Clean out the Fridge Vegetable Soup

Thumbnail image for Clean out the Fridge Vegetable Soup March 20, 2012

This is my favorite soup.  It’s not really a big deal.  In fact it’s pretty simple, and every time I make it, it’s different.  I’ve even posted about it before using lentils and with pasta mixed in with very slightly different seasonings. This soup is incredibly adaptable.  I usually always have carrots and celery in […]

Creamy Tuna Noodle Casserole – From Scratch

OK, so tuna casserole is not exactly my favorite food.  It’s one of those things I remember having as a kid – and liking – but it wasn’t something I totally craved or anything.  I guess I have pregnancy to blame for randomly thinking of – and wanting – tuna casserole.  Plus, I’ve been on […]

Today is just one of those days.  You know those ones when you have a reasonable sized list of to-do’s but mid afternoon you look at the list and realize that almost none of it has been done?  I don’t know where the day has gone, although I can’t complain too much, I have got […]

I realize that most of what you see in this picture is cheese.  I may have been a little heavy handed with the cheese as I have been lately.   Oops.  Really, melty cheese on top of chili is so delicious, who can deny that?  I can honestly say it’s especially delicious now that I’m pregnant […]

Quinoa Stuffing Stuffed Squash

This week my column was on Hubbard squash.  As much as I love squash, I had never tried hubbard.  Usually they’re too big(especially considering that besides the kids I’m the only one eating it) and to be honest I’m a little scared of them.  When I was asking about squash for my column, a lady […]

Basic Butternut Squash Soup

You know when things start to crash and burn and you think they can’t possibly get any worse?  It’s hard to focus on anything else or to get other things that need doing done.  And then all of a sudden things turn around, everything that went wrong gets fixed, progress is made and it feels […]
