Nana’s Spanish Saffron Chicken Soup (Paleo)

This is a  bowl of nostalgia! The first time I made this I was nervous about using just water and not adding some broth but I wanted to follow Nana’s recipe so I didn’t change it. I’m so glad! It is perfect as is. Exactly as I remember it as a child. Spanish saffron is pricey but so worth it.

Nana’s Spanish Saffron Chicken Soup

1 lb of chicken pieces
1 clove minced garlic
olive oil
2 pinches of Spanish saffron
salt and pepper to taste

Saute the garlic in pasta pot. Fry chicken in garlic and olive oil. Put enough water in pan to cover the chicken (about a quart or so). Add salt, pepper, parsley, and 2 pinches of dried saffron. Boil about 1 hr 15 minutes and serve broth and chicken over cooked spaghetti.


Pumpkin Muffins – Paleo and Primal

I’ve made these with butternut squash with equally delicious results! I love these muffins for breakfast.

Pumpkin Muffins – Paleo and Primal

1 1/2 c almond flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 c canned pumpkin
2 tbsp agave
1 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon
3 eggs
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup raisins
2 tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Spray a muffin pan and preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Add all the wet ingredients, and all the dry ingredients. Mix them together and divide evenly into the muffin pan. Bake at 375 for 18 minutes.
