What are Nightshades?

It’s a dirty, dirty word around our house. It means pain, bloating, restless legs, eczema, and too many bathroom visits.

Lemony Breaded Roasted Broccoli | Dimpled Kichen

Lemony Breaded Roasted Broccoli with Faux-lic & Faux-nion

I have no idea why; but broccoli gets eaten by the double portions (usually with seconds) here in our home. Not complaining, as broccoli is FULL of good things, and delicious to boot, but it sometimes gets boring using our standard oil, salt&pepper roasted standby. This is a great option to shake things up, but still get them trees into your diet. Views: 1

Grandmama’s Stuffing

My Nana wasn’t the best cook. She used packets for gravy, boxes for potatoes, stuffing, and canned soup. She fed her family on a shoestring though; and it was a different time in the world.
