We try to have meatless Mondays in our home and last Monday was no exception. It makes my son the vegetarian very happy. He never likes to eat things like this, he’s just happy that we’re not hurting any animals.
I am always drawn to recipes that stew vegetables in coconut milk. Yum! I made a [...]
This is my new, favorite macaroni and cheese recipe. I could eat this every day for a week without getting sick of it, and I almost have, considering I made a lot of it and the boys won’t touch it. It’s great fresh from the stove, and it’s great as a leftover as well. When [...]
This is a great side-dish to make on a weeknight. It’s quick and it’s tasty. I really enjoyed it when I made it the first night, and it was even terrific for lunch the next day. The consistency wasn’t perfect the next day, but I actually enjoyed the flavor a little more. I used the [...]
Every St. Patrick’s Day, I make a traditional Irish dinner of corned beef and boiled cabbage, carrots and potatoes. This year I followed a Sandra Lee recipe which called for cooking everything in the crock pot in a mixture of water and apple juice. Actually, I cooked everything but the potatoes in the crock pot.

We had some friends over for dinner last month and I was looking for a quick but tasty side dish. I received Barefoot Contessa Foolproof by Ina Garten for Christmas from my parents, so I flipped through it and came across this recipe. It was perfect and truly foolproof. I have great luck with Ina [...]
I wish I had a perpetual stash of these in my refrigerator. I’ve been eating them for lunch for the past couple of days and I truly think I could eat them every day without getting sick of them. They microwave well, they’re healthy, and nicely filling. I put some smoked mozzarella in mine, and [...]
Looking for a new and different way to prepare beets? Are you a fan of balsamic vinegar? If so, this is the recipe for you, and it’s really simple. It’s a nice way to dress up beets a little bit.
I love beets. As a child (much like my own children), I used to hate them [...]
I found this recipe over the summer and made it for a dinner party, but we ate it all and I didn’t have a chance to photograph it. I have to say that I like this more than regular mayonnaise-based potato salads (although those are awfully good in the summer.) I love the tang that [...]
This salad is delicious, but I won’t lie, it’s fairly time-consuming to make. There are lots of steps, lots of chopping and quite a bit of time needed. This is not something you’re going to throw together on a weekday night after work, unless you’re planning to eat it the next day.
I found this recipe [...]
