I’ve mentioned before that my in-laws tend to host fabulous brunches for us nearly every time we come for a visit. I won’t say no to that! The food is always amazing and, bonus, it gives me the opportunity to bring something as well. Normally I tend to lean toward something on the sweeter side (muffins, scones, etc.) but last time I decided to try this strata.

So I am always looking for different ways to stuff a bell pepper, such as with Israeli Couscous. Enjoy these peppers with an oaky Chardonnay. 2 bell peppers 3 large baking potatoes (about 2 1/2 pounds), cubed 1/2 cup of buttermilk 3 garlic cloves, minced 1 teaspoon thyme 1/2 cup shredded Gouda cheese 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese Salt and pepper to taste
Creamy spinach with a hint of nutmeg is baked in the oven topped with melted cheese for guiltless decadent Holiday side dish. Yes, spinach gratin just got a makeover! I brought this to my mom's last year for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. I never did get around to posting it so I knew I had to re-make this once again for all of you to try. This is a must for the holidays but if you want to make this for a smaller gathering, you can easily halve this recipe.
Summer is here and what better time to get out and grill. This past Memorial Day Weekend, that is just what we did. We Grilled Summer Veggies ~ purple onions, cherry tomatoes, zucchini, red bell pepper, and mushrooms which are not a summer vegetable, but oh so good on the grill! You can't go wrong with grilling most any vegetable.
I’ve never craved broccoli in my life, but I stand by this Parmesan-Roasted Broccoli with Pine Nuts . When I remembered I had some left over in the fridge, I smiled. About broccoli. Wait!
Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without. This was my mantra when we moved from Michigan to Indiana. We were doing or best to live ultra conservatively so that we could make gargantuan strides toward paying down our recently acquired student loans. Too bad life got in the way and our plans for gargantuan loan payments were foiled by several visits to the ER (2 by ambulance), major car repairs for both our vehicles and ya da ya da, life is expensive.
