Inside Out Bacon Cheeseburgers

Happy Tuesday to you.  It has started to feel like Fall in Northeast Ohio.  I’m not complaining–just stating a fact.  Before I share a simple recipe I want to take a minute to thank all of you.  I have reached my goal weight of 115 pounds.  I feel like you are my accountability partners.  I […]

Zucchini Pizza Crust with Fresh Herbs

Are you enjoying the summer?  I am.  I got to play tennis this morning so I am a happy camper.  I also got to have pizza last week.  What a treat.  I didn’t even have to cheat.  Even if you are not doing Paleo or have to eat Gluten free you will like this pizza. […]

Ice Cream for the Paleo Lifestyle

When you are eating Paleo you sometimes feel like you have to give up some of the good things in life.  I know I could just “cheat”.  Who would know–right?  My body would know.  I googled Paleo ice-cream and I found a recipe.  I couldn’t wait to try it.  I found it delicious and can’t […]

Buffalo Chicken/Loaded Potato Casserole

This dish has a big name to live up to and believe me, it does!  I made this for the Butcher last week.  Those of you who know the Butcher know he does not do “hot” very well.  He got a little whiny when I told him “Frank’s Hot Sauce” was a part of the […]

This Post is for the Birds!

I am not insulting my reading audience.  This post is for the birds and bird lovers.  I have a backyard with trees and flowers and I love to watch the birds, squirrels and chipmunks.   I am especially fond of Cardinals and hummingbirds.  In our landscaping we have a Service Berry Tree right up against […]

Paleo Mug Cakes

When I started my Paleo diet on May 1st I expected this to be a three week experiment.  Owning a meat market seemed like good motivation to see what all the excitement was about.  It is fair to say that at this point I am entrenched in the Paleo lifestyle.  Last night for dinner I […]

Ribs for the 4th!

Is it just me?  Is anyone else having a hard time believing this is already the week of July 4th?  I always say it’s Memorial Day, you turn around it’s July 4th, and you turn around again and it’s Labor Day.  So much excitement as many communities are celebrating the 4th with Firework displays.  In […]

Taco Salad–Paleo Style

It is hard to believe but I have been experiencing the Paleo lifestyle for just about 8 weeks.  I have lost 10 pounds and I feel great.  I am walking 5 miles a day and playing tennis several times a week so I know my energy level is up.  While the Butcher started the lifestyle […]

Creative Pasta

When you are on the Paleo Lifestyle you need to be a little creative, and creative can be good.  I wanted pasta.  The sauce wasn’t the problem–finding “noodles” was the challenge.  Enter Spaghetti squash.  This amazing vegetable makes the perfect “Angel Hair” pasta and is wonderful with any topping. This is so simple, I feel […]

Fruits and Vegetables

I am having a love affair this summer.  Don’t worry, the Butcher knows all about it.  It is a love affair with fruits and vegetables.  I have been enjoying the Paleo lifestyle since May 1st.  I confess, I have always bought fruits and vegetables; However, the majority of them ended up in the trash.  That […]
