Popcorn Balls

There is something about the cool weather that accompanies Fall that takes me back to my childhood.  We always enjoyed homemade Popcorn Balls.  Fall was always the perfect time to make this treat.  I hope you will indulge with me as I make a trip down Memory Lane.  Who knows, maybe this will start a […]

Beef Stew

Sometimes you just have to get back to basics.  I have gotten off of the Paleo Wagon a little and I have seen a few pounds creeping up.  The secret is to nip the weight gain in the bud.  I have sworn off sweets and I am concentrating on “basic” foods.  Basic doesn’t have to […]

Eggplant Parmesan
