After spending the day with The Domestic Man a couple of weeks ago, he inspired me with his talk of seared scallops. With a photo result and the idea of delicious scallops and bacon in my mind, I went to town on a version of my own. We had purchased capers for another recipe, and I have always loved how they paired with salmon and salads.

cookbook / giveaway / make it paleo / paleo / primal palate
Posted by Brent Schrader at 8:17 PM
We had quite a few fresh cranberries leftover from Thanksgiving. I searched our cookbooks and the web for inspiration–trying my best to avoid the typical muffins, breads, and other sweets. I know, that sounds a little silly; but seriously, the holidays are so full of baked goodies, I wanted to make something different. Alas, my efforts to make craisins failed miserably, and the cranberry sauces and baked goods recipes abound.

Ribs are one of my favorite things to cook and eat; I remember in middle school having the whole rack of baby bbq ribs at a restaurant on Broadway across the street from my grandmother's apartment. My parents used to point out Jerry Stiller and Anne Merea (Ben Stiller's parents, who happened to go there often) when we'd both happen to be there at the same time. I would take down the ribs and a chocolate moose, and I looked like a movie extra from Heavyweights.

chicken / mustard / proscuitto / roulade / spinach
Posted by Heather at 8:07 AM
This seemingly delicate dish takes time but its actually very easy to make. The only tricky part (in my opinion) is pinning the roulades just right with the toothpicks. Thankfully, Brent was very successful with that part.
This was our first time attempting to make any kind of roulade. I have to say, they turned out better than we imagined! The chicken was super moist and the edges of the prosciutto were just a little crispy. Meanwhile, the slight saltiness from the prosciutto blended beautifully with the savory mustard and earthy spinach. No need to add salt, pepper or other spices--the food speaks for itself here. :)

|We had a full house this Thanksgiving. Brent's mom, Kathy, did an amazing job decorating the table for us.|
We hope you've enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving and are recovering from the food comas with rest and relaxation this weekend. ;) Having successfully hosted our first Thanksgiving, I (Heather) am feeling a bit sentimental.
