Spatchcock Roasted Chicken with Smoky Turmeric Marinade

spatchcock-roasted-chicken-and-here-we-are-at-the-tableSpatchcock... such a funny sounding word but a great way to cook chicken or other types of birds when grilling or roasting. To spatchcock a bird, means to remove the backbones and to flatten the bird out allowing for a faster cooking time while retaining tenderness and moisture. This means you can get a delicious grilled or roasted chicken or other bird, like turkey on the table faster and with less hassle.

Speaking of the table, I recently came across a recipe for ‘Spatchcock Roasted Chicken with Smoky Turmeric Marinade’ in a wonderful new cookbook written by my friend Ariana from the fantastic blog And Here We Are titled ‘And Here We Are At The Table: Grain-Free Meals From Around The World’. My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Ariana and her family in London, England last year and even though our meeting was brief, I could tell straightaway what a friendly and awesome person Ariana is and if you’ve been following her blog and social media I’m sure you will agree!

My Goals for the New Year

I think this post wins the record for “longest time it has taken me to write a blog post”! I started writing this post last week after almost 3 weeks (or maybe more, I’ve lost track of time now) of just thinking about writing this post and during that time my thoughts on what to write and share in this post have changed from what I originally wanted to write, so I’ve just been putting it off because sometimes procrastinating is just easier to do than sitting down to write a post that feels and is more personal compared to what I usually share here.

Asian Style Meatballs with Teriyaki Sauce & Paleo Eats Giveaway


Well hello there!

It feels like forever since I shared a post here with you all… probably because it has been forever! Apologies for that.

Between working on my part of the upcoming ‘Paleo Community Cookbook’ and then needing a MAJOR break from all things blogging and social media, it’s been a while since I shared anything here. Thankfully that time away was just what I needed and something I will be sharing about in a future post and now I’m ready to go and start sharing again!

Anyway I was recently sent a copy of my friend Kelly from A Girl Worth Saving bookPaleo Eats’  which releases January 6th and my goodness is this book BEAUTIFUL! First of all if you haven’t checked out Kelly’s  blog  then PLEASE do me and yourself a favour and go check it out right now because seriously this girl is so talented! Not only are her recipes absolutely delicious but they are also simple to make and her food photography… forget about it! [Read more…]

Real Life Paleo & Pumpkin Cider Latte


As you may know I’m currently busy working on a book project along with some of my other Paleo/Primal blogger friends so I’ve been busy cooking, photographing and editing recipes for the book, but I had to take a break today and share this post with you about ‘The Real Life Paleo Cookbook’  from Stacy Toth and Matthew McCarry the awesome couple behind the blog Paleo Parents (in case you didn’t know!).  I was recently sent a copy of this awesome book to review and as I do with all books I receive for review, I sat down to read it and take a good look over it before I formed any opinions on what I thought about it. After going through Real Life Paleo I thought to myself I WISH this book had been out when I first decided to switch to this lifestyle because HOLY INFORMATION AND HELP BATMAN!  [Read more…]
