The Best of 2013

Happy New Year!  I hope your year is off to a fantastic start!  I always like to spend the last couple days of the year reflecting on the past year and reviewing all the amazing things that happened throughout the year.  It really sets the tone for the upcoming year.  And this year was no […]

Tofu Sausage and Rice

I didn’t actually have a plan for this dish.  I hadn’t been to the store yet for our weekly groceries so I just dug through the refrigerator to see what I could throw together and this is the result.  It was actually surprisingly good too!  Mr. Real Food and I both agreed this was a […]

Slow cooker Lentil Soup

It’s no secret that I love, love, love my crock pot.  So any meal that has only a couple of real food ingredients that just get dumped in the crock pot is the meal for me!  This morning I spent about 15 minutes dicing carrots, onion, and garlic, threw a few more things in and […]
