Potato-Leek NOT soup

  I love, love, love potatoes.  No really- hubby vs. a beautiful, loaded, baked potato I honestly don’t know which would win my affections.  (rest assured kids vs. potato?  I would of course choose the kids). The potato is so versatile- it can be the star of the show or […]

Usin’ up the Giant Yams

When I printed up the Bountiful Basket Volunteer Site Coordinator (VSC) paperwork on Friday night I looked through and was surprised to see that we would only be receiving one yam per basket.  When I told my husband, he was equally surprised and we proceeded to have a merry (albeit […]

Strawberry Chipotle Jam

One of the (many) drawbacks of being a gluten-free and nut-free household is that PB&J sandwiches are few and far between.  This is hard for me because not only do I love that lunchbox staple, particularly when accompanied by a tall glass of milk (another no-no in our house), but  […]

Cucumber Radish Salad

The radishes are staring at you, and you are staring at them. What in the world will you do with 6. You can slice one or two up in a regular green salad with dinner, or perhaps use them in some coleslaw with the cabbage you received this week, but […]

Garam Masala Butternut Squash Soup

Looking for a new and unique way to fix your butternut squash from this week’s basket? Try Garam Masala Butternut Squash Soup. It’s a slighly spicy, different twist on traditional squash soups. Garam Masala is a mixed spice used commonly in Indian dishes. Garam Masala can be purchased pre-mixed or made on […]

Tikka Masala

I love Chicken Tikka Masala, but an authentic recipe requires an overnight marinade, grilling, a multitude of ingredients, and many dirty dishes. So, I set out to create a flavor that was pretty close, but could be made by anyone in less than 30 minutes in just one pot.

Cuckoo For CoCoNut (Oil that is)

The last two months have brought about great changes in my kitchen. We have recently discovered that many of my 7-year-old’s chronic pain issues are due to numerous, severe allergies- both food and environmental. I was already committed to having a “non-processed” pantry and she was already gluten-free so I […]

Curried

Just east of the dazzling Las Vegas strip is one of hubby’s and my favorite date spots. It’s one of those tiny, quiet, unassuming little places located in the middle of a neighborhood that has me clutch my pocketbook and cling to my honey’s arm just a little tighter (in […]
