Potatoes and Thyme: A Perfect Pairing

I wanted to create a recipe for scalloped potatoes this year that was a little different so I chose my favorite herb to liven things up. It was lip-smacking tongue-tingling delicious! You forget all about the need for heavy cream or cheese in these puppies! Plus, potatoes and thyme go with everything. This is the perfect accompaniment to any meat or seafood […]

Cauliflower and Brain Health

Mmm this Roasted Cauliflower and Red Onion would go divinely with that prime rib I posted a couple days ago, or even the ham I’m cooking up on Monday.

Alien Peanut Bibimbap

Tonight I decided to honor a good friend on her birthday by creating a crazy version of Korean Bibimbap with traditionally fermented soy beans. I call it Alien Peanut Bibimbap because these slimy little nuggets seriously do look like an alien choked on some peanuts and hacked ’em up up after Sigourney Weaver pounded its back. . Now, I had never tried […]

Certified Humane, Now Available Near Me!

When I wrote Good Decisions Most of the Time, I talked about how certain animal products that bear the label “Certified Humane” are some of the highest quality products available.

Tired of Eggs for Breakfast?

A member of our community messaged me today to say that she had had it up to her eyeballs in eggs for breakfast. “Please”, she begged, “Give me something else to eat for breakfast other than eggs!” I had to agree, I remember that when I was developing the No Sugar Challenge I started getting tired of recommending eggs. So Cassie, this recipe is […]
