2 # beef stew meat
3-4 yellow onions, sliced
1 (8 oz) package petite or button mushrooms
1/3 C gluten free all purpose flour
1-2 T coconut oil
1 C dry, red wine
1/2 t Thyme
1/2 t Marjoram
1 t Sea salt or pink Himalayan salt
2-4 C jasmine, basmati, or brown rice or quinoa, cooked
1) Heat large skillet and add coconut oil.
2) Add onions and cook until tender. Remove and set aside.
3) Add stew meat and turn to brown.
3) Sprinkle with flour, marjoram, thyme, black pepper, and salt.
4) Add 1 C of dry, red wine (I used some Malbec I just happened to have on hand ;-))
5) Combine ingredients well. Reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes.
6) Add back the onions and then the mushrooms, simmer 15 minutes longer or until mushrooms are the right doneness for you and meat is cooked through.

This is an easy recipe my family enjoyed along with several other families during camping outings. The guys would cook huge batches outside in a couple pots and the kids thought it was fun to eat at the picnic table using newspapers as our plates. It’s very low maintenance and clean up couldn’t be easier! Here’s a single family-sized version that can be done on the stove top.
3 oz Old Bay Seasoning
2 tbsp. salt
1 ring Kielbasa or Turkey sausage, cut into 1” pieces
8 ears of corn on the cob, cut in half
4 handfuls of pea pods
2 lbs. unshelled uncooked shrimp
8 small, red potatoes, quartered
Optional side: French bread and butter
The amount of items above can easily be modified to your taste.
Cover the table with several layers of newspaper.
In large stock pot, fill it half way with water. Bring to a boil.
Add the old bay seasoning and salt and boil for 5 minutes.
Add kielbasa. Boil for 20 minutes.
DIY Sausage Seasoning Blend
1-1/2 t salt
3-1/2 t paprika
2/3 t garlic powder
1/3 t fennel seed
1 t ground black pepper
¼ t crushed red pepper

2 heads broccoli, stems removed
1 head cauliflower, stems removed
2.5 C shredded carrots
½ C Sunflower Seeds
1 C currants, craisins, or other dried berry (I use a ½ C to keep sugar down)
½ C finely chopped fresh parsley
4-6 T fresh lemon juice, to taste
Salt & Pepper (about ½ t salt is what I’ve used); lots of pepper
Pure maple syrup, to drizzle before serving.
In a food processor (or by hand) process the broccoli until fine. Add into large bowl. Then process the cauliflower until fine and add to same bowl. Shred carrots and add. Then, stir in seeds, dried fruit and all the seasonings. Drizzle a bit of syrup on right before serving.
Keeps well in air tight container in the refrigerator for up to a week

All of us have busy filled lives, some with family obligations, not to mention working full time. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to enjoy all that you have created?
None of what Tiffany has created came by accident and I believe the same or more is possible for you, regardless of your current situation. She has lived through being a victim of sexual molestation as a child, eating disorders, food addictions, being 175 pounds overweight, moving clear across the world to a place she didn’t know anyone except my family, and having to start over numerous times in my life. She continuously felt that others were responsible for her happiness. She found herself in a constant struggle.
So how did she get from there to where she is today, and how does this apply to you? Tiffany learned that through self-love you can do anything you put your mind...
