Stir-N-Roll Pie Crust

Stir-N-Roll Pie Crust

If making pie crust makes you crumble, try this one!  It’s perfect for sweet or savory pies and is my favorite for apple pie. I use it for Rita’s Pumpkin Pie too, which is the only way I make my Thanksgiving  pumpkin pies. Now to the […]

Edamame Green Monster Dip

Edamame Green Monster Dip

  Scare up this hummus with edamame and walnuts for your munchkins to dig into before their Halloween treats. A healthy bunch of parsley makes the scary-good green color, boosts Vitamins K and C, adds flavinoids too, which function as antioxidants. And of course loads […]

Salmon with Ginger Corn Salsa

Salmon with Ginger Corn Salsa

What inspires you to try a recipe or choose a dish at a restaurant? Sometimes familiar flavors hit the spot, or ‘what would that taste like?’ makes the choice. I often go with the unfamiliar which is why I tried this recipe from Cooking Light […]

Apple-Rhubarb-Ginger Galette

Apple-Rhubarb-Ginger Galette

A galette is my cheater version of pie. Just one crust to roll and no pie pan fussing! Perfect for stone fruits, apples, berries, rhubarb, and oven ready in about 30 minutes. Or maybe a few minutes more if it’s your first time. This is […]

It doesn’t get any easier than beef with salsa-raisin sauce for this spicy sandwich.  Let your slow cooker do the cooking, then pick up a bag of ready-cut coleslaw and soft dinner rolls or burger buns. You’ll be ready for Super Bowl Sunday or a […]

Speedy No-Knead Artisan Bread

Speedy No-Knead Artisan Bread

 January is National Baking Month, so even though I bake year-round (including microwave English Muffin Bread in summer), I thought it would be a good time to share this new (to me) speedy version of the no-knead bread I posted a few years ago. I […]

Tomato-Peach-Mint Bruschetta

Tomato-Peach-Mint Bruschetta

The devastating fires just 75 miles from here make thinking about recipes seem so insignificant. Yet we still fuel body and soul as we continue on. End-of-summer golden tomatoes and peaches make this classic tomato-topped toast called Bruschetta. (Pronounced “broos KET tah”). I like mint […]

Banana Avocado Muffins

Banana Avocado Muffins

Why add mashed avocado to muffins? Because avocados are full of polyunsaturated fat (‘good fat’), are a good source of fiber (about 9 grams per avocado), are high in minerals and phytonutrients like Vitamin E, C, folate, magnesium, AND can replace other fat in baking […]

Life is good with a raisin oatmeal cookie! These are wonderful after-school snack or take-along cookies made even better because they are very low in fat and sugar. A little yogurt and oil substitute for butter, and there’s not too much brown sugar. Nutritionals clock […]
