Norwegian Sweet Soup– and family traditions!

Monday, November 24th, 2014

One of my first Christmas memories with my then-new-boyfriend 10 years ago  (now he’s my fabulous husband) was experiencing some of his deeply rooted family food traditions with his parents. Norweigan Sweet soup. Spritz cookies. Norwegian Krumkake. These foods have come to mean the holidays for me, and are things I look forward to eating every year around Thanksgiving and Christmas, as do my children. Growing up, I had a couple of family recipes that got handed down, but there was not really something we ate and made every year that had historical significance, so these traditions from my husband’s family have come to be a treasured part of my holidays. What traditional foods do you eat around the holidays?

To start our Thanksgiving this year, we had Sweet Soup and Swedish pancakes for breakfast. The sweet fruity goodness of the soup warms me heart and my belly! (more…)

Irish Bell Pepper Eggs

Monday, March 17th, 2014

If you slice a bell pepper across the width into 1/2 inch slices, they form a shamrock! I heated eggs in the center of each bell pepper slice and it made a surprising morning breakfast. What a wonderful way to make eggs and vegetables a star for a St. Patrick’s Day breakfast! (more…)

Tasty Strawberry Cheesecake Muffins

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

I am a Pinterest junkie! Why am I telling you this? Well let me tell you, I did a little trading this last weekend after I went to volunteer at one of the local BBFC sites. (I just love volunteering for BBFC! You meet so many wonderful people!) Anyway, one of the gals that I have become friends with wished that she had gotten some of the baking potatoes like I did and I was wishing I had contributed for the beautiful strawberries like she did. Well, one thing lead to another and we were splitting up my potatoes and her strawberries. We each left as happy campers! (more…)

Baked Strawberry and Banana Oatmeal

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

This baked oatmeal was so delicious and warm on a cool, lazy Saturday morning. It is also healthy and used some bananas that were hoping downhill. My daughter had to ask me if this was dessert and demanded we have it again the next morning – high marks from my 4 year old. (more…)

Wheat Berry Snacks

Saturday, January 25th, 2014


A few months ago, I contributed for the soft white wheat berries on a whim.  I had never ground my own wheat and didn’t even own a device that would do it.  I read that you could eat it like oatmeal in the morning or in tabbouleh salad so I was convinced that I would find fabulous things to do with them.

Breakfast Wraps

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Breakfast wraps are healthy, fast, convenient, and yummy!  I like to make my wraps with scrambled eggs, ham, bacon, cheese, veggies, and salsa.  There are many varieties of breakfast wraps.  I like to use the wrap add-on pack and make scrambled egg wraps to freeze.  After I wrap them, I roll them up in waxed paper, put them in a ziplock baggie, label and date them, and freeze.   (more…)

Weekend Bounty

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

Saturday breakfast is hard. With getting up to volunteer at the BB site, bringing the bounty home, and then trying to get everything rinsed and put away, making breakfast on Saturday morning is generally the last thing I want to do. But this time, my husband woke up early to pick up our bounty and the bonus was that I was highly motivated to make something yummy for breakfast! Low and behold, beautiful grape tomatoes, onions, asparagus, and I just happened to have mushrooms and eggs in the fridge. Coupled with the most wonderful Organic honey wheat bread purchased as an add-on this week this was a Saturday morning treat I’m sure I can use to bribe my husband and children to wake up every Saturday morning for basket pickup!

Potato, Bacon and Parmesan Frittata

Thursday, September 5th, 2013


I have many recipes in my arsenal that I go to when my basket contents are nearing their end or when I need to clean out my fridge for the upcoming basket.  Frittata is one of those recipes – it is versatile enough to be able to toss many different vegetables into.  Today, I didn’t have many basket ingredients left so I put together this recipe with my last two potatoes from my last organic basket and some green onions that I found in the back of my fridge.  I sliced up my remaining asian pears to serve my family a well-rounded and filling breakfast.

Using The Entire Italian Pack

Looking at the beautiful colors in this pack this morning, I am not having any trouble getting inspired.  Once again I am getting out of my usual rut of making the same ol’ same ol’ stuff.

Italian pack: garlic, basil, oregano, rosemary, yellow summer squash, zucchini, red onion, yellow onion, flat leaf parsley and button mushrooms.
