Pasta cooked on the grill

There are no bounds to the foods that I will cook on the grill. I love the smoky flavor that the grill gives food and I avoid using my stove or oven in the summer. This pasta dish is really easy and scrumptious.

Kasundi… ketchup’s Indian cousin

I’m not a big fan of normal ketchup.  I know, I’m weird but I don’t even keep it in my house.  I just find that it is generally oversweet and can overpower the flavors of whatever you are putting it on. With that being said, I think that Kasundi is […]

Southwestern Jicama Slaw

The first time I saw a jicama was when it came in my basket one week. I had NO IDEA what in the heck I was supposed to do with the brown rooty-turnipy looking thing. After lots of playing around, I have since decided that using it in a slaw […]

Its Time for Migas Y’all

I’m taking y’all on a trip down to sunny Austin, TX for a traditional Tex Mex breakfast. You can step into nearly any self-respecting breakfast establishment in Austin and order Migas. This is the way that I make Migas but it can be made in a variety of ways.  The […]

End of the Basket Salad

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 […]

A Bountiful Thanksgiving~2014

Thanksgiving has always had a special place in my heart. It’s the time of year when everyone gives a little extra effort to spend time together. Work schedules, activities and events become less of a priority and we’re reminded that our families are the real reason for being thankful. Sometimes […]

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.

Fennel Sausage Skillet

  While stalking the Bountiful Baskets Facebook page this weekend, I noticed we have some clear lines drawn when it comes to fennel: 1) People who like it and are armed with scrumptious recipe ideas 2) People who weren’t familiar at all with it (what is this leafy, green, dill-looking, […]
