One of the things my mother made when I was growing up was a Sherried English Trifle. It was oh, so good, and decadent. Continue reading Paleo Sherried English Trifle
About ten years ago I read a series of books that totally changed my life. It is sad to say that the author allowed his ego to take over, and he is serving time in jail for embellishing his claims. Ego and greed can be a powerful thing. I won’t mention his name in this post, because he has done a lot of good. The most powerful things he did for me were that I started reading the labels on all of my foods, which lead me to eating mostly organic foods, filtering my water, not only the water I drink, but also the water I take a shower with.

I know St. Patrick’s day was a couple of days ago, but once again I impressed my guests with a traditional St. Patrick’s Day dinner, Paleo style. Nobody missed the potatoes or the soda bread filled with massive amounts of gluten.
- Homemade brined brisket turned Corned Beef
- Cabbage (simply steam for 30 minutes, butter and salt and pepper—Don’t mess with it if you want the best cabbage ever)
- Root Vegetable Colcannon
- Irish Soda Bread (gluten free)
- Salad (provided by one of my guests)
- St. Patrick’s Day Cup Cakes
This past weekend I made a birthday dinner for two very special friends of mine. Neither of them are on the Paleo lifestyle, but I am, and I cooked them a much raved over Paleo dinner. The dinner was a massive success with everyone very satisfied, and no one feeling bloated at the end of the meal.
- Rack of Lamb
- Sautéed Asparagus with Shallot and Lemon
- Cauliflower Cake (using a Paleo flour blend instead of the all purpose flour called for in the recipe
- Fluffy Bread
- Apple Pie Parfait
What I love about my friends is that we can have a lively conversation during dinner. I was invited, along with two other of my single, female friends, for a Valentine’s Day dinner. A potluck that was delicious with the hit being the apple pie parfait I made for dessert. The recipe for this is at the end of this post. Continue reading Be the Light of the World
. . . when you look at another person? Do you know that what you see in another person is a reflection of yourself? So if a person irritates you for any reason, look at yourself, and see if what irritates you in that person is something you have a tendency to do that you aren’t so proud of. The flip side of that coin is if you see beauty in another person then you see the same beauty in yourself. So, I ask you, wouldn’t you rather see the good in every one?

I seem to be posting mostly desserts lately, but this one is just too good not to post.
A great candy substitute for the holidays. Don’t be tempted to eat commercial candies that come in a box. This is an example that is in Russell Stover Dark Coconut Creams: Dark Chocolate (Sugar, Chocolate processed with alkali, cocoa butter, milk fat, soy lecithin/an emulsifier, vanilla, and vanilla/an artificial flavor) Corn Syrup, coconut with sodium metabisulfite, sugar, sorbitol, salt, and natural flavor.
