Hearty Kale and White Bean Quesadillas

KaleBeanQuesadillas-5

When I plan our menu I try to include a good variety of foods, so we don’t get bored. Sometimes they’re a little more complex, have multiple steps, and more ingredients. Other times they’re simple, basic, super easy. Scrambled eggs and toast makes a great dinner. So 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

VeggiePotPie-5

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

Thai Basil and Peanut Soup

ThaiBasilPeanutSoup-6

Soup, how I have missed you!! I’d kinda forgotten about soup. I don’t know how. It’s one of my favorite things to cook and eat. Ever. Ever. EVER! I’m aware of the weather. It’s been about 97,000 degrees out lately and it’s just going to Continue Reading

Tofu and Eggplant Lettuce Wraps

TofuEggplantLettuceWraps-5

Lettuce is one of those oft neglected veggies. I fall into the trap of thinking that lettuce is meant for sandwiches and salads alone. Never mind the fact that I’ve made it into Caesar Soup, which is at the other end of the spectrum for Continue Reading

Chile Pepper Poppers

StuffedHotPeppers-5

Try saying “chile pepper poppers” over and over again. I like how it feels to say it. Kinda like how I like the feel of the word “cake”. I think I like the word “cake” more than I actually like cake itself. I’m done now. Continue Reading

Eggplant and Summer Squash Tacos

EggplantTacos-7

This is one of those meals that’s made with ingredients that I didn’t used to think I liked. Eggplant and squash are things I’m excited about when summer arrives. That didn’t use to be the case. I remember making Eggplant Parmesan before I knew about Continue Reading

Succotash

Succotash-6

If you watched Looney Tunes as a kid, you probably remember Sylvester’s, “Sufferin’ succotash!” When I think about this dish, it’s his voice that usually says the name. Over and over and over and… over. But, ain’t no sufferin’ here. Tim, who is not a huge fan of Continue Reading

Bean and Veggie Mélange

BeanVeggieSaladDip-7

I called this a “mélange”, which is French for “mixture”. It seems so versatile that I don’t want to limit it by calling it a dip or a salad. A dip implies the need for some sort of scooper. Corn chips would work well. I’m Continue Reading

All Season Fennel Pizza

Customizable Panzanella Salad

PanzanellaSalad2015-6

There are so many things that this salad can be. It can be vegan, paleo, low-carb, gluten-free, high-protein… It all depends on what you add to it. I made some baguettes a few weeks ago that I wasn’t thrilled with. They’re prefect for croutons though. Continue Reading

Vegan Tofu Fried Quinoa

We don’t eat a lot of meat. We enjoy it, but it’s expensive, and we’ve found that there are plenty of other ways to get enough protein in our diet. So the meals containing meat are few and far between, and we fill in the Continue Reading
