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 […]

Applesauce cake with Caramel Frosting

Today is election day. It is very important to exercise your right to vote. That is a right that came because of the sacrifices of our veterans. Friday is Veteran’s Day. My dad was in the Navy, my husband, aka the Butcher, was in the Army and my brother-in-law was also in the Army. I […]

My niece Lauren gave me a Paleo Slow Cooker recipe book.  I am currently cleaning out my freezer.  How many of you do that?  You commit to pull out all of the dinners stored in your freezer for “another day”. “Another day” showed up on our calendar this week–so no new meals until the freezer […]

Applesauce cake with cream cheese frosting

When fall comes slipping in I am ready to make “fall” foods.  A must have is an applesauce cake.  Since I am now living the Paleo lifestyle it must also be Paleo friendly.  I searched the internet and found this recipe on Everybodys Honey blog.   This recipe meets the criteria.  I hope you enjoy […]
