Chipotle Chorizo Burgers with Maple Balsamic Sauce

Okay, everyone, you asked for it and you’ll get it. But before we get to the Chipotle Chorizo Burgers, I’ve got something else I want to chat about.

I’ve been giddy over the number of people who have signed up for my newsletter, Paleo Bytes. If you don’t know the story, here’s the quick rundown:  I gave my readers the option of signing up for email subscriptions, but I wasn’t planning on sending one out. I told myself that if I gained a certain number of subscribers, I would commit to sending out a newsletter.

A few months later, I checked my numbers, and what do you know – my “goal” (that I wasn’t actively shooting for) was exceeded by 33%. Hot damn! Obviously I needed to think up a newsletter! See, I don’t want to just bombard your email every time I post a new recipe. I never read those emails; they just get deleted. So, for my newsletter I wanted to send out fresh content that won’t be posted here, on the blog. To me, there’s got to be an incentive for opening up that email and reading it.

Well, apparently people like that idea. I’ve only sent out one newsletter…but my second will have 68% more readers!

Brussels Sprout and Kale Salad

Chopped Brussels Sprout & Kale Salad with Lemon Tahini Dressing

I’ll get this out of the way immediately: I’m not a salad person.

When I do eat salad, I have a very high expectation for how awesome it is. The main ingredient can’t be lettuce. At that point, maybe it’s not a salad anymore, but there’s something about straight lettuce that is super unpalatable to me. So unpalatable that not even loads of dressing can save it. A salad has to have variety, bulk, and fun flavors playing with each other on my tongue (because that’s a wonderful thought).

Eggroll in a Bowl

Eggroll in a Bowl – Guest Post on The Freckled Foodie

I’m so excited about this post you guys!

First off, I made this really awesome recipe, Eggroll in a Bowl. It’s all the goodness of an eggroll without dealing with the wrapper. Instead, it’s the delicious pork-and-veggie filling, seasoned to flavor perfection.

And secondly, the recipe is actually a guest post over at The Freckled Foodie.

Finally, I want to talk a bit about local and online communities!

Paleo Cider Braised Short Ribs

Cider-Braised Short Ribs over Easy Garlic Mashed Potatoes

I am thrilled to share this recipe with you.

Seriously, I’ve been thinking about it for days. Cider-braised short ribs sound like a dream, right? Spoilers: they are.

I’ve been wanting to share more main meal recipes lately, since there’s a sad lack of that on this site right now. In case you didn’t know, I love meat, but that doesn’t really show yet. So I’m on a quest to post recipes for the things I regularly eat instead of just treats and things like that (not to say that I don’t eat the treats…I definitely do). But that isn’t a realistic view of all the nutrient dense meals I normally have.

And man, is this one worth sharing.

Smoked Salmon and Goat Cheese Pizza

Every Last Crumb Review + Smoked Salmon and Goat Cheese Pesto Pizza

I was perusing Instagram one night when I happened to see a post from @brittany_angell asking food bloggers to identify themselves. I hardly consider myself a food blogger — updating once a week is lucky for me, and my lack of DSLR makes my pictures fall short of my own standards. But, I like sharing recipes, and it’s something to do in my free time. So I commented on the post, identifying myself as a novice food blogger.

To my amazement, @brittany_angell herself commented on one of my pictures, telling me she loves my blog name and wanted to send me an advance copy of her book, Every Last Crumb: Paleo Bread and Beyond! Starstruck, I almost squealed like a child. And that doesn’t happen often. In case you didn’t know, Brittany Angell is a gluten free baking genius…probably most popular for her insane paleo crispy waffle recipe.

Every Last Crumb by Brittany Angell

Although I was never asked to review the cookbook, after receiving this stunning piece of work I feel like it’s necessary. I’ll just jump right into it!
