Cauliflower and Cheddar Soup

January 12, 2013 by andrea | Comments Off on Cauliflower and Cheddar Soup | Filed in Quick Cooking, Recipes, Soup/Stew, Vegetable

Before you turn up your nose at a cauliflower recipe, this easy-to-make soup really is delicious. It’s similar in flavor to potato cheese soup but lighter in texture and not as rich. I love cauliflower but I didn’t pick up much cauliflower flavor…mostly the sharp cheddar. Is there anything more comforting than a hot bowl of […]

Heartland Turkey and Vegetable Chowder

November 29, 2012 by andrea | Comments Off on Heartland Turkey and Vegetable Chowder | Filed in Comfort Food, Holidays, Main Dish, Recipes, Soup/Stew, Thanksgiving, Turkey, Vegetable

I’m always on the search for new ways to use up leftover turkey, which is what led me to this delicious soup. It’s loaded with fresh veggies and herbs, and you can substitute different veggies depending on what you have on hand. For instance, I used green beans instead of zucchini. Serve with crusty bread […]

Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes with Chipotle Chile

November 19, 2012 by andrea | Comments Off on Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes with Chipotle Chile | Filed in Christmas, Holidays, Potatoes, Recipes, Side Dish, Southwestern, Thanksgiving, Vegetable, Vegetarian

I love sweet potatoes (yams) but I’m not a fan of the cloyingly sweet dishes that call for sugar and marshmallows. Instead, I prefer savory sweet potato recipes like this one that includes smoky chipotle chiles. The heat of the chiles is really delicious with the natural sweetness of the sweet potatoes. This recipe is perfect […]

Oven-Roasted Fries

September 18, 2012 by andrea | Comments Off on Oven-Roasted Fries | Filed in Appetizer, Kid-friendly, Potatoes, Recipes, Side Dish, Snack, Vegetable, Vegetarian

  These delicious thick-cut fries couldn’t be any easier to make! I served them with a smoky Chipotle Mayo dipping sauce along side grilled burgers…sooo good! Instead of using non-stick spray on the baking sheet, I lined it with parchment paper. In the past, I’ve had potatoes stick to the pan even with the non-stick spray but […]

July 2, 2012 by andrea | 1 Comment | Filed in Grilling/BBQ, Italian, Quick Cooking, Recipes, Sandwich, Vegetable, Vegetarian

I made this Italian-inspired sandwich recently for a friend’s birthday lunch. It’s hearty, delicious and a creative way to enjoy a meat-free meal! Think of a caprese salad (tomato, basil and fresh mozzarella with a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar) in the form of a sandwich with the addition of a grilled portobella mushroom…Delish! To prep the portobella mushrooms, cut off […]

Shredded Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

November 20, 2011 by andrea | 2 Comments | Filed in Recipes, Side Dish, Thanksgiving, Vegetable

Brussels sprouts…people either love ’em or hate ’em. I happen to love ’em and this recipe elevates the humble, often hated vegetable. I loved the texture of the shredded brussels and the added smokiness and saltiness of the bacon. This is a great side dish for roasted meats, especially turkey and chicken.  We had a […]

Sauteed Kale

October 17, 2011 by andrea | 2 Comments | Filed in Recipes, Side Dish, Vegetable, Vegetarian

I love greens. Kale, collards, beet greens…they all get a thumbs-up in my book. This recipe for Sauteed Kale has a slight tang from the vinegar, a little hit of spice from the red pepper flakes and lots of flavor from the sauteed red onion and garlic. It’s a perfect side dish for Italian food or roasted meats […]
