Homemade Sausage

I love making this homemade sausage because it’s so easy – simply mix the beef with the seasonings, spread in a pan, cover and bake. When the sausage is done, I cut it into squares and serve. Leftovers are great sautéed  in a little olive oil. This recipe works well with ground pork too, and possibly with chicken or turkey (though I haven’t tried that). Click for the recipe

Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin

Bacon wrapped pork tenderloin is amazing. Wrapping the pork in bacon not just enhances the flavor, but also ensures the pork stays super juicy. My roasted pork tenderloin is wonderful, but bacon wrapped is now my favorite way of preparing pork tenderloin. Click for the recipe

Gluten Free Blueberry Muffins

These wonderful gluten free blueberry muffins are fragrant and fluffy and just as good as wheat flour blueberry muffins. Since almond flour is not as absorbent as wheat flour, I use fewer blueberries in these gluten free blueberry muffins than I would use in wheat muffins. Click for the recipe

Vegan Ice Cream

These frozen treats are creamy, delicious, very healthy and easy to make. They contain berries, vanilla, ripe banana (for sweetness and creaminess) and coconut oil (for creaminess and a faint coconutty flavor). No added sugar whatsoever, although you could add 2 tablespoons honey if you wish. These frozen treats make a great dessert, but since they are so wholesome, I often serve them as an afternoon snack.
