Sushi Salad

Sushi Salad

This is a yummy fresh salad that I’ve been having for lunch lately, as I had been given a huge bag of brown rice to use up.  And who doesn’t love sushi!  This is a play on the California Roll, minus the surimi.  You get all the sushi flavor, in a simpler form!  I’ve just…

Update & Black Bean Burgers

Fellow moms, it’s happening.  Teething!  Ah!  I have been so quiet on the blog because I have been tending to my little dude.  Last week was okay, a little fussiness here and there.  I think I was in denial about what was coming.  Monday thru Friday of this week have been horror days, particularly today. …

Vegetable Frittata

Vegetable Frittata

We’ve been eating a lot of frittatas lately.  For some reason I’m finding it easier to whip one of these up than our usual sunny side up eggs or an omelet.  Not to mention a frittata holds much more room for flavor combinations!  I love them!  We’ve been doing at least one a week, and…

Pumpkin Chili

Hope you will enjoy this chili — another spin-off of the classic.  The pumpkin gives it an initial sweetness when it hits your tongue, but kick it up with chili, cayenne, cumin and black pepper.  Feel free to throw in a jalapeno or two if you wish.  You may also exchange some of the beans…

One Pot Wonders: Salmon Casserole

One Pot Wonders: Salmon Casserole

This casserole is quite yummy, a real comfort dish.  It reminds me of Lent, really the only time of year my family ate fish growing up.  My mom made a tuna version of this from a Hamburger Helper box.  It tasted so good, but was so bad for us.  After all, it was loaded with…

One Pot Wonders: Ratatouille

Another reason I looove One Pot Wonders is the fact that no matter the recipe, it always tastes better the next day!  It’s something about leaving it in the fridge to let the flavors combine so perfectly that just gets me. One Pot Wonders Day 3 is Ratatouille.  I started making and thoroughly enjoying this…
