Creamy Fruit Salad

Recently, I needed to come up with a dessert that avoided gluten as well as the gluten substitutions. In other words, if it involved dough, batter or other bready type stuff, it wasn’t going to fly. A couple years after going gluten free, I began getting headaches just by baking with wheat for others the. […]

9 Things To Do With Bananas

4 Ingredient Salmon Mousse In Less Than 5 Minutes!

Sometimes paleo-ish-ers need a late night snack. Yes, a couple of us have gone paleo-ish. We’ve kept dairy. I read on a blog that primal is more dairy friendly, so maybe we’ve gone primal?

Cooking For the Cowboys… Quick, Simple, Cowboy Beans

Cowboy beans, so simple! This dish is a throw together meal! My sister in law made it for the boys & Hubba once several years ago. I wasn’t with them at the time, but they told me what was in it. It was a huge hit, so I set out to recreate it, & they […]
