Fish Tacos

We are enjoying Mexico.  I thought why not enjoy one of my favorite Mexican meals in our room.  I love fish tacos.  I know you can make grilled or fried fish tacos but my favorite is fried.  And when you are doing  the cooking you get to make it the way you want it.   […]

Basil Pesto

I love having an herb garden. Many times, I have beautiful herbs but I don’t take full advantage of them. Basil is one of the herbs that gets overlooked. I like to make a Caprese salad–sliced tomatoes, topped with sliced Mozzarella cheese and basil with a viniagrette dressing drizzled over the top, but I still […]

Mexican Market

Today we had a great adventure. We went to a Farmers’ Market in Jarretaderas. This is a neighboring colony to Nuevo Vallarta.  They have their market every Tuesday and it brings everyone together. I enjoyed watching the locals pick out their tomatoes, limes and pineapples. The items we purchased included avocados, peppers, onions, pineapples, tomatoes, […]

Cinco de Mayo!

Today is Cinco de Mayo–the 5th of May.  A day of celebration!  What better way to celebrate than with a fabulous 5 layer dip that can also double as a main dish!  Enjoy! [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:12]

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 […]

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 […]

Sweet Potato Fries are “Sweet”

We are into the third week of the “Daniel” fast.  It has been relatively easy.  One thing I discovered, natural foods taste so much sweeter when your system is not overloaded with sugar.  The case in point is Sweet Potato fries.  The Butcher and I fight over the leftovers.  Not really, I let him have […]

Taco Salad

I just got back from my morning walk.  I watered my container garden, saw some ripe cherry tomatoes, and couldn’t resist popping them in my mouth.  There is nothing like a tomato right off of the vine.  They tasted wonderful.  The flowers are so beautiful.  I have never seen such colorful hydrangeas.  I love mornings […]

Wilkins Run Farm

When I was a child we had a garden every year. It wasn’t an option.   It was a major source of our food.  We had fresh produce all summer.  Mom canned and froze everything we didn’t eat.  For a family of 6 it was a necessity.  I can remember going out with my dad to check […]

Farmer’s Market

I have wanted to have a Farmer’s Market at Sherman Provision for at least 10 years.  I was never sure if there would be enough room to host the Market.  I wasn’t really sure how to get started.  In March 2012 I was talking to Ty Stewart, a great customer and supporter.  I mentioned I […]
