A couple of weeks ago, Joe found a recipe on a scrap of yellow paper tucked in a cookbook in our dining room. Obviously, I had copied the recipe from somewhere, but I don’t know when or from where. In the margins, I’d make lots of notes and changes. I vaguely remember eating it once, deciding that the chicken was dry, and writing it off. Joe remembered it too, but he remembered liking it. He decided to make it one day last week. He usually makes our dinner in the evening, after Grace is asleep. That way, he can turn … Read more

Garden Lasagna Recipe

When I was a freshman in college, the cafeteria in the student union building served the most magnificent garden lasagna. The cafeteria was shut down during a renovation of the building, and it reopened as a fast food taco place. Or something. I don’t exactly remember. The point is that I love vegetable lasagna.

Classic French Ratatouille

How to make the best classic authentic French ratatouille recipe - This simple and easy stew includes zucchini, eggplant, and squash. It's super healthy when made the traditional way. Made on the stovetop. Whole 30, paleo approved. Low carb and vegetarian.

Several times this summer, we’ve had so much zucchini, yellow squash, and eggplant that it wouldn’t all fit in our refrigerator. Seriously, that’s a lot of vegetables.   It’s a good thing that we like to eat healthy, fresh food ’cause it’s all we’ve got.   Last week, I made No Noodle Crockpot Lasagna that popped up in my Google Reader. Instead of noodles, you’re supposed to cut zucchini, yellow squash, and eggplant in long, thin slices. Then you layer them in the crockpot with some cheese and other veggies, and cook it all day.
