Jeff asked if I could make a … More COUNTRY CREAMY POTATO SOUP thanks to the cute guy at the Bar at Alessia’s!
This week I learned something new. Believe it or not, I have never had a jello shot in my life. I know about them, I’ve seen them and I know that servers run around in clubs at night and give them to people (do the customers pay for them? I don’t know….) So, I was … More JELLO SHOTS….do not read this if you are not an adult beverage fan!

I finally bit the bullet and decided to try some more lo carb recipes from things we like. Fried rice is one of my favorites! Its easy and my kids loved it when they were growing up. But rice is so high in carbs, and even though I haven’t had a lot of success with … More CAULIFLOWER “FRIED RICE”
Cobb Salad may be an odd thing to be blogging, because it’s not really a “recipe”, but more of a preparation that you can change to suit your own taste. For instance, no matter how hard you try, you just can’t make some people like bleu cheese (even when you try to fool them with … More Cobb Salad…lo carb and yummy!
I know I do. I made a wonderful cranberry relish which I blogged along with Christy’s equally wonderful one a couple of weeks ago. And recently I went to a party and there was a terrific little appetizer there made with cranberries which had been spiced up.

I know it’s kind of late for another side dish for Thanksgiving. But I am a Pea lover, so I will make this anytime. On Friday nights when I was growing up, my Mom, Geri, would make Salmon patties and creamed peas. She served the peas right over the crispy little tasty patties.
