Tri Colored Roasted Carrots

Tri Colored Roasted Carrots 8

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

Grilled Smoked Gouda & Prosciutto With Roasted Garlic, Tomato & Onions

Grilled Smoked Gouda & Prosciutto With Roasted Garlic, Tomato & Onions 2

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).

Roasted Butternut Squash & Red Onion Farro

Roasted Butternut Squash & Red Onion 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
