Bacon Wrapped Turkey Meatballs w/ Low Sodium Marinara

Turkey Meatballs

Bacon Wrapped Turkey Meatballs

I am a manly man and try to lighten up our meals whenever possible. Meatballs are one meal that as my wife says can become “skinny” these are skinny meatballs with the added manly food bacon. We bake them, and then half way through we remove any fat from the muffin tin.

Steak Burritos From Leftovers

Steak Burrito

Steak Burritos

I love a manly beefy burrito. I especially love Steak Burritos. They have a different sort of bite versus a traditional burrito made with hamburger or chicken. What to do with leftover steak? Make Steak Burritos. Brilliant right? I have been off and on the Paleo diet and really fell off while making these burritos with a white flour tortilla. It happens, I try to eat as healthy as possible but when I reached into the refrigerator for tortillas the high fiber wheat tortillas were a wall.

Since I am just getting the hang of this blogging thing I forgot to take pictures of the steak itself. My wife (April) reminded me how pictures draw you into the post. Tonight I am preparing meatballs and am excited to take photos.

Kosher Dill Refrigerator Pickles

Kosher Dill Refrigerator Pickles

One of my favorite snacks to munch on our pickles. Making your own pickles could not be easier. When we lived on the farm we had an abundance of cucumbers, my wife made pickles a lot. We made many different varieties like sun pickles, probiotic pickles and sour pickles. The horseradish we grew in the garlic was a big part of pickle making….

Leftover Corn Beef Egg Scramble

Left Over Corn Beef

Leftover Corn Beef Egg Scramble

I love a good Corn Beef sandwich but usually my wife and I buy way more than we can eat. What to do with leftovers, right? Leftovers take over our fridge in a bad way. I love getting creative with leftovers and spices. I am a spice guru I must add. You will see a lot of spices in my recipes because we try to keep as much of the fat out as possible….
