These pumpkin oatmeal muffins are so moist, easy, and healthy. I made them as part of Craig and my dinner with a healthy salad and they were just the right pairing. I have always enjoyed a good bread or muffin with soup or a salad and still feel like I am eating a substantial and […]
Craig and I picked up a large bunch of kale this week in our CSA box, along with lots of chard, lettuce, and other greens. I knew we needed to start on these vegetables right away. Because we always get so many greens I am always on the lookout for a new recipe to use […]
Have you always thought like I did, you have to use basil and pine nuts to make pesto? Did you know you may use almost any mild to lightly flavorful herb? and a variety of nuts? Spinach, parsley, mint, basil are all possible herbs and walnuts, pecans, almonds, pine nuts make great nut choices.
I went from hating really disliking sweet potatoes to loving them now. One of the regular vegetables Craig and I receive in our CSA box (Community Supported Agriculture) are sweet potatoes. So I guess I had to needed to learn to like them. I am so glad that I have found lots of recipes to […]
I love pizza. If there was a food that I could eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner it would be pizza. I used to be strictly a pepperoni pizza girl, then I expanded to Canadian bacon and pineapple, and finally came the vegetarian pizza. In Bulgaria, I had a pizza with a fried egg in […]
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 […]
As I’m sure you have also seen, I have been seeing zucchini lasagna all over pinterest lately. I knew that because we have zucchini growing in our garden, this was something I needed to make with some of the zucchini. This recipe is slightly adapted from Skinny Taste’s zucchini lasagna But then it has been […]
One of my good friends moved the beginning of July. Becky is an amazing woman; she is married to a Marine, raising 5 children plus an foreign exchange daughter (she is the one who put Marta into my life), runs miles, and runs everywhere to accomplish much. She and her family are moving to Austin, […]
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 […]
When I first saw the idea for an alfredo lasagna, I knew that it was something I must try. I mean, who doesn’t love lasagna? And with alfredo sauce? Sounds amazing! I came across this delicious looking Veggies Alfredo Lasagna from Pinch of Yum and decided it would be the one I would try. The […]
In California right now you are seeing strawberries everywhere; in the stores, fruit stands, and fields. It is the perfect time to buy strawberries.
Have I mentioned before that I am a host mom to a foreign exchange student from Italy, Marta. Marta is a very nice, really sweet young lady and we are delighted to have her in our home. We had been bugging her to fix us an authentic Italian dinner and finally convinced her to do […]
Have you ever eaten a parsnip before? In my 52 years I don’t think I had, but I have been seeing them all over pinterest and so I broke down and picked up 2. Parsnips look like white carrots for the most part, perhaps taste like that too. I prepared my parsnips for this recipe […]
