Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I hit it out of the park tonight….with such a simple recipe. One of my life long’s dreams is to get Hubby to appreciate Brussels sprouts. Try as I may, my attempts never registered on his “yum” meter. He basically would eat them out of obligation with maybe a grunt of recognition. No grunts tonight….only […]

RoastedZucchiniGratin

I have a serious problem. When I go to local farmer’s markets this time of year, I can’t control myself. I buy everything! My head goes into a spin – “Oh, I’m going to make this” “Look how beautiful and FRESH these veggies are!” “I haven’t made anything with these in a long time…” And […]

Citrus Beet Salad

Coming back from vacation and rolling right into Memorial Day, I needed to stop the madness. We were in D.C. and oh my(!), does that city have the restaurants! We never had a bad meal and enjoyed the diversity in the cuisines. Add to that – the ribs and hot dogs of Memorial Day weekend […]

Peas and Parsley Orzo

If I had to make one thing for my Hubby for the rest of his life – it would be peas. Preferably peas and pasta. With the spring vegetables sneaking into the farmer’s markets and grocery stores, fresh peas have made an appearance, and I have been searching for a new peas and pasta recipe. […]

Zucchini Quinoa Salad

What is it about Sunday nights? Every Sunday night, I try to make up for the sins of the week. Oh – and this week was sinful.  We had our 3 5-year old grandsons for 2 days and it was pizza, hamburgers, more pizza and bacon. What was I supposed to do? Eat yogurt when […]

kale

New Year. New Day. Clean slate. Right? I’ve been cleaning for days – the tree is down. Presents are put away….and I’m attacking the frig. As Hubby left this morning, I shouted out – “Expect healthy tonight!” not knowing what I was going to make. I knew as soon as I opened the frig and […]

corn

Wait! Stop! Summer’s not over yet! There’s still corn… and tomatoes…. and more  corn…. As summer slowly dwindles into fall, I find myself hanging on to the last of summer’s harvest. The family is a bit burned out with ears of corn served at every meal – it was time to try something different. This […]

slices

This is such a fun way to cook a baked potato! It’s a cross between a baked potato, potato skins and fried potatoes. And – you can be so creative with them! I’m gonna give you the basics and you can create your own tater! Start with a basic baking potato (sweet potatoes would work […]

greenbeans

Ah. Summer’s bounty. I can’t keep up with all the wonderful things I want to make. Fresh peaches are ripening on my counter. Beets are waiting to be roasted in my refrigerator. And all those tomatoes! Herbs from the garden. Fresh green beans. As I write this tonight, I see on the news how the […]

We’re gonna make this quick tonight. The weather is so beautiful and the deck is calling my name. Dinner tonight is simple. Burgers and side salads. This is one of them. So simple…but necessary to share. I found it in a little corner of a Cooking Light magazine. After making it, I knew I had […]
