Summer Garden Pasta

Summer is quickly coming to an end around our house.  The weather is slightly cooler, the anticipation of school is in the air and oh yeah, I’m having a baby this week.  Nothing like adding another little one to your brood to make you realize those long leisurely summer days are over!:)  It’s a bittersweet […]

Sagaponack Corn Pudding

Summer is my favorite season to entertain.  The kids are usually healthy (usually), the weather is warm and you can grill your main entree leaving the hostess to just have to prepare a few sides.  We had some friends over last weekend and I needed a gluten-free menu.  I wanted a side dish that was […]

Summer Brunch Menu

Last weekend I hosted a brunch for some lovely ladies.  I’ve actually never done brunch before but wow, it’s much easier than having people over for dinner.  I always enjoy entertaining at dinner time but truth be told, it’s a lot of work.  I had people over the weekend before for an Indian meal and […]

Baked Spaghetti with Roasted Vegetables and Mozzarella

So this recipe was inspired by two things. First, my mom’s spaghetti bake.  I remember she would make it pretty faithfully for Sunday lunch, have folks over after church and serve it alongside a green salad and garlic bread.  I don’t remember quite how she made it but it looked very similar to this.  I’m […]

Panko Crusted Salmon and Warm French Lentils

It’s been a long hiatus since I last blogged about food.  To be honest, I haven’t been upright for more than 8 weeks so the thought of cooking and food in general has not been appetizing (very sad for a foodie).  My kids have watched more than their half hour allotment of television and the […]

Meatless Monday

I broke a cardinal rule tonight.  I made a separate meal for my kids.  I always swore I would never be the mom who is a short order cook, trying to make sure my kids will eat something.  Anything.  So far, in the 3 1/2 years of motherhood, my kids have done pretty darn well.  […]

Skillet Lasagna

I adapted this recipe from the Food Network Magazine Great Easy Meals cookbook that I recently borrowed from the library.  It has 250 recipes and most of them look really easy including this one.  I love that it is a one-pan meal although don’t be fooled, it does still make a lot of dirty dishes!:) […]

A Food Dilemma

A couple at church had their fifth (!) baby this past week.  I volunteered to take a meal to them.  I was told they were vegetarian.  No problem, I have some vegetarian meals under my belt.  Then I found out they also don’t eat dairy.  Uh oh.  Most of my vegetarian meals involve some form […]

Vegetable Soup

I’ve been on a mission to include one vegetarian meal into our weekly menu.  I’ve got black beans in the crock pot simmering away currently as I blog.  If I were a little more punctual, this recipe would have been a great Meatless Monday post but I can’t seem to get it all done in […]
