Turnip Gratin

Monday, June 30, 2014



Garden is doing great -- we harvested 120lbs of turnips!! You read that right and YES, that is a lot of turnips. Some were canned, some were frozen and some are being stored in our fridge to be used -- I have been trying turnips recipes like no ones business.

Here I am -- been down with some computer problems -- grrr!! It doesn't look good and I have been very resistant to do anything about my dinosaur computer because I am not wanting to give up my old version of Windows -- dumb, huh!! I guess I will be stretching my comfort zone yet again, lol. In the meantime, what have I been doing? Why cooking and eating, low-carb of course :)

Until I am fully up and going again, I will attempt to post a few recipes -- warning: the photos will not be pretty but they will help get the idea across. Thank you for baring with me!


Tuscan Kale & Strawberry Salad

Thursday, May 29, 2014

Mr. Dreamy is growing kale in his garden this year -- not just ordinary kale, but Tuscan kale.

Other names this variety of kale goes by are Lacinato Kale, Black Kale, Dinosaur Kale, & Palm Tree Kale -- but I like the sound of Tuscan Kale best.



How Simple is THAT: Poached Salmon (and some sauce recipes to top it )

Sunday, May 25, 2014
As our weather continues warming up and I am wanting to spend more and more time outdoors, meals get lighter and less complicated. The grill comes into play a lot BUT I don't want to eat grilled food EVERYDAY -- I have found a solution to that -- poaching, salmon to be exact.




How Simple Is THAT: Taco Seasoning - Low-carb, Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free, Grain-Free

Tuesday, May 20, 2014
It's Tuesday - must be tacos!! We love tacos, taco salads and all that yumminess. With warmer weather coming on, easy menus are on my mind and tacos and taco salads fit that bill well.

Did you know that a packet of taco seasoning has carbs? A LOT of carbs. The culprit is usually cornstarch -- a totally unnecessary ingredient! It can also have added sugar in the form of maltodextrin - also unnecessary. Don't even get me started on things like MSG, lol.
