I’m very thankful for my somewhat local farmers market. I’m also thankful for the farmers who have hot houses in order to provide people like me a nice selection of summer vegetables in the fall and winter months. I don’t think I would survive. This time of year supermarket prices are cheap because non local farmers are trying to get rid of their summer crops before bringing in the fall. Here in another week or two, those prices will go above and beyond summer price to compensate for the lack of produce in the fall. [Read more…]
It snowed here in Michigan. Yup. On Halloween. We all know that when it snows on Halloween that it is a bad sign of how things will end up being for the winter. And for that I have this to say: [Read more…]
I had every intention of making all these radtastic recipes over the summer that were clean and healthy. I seriously needed to get back to eating clean and getting that sugar down or my PCOS was going to take control of my life more than it already has. My mother gave me this great cookbook called Quick Cook Vegetarian. Actually, she gave me a whole set of these Quick Cook cookbooks.

Truth – I much prefer my iPhone over my dslr, but my dslr takes much better quality photos. But, that’s a post for another day. Today we are talking about bacon. I know I missed bacon month but August came in with a bang and went out banging even louder. [Read more…]
Salmon is full of good fat and it’s my favorite fish. Sadly, the husband is not a fan. I had hoped it was because he had a bad experience and that maybe he would try mine. I cook it so many different ways, but even with one small bit he still wasn’t going to change his mind.
That’s ok. But I still have to be able to enjoy my salmon.
I did a review for Blue Apron and they sent me some salmon. I wasn’t interested in making this full fat Caesar salad with tons of mayo, so I decided to make my own healthier low-carb salad out of the salmon they sent me.
