Broccoli and Rutabaga Slaw

As some of you may know, my daughter, son-in-law and brand new baby grand-daughter are spending a couple of weeks at home with me. Every single night since they got here, I made some kind of salad as a side dish to go with dinner. It’s almost become a running gag, as in: – “Guys, guess […]

Shepherd’s Pie – Italian Style

I got the inspiration for this Italian Style Shepherd’s Pie out of the same magazine that inspired this Rustic Coconut Rutabaga Mash.

Now that don’t mean you have to be expecting company or doing the Whole30 to enjoy this dish, though… You can whip up these Pork Medallions with Mushroom Sauce anytime, in no time at all! For realz, […]

Easy Sweet and Sour Chicken

Okay, so I told you I was going to try and come up with more quick and easy Whole30® compliant recipes during this new round I’m currently doing myself. So far, I have more or less kept my promise. Looks like I’ve got the “easy” part down pat… it’s the “quick” that’s apparently a bit […]
