I love the taste of homemade ice cream but I haven’t owned an ice cream maker in years and haven’t felt inclined to buy one. Because we don’t eat ice cream that often, I haven’t wanted to spend the money on a new ice cream maker and then there’s the issue of storing it. Over […]
I love the spicy flavor of ginger and have used it forever in various dishes like stir-fries, fresh vegetables, smoothies, and sauces. I prefer to buy fresh ginger root, which is available at grocery stores year-round, and fairly inexpensive…there’s a lot of flavor in a small amount. One of my aunts sent me a recipe […]
Beet greens? Yes, beet greens. One of my new favorite foods. And since you have the greens when you buy fresh beets, I consider them a free food. (I used to throw them away, not knowing you could eat them.) Along with the greens we’re cooking pork chops (on sale for $1.99 a pound at […]
If you’ve never had fresh beets you have to give them a try. If you’ve eaten canned beets and didn’t like them, again, try the fresh ones…you just might be surprised how different (and delicious,) they taste. Beets are in season and available at your local Farmers Markets. We’ve been buying red and gold beets every […]
Earlier this year I had a routine office visit with my rheumatologist where within the first couple of minutes of her saying hello, I just started crying. Now me being me, I apologized for crying as I cried but I just felt so bad physically and mentally, and was just so tired of feeling that way, I […]

I have been making Elote, a typical Mexican street food, which is grilled corn on the cob coated with mayo and spices, for years. We love it! In this recipe I deconstruct the corn on the cob recipe and make a salad instead. It is so good with fish, steak, pork, or chicken. I used […]
These chicken tostadas are simply delicious! The chipotle-lime cream sauce takes them to a whole new level and they are so fresh tasting with lots of different layers of flavor that all work together for one of the best tasting chicken tostadas I’ve ever eaten. Seriously! If you don’t have a grill, you could always bake the […]

Hopefully this will give you some ideas for a party or shower you might be hosting in the future. Using what you already have in a different way (like the football dish), and picking up paper products and little decorations from a dollar store can really help you save money.
I had never heard of “socca” which is a gluten-free chickpea flatbread, a lot like a thin pizza, popular in the South of France. The crust itself has a very mild flavor so it’s best when topped with bold-flavored toppings. This is so easy to make, inexpensive (depending on your toppings,) and can be made […]
One of my very favorite things about summer is visiting all the local Farmers Markets. Getting outside to enjoy the weather, mingling with those in our community, supporting the local farmers and small businesses, and of course enjoying all the fresh produce and homemade products. Here is the schedule for all the Farmers Markets in […]
I’ve never been a huge fan of homemade lemonade, usually finding it overly sweet or too tart. The few times I have made it, the proportions were off and it tasted just ok, and not really worth the effort. But, the other day I saw a recipe in Everyday with Rachael Ray magazine (the August 2014 edition,) and […]

Here’s 10 of the best foods that work with your body for a natural detox, which just might make you feel better and help your body function better.
The entire house smelled fantastic as they baked up and I think I was actually drooling while I waited for the timer to go off. My only complaint is that they are so good, it’s hard to not overindulge.
Recently there’s been a couple of stories in the news about people going to the emergency room with stomach pains that were a result of accidentally consuming a grill brush bristle, that perforated the GI tract. Who knew? The CDC reports that the tool’s bristles can stick to the grill, then transfer to food and be […]
When choosing strawberries, choose plump, uniform in size, and brightly colored ones. And don’t wash them till you’re ready to use. The baby blue salad with balsamic vinaigrette and pecans is one of my favorites and the vinaigrette is so good, once you make it, you’ll be making it all the time!
