Broccoli Salad

Broccoli Salad is one of the best dishes to serve in the summer! It’s all a matter of dicing some vegetables and tossing them with you favorite add-ins and mayo! It’s rich and yet not too heavy and refreshing. If you have a last minute party or guests over it’s super quick to put together….

Asian Cabbage Wedge Salad

This roasted cabbage with an Asian inspired zingy peanut vinaigrette is perfect for when you need something light or just something beyond your standard sauteed cabbage. Over the years my affinity for cabbage has grown, and it wasn’t until I tried Kim-chi that I ever actually gave it a chance in any other form. And…

Avocado Salsa

Avocado Salsa may be one of my favorite things. At Papas & Beer they have an avocado salsa that I literally go there just to have some of. And recently I saw where Tostitos was jumping on the bandwagon and releasing a jarred version. Well, it seems to me that the fresher the salsa, the…

These crispy fried potato fritters are a thing of beauty; often served with sour cream, applesauce, and cinnamon sugar they are a unique, yet simplistic item to serve. Id never had a latke until my husband made…

Sausage Balls (Gluten Free)

It is not the holidays without sausage balls. They have been a staple at Christmas time in my family as long as I can remember, mostly because I used to always request them from my mother. And they always seemed to be served at the holiday parties we went to; one way or the other…

Day After Turkey Pot Pie (Grain Free)

Thanksgiving comes just once a year, but the turkey usually lasts a few days. And its hard to want to eat turkey at every meal for days following turkey day. But put it in a pot pie? With some leftover turkey stock and drippings, some of those leftover carrots and celery you have lying around…

Garlic Ginger Asparagus w/ Tahini Lemon Sauce

Ah , asparagus, the vegetable I used to turn my nose up at. Now, one of my favorite veggies to whip up. I like my asparagus roasted with a nice char at the tops, but still with some bite at the bottom. This asparagus is brightened with the addition of some fresh ginger and the…

Roasted Brussel Sprout Salad w/ Lemon Pomegranate Dressing

Around the holidays, I’m not really okay with people using the word “salad.” But for this dish I’m making an exception. The deep roasted flavor of the shredded brussel sprouts balanced out with the light, refreshing taste of the lemon and pomegranate makes this an absolutely fabulous dish to serve around the holidays. Not only…
