Broccoli Feta Fritters

We eat a lot of Broccoli in our house.  Jacob has been complaining about it, so I tried to come up with a new way to feed it to him without him feeling like his mom is making him eat his Broccoli.  Broccoli is such a nutritional superstar that I want to make sure we […]

Asparagus with Brown Buttered Breadcrumbs

I don’t know about you, but I get tired of my side dishes.  I have been trying to do a better job at putting a little more thought and time into them, as much for the hubs and kid as myself.  This was a great surprise, easy and tasted delicious. 1 pound asparagus, peeled and trimmed 4 tablespoons unsalted […]

Spicy & Sweet Corn Mac-N-Cheese

This is a great way to add sweet delicious corn to an already over the top mac-n-cheese!  You can add as much pepper as you like.  My peppers are extremely hot this year, so I only went with one.  Of course Jim added a chopped extra pepper to his. 1 stick unsalted butter, plus more […]

My hubby runs with a friend a few days a week and sometimes after the run they come in and have a beer to celebrate their accomplishment! 🙂  It usually coincides with me finishing up a recipe for this blog..hmmmm, you think that’s a coincidence?  Anyway, I plopped this dish down in front of the […]

This is really the best zucchini bread/muffin recipe.  I’ve tried several and this is the one I continue to come back too! You can freeze both muffins and bread, so you can enjoy throughout the year! 3 eggs 1 cup olive or vegetable oil 1 […]

Happy 4th of July! Red, White and Blue Salad

Now that my boys are older we don’t do as much to celebrate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, beside the typical grilling out, eating and going to the local firework display.  Wait that’s what most of us do! 🙂 When the boys were younger my husband would organize a Dad and […]

Orzo and Black-Eyed Pea Salad

I have fallen in love with this simple little salad.  It is loaded with yummy healthy vegetables, plus the peas (which are actually beans) gives this dish protein and iron.  So you can eat this alone or as a side to a main course.  I dug into the leftovers for lunch the next day, very […]

Baked Zucchini Fries

With my Garden starting the daily flow of Zucchini, I have been trying out new ways to cook up this persistent veggie. There is nothing like walking out to your garden and picking your own produce to serve up a dinner.  The zucchinis were still warm from the sun as I prepared this recipe, that […]
