Welcome!

Hi and thank you for visiting my blog. My name is Tina, I am 42 years old and married to a wonderful man named Robert. I live in the Cleveland, Ohio area with my husband and our two pugs, Koko and Lucy and a special kitty, named Trixie.

I am of Italian decent and love to cook not just for my family but for everyone! I have a lot of weeknight dinner guest and try to keep it casual but delicious! My Mom passed away a few years ago and was my great teacher.

In 2012 I have changed the way I eat. A real lifestyle change to be healthier, eat a nutrient dense diet and remove all processed foods, refined flours and sugars from our diet. I do cook a lot healthier than my Mom did and do a lot more vegetarian meals, poultry and fish. I'm trying to find a way to keep the traditions of family, friends and good food in my house always.

I plan to post my weekly menus, update with new recipes, health information and articles and how to eat mostly organic in an economical way. I will also periodically post personal updates of my journey to regain health and hope.

Farewell to Suki

Princess Suki Paul crossed over the rainbow bridge on Saturday, February 6, 2010. She was loyal companion, my best friend and just the best dog to ever cross my path. She was my child just as if I had birthed her myself. The imprint she has left on my heart will always be there. The lessons she taught me will be my life's mission. Love unconditionally, live in the moment, never hold grudges, green grass is meant to be rolled in and there is nothing better than cuddling with the ones you love! Rest in peace my precious princess!
Please take a moment and view this video of the life and times of Suki Paul
