This is a great side dish for any season. Farro is readily available at most grocery stores and it’s basically a blank slate, allowing you to add in a multitude of veggies and cheeses regardless of the time of year and what’s in season. And it’s especially good for outdoor picnic’s because there’s no mayo to spoil in the heat.Read More
Why eat potato when you can have Zucchini Skins!
I love it when my husband says ‘What are you making now?’ Then he proceeds to eat it all and ask me to make it again and finishes his thought by adding a ‘hua, that was actually really good.’😜
I’ve been working on a few healthy, Keto friendly recipes for an upcoming cooking class. I think these Zucchini Skins with cheese, bacon and sour cream will make the cutRead More
These protein rich spinach muffins are helping my husband and me make good breakfast decisions this week. The feta makes a rich flavor, spinach and egg helps keep us full and the thyme gives it a nice fresh taste.Read More
Sometimes you just need a meal that sticks to ribs but not necessarily to your hips. Now I'm not going to say this recipe will help you lose weight but honestly, if you keep your portion of grits within reason it's really not too bad. There's no cream or butter, just a little goat cheese mixed into the grits with a side of protein and vitamin-rich spinach along with oven roasted tomatoes.Read More

On this very day, one year ago I was flying back from Médoc, France where I spent the better half of a week learning French cuisine (and we may have had a little wine). So I felt this day needed a little celebrating, and what better way to celebrate the anniversary of a culinary adventure...make something I picked up while in France.Read More
Can you tell I’m on a ‘fruit salad’ kick!
If ever there was a fruit that said summertime it would be a tie between watermelon and backyard vine ripe tomatoes! I simply can not get enough of either this year.Read More
My husbands Italian and loves eggplant, he grew up with his mom making eggplant parm all the time. So it was a dish I really wanted to learn to make, I was fortunate that she was able to teach me her recipe before she passed away in 2012. Cooking is so much more than just fueling our bodies, in our house it's time together having fun. Even if it doesn't turn out like the picture or taste quite right, it's all about the effort. Besides what's the worst case scenario....it's terrible and you order pizza? :)Read More
