Apple Cheddar Salad

Apple Cheddar Salad

Cheddar and apples is a tough combination to beat. It was always my favorite childhood snack. These days I prefer my cheddar and apples over a bowl of greens with creamy dressing and freshly ground black pepper.

Roasted Vegetables

Roasted Vegetables

These Roasted Vegetables are good with everything, it really isn’t and exaggeration. They come together quickly and they can be a side dish or the star of the meal. They are great stirred into risotto or for breakfast with eggs. We have even eaten them topped with guacamole and salsa for a quick and delicious dinner. The possibilities are endless.

Butternut Risotto

Butternut Risotto

This Butternut Risotto is an all vegetable dish, no rice, prepared “risotto style”. Don’t worry we will do traditional risotto another time. We usually enjoy this risotto as a vegetarian dinner with a salad. We have also served it as a side dish, (side note: butternut squash pairs well with steak).

Mexican Sweet Potato Skins

Mexican Sweet Potato Skins

These Mexican Sweet Potato Skins are just so delicious, not to mention pretty healthy as well. There is just a little cheese on top and the rest of dinner is vegetables. When you are eating these, you are not thinking healthy, you’re just thinking cheesy mexican goodness.

Crock-pot Pork Roast with Rosemary

Rosemary Pork Roast

You can’t beat coming home on a cold winters’ day and being enveloped by the smell of rosemary and pork. This recipe is really fast and the house smell delicious when something has been braising all day. All the better if there is almost no work involved, especially on those exceptionally long days when you just want to get home and relax.

Winter Salad

Winter Salad

There is something about the crisp apples, sweet cranberries, and tangy feta cheese that make this salad a favorite of mine. A balsamic dressing doesn’t hurt either. Balsamic Vinegar is probably my favorite vinegar, you just can’t beat that slightly sweet tangy-ness combined with such depth of flavor.
