Shutterbug Chef!

Super Bowl Sunday is February 4th!  Whether your team is in the big game this weekend or not, Super Bowl parties are usually fun!  This year, the game is in Minneapolis where the expected high temperature is 11 degrees and the low is -1!!  The Philidelphoia Eagles and The New England Patriots are probably ok with those extremely cold temperatures. Who do you like in this match-up?  I’d like to see The Eagles win! ( Gotta keep Casey happy!)  But the party food will be great and we will all be the winners!

Also, I am looking forward to watching the National Anthem, which always brings tears to my eyes!  Let’s hope Pink does this beautiful song justice, as I think she will! Oh, and Justin Timberlake as the halftime entertainment should be awesome, too!  So, let’s talk party food: Continue reading

The Best Green Smoothie came to me from Pinch Of Yum.  I am a hardcore banana and chocolate smoothie girl but this one piqued my interest!  It is really GREEN!  The only thing in it that is green is kale.  And only a handful of it, which imparts no kale flavor! Continue reading

IF YOU ARE NOT A HUGE GINGER FAN:  KEEP READING!!  I am not a big fan of fresh ginger, however in this soup it adds a nice warmth but does not overpower with ginger flavor.

My sister Kathleen sent this recipe for Roasted Carrot Tomato and Ginger Soup to me.  I was unsure of it due to the ginger ingredient.  Kathleen said it was the best soup she had made in a long time.  So, “Here I go”  I thought to myself.  Off to the store to get ginger because everything else I had on hand!

The first time I made bone broth 2 1/2 years ago, it took 2 days in my slow cooker.  It was delicious. I used it in so many recipes and on cold mornings I would heat a little cup of it and sip it!

Paleo Brownies For Clean Eaters

December 8th is National Brownie Day!!!  And, it is Friday this year!!!!  Easy enough….let’s do this!

Magic-Brownies-2

Because, what I really want is BROWNIES ….. but for clean eaters.

I am…weak.  At least when it comes to chocolate.  Or dessert.  Especially chocolate dessert. I want brownies for clean eaters.

And it is all because of Lindsay at Pinch of Yum.  I blame her for my appetite and my cravings.  You see, she posted a 6 ingredient espresso brownie recipe  that I read and HAD TO HAVE IT!  🙂  However, I need this to be a PALEO brownie!  As in no grains, no dairy, no refined sugar and nothing artificial.  But it must taste great!!  A few changes and I made it happen!

So, my dilemma is solved as I have decided to post 2 great brownie recipes that paleo or clean eaters can indulge in without guilt. Yes, brownies for clean eaters, too.

Happy National Brownie Day!! Continue reading

After 2 days of turkey ( you know what I mean….leftovers?  Yum! ) we wanted something different for dinner.  It had to be delicious and comforting, and relatively easy to put together.  And fast.  Ok, it wasn’t THAT fast but it was only an hour or so.  But it was delicious, comforting and relatively easy. So we made Paleo Instant Pot Cauliflower Fennel Soup. A nice big fire out on the patio fireplace, a glass of wine and dinner al fresco made our Saturday night dinner special! Continue reading
