Gluten-Free Ginger Peanut Butter Cookies

This post was originally published on this siteThe kids wanted some cookies and the only sort of yummy ingredient I could find was a jar of peanut butter. Actually, more like 1/3 of a jar.

Bacon Wrapped Liver Poppers

This post was originally published on this siteYum, yum, wait… what? That’s right, we are going there. Liver. Seems like people either love it or hate it. Not much middle ground for the odd bits of the animal. Many of us grew up with liver and onions or liver loaf, but how many of us […]

Warm Cinnamon Farro

This post was originally published on this siteEmmer Farro (riticum dicoccum or farro medio) is the tastiest grain we’ve eaten. It is versatile to use as a sweet or savory side dish or main meal.

Cucumber Chips

This post was originally published on this siteLast week I found myself with a case of cucumbers and no plan of action. Well, almost no plan of action.

Carob-Frosted Nutty Bars

Salmon Cakes

Bulletproof Dandy Blend

This post was originally published on this siteMost mornings, my husband fixes us all a nourishing breakfast of eggs and bacon, but sometimes I am just not in the mood.

Pumpkin/Squash Soup

This post was originally published on this siteI accidentally came up with a new way of cooking pumpkin one day when I just didn’t feel like cleaning the bacon pan.

Crispy Ranch Garbanzos

This post was originally published on this siteAfter going through my pantry and locating some dried garbanzo beans, I decided to take my chances with a recipe I’d been thinking about.
