As I mentioned in my last post, these Roasted Veggie Tacos use the same ingredients as my Mediterranean-Style Bowl but taste totally different! So take a chance and make them two days in a row to see what I mean….it’s the perfect way to use up leftovers… they’re so delicious!
I had a craving for a big bowl of salad – so I checked out my fridge to see what I could add to make it super yummy… I ended up roasting cauliflower with the ‘power’ spices and adding potatoes, zucchini and red onion along with a few shavings of Parmesan cheese… any dressing can top it off!

But times change, taste buds change, and cooking styles change. Now cauliflower is a go-to nightly side…especially when it’s roasted – it’s just so darned good!

A delicious addition to our Meatless Meal Menu…Here’s to a healthy and happy New Year! Continue reading →
When we harvested our broccoli this year I froze a fair amount for days like this…the ones where you don’t have a lot of time. This is the perfect soup to make on those crazy active days without sacrificing great flavor. I have three secret ingredients that I use to give this soup depth and warmth. It is very delicious so if you’re in the mood for a great soup and you don’t have a lot of time…this is a go-to. Also if you want to use up the stalks after the florets are used this is also good… Continue reading →
