Ok, this was good. I've now made it two weeks in a row and am making it for a third! HA! It's a crazy-easy week night meal, especially if you make a huge amount of sauce in your CrockPot. You can freeze some for future use and toss in all ingredients and leave it. Who doesn't...
Hello LiveFitters! WOW, I was a cooking fiend this weekend. I love love LOVE being in my kitchen. I need to share more of what I cook - seriously. I wish I could just think about what I did and have it come out in a blog post.
There is "breakfast" in the title of this...
The weather's changing which means I like my casseroles. Does the word "casserole" sound dated? I don't know. What I do know is that this is good. It's interesting, it's very creamy and has a hint of sharp cheddar taste to it - but it's dairy free!
1-1.5 lbs cooked meat (I’ve made this twice-first time...
I love Costco. I do - I can get my basics there - the things I use ALL OF THE TIME, for a decent price. I love that because it allows me to make my go-to meals when I don't feel up to being super creative.
This has been my a staple for several months. It's...
It's officially winter and that means our local stores and butcher shops will have soup bones! Whoop!
I am on the tail end of a cold so all I really want is broth - don't care what kind. Made a very brothy chicken soup yesterday, and today made...
I am back from Chicago! I had big plans for this trip – walk everywhere, visit the museums I haven’t been to in decades, do a little retail therapy, see a movie…and what ended up happening was I got a bad cold. And that kept me in my hotel room. For several days. Not cool.
Meatza & A Nice Red… Happy Weekend!
It’s Friday night and my man is coming home after a few days on a business trip. YAY! With this and the windy, rainy weather we’re having, I’m dreaming of a big (as in quantity) and robust but smooth glass of red with….MEATZA!
First, wine. I know very little about...
Hello LiveFitters! It's been awhile and I apologize. I hope you've been enjoying your summer!
A couple of weeks ago in my CSA I received a pound of bay shrimp...with all of this hot weather we've been having, I was inspired to make something light, cold with a bit of zing. Here's what I came up...
Well, it's hot. So we grill...a lot. What that means is I usually do grilled veggies, a hunk of meat and a salad. Well, I want to spice it up this year - so I'm making a bunch of sauces and then I just choose which one I want to put on my meat! It's...
For some reason, I was craving sloppy joes last week. This was a meal we had often as children, with the big hamburger buns, ground beef, a can of mix. The sodium we ate as children never ceases to amaze me.
Anyhoo, I found a great recipe in Make Ahead Paleo, by Tammy Credicott. I LOVE this book. If you don’t have it yet, get it. I modified it a bit based on what ingredients I had, but it was minimal modifying.
Try this over easy slaw, on a paleo bun, or, with your eggs in the morning. SO GOOD. Enjoy!
1 tbsp cooking oil (I use avocado oil)
1 small yellow onion, diced
1 red pepper, diced
2 medium carrots, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 lbs ground beef
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp salt
pepper to taste
1 tsp granulated garlic
1 tsp granulated onion
2 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 15 oz can of tomato sauce
1-2 tbsp tomato paste
In a large, deep pan, heat the oil.
Add the onion, garlic, pepper and carrots, saute for 3-ish minutes.
Add the beef, mix well.
Add through the dry mustard, mix well.
When meat is almost browned, turn heat to low and add the vinegar and tomato sauce and paste.
Heat through, about 6-8 minutes.
PS – this is a GREAT freezer meal. Make double – then, let part cool, place in freezer safe dish and viola – you have yourself another meal.
