Stuffed Like a Squash?

Legally it is Fall. That means that I can crave cornbread dressing from this point on without the guilt. In summer, I feel so guilty telling people that I just have to have some dressing, when everyone is walking around with an ice cream cone in their hands or nibbling on crisp lettuce. But now….now, … Continue reading

These great little gems have now been placed in my “oh my gosh why haven’t I made these before? I only have maybe 20 years or so left to eat them” folder!

It was not only great to see them, but it allowed me to cook for more than two, which just thrilled … Continue reading

A Senior Diet

Today Randy and I went grocery shopping. On the way to the store I had told him that we really needed to start eating more veggie meals and that we needed to try to eat a little more healthy so I can get into the pants this spring that I bought the last couple of … Continue reading

Cauliflower VS Chocolate

I learned something yesterday. I learned that when I posted the recipe for oven-fried cauliflower, it got the 2nd highest views my blog has ever received.
