The paleo/primal party rocked! Here is the first of many recipes to share…

The pale/primal potluck and recipe exchange party – PPPREP for short – was a resounding success. This was our second such event and we had a great turnout. While last year’s party was awesome, this year’s event shows exactly how adept our peeps have become in refining their healthy cooking skills.

We had it all – from crab cakes to meatloaf  to blueberry crumble. And it was all DEEEELISH!

So here’s the first recipe to share (it’s mine of course, because I already have it typed and I need to do this post sorrta quickly). We’ll include pictures, too. Although, I only remembered to start taking them about an hour into the feast, so some of them look a little – well – eaten!

Keep an eye out over the next several weeks for more recipes!

Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, Garlic and Shallots



  • 6 slices center-cut bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sliced shallot (about 1 large)
  • 1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon and sauté for 5 minutes or until it begins to brown. Remove pan from heat. Remove bacon from pan with a slotted spoon, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings in pan (discard the remaining drippings).
  2. Return pan to medium-high heat. Stir in bacon, shallot, and Brussels sprouts; sauté 4 min.. Add garlic, saute for 4 min. or until garlic begins to brown, stirring frequently. Add chicken broth. Bring to boil. Cook for 2 min. or until the broth mostly evaporates and sprouts are crisp-tender, stir occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in salt and pepper.
