Polenta Florentine

Share

The photo isn’t so great, but this is a dish I make regularly, so I wanted to add the recipe to the blog. My husband and I love this dish. It uses something that for years I walked right by in a supermarket without paying any attention to it – a tube of polenta. […]

Carrot and White Bean Burgers

Share

I love experimenting with veggie burgers, and in my book, this recipe is a winner. It’s very tasty even without condiments and when you first make them, they hold together pretty well.

“Chorizo” Tacos

Share

I have made these tacos quite a few times now. They’re part of our regular dinner rotation. My vegetarian son LOVES them, and I have to say that I do too. I don’t even notice that they’re meatless.

Farro and Roasted Red Pepper Salad

If you’re not used to cooking with farro, give it a try, it’s an “old world grain” that is becoming increasingly popular. It’s […]

Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Share

This recipe is apparently a take-off on a dish served at P.F. Chang’s, a Chinese restaurant chain. The recipe is easy to throw together and you get a big bang for your buck in terms of flavor. It reminded me of an Asian sloppy Joe (Sloppy Joe’s were one of my favorite school lunches growing […]

Although the photo doesn’t do it justice, this is one of my new favorite recipes. Because my husband and I were the only ones in the family to eat these, and the recipe makes a generous quantity, we ate them for several days in a row and I didn’t get sick of them at all. […]
