Garbanzo Bean (Chick Pea) Salad

I splurged during many recent holiday celebrations.  I ate many foods that I typically avoid.  When I woke up this morning I was paying the price….I felt lousy.  “You are what you eat” came to mind.  I had been eating crap and that is exactly how I felt.  I knew that it was time to end my […]

Parmesan Pasta

Quick, Easy, And Delicious Creamy Parmesan Pasta

I was planning on making spaghetti with tomato sauce yesterday but with the new and wonderful chill in our typically tropical air caused me to crave comfort food.  Comfort food to me is cheesy and creamy.  Spaghetti and red sauce is good but it is not wasn’t the creamy cheesy that I desired. I headed to the kitchen to see what […]

Au Gratin Poatoes

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

I absolutely love cheese and I love potatoes so when the two come together I am in bliss.  Homemade Creamy Au Gratin potatoes is one of my favorite side dishes.  I do not prepare it often, because it is certainly not the most healthy dish, I usually reserve it for a special dinner.   My kids love this potato […]

A little over a year ago I learned about quinoa.  I took the brown rice out of the casserole and […]

Slow Cooker Refried Beans

Slow Cooker Refried Beans

I love refried beans.  I use them whenever I make tacos or quesadillas.  I also like them on a tortilla with cheese.  I decided it was time to make homemade refried beans. I looked over a ton of recipes, many called for lard or bacon grease, I really didn’t want to go that route.  I found one […]

Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Broccoli Cheddar Soup (NO condensed soups or fake cheese!)

My kids often ask for me to take them to the broccoli cheese soup restaurant for lunch.  The other name for the restaurant is Panera Bread.  It is quite funny that Alex loves this soup because he is the only kid that I have ever known that claims to not like cheese.  Tonight I decided […]
