Fish and vege frittata

Fish and vege frittata

I was eating vegetable latkes every morning for breakfast and I finally decided it was time to come up with an alternative dish. Since there really isn’t a good amount of protein in my vegetable pancakes I wanted to create something that contained not only vegetables but a good source of protein. I looked in my refrigerator for inspiration and I found some.

I had purchased and cooked some Continue reading

Caesar dressing for…well, pretty much anything!

Caesar salad my way

Caesar salad my way, romaine, spinach, parmesan, caramelized onions, Faux’caccia crumbs, Caesar dressing and bits of Alaskan salmon

I love Caesar salad so I decided to create this Caesar dressing. It is really delicious and because you are making it from scratch, you can adjust the ingredients to your preferences. Not only do I put it on romaine but I have been known to slather it on beef roast, turkey and salmon. Just get creative!

I buy a bunch of organic romaine at least once a week and then I go to town. You can vary the ingredients to the salad depending on your mood or depending on what you have available. I have eaten it with salmon, panéed turkey cutlets, grilled chicken, steak, different kinds of nuts, with parmesan, without parmesan and with or without thinly sliced red onion or my favorite, caramelized onion. I don’t eat bread anymore so I used this Faux’caccia to create delicious, although not super crunchy, paleo croutons. Don’t thank me, Sonia, from The Healthy Foodie came up with this one.

And then there was turkey soup

Turkey soup

Turkey soup

I love soup! My B blood type diet recommends not eating chicken. So since I love soup so much and I used to make many versions with chicken, I had to come up with a replacement. TURKEY!

This is the first turkey soup I have ever made but it is a winner! And it meets the requirements of paleo. You don’t have to use any special kind of turkey.
However, I recommend Continue reading

Sweet potato hash, you’re gonna love it!

Sweet potato hash

Sweet potato hash, perfect for any meal

This is my new favorite meal. It is pretty much a go to for me. It is super simple to make and both the flavor and texture are pretty amazing. I have to say I was pretty surprised when I first tasted the results.

The sweet potatoes kind of caramelize, while the zucchini stays relatively firm. The diced onion and garlic just adds to the complexity. The thyme sort of boosts the flavor of the whole dish. I just love it, Continue reading

This roasted tomato sauce is good on anything, even your finger!

Earlier in my life, I was in the food industry. I have owned two fine dining restaurants and a gourmet food company where I created all of the products. Eventually I sold it. I’ve managed several small gourmet establishments. I have been hired twice to save a failing food business. I was the baker at an upscale seafood restaurant. I was also the chef in Dayton’s first vegetarian restaurant. My job history has been varied and with each position I took my skills to the next level. Last year I started a blog called Meals Alone. I found myself single after 23 years and committed myself to “make lemonade out of lemons.” I spent many hours creating recipes for singles, couples and empty nesters. I believe that everyone needs to share a meal with someone special, especially if Continue reading
