Grain Free Salmon Cakes

Tired of the same old poached/baked/grilled salmon? Love salmon but nervous about how to cook it? These salmon cakes are easy peasy and taste soooo good. Not to mention, in the spirit of fall and all things pumpkin, I had to throw a little pumpkin pureƩ in there for good measure. Salmon is a great... read more

Pecan Pie Cookies...

Pecan Pie Cookies…

  With friends coming over later this evening for a stew dinner and a nice fire I felt it would be nice to end the evening with a little sweet something. What better compliment to a night of laughter, wine and whiskey than a little pecan pie. And then I remembered a great recipe I... read more

Think about being a captain of that team. In the most simple and fundamental terms you pick the best... read more

Enter Sandman

We’ve all had those nights where sleep seems impossible. We try everything…hot tea, reading an old textbook, or if you’re like me two summers ago, a cup of whiskey. Unfortunately, short of passing out, many of these things don’t seem to work for most people. Reading can get our brains firing and hot tea is... read more

Hey Honey...

Hey Honey…

Not just regular out of the plastic bear honey. I’m talking the good stuff. Liquid gold. Unpasteurized, and unrefined RAW HONEY. You might have to dig a little deeper than your big box grocer to find this gem of deliciousness and health, but it is worth it. More than just a sweetener, honey has loads... read more
