WORLD’S BEST SOUP

“Finding a friend with the same mental disorder.  Priceless!” I’m a sucker for recipes, especially if they promise to be over-the-top delicious.  I’m also a believer, (see gullible) which explains a lot about my dating experiences.  I either believed I could make him happy or I believed that he was perfect.  I’m older, wiser, and…

CRAB STUFFED AVOCADO

“There are better things ahead than any we leave behind.”  C S Lewis At last, another recipe and enough of this endless prattle.  Love this recipe because it has one of my favorite ingredients, food.  Also, it has avocado, which I generally spell incorrectly.  Avocado is not only delicious but also contains vitamin E, which…

GLUTEN FREE TORTILLAS

“Do you know the Spanish word for sushi?  It’s bait.” I must admit that my favorite food is southwestern.  I love refried beans.  They are versatile and nutritious.  And black beans mixed with rice make a complete protein.  Is that plate of Mexican food looking better and better?

CARROT AND CELERY PATE

“If it ain’t broke …” While trying to nudge my eating habits toward healthy, I sometimes purchase food items that are “good” for me that end up languishing in the fridge until they die of natural causes.  Two of these items are carrots and celery. I truly enjoy these two foods in soup, but when…

PIZZA BALLS

“Buy me pizza and tell me I’m pretty.” Edit above quote – pizza would be enough.  Pretty is such a relative term.  I’m me, and that, also, is enough. Love these pizza balls!  They satisfy my craving for pizza without the carb-laden crust and don’t require precooking anything. INGREDIENTS: 1 lb ground beef 2/3 cups…
