellow Bell Pepper (Serves 1-2) Rabbit liver is the best food you have never had.

My friend Phil Busman raises rabbits, chickens, and sheep. He often gives me chicken gizzards, hearts, and...

Ribeye Steak with Artichoke Hearts, Fire-Roasted Tomatoes, and Chopped Onions

Ribeye Steak with Artichoke Hearts, Fire-Roasted Tomatoes, and Chopped Onions (Serves 2) The meat case at Whole Foods called out to my wife when we visited last night and we came home with a pair of grass fed ribeye steaks – $33 dollars worth. She insisted on getting two because she thought I would eat a whole one, but I convinced her to let me save one for another night. The steak was over 1.5 inches thick and cooked perfectly in 12...
