Spicy Beans with Kielbasa Sausage

I remember when I first started a Paleo diet — beans were completely shunned!  Strict Paleo eaters will still say beans are a no, no.  But me?  Well, I’m from Texas — aaaaaaaannnnd we love our beans.  SPICY…beans?…even more so.

Paleo Carne Guisada

Hello all!  One of my all-time favorite Mexican dishes is carne guisada — it is basically beef stew meat that is slow cooked with spices in a gravy.  While carne guisada has always been a go-to dish for me I have stayed away from it for the last few years.  I adore a good carne […]

Pork Shoulder Stew with Chorizo and Red Beans

Who’s ready for warmer Spring weather!?  I know I am!  Nonetheless, mother nature decided to throw another cold spell our way this last weekend.  Ice everywhere.  Urgh.  Someday soon we’ll be into spring veggies and fruits — cooler crisp salads and picnics, but that time just isn’t here yet.  For now, if it’s cold where […]

Chicken Chili

This dish only became chicken chili after I tasted it.  I truly had no plan… all I knew was that I had to work all darn day and needed something to eat when I got home.  I had thawed out some chicken…and then what… Sometimes those throw together type recipes are the ones that turn […]

Slow Cooked Beef Stew

It’s so nice when you’re able to plan your meals with the weather.  When it is cold and wintery outside a nice warm beef stew just soothes the soul…but, I live in Texas ya’ll.  It doesn’t get that cold!  I decided to throw a beef stew together for my slow cooker this morning, and it reached 90 degrees […]

Slow Cooker Chili

In a previous post I shared a very fond memory with you.  Halloween is creeping up on us, and if you recall…  for me that means Witch’s Brew!!  I decided to make a batch (of chili) a little earlier this year.  I ended up working a shift from 9 am to 7 pm yesterday, and […]

Beef Heart Chili

Thought I fell off the wagon, did you?  We are about half way done with our Whole30 — today marks Day 14.  The last post covered up to Day 10, so yeah I’m pretty far behind.  Luckily I have kept track with pictures…so I am still prepared to share what’s been going on with ya’ll.  I […]

Slow-Cooked Pineapple Pork Ribs

Well, it is officially our last day to include any sort of fruit at mealtime.  Might as well go all out and make it one of the sweetest of all!  Had another day off today, the third this week, which is not a good thing.  I actually wanted to stay in bed all day long […]

Menu Changes and Foodborne Illness

I have failed you lately, so sorry!  My updates have not been frequent enough in that they are not timely with my menu, and even my pictures have been horrible!  Don’t know what course I have been on, but I haven’t been playing by the rules!  I guess that happens when you just have too […]

Hungarian Beef Goulash

Have I ever mentioned what spice I love most?  Gosh…it can be hard to choose, but I hold a very special place in my heart for paprika.  Paprika is really just ground up dried bell peppers, but it goes so well with a wide variety of dishes.  I love using paprika on not only meat […]
