Vanilla Softserve (in 5 mins)

I love ice cream, but my doctor guiding me through healing says sugar is the devil. I agree because sugar is tempting and seems to seep back into our lives sneakily. But!! I still love ice cream, so I am loving this banana ice cream trend on the scene. I tried the recipe from some…

Roasted Beef and Butternut Soup

Have you ever come to the point in your refrigerator where you have too little of this to make that, and pieces of things that are perfectly good, but you just don’t know what to do with them? I made a veggie tray over the weekend and have a few measily celery stalks leftover, a…
