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

Pickled Beets and Cabbage

PickledVeggies-3

Pickles are one of life’s great mysteries. I don’t quite understand why or how they are so awesome. They just are. They can add so much to a dish. They’re fun to eat. And, they’re a lot simpler to make than I would have thought. I’ve 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

Carrot Pasta with Tarragon

CarrotPasta-5

If I told you that this was another dish where versatility is key, would you be surprised? It’s the way that I cook, so as often as possible, I will offer alternatives. Just in case it’s a different season when you read this post, in 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

Tuna Boats

TunaBoats-6

There are so many things that you can do with tuna. It makes a fabulous sandwich, one of my favorites. It’s a great addition to pasta, one of my comfort foods. And, it’s good in a boat. Specifically a boat made of veggies. This is 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

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

Green Bean Fries

GreenBeanFries-4

I’m crazy about French fries. With a burger they’re fabulous, topped with gravy and cheese curds they’re comforting, with a hearty dip they’re a meal. Of course they don’t have to be made with potatoes. Parsnips, carrots, and summer squash all work perfectly. And while we’re at it, Continue Reading

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

VeganTofuFriedQuinoa-6

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

Chicken Noodle Soup

Red Choi Stir Fry with Tofu and Almonds

RedChoiStirFry-6

It makes me super happy when I’ve made something that’s loaded with veggies, and Tim, unprompted, tells me how much he likes it. What a guy! Good thing he liked it so much (even the tofu!), because I am sold. First of all, tofu is Continue Reading

End of the Week Pasta

EndOfTheWeekPasta-7

It’s nearing the end of the week. And the cupboards are a little bare, the pantry is kinda empty, the produce drawers are filled with distant memories (and a few stray veggies).  Sound familiar? Maybe this only happens at our house.  In any case, I’ve Continue Reading
