Squash & Tomato Gratin

You can tell that spring is in the air, as lot of my recent posts seem to be about vegetables.  Spring means that the Farmer’s Market will soon be open – Yeah!

When I think of eating a mix of vegetables at dinner, my mind immediately goes to a stir fry. One afternoon I decided to look for a different way to bring a variety of vegetables to the dinner table, in a non-stir fry format.  I pulled out some of my cookbooks and started looking at side dish recipes.  Nothing was jumping off the page and grabbing my attention.

Raw Brownie Balls

Today the role of guest foodie will be played by Connie’s sister, Cherie.

I am constantly looking for healthy recipes and ways to make not-so-healthy foods healthier. I am known for adding protein powder to just about anything, and sneaking veggies in where they don’t belong – or so I am told 🙂

Unlike my sister, I tend to avoid cooking with Bacon, much to my husband’s dismay. I was excited when Connie sent me a link to a recipe for cookie dough balls; which are healthier than they sound.

Coconut Almond Cookie Sandwich

I have mentioned before how I love getting supermarket check-out cooking magazines.  Well, I once again gave into my impulse and grabbed the January/February issue of The Food Network Magazine.  The cover featured a delicious bowl of chili that caught my eye.

Bacon Wrapped Almond Stuffed Dates

These are little bites of heaven, and I thought that they would be the perfect recipe to share leading up to Valentine’s Day.  You may be asking yourself why, and the answer is simple, I love bacon, so this is kind of like a Valentine’s treat for myself 🙂

Peanut Butter and Jam Chicken

In fulfilling my New Years Resolution, I grabbed a cookbook off the shelf in the search of a new chicken soup recipe.  As I was turning the pages PB&J Chicken caught my eye.  Did that just say what I think it did?  When I flipped back I was surprised and intrigued.  Peanut Butter and Jam Chicken?  Well, I like peanut butter, I like jam and I like chicken, so I had to see how this was going to turn out!

Green Beans Almondine

Vegetables.  I love them.  OK, I know I say I love a lot of things, bacon, chocolate, peanut butter, etc, but I do love vegetables.  There isn’t anything they can’t do.  Soups, salads, entrées and, of course, side dishes.

Peanut Butter Crumb Topping

I have to admit, I don’t always bake from scratch.  It’s not because I don’t want to but we don’t always have the time or all the ingredients needed on hand.  There are those times when you have to cook for a pot luck at work or for your child’s school bake sale, and weeknight baking takes up a lot of time after getting dinner to the table and lunches ready for the next day.
