Say what? Healthy crust?

  Im always on the lookout for ways to incorporate healthy foods into our meals. Our family loves pizza and we usually eat it once a week. Most of the time on Mondays. No one wants to cook after the weekend and who doesn’t love pizza anyway. I haven’t met that person yet. So, I…

Liquid Sunshine!

Our tree has lemons! It’s a great time of year for me. I get to start making lemonade. Even though they are a year round fruit, February is when the lemons are at one of their peaks (ready for pickin’). Then again in August. Yum! Tip: If you only want to use a little bit…

A Little Piece of Heaven!

This place is yummy! The meat was juicy and the fries were full of creamy flavor. Nothing on the menu is healthy, but you don’t go there for that. You go for the comfort of a full on burger, their specialty fries and a nice cold craft beer. Go visit them if your in the…

Where the Buffalo Get Eaten

So, I made these buffalo burgers (actually they were smaller, more like sliders). OMG! They turned out great even my 7 year old ate them. I’m on this kick at the moment where we are not eating flour (bread). I didn’t use bread, but it wasn’t bunless. Instead I used sweet potato. Yum! Recipe: •…
