I love pizza, I love pizza with yummy ingredients like goat cheese, veggies, artichoke hearts, and pesto. I LOVE this goat cheese personal pizza. My hubbie, Craig has been out of town for a few days working in Mississippi and so I have been preparing dinner only for myself. I have been trying hard to […]
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”. […]
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 […]
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. […]
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 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 […]
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.
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 corn salsa and felt like it was simple enough I will definitely be preparing […]
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 […]
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 […]
One of the first dishes I remember making on my own was during my freshman year in college, baked carrots.
