Taco Zucchini Boat

This idea came to me while I was looking through Pinterest. Normally, when I tell my husband that I have been on Pinterest he rolls his eyes. He knows what is coming next: NEW PROJECTS! Pinterest is my kryptonite when it comes to procrastinating on the internet. I can spend […]

Blueberry Muffins

During June and July, blueberries are everywhere. We go to this pick-your-own blueberry farm every year, and even in the heat we have a blast. My son can and has eaten his weight in blueberries. I swear he eats more than he puts in the baskets. At the end of […]

Cran-Apple Walnut Chicken Salad

This was a game changer. I love my original version with cheese and bacon. I mean bacon. But I wanted something lighter and just a little healthier. This was a huge hit with the family, and I was lucky enough that they saved me a bite to try it. I’m […]

Peach Cobbler

Working at my local farmer’s market has a great advantage: I can buy great tasting local produce for my home and business at amazing prices. Not only do I get great tasting foods, but I help the local farmers, too. I call that a win-win. I highly recommend everyone shop […]

Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup

Most people think about having soup on those cold wintery nights so you can warm yourself up with something hardy. But how about during the summer when the vegetables are at the peak of freshness? I came up with this version of tomato soup after talking to several people about […]

Creamy Grits with Cajun Style Shrimp

Let me start off by saying that I have never eaten shrimp in my life, but that doesn’t stop me from cooking it for my husband and son. My son loves shrimp!! When I say love, what I really mean is he can eat his weight in shrimp and still […]

Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb

A few years ago, we wanted to try something different for Easter. As much as I love honey glazed ham, even I wanted something different. It was our first Easter without family around so we decided to get a little crazy and go with lamb. I have never had lamb […]

Blueberry-Lemon Scones

I love fresh blueberries! And when they come straight from the farmer’s market, the berries seem to be even better!! My son can eat his weight in blueberries in one sitting. Fruit is nature’s candy! With the markets open now there is no storage of fresh blueberries in my house. […]

Tandoori Chicken

A few years ago my husband started asking me to make Tandoori Chicken. I had no clue what it was or what it should even taste like. And we all know that the internet is filled with recipes and people adding their own twists to them. I am no different. […]

Lasanga Rolls

My husband loves lasagna, but I hate making it, and we never ever finish it all. What I really like about this version is that all the pieces are the same size and there is no fighting over who is getting the bigger piece. That makes for one peaceful meal […]
