Sweet and Tangy BBQ Sauce {Paleo, AIP, Nightshade Free}

Sweet & Tangy BBQ Sauce {paleo, aip} - perfect with shredded pork, chicken or beef, baked BBQ chicken or anywhere else you'd use BBQ sauce - Adventures in Partaking - Bethany Darwin

This recipe was total serendipity....

serendipity
ˌsɛr(ə)nˈdɪpɪti/
noun
  1. a fortunate accident or the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way.

Some recipes take weeks, months, even years (I have a thanksgiving recipe I've been tinkering with for years) to create. You try and try again and try again and keep making your family eat the same thing over and over.

Ginger Beef Lettuce Cups {Paleo, AIP, Whole 30}

Ginger Beef Lettuce Cups {paleo, aip, whole 30} - this meal that's packed with Asian flavors allows you to play with your food and is perfect when paired with the Quick Pickled Salad - Adventures in Partaking - Bethany Darwin

If you miss the convenience of take-out, are short on time and enjoy an asian flavor in your meals, then this dish is perfect for you. It looks impressive enough for guests and yet it's also the perfect meal to scarf down while settled in front of Netflix..... (in case you're curious my hubby and I are hooked on Elementary, we're waiting for season 2 of Designated Survivor and when I'm home alone it's old episodes of Grimm for me.) Ginger and turmeric combine with lime juice and fish sauce to give this dish the "I-can't-stop-eating-it" quality that we all love so much. This would also make a great appetizer to serve at your next dinner party.

Mediterranean Chicken Livers with Olives and Apricots



This recipe packs a lot of flavor that compliment the chicken livers (if you're a liver lover) OR help to disguise them (if your not). It combines the flavors of the middle-east and mediterranean region, such as olives and apricots and cilantro, with more traditional liver recipe flavors like onion, garlic and balsamic. Each bite is an adventure with the sweetness of the apricot and pomegranate, the tang of the lemon and balsamic and the saltiness of the olives. All combined, it's a flavor you're going to want on your regular rotation.

Three Herb Tabbouleh {Grain free, Paleo, AIP, Vegan}


This recipe takes a staple of the middle eastern table, removes the grains and nightshades and recreates it with AIP flavor and flair. If you look 'tabbouleh' up on wikipedia, this is the definition that you'll find.... "Tabbouleh is a Levantine vegetarian dish made of tomatoes, finely chopped parsley, mint, bulgur and onion, and seasoned with olive oil, lemon juice and salt. Some variations add garlic or lettuce or use couscous instead of bulgur." To me though, tabbouleh is simply goodness on a plate.

Paleo/ AIP Mother's Day Brunch



Mother's Day is just around the corner and it's time to do something special for the woman who has done so many special things for you over the years. There's no way you could ever repay her for all the sleepless night, packed lunches, homework help and the thousand and one things she's done for you over the years.

BUT, that doesn't mean that a bunch of flowers a heartfelt thanks and maybe this AIP brunch wouldn't be a bad idea in the way of thanks.

Hamburger Steaks in Mushroom Gravy {AIP, Paleo, Whole 30}


Did you grow up on this southern classic?

This is one of those dishes that I had almost forgotten. But, walking through the grocery store last weekend, my husband (notice how I just casually toss that word in) mentioned how much he likes mushrooms and this dish popped into my head. I made it last week as a trial and he asked for the leftovers for lunch the next day, so I knew I had a keeper on my hands and made it again this week to share with you. 


Very rarely do I make the same thing twice in one week, so you know it must be good. This will easily be on my regular rotation. It's a simple weeknight dinner that's nice enough for guests and it makes good leftovers. Next I think I'll double the recipe and freeze some.

13 Top Tips from the AIP Trenches


Over the last couple of weeks I've been asking a series of questions on the Adventures in Partaking Facebook page designed to encourage and inspire each other. My thought is that too often we look to the "experts" (the bloggers and cookbook writers - who are all great resources by the way), but we forget about the thousands of people living the AIP life day in and day out. 

Some of these are tips for getting started, some are products that people love, some are time saving tips and some are cooking hacks. I'll also jump in and editorialize by adding some links and other helpful suggestions. My hope is that this post becomes a go-to post to keep all of us on the right track.
