Who doesn’t like Beef Stroganoff? I don’t think I have met a person yet.
Some interesting facts about this comfort food dish.
The dish originated in Russia, not in Germany like I originally thought. Although the name is associated with Count Paul Stroganoff (Pavel Alexandrovich Stroganov), a 19th Century Russian Diplomat, the actual origins of the dish have never been confirmed.
The basic original recipe ingredients have not changed over time: beef, mushrooms and sour cream.
Elena Molokhovets’ classic Russian cookbook, A Gift to Young Housewives (1861) gives the first known recipe for Beef Stroganoff which involves lightly floured beef cubes (not strips) […]
Do you ever get those temptations to have something sweet, but you just don’t want to make a whole batch of something because you don’t want it sitting in your kitchen screaming your name all week?
Well, I get that way sometimes. HA!
My daughter has been finding all these recipes online recently about something-in-a-mug. One serving of something, and one serving only.
I thought to myself, what an ingenious idea! Let me create some P3 friendly recipes like that!

This debunks the theory that you can’t have much veggies while on a true ketogenic diet, or you can’t put yourself into nutritional ketosis with veggies. I say, bah humbug. Don’t ever tell me you can’t do something.
I do have to admit however, that this is awfully GREEN – it needs some color, […]
Who doesn’t love Gyro’s???
The sauce that makes the whole thing is something called Tzatziki. When this stuff is made right, it’s to die for, quite seriously.
Since most of us don’t do wheat anymore, pita is off the menu, so the next best thing is a Gyro Salad. My local Greek Restaurant makes a killer Gyro Salad – I have yet been able to replicate the meat and it seems that all Greek chefs don’t like to share.
Scares me sometimes.
HA! I digress.
A grilled meat salad topped with this sauce is something to be treasured. It’s simply divine.
The trick with […]
Who doesn’t miss baked potatoes? Come on, admit it. You can, I won’t tell anyone.
But seriously, when you go to a good steakhouse and you want something that compliments it, consider this instead. In fact, this will work with almost any type of steamed veggies.
And why wait for going out? Make this a main course in a meal at home. It has everything you need in a complete HIGH FAT meal. Make yourself a small chopped raw salad on the side and you have yourself a conglomeration of different textures, tastes, and temperatures to make for a very […]
