Drizzled over crumbled bacon salad or as a dunking sauce for homemade chicken tenders, this little recipe is perfect when you're short on time. Just throw the ingredients in a blender, give it a whir, and and pour it on . . . . well, anything. I've used it as a marinade for chicken and shish kabobs, poured it over roasted pears & crisp romaine [...] Continue Reading
Gotta love the Sandbox Cafe --- the mud pies are cheap, the waitress is cute as a button, and there's a great view of the slide. There is this one thing, though . . . the cook can be a little temperamental. Ask for a fully loaded baked potato and you're gonna hear "That's not on your GAPS diet." ** Sigh**Do you have questions about GAPS beyond [...] Continue Reading

Well, I made a second batch of these hearty, peasant-style [...] Continue Reading
I Slow Danced With A Stranger In The Back of A Plane
