Basil Vinaigrette

This dressing is like summer in a jar. It is zesty, bright and perks up anything I have put it on. Mostly we use this dressing for green salads, but it is also really good tossed together with new potatoes in the Spring. You can even put it to use for breakfast. Take about ten cherry tomatoes cut in half, toss with a little dressing and serve over an omelet.

Easy Green Salad with Vinaigrette

This basic, easy to assemble salad is a follow-up post to the Roasted Sweet Potatoes. Together these two recipes make up dinner at least once a week for us. This recipe is just a guide, you can use whatever vegetables you have on hand. Sometimes I use only a couple of vegetable toppings if I’m in a hurry or we haven’t been grocery shopping in a bit. The point is this dinner is about being easy and customizable.

Banana Pancakes

Makin’ Banana Pancakes on the weekend or pretend that it’s the weekend, yeah These are great for a lazy weekend morning as well easing the Monday morning blues. I’m not much of a breakfast person during the week but sometimes a little something out of the ordinary in the form of pancakes and espresso is definitely in order.

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.

Crock-pot Pork Roast with Rosemary

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.
