Baked Veggie Rings with Herb Dip

OnionRings-3

I’m not a sweets person. I don’t often crave chocolate, I can go without candy, and if given the option, I’d take potato chips over a donut. I do really love ice cream, but I think that’s because Tim is so good at making it. But, even then, Continue Reading

Broccoli and Goat Cheese Wraps

BroccoliWraps-5

I saved a wrap for Tim to eat when he got home from work. He came into the office and told me that it was really good. He loved how the broccoli was tender, with just a bit of crunch. That the nuts gave more crunch. Continue Reading

Potato Pancakes

PotatoPancakes-5

It’s finally arrived. The day of my favorite meal: Thanksgiving. I don’t know if it’s my favorite because it only happens once a year though. If I could only have one meal for the rest of my life, I don’t know that it would be Continue Reading

Winter Squash Dip

WinterSquashDip-3

I’m a big supporter of fall. I love it when the leaves change color, the chill that creeps into the air, and the winter squash that start to appear in our Abundant Harvest Organics boxes. This fall is no different. I’m in the mood for Continue Reading

Cream of Squash Soup

SquashCarrotSoup-5

This summer, like most summers, I planted a garden. We used the compost that I’d been working on for a year. We bought organic dirt, and I rummaged around for the seeds that I’d been saving. Some were from packages (and probably a few years old Continue Reading

Veggie Pot Pie

Pot pie is one of my favorite foods. I think I say that a lot though. So many foods are favorites that I’m starting to lose track. I guess it depends on the season. Pot pie is one of those dishes that I don’t make all Continue Reading
