It’s harvest time again and like many of you, we are wondering what to do with it all! So many zucchini, summer squash, carrots and other yummy harvest vegetables. If you missed our post on how to preserve garden vegetables be sure to check it out for some easy ways to make it last longer. But back to this delicious summer vegetable chowder recipe.
I am addicted to Thai food. Growing up in small town Maine I didn’t have the opportunity for Thai food very often. Now I live in a busier place, I have the opportunity a lot more. Andn with the Internet, I can access so many recipes. Add a crockpot and a freezer to the mix and I’m in heaven! This Crockpot Thai Peanut Chicken is scrumptious and touches on all your tastebuds! This is one of my favorites in the Crockpot Freezer Meal series. [Read more…]
Here’s a speedy way to use up #zucchini and pack some nutrients into a yummy meal. I made this for breakfast, but it would be delicious for any time of day. It could be the entire meal or a side dish. I think it would be fun to cook this over an open fire pit sometime!
A frittata is an Italian dish made with fried beaten, or whipped, eggs and resembles a Spanish omelet.

Pair this with our yummy kale salad and you’ve got amazing flavor and a healthy meal! [Read more…]
One of the best parts of Thanksgiving and Christmas are the leftover turkey recipes! My favorite of several is my easy Turky Pot Pie recipe. It’s wholesome ingredients add comfort to the cold months ahead… if it lasts that long. In my house, it doesn’t stand a chance!
This easy peanut butter and oatmeal bar recipe is delectable! I (Christina) love to try new things out in the kitchen for my family. Desserts are one of my favorite! They always bring a smile to their faces. This one was no different. The entire 9×13″ pan was gone in a matter of days so you know it was good.
Here’s what to do:
I have never had boneless skinless chicken breast as moist as this! Every bite was juicy and delicious. I’ve never thought of cooking my chicken this way. I’ve always oven roasted chicken breast and even though it was moist and flavorful, it wasn’t even close to this. It’s an easy 45 minute process that you will love! The leftovers were just as good!
Here’s what I did:
No matter how you carve, slice, steam, roast, drink it, I LOVE PUMPKIN! (Carve as in pumpkins, slice as in pie, steam as in cook, roast as in seeds, drink as in latte….)
This year I carved one pumpkin and cooked another. I wish I had taken a picture of my carved pumpkin before I fed it to the buffalo. Next year…. My other pumpkin I cooked in a way similar to how I steam squash. Scoop out the seeds and goo in the middle, peel, chunk it up, and steam it until soft. I had SO MUCH pumpkin! I used some of it for my healthy organic pumpkin brownies and some of it I used for these scrumptious whoopie pies.
Here’s what I did:
Mom’s Comfort Food Tuna Casserole is home to me. My mom is an amazing cook and out of ALL the mouth watering recipes, this is the one I love the most and request for my birthday. This ooey gooey tuna casserole makes so much that this time I baked half of it in a casserole dish and froze the other half for another time. Even then, there were leftovers!
Here’s what I did:
My family LOVES this recipe! My boyfriend’s daughter loves the Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup from Panera Bread so when I saw this recipe, I had to try it! I changed the ingredients a little bit and we fell in love! Now it’s a once a week recipe for us.
No complaints here since it’s also on the healthy side of things! [Read more…]
Everyone should have Homemade Vanilla Extract in their cupboard! This is an easy, feel-good concoction. You can choose what potency or proof you want your vanilla to be. Bear in mind the alcohol cooks off during baking.
I purchase vanilla beans from a food co-op. Do yourself a favor and get organic. It’s just the right thing to do! Slice two or three beans lengthwise. Do not cut them in half. The goal is to just open them so the alcohol can mingle with the inside of the beans.
Challenged by my sister Chris to come up with a healthy brownie recipe a few weeks ago after she published her own healthy brownie recipe, I came up with this pumpkin brownies recipe. Knowing me well, Chris nailed it when she said that I’m an organic, natural kinda person. I like that she makes me think and urges me outside my comfy box, but — gee! I’ve got stuff going on and little time to come up with a wa-zoo recipe! Ah, the pressure….
Being the season for pumpkins, I knew my first healthy ingredient! In addition, adding veggies to dessert makes it healthy automatically in my opinion. Right? Right?
Anyway, following is my Healthy Pumpkin Brownies Recipe in response to her challenge.
Fun, fun, fun! This yummy Deviled Egg Recipe is sure to be a great addition for your Halloween party! Deviled eggs are one of my favorites at any gathering I attend. They are so easy to make that I usually volunteer to bring them. With this cute and affordable idea, I can’t wait for the Halloween party this year! They are guaranteed to be a hit!
