Beef & Vegetable Stew

Beef stew is a traditional winter meal. It’s warm and comforting and simple. I added more vegetables and used sweet potato to make it hearty and healthy.

I like to make this when I need time in the evening to get other stuff done.   Easy- *** Fast- * (****) Spicy-…

Grain-Free Strawberry Muffins

Blueberry muffins are pretty popular, but I’m pretty sure I’ve never actually seen a strawberry muffin before. I have always preferred strawberries to blueberries, so I thought why not make strawberry muffins instead of the traditional blueberry muffins? I love to have muffins for breakfast because they’re grab and go. The thought of having to cook breakfast in the morning is just daunting to me. I really don’t like to do anything until after I’ve had my coffee, and that…

Mini Turkey Meatballs

Anyway, I made some turkey meatballs to recover from the holiday damage I did to my body. It’s been a few days since Christmas, but I’m…
