Salad with Sauteed Veggies

’ve probably mentioned this before too. I love salads. I’m not always looking for a complex gourmet meal to satisfy me. Sometimes, all I want is a bowl of farm-fresh veggies. I can’t exactly serve a steak and potatoes kind of guy a bowl of lettuce for dinner and expect him to be happy. I […]

A Lotta Bit Delicious Spaghetti Squash Soup

Seriously, this soup is a lotta bit delicious. Hubby came home last night and asked what was for dinner. “Spaghetti Squash Soup and Dinner Rolls” came my reply. Hubby was a lotta bit not amused. He told me that telling a guy to eat spaghetti squash is like asking a girl to go to a […]

Tomato, Basil and Sweet Corn Soup

Let’s talk about sweet corn. I love it. Yellow corn. White corn. Bi-color corn. I don’t discriminate. And tomatoes. Let’s talk about them too. If you don’t like tomatoes, it’s because you’ve never bit into a ripe juicy slice. I think the smell of vine ripe tomatoes might be the best smell in the world. […]

Stuffed Mushrooms

Delicious and healthy, these stuffed mushrooms made an easy appetizer or side dish.

Mixed Berry Crumble

Perfect for summer with any and all of your favorite berries. This dessert will wow your senses. Top with vanilla ice cream for a truly indulgent treat.

Lemon Glazed Pomegranate Pound Cake

It’s not a particularly pretty cake. You can dress it up by topping it with fruit. You could make it a layer cake with pomegranate frosting in between layers. Or you could drizzle pomegranate syrup over the whole thing. Or like me, you could eat it plain with some fruit on the side.

Beef with Mushrooms and Snow Peas

A while back I wrote an embarrassing love letter to The Pioneer Woman detailing my obsession with her and her Beef with Snow Peas. As much as I loved it, I really wanted to thicken the sauce, add mushrooms, and adjust the flavors to suit my taste buds. Thus the Asian-fusion version of this dish […]

Twice Dredged Chicken Nuggets

We’ve been camping in the living room. Without kidding. It’s a shame really. Do you think the apartment complex would notice if I started a campfire and roasted marshmallows in our living room tonight? Maybe they could deal with the water damage while they were putting out the fire? I ate Homemade Chicken Nuggets last […]

Chicken and Rice Soup

Okay, so there we were sitting at the table last night and he’s telling me about shtoup (soup). No real recipe, just a very specific taste, consistency, and texture. I should have called Ema. That would have been the smart thing to do. I’m not that smart; and, I like a good challenge. So, after […]

Baked Falafel Patties

Chickpeas may be considered a health food now. But, let’s face it. Nothing is a health food when it’s fried. Unless of course you have the willpower to only eat one. You’re probably wondering what my point is. Trust me, you aren’t the only one. My point is like this; I bake & broil my […]
