Veggie scramble

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 […]

Weekend Bounty

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 […]

Chile Relleno Tacos

The Chile Relleno invokes images of deep fried, battered chiles, heavy beans, and a lot of gooey sauce. YUMM!! I needed a way to make this dish a bit quicker… And, yes, I will make the chile casserole version, soon. So, to be healthier and to make this a quick […]

In planning a menu for a Games Night the idea of tapas came to mind. This reminded me of a recipe in the August 2013 Better Homes and Gardens August for Lemony Ricotta Summer Squash Galette. Not only was it easy, it used ingredients already on hand! I also knew […]

Hiding Cauliflower… In Mac and Cheese?

The idea of cauliflower to me just sounds awful. I didn’t grow up with cauliflower. It was just not a vegetable my very Filipino family used. And every time we get cauliflower in the basket, I sigh. But no more! I challenged myself to use an entire head of cauliflower […]

Homemade Onion Powder

A couple of days ago I was standing at the stove making dinner when I glanced over to the counter and realized that I had 7 onions.  “Hmmmm…”, I thought to myself, “I need to get rid of those.”  My Mom had already asked for a couple so that solved […]

Using The Entire Juice Pack

The Juice pack was introduced in January to  provide those participants that wanted to do a juice fast an easy and affordable option; for many it was a chance to add some extra fruits and veggies to their dinner table.  I tried juicing and actually liked some of the concoctions […]
