Broccoli Salad

If I were to name one food that makes me think of my mom, it would be broccoli salad. You could always find it on the table at special holiday gatherings such as Christmas or Easter.   Although I was never a fan of cooked broccoli (I’ve gotten better), I loved broccoli salad. This is...

Old Fashioned Deviled Eggs

I think of deviled eggs as an old fashioned picnic food.  The kind of food I’d expect to find at my grandma’s family reunion, where the median age ran  north of 60.   Despite it’s fuddy duddy status, it’s a perennial favorite. Whenever I set out to make deviled eggs, I pull out the trusty...

Spinach Ham & Cheese Quiche

A friend would bring this to a morning brunch meeting I used to attend and it was always so good I finally asked for her recipe.   I had never made quiche before and was pleased to add this dish to my repertoire.  I have since tweaked it a bit to suit my preferences and...

Black Bean Falafel

This is a recipe I’ve been making for several years and could have sworn already had it up on my blog, but alas, I guess I never got around to it. I got it from a friend, who I think said she got it from Cooking Light, but I haven’t found it online anywhere,...

Summer Squash Tomato Bake

This is a recipe I got from my mom — I’m sure there are lots of versions out there, but I didn’t see any exactly like she made it, so I’m sharing this version.   It’s not a fussy recipe, feel free to play with the proportions, substitute with what you have on hand, etc....

Taco Tuesday, Trader Joe style

Note:  I first shared this recipe before we started eating paleo.  I’ve added some paleo updates to reflect how we eat it now. 6/18/12 Tacos seem to be in high rotation in our family meal plan, so I thought I’d document what our “official” taco recipe is.    I’m sure many people have similar variations,...

We Call It Crack Bread

Last year, I got really into bread baking and tried quite a few different bread recipes.  Over time, however, there has only been one recipe that I keep coming back to.  It is so delicious, that my carb-conscious-Zone-focused-not-quite-Paleo-diet husband devours it and has taken to calling it “Crack Bread”. The recipe is available on...

WFMW:  Tips for Baking with Yeast

It’s been so long since I’ve participated in a Works For Me Wednesday, I decide to double up my tips today.  I can’t take credit for either of these gems, but both have been so helpful as I’ve gotten more and more practice in the world of yeast baking. Tip #1  – Use a...

Blonde Brownies

Hubby brought this recipe to our marriage by way of his Grandma.  For a while I “pooh poohed” them, in favor of my favorite “blonde brownie”, aka Congo Bars.  But I have come around and find this recipe quite tasty.  They are much gooier than the Congo Bars I make and don’t make as...
