Beef Bourguignon (French Beef Stew)

Three Days of Preparation, One Magnificent Feast The classic French beef stew, just marinated beef slowly braised in wine with vegetables, with pearl onions and mushrooms added just before serving. Worthy of a special occasion. Just making it may create an occasion! Real Food, Hearty & Filling. Classic French Home Cooking. Great for a Culinary "Project". Naturally Gluten Free.

Mashed Cauliflower (Low-Carb Mashed “Potatoes”)

What does it take to create nearly the same mouthfeel and flavor of traditional mashed potatoes, except low-calorie and low-carb? Ditching the potatoes! For anyone looking for a low-cal and low-carb substitute for potatoes, try mashing cooked cauliflower and turnips with the usual butter and milk plus a splash of Tabasco which – do not ask me how or why, it stumps me – makes all the difference in the taste. Choose Mashed Cauliflower (and all its variations) whenever a stew, a skillet supper, calls for something "under" to sop up the sauces and gravies. Whole Food, Simply Prepared, "Plain" But Perfect. Real Food, Fresh & Flexible. An Easy, Healthy Side Dish. Year-Round Kitchen Staple. Budget Friendly. Weeknight Easy, Weekend Special. Great for Meal Prep. Scales from Small Plates to Large Platters. Low Carb. Weight Watchers Friendly. Vegetarian & Easily Converted to Vegan. Naturally Gluten Free. So Good!!

Sugar-Free Chai Tea

Say hello to chai made at home, a DIY concoction of milky tea steeped with fresh ginger and Indian-style spices, cardamom, cinnamon, clove and black pepper. So brew a pot, then rewarm this cold-weather comfort drink throughout the week. Especially compared to sugary-sweet coffeehouse chai, my chai is either unsweetened or barely sweetened, it's all about the warm, wondrous spices. Real Food, Fresh & Flexible. Weight Watchers Friendly. Low Carb. Naturally Gluten Free. Great for Meal Prep.
