I guess I should probably start posting local recipes when something just starts becoming available, not when the season is ending.  Hopefully someone out there other than me has garlic scapes that need using up 😀  In any case, at least this recipe will be here for next year. Before I go any further, I […]

Polenta Lasagna

This polenta lasagna is so delicious!  It’s so quick and easy to throw together once the polenta is made and cooled.  With premade polenta, and pasta sauce this is such a quick meal to throw together! I love polenta.  Like really, I absolutely love the stuff, but it has to be made right.  Honestly, you […]

Well, salad season is in full force.  I don’t know about you, but for a lot of meals, heavy, cooked foods just don’t sound good to me when it’s hot outside(and inside for that matter).  I actually have another salad dressing to share with you in a few days but for now, this one is […]

I really didn’t want to post another sweet thing today.  I never thought I’d say it, but I’ve had enough sweets for a while.  Between the crisp(plus another kind of crisp we made this weekend as well but didn’t have time to photo because it was gone so fast) and the cupcakes that I’ll post […]

Refried Beans and Guacamole

This was our dinner the other night.  A little different.  And considering I made the chips from scratch it didn’t really take any less time than a more traditional dinner, but it was still really good.  Plus you could use store bought chips if you really wanted too.  I actually had the refried beans frozen […]
