Crispy Potato Wedges

May 10, 2013

I am all about crispy potatoes. They are probably my favorite way to eat potatoes, second only to those covered in a cheese sauce… I’ve found that too often I am faced with potatoes that are cooked just until fork tender rather than to the point of crisping their edges. I don’t like potatoes in [...]

Corn Casserole

March 28, 2013

I have made this casserole SO many times. It’s that good. And it doesn’t hurt that I have an infatuation with cornbread… I wouldn’t be surprised if you have seen this recipe before, have made it previously, or already have it as a staple side dish on your Holiday table. Seriously- this is a very [...]

Candied Sweet Potatoes

March 26, 2013

I like to make roasted sweet potatoes often. It is the only vegetable I can get my daughter to eat. Usually I just sprinkle them with oil and cinnamon, serve them with ketchup (she’s a ketchup Queen), and call it a day. But since I end up eating the potatoes with her, I find myself [...]

Sweet Potato Soup With Ginger, Leek and Apple

March 15, 2013

I’ve been on the search for some really great healthy recipes lately. Like recipes that just SCREAM with nutrients. Sometimes I try and play certain dishes that highlight veggies off as nutritious, when in reality they are only moderately healthy at best when you consider the amount of cheese or butter used in their preparation… [...]

Italian Vegetable Stew (Ciambotta)

February 8, 2013

I made this stew in hopes of getting something healthful and nutritious into my diet. It tends to be quite the challenge to do that when I am constantly looking at buttery, sugary desserts and delicious dinners to make for the blog…. but sometimes I’ve just got to bunker down and force myself to find [...]

Butternut Squash Macaroni and Cheese

November 30, 2012

I love sneaky dishes like this. I mean, you can’t even tell there is 10 ounces of puréed vegetable in this!! Granted it doesn’t taste like the traditional creamy, gooey macaroni and cheese goodness… but it doesn’t taste bland and diet-like. It’s a very awesome dish. One of my Fall favorites actually. I’ve made this [...]

Green Bean Casserole

November 12, 2012

I wish I could tell you that I grew up with lots of homemade dinners and Holiday meals, but unfortunately I can’t. My family was brought up wholly on pre-fabbed boxed meals, frozen dinners, fast food, canned goods, and processed treats. I didn’t know any better than, but now that I am older and cook for myself, I [...]

Butternut Squash Lasagna

November 8, 2012

This recipe has been on my “to-do” list every Fall for the past two years, I swear…and now I have finally gotten around to making it! Ever since I tried Giada’s Butternut Squash Tortellini with Brown Butter Sauce, (which was TO-DIE-FOR) I knew I had to try her lasagna. My Husband is not a big [...]
