Tomato Soup_

Today is a gift. I normally don’t get days like this where I have the whole day to myself. In fact, I’m still in my pajamas! I’ve been spending the day tapping into my creative spirit and that spirit works best in pajamas. It’s a day to celebrate summer and the warm breeze blowing through […]

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 […]

Charred Corn Salad

Yes-sirree…it’s here! It’s officially summer and along with summer comes… Fresh produce from local farmer’s markets…especially corn! Here in Ohio – corn is king and it’s a celebration when farm fresh corn arrives. I’m celebrating it’s arrival with this colorful healthy charred corn salad that I found from the Kitchenette blog. It’s so easy to […]

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 […]

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 […]

thymepotatoes

Why? Why do what we do to sweet potatoes? We cover them with marshmallows…with sugar…with syrup….brown sugar…and butter. Why can’t we just let them be their own sweet self? Sweet potatoes have been so misunderstood. Every Thanksgiving we are forced to deal the latest sugary-coated recipe. Here’s a recipe where the potatoes rule…enhanced only by […]

corn chowder

We are in the height of corn season here. We can’t get enough of it – or so my Hubby thinks! Every time I send him to the farmer’s market for corn – he comes home with the twice the amount I ask for! “Honey, we need six ears of corn.” He comes home with […]
