Whenever I mention Butter Beans online I get a lot of funny looks in the form of comments. Read the rest of this post
We pulled out the camera for a good old fashioned produce pick video. Up this week: Parsnips!
This is another one of those vegetables that are just not on my radar for some reason. I never remember having them growing up, and honestly I don’t think I ever tried one. I didn’t know what I was missing! Read the rest of this post
I probably should have warned you I was taking a holiday hiatus. I’ve been soaking up every moment of family time imaginable these last few days, leaving no time for anything else. Not even blogging! Shocking I know. ;)
So I return not with a new recipe, per se, but to share a fun new family holiday tradition where I take my favorite brownie mix and turn it into fun festive donuts! Read the rest of this post
Here’s a quick idea for when you find yourself with a spaghetti squash but don’t quite know what to do with it.
That’s happened to you too. It’s sure happened to me!
I roasted this squash on Sunday… Read the rest of this post
I’m not sure if this will be a crowd pleaser, but I liked it and thought I’d share in hopes it inspires you to have some fun with kale.
I loved the combination of sweet pear, earthy kale, salty bacon bits and creamy hummus. The only issue with the wrap was moisture. I think if I cooked down the kale a little more it wouldn’t have been an issue, but even as messy as it was I’d make it again in a heartbeat. Read the rest of this post
I’m going on day 2 of counting Weight Watcher Points and I’m already inspired to come up with light, healthy meals for myself. It’s like I needed the constraint of points to motivate me. Isn’t that weird?
Anyway, all morning I was brainstorming what to make for lunch. I wanted something flavorful and satisfying and I think I hit the nail on the head, for me anyway. Armed with an orange, a red pepper, and my pantry I came up with an Orange Ginger Tuna Salad. You may never want a boring mayo based tuna salad ever again! Read the rest of this post
Our latest adventure involves one of my absolute favorite veggies: The Red Bell Pepper. I’m a pepper freak. Big Brother’s a pepper freak. It was time to see if Little Bean would follow suit.
His reaction was priceless. This was one of my favorite adventures yet.….

I have a friend who patiently cleaned, peeled and cubed a fresh pumpkin and then selflessly gave me some. Scratch that, a TON!
I would have never even thought of doing something like that! But now that I have it in my fridge the ideas are flowing. First, I roasted some simply with curry. D-licious! The curry powder and pumpkin were such a fun combo it gave me an idea for a curry style chili of sorts and it came out even better! Read the rest of this post
CHRISTMAS COOKIES! YAY!
Sorry. I’m so excited! Little Guy and I had tons of fun making and decorating cookies today. It may just be my favorite part of the holiday season. I loved it when I was a kid and now I get to do it with my own kids. Just thinking about it makes me smile.
Of course I couldn’t just follow one of the billion sugar cookie recipes in the world. Nope. I had to research them, study the ingredient lists, and then make up my own. Read the rest of this post
