I was determined to make a vegetable soup where my husband didn't ask "wgere the meat?" I did it! Though, he did mention that you could put chicken in it ...
Tis the season for zucchini and squash! I love this time of year when people give you all of their extra squash and zucchini because they always grow too much! You would think they’d learn, but I’m glad they don’t! You can pretty much do anything you want with squash and zucchini. Especially yellow squash. I’m [...]
Here’s a simple dish for you to try! Plus, everyone will love it! Who doesn’t enjoy chicken with delicious spices, smothered in salsa and all wrapped up in a tortilla shell? Talk about a simple twist on a dish everyone already likes! This is a perfect “full spectrum” dish. It would work for nights when you need [...]
This beautiful plate of seemingly brown rice came from white rice, can you believe it? Brown rice can take a long time to cook and, for me anyway, sometimes is harder on my system. I’m sensitive, give me a break! I LOVE the nutty flavor of brown rice though, so what does a girl do? [...]
Wow! It’s been two months since I have posted! I don’t have as good an excuse as Becca – her having birthed a human and all – but I have been prepping for and taking a three week vacation, and that has consumed my life for well over a month. My family traveled from Wisconsin [...]
Ok, so here is the most rich, delicious, sticky caramel popcorn you will ever have in your life. It is derived from a very basic, run of the mill recipe (which is still ridiculously delicious, don’t get me wrong) that I found online. How my version came along was, of course, because I was out of [...]
This is one of my new favorites! It’s fun, easy to make, a great main dish yet it pairs up with so many things to make a nice side dish as well. You can put chicken in it to make it extra hearty or you can leave it out to make it vegetarian leaving it [...]
This is a treat I remember having at home growing up. I remember bringing Peanut Butter on Celery to school to share with my class and having it as a snack when I got home. I also remember watching my mom using a knife to put all the peanut butter in the center and [...]
As you can see, this is not a veggie burger. I call it a Garden Burger because it is jam packed with things you get from your garden this time of year. You wouldn’t believe it, but there’s onion, yellow squash, zucchini, basil, and garlic in there! Isn’t it pretty???
This recipe seriously came out of nowhere! The night I made this I asked my husband if he wanted cereal for dinner, because that’s how much I felt like cooking at the moment. He said he wanted real food, yet we had to leave for a softball game in 45 minutes. I was left to [...]
