Autumn Salad

As a follow-on to the Indian Summer Salad, I’ve been working on this beauty.   It doesn’t have much to do with the season, except the spectacular fall colors.  I’ve been bringing it to family events.

Carrot Vindaloo Soup

This was a surprise victory.  My husband said it was the best carrot soup he’s ever had.  Do you ever have a little bit of curry left over?  Not enough for lunch, but enough that you want to do something with it?  Well that is what happened to me and it turned out great!

Chicken Chili

I created this recipe for a chili cookoff a few years back. It didn’t win (who were those judges anway?? ;)), but it has since become a go to dinner for me especially when I need to feed a crowd or bring a meal to a neighbor. It comes together pretty quickly and I usually have the ingredients in my pantry/fridge. It’s good on its  ...

Tomato Time

My awesome in-laws put up 190 quarts of tomatoes and gave us six cases!  Canning tomatoes in late summer is a tradition and good family time.  We only got there for the last 30 quarts, but I’m glad my kids got to participate.  A couple more seasons and they will feel confident they can do it when they are grown. We use a lot of these  ...

Popovers

We made these lovely popovers for a very special Sunday breakfast and had them with fresh raspberries and whipped cream. I don’t think it really gets any better than this. Spencer’s family has been making popovers for generations, so he came with the pan in the picture. I have also made them using a muffin tin and they turn out  ...

“Baked” Potato Salad

This one is a winner!  People who don’t like regular potato salad gobble this up.  Who wouldn’t like potatoes with sour cream and bacon. Gigi introduced this recipe to us.  I’ve made it a couple times since, including Cooktober Fest! Use Costco bacon crumbles. I almost called it Solid Potato Salad, because who could forget…

Roasted Green Chillies By The Bushel

HOT news! I got a bunch of green chilies roasted and laid them out to freeze. (We ate them twice today; once in some spicy omelettes and once in a delicious new concoction: Green Chilly Dressing.) The best news is: I still have a ton left so I can experiment and use them for months to come! I’ll share the results with you. [Link to  ...

Lime Avocado Coconut Ice Cream

Summer is almost over and we hadn’t made this one time! I’d forgotten how good it is…amazing! My sis-in-law missed out the first night and when she started eating it immediately txted to find out what was in it. For sure the best dairy free home made ice cream recipe in our arsenal. (Very few store-bought dairy free ice cream  ...

Aubergine

There’s a new sheriff in town. One that is lean. And mean. And super delicious for lunch! I’m talking about Aubergine, a new-ish, fast and healthy restaurant in Orem. It has become my goto spot for a quick bite. (It doesn’t hurt that it is nestled in the corner by Sprouts Market.) I get a Mediterranean Salad with a little bit  ...
