This month’s theme for the recipe redux was to avoid heating up the kitchen by using a cool cooking appliance (ie not the oven). I love my big slow cooker for soups, but I don’t eat many soups during summer. The zucchini in my garden have been plentiful for a few weeks now, at one point I had a pile of 14 on my kitchen counter! Therefore, zucchini boats were in order. To fit in with the redux theme, I made slow cooker Italian lentil stuffed zucchini boats! Continue reading →
Back when I posted my Lentil Loaf recipe I told you all that meatloaf was a favorite food of mine as a child. Well, my other favorite food was lasagna. Mom would always ask us what meal we wanted to have for our birthdays, and I always chose lasagna. Now I make a veggie version, and I love this small batch veggie lasagna because it only makes 4 servings. With only two of us in the house, we don’t have to eat lasagna until we are tired of it!

I love foods you can dip. Ok, maybe I just love finger foods and eating with my hands. I feel like a kid again. Or maybe it’s the dip. Dips add another dimension of flavor and texture to the food. I love dips! Whatever your reason to dig in with your hands, this recipe has it all. Crunchy coating and savory sauce. Dig in!
Today I have a simple recipe to share. I have always loved ravioli, a comfort food from my childhood. This bake is lasagna like, with layers of noodles, cheese, sauce, and veggies. If you still have family hanging around after the holidays, this dish can be adapted to fit anyone’s taste. It goes in and out of the oven in a cinch!
Hello Friends! This is another recipe fantastic for football season! Some thin crust pizzas lack in crust texture. You get a slice and it flops in your hand. The flavor is all there, but that’s just because you have a delivery service for ooey-gooey cheese. This pizza crust is thin and crispy, the best of both worlds!
Zucchini is a favorite summer time staple of mine. If you have ever grown zucchini you know that often times you end up with more zucchini than you can use and this recipe is great way to devour those delectable summer time treats!
This sandwich is a vegetarian twist on the Italian grinder. I have made this classic recipe a little easier by using simple marinara sauce, made zesty with garlic and lots of red pepper flakes, and a little tastier by toasting it in the oven!
