Angel Hair with Creamy Vegan Mushroom Sauce

This deliciousness came about after I bought a package of mushrooms and then promptly forgot what I was planning to do with them… it came back to me too late… stuffed mushrooms, that was it… Anyway, this was a tasty and filling bowl of comfort […]

Risotto with Mushrooms and Kale

Risotto with Mushrooms and Kale

I love the idea of supporting small, local farms. So, with that in mind, we recently began subscribing to regular delivery of CSA boxes. Our first box arrived last week and in it was an ingredient I was unfamiliar with – red Russian kale. This […]

Slow Cooked Mac and Cheese

Slow Cooked Mac and Cheese

Yesterday, as I was staring into the pantry and thinking of what to make for the kids’ breakfast, I realized we had a variety of partially used packages of pasta…. elbow, rigatoni, rotini, ditalini… you get the idea. I decided to first eliminate the mini farfalle and […]

Apple and Blue Cheese Crostini

Apple and Blue Cheese Crostini

I’ve been kicking around the idea of serving these for Thanksgiving and decided to do a test run last night.  What I love is the simplicity of the flavors and also the way you could put everything together in advance or just spread out the […]

Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms

Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms

Because I had three full bags of baby spinach in the fridge that I needed to use or lose, spinach was the theme of last night’s dinner.  We had a delicious spinach and tortellini soup, more on that another day, and these little mushroom bites. […]
