Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp for Two (grain free and very low sugar)

Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp for Two (grain free)

I just returned from Leesburg, Indiana where I spent three days eating a wide variety of delicious dishes prepared with duck, courtesy of Maple Leaf Farms (more on that in an upcoming post), and when I got home the garden had exploded with growth from a few days of rain and heat.  It was as […]

Tandoori-spiced Oven Fried Chicken

Tandoori-spiced Oven Fried Chicken (grain free)

It’s that time of year when you have to start asking yourself: am I pro or anti picnic?  While I am sympathetic to some of the compelling anti-picnic arguments (in particular, ants…), Colorado is one of the best places in the country for picnics, placing me solidly in the pro-picnic camp.  In a typical summer […]

Lamb Stew over Charred Eggplant Puree

Lamb Stew over Charred Eggplant Puree

This is a riff on Sultan’s Delight, a traditional Turkish dish of braised lamb over a roasted eggplant mash. Like all “traditional” dishes, there are countless variations on the theme, and you have a lot of flexibility in how you season the dish. I eliminated the typical addition of flour to thicken the eggplant, and […]
