Lemony Chicken with Green Beans

A gorgeous dish, it really should have a fancy name…a little wine, lemon and a handful of sun-dried tomatoes spark up gorgeous green beans, chicken and a few potatoes. Fingerling potatoes or Yukons are perfect but a red potato makes a great budget stand in. And everything is napped with that bright sauce. Shhh…don’t tell…

Thai Pineapple Fried Rice with Kale

When Angie over at Fiesta Friday challenged other food bloggers to create a healthy dish this month, I was all set. See I’ve been making so many marvelous healthy dishes with cauliflower this month (I just can’t seem to get enough of it – maybe I’m lacking some trace mineral it has) that I thought…

Smoky Cauliflower Hummus

You’re going to think I’ve gone Cauliflower Cray Cray! If you follow me, you’ll remember I made “Essential Oven Roasted Cauliflower” last week. And then I made Cauliflower with Dates & Pine Nuts. Now, here’s Smoky Cauliflower Hummus.

Essential Oven Roasted Cauliflower

I’m a cauliflower lover and roasting is my favorite way to cook it. It’s crisp/tender, and the roasting really brings out the best in cauliflower. I’ll eat it just as is, on its own, dress it up for a fancier side or use it as a part of another recipe. Heck, I’ll eat it like some…

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I love love love fall. It’s my favorite season. I love the cool crisp air, and the fall colors and the golden fields and bare branches contrasting against the cool skies. And I love fall flavors and food that has – well – taste but is still comforting. Like this Roasted Red Pepper Hummus.

Easy Sausage Sheet Tray Bake

Fall has caught up with us, finally, with a fury. We’ve finally had our first real frost. And with it, a flurry of activity. Some herbs were potted and brought in and as many green tomatoes as we deemed prudent picked and placed in bags where hopefully they’ll ripen.

Pineapple Mango Salsa

This is a lovely little fresh salsa for a dip or a side, mild if you’d like or fiery if you wish. The fruity pineapple & mango are set off beautifully by the lime/vinegar combo and the result is a bright, sweet/tart flavor explosion.

Balsamic Glazed Chicken & Tomatoes

As summer morphs into fall, it’s fun to make recipes that still take advantage of the abundance of tomatoes out there (yes, it’s me again – the tomato lady, lol!) but to give them a heartier twist. And when that twist includes easy boneless-chicken breast and a simple balsamic vinegar reduction? Well, count me in.

My Mango Lassi

Corn, Tomato & Feta Salad

We’ve been getting some wonderful corn here and when great corn is no longer a luxury in itself, and only then, can I really think about making it some way other than barely cooked, buttered and salted. In other words, it takes a bit for me to get my fill of it each year…

Build a Better Berry Smoothie

You know what I love? Smoothies. And probably you do, too? But what I don’t love? Putzing with them. Adding a bit of this or that, trying to get them thick and luscious but still sippable through a straw.
