Scalloped Carrots

Everyone loves carrots.  My family has a recipe for scalloped carrots that we have used for years and enjoyed.  This is a homey recipe with lots of sliced carrots, thyme, pepper, milk and cheese sprinkled over the top.  When baked, it is a warm, welcoming treat!  I serve it with […]

Lemony Marinated Pork Tenderloin

I’m still working my way through lemons. Everything has to happen in the morning around here, because the afternoon is reserved for family and school. Which means – hello, I NEED a plan. Bobby Flay to the rescue. Well, kinda. It’s really rare that I follow anyone’s recipe exactly. Even […]

Broccoli Bites

Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

The other day I was really craving macaroni and cheese. I adore the cheesy, hearty flavor of macaroni – it is practically its own food group in my life. I began to wonder if I could pull it off using cauliflower in the sauce like I do in my “Alfredo sauce”.

Sweet and Savory Stuffing

Christmas morning. … Turkey is brining, new, space age Super Wave Oven ready on the counter.   Now what? Potatoes?   Cranberries?  Waldorf salad?  No.   Stuffing.   Oh,  you mean dressing?  No,  stuffing.  Same concept up until the baking.   I love mine the old fashioned way-stuffed inside the bird while it roasts,  absorbing […]

Brussels Sprouts and Parmesan Frittata

My chickens have an incredible ability to produce more eggs than we can eat at breakfast, so we are constantly on the lookout for dinner recipes that have the ability to use a ton of eggs!  This recipe fits the bill, and could only perhaps be improved by a smidge […]
