Yesterday I arrived at the grocery store early in the morning just as they placed the warm baguettes, fresh from the oven, on display.  Somehow, this beautiful piece of bread found its way into my basket and I knew a sandwich was on the menu for lunch.

One of my favorite go-to restaurants in New York City is Mario Batali’s Otto in the Village.   It’s casual yet every dish is made with high-quality ingredients.  Best of all, it is right down the street from my sister’s apartment, so its an easy choice when we are craving Italian.

Italian Macaroni Vegetable Bake

One of the best parts of moving to New York has been being closer to my sister.  Now that we are both in Manhattan, we have dinner at each others apartments at least once a week.  She first made this healthy Italian dish at her apartment a few weeks back and we both loved it!

I couldn’t wait to make it for myself and photograph it for the blog.  We even made it again for my grandma and cousins when we were all in San Francisco last week!  Needless to say, this is a new dinnertime staple in both of our repertoires.

Paleo Italian Meatballs

2 Comments | Written on January 15, 2014 at 5:00 am , by

Curious about this Paleo diet everyone is talking about?

The premise is simple, if the cavemen didn’t eat it, you shouldn’t either.  That means avoiding refined sugar, dairy, legumes and grains.  The focus instead is on meat, fish, poultry, fruits and vegetables.  Good news?  If you need to follow a gluten-free diet, any Paleo recipe is right up your alley.

This recipe for Hot Italian Meatballs was adapted from “The 163 Best Paleo Slow Cooker Recipes” cookbook by Judith Finlayson.

It was my first attempt at a Paleo recipe and, I have to say, it was really enjoyable!  Maybe I need to give this caveman thing a try?  (Just kidding gentlemen, I’m not into being clubbed over the head…)
