By now y’all know how much I like my baked tortilla bowls. Salads, beans, falafel, just about anything, even stir-fried vegetables seem just a little more special served in them. I did a vegetable bowl similar to this one a little while back, but something this good is worth repeating. I briefly considered a … More Vegetable Bowls
This was a typical summertime meal, simple peasant food, if you will: Swiss chard, yellow summer squash, boiled potato and bean patties. The squash and Swiss chard were cooked together in the same pot.

I do quite well at using up leftovers and not wasting food. Today was leftovers day, which doesn’t exactly provide an abundance of fertile material for a blog post. Rather than follow my gut instincts to refrain from posting at all I am posting anyway, grasping at straws in a feeble attempt to portray it … More A Leftovers Post (fake news?)
If I was served this healthy Tex-Mex dish at a restaurant I would go back and order it again and again. It was that good. The red, yellow and orange bell peppers were chopped chunky style as was the jalapeño, red and white onions and mushrooms. The cauliflower and broccoli were cut into tiny florets. … More Veggie Fajita Tacos
There was a time when (for I won’t tell you how many decades) Friday night was without fail pizza night. Then suddenly we were burned out on pizza and it rarely crossed our minds… until a snow storm was predicted in the South where snow storms are not so common. Without forethought, as if something … More Friday Night Pizza!
