Healthy Onion Dip

This healthy Greek yogurt onion dip is great for veggies, snacks, and chips. You're going to love it with dinners too! Vegetarian recipe.

I originally published this healthy onion dip for dipping with fried pierogies, but I have since enjoyed it with veggies as well. Joe likes it with chips. I have been digging through the archives of my little old blog (all 2,000 posts) over the last couple of weeks, and I found a bunch of recipes buried in old posts. I have been typing them up in my new recipe format this weekend, so that’s why they’ve all published at the same time.

Now that I have figured that out, my food choices have expanded … Read more

A couple years ago, we discovered a local family who raises chickens and sells their extra eggs. We were giddy to find them; they even gave us a tour of the animals, enclosures, and feeding methods. We left knowing exactly how … Read more

The Best Broccoli Salad Recipe

The Best Broccoli Salad You'll Ever Eat

I love broccoli. I love it raw, baked, drenched in cheese, and splashed with balsamic vinegar. I’ve never met a broccoli dish I didn’t like. When Joe and I were thinking about adding a vegetable dish to our beloved Thanksgiving feast, we both thought of broccoli, but neither of us had a recipe in mind. Suddenly, it was the night before our feast, and we still hadn’t decided on a recipe. I took matters into my own hands. I was glad to have a couple of bags of Beneforté® broccoli. It’s washed, cut in bite-sized pieces, and ready to use, so … Read more
