Main Dish

Pasta cooked on the grill

There are no bounds to the foods that I will cook on the grill. I love the smoky flavor that the grill gives food and I avoid using my stove or oven in the summer. This pasta dish is really easy and scrumptious.

Super Easy Butternut Bacon Tart

 Butternut squash is one of my favorite vegetables. There are so many ways to use it, savory or sweet. This is a fancy looking but easy way that uses puff pastry shells from the store. Add you favorite salad and you have a wonderful meal.

Jalapeno Popper Pizza

I’m OBSESSED with the pizza rounds.  I maxed out on my first contribution because I knew that they would make easy lunches for my daughter but I find myself using them all the time for dinners instead.  Anytime I don’t feel like cooking, I pull out the pizza rounds and […]

Veggie Sausage Soup

This soup is so simple to make, and easy to modify to whatever vegetables you prefer (or have left in your fridge that you don’t know what to do with yet). This is my first attempt at blogging. I’ve always liked the idea of it; I like sharing recipes with […]

A Bountiful Thanksgiving~2014

Thanksgiving has always had a special place in my heart. It’s the time of year when everyone gives a little extra effort to spend time together.

Easy Peasy Pumpkin Pasta

Each time that I make pasta, I wonder why I don’t do it more often.  It really isn’t that much effort and fresh pasta is amazing.  I wish that I could say that I came up making pumpkin pasta but the idea came from fellow blogger, Jamie Scott.  She is […]

Au Gratin Potatoes with Fresh Fennel

I always get excited when we get fennel in our baskets!  But then again I LOVE black licorice, and raw fennel has a definite licorice flavor and aroma.  Sadly my husband is not a licorice fan, so raw fennel is not an option for him.  However, cooked fennel has a […]

Fennel Sausage Skillet

  While stalking the Bountiful Baskets Facebook page this weekend, I noticed we have some clear lines drawn when it comes to fennel: 1) People who like it and are armed with scrumptious recipe ideas 2) People who weren’t familiar at all with it (what is this leafy, green, dill-looking, […]

Bacon and Hatch Chile’s, Enough Said!

You know what I love about Bountiful Baskets? What I REALLY love? Beyond the healthy food on my dinner plate; beyond the rewards I get when I volunteer and do my part to ensure the success of our co-op, which is helping countless people; even beyond money I am saving by […]
