Classic Potato Salad

I grew up eating white potato salad and it is one of my all-time favorite comfort foods. It reminds me of family gatherings, parties, and picnics and it makes me feel happy. I am not a fan of yellow potato salad at all and you will never catch me serving it. Why would I when […]

Tomato Sandwich with Dill Mayo

Growing up, one of my favorite sandwiches was the tomato sandwich. My mom used to make them with tomatoes and sandwich spread, adding cheese most of the time. As I grew up, my tastes changed and I altered her version a little; I use mayo with dill and never add cheese. This is such a […]

Vegetarian Holiday Appetizers and Side Dishes

I love the holiday season because it is designed for spending time with family, giving thanks to God, and acting with compassion to those we love and those in need. But let’s face it, many of us also love the holiday season because of the food! I have been a vegetarian for most of the […]

7 Vegetarian Holiday Main Dishes

Every time the holidays roll around, I’m faced with a dilemma….what to make for my vegetarian family and friends to have for supper.  I don’t want them to only eat a couple side dishes or worse yet a plain garden salad.  That just doesn’t seem fair.  I always try to have something that would work […]

Souper Sunday: Simple and Delicious Tomato Soup Recipe

Tomato soup is one of my favorite soups. I love to pair it with grilled cheese sandwiches like my mom did when I was growing up. Oh yum! When I began making my soups from scratch I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to make a good soup due to the awful tomatoes we seem to get most of the […]

Vegetarian Biscuits and Gravy Even a Meat-Eater Will Love

My all-time favorite breakfast is biscuits and gravy and when I became a vegetarian several years ago, I thought I would never enjoy this dish again. After playing around with some meat replacements (most of which were really gross), I came up with this easy recipe which resulted in vegetarian biscuits and gravy that is so tasty that even […]

Keep Calm and Grill On With MorningStar Farms Veggie Burgers

Did you eat too much this holiday season? Are you still being faithful to those New Year’s Resolutions you made about eating better?  With the NFL play-offs and Super Bowl coming up you are likely to face some tough food choices at barbecues and other gatherings. When MorningStar Farms contacted me about sharing their products with my readers I very quickly […]

Sneaky Pasta Sauce

  Most children do not get enough vegetables and fruits into their diets. We all know this. I try to make sure my kiddos get what they need nutritionally, but I admit that I fail a lot of the time. That is one reason I have been trying to find recipes that incorporate a lot […]

Vegetarian (or not) “Chicken” Pot Pie

In my book, chicken pot pie is serious comfort food. It reminds me of my childhood and is always satisfying. Now that it is heating up here in the desert, I figured I had better make this tasty dish one last time before the summer prevents it. As yummy as this recipe is, cooking with […]
