It’s that time of year when zucchini starts to dominate the garden. This year I planted zucchini just so I could make Zucchini Bread. I’m so glad I did. This Zucchini Bread is really good, and very easy to make.

It’s even easier if you make your own mixes using the free...

Have you ever tried the lettuce wraps at PF Changs? Well, I love them, so I decided to make my own version at home. It has become one of my favorite thins to eat for lunch. It’s tasty, healthy, and easy to make ahead for those days I’m in a rush. It made it even yummier this time that many of the ingredients came from my garden. A pretty great way to do what George would call  “living off...

My Mother-In-Law served these Zesty Green Beans at Thanksgiving dinner. They were so good, I could hardly wait to come home and post them.

I love it any time a simple side dish makes the meal, especially when it’s a vegetable. Thanks Mom!

Here is a great recipe to use with the Homemade Onion Soup Mix recipe on this site. It is one of my favorite ways to make potatoes.

These potatoes are a great side dish with chicken or steak. Often when I grill for dinner, this is my side dish of choice. It is also a popular dish for pot luck...

If you enjoy Cilantro Lime Dressing at restaurants, you’ll love this dressing. We had it with Sweet Pork Salad and it was fantastic!

You can make it as spicy as you want by adjusting the amount of or kind of peppers you use. I used a mild type of Jalapeno pepper I grew in my garden this year. I...

I had just been to the grocery store and bought some fresh ears of corn (un-shucked). Then I had a whim to take the kids camping. I didn’t want to see the corn go to waste, so I searched around a bit to see if I could cook them in the camp fire. Sure enough, it can be done.

Some of the instructions I found seemed a bit complicated, so I tried the most simple, and hit the...

Talk about a refreshing salad! This salad is so crisp and tasty, with just the right amount of sweet.

I never liked asparagus until the day I tried this salad. Now I make it as a side by itself, but always cooked this way; lightly sautéed with garlic and lemon… delish!

A friend of mine brought this salsa to our book club the other night and I thought it was fantastic! I was so happy to find that it is really easy to make, and is gluten and casein (milk) free too. And with tomatoes, onions, and corn coming out of the garden I thought it would be the perfect time!

The Italian Dressing Mix is the same one I use in the Italian Chicken recipe on...

I consider myself quite capable of self-control when it comes to the gluten free diet, but when I see Pan Fried Noodles at a Chinese restaurant I start to lose all reason. Curse you food court!

I needed to get that little devil off my shoulder, so I made some Pan Fried Noodles for lunch yesterday.

I used cubed turkey for the meat, and broccoli, carrots,...

I love it! Fresh garden vegetables for dinner just can’t be beat. I’ve been looking forward to this for weeks. I thought I’d start posting some of our favorite meals from the garden for those who, like me, are ready to have some of that weeding pay off. If you don’t have a garden, just go to your local farmers market and enjoy fresh vegetables that someone else weeded!
