Can’t pronounce it? That’s okay. As long as you know what it is. And as long as you keep it in your rotation for entertaining, or even just a random weeknight. I’ll be honest ~ I’ve always had trouble plating this meat, cheese, and condiment platter. It’s supposed to be plentiful, colorful, and artistic. I should be a natural at this! I love to cook, … Continue reading charcuterie.
Friends, it has been SO long. I haven’t been cooking much, but I certainly have been eating. Who is making all my meals? I honestly can’t tell you. I’d have to consult my credit card statement, sadly. Full disclosure ~ I lost 15 pounds in November and I never felt better! I loved the food, I loved the way I looked, I loved the energy … Continue reading HELLO!
Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there! And that means anyone who has ever “mothered” another living thing. That should cover just about all of us, right? I “mothered” my mother this weekend, and my mother-in-law as well. I made all sorts of yummy dishes and tried to pamper them as much as possible. My father-in-law and husband reaped the benefits by proxy. … Continue reading Mother’s Day Mushroom Quiche.

SLOW … Continue reading Pineapple Ribs & Keto Taco Shells.

I also think that if you just feel those feelings, you can purge them … Continue reading Day 200!!!
I’ve been asked to write a little bit about flour, and what I know about substitutes at this point. I won’t use the real name of the friend who asked me to do this ~ let’s call her Toni. (That’s her real name…ha ha haaaaa) I’ve tried a lot of flour substitutes in the past 10 years, in a never-ending search for foods that don’t … Continue reading Flour.
This is an absolute keeper! It’s our new go-to meal, and the leftovers are even more delicious. If you chop up all your veggies and keep them separate in the fridge, you can make this dish over and over when you need a quick lunch. Or you can change it up and turn it into a salad. Just heat up and pour over fresh spinach. … Continue reading egg roll in a bowl!
No noodles needed… If you’re desperate for noodles, though, don’t forget about spiralized zucchini or sweet potato. Or add noodles! I judge not, lest I be judged! This soup starts with a whole chicken, but you can use pieces if you’d like. We’re making the broth and all, folks. So this is a great recipe for a Saturday morning, when you want your house to … Continue reading Healing Chicken Soup.
Somehow I’ve managed to wake up with a cold. Seems impossible, since I’ve completely isolated myself to avoid the ‘Rona, but alas… No one, I repeat, NO ONE, can get rid of a cold faster than a singer. Most vocations don’t rely on the body to be perfectly healthy, in order to receive a paycheck at the end of the day. It’s hard to put … Continue reading Cold Remedies from a Singer.
