Hearty Hungarian Beef Stew (paleo, GF)

Hearty-Hungarian-Beef-Stew-paleo-perchancetocook-2I don’t know if it’s the rain or my desire for Fall weather, or a combination of the two, but I have been wanting warm comfort foods for weeks. It started with my desire for cinnamon everything, then my need for pumpkins galore, and now my yearning for slow cooked beef stew! It’s hard to find a meal more warm and comforting than a good beef stew.

Chia Chocolate Pudding (paleo, GF, dairy-free)

chia-chocolate-pudding-perchancetocook-1I recently watched a food documentary on Netflix. Of all of the information crammed into this two hour film, the thing that stuck out the most to me was how amazing chia seeds are for you. This made me want to start adding more chia seeds into my life… starting in the form of pudding! Continue reading

Caramelized Pineapple Pork Loin (paleo, GF)

Caramelized-Pineapple-Pork-Loin-paleo-perchancetocook-11I’ve been buying lots of pineapple for the past few months due to it’s anti-inflammatory effects… it also doesn’t hurt that it’s really delicious. I normally juice it or eat it freshly cut, but I don’t often cook with it. Which is a shame because pineapple is so great to cook with!So when I had some pork loin tenderloin waiting to be cooked and some pineapple waiting to be eaten, I decided that this would be the perfect opportunity to cook some pineapple.

This Paleo Chocoalte Fondant is my all time favorite chocolate recipe… it’s the BEST. Continue reading

Applesauce Cake (paleo, GF)

applesauce-cake-paleo-perchancetocook-2My boyfriend and I recently bought tickets to Massachusetts to visit his family and go apple picking. I’ve never gone apple picking, so I’m excited to go and to taste fresh picked apples!

Ever since our tickets were booked, I’ve had apples on the brain. I had the idea to make an “apple sauce” cake and quickly put some ingredients together and put it in the oven. Continue reading

Strawberry-Kiwi Chicken Tender Salad (paleo, GF)

Strawberry-Kiwi-Chicken-Tender-Salad-paleo-perchancetocook-8Remember when strawberry-kiwi flavor was all the rage? I don’t know about you, but my 7 year old self loved anything strawberry-kiwi flavored. Candy, drinks, you name it.

My food preferences have changed a lot since then (thank goodness!), but I still love when sweet and sour flavors are paired together. Which is why I wanted to give strawberry-kiwi a grown-up try. Continue reading

Orange Marjoram Chicken (paleo, GF)

Orange-Marjoram-Chicken-paleo-perchancetocook-2I’ve been in kind of in a chicken rut. I haven’t wanted to make anything that I’ve made before, but I also can’t think of anything off the top of my head. Normally I try to think of ideas on my own, but sometimes I just need inspiration. So I searched Williams-Sonoma for some ideas.

I came across this Chicken in Orange-Riesling Sauce recipe, which looked delicious, so I decided to paleo-ize it. Continue reading

Cinnamon Coffee Cake Crumble Muffins (Paleo, GF)

Cinnamon-Coffee-Cake-Crumble-Muffins-paleo-perchancetocook-11As summer winds down, I find myself wanting Fall to be all around me. And not just the brisk air and fallen leaves (and the cute jackets and boots that come along with the weather) … I want pumpkin, apples, and cinnamon aromas filling my kitchen and my home.

I didn’t realize how much I missed Fall until I made these. My whole apartment turned into a baker’s cinnamon heaven and I instantly felt cozy and warm and like Fall had begun. Continue reading
