Butternut Squash Risotto

One of my favorite things to make is risotto. I make seafood risotto, mushroom and veggie. In this case, I had leftover butternut squash and wanted to make a quick dish to snack on later. Honestly, risotto is not scary to make - promise. It does take a little bit of babysitting and stirring but [...]

Noodle-less Squash Lasagna

  Are you looking for a recipe that you can make a day in advance? This is the one for you. I love the sweetness that butternut squash brings to this dish and prefer it over noodles! If you make this the day before and let it cool, it will be the perfect consistency for [...]

Roasted pork loin w/ Apricot fig chutney

I'm going to make this post easy because it's been a heck of a travel itinerary for us!! We got married, took off on our honeymoon and then I had a business trip to Chicago the next day. Why does this matter? It doesn't. I just needed to share why I was MIA ;) Ok, [...]

Making that sauce

Whenever I see my mother, she hands me a pile of produce. This week it was 14 tomatoes in a bag and a large handful of basil. Naturally, I rejoice. Tomato season is just starting to catch up and we're finally getting ripe tomatoes by the basket full. My favorite thing to do with them [...]

Garden Vegetable Quiche

  It's August already. Crazy how the summer is flying by! This week's garden haul has consisted of a surplus of tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, onions, basil and herbs. Besides making 4,000 jars of pickles like we usually do, I've been experimenting with some recipes. ;) Here I am with our 76 tomato plants. Yes, 76 [...]

Gluten Free Chinese dumplings

  So...everyone is aware that when a bride gets ready for her wedding day she eats clean. Well, eating clean for me has been no sugar, no salt and no gluten. Of course, it feels like I'm eating air... I digress. The good news is - I have a cheat day once a week on [...]

5 Beet Recipes

We are mid-way into summer harvest in the garden. That means, all those delicious beets we planted are just about ready. Actually, they're more like exploding out of the ground so we're picking them by the handful. One concept we use in the garden often, is "thinning the beets". When you seed the rows early [...]

Savory Cheese and Chive Soufflé

I used to think Souffle's were scary. So scary that I just capitalized it as I wrote: "soufflé". Eek!! Granted, they are the boss of the culinary world in a way, but not impossible to make for a Sunday brunch. I decided to try my hand at one after being too afraid to make them. Today. [...]

Tomato Pesto Tarte

We're at the point in the season where the garden is just about to pop! With all those tasty veggies coming out to play, I wanted to feature recipes using what we grow right in our own back yard. Maybe you see some of these veggies in the store and think: "Hmm, I'm not sure [...]
