Simplicity is deliciousness.


“It is the sweet, simple things in life which are the real ones after all.” ~ Laura Ingalls Wilder Who needs panzenella caprese, sautéed chicken paillards or steak au poivre? Cooking doesn’t have to be complicated to be delicious. You don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen slaving over a hot stove in order [...]

Easier done than said.


Maximum taste with minimal effort. Easier SAID than done: Fran (Duh.) Laundry (Ugh.) Wall balls (Ouch!) Balancing your checkbook (Ummm?) Not going on Facebook 500 times a day (Oops!) Not swearing (*$#@!) Trying not to laugh when someone trips (Snort!) Not thinking you are better than your friend because you beat them by 15 seconds [...]

Ginger Salmon


Ginger Salmon 2 teaspoons olive oil 1 tablespoon agave syrup 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, chopped (Just like garlic, I find chopping fresh ginger to be slightly dangerous for my fingers!

Something for the kiddies.


Open wide, here comes the Paleo airplane! I have yet to begin breeding my clan of Crossfit babies, but when I do I most certainly will be feeding them the same way I eat. They will be doing burpees instead of being burped, doing baby muscle ups on their crib toys and cleaning their baby [...]

Pecan and almond crusted Halibut


Tonight I got out the skillet, thawed the halibut and prepared my nuts! Sunday night dinner is -as read above, nut crusted fish! As the holidays approach, the opportunities to eat not so healthy foods increase, so tonight, a healthy and wholesome dinner. Fish is so easy and quick and not too spendy when bought [...]

What is that drawer down there??


I’d like to introduce you to… the broiler drawer. We all have one down there. And you’ve all heard, “it’s like using the BBQ, just upside down”. But what exactly does this mean? I decided to find out. I turned the dial on my stove allllll the way around until it hit broil, let it [...]

What’s in a name?!


This is FISH STEW. Yeah, it doesn’t sound too appealing does it? But upon tasting this dish I took back all the mean thoughts I’d been having about my stew. It was delightful! Warm and comforting, supple fish and crunchy pearl onions. A perfect dish for the cool fall weather. And it was even delicious [...]

Got goat milk?


Goat’s milk is safer. There is no antibiotic residues, growth hormones, or other contaminants used on goats. Easier to digest. Goats milk has smaller protein and fat molecules with thinner and more fragile membranes than cow’s milk, which allows it to be digested easier. Lactose intolerance? Easier digestion allows the lactose to pass through the [...]
