      • French Onion Soup

        Cold nights are upon us now. Nothing says cozy warm like hot soup. Soup is pretty much one of our favorite foods, so you might see more soup recipes in the future. We took a little break from this blog, because I was experiencing allergic reactions. I was not sure what was causing th

      • German Potato Soup

        We were recently invited to an Oktoberfest potluck. I was really excited to make Kartoffelsuppe or German Potato Soup. I have made milk or cream based potato soups a lot in the past. This time I made a broth based soup instead. The soup was much lighter, and that made it all the more

      • Peach and Blueberry Crisp

        Summer is finally here! Last year I made fruit salad a lot with blueberries and peaches. It was always fresh compliment to our summer meals. I wanted to bring those summer flavors to a potluck in a new way. I love crisps, so I put them together in a crisp!


      • Potato Bake

        We recently took a trip to St. John's in Newfoundland, Canada. While we were there we ate a lot of comfort food, and that is what inspired this dish. It is a simple dish that can be eaten with dinner, or as a breakfast. It is easy to toss together and you can add in your favorite

        We just received our first Spring CSA basket. It came with a little bunch of asparagus! I am so excited for all of the fresh veg we will be getting in our baskets! This is something quick and easy you can cook up for a snack, lunch, or dinner. It is one of our favorites.

      • Vegan Cornbread

        This vegan cornbread is very tasty. You will not miss the eggs and the milk at all. It had a great texture and really complimented our baked beans! I have seen variations using maple syrup to sweeten it up a little. I also think adding some corn to it would make it even better!

      • Stuffed Mushrooms

        We had been craving stuffed mushrooms for some time. We kind of threw this together with what we had left over from previous meals. They turned out to be very tasty. We ate them for dinner with a spinach salad, but they would also make great party hors d'oeuvres.

      • Maple and Brown Sugar Baked Beans

        These beans are to die for! We really could not stop eating
        them. We made ours a little more spicy than the recipe called.
        It was the perfect combo of spicy and sweet. These beans can be
        the perfect comfort food or a great cookout food when the warmer
        weather comes

      • Linguine with Zucchini and Mushrooms

        This recipe is from Tony. He whipped this up one day after work and it was delicious. Tony doesn't measure when he cooks so below you will see the ingredients and you can add as much of each one as you would like! Sometimes things are just better that way anyway!
      • Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes

        These banana pancakes turned out to be super delicious! I know, super, not
        a sophisticated description word, but honestly though there is no other way
        to explain them. Maybe you could add a "thumbs up" along with the word
        super. Seriously, the combo of whole w

      • Italian Meatball Soup

        This soup is a nice mix of light and hearty. The broth is rather light, but then you have your hearty meatballs. We used Tony's delicious turkey meatballs for this soup.

      • Roasted Veggie Lasagna

        I have been feeling pretty burnt out on meat lately. Those who know me, know it does not always appeal to me. Tony has been wanting lasagna for a few days so I suggested a vegetable lasagna. I decided to roast the vegetables. There is just something about roasted vegetables. Roasti

      • Hearty Minestrone Soup

        So, enough pretending it is summer with the ice cream. Time for some warm soup again! This minestrone turned out to be very delicious. You can add whatever you would like. This turned out to be a very hearty soup. Perfect for this winter weather!

      • Vegan, Coconut and Key Lime "Ice Cream"

        Last week we were in Savannah. The weather was warm and around 70 degrees. It made us think of summer and what says summer more than key lime! This is a yummy dairy free ice cream and it is sure to remind you of those long summer days.

      • Oatmeal Cookies

        Every once in a while I want to post a sweet treat for everyone, since my real passion lies with baking! I just can't bake all of the time, because that means I will be eating baked goods all of time. That would not be good, haha. This recipe came from The Pioneer Woman.

      • Whole Wheat Bread

        We made this bread for our Thanksgiving stuffing. This is a simple recipe that I found on and altered slightly. I used about half of the honey that the recipe called for. I did not want a very sweet bread. I also used all whole wheat flour instead of part whole wheat flour a

      • Smoked Turkey Soup

        We made this soup using our left over Thanksgiving turkey. We smoked out turkey on the Big Green Egg. You could smoke turkey legs for this soup or just roast them in the oven. I didn't get to do a whole lot of measuring for this recipe. I just kind of played it by ear since we were using
