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 […]

Smoked Pork Chops

Smoked Pork Chops are a great selection for dinner.  Why?  You might ask.  I’ll tell you why.  The Butcher has done all of the hard work for you and you will get all the credit.  That works for me every time!  I paired my Smoked Pork Chops with pork and sauerkraut, smashed garlic red potatoes […]

Grilled Flank Steak

Summer is not through with us and I am not through with Summer.  I have been taking advantage of these beautiful days to walk, play tennis and grill out.  This recipe has become a family favorite and leftovers can be used to make delicious fajitas.

Carrot Cake

September is Birthday month in our household.  I am celebrating my birthday tomorrow.  Those of you that know me know that Carrot Cake is a real weakness for me.  I’m not sure if I will bake a Carrot Cake tomorrow but I think I will have to bake one over the week-end.  You can always […]

Peach Paleo Ice Cream

Eggplant Parmesan

I love this time of the year when you can stop at roadside stands and buy fresh produce from the local farmers.  I  recently bought 2 eggplants.  My intention was to grill them, but I forgot about them.  I decided it was time to use them so I made up a quick version of eggplant […]

Zucchini Bread

Tis the season to have lots of zucchini.  We are visiting with friends in Minneapolis (and yes, we are going to see the Tribe tonight!).  Dave and Deone have been great hosts.  Other friends, Kathy and Doug Gehlhar had us over for dinner.  Kathy made an absolutely delicious dinner.  I couldn’t stop eating the zucchini […]

Sausage and Peppers

I am feeling melancholy today.  I don’t know why.  It is a beautiful summer day.  Maybe it is the realization that summer is going by so fast.  Then I stop and think how many summers have already gone by and thinking that maybe life is going fast as well.  I don’t intend for this to […]

Pulled Pork

Sometimes you just have to go “back to the basics”.  Pulled Pork is one of my “go to” recipes.  This time of the year is filled with Family Reunions or get-togethers with friends.  Pulled Pork is such a versatile dish.  You can serve it over baked potatoes, on buns or just by itself.  You can […]

Grilled Chicken Souvlaki

Summertime makes you want to get outside.  Grab your tennis racket, your baseball equipment, your basketball and head outdoors.   There is something about being outside.  You definitely need to get your grill out.  There is something about grilling out that makes you forget you are cooking.  This is one of my favorite meals.  Make […]
