Loaded Buffalo Chicken and Bacon Sweet Potato Casserole

I posted a recipe similar to this a while back and it has become somewhat of a family favorite so I decided to do a revamp.  This time around I amped up the flavors in the sauce and added sliced red onions and bacon.  Just a few tweaks took this average casserole and transformed it […]

Spaghetti Squash Tuna Casserole

I think most of us know by now that spaghetti squash makes a great substitute for pasta.  Well, this tuna casserole is no exception.  If you grew up with the “classic” tuna casserole (noodles, cream of mushroom soup, tuna and canned peas), then this casserole will bring back old memories but with a new and healthier twist!  […]

Cashew Chicken Liver Stir Fry

I know, I know…another liver post!  This one has an Asian twist to it and is delish and super easy make!  The most important thing to remember when cooking liver is not to overcook it.  It cooks up very quickly.  Give it a try!   Ingredients: 1 lb grass-fed chicken livers, cut up (pat dry […]

Primal Meatloaf

I think we’ve all had an experience with a dried out meatloaf and we wonder where we went wrong!  I can, with great confidence, guarantee that this meatloaf will not disappoint and could very well become a family favorite.  This meatloaf is so moist and the sauce on top is like icing on a cake…they just go together! The […]

Sausage with Cabbage Slaw and Apples

Sausage, cabbage and onions together in a meal is the epitome of your traditional hearty meal.  But to take this dish to the next level and add another layer of flavor, I like to throw some apples in the mix!  What I also love about this dish is that the ingredients cook very quickly so your meal […]

Mexican Chili with Tomatillos

Chili season has rolled around once again and I wanted to put a little spin on this recipe.  I already had gound pork thawed in the refrigerator so I used that for my meat but you could also use beef or turkey.  I also had some tomatillos on hand so my mind went to Mexican!  If you […]
