Quick Refrigerator Pickles

My little bag garden is slowly churning out pickling and slicing cucumbers along with a few other assorted veggies and berries. Peppers are now growing and, hopefully, the zucchini and butternut squash will produce. They have lots of flowers but nothing much seems to be happening. There haven’t been enough cucumbers to pull out the canning equipment so I decided to make a batch of refrigerator pickles. Just as tastey as the home canned type […] read more

Now imagine, when discussions on various diets come up, that you talk about low carb (that’s LOW not NO carb) or paleo. Think of all the dirty looks you might get, the eye rolling, the comments about how completely unhealthy it is to follow either one of these diets/ways of eating and then imagine what is said when you […] read more
