Vegetable Pasta Salad

Recently I hosted a baby shower for a friend and lunch was served.  My fellow hostess provided a sub sandwich and I had the side dishes to prepare.  I decided on one of my favorites, a colorful vegetable pasta salad.  I believe vegetable pasta salads are my standby go to recipes but I am never […]

Tomato Squash Bisque

Does reading Tomato Squash Bisque peak your interest in this soup?  First off, did you know bisque means a creamy soup that is usually shellfish or vegetables.  This soup is a delicious combination of vegetables with fresh tomatoes, delicata squash (you can use butternut squash instead), basil, and heavy cream (thus the creaminess). I started […]

Southwest Chicken Salad with Avocado Dressing

This southwest chicken salad with avocado dressing was prepared using leftover roasted chicken and rice, it was quick, easy, and very tasty.

Kale Salad

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 […]

Broccoli Cheese Soup

I love soup!  Do you love soup?  One of my favorite soups is broccoli cheese soup and I can’t believe we have not shared a recipe for you with these delicious flavors before now.  Broccoli should be in season now, it prefers growing in the colder weather as opposed to the heat of the summer.  […]

Black Bean Sweet Potato Tacos

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 […]

Tavern Style Crock Pot Beef Roast

**I created my Tavern Style Crock Pot Beef Roast with Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sauce as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. All opinions are my own. #CampbellsSkilledSaucers Yesterday was the first real snow we got here in Orem. And it didn’t just sprinkle a little snow. It really snowed. And it really snowed some more. We got […]

Sweet Potato Patties

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.

Delicata Squash Soup

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.

I was very pleased with this corn salsa and felt like it was simple enough I will definitely be preparing […]

Pomegranate Citrus Salad

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 […]

Cheesy Cauliflower Carrot Mash

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 […]
