Vegan BBQ Baked Beans

Vegan BBQ Baked Beans

Remember how I was all, “Summer’s coming!” in my last post? Well, I may have been prematurely excited because it’s still cold but that is not stopping me from looking ahead to summertime and all the classic picnic and potluck favorites we love, including these […]

Margarita Cocktails

It’s actually, finally, maybe, beginning to feel like summer could be is on it’s way here – eventually. We’re in that awkward in-between time where people truly don’t know how to dress. Just the other day, I was in a short sleeve top, jeans, and […]

Baby Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta

Baby Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta

Black olives are kind of a big deal with all the girls in this house.  Littlest One insists (and I am happy to accommodate) on double olives when we order pizza while my Big Girl inhales them almost daily as an afternoon snack.  So, adding […]

Baked Tex-Mex Rice Casserole

Baked Tex-Mex Rice Casserole

One of the many things I love about summertime is how we’re able to enjoy sitting outside on the back deck for dinner almost nightly. We chat while we eat, occasionally play a board game after… most evenings are peaceful and pleasant. Unless Littlest Child […]

We’re on the very edge of fall here and I’ve already been craving heartier soups and stews lately.  Farmers’ markets are overflowing with okra, tomatoes, carrots…. add to that, my little backyard garden is bursting with herbs. This soup creation is exactly what I was […]

Classic Coleslaw

Classic Coleslaw

To me, coleslaw is a perfect addition to any summertime cookout and was delicious paired with our BBQ Baked Beans last week.  What I like about this one is that the cabbage retains just the right amount of crunch and flavor because it’s not drenched […]

BBQ Baked Beans

BBQ Baked Beans

I have used this recipe for baked beans every summer for the last several years.  Okay, not this *exact* recipe; the previous one included meat.  We’ve now had this vegetarian version twice and, as always, it’s delicious! 2 (15 oz.) cans baked beans 1/2c brown […]

4th of July Flag Toast and Watermelon Stars

4th of July Flag Toast and Watermelon Stars

4th of July food has historically been all about lunch around here, with leftovers available for grazing throughout the remainder of the day.  This year, we switched things up a bit by going out for lunch and saving the big All-American feast for dinner.  But […]

Rhubarb Crisp

Rhubarb Crisp

Rhubarb is one of those vegetables I would always bypass in the grocery store because, really, I had no clue what to do with it.  I had never even tasted it before and neither had my husband.  Apparently, his mom used to make rhubarb pies […]
