Quiche (with two easy crusts – whole grain or grain free!)

Quiche (with two easy crusts – whole grain or grain free!)

I have long enjoyed quiche, but generally thought of it as too difficult and too decadent to make at home on a regular basis.  And while it’s true that quiche can be both of those things, with pie crusts, heavy cream, and fillings like bacon and tons of cheese, it certainly doesn’t have to be.Read More

Kale Soup with Farro

Kale Soup with Farro

I love soups in the winter – they are so comforting, and can also be so nourishing when prepared at home!  Store-bought soups are often too salty and loaded with flavorings, questionable meats, and refined carbs that do not contribute anything to our health.  But at home, if you can chop a few veggies andRead More

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

Potato Leek Soup

Potato Leek Soup

As my farmer’s market wraps up, a few staples that have been consistently available for the past few weeks are winter squash, potatoes, and leeks.  One of my goals for this winter is to get better at making soup, and so potatoes and leeks immediately made me think of potato leek soup.  Many recipes outRead 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

Veggie Bolognese

Veggie Bolognese

In my never-ending quest to find ways to eat more vegetables, I was inspired by a recent recipe posted on Weelicious for Veggie Bolognese Sauce.  What a great idea, making a chunky tomato sauce which includes multiple vegetables!  But rather than follow this recipe, I decided to adapt my recipe for basic Meat Sauce andRead More

Mini Spinach and Cheddar Frittatas

Mini Spinach and Cheddar Frittatas

As I mentioned in my post about the naming ceremony we recently hosted for the peanut, I decided to plan a menu that mixed traditional bagels with some homemade sides that helped round out the meal.  I was serving lox (smoked salmon) with the bagels, but for people who may not be a fan, IRead More

Simple Falafel

Simple Falafel

Falafel is not something I grew up eating, but at some point a few years back, hubby must have decided to order some and I discovered how delicious it is.  I have had it a few times since, but it never occurred to me to make it at home.  That is, until I signed theRead More

Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut Squash Soup

A few years ago, I hosted Thanksgiving for the first time for a very small group – just my parents, hubby’s parents, and the 2 of us.  At the time I was in a small apartment and just starting to practice my cooking skills, which led to a menu including an overcooked turkey breast, stuffingRead More

Spanakopita

As a little background, I started this blog as a kind of personal food diary.  I’ve found that being a mom has made me completely incapable of staying organized or remembering much of anything without detailed documentation, which meant that keeping track of recipes was becoming a huge challenge.  So one day I decided thatRead More
