This recipe is a quick and flavorful way to use up an otherwise unassuming gourd. Simply baked with a slathering of marinara sauce, a sprinkling of cheese, and topped with crispy toasted garlic breadcrumbs (perhaps the best part of the entire thing). It’s like a deconstructed eggplant parmesan… but with squash (although you could very […]

This hummus is crazy delicious. It’s savory, creamy, smoky, subtly spiced, slightly sweet from the squash and lemony. This is the perfect dip to have on hand for a week of healthy snacking. It would also be great for entertaining or taking along to parties. It gets its flavor from both roasted and fresh garlic, […]

If you’ve never tried them, you must, they’re a creamy, sweet, nutty, summertime treat (some even say they taste like artichoke).  It’s kind of a shame to cut them because  the original flying-saucer shape is so fun and unique but truth be told, I was just looking for a quick clean and delicious side dish and […]

Although tarragon is not winter hardy around here it grows lovely indoors. Be sure and check out my herb selection at the farmers market and pick yourself up a […]

Well this is my latest creation… caused by accident.  I just came back from Florida and brought with me bunches of fresh oranges, my thoughts were to make marmalade.  Having received the beautiful bottle of Orange Balsamic Vinegar for Christmas last year, I thought I might add a bit to my marmalade.  Well, not thinking […]

The splash of vodka works as a flavor enhancer, adding a little jolt to the creamy sauce. This was one of Kenny’s favorite meatless Monday meals.  I served with a small salad and garlic bread.   8 ounces uncooked fettuccine 1 teaspoon olive oil 1 pound fresh asparagus spears, cut into 2-inch pieces 3/4 teaspoon kosher […]
