Green Beans with Pesto

Green Beans with Pesto

Don’t you love how sometimes the simplest dishes can be so tasty? Our youngest turned three yesterday so I made some of her favorites for dinner last night.  Slow cooker mac & cheese (more on that another day), honey drizzled carrot fries (another big hit) […]

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. […]

Cheesy Broccoli Twice Baked Potatoes

Cheesy Broccoli Twice Baked Potatoes

I love a big baked potato for dinner!   Aside from the classic-style buttered potato, BBQ vegetarian chicken had been my go-to favorite, until now. Served these up with sides of Clean Out the Fridge Soup, here, for an easy and tasty dinner! 5 Russet potatoes 1c […]

Late Summer Garden Minestrone

Late Summer Garden Minestrone

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 […]

Goat Cheese Quinoa with Spinach and Pine Nuts

Goat Cheese Quinoa with Spinach and Pine Nuts

It was one of those days when very little went according to plan and I was *this* close to letting the pizza man handle dinner… but then I remembered the gorgeous okra and corn on the cob just bought two days ago at the farmers […]

Garlic and Herb Mushroom Tacos

Garlicky Cauliflower Gratin

Garlicky Cauliflower Gratin

I’ve been experimenting with cauliflower quite a bit lately with this gratin dish being the latest creation.  As always, I used non-dairy butter.  Served over Basmati rice, with a side of sautéed asparagus, this was a delicious meal! 8 cloves garlic, minced 2 TBSP butter, […]

Beer Braised Collard Greens

Beer Braised Collard Greens

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Today is March 17th, which means today is all about all things green. People are clad in green, wearing shamrocks, and drinking green beer so it seems only right that today’s recipe is one for, you guessed it – greens!

Vegetable Tortellini Stew

Vegetable Tortellini Stew

Open a bottle of red and get ready to make a hearty and delicious stew!  This is what we had two nights ago along with some herbed biscuits for dipping.  Don’t worry about leftovers.  This stew freezes really well! 2 TBSP olive oil 1lb. vegan sausage […]

Goat Cheese Stuffed Pepper Bites

Goat Cheese Stuffed Pepper Bites

At a recent event with my husband, there were trays of bite size appetizers made up of all sorts of complicated combinations floating around.  The one we both seemed to enjoy most though was the simplest.  A little spicy, a little sweet, a little creamy, […]
