This salad is so unbelievably easy and it is perfect for a summer or winter meal. It is excellent alongside a piece of fish, but also stands up to a grilled steak.  I learned about this dish from one of my favorite people, Ms. Beverly (Beevis) Andrade. Beevis, amazing wife and mother of two wonderful …

This is a classic Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa) recipe. However, I kicked it up a notch and added toasted pine nuts which gave this dish a rich, earthy flavor and also added more texture. Ina, I hope you approve. You are my hero, after all.  Absent in this photo are the toasted pine nuts which …

I ate a version of these at a Greek restaurant a while back and they were truly the most delicious potatoes I’d ever had. This past week I had a bunch of extra potatoes and I decided to try and re-create the tangy, succulent potatoes that I remembered so dearly. The verdict: mouth watering lemony …

I made this for lunch today with some grilled chicken sausages. I was tired of a boring ‘ol salad and I figured if I’m throwing stuff on the grill I might as well char some romaine and whip up a little Caesar dressing.  This dressing is SO easy to make and can be stored in …

Please do you yourself a favor and make this. Please do your family a favor and make this. Please do your tastebuds a favor and make this! It is SO goooood. Ugh. Heaven. Just think savory sausage, toasted pine nuts, and dried cranberries that have been drowned in a warm brandy bath. Yeah, you read …

I love turnips. The root and the greens sautéed together with garlic is one of my favorite things in the whole world. Generally, turnip greens are cooked with lots of fatty bacon, which is delicious, don’t get me wrong, but turnips and turnip greens are so rich in vitamins and minerals, it’s not worth adding …

Oh. My. Amazing.   If you are seriously embracing the fall season, like someone I know (me), then I have two words for you. Make this. This recipe represents every fall flavor you could think of, and was 100% approved by The Cheese (my hubby). He loved this one.  I find that acorn squash is so …

Grilled butternut squash and carrots over greens with pine nuts and dried cranberries. Need I say more? Healthy, easy to make and just packed with flavor.  Boom. Trifecta. Now eat this.    I got these baby butternut squashes at my grocery store.              I mean, how cute are these little puppies. If you are using …

Have I mentioned it’s fall? Because it is. So, bring on the squash!  For a perfect light fall dinner, or appetizer, just imagine tangy basil pesto spread between layers of tender squash and topped with warm, roasty toasty tomatoes, garlic and a sprinkling of pine nuts. Now stop imagining and make this! It was so …

It’s late summer and okra is in season! This classic southern side dish is so hearty and delicious, I eat it all by itself spooned over some brown rice. However, it is delicious paired with some grilled pork chops, chicken, or fish. This version is made with bacon only because my husband, The Cheese, needs …
