Weekends are perfect for making a big pot of something delicious…. Today we made Chile Verde and while it slowly simmered on the stove top we walked the dogs in the park and also ran a few errands around town. The end result of our long wait for dinner was melt in your mouth, scrumptious, and subtly spicy homemade chile verde – to die for!!! [Read more...]

Alright all you goal setters out there. Are you ready? Goal setting is great, I’m a big fan of the idea but I’m not a big fan of setting goals only at the New Year. I hate to be a party pooper, but statistically folks who decide to turn over a new leaf starting January 1 are usually setting themselves up for failure. [Read more...]
Happy Friday Dear Friends!! Some of you might have noticed that soon I will be posting podcasts. I received a few comments in which folks expressed their concerns that I might only be posting my blog content via podcasts which is not the case at all!! My reasoning for the podcasts is as follows: each week I receive hundreds of emails and comments via my web page and my facebook page. I want so badly to answer every single question but the reality is, I am only one person and there is no way for me to do so. [Read more...]
Well, Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is right around the corner but in the mean time, in between the insanity, shopping, hanging of lights, and planning yet ANOTHER holiday meal, we all still need to eat. Here’s a delicious and amazingly easy seafood stew recipe that I would like to share with you. [Read more...]
I must say, this soup was a huge success! So good in fact that the leftovers I imagined enjoying today were gone in a flash as I watched the last bits of soup being scraped from the bottom of the pot. I’m not sure what the heck I’m going to do as my boys continue to grow, and eat, and eat, and grow and holy cow – it’s crazy how much food these creatures consume! If I had a dollar for every time I heard the words, “I’m hungry” well – you get the picture. So, the moral of the story is, if you have as many hungry mouths to feed as I do, or if you make this over the weekend and want plenty of leftovers to get you through another busy week, double this recipe!!
Also, stay tuned for my next blog which will feature an entire paleo Thanksgiving meal plan! In the spirit of the holidays, check out this blog from Cavegirl Cafe – a great reminder that it’s time to start getting ready for the season!
