Amazingly, I have decided I like sweet potatoes. They just need to be prepared the way I like; not sweet, not even a tiny bit sweet. About these ads
What is delicata squash? I had my first introduction to it just this fall. I understand it is easy to grow, maybe it is the next new butternut.
You might call this a 2 step recipe because that is all the steps I give you in the directions, but I can’t ignore all the directions in the ingredients preparation with dicing and tearing. I was very pleased with this salsa and felt like it was simple enough I will definitely be preparing it […]
Craig and I eat a lot of salads; a lot of salads – like daily either for lunch or dinner. We feast upon salads for a few reasons: health, weight, and our CSA box. First it was for weight, I personally have lots 40 pounds over the last 3 years. Then we determined the salads […]

I am quite sure cauliflower was not on my list of vegetables that I liked when I was growing up; I am quite sure that list was very, very short. Over the years as an adult I have come to appreciate and even enjoy cauliflower. First, it was raw served with a vegetable dip, then […]
Do you have tomatoes growing in your garden? One of the sweetest treats is a fresh cherry tomato just picked and popped into your mouth. The sweet juices squirting and filling your taste buds with absolute deliciousness. I can eat cherry tomatoes like candy, sometimes it is just hard to stop. I love a fresh […]
I first found these southwest egg rolls on pinterest and made them back in 2011. I love the combination of all these flavors. Chicken, corn, blackbeans, tomatoes, onions and more. Its the same flavors as my favorite southwest salsa, plus chicken wrapped up in a delicious egg roll and baked into perfection. These southwest chicken […]
One of the things I have discovered about living in California is our fruit trees produce and fruit ripens about 1 month ahead of fruit in Utah and Idaho. I still get surprised when it is the middle to end of July and my peaches and pears are ready to be preserved. I always remember […]
I love Arby’s. I usually get the same thing whenever we go to Arby’s, a regular beef and cheddar sandwich. And of course you can’t forget the curly fries. No matter how much I try to resist, if we are at Arby’s, I just can’t say no to the curly fries. I have wanted to […]
Recipe Update: I, Aimee, made another of my mom’s delicious recipes. These crepes are so easy and so delicious! Plus, the great thing about crepes is you can top them with whatever you want. Crepes are so easy, I had forgotten – I had not made them for years. I have to admit my inspiration […]
A couple of weeks ago, I joined a CSA (community supported agriculture) group. In other words I became a member of a community farm, committing to purchasing a box of fresh, locally grown, organic vegetables and fruits weekly. It has been a interesting experience – receiving different vegetables that I have to look on the […]
I love my ice cream maker and I really enjoy discovering new ice cream recipes. Sorbet uses the ice cream maker but is made from fresh, puree fruit.
When I was thinking of recipes to make and share with you in preparation of Fourth of July, I could only think of dessert recipes. Desserts are easy to make holiday specific because you can simply add food coloring to your frosting, or chocolate, or cake mix, or whatever. But you can’t just add food […]
One of the first dishes I remember making on my own was during my freshman year in college, baked carrots.
Mom writer here. I know you haven’t seen much of me lately. Perhaps I have been too busy, too distracted, too lazy or too uninspired. But today I have a wonderful muffin recipe for you.
