3 Cheap, Easy, and Clean Meals

So…I started a thing last Friday, and I’m trying real hard to be a good girl and follow through. Friday’s Favorites. Today I want to share a little insight into our diet. People are starting to notice that we have…shrunk, a bit. My husband (annoyingly) has lost WAY more weight than I have. But that… Read More »

Beach Day With Taste of Nature

Living near the beach has many perks. But my favorite one, besides the weather, is that people want to come and visit us. We also live close to a major airport and this too brings folks our way.

Homemade Creamed Horseradish

I suppose you might be wondering what you’re looking at up there. No, I didn’t castrate a horse. What we have here is a large horseradish root. Remember a while back I was knocking the Paleo diet, but told you they have a killer horseradish recipe? Yah, well, I thought I’d do us all a… Read More »

CornDog Muffins

Do you have picky eaters? Me too. Coco pretty much won’t eat meat unless it’s a hotdog or in spaghetti. She does like salad though. And rice. But not beans or cheese or peanut butter. Grrrr. Chaucer, on the other hand, eats a turkey sandwich for breakfast every morning. He’ll gobble up any type of… Read More »
