Southwestern Chopped Chicken Salad

Share

I love a good chopped salad that you can eat as a main course. I adore all of the fresh ingredients and  that the recipes tend to be very forgiving. You can toss in a little more of this or a little less than that without jeopardizing anything. You can even swap ingredients. For example, […]

Grandma Gwen's Beans

Share

These don’t look like your traditional baked beans, but they taste just like them. I think it’s the combination of the brown sugar and vinegar. My Aunt Carole made these for a cookout we had in Maine a couple of weeks ago and I ate at least four servings in one sitting. Who knew baked […]

Mexican Lasagna

Share

I really like this recipe, and I’ve made it twice in the last week. It’s easy to throw together – it’s actually the easiest lasagna I’ve ever made – and it’s incredibly good. It’s a perfect weeknight meal for us as we strive to continue to remove meat from our diet.

Today I watched the movie […]

Slow-Cooker Vegetarian Chili with Sweet Potatoes

Share

I made this chili last weekend.   My sister-in-law used a similar recipe recently and talked about how great it was.    I love the fact that this cooks in a slow-cooker.   I threw everything in the slow-cooker at noon and by 5pm our dinner was ready.   We didn’t eat until 6pm, and the chili was fine […]

I wanted to make a traditional chicken soup yesterday and when I was hunting for a recipe – believe it or not, I’ve never made chicken soup before – I found this recipe instead.    I actually thought it was going to be more of a soup than a stew.  I could have added more chicken […]

All American Chili

I’ve made this a couple of times now and it’s my favorite chili recipe, and I’ve tried lots of them. I’ve made Texas chili, turkey chili, white chili, and my mom’s chili and this is my hands-down favorite. I made a double batch last weekend for the Jets-Indianapolis playoff game. We […]

Tuna Salad with Cannellini Beans

Share

I have been making tuna salad the same way for years – mixing a can of chunk white tuna, mayonnaise and some relish for flavor.   I’ll eat it on bread, sometimes I’ll eat it straight and my son David likes it on a plate with a piece of American cheese melted on top.   […]

Asian Style Three Bean Salad

Share

I consider this an easy summer salad because it’s quick to throw together and it doesn’t require any cooking!  In my book, no cooking is perfect for the summer.  This salad is really tasty with its great Asian flavor.

I don’t know what it is about bean salads, but I make them every summer, always wanting […]
