Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

Bacon-wrapped asparagus is one of those foods that is so incredibly simple it’s almost a scandal to call it a recipe. But here it is.

I’m really starting to re-discover and re-love super simple recipes. Simple food is so, so good!

And what might be simple to me might not be to everyone, so I’ve been working on compiling the simple things I make and sharing them with all of you, in the hopes that it makes your mealtimes simple but flavorful and awesome.

First up is these bacon-wrapped asparagus. Two ingredients. Unending awesome.

Spaghetti Squash Chow Mein

Spaghetti Squash Chow Mein

I love how versatile food can be. Seriously, real food can be so, so simple, but it can also be used for a never-ending variety of meals. I’ve recently discovered how versatile spaghetti squash can be. Case in point: Spaghetti Squash Chow Mein.

This recipe makes a lot of food, which is always awesome because then you get to use the leftovers. And let me tell ya, the leftovers are almost better than the original recipe. Don’t you just love when food tastes better the second time around?! Obviously, this would pair extremely well with my Eggroll in a Bowl, and that makes an equally epic amount of food.

Chipotle Chorizo Burger | DoYouEvenPaleo.net

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!
