We have had kumquats almost coming out of our ears, each week in our CSA box we have received a lunch bag full of kumquats (that equates to about 40 kumquats a week). I have been looking for numerous recipes to use the kumquats in because although they have been a favorite of my mom’s, […]
This chicken noodle soup is full of lots of fresh and delicious ingredients. This soup tastes great with chicken or turkey and would be a great way to use up leftover thanksgiving dinner turkey or meat from a rotisserie chicken. This soup is jam packed full of fresh and healthy ingredients. Carrots, celery, onions, noodles […]
Funnily enough, I got the idea for this salad from a friend of mine from highschool. She has a beauty blog and youtube channel and did a video on what she eats in a day, and for dinner she made a chicken fajita salad. I thought it sounded delicious because we all know I love […]
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 […]
This southwest chicken salad with avocado dressing was prepared using leftover roasted chicken and rice, it was quick, easy, and very tasty. One week ago I had surgery, it was an experience that was uplifting, scary, and unknown. If you want to know more you can read at my personal blog “musings of my mind”. […]
As long as we have meat and lots of vegetables or other chunks in our salad, Nate and I are usually both okay actually having salad for dinner. This Thai chicken salad is full of lots of extra things, chicken of course, red peppers, carrots, cucumber, and topped with wonton strips, and peanuts if you […]
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 […]
Say that fast 3 times! What a mouthful, but it pretty much describes what is in this soup from top to bottom. I found this recipe on Rachael Ray’s site and change it slightly to my liking. We finally had a cooler day here in southern California (cool meaning it only reached a high of […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 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.
Tonight I was excited to make a salad from ingredients taken out of my little garden. My garden is small but I have kale, peas, spinach, romaine lettuce, and mint growing in it that were all used in the salad. I was a little concerned about using the kale in the salad, especially worried about […]
