Cumin Garlic Sauerkraut

Mashed Curry White Sweet Potatoes

I am always preaching to people to not go grocery shopping when they are hungry or in a hurry and yesterday I failed to take my own advice. I was in a super hurry and instead of getting white potatoes I grabbed Jersey white sweet […]

Pulled Beef Tongue Stuffed Zucchini

Beef tongue, round two! Remember a few months ago when Sassy made Beef Tongue Tacos for her friends? She could not stop raving about how good the beef tongue was so of course I had to try it.

It’s no secret Pearl loves her a good cocktail. Especially when it includes tequila. What she doesn’t love are those cocktails containing artificial colors, sweeteners, and chemicals #aintnobodygottimeforthat. This little concoction is colorful, tasty, and contains all real food ingredients but it is still alcohol so don’t over do it! Check out Nutrition Genius Radio Episode #25 Blame it on the ALCOHOL for more information on alcohol and how much you can safely have

Enjoy!. (more…)
