What Mom Never Told You About Ambrosia Salad

Ambrosia is sweet magic stuff that was eaten by the gods! No, it is! Historically, ambrosia was the sweet stuff that Greek gods ate to stay powerful and immortal. Without it, they became weak and human-like. When most of us think about ambrosia, we think about Ambrosia Salad. But, here’s something you probably didn’t know. […]

Puff Pastry Vegetable Tart Recipe

This post has been sponsored by Hood. I’ve mentioned before how much I hate rolling out dough of any type. It’s a skill I’ve never mastered, and I have no patience to learn. My solution is to begin with a ready-made pie crust or puff pastry instead. It saves time, and I think tastes just […]

Roasted Radishes with Honey

Sweet Corn Salsa Recipe with Black Beans and Cilantro

Caramelized Onion Crock Pot Recipe for Burgers

My family has pretty traditional food favorites. While I can occasionally get away with something different for dinner (like my Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls), most of the time they want your typical American meal choices.  Cheeseburgers, macaroni and cheese and spaghetti are the most commonly requested meals.

This easy asparagus appetizer is perfect for the holidays or even for a light lunch.

Paleo Thanksgiving Recipe | Butternut Squash with Maple

I love holidays but sometimes it can be a challenge to stick with healthy eating especially when you’re spending the holidays at someone else’s home.

Maple Glazed Carrots with Bacon for the Winter Holidays

These maple glazed carrots are delicious! I love carrots. Not only are they delicious but they store well and are fairly inexpensive to buy. Given our very rocky soil, I have never good luck actually growing carrots in my garden but I always buy them at the farm stand and our farmer’s market so we […]
