Slow Roasted Beef & Carrot Stew

Plan ahead to allow this stew to slow roast for 2 and 1/2 hours. It’s worth it. This is another husband-approved favorite in our family. Don’t tell anyone, but there’s tons of veggies in it, so it’s nutritionist-approved too.

By popular demand I am sharing this recipe with you.  I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and friends do. Take advantage of BPA-free lined canned beans to avoid the common hormone disruptor.

Mmm, Warm Delicious Chili

Last week a client mentioned she was trying to make a healthier version of chili. Then this morning a good friend asked for my White Chili Recipe. And last night I made chili in the slow cooker and my husband said, “Yah, this is pretty good!” So all signs point to warm delicious chili! My White […]

Hana’s Chicken Mulligatawny

My Grandma collected cookbooks and I am a sucker for anything of hers. So when my Mom was cleaning out her cookbooks I took one titled Food from the Frontier.

Overnight Pumpkin Cranberry Steel Cut Oatmeal

Pumpkin and steel cut oatmeal were brought up by two clients yesterday, so I was inspired to finally make the pumpkin oatmeal I have been thinking about.  My first client yesterday talked about what to do with a huge pumpkin that she received in her CSA box and other client talked about making steel cut […]

Steel Cut Oat Risotto? Yep, really tasty!

Each week I go through magazines and cookbooks to find recipes for meals and snacks. As a result, I never make the same thing twice. This drives Dan crazy! When I make something really good, I try to keep that random page I tore out of a mag, but it usually ends up in the trash […]
