This is based on an Italian peasant dish. It’s made with a little of this and a little of that – leftovers that have been turned into a delicious meal. The original has plenty of milk and cheese, but our version is dairy-free. We needed to keep the eggs, though – so [...]
This has been a staple weekend lunch/light dinner for us since we started eating meat
a little olive oil
about 1 1/3 lb sweet italian turkey sausage (the kind that isn’t already cooked)
1 medium onion, chopped
2+ cloves garlic, minced/pressed
half a bell pepper, if available, chopped
1 pkg sliced mushrooms (we like baby bellas especially)
1 14oz can beans
This doesn’t quite qualify as a recipe, but it’s a delicious lunch, and very quick and easy!
1 can or similar equivalent lump crabmeat
1/2 package guacamole (I like the pressure sealed ones from Costco or Trader Joe’s) – or 1 fresh avacado, diced
Put 1-2 servings worth of pasta in a largish bowl. Add guacamole [...]

This is barely a recipe, because it is soooo easy [...]
I think we’ve perfected this! The original recipe for Crab Cakes and Salmon Cakes were egg-free and more delicate. This Crabbie Pattie is sturdier, and has eggs. It would still be suitable for a low-carb diet, though.
4 6 oz cans crab (the cheap kind works fine) You could also use 2 cans [...]
I grew up with a fairly large Italian extended family. We ate lasagna with every holiday meal, my grandmother and I would make ravioli together from scratch, and we would have big family meals with all the aunts and uncles. One of the dishes that was served at the big family meals is [...]
