    Thanks so much for hosting this monday mania site. It has some really great ideas. I posted my newest casserole recipe, Beef and Bean Casserole. My family loved it and didn’t even know it was good for them!

    This roundup makes me look forward to Mondays:)

    Today, I’ve shared a Carrot Basil Soup recipe. Depending on your food preferences, it is yummy as is with no fats added, but is basic enough for any additions you want to make. For example, my daughter can’t handle dairy, but can Ghee. So we’ve added a Table Spoon of that to this recipe and it adds a delicious level of richness.

    Best, Holli

    Happy Monday Sarah! I shared my recipe for Grilled Chicken Chopped Salad With Curry Dressing. This is an amazing salad that takes a little bit of time to cut everything up, but it is so worth it for the flavor!

    Thanks for hosting! Today I shared a post on rendering beef tallow and using it to make tasty fries. Did you know McDonald’s used to fry in beef tallow years ago? My husband has been pining for those fires for years, now he has them. :-)

    Sharing our weekly muffin recipe — this times it’s Apple Nut Muffins from my tried and true Betty Crocker’s Cookbook. Betty taught me how to cook, but she sure didn’t teach me anything about feeding my family nutritiously, so we’ve substituted healthy ingredients and baked up a muffin to write home about (or at least to blog and share about!). Thanks for hosting! ~Lisa

    Hi Sarah, I shared my post about gluten sensitivity testing. It covers who should get tested and why testing is important, along with some personal stories of people who were sick and got better on the right diet. Hope you have a great week.
