Smoky Mushroom Stroganoff

This was quick and easy to prepare, but it was kind of bland. I added a lot of salt and pepper, but it still lacked something. I used no-carb egg noodles (I couldn’t find pappardelle). Toby thought it was good, and … Continue reading

Pumpkin Bread

I know, I know, another recipe for pumpkin bread. It seems like all I make lately is pumpkin bread and squash soup! So I have discovered something pretty neat in my town. It’s called a l-i-b-r-a-r-y. They have tons of … Continue reading

Roasted Butternut Soup with Goat Cheese Toasts

I feel like I have been making a lot of squash soup lately! It’s pretty much the only squash Toby will eat, so I like to get my fill of it. I cheated on this one, and bought pre-cubed butternut … Continue reading

Sunny-side Up Lentil Salad

Let me say right off the bat that I don’t care for cold (non-lettuce) salads. Bean salads, pasta salad, none of it. So I am not sure why I even attempted this recipe. But- it was really good! I surprised … Continue reading

Kale, Potato and Onion Frittata

I had such high hopes for this recipe. I noticed when I was making it that there wasn’t any cheese involved, and not a whole lot of seasoning. That should have been a clue for me. This dish was B-land. I … Continue reading

Orange-Miso-Glazed Tofu and Edamame

I have been on a tofu kick lately! But I think this was maybe my least favorite recipe of the tofu bunch. It was good, but not great. The tofu didn’t taste like anything (no orange or miso taste at … Continue reading

Three-Cheese Macaroni

This recipe is a “lightened up” version of macaroni and cheese. To lighten it up, they use evaporated milk, less cheese, and cauliflower (to thicken the sauce, I think). This was really good. REALLY GOOD. It was hard to stop … Continue reading

Corn and Chile Quesadillas

I love quesadillas, and am always looking for a new way to make them. Although this recipe calls for anaheim chiles, it says that if you can’t find them, substitute 1/4 cup of mild green chiles (from a can), so … Continue reading
