I love eating salads for lunch…I try to make a variety so I don’t get bored. Since roasting veggies just makes them taste so much better I added some roasted green beans and red onion wedges to today’s salad and then topped the salad with toasted pine nuts, shaved Parmesan and drizzled on a champagne vinaigrette….just lovely!

I love the variety of colors you can get from the world of vegetables. My hubby and I are committed to non GMO’s in our garden and in our refrigerator as often as we are able. It’s amazing the plethora of different varieties within the same family of veggies. So much different today than the plain veggies we had growing up. Continue reading

Chicken quarters are under utilized in my opinion, very economical and just plain good. I like to grill them in the summer and roast them this time of year. Yet another simple dish to please our happy home. We shared them outside on this beautiful afternoon for a quick but delicious picnic. Continue reading
Sometimes a grilled cheese tastes like the best tasting sandwich in the whole world. As a little girl in kindergarten back when kindergarten was 1/2 a day, I would come home and want a grilled cheese sandwich (American cheese) and tomato soup (Campbell’s). Although I wouldn’t pass on this American delight still, I think my pallet has heightened a little. I’ve said it before in a post last year… Wow! Last year? It was when I shared my Creamy Roasted Tomato & Garlic Soup with Grilled Cheese on Rosemary Garlic Bread….Well, today I decided to incorporate the roasted tomato into the sandwich with a smoked Gouda… Continue reading
Happy New Year! Heidi and I had a wonderful holiday filled with family, friends & fun! We hope you all enjoyed your holidays as well!
We’re starting the New Year with a MEATLESS MONDAY! What better way to start the year than by eating a healthy meal; especially after eating all those roasts and high-caloric foods during the holidays. This Roasted Vegetable Lasagna is not only meatless, but also noodle-less…the roasted eggplant and zucchini act as the noodle – and by roasting them the flavor is intensified… Continue reading
MEATLESS MONDAY! Farro is one of the oldest grains. It was even found in the tombs of Egyptian kings! For years it’s been cultivated in Italy and has a lot of history (History of Farro). History or no, I really enjoy eating Farro. It has a nutty tenderness that is hearty and perfect for the Fall and Winter months. For this recipe Farro was joined with roasted butternut squash (another true favorite) and red onion, perfectly seasoned, and topped with crunchy toasted pine nuts. It can be enjoyed as a side dish or all on its own. It’s high in protein and fiber so it fills you up. If you’ve never tried Farro before, this is a great way to give it a go… Continue reading
