Parmesan Sausage & Potatoes

I dreamed up a little concoction the other day, but I never dreamed it would be this easy and fast. Savory venison sausage and potatoes covered in melted Parmesan cheese, and fully prepared in a single skillet. We ate this for supper, but for the “potatoes for breakfast crowd” this could easily be served as…

Green Beans with Toasted Pecans

From time to time I bring you delicious side dishes that really aren’t wild, but go really well with wild things. Today I’m bringing you one that is semi-wild. Green Beans with Toasted Pecans. It’s semi-wild because Momma and Daddy collected these pecans from their backyard pecan tree, after saving them from the squirrels, and…

Green Detox Juice

I love escaping reality for a few days and indulging in delicious local cuisine.  I never say ‘no’ to two desserts while on vacation because, I mean, isn’t that what vacation is for? But coming home is never easy.  My body always has a tantrum when I return.  The lack of sleep, lack of exercise and healthy…

How To Quit Drinking Soda

One of the assignments in my nutrition class last semester was to make an 8-week behavioral change related to my diet. Immediately, I knew what I wanted to change: no more soda! Growing up, my mom only let me drink soda as a treat. I liked it, but I didn’t crave it. Even in college,…

Healthy Creamy Cauliflower Sauce

So, you know those days when you come home after an exhausting day and all you can think about is devouring a giant bowl of mac and cheese? Does that happen to anyone else? Mac and cheese is probably my favorite food. That, and chocolate. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of fat in mac and cheese….

Banana Muffins With Cinnamon Sugar Crumble
