Roast Chicken with Apple-Carrot Mash

Fall has me craving roasted, one-pan meals like this roast chicken with apple-carrot mash. I used to roast whole chickens weekly, but for some undetermined reason the habit dropped off last spring. Luckily, Fall is the best reason to revive the habit.

For this meal, the chicken is seasoned simply with salt and pepper. I wanted to keep it very basic, because the star of the show is the apple-carrot mash! You’ll roast the chicken over the fruit and veggies, letting the drippings from the meat flavor what will become a rustic, slightly sweet mash to serve with the chicken.

Grilled Peach & Walnut Salad with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette

It’s a little late in the season for a summery grilled peach & walnut salad, but I’m throwing logic out the window and sharing this salad anyway. Why? Well, just look at it!

As a kid, I hated salads. I heartily ate veggies like carrots, peas, and green beans…but if it involved lettuce, count me out. See, salads were iceberg lettuce + dressing, and they were just too boring and tasteless without drowning any iota of nutrition in processed dressing.

Now that I’m older, I know that a good salad involves more than lettuce. Toppings and add-ins elevate salads from boring to spectacular. Taking the time to make it pretty? Bonus points.

Plantain & Olive Beef Bowls

Breakfast doesn’t have to mean eggs or pastries. I’ll be the first to admit I get sick of eggs after a while, so I came up with these plantain & olive beef bowls as a filling breakfast alternative. And. It’s. Amazing.

It’s hard not to make an amazing meal when plantains, olives, capers and mayo are involved! If you haven’t been hanging out in the paleo part of the internet very long, plantain & olive beef bowls will likely sound strange. But trust me. This makes a rockin’ breakfast!

Grilled Walleye with Mango Salsa

One of my goals for the summer was to eat more seafood, especially seafood that’s new to me. Fresh, affordable, sustainable seafood is actually available in the summer and I didn’t want to pass up the chance to try new fish and sea creatures that I haven’t had the pleasure of cooking myself.

Walleye was high up on my list because it’s a hot item in North Dakota/Minnesota in the summer. Many people catch their own walleye and have huge fish fries. I didn’t go that route (because I’m not up to the task of gutting my own fish yet). But I did get my hands on some beautiful, wild caught walleye fillets! And since it’s summer, the only obvious recipe to make is grilled walleye.
