I found years ago, that I get alot family accolades when I tweak up leftovers.  Then, these leftover tweaks, start becoming first run dinners..  Its funny how a couple happy faces at the table will motivate a mom.  I like to make a little extra meat and peppers and have it in a hot steamed […]

Warm Wilted Spinach Salad
January 6th, 2012Appetizers, Main Dishes, Salads, VegetarianDiscover Gluten Freedom 0 Comments

With bacon and eggs added, a warm, Wilted Spinach Salad can be a meal unto it self.  As a side, I will often omit the eggs.  We do not eat pork bacon, and no, we do not eat regular turkey bacon.  I prefer all natural, uncured turkey bacon.  It can be found in most stores […]
