Garlicy Hummus

About once a week it is Big Daddy’s night to make dinner.  Usually it falls on one of my busier days when I haven’t been able to consider dinner early enough in the day to make sure that the meat is thawed and prep done.  Sometimes it is left overs but most often he does […]

Real Food Shepherd’s Pie

This almost Paleo dish was a huge success around here.  Any dinner leftovers were eaten by a certain ‘Daddy Monster’ while he did the supper washing up.  I would like to say that we ate this with a huge salad like I would recommend for you and yours to do but after a very cold […]

Braised Vegetables

Roast Beef with Braised Vegetables and homemade Horseradish Mayo I’m not sure if I will actually get the posts I promised done this week.  A couple of my planned shots were eaten by someone in this house before I was able to take a picture……I’m not naming names or nothin’……. but I don’t know if […]
