No Soup For You!

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

I have been wanting to eat Brussels Sprouts in a soup and I wanted to find a way to have them in without it being the main attention getter. You may not believe me this when I tell you but…Brussels Sprouts have a bad rap. I get it; they are tiny cabbage looking things and they smell funny while you cook them with an equally strong taste! But I have found that once I got past the obvious reasons for thinking I shouldn’t like them and gave them a shot I fell in love with the tiny cabbage looking thing with a funny smell! (more…)

Stir Fried Spaghetti Squash

I  love spaghetti squash!  It is one of the most versatile vegetables to use for dinner.  I like to think of it as a surprise inside the bright yellow outer shell.  When baked the inside is filled with hot, steaming strands of yellow squash that are a great substitute for pasta.  We usually have it as a spaghetti for dinner one evening and the leftover is used in a stir fry.  I try to use lots of the vegetables from our Bountiful Basket in the stir fry.  I hope you will enjoy this recipe!

Forget everything you know, or think you know about Brussels sprouts. One bite of these delectable little beauties will have you singing a new tune.

It only took one tear filled dinner to quickly dispel that myth. (more…)

Brussels Sprouts and Parmesan Frittata

Wednesday, December 25th, 2013

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 of bacon being added at the beginning.
