We’ve all been there. Its 4:45, you’re trying to get supper together and in the oven, and you need a can of green chiles…but there are none in the pantry! So, stock up on roasted green chiles in the freezer when you can! I love using them fresh, but sometimes I spend a day putting them up for later when they are offered by the case. (more…)

I have been really geeking out on making plans for my Asian pack. So many yummy options, so little time. I finally executed some of those ideas tonight. This was a great week night dinner because it came together quickly and the result was delicious. It was so good that my five year old was angry that she got two and her dad put SEVEN (yes, seven) on his plate. She quickly snatched two from his plate for herself.
In addition to being easy and scrumptious, this recipe is really adaptable. A lot of times I feel like I don’t make “recipes”, I just have concepts that I use to fit whatever ingredients I have on hand. This is one of those “recipes”. I am just laying the framework but it is super flexible. I used ground turkey because I had it in the fridge but any ground or shredded meat would be splendid and I used bell pepper because I needed to use them up but any number of vegetables would be fantastic (carrots, celery, peas, etc).

Sometimes you just feel like giving your family a special treat. With this Chocolate Fettuccine & Strawberries you can do just that. Plus using the fresh produce from your basket makes it even better.
Thanks to Bountiful Baskets I can not only make my cake I can eat it too. I used my homemade applesauce and fresh zucchini from one of my baskets to make a moist and light cake. I did a semi sweet chip frosting to keep it simple. Every one deserves a special treat once in a while so why not try this, you won’t be disappointed.
I am so in love with the young Thai White coconut we got in a basket. There are so many ways to enjoy them and this is at the top of my list. In the notes you will see how to make your own coconut milk to use in this recipe.
There are so many ways to use cauliflower. The only limit is your own mind. I have seen lots of cauliflower tortilla recipes on the web but wanted to do one of my own. Here it is.
I picked up my Half time hostess pack last night and saw my prizes….I was so excited. I don’t think people realize the value of these babies, the gazillion things we can do with them! I think I will be testing out the possibilities in the near future. But, I am all about instant gratification so I wanted something fast, easy and healthy. So I whipped up these tostada’s and they were FABULOUS! Just like all great things. It must be shared. I’m sure with a little time this too can be perfected but for now. Fast and ooooh so good will do. The great things about tostad’s is you can fit them to your liking. (more…)
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 others, and I like to talk (haha!). What a way to pair the two!
As I sit here (now for the
4th *5th* time typing this, thanks to my energetic 1 year old), I thought I’d like to share my recipe for a quick and easy soup. I love it because it can clean out your fridge of those veggies that have been in the crisper all week long (or more!). It doesn’t take long to come together, and who doesn’t need a little more time chasing the munchkins around? (more…)
Ever wonder what to do with your produce from the last basket a few days before the new basket is coming. I do a end of the basket salad. Never the same twice but it is always fantastic. I am surprised how creative some of them can be. Change them up with your own favorite dressing and enjoy! (more…)
