I’m writing this from the local coffee shop where I’m enjoying some special time with my daughter, Nicole. What could make the day more wonderful? Well, how about knowing that there’s a tasty beef chili with bacon simmering away in the slow cooker
This quick and easy ragoût is one of my favorite go-to meals on busy days. I usually workout at 5:00 in the evening. After an intense workout, the last thing I feel like doing is spending a lot of time cooking dinner. So on workout days, I either prepare dinner in the morning and set it in the slow cooker or I turn to one of my recipes that come together fast, like this incredibly tasty ragoût.
I rarely eat pasta anymore so I usually quickly pass by the pasta aisle of my local natural organic grocery store. Since going on a gluten free diet, I just never was thrilled with the taste of gluten free pasta. Maybe I just have high standards when it comes to pasta. Before going gluten free, I ate…

The days are growing colder here in the Northeast, and winter is nearly upon us. That means it’s also nearly cold and flu season. Drinking a steaming mug of beef bone broth is a wonderful way to strengthen your immune system during these months.

If you were to take a poll in our house of who would like to have liver tonight for dinner, the responses would always be three in favor, two against, and one a nonchalant OK. The two negatives always add a strong “yuck” when the word liver is mentioned. These are typical reactions to a proposed liver dinner. Most people either love it or hate it. Personally, I love it, especially when it’s smothered in bacon and onions.
Sensational taste alert!
