White Chicken Chili

White Chicken Chili

This delicious white chicken chili is one of the easiest but tastiest chilies to make. We keep it in our fall/winter rotation and look forward to it every time we have it.

Salmon Cakes
Appetizers Fish

Killer Salmon Cakes

These salmon cakes are delicious and non-fishy enough to convert the most adamant of fish-haters into huge fans.

Low-Fat Lasagna

This Lasagna recipe was one of my first successes with my picky husband. It’s low-fat, tastes great, and can be modified to include any of your favorite veggies. The Hubs as I call him – well, as I started calling him as of right… now… is a fairly picky eater.  Usually, his best compliment on …

This recipe is actually the first page in my recipe collection notebook – it’s the drink that officially tells me summer is here. What could be better or more refreshing than fruit soaked in alcohol?  I suppose that is why the name Sangria means “heaven” in Spanish.  Oh wait… no, it actually means “blood” – …

Shakshuka or Shakshouka, is a North African dish of poached eggs in tomato and chili peppers. I recently learned about this meal …

Good Salad

That Good Salad

This salad is a consistent winner – it always comes out great and is repeatedly requested. I made this for a potluck party about 12 years ago when I thought to myself, “no one every brings anything healthy to potlucks, so I’m making a salad!” This one looked interesting to me, so I tried it …
