Spinach Egg Bake

Spinach Egg Bake

One of my favorite dishes for potlucks and company are these mini-frittatas which are delicious and absolutely adorable!  But to be perfectly honest, scooping each frittata and then getting them out of the pan is a bit of a pain, so when I’m just looking for a simple egg dish, I’ve been making this modifiedRead More

Slow Cooker Refried Beans

Slow Cooker Refried Beans

I know beans are good for me.  I really do!  But as a recovering picky eater (thank you to Real Mom Nutrition for that phrase!), they are on my list of foods I am still working on.  It’s the texture, really, which is why I love lentil soup and garbanzo burgers, and am totally happyRead More

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Homemade Barbecue Sauce

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Homemade Barbecue Sauce

Last weekend we invited friends over for our first barbecue of the season.  Except I was really in the mood for pulled pork, and ended up planning a whole menu that did not involve turning on the grill – oops!  But we did still enjoy our meal outside, and the nice thing about this pulledRead More

Easiest Maple Salmon

Easiest Maple Salmon

Years ago I discovered this recipe for salmon with a maple glaze, which is such a good standby.  The combination of mustard and maple syrup reduced to a thick sauce is delicious, but as simple as it is, I am always happy to simplify even more.  A while back my friend introduced me to aRead More

Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Ahhh, the crisp cool weather of fall…I don’t know about you, but the end of the summer heat (and sunblock and chlorine and sand!) comes as quite a relief for me, and I welcome the leaves changing color and the cooler weather finally arriving.  I am also excited about fall produce.  Attempting to eat seasonallyRead MoreRead More

Moroccan Lamb Stew

Moroccan Lamb Stew

This post was originally published on June 1, 2010. Last time I ordered meat from my CSA, I decided to branch out a bit from my typical beef and poultry selection and bought two kinds of lamb – stew pieces and a lamb leg steak.  The steak is still in the freezer waiting for theRead MoreRead More

Zucchini Fritters

Zucchini Fritters

As a follow up to my previous Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread recipe, I wanted to share with you my other favorite use for extra zucchini – fritters!  I just tried this recipe for the first time last month, and I think I’ve made 4 batches since then.  This one is great if you have TONSRead MoreRead More

100% Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns AGAIN! (Bread Machine)

100% Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns AGAIN! (Bread Machine)

Hi everyone!  Just wanted to quickly share a recipe I’ve made several times this summer.  I know I already have a 100% Whole Wheat Hamburger Bun recipe on the site, but that recipe has a few ingredients that are a little more processed than I prefer (e.g., dried milk, potato flour, vital wheat gluten) andRead More

White Whole Wheat Bread (Bread Machine)

White Whole Wheat Bread (Bread Machine)

Would you believe me if I told you that you could make a sandwich bread at home that’s 100% whole grain, simple as can be, and is light and fluffy?  If you took my advice and have a bread machine, you can try this recipe for yourself and see if you agree!  As I haveRead More

Salmon Burgers

Salmon Burgers

Here we go with another late-summer burger recipe, this time featuring salmon!  Throughout my life I have not been a huge fan of food that “lived under water”, but with all of the talk about salmon being such a healthy food, I felt I owed it to myself and my family to get it intoRead More
