Veggie frittata, a weeknight savior.

Getting dinner on the table every night can be a challenge, you know it, I know it, heck even “they” know it. This is especially true when you have diet restrictions, and when you don’t like eating the same old things every other day. I try to vary our meals, and we do plan each…

Top O’ the mornin’ to ya!

BLE friendly, low carb, gluten free So this might be after the fact, but I wanted to share with you a new way to do St. Patty’s day. This year I wanted to try a different technique when it came to our St. Patricks day feast. Besides the smaller portions and lower calories, I wanted…
