Garlic Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Cheese

When I met my husband, he was convinced that asparagus was the most disgusting, slimy, revolting vegetable on the planet. “You’ve never had my asparagus,” I told him. He’d only eaten asparagus out of a can, soggy and salty and mush. That is no way to eat any vegetable, but especially fragile asparagus spears. The best way to eat it is freshly cut from the garden, drizzled with olive oil, and roasted. You can find the details of that roasting method in my egg and asparagus salad post. This recipe takes my favorite method and makes it even more appealing … Read more

Bacon Cheddar Breakfast Biscuits

Bacon & Cheddar Biscuits Recipe - Made with Bisquick, bacon, and lots of cheddar cheese, these breakfast or brunch biscuits are amazing! Perfect comfort food! Also great for dinner!

Balsamic Chicken with Mushrooms

The best balsamic chicken recipe - Simple and easy skillet recipe. Gluten-free meal with veggies.

Balsamic vinegar improves almost every food. This chicken came out juicy and tender, and the mushrooms were perfectly cooked – firm but slightly tender and caramelized. I’m definitely going to ask Joe to make it more often in the days ahead.

Pasta with Tomato Gorgonzola Sauce

Joe and I have been making this recipe for years and years, perhaps since before we were even married. I haven’t got the faintest idea where the original recipe came from; it’s one of those hand-written recipe cards that found its way into our kitchen. We’ve tweaked it many times over the years, making minor improvements here and there. Because it reheats wonderfully, this is one of our favorite make-ahead meals. Especially when we know ahead of time that we will be in a rush after work, we make this the night before we plan to eat it. It’s better … Read more

Zucchini with pasta and chicken. Pasta primavera. Zucchini bake. Veggie lasagna. Ratatouille. Batter-dipped zucchini. Pan fried zucchini. Grilled zucchini. I’m sure we’ve eaten it other ways, too, but I can’t remember them all. I made up this recipe to use some of our glut of the fabulous vegetable after we tired … Read more
