Sometimes I've heard people say that paleo food can be bland or boring. First of all, they're wrong. Please don't tell me you ever think that. If you do, your spices are expired or you aren't using them! Either way, you need some more. How about winning them here?

*** That being said, to ENTER THE GIVEAWAY, leave a comment below answering this question: If you could cook dinner for anyone, who would it be and what would you make? I had to answer this question recently and found it very thought provoking and kind of difficult if you care enough to answer it honestly! Either way works for me! Just make something up. This can be answered in a two-word response. For example : Madonna, pie.
 Also, be sure to leave your email address so I know how to find you!

Fyi, Cooking Planit sponsored this contest. They are awesome, and that is my personal opinion.

  1. Tough one. I'd make pecan crusted tilapia and roasted root vegetables for my family. (I don't like cooking for strangers.)

  2. Wow...that's a tough question, but my pick would be Food Network's (Chef) Michael Symon (go big or go home, right?) and I'd introduce him to something Paleo-style (perhaps a sweet potato gnocchi ;)

  3. I guess I'd get the family together--not just the immediate family but everybody. I might make a big spicy Tex Mex something--maybe fajitas with lots of chicken and beef

  4. If I could cook dinner for anyone, it would have to be the person who has the most influence and power to make a difference in the lives of homeless and orphaned children in the nations of the world.
    First I would prepare a meal similar to those the children recieve [a thin broth with no fressh frout or vegetables, no meat, sparcely sprinkled with rice served in a dirty container] and then place is beside a lavish banquet feast [tropical fruits,nuts, fresh vegetables, grilled fish, blackened chicken, roasted beef...served at a seated formal dinner.] The meal that is considered normal and 'adequate' for the homeless orphaned children would be free...the banquet feast would come at a price...to build and provide both homes and an abundance of food for the homeless and orphaned children. sowingstitches[at]gmail[dot]com

  5. It's all sappy but I'd make my grandmother fried chicken, she's been gone about 5 years and her cardiologist had her on a pretty restrictive diet for like a decade and I know she missed the good "bad" stuff.

  7. I would cook one last meal for my Father. It would be Italian, anything he wanted. I imagine it would be lasagna, or maybe a chicken parmesan, an anti pasta and lots of crusty garlic bread. A cannoli for desert. He would tell me that it was the most delicious thing he's eaten since he was 12. (when his mother died) I would not totally believe him because he thought everything I ever did was genius. I would remember that I am his Cara Mia and he is my Daddy Poppa.

  8. I would cook a potluck dinner for all the members of my CrossFit box, the best group of friends I've had since I was a kid. I would make a couple of whole roasted chickens (wrapped in bacon), some hearty kale, some sweet potatoes, and a paleo desert. We would WOD and then eat and drink together! madavis4@illinois.edu

  9. I would cook Braciola for my husband. I feel like since having kids, my husband's favorite foods have taken a back seat to what my kids like.

  34. I'd gather up my whole extended family from all around the world together and have a shrimp boil. Ok, that's not much cooking but it's a family tradition and the point is simple, good food and family time. But I'd make a big chocolate cake for dessert...maybe the paleo fudge cake from a few posts back.
