Kate Williams Post a comment

Doro wat is the reason I fell in love with Ethiopian food. The rich, spicy gravy, perfect for scooping up with tangy injera bread had me at the first bite. And the fall-off-the-bone chicken drumsticks and springy boiled egg never hurt either. More

Southwest Cowboy Chili From 'Nom Nom Paleo'

Kate Williams 8 comments

Big, meaty entrées are the first thing I think of when I think of the Paleo diet. Think steak topped with bacon topped with steak, all fried in lard.
