Creamy One Pot Pumpkin Pasta

One pot pasta ideas have been super popular for quite awhile now.  The idea was pretty revolutionary for me – you put basic ingredients in a pot for 20-25 minutes and end up with pasta in a delightful sauce.  I had nothing planned for dinner so it was a perfect […]

Hearty Pumpkin and Sausage Soup

It isn’t just fall, it is pumpkinpalooza!  This is the time of year when I go overboard on buying pumpkins for every corner of my house and cook pumpkin in everything that I can get away with (without driving my family too crazy). I spent the day at a field […]

Chicken Andouille Gumbo

Nothing warms the tummy more than soup and this one does it very well. Adjust the seasonings to make it spicy or tame. Add some shrimp to make it that much better. Serve some warm bread on the side and you have a fantastic meal.

Vampire Chicken

When Wendy asked me to edit this recipe, I had no idea she meant she didn’t say anything about it! For being so intelligent, she sure wasn’t thinking when she basically gave me free reign to type a paragraph or two (you can take just guess about all the things […]

Potato Fennel Cheese Soup

Tuesdays are particularly fun at our house!  There’s piano lessons, and of course it is produce ordering night.  This particular Tuesday was a special sort of challenge.  It involved fence defying goats, hopping fences after them, trudging through recently irrigated muddy mosquito filled pastures, getting the little Ms. Special Pants, […]

Chipping, carrots that is!

  I found myself trading avocados a couple baskets ago for some extra carrots. Not realizing at the time I had 2 one pound bags already. Now what can I do with them???? I know carrot chips. There is nothing like homemade chips of any kind and carrots are one […]

Bacon and Hatch Chile’s, Enough Said!

You know what I love about Bountiful Baskets? What I REALLY love? Beyond the healthy food on my dinner plate; beyond the rewards I get when I volunteer and do my part to ensure the success of our co-op, which is helping countless people; even beyond money I am saving by […]

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 […]
