When I was a kid, mom made her Thanksgiving stuffing with liver. To this day, I cannot stomach liver. I’ve always loved the flavor of stuffing with Thanksgiving turkey and gravy. But, I remember the frustration of picking out the liver before getting to the good parts. Years later, as a young adult, I came across a variation that would not only change my preference for stuffing, but my mom’s long-standing, family recipe, as well! Stuffing with SAUSAGE!
This is the best time of year to make soups, stews, and hot casseroles. I especially love how you can throw a lot of these hot dishes into a crock pot and completely forget about it, until dinner time! Beef stew is one of my favorites. So, I decided to create a simple yet delicious recipe, from scratch.
Friends, I am thrilled to share this extraordinary recipe that was graciously given to me, by very dear friends. It’s a knock-your-socks-off crowd pleaser. Very easy to make. And, it goes a long way! Aside from my visit to New Orleans, about fifteen years ago, I had never eaten chicken & sausage gumbo like this. Thank you, Ellen & Bruce!
Last year, my friend Tommy and his lovely family, visited The House on High Street. As a housewarming gift, Tommy came fully equipped~ and introduced us to the Pumpkin Martini!
Scott and I do a lot of entertaining at The House on High Street. Which means I’m possibly in the kitchen a lot more than the average person. I like to eat what I prepare and serve to my guests, and I despise feeling outnumbered by chips, fried finger foods, and bread. Therefore, hummus is my staple go-to appetizer when hosting and entertaining.
Lately, I’ve been keeping these Paleo Friendly Oat & Almond Butter Balls in the freezer for a quick snack that satisfies my sweet tooth. I’m so happy with this concoction I just had to share it with you!
I don’t know why I was afraid of green smoothies, for so long. I love mint chocolate-chip ice cream, so drinking a green frozen liquid shouldn’t have been an issue. As far as the main ingredient being spinach? Well, this smoothie doesn’t taste like spinach at all. It tastes like a banana-vanilla milkshake. Another great way to get those greens in.
As part of my growing enthusiasm to treat my autoimmune issues, I’ve been experimenting with lots of primitive foods. Specifically, I’ve been doing a lot with spinach. It’s so important to eat leafy greens. Especially if you are suffering with autoimmune issues as they deliver a great source of B12!
If you haven’t tried quinoa yet, I don’t know what you’re waiting for.
Baby, it’s cold outside. Ready for something hot? And, nutritious? And, delicious?
All right, then. Let’s do this!!
