Grape Fruit Marinated Flank Steak

Grape Fruit Marinated Flank Steak

As much as I love hearty dishes in winter, sometimes I crave something a bit more suited to warm weather. I grew up eating flank steak, and it has a special place in my heart. While my mom always marinated and baked this cut of meat in the oven, I'm a little less patient and find that the stovetop works just as well (only second to the grill).

Paleo Chicken Nuggets


When I was in college, my mentor and I went to Chick-Fil-A  just about every week to talk about life and whatever chapter of the Bible we were reading together. I think that’s when my love affair with those tender, yet crispy nuggets started. It’s just about the only fast food that I crave, but when I do, it’s the only thing I can think about. And the SAUCE the sauce the sauce. I would like to think that I have a healthy relationship with this establishment, but I’m starting to reconsider.

I saw this recipe from Stupid Easy Paleo for a home-made version of the infamous nuggets, and had to try them. Who doesn’t need a good nugget in their cooking repertoire? And ohemgee are they delicious. Jackie (a fellow CFA lover) and I served it up with some home made guac and yummy baked french fries. Recipes for those two lovely items are coming soon!


Creamy Spaghetti w/ Leeks


I’ve been obsessed with leeks. Literally. Every time I go to the grocery store, I find some excuse to get one. My attitude towards life right now is: “Put a leek on it.” (Portlandia anyone?) So when my F&W daily email popped into my inbox with the subject line “Creamy One-Pot Spaghetti with Leeks,” and I saw that there was ONLY ONE STEP in the directions, I knew I had to test this recipe. Like. Now. Not even one ingredient being an anchovy could deter me from the task. It turned out amazing (anchovy and all), and just as pretty as the photo on their site, if I do say so myself. I highly recommend this if you need a quick meal for a week night, especially if you’re doing some entertaining. Five Stars.
