From Chef Fromager Tia Keenan
This recipe is from Tia Keenan, a chef fromager, food industry consultant and cheese-industry pioneer based in New York City. Keenan has worked with celebrated resautrants Caselulla and The Modern as well as Murray’s Cheese and Bien Cuit Bakery. Her work has been praised in various media outlets, including Food & Wine, The New York Times, and The Cooking Channel. In Tia's words:"Pimiento (or Pimento) Cheese may be the “caviar of the South,” but Midwest cheese church Zingerman’s nails this downhome delicacy: it’s a creamy, zippy bite, with a tickling heat that commands: Keep. Eating. Slathered on earthy pumpernickel bread, with cooling, crunchy celery slaw buttressing an oozing egg-in-the-hole, it’s a kicky sandwich that oozes charm."

Fair warning: this salsa can be addictive! I first tasted it in Ixtapa, Mexico, and after that, I had to figure out how to make it myself at home. Fortunately it is actually a very simple salsa, and tastes so great with a bowl of tortilla chips and a nice cold beer on a sunny day. The creaminess of the avocados combined with the pop of spice from jalapeños and serranos make this salsa irresistible. Use this salsa to top tacos, gorditas, or sopes.

Caribbean Style Chicken
 Why This Recipe Works: Meltingly tender, slow-cooked chicken drumsticks pair perfectly with bold, spicy flavors, so we set out to create a recipe for Caribbean jerk–style drumsticks. We started by building a flavorful jerk marinade using classic jerk ingredients such as habanero chile, garlic, and ginger. But once we got to the typical additions of molasses and brown sugar, we had to employ some creative techniques to replace these nonpaleo ingredients. A simple solution was to add raisins, which provided a subtle sweetness without giving themselves away. Once slow-cooked, our drumsticks were tender and flavorful, but tasters still wanted crisp skin. A quick stint under the broiler easily solved this problem; brushing the drumsticks twice with some reserved marinade while broiling ensured they stayed moist and contributed additional flavor. Try to buy drumsticks of similar size so that they will cook at the same rate. You can substitute a serrano chile for the habanero. Wear gloves when working with hot chiles. You will need a 5 1/2- to 7-quart slow cooker for this recipe.This recipe is courtesy of America's Test Kitchen and the Paleo Perfected cookbook.

Slow-Cooked Short Ribs
These short ribs are great with some glazed carrots or mashed potatoes. The best part is, you won’t need much in the way of special equipment — just a food processor and a fat separator for skimming the fat off the sauce. You will have plenty of the flavorful beef stock left, which would be perfect for later use as a sauce. Or, freeze it until next time you cook your next short rib dish again.
