Oatmeal Cookies: Load ‘em Up!

Oatmeal: some see breakfast food; I see hard to resist soft cookies delightfully textured with crunchy, chewy, chocolaty add-ins, ready for some serious milk dunking.

I liked Healthy Hot Chocolate simply because of the creativity of ingredients, beautiful photos, and who doesn’t need a little chocolate on Friday. Enjoy! Don’t you LOVE it […]

Sweetly Spiced Crispy Pecans or Walnuts

Nuts can be a great protein snack, but they can also leave folks with a heavy, bloated feeling.  After a bit of nutritional research I discovered that nuts have enzyme inhibitors that cause the discomfort and the full nutritional value is more available when soaked and dehydrated.  For more detailed info on this subject, check […]

Inside Out Turkey Pot Pie

Turkey Pot Pie was scheduled for dinner, but since life did not go as planned, I ended up with less time than I needed to prepare it.  Since the filling is cooked on top of the stove anyway, I decided to save the oven time by skipping the pastry and used biscuits instead.  There was […]

Building on a […]

Chicken Saltimbocca

  When I told my daughter I was making Chicken Saltimbocca for dinner, she said, “What’s that?”  My response: bacon on chicken.  Technically, that is not true, but it is the best short answer I could think of and it describes the essence of this dish.  Prosciutto is Italian cured ham, which imparts a savory, […]

Our quest for nutritional health began a little over ten years ago.  Eliminating refined sugar, oils, white flour, and processed foods were the focal point of our dietary makeover.  We made significant changes, benefiting with less seasonal illness, sustained level of energy, and […]

Ah, Chowder!

Seafood Chowder has always been a family favorite, though I don’t get around to making it often because it is a little involved.  I passed this recipe on to a friend of mine (a devout non-cook) who conscripted her son to help make it.  During the holidays he asked me why I would go to […]
