    I am so sorry, but I am #’s 67 AND 68. When I did #67 I forgot to put the name of the recipe. So I listed it again. I would delete #67 if I could. Please feel free to delete it if you have the time. This carnival is a great idea! Thanks!

    I linked up a post about why I keep TVP in my pantry as a replacement for chop meat. Both as a way to save money and to cut fat & cholesterol in our diet.

      Hi Mama Kelly, unfortunately, I had to remove this entry as TVP (textured vegetable protein) is loaded with MSG and anti-nutrients such as phytic acid and is a very very highly processed food. It does not qualify as “Real Food”.

        I replaced the recipe with a crockpot lentil and rice dish that had no processed ingredients. My apologies.

    This is my first time joining in Monday Mania! Thanks for hosting!! I shared my Mahi Mahi Lettuce Wraps #64

    Such a great way to use crunchy romaine lettuce & have a lighter dinner.

    Hi Sarah,
    Thanks for hosting!
    I’m sharing a recipe for my family’s favorite salad, Caeser Salad. I put plenty of anchovies and extra cream in the dressing – croutons optional. Plus if you need a dairy free version the dressing is just as delicious without the cream and Parmesan.

    Making up another batch of Rice Pudding today since we ate up the last batch so quickly! I have an allergy to cane sugar and sweeten all my recipes with honey, maple syrup or palm sugar…or a combination of the 3.

    I am a new blogger but I am really enjoying the connections I am making. I plan on doing some serious crusing here during naptime for the little ones. I linked up to my blender omelet recipe because it is wicked fast and I make breakfast (or lunch) for ten kids in just ten minutes or so. I give milk and fruit to round it out and it is the highlight of the week when we have these! Thanks for hosting!

    Hi Sarah,

    Today I posted a recipe for scones. The scones are so quick to make if you have food processor and the kids really enjoy them. It is a great way to use up some raw milk that might have soured. Often I make a double batch of the dry ingredients and save one batch in the refrigerator, then a couple a days later it is so easy to make a batch of scones for cold hungry kids. What a treat with some homemade hot chocolate.

    Hi Sarah! Today I am sharing my new recipe for Banana Walnut Cookies. This recipe is gluten free, but can be made with “regular” flour if you don’t have an issue with gluten.
    This recipe has cinnamon chips in it – I had never used them before. Yum!
    Thanks for hosting!

    Another great week of hosting Sarah. I wanted to share a natural version of Red Velvet Cake made with roasted shredded beets instead of that horrendous red food coloring. The earthiness of beet to dark deep chocolate is a perfect fudgy match. I look forward to everyone’s post!

    Today’s post is our favorite version’s of granola–living (raw) version…as well a baked version. Very, very yummy! Much more frugal, and healthy to make your own then to purchase it in the store. Hope you all enjoy!

    Happy Monday! I hope the idea that soda is bad and that it should be abandoned is old news to most everyone but here’s yet another reason to avoid the stuff like the plague. If it’s brown, flush it down…guess this applies to soda as well! ha.ha. Thanks for reading and thanks for sharing. Looking forward to reading everyone’s posts.

    Thanks for doing this again, Sarah. I have linked my super simple coconut milk recipe. There is a more complicated way to get real coconut milk and even coconut flour from the same process, but this is the “easy peasy” way to do it and make more time for other things. My kind of “make your own” technique. Hope you and your readers like it!

    I have so enjoyed reading your posts and even put one up on my facebook fan page this past week. I so appreciate the opportunity to network with like minded bloggers.
