Hearty Sausage & Vegetable Soup

The weather report here is calling for our first possibly major winter storm of the season! We're busy today battening things down here, at our little cabin. We've got a nice big stack of dry wood and kindling ready to go by the woodstove, shovels by the door, flashlights and candles at the ready, some "power optional" projects and reading lined up, and a nice big pot of Hearty Sausage and Vegetable soup simmering on the stove...

Grain-Free Banana Bread

We've just returned to our cabin from a week-long, relaxing and fun camping retreat with a bunch of our music-loving friends! So much fun, and a great way to connect with nature, get some good quality face-to-face time, be creative, play music, enjoy the sun and then the glow of a campfire and music/stories against the darkness, and just let go of the stress and details of day to day life.

Zoodles Bolognese

One of my all-time favorite meals is Spaghetti Bolognese. Once we adopted the Paleo / Primal lifestyle (which advocates eliminating grains), one of our first challenges was to find a substitute for the pasta in this dish! We tried making zucchini noodles, or "zoodles", and have never looked back! Lightly sautéed for just a minute or two, …
