Hello and welcome to Helpgoat. I will try to be brief in my blog posts – as I think we all spend too much time reading endless chatter on the internet and not enough time out in the real world. We spend too much time comparing ourselves and our lives with the lives and personas… Continue reading The Birth of Helpgoat
So, I just made (and ate) this. It was so delicious I had to post immediately before I forgot how I made it. Ingredients: Potatoes – about 7 medium sized Olive Oil Onions – I used 2 medium sized Cauliflower – I used 1 whole head Bacon, Prosciutto or Ham (I used Prosciutto as it… Continue reading Paleo Easter Casserole – aka scalloped potatoes with bacon, prosciutto or ham (with sneaky cauliflower)- Gluten Free/ Dairy Free
Part of the idea of Helpgoat is to find a way to use social media to encourage helping each other in the real-world, with real-world social interaction. We don’t want to keep people “engaged” as long as possible with our on-line content.

They would have Twinkies, Ding-dongs, Little Debbies and Star Crunches. I would occasionally get the homemade chocolate chip or oatmeal cookie. My friends would have their… Continue reading Save the Planet with Soap Nuts
One thing I’m using this Blog for is to record, catalogue and share my favorite recipes. “Spaghetti Sauce” (as we used to call it in my house growing up) is one of the first things I learned to make on my own as a kid. I’ve made a few adjustments to the recipe over the… Continue reading Veggie-Packed Bolognese Sauce
As I sit here wishing I had the ingredients that I need to make chicken soup for my son (who is home sick from school today and too sick to be carted off to the supermarket), I find myself thinking – wouldn’t it be great if I could ask someone to pick up a chicken… Continue reading Why is it so Hard to ask for Help?
