Stuffed Peppers

Mother’s Day is right around the corner.  I am very blessed to still have my Mom with me.  I know this is a very nostalgic time for many of you.  Many of you no longer have your Mom.  Some of you may have even lost your Mom this last year.  I’ll bet you have fond […]

Lasagna without noodles

You might think this recipe makes no sense.  Lasagna, without lasagna noodles?  Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.  I have been so hungry for lasagna.  I am avoiding sugar and carbohydrates.  I didn’t feel like messing with zucchini so I adapted my lasagna recipe and made it without noodles.  The flavor was wonderful and […]

Cheesy Taco dip with black beans

We went to a Memorial Day gathering yesterday. I was going to make Taco Salad but I found out another one of my friends had already committed to make a Taco Salad.  I decided to make a Taco Dip with Black Beans. It was delicious. Another tradition has been started. Cheesy Taco Dip with Black […]

Zucchini Ravioli

I love ravioli. Since I have been following the Paleo lifestyle ravioli is not on the menu. That is why I was fascinated when I saw zucchini ravioli. It wasn’t until I made it and tried it that I can now say that ravioli is back on my menu. I hope you enjoy this as […]

Does everyone have Championship on their mind today?  Weren’t the Buckeyes over the top last night?  They did Ohio proud.  Well, even though my chili didn’t win a National Championship, it was the hit of the pregame party.  I changed it up just a little bit and I got the thumbs up from everyone who […]

Speedy Spaghetti and Meatballs

Sometimes you just need to use good products to cut the time it takes to make a family favorite.  One of the Butcher’s absolute favorite meals is spaghetti.  I decided to make him spaghetti and meatballs for dinner yesterday.  I decided at about 4:00 and I knew we would want to eat by 6:30.  No […]

Stuffed Peppers Ole

I am loving this hot weather and nothing says summer like stuffed peppers.  Last week we enjoyed a trip to Amish country.  We picked up the most beautiful green peppers.  They were huge and crisp.  The Butcher had brought home about 5 pounds of extra lean ground beef.  Before I even thought about it I […]

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 […]
