Jamie Oliver’s Vegetable Bolognese

This has become one of my favorite vegetarian dishes, vegan if you skip the shredded parmesan cheese. There is so much flavor from this rather simple recipe. It only takes about 40 minutes to prepare from start to table. The porcini mushrooms, red wine, fresh herbs and breadcrumbs add so much enjoyment to each bite. […]

Garlic Basil Chicken with Tomato Sauce

I love a simple recipe. By simple I mean two key things, simple ingredients and simple to make. This dish I found on Pinterest on the Pinch of Yum blog met both criteria and is sure to be a go to recipe. You could make this dish with your favorite jarred sauce; though, I’d follow the […]

Cavatelli with Vegetables and Olive Oil

Cavatelli is an often forgotten pasta. You probably don’t recall what it looks like when you see it on a menu, but when you see it you go “oh yes, I’ve had that before.”  It doesn’t have a familiar shape like bowtie, fusilli, or penne pasta. Cavatelli is great for sauces that are oil based, like this […]

Swiss Chard, White Bean and Lentil Bake

Since adding vegetarian to about half our weekly meals several years ago, I have come to appreciate a casserole or in this case a “bake.”  There’s really no difference.  Combine a bunch of complimentary ingredients and top with some cheese.  So much right. This dish can be altered by switching out lentils with couscous or […]

Mother’s Day Vegetable Tart

  It’s been a good month plus since I’ve participated in a Sunday Supper event with my fellow food bloggers. The theme this week is Mother’s Day. I had the perfect recipe picked out after asking my wife what she wanted me to make for her this weekend. She had her eye, or is it […]

Kale, White Bean and Sausage Soup

I was definitely coming down with something and knew a good hearty soup would help get me through a couple days of sickness. Sadly by the following day when I finally made it to the doctor I found out the flu that has become an epidemic was what I had. This soup definitely helped; though, […]

Jalapeno Popper Chicken Chili

I love participating in the group #SundaySupper where over 50 fellow food bloggers get together every weekend to share our recipes with each other and anyone else on the web. Last week’s Soul Warming theme netted a handful of recipes I couldn’t wait to try.  On top of that list was Hezzi-D’s Jalapeno Popper Chicken […]

Cilantro-Parsley Pesto Pasta with Tomatoes and Feta

There is always cilantro in the house now that we live in Texas. It’s mostly used for tacos or on the occasional vegetarian dish chopped up to enhance flavor to a dish. With an Italian heritage, it’s hard to imagine a pesto without basil. After trying this dish that I found on the food blog […]

Virtual Chili Cook Off

Chili has become the food challenge of most places of business. Both of my last two jobs have hosted Chili Cook Offs. I have always been too busy to make any of these challenges, but if, and when I finally do, here is the recipe I plan to use. It has a couple of nice […]
