Quick and Easy Taco Soup

Image

It is always good to have a few recipes that you can whip up out of the pantry staples you already have on hand.  It's even better if those recipes also happen to be freezer friendly so that you can simply throw the ingredients together in a bag and freeze them for a later, busier [...]

Skinny Shepherd’s Pie

Image

Shepherd's Pie has never been one of those recipes I've just been dying to make.  To be perfectly honest, it just doesn't have a whole lot of appeal.  It's certainly not much to look at, and quite frankly just the name invokes thoughts of tasteless English mush.  In fact, I probably would have gone my [...]

Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Image

I'm sure we all have our own holiday must-haves, but for me it is just doesn't feel like Thanksgiving without Brussels Sprouts! I love them boiled or baked or sautéed, but my absolute favorite way to prepare these cute little buggers is roasting them with a little olive oil, salt & pepper, & parmesan cheese. [...]

Roasted Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

Image

Friends, it is time to face the cold hard facts:  November & December are not kind when it comes to counting calories. One Thanksgiving dinner alone can provide the caloric requirements for a small country, and that's not even counting the pie.  (Mmmmmmmm......pie.....) I hate watching my weight, I really do.  I especially hate that [...]

Skinny Pumpkin Bread

Image

There is just something about fall. Come September I am ready for boots and sweaters and a whole lot of coziness.  I crave maple syrup and hot apple cider and soup of all kinds. And pumpkin.  Oh, how I crave pumpkin! This year, since I am still *trying* to be good, I thought I would [...]

Best Ever Homemade Mac & Cheese

Image

Mmmmmm....is there any comfort food quite as, well, comforting, as homemade mac & cheese?  Sure it's a little more effort than, say, that stuff in the blue, but oh man is it worth the extra time!  The best part about this recipe is that it will either feed a crowd or make enough to freeze [...]

Butternut Squash Lasagna {Recipe}

Image

This super simple butternut squash lasagna has been one of my go-to recipes for years and years now--so long I can't even remember where I first found it.  It is one of those dishes that always pleases vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.  Even better, even though it seems like a lot of work, it is deceptively [...]

Deep Fried Cauliflower {with Buffalo Dipping Sauce}

Image

When my husband first introduced me to these little gems, a long-time Soukup family recipe, I have to admit, I was a little skeptical.    The flour, the egg, the breadcrumbs, the Crisco....they just seemed like SO much work and such a mess for so little payout.  I mean cauliflower?  Really? Until, of course, I [...]

Dairy-Free Chocolate Ice Cream with Toasted Coconut {Recipe}

Dairy Free Chocolate Ice Cream with Toasted Coconut. YUM! This amazing homemade ice cream uses Silk almond milk, coconut milk, & coconut oil to create the creamiest non-dairy ice cream you will ever try! You won’t believe it’s dairy free!

There are many, many reasons I love my stand mixer, but when husband surprised me a few years ago with an ice cream maker attachment, it brought that love to a whole new level.  Homemade ice-cream?  I could eat it all day long!  Mmmmmm....ice cream....so good..... When it comes to flavor, we are a family [...]

Fresh Fruit Salad with Honey Lemon & Mint Syrup {Recipe}

Image

There's no better compliment to a simple brunch or barbecue menu than a delicious fruit salad.  While fruit salad can be as simple as cutting up your favorite types of fruit and placing it in a bowl, adding just a touch of homemade syrup seems to intensify the flavors of the fresh fruit, making it [...]

30 Minute Corn & Black Bean Chili {Recipe}

Image

This is hands down my favorite chili recipe ever!  Not only is it super easy, coming together in less than 30 minutes, it uses mostly basic pantry staples which makes it super thrifty too.  The key to the super fresh flavor is the green verde chili, so don't skip that part! As usual, I used [...]

Sweet & Spicy Coleslaw {Recipe}

Image

I don't know how it works in your house, but around here, as soon as the weather starts to warm up, we start grilling as much as possible!  Our favorite grill fare (by far!) is a good old fashioned cheeseburger (or veggie burger, as the case may be), and to me nothing goes better with [...]

Fresh Veggie Egg Scramble {Recipe}

Image

I am so sad that today is our last day of the Worden Farm season!  (SW Florida residents, don't miss the FREE Prospective Member Event happening this afternoon!)  We have SO enjoyed our overabundance of fresh veggies for the past 20 weeks, and we will be counting the days until the new season begins next [...]

Easy Eggplant Parmesan {Recipe}

Image

I absolutely adore eggplant parmesan. All that ooey gooey cheesy saucy comfort food deliciousness.....what's not to love?  Eggplants used to intimidate me until I discovered the secret to good eggplant texture.   Do you want to know what it is?  Salt.  Lots and lots and lots of salt.  Weird, huh?  I know.  But it works. And [...]

Fresh Lemon & Sage Veggie Pasta {Recipe}

Image

After almost two full seasons of Worden Farm veggie goodness, my kids have (thankfully) gone from literally freaking out at the site of anything green to actually asking for more vegetables on a regular basis.  It's a transformation I never expected, but I am definitely not complaining! Even so, their all-time favorite food is still [...]
