Happy Super Bowl to you all. We don’t have cable and we won’t be watching it, but I will be thinking of the more than one hundred and eleven million sport lovers that will be screaming and crying on Super Bowl Sunday. I can never remember if it’s basketball or baseball. But one thing I […]


Bubble & Squeak (Leftover Mash and Greens)

The first recipe for Bubble and Squeak was found in the early 1800’s, but it became most popular during WW2 due to rationing. It is the perfect way to use up the leftovers from a traditional roast dinner. It is just a combination of potato and greens.

Low Calorie Curly Fries

At my age (almost 50), I have to find low calorie alternatives for all the holiday treats we love to eat, or I am inclined to put on too much weight.  I then spend weeks trying to loose the extra pounds, and then another holiday arrives. There are just some things that I don’t ever eat, and deep […]
