OK, just looking at this picture is making me hungry. You don’t really get much better than a fully loaded potato! It can be a simple side, or a meal all on its own. Either way all of that cheese, bacon, and sour cream goodness is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Melinda and I had a serious craving that started with thoughts of potato skins, and we ended up with this awesome hasselback potatoes recipe that we’re sharing over at Real Housemoms. The thin slices mean the potato gets more crisp than the usual baked potato and the cheese can get into every nook and cranny. Go check it out!

Avocado Coleslaw is made with fresh avocado for a light, fresh, summer side.
Summer is coming to an end but there are still a few BBQ days ahead of us. Labor Day is just around the corner and MG and I are planning to have a few friends over. A few nice steaks, some roasted vegetables, and one of my newest summer favorites, Avocado Coleslaw!
Ratatouille is a light casserole of fresh vegetables. Vegan and gluten-free!
This is one of those recipes that I didn’t plan to make, it just kind of happened. I stopped at Food Lion just to grab one thing and as I walked through the produce section it was filled with all of these gorgeous summer vegetables. Yellow squash, zucchini, eggplant, bell peppers….they all looked so good. As I picked up a few squash Ratatouille popped in my head and it sounded so good I wound up leaving with a bag full of veggies (I’m going to be honest this happens to me in a lot of stores…).

This Grilled Summer Salad is a simple foil packet meal made up of fresh summer vegetables, and finished with a lime vinaigrette.
Since there are so many awesome vegetables available in the summer I signed myself up for the Morningstar Farms’ Veg of Allegiance Program, and I’ve been going meatless one day a week. It hasn’t been as hard as it sounds! I’m really lucky because there is a farmers’ market that sets up right outside of my office on Thursdays. I walk over there for lunch and pick up fresh veggies for the weekend. They have so many fresh fruits and vegetables to choose from but two things I never leave without are tomatoes and sweet corn. Sweet corn is a big deal here in Maryland and we’re at the peak of the season.
Brussels Sprouts and Chorizo can be a side dish or an easy weeknight meal.
Some nights Rick is working late and it is just me for dinner so I make something quick and easy for myself. This Brussels Sprouts and Chorizo is one of those dishes that I threw together using what I had in the refrigerator and now I make it all the time. Don’t you love it when that happens? [Read more…]
This Jalapeño Cheddar Corn Bread is a simple side dish for an easy weeknight meal.
Did you know that May was National Hamburger Month? No? I didn’t either until May was almost over, but someone mentioned it to me last week so I used it as an excuse to fit one of my childhood favorites into my weekly meal plan. That’s right guys, I went old school with some Hamburger Helper® and this amazing jalapeño cheddar corn bread. It was quick and easy and the leftovers made a great lunch!
The secret to this Cucumber and Tomato Pasta Salad is beautiful summer vegetables. A great side dish for summer BBQs.
I know I’ve said it before but I’m so glad warm weather is here. Summer is just around the corner and my mom has been working in her garden nonstop planting all of my favorite vegetables. I think that might be my favorite part of summer. My mom stops by the house every few days with an arm load of fresh, ripe tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini…whatever came out of her garden that morning. I pretty much live on cucumber and tomatoes in oil and vinegar served with homemade bread (also supplied by my mom, she really is the best). When we have guests over, or we’re just grilling out, I turn it into a pasta salad with a few simple additions.

Turkey pot pie is quick and hearty meal to make during the winter months and this Cranberry Jell-o Salad recipe is an easy side dish to serve with it
Dinner is the one time of day where everyone in the family stops what they are doing and we all sit down together. Even if it is just for 30 minutes it’s my favorite part of the day. I love to cook and I do it often but some days I just don’t have time to get everything done and I need a little help getting dinner on the table so I can enjoy some time with the family. Now that it looks like winter is here to stay pot pies are the perfect comfort food to warm us up, and on cold nights Marie Callender’s pot pies are one of my go-to quick meals for the family. They have a homemade gravy mixed with vegetables and your choice of meats, baked in a golden, perfectly flaky crust that’s made from scratch. Sawyer is always excited when I say it’s pot pie night!
