The making of raisins is a wonderful journey. For me there is no better way to show my love for family and friends then by cooking for them. These raisins are just another way for me to do that. I first started by doing a vinegar water wash of the […]

Swiss Onion Soup…move over Frenchy!
This soup has been haunting me for just over 25 years. I first had it when I was working night shifts at a large hospital in the Midwest. How often can you say you look forward to hospital food? It has taken me a few years but I have finally […]
Summer Asian Slaw
The Asian pack has always been one of my favorites! I love to make up large batches of egg rolls and wontons ( some fried and some raw to use for wonton soup) and stock my freezer. Who doesn’t love a wok full of colorful stir fry?
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 […]
Vegetable Tikka Masala
One of the things that happens the night before Basket Day is using up the remnants of whatever is left in the veggie drawer in the fridge. One of the easiest things to do (and currently one of our favorites) is to go Indian – with a veggie tikka masala.

As a little kid (and a college kid, and a newly married kid) one of my favorite junk food treats was a crispy, fried mozzarella stick. There is just nothing better than biting into a crunchy layer of browned bread crumbs followed by the oooey- goooey- goodness of cheese. Well, […]
Lemon Blueberry Muffins
I should have never questioned one of my friends….she knows I love allergy friendly recipes! She brought these to a MOPS meeting (Mothers of Preschoolers). I begged and she sent me this recipe…..but told me she used regular butter…..so I subbed in dairy free Earth’s Balance and created a […]
I really need a protein rich breakfast to get my day started. One of the easiest and healthiest protein breakfasts is for me to scramble up some eggs. This is a great recipe to use up a variety of vegetables and it is fast so it is perfect for weekday […]
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 […]
Tangy Cran-Orange Coconut Chicken
When I was a small child, I would awake Christmas Eve morning to the smells of cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, oranges and cranberries that wafted around the clinking sounds of Grandma in the kitchen preparing everyone’s favorite dishes for our dinner later that day. Grandpa would be in the his chair […]
