Yesterday, I slow cooked a piece of pork for 10 hours. It was delicious! It was just a huge hunk of, well, I guess Boston Butt or Pork Shoulder but it was one of those ‘lost in translation’ spanish things…. Aguja de Cerdo. Anyway. It was 1.8 kilos of pork. I coated it in cajun spices from Seasoned Pioneers and let it sit overnight. The next morning, I sealed it in...Read More
Been a bit busy in the Creative Caveman household! We popped over to the UK to record new songs for the band and visit friends and family. And, to be honest, I’ve been keeping quite basic with my cooking for a while in an effort to simplify things. But hey, that gets boring. So decided to put something new together. My chicken and leek skillet pie turned out rather nice! I...Read More
to listen to me whine…. (yes, thanks Green Day.) I was inspired by this post from Balanced Bites. I was also inspired by a conversation I had with a friend the other day with regards to having time to cook, preparing meals, and ‘gluten free’ options. I can get a meal on the table in 15 minutes and I don’t own a microwave. Yes, a lot of that is due to the...Read More
There are bucketloads of Paleo/Primal books and e-books and systems and all sorts of resources on the Internet. It would take months or years to work thru what are the best ones to check out, especially if you are just getting started on this. Or you’re just curious about what this way of eating/living is like, like some of my friends should be! It would be fantastic is...Read More
Lunch today was a sandwich, of sorts. It was one of those days where I look in the fridge and am confronted with two chicken breasts and not much else. In my recent pineapple-obsession, I have tins of cut pineapple lying around, and there’s always bacon…. So sandwich it is. And it worked really well! The possibilities are endless for this one – you could do a ham...Read More
This is a rework of a recipe I posted a while back when I used to use artificial sweeteners. (I know!) I reworked it a bit to keep to only natural sweeteners. Now, I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, so you might think you want more honey in it. I don’t. And let’s face it, when you’re eating all natural, the sweetness of the honey and the strawberries kinda...Read More
One of the strangest dishes I’ve seen in a British chip shop is the mess that is chips and curry sauce. It never looks appetising to me, but rather a blob of chunky fries covered in a gloop of neon yellow curry sauce. I understand it’s a staple of the after drinking walk home from the pub. When I came home from the supermarket the other day with a really ugly celeriac...Read More
I don’t have a lot of breakfast recipes on this site. It’s usually too soon for me to come up with something creative that early in the morning. But for some reason, after my spate with blueberries and scrambled eggs (yum!), I decided on something different this morning. Pancakes! I’m sure you could put maple syrup, or whatever it is that people put on pancakes....Read More
This is just plain weird. But fun! It takes a little bit more effort, but with bacon – it’s worth it. Makes a great picnic snack, quick on-the-go lunch or breakfast, or travel food. Always nice to have travel food! Ingredients 475g ground pork 90g spring onion (about 2 or 3?) 3 garlic cloves, minced 1 teaspoon dried chillis 1 teaspoon fennel seeds 1 can of pineapple...Read More
To follow on from my Very British Scotch Eggs, I decided to tackle the very Catalan calcot sauce. Traditionally, this is a romesco type sauce made with ground almonds, hazelnuts, breadcrumbs, garlic, tomato and roast peppers. They have competitions to make the best and, in true catalan style, the best are made from scratch using freshly roasted tomatoes and peppers and lovingly...Read More
