Sweet Potato Asparagus Tart with Asparagus Pesto

It’s been awhile since I entered the SOS (Sweet or Savory) challenge over at Diet, Dessert, and Dogs, but when I saw this month’s ingredient, I couldn’t resist.  Asparagus is just plain awesome, and I knew the hardest part would be doing something different and creative with it, because I’ve done lots of fancy things [...]

Mushroom Spaghetti and Two more Tester Recipes

I’d been wanting to try the recipe for Mushroom Fettuccine in Appetite for Reduction for awhile, and even though I didn’t have the mushroom soup or mushrooms called for, I made due with what I DID have, and this came out SOOOO good, possibly my favorite pasta dish ever.  (And I realize I say that [...]

Pesto Vegetable Pizza

There’s nothing quite like a pizza with pesto and sun-dried tomatoes on it…those are my favorite toppings at a Western Massachusetts Pizza place of choice, and it’s even better when I can top my own, and add lots of other goodies as well.  Corn on pizza is something you see a lot of in Israel [...]

BLT Pasta and Veggie Pot Pie

I’ve been watching a lot of Food Network lately, and apparently this is where it gets me….Veggie-versions of Rachael Ray and Chef Anne Burrell recipes.  The BLT pasta recipe was actually veggie to begin with, which I find pretty ridiculous, because frankly I would’ve put bacon in it if it was something I ate, and [...]

A Little of Everything

So I keep meaning to get back to posting daily…and it just isn’t happening.  I still love cooking and taking pictures of the food I make, it’s just the actual posting that I’m getting bad at.  I will fix it though…I PROMISE.  Don’t lose hope.  A lot of the food I’ve been making lately is [...]

Spinach Pesto Pasta

If there was a gameshow where you had to speed-cook, I’d win.  And I’d make this, because I’ve got it down.  This meal came together in exactly 15 minutes from start to finish, and unlike on food network, I didn’t have any water pre-boiled or pots pre-heated.  Contrary to the picture (no time to white [...]

Garlic Scape Pesto

There are certain dishes that are so easy and delicious, I make them multiple times and go to them as a standby when I have company over.  That said, this one in particular usually vanishes so fast I can’t get a picture, and due to its vanishing act, I haven’t been able to blog about [...]

Sundried Tomato Basil Burgers

Yet another recipe courtesy of the famous Just The Food blog…and I REALLY liked this one.  My version isn’t gluten free like the original since I used plain old whole wheat flour, but I didn’t need it to be.  The only complaint I could make about these is that they were a bit mushy, but [...]

Mediterranean Pesto Pasta

Sometimes leftovers are pretty blah…other times they’re pretty great, and today’s lunch erred on the side of pretty great. We’re in painful need of a grocery shopping excursion which is planned for later tonight, but I did manage to scrape up some remnants of food and put together a pretty nice lunch for myself. I [...]

Vegan Dad’s Lasagna Rolls

I took this on as a challenge partially because of a co-worker, but I’m so glad I did. I work with a guy who is VERY lactose-intolerant, and we’re always talking about Vegan recipes…although he will eat vegan ceaser dressing with chicken… We’d been talking a lot about vegan cheese, and how/if it melts, when [...]
