Bacon & Bok Choy Zoodles

I can’t believe I was a sceptic of Zoodles. I honestly never would have thought that they could taste so delicious. To the point of replacing pasta! If you’re trying to cut down on gluten and/or carbohydrates (either can cause inflammation for some of us), I am telling you… THIS IS THE WAY YOU DO IT! As Scott said yesterday, …

My Favorite Green Smoothie

I don’t know why I was afraid of green smoothies, for so long. I love mint chocolate-chip ice cream, so drinking a green frozen liquid shouldn’t have been an issue. As far as the main ingredient being spinach? Well, this smoothie doesn’t taste like spinach at all. It tastes like a banana-vanilla milkshake. Another great way to get those greens …

As part of my growing enthusiasm to treat my autoimmune issues, I’ve been experimenting with lots of primitive foods. Specifically, I’ve been doing a lot with spinach. It’s so important to eat leafy greens. Especially if you are suffering with autoimmune issues as they deliver a great source of B12! If you haven’t tried quinoa yet, I don’t know what …

Veal Loin Chop with Mushrooms

I made this last night for my cousin and her family. I’ve never made it before, and I knew that was risky. But, unless they are overcooked, veal loin chops are a definite crowd pleaser~ any which way! They are so tender and flavorful. I decided to make them similarly to the way I make chicken marsala. This veal loin chop with …

Throughout my college years, I worked as a nanny and housecleaner for a family that is now (25 years later) a huge part of my life.

Bruschetta Chicken

A few years ago, I visited a friend from college who now lives in Connecticut. I only spent one night with her and her beautiful family, but I wish I could have stayed longer. She is a natural when it comes to taking care of her home, her children (who are now teenagers), and providing such warm hospitality to her guests. …

Congratulations! You have stumbled upon a drink recipe that comes ALL the way from Italy and will knock your socks off! It’s called the Italian Spritz. I never expected to be so influenced by a cocktail. Especially in Italy ~ where all I think about is homemade pasta, homegrown wine, and gelato! It all happened back in August. (Before Banana.) Scott …

Oh, and it looks beautiful, too! This is one simple appetizer that will look gourmet-quality with a touch of…drum roll, please… Balsamic Glaze Believe it or not, it was Scott that brought this …
