Recipe Collection: Quick Stir-Fry Shrimp

By | March 1, 2012

When I don’t know what to make for dinner, this is a super-quick meal to make.  I use pre-cooked shrimp, so all I have to do is quickly toss it with the spices and heat it through, and it’s done.  In fact I made it earlier this week because it was after 6 and I Read More

Recipe Collection: Coconut Gingerbread Muffins

By | February 23, 2012

I thought it might be interesting to see if I could use coconut flour to make a type of gingerbread.  Now, I don’t — unfortunately — really like the way coconut flour bakes.  Never have.  But my kids do, and my husband is back on GAPS, so… coconut flour it is.  These muffins are totally Read More

Recipe Collection: Guacamole

By | February 16, 2012

I’ll be honest: I have never really tried guacamole.  Okay, so why am I posting a recipe for it?  Most everyone around me likes it, so I experiment with it (as I do with bananas, which I also don’t like).  I have watched many people make it and have studied what they seem to like Read More

Recipe Collection: Mexican Rice

By | February 9, 2012

I used to love going to Mexican restaurants.  I’d always get burritos, enchiladas, or quesadillas (with chicken or mushroom fillings) with sides of refried beans and Mexican rice.  Oh, I loved the beans and rice! Unfortunately most Mexican restaurants use a lot of soybean oil and other unhealthy ingredients.  Too bad they don’t use the Read More

Recipe Collection: Roasted Brussels Sprouts

By | February 2, 2012

Are you bored with the usual dinner vegetables?  I know we are.  That’s why I decided to try out these delicious roasted brussels sprouts.  They’re not the yucky, overcooked, nasty mess that you used to eat as a kid.  They’r crisp outside, soft inside, and tasty.  Try them out!  They’re easy and fairly quick, too.

Healthy Banana Bread Muffins

By | January 31, 2012

I’m going to go bananas! And not because I have too many bananas! We are super busy starting our business, plus I have to wear all my regular “hats” like being a mother, wife, blogger, etc. In the craziness of it all, I thought I’d share a healthy banana bread recipe. What you need: 2 c Read More

Recipe Collection: Versatile Sausage and Veggie Pasta

By | January 26, 2012

I call this versatile because you can easily add and subtract ingredients here to make it veggie-free, meat-free, grain-free, etc.  Just depends on how you like it!  I loved it, so I’m going to show you the standard version and the way I enjoyed it.  But there are certainly other ways. Ingredients: 1/2 lb. pastured Read More

Recipe Collection: How to Soak Rice

By | January 19, 2012

Rice is something of an enigma of grains.  It’s both low in phytates and phytase (the enzyme that helps break down the phytates).  That means that it doesn’t “have” to be soaked, which is why many people choose it when they need something fast.  It’s still better to soak it, though.  The method is somewhat Read More

Recipe Collection: How to Steam Vegetables

By | January 12, 2012

Image by whologwhy One of the easiest ways to cook vegetables is to steam them.  Of course, we all have visions in our heads of overcooked, yucky-smelling vegetables from cafeterias or perhaps well-meaning parents who didn’t know how to cook.  You know…the ones that are totally limp and have no flavor left to them.  Who Read More

Recipe Collection: Seasoned Fries

By | January 5, 2012

I used to love Arby’s curly fries.  What’s not to love?  …except for all the health detriments, of course. Then one day I made these at home, and to me, they taste quite a lot like those curly fries, only with no  junk!  I love these fries so much.  And they are easy. You will Read More

Super Simple Cheeseballs

By | December 30, 2011

Photo by Dre of White Stables  By Debra Worth, Contributing Writer Growing up, one of my favorite dishes around the holidays was cheeseballs. I remember my mom making them for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and if we could convince her, New Years. I have so many fantastic memories surrounding them. When my mom first taught me how Read More
